:: July Favourites ::

*To my long time readers: instead of just saying the posts I made this month, I'm going to say some of my favourite things this month. Enjoy!*

My favourite posts this month were: 

My beauty favourites are:
1) Sally Hansen complete manicure in shade 400, get juiced. Hopefully I will have a full review on this soon!
4) Eos lip balm in Lemon drop. I was really excited when my friend gave this to me after her trip to the U.S because you can't get this flavour where we live!
3) Avon naturals body spray in pomegranate mango. It smells really good and is nice and light for summer.

My favourite apps are: 
1) Bloglovin. Its really nice to have it on my iPod, and sometimes I just like looking through the suggestions.
2)TapTapJump. Its really good for when you are bored. The adds are REALLY annoying, though.

I hope you had a great July!

::Ice Cream Cone Card ::

I'm sorry guys, I haven't updated in ages!

I've posted an ice cream cone card before, so this post was mainly to ease my guilty conscience.

If you want the pattern + instructions for this card, let me know! And if you have anything that you would like me to post, please tell me.
Have a wonderful day!


UPDATE: the pattern is here. You can resize it to any size you want, and make the edges of the ice cream nicer too. I did mine freehand.

:: TGIF + Shopping ::

 Hi guys! I stopped by Sears yesterday to pick up an order.

 The shoes are really cute!! I just need to break them in a little.

This is definetly my new favorite sweater. It's so soft and cozy!
On my way to pick up the order I stopped at Cole's and saw this memo pad, and I just had to get it. It will be perfect for my planner!
I also needed a new swimsuit and I love this one from Boathouse. The bow is actually on the back of the bottoms but I just put it like that for the photo.

Happy Friday! I'm tired and I'm looking forward to the weekend.
