July Instagram Roundup
What? It’s the last day of July today? I’m going to spare all that ‘the year is flying by’ talk, because I’m sure you all feel the same way, and get on with an sharing a few of my Instagram snaps from this month. It’s been fairly busy, it’s the middle of winter, and basically I can’t wait until September for the first day of Spring. I think that might be one of my favourite times of the year :)

1. My Asos order arrived (haul up soon here) and I’m in love with this jumper | 2. These are usually what my Friday nights look like, laptop, blankey, tv, and tea | 3. He looked to cute to not take a picture, okay? | 4. This book has been on my ‘to read’ list for almost a year, I’m half way through and so far so good | 5. Hot chocolate is one of my favourite things | 6. Red sky in the morning shepherds warning, and it started pouring down

I hope you had a great month! Stay tuned on my Youtube channel for my July Favourites tomorrow.

NYX One Brand Makeup Tutorial
After buying a few more NYX products to get a full collection to do a full face of makeup (excluding under eye concealer), I’ve filmed another One Brand Makeup Tutorial. I did an ELF one a little while ago and you guys really liked it (thank you!), so NYX was next on my list. NYX is one of my favourite brands, super affordable, great products, and cruelty free! Also they make the Butter Glosses, which I may have talked about a few too many times ;)

Violet Box July

Another month, another unboxing.. Well not for awhile. I used to do unboxings monthly until I kind of just got bored of them. I wasn’t using many of the products I was getting yet there was a $30 bill on my credit card each month. Saying all of that, I’m giving them another go. This box turned up on my door step (actually got a card to call and lost my wallet in the process of going to pick it up, but that’s another story) on Saturday and I couldn’t wait to open it! It was so beautifully packaged and I’m pretty pleased with what was inside too. Violet Box is available to both New Zealanders and Australians, and from my first impression of this box I definitely recommend you sign up. As I said before, I am a little sceptical of these but I’m giving them another go. It’s such a great way to try out new products. If you would like to sign up to Violet Box you can here if you are from NZ, or here if you live in Australia :) Watch my unboxing video below and let me know what you think of the box!
