Holiday Essentials || July Favourites




So I recently got back from the beautiful Paphos in Cyprus where I had the most amazing holiday ever! Ah it was so beautiful. But whilst I was away I thought of doing a mix between a sort of 'Holiday Must-Haves' and a July Faves because I haven't posted in SO long!


So these are the products which I have been absolutely loving whilst on holiday/in July! 

First we have the Superdrug Solait Maxi Bronzer in Golden Glow.


It's basically a huge bronzing powder which I use to contour. I was initially drawn to this bronzer as it is matte and has no shimmer which is what I wanted, to get a more natural look. But I love this product because it works well, stays on for a long time, and because it is a Superdrug own brand, it's really cheap! 

Next we have Batiste Dry Shampoo in the scent Tropical.


I've been using Batiste dry shampoo for ages and thought I would try the tropical scent for holiday, and whilst it isn't my favourite smell (it's very coconutty), I'd still highly recommend dry shampoo to anyone as its so easy to use and has such great effects.

Next is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer.
I decided to get this concealer after much hype from the beauty YouTubers and I'm so glad I did! It's so creamy and doesn't crease during the day, and also gives such great coverage and is definitely going to be a must have product from now on.

Then we have the Avon Nailwear Pro+ nail varnish in the shade Coral Reef.


I wore this colour everyday whilst on holiday purely because its such a great, bright, summery colour. Even though it didn't necessarily last for ages, the colour certainly makes up for any negatives. It is just a nearly neon coral which is just perfect for summer!

Next is the Loreal Studio Matt & Messy Salt Spray.


This is such a good pick me up during the day when your hair is looking a bit limp. It says to use it on damp hair but using it on dry hair also gives a nice tousled look.

Lastly isn't a beauty favourite, but an author that I read non-stop by the pool, and that is Dan Brown.


He wrote the book which was turned into the film 'The Davinci Code', and he basically writes sci-fi, mystery, thriller novels. I think the reason that I like these books so much is that something happens on one page, and then there's a twist on the next, and you just can't put them down. They aren't what I'd call a 'light' read, but they are te sort of book that you really get into and start to wonder if it could happen in real life. So yeah loving these books at the moment!

Thank you for reading, even though its been a bit of a mosh mash post between Holiday and July Faves, I promise to start posting more regularly from now on!
