Looking Back & Looking forward - July/August

How are you all in this horrible sticky warm weather? I'm melting. If it was sunny I wouldn't be complaining, this is just horrible though, its like we need a massive thunderstorm to clear the air, not nice!

This month I've been loving...


This is a very late contender, I only received it one day last week, but I fell in love instantly! I'm sure you've already seen everyone raving about this palette and the hype is right! Its a must have! Review to follow.


I bought this watch from ASOS ages ago with the Groupon that came out, I've just not gotten around to getting the links taken out. I love this watch, it is so pretty and looks quite expensive, despite the fact that it turns my wrist green (!) when its hot it is a fave!


This has to be Spencer's yummy BBQ steak :) He coats it in some sort of olive oil and garlic marinade and then BBQs it to perfection :)


Zoe's consisting posting of amazing eye looks
Katie's amazing DIY wedding invites
Florrie's floral collaboration (including me!)
Rachael-Marie's paint splatter nails

Blog discoveries...

I'm dedicating this section to my friends that have started blogging this month :)

Claire is currently taking part in the 30 day challenge.
Laura has opened up with a cracking post on her DIY ring storage, I do hope that there is more to come!

The products that I've used in full this month...

I haven't used a lot this month, just this little bottle of XEN tan that I received in my GlossyBox. I'm not going to review this as I am a fake tan newbie. It did go patchy and streaky, but that was probably my fault!

Looking forward to...

5.8.11 drinks at my friend's house
A couple of days off work next week
12.8.11 Bristol Blogger meet
19.8.11 A friend's Engagement party
20.8.11 London Blogger meet
25-28.8.11 a trip to Wokingham to visit the future bro-in-law

I'm also trying to fit a meal with the girls in somewhere!

So much to look forward to!! I hope that you all have an amazing month ahead :)
