Current Favourites

 
When ever the end of the month rolls around, I tend to of forgotten to make a favourites post for that month. So today I thought I would share with you some products, things and some just general stuff that I have been loving recently.
 
First of all I am going to talk about books. Not a world that I tend to dive in to much on my blog, mainly because of the lack of time I have to read. However when my summer holidays began a month ago, I made it my aim to read more ( It was even one of my goals, in my Summer bucket list- which you can read HERE) I spontaneously chose to pick up the Harry Potter books. I Never read them before, as I lived under a rock as a child and the Harry potter craze passed me by but I took it on holiday and shortly after finished it and now I am on to the second one! I really love them so far, I am finding them a great escape at the moment, as I am basically a nervous wreck, waiting for GCSE results and enrolment at the end of August.
 
 
Another Ultimate favourite of mine this month has been my new and first DSLR camera. My Canon EOS 100D with 18-55mm lens and 70-300mm lens. Its amazing, the quality is unreal and I can't wait to take more pictures with it. You can follow my Instagram HERE for photos, as I am trying to do a 'bright summer theme' with my new camera.

Not really much in the way of beauty that I have been loving this month, a couple of things though are the Rimmel match perfection foundation in the shade 010, light porcelain. I brought this for prom, thinking I wouldn't really get much wear out of it afterwards but I actually have. I am planning on doing a whole review on it, so stay tuned for that.
 
 
I have also been getting back in to nail polish and nail art recently. Some of my favourite polishes are the two rainbow glitters, by techic and Rainbow street by nails inc, because who says you cant wear rainbow glitter all year around?! I have also been loving the OPI one in planks a lot, because it is such the perfect lilac summer shade. You can see my whole nail polish collection HERE
 
 
For music this month I have been enjoying bills by lunchbox Lewis, its such a catchy song.
My favourite youtuber at the moment is sophdoesnails, you can check out her channel HERE. Her makeup and nail tutorials are amazing and I don't really know many other youtubers like her.
 
Thanks for reading x
