July has come to an end, and what a lovely relaxing and hot month. I’m back home from my holiday, and I’m going back to work next week. I’m also back to blogging more regularly, and I have some great hauls and outfits to share with you. But first, here are my 5 favourites from the month of July.
Red bucket bag: Topshop did an amazing job with this bag. I love the colour and shape, and it holds so much stuff. I also love that you can wear it as either a hand bag or a shoulder bag.
Straw hat: This hat has been great for sun protection, and at the same time, it’s a perfect summer accessory.
Big hair clips: These types of hair clips are very trendy right now, and I see why. They make doing your hair super easy, and they look cute too.
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette: This has been my go-to palette since I got it. You can create endless amounts of looks with it, and the shades are pigmented and really easy to blend. This is definitely a new stable in my make-up collection.
The Breakfast Club (film): I’ve been wanting to watch this ’80s classic for years, and when I finally got the chance a week or so ago, I was not disappointed. If you like ’80s teen films, this is an absolute must-see. I would say that if you’re a film fan in general, this is a must-see.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love a pinky red lip, and Cherry Wet from Jeffree Star’s summer 2018 collection is a new favourite of mine.

Here’s what I wore Friday June 29. I’ve gotten a lot of use out of this second hand gingham top this past month, and I’ve mainly been wearing it like in these pictures; tied in a knot in the front.

Jeffree Star has created another beautiful summer collection, and these are the products, I’ve purchased.
I’m always the most excited to see the shades of Velour liquid lipsticks, and I was super excited about two of the shades; a pinky red called Cherry Wet and a bright orange called Coral Fixation. I love both, and they’re perfect summer shades. I also decided to buy one of the Velour lip scrubs (because I love my Mojito one so much), and I got the Grape Soda one, which I haven’t tried out yet, but I’m really excited to.
And then there’s the Thirsty palette. This eyeshadow palette screams summer to me. I haven’t worn much make-up lately because of the hot weather, but I’m really excited about playing around some more with this beautiful palette.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. How gorgeous is this orangy-red lipstick! It’s the perfect summer red in my opinion.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday June 26. It was a very hot day, and I went to my cousin’s graduation party, so I thought this was the perfect outfit; dressy, but still comfortable.

Here’s what I wore Friday June 22. I was a bit chilly that day, but it gave me an opportunity to wear my new chunky Topshop sneakers.
