July favourites & a wee announcement!

How quickly did July fly by?!  As I mentioned before, I don't like July and so I made sure I did lots and kept myself busy.  Thanks to everyone who leaves lovely comments on the blog, each one really does make my day :)

So my favourites for the month eh?

Holidays - I started off the month having a girlie holiday in Spain with 2 of my best mates and we had a lovely time altogether.  Feels like it was ages ago!

Harry Potter and Bridesmaids - I loved them both so much and went to see each one twice in two weeks and you know what?  I'd go see them again.  I can't wait for the DVD for Bridesmaids to come out and I will totes be buying the Harry Potter boxset whenever it's released.

Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in Calypso Blue - This has been my absolute favourite nail polish of the summer and I will have another post on it and another Sally Hansen product later in the week.

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Gel For Face - Love this stuff, check out my full review here.

Avon Supershock and The Body Shop Big and Curvy waterproof mascaras - These mascaras came to Spain with me and were part of my highly scientific experiment.

Mac's Golden Gaze - Absolutely gorgeous eye shadow.  This shadow is sold out at the moment and I can see why, I've a full post on it here.

Adidas body spray in Happy Game - I don't really get the name but this is my go to spritz and keep it in my handbag at all times. (This is my second bottle of it, 'twas only €5.99 in Spain and I've found out you can't get them here which sucks but which also means I'll be stocking up when I head back to Spain next month)!

The Body Shop's Coconut Lip Butter - This has come everywhere with me since I got it and my full review is here.

Now, on to a wee announcement.  Lovelygirliebits.com is going to be expanding a bit.  I have finally bullied my sister Joanne into joining me here!!  She hasn't a clue about make up and is much more into fashion than I am, so she'll be posting about that and about any sales/bargains that are out there. We have a few ideas in the works for joint posts so we'll see how that works out and if we manage to work together without killing each other!


  1. I completely loved bridesmaids too - definately going to be buying it :)
    & I keep on meaning to try the bodyshop bronzing gel but haven't got round to it yet!! x

  2. Oh yay about your sister, the one with the lovely hair!!! Congrats girls, must be lovely to be able to do stuff like this together, I really miss my sister since I moved away! Totally agree re Bridesmaids, absolutely hilarious and will be buying the DVD :)

  3. That's great news about your sis. Can't wait to see how the merger goes. Everyone loves a bargain. :-) So glad I got my hands on Golden Gaze. It's super pretty.
