July Favourites

Hi everyone!

Can't believe a month has already passed - although I have to admit I have not been dilligent with blogging and been too busy making the most out of my free time outside of work!

So since the month has ended, here are my favourites of this month! To be honest there isn't very much in terms of favourites in the beauty and fashion department but the best things come in small packages!

ASOS Premium Jewelled Bib Necklace
I've featured this is my previous outfit of the day - I absolutely love this necklace! Makes any boring outfit look elegant and eye catching! Definitely a great investment this month.

O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in Happy Anniversary
I purchased this from Fragrance Direct for a bargain price of £3.99 but it looks absolutely beautiful after a couple of coats on the nails. Sparkly, subtle and simple - an all round fantastic nail polish colour for the everyday!

Zara Metallic Frame Sunglasses
I found these gorgeous sunglasses in the Zara sale for £5.99 which includes the sturdy case with cleaning cloth which I really liked! These sunglasses are a bit big and bold but I really love the shape, the silver frame and how they're a bit more special than standard plastic sunglasses!

Paperchase Oliveto Frame
One of my best friends bought me this for my birthday and I absolutely love this frame. It holds photos in place through small magnetic dots and frames my photographs very elegantly! I love how easy it is to change pictures and it's a simple yet beautiful decoration for a photo lover like me! I'd definitely recommend this as a present if you have a birthday coming up to buy for!

Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Spot Wand
I love trying out own brand face products because sometimes I don't think branded products are worth the hype - especially for spot treatments. I absolutely love this two ended stick - one end for day and another formula for night. It helps keep my spots at bay when they arise and smells wonderful! It was also reasonably priced at £3.59 compared to other brands and stores who sell plain tea tree oil for much higher prices! I'd definitely recommend this for people who have the occasional blemish and want to keep it under control.

App of the Moment: Pulse

I'm very into keeping up to date with news and media outlets so this app has been absolutely fantastic! Pulse can keep me occupied for hours looking through and reading articles, watching videos and browsing through images. Some of my favourite media outlets on here have to be BBC News, Vice (for the radical side in me) and Ted Talks (which I absolutely love watching on youtube). However, there is so much choice I'm always delving into other publications - as long as the picture/headline grips me, I'm there.

Music of the Moment
I've been absolutely loving Iggy Azalea - after seeing her briefly at Wireless Festival, I really want to see one of her solo concerts now - definitely an artist to keep at eye on!


'My World'

Well that's all for this month! Thank you for reading through - let me know if you have any recommendations; I'm always looking to try new things! :)

Love, Yinyin xxx
