Monthly Lifestyle Favourites: July!

It's that time again, where I pull together a selection of the lifestyle picks that I have been enjoying throughout the month and pop them into a chatty favourites post. Here is July's helping:

Green People Day Solution Cream SPF15
When I attended the #SLBloggerBash back at the beginning of the year I received a sample size of a Green People Fruit Scrub in my goody bag and since then I've really wanted to try more products from the organic, all natural, skincare brand. Kindly, they got in touch and offered to send me a sample of a product of my choice to introduce myself a little more to the brand and I opted for their Day Solution Cream SPF15. Moisturisers are my downfall because I have oily/combination skin which I find a task to control, so I was attracted to all of the super natural, soothing and balancing ingredients of Aloe Vera, Hemp, Jojoba, Green Tea & Chamomile. It is quite a rich formula for my skin type for the mornings, so if I am wearing make up then I have to make sure I am all primed, but I think it is awesome for no make up days as it has that SPF protection and leaves a beautiful plumpness to the skin.  

Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil
Oh boy, oh boy. This little bottle has been on my skincare wishlist for months, and I'm not quite sure what I would now do without it. Since first application, I've been hooked. If you don't know the hype around this little bottle, it is a Rosehip Facial Oil made from rosehip seeds, gently extracted from the plant to retain all of natural properties and produce pure concentrated fruit oil. Amazing stuff. Full of vitamin A and antioxidants, it offers the properties to condition and treat the skin with regular use. I have minor scarring around my jaw line, as well as slight redness, and this product works beautifully to sooth and plump! I haven't been using it long enough to notice the long term benefits with regards to scarring, but it is such a luxurious product to apply night after night - in fact, this is now the only product in my evening routine. IT'S THAT GOOD.

Origins GinZing Mascara
This sample size Ginzing mascara was given to me as an added extra from the purchase of my Origins Night-A-Mins (which got a landed in last months favourites!) and I've been super impressed with it. I haven't actually tried any makeup from Origins before now, and mascaras can be so hit and miss (I've still been loyal to the Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara) but this tubes is fab at lengthening and lifting, without being super heavy or thick. Being the GinZing range, I find it really awakens my eyes and leaves my lashes looking natural, but noticeable. 

Five Elephant Tote Bag
Over the summer months I have given up carrying around a structured bag and opted for the lighter option of a canvas tote. I picked this one up from Berlin coffee shop Five Elephant and it is by far my favourite of the many I have scattered around my house. A girl strolled into the coffee shop carrying one, but none were out on display, so I shyly asked were I could purchase one from and it turns out they were being hand printed just down the road, and I've been toting it around ever since. I love that it reminds me of Berlin every time I pick it up, and it is unique to me and my travels. You can read all about Five Elephant in my Berlin Travel Guide Part 2!

Vans Old Skool
I owe this purchase of the Vans Old Skool to Adam, I saw these on his feet and decided I myself needed a pair. My black converse cease to fit any longer and after owning a pair of Vans as a teen I thought I would give these a shot, and let me tell you, they are SO comfy. Like, ridiculously comfy. They are super versatile, worn with smart trousers, basic jeans or an a-line skirt (in my imagination, the latter is not my first choice) and I love the play with textures with the suede toe cap. Although Adam also owns a pair, they are not boyish looking on me at all, we just have to make sure we don't wear them on the same day...
Hope you have all had a fabulous July!
