July Summary

July Summary: Beauty Aesthetic
It's now time for us to give our monthly summary.  July has been a really great month for us.  We've had sunshine and we both turned a year older.  With turning older we had a little celebration night out during Lisa's birthday at a country western bar in Glasgow.  Safe to say it was a little crazy with line dancing cowboys and an actual shootout with pellet guns.  That one will be remembered for a while!  Here's what you may have missed during the month of July.

Beach Inspired Beauty

KMS California Sea Salt Spray, Beautannia Brighton Candle, The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Range
When the closest thing you have to a beach is your local shopping centre's indoor sand pit, you know you need to bring the beach to you.  I'm not talking about filling your garden with sand of course but every now and then you can bring the beachy vibe to you with Summery cocktails and some sea scented beauty products.

Nails Inc Topping Lane
When this post goes live it will be my 23rd birthday (yay!) so what could be more appropriate than a cake-inspired nail polish?  I've had Nails Inc Topping Lane in my collection for a little while but haven't had a chance to put it on the nails until now.

The Overnight Oils

Posted on July 21, 2014

Overnight Oils: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, NUDE ProGenius Treatment Oil, Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Whenever my skin needs a pick me up, I always reach for my favourite overnight oils.  The miracle workers that transform your skin while you sleep.  Chances are if someone has recommended a face oil to you, it will be one of these three.  With that in mind, I thought I'd compare the three to help narrow down which one will suit your skin the best.

Topshop Stippling Brush in Cobalt

Topshop Stippling Brush in Cobalt

When it comes to beauty, I'm all for breaking the rules every now and then.  If a product doesn't work for me in one way, I'll look for other ways to make use of it.  Old cleansers which no longer suit my skin become brush cleaners and old (but clean!) mascara wands become brow tamers.  This is especially true for my brush collection with the addition of Topshop Stippling Brush in Cobalt.  Now even though it might say foundation on the handle, here's how I prefer to use it.
