I can’t believe that summer is already half way through! This has been the first month in about a year where I’ve been able to actually spend money, only because my wedding abroad finally happened and there is no need to be frugal! To celebrate, I went out and purchased a few items that I ended up falling in love with and I’m excited to share my favorites with you!
Here are my 5 July favorites.
My new Star by Julien Mcdonald bag. It’s got a detachable cross body strap for those times when I’ve got too much on my hands. The main thing for me was to find a bag where I can easily store my A4 papers, folders and my work laptop without having to shove it all in. This bag fits everything in perfectly, however, it’s a bit on the heavy side. I bought this at Debenhams but I’m sure you can score a great deal online!
Rose Pandora Bow Ring. My sister-in-law purchased this ring for my birthday and I absolutely love it. Even though it took me about 2 weeks to finally get the right size, I am very happy. These rings are very popular so they sell out of stores very quickly, and the best place to get it would definitely be online.
Gucci II perfume. This is one of my all time favorite perfumes which I discovered back in 2010 and have been cherishing my 2 bottles ever since. I just ran out of my last bit a few months ago and have been trying to find this everywhere. From what I’ve read online, it seemed that the perfume was discontinued. However, I was very surprised when I found it at Larnaca Airport’s Duty Free – on sale! This is such a lovely scent and my husband knows it as “Reunion Perfume” because I would save it for special occasions and wear it on our dates or whenever we would see each other at airports. Since it holds such a big place in his heart, I knew that it was worth repurchasing.
Perfume opens up with top notes of mandarin, bitter orange and black currant. I also get a hint of rose. The middle notes are violet and blackberry. The notes are very faint and complimentary, never overpowering. Finishing off the bouquet with jasmine, heliotrope, cedar wood, and musk. It’s a lovely perfume for day or nightwear!
Tea Tree Oil Facewash from Superdrug. This was an impulse buy from Superdrug because it was on sale but I’m very happy about it and absolutely love it. Tea tree is one of its main ingredients and I love the way it gives me a wake up call in the morning when I wash my face. It’s also not drying as you would expect a product with tea tree oil to be, and for under 3 pounds it’s definitely a worthy purchase.
Fit Bit Flex. I have a confession – I am addicted to this thing. Fitbit owns me completely. I find myself constantly checking my steps and competing with my coworkers. It’s honestly such an amazing motivator and it’s definitely one of my favorite items I own! I have also been toying with the idea of getting an upgrade – Fitbit Charge HR, but after giving it some thought, I’ve decided to stick with the flex, mostly because I can change out my bands. Also, I’ve found some cute bracelets that could be used with Fitbit flex on Etsy.
