Life | July Favourites

Hello August!!
Another month has passed, and how fast did it go?? We're now into August, the month my baby boy will be arriving! Scary stuff!! But let me share with you some of my favourites from July...


Skincare Product of the Month...
This month, nothing has felt better than removing my makeup with Garnier Micellar cleansing water (£3.33/Boots) at the end of the day, particularly in this sticky heat. The fresh, clean feeling the micellar water gives my skin is so nice in the evenings! And it's a fantastic product, removing my makeup quick and easily. 

Haircare Product of the Month...
My hair has really suffered during this pregnancy, it's quite dry so I've been using oil on it quite a lot, my favourite this month has been Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Treatment.

MakeUp Product of the Month...
I think my favourite makeup product this month is probably my Bourjois Intuitive Liner (£6.99/Boots). It's a fab liner and lines my eyes perfectly, one less thing to worry about! I've not been wearing much makeup lately as haven't been leaving the house as much, but I can't go without lined eyes! :)

Bath/Body Product of the Month...
I've been loving using my & Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub* (£7.00), it's a gorgeous scrub, one of my favourites ever, but I ran out last week - gutted!!

Fragrance of the Month...
can't get enough of fruity products at the mo, especially body sprays. I'm in love with my The Body Shop Satsuma Body Mist (£7.50) right now, its so summery and I can't stop smelling myself!!

Item of Clothing of the Month...
This is a hard one this month as not much fits anymore, I don't really have much that fits. I do love my Navy Maternity Vest from Beebies Baby Store (£12.99), it's really comfy and stretchy and can be layered up with kimonos, little cardigans or sleeveless jackets.

Home Product of the Month...
I'm going to have to go with Cussons Carex Family Favourites Handwashes (£1.00/Tesco), probably the only reason my 10 year old washes his hands!! It's pretty tough trying to get him to 'remember' to use soap when he washes his hands but he's obsessed with these!!

Read of the Month...
Usually when I'm resting, I catch up with blogging, but sometimes I'll grab a book or magazine and this month I've been picking up my Yummy Mummy's Survival Guide* (£6.99/Amazon) which is a really amusing book about pregnancy and beyond.

Music of the Month...
I've loved The Vamps album this month. Reminds me of McFly in their earlier days. Really catchy album!

TV of the Month...
I've been obsessed with watching baby programmes lately. One Born Every Minute is followed by She's Having A Baby, and there's a a new one called Nine Months Later, they're all fab and getting me prepared for little ones arrival!!

Film of the Month...
We watched Meet The Millers earlier this month and I found it really funny. Jennifer Aniston looks absolutely amazing in it!

Day Trip/Night Out of the Month...
We haven't been very far during the heatwave as it's just been too hot for me and I get way too uncomfortable. But we did visit Bosworth Water Park with my brother and his family one Sunday afternoon, we took a little picnic and sat in the sun whilst the kids played for a while. Its such a lovely place, lots of space for sunbathing, playing, BBQs, play areas, inflatables and it also has water sports available.

    1. She's amazing in it isn't she, what a body!! :)

  3. What a lovely month you've had! And good luck with the birth!! I know what you mean about OBEM, I was obsessed when I was pregnant (both times), I think it's a good way of preparing yourself!! Also loved The Millers, so funny!!

  4. I bought that bubblegum hand wash too - I couldn't resist. I like the thought of the Satsuma body mist, I might have to try that! x

    1. We ran out this morning, so we're onto the next smelly soap now ;)
      Oh get it its yummy!! :)

  5. I love watching One Born Every Minute! My kids love the Bubblegum handwash too, they are always washing their hands, which isn't a bad thing. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested
