{Lifestyle} Favourite Things – July ’16


I have decided to start a new monthly post topic, my monthly favourite things!
I have seen these posts written by other bloggers and I always thoroughly enjoy reading them, so I thought I would integrate it into my blog too. These posts will feature a number of items that I have been loving over the past month, they might be new purchases, or just items that I am currently obsessed with. Although generally these types of posts feature beauty products and cosmetics I have chosen to write mine on a broader scale and include everything and anything!



This month all of my favourite things actually happened to be new items that I had purchased in July.

Fiddle Leaf Fig | The Greenhouse GatheringI recently purchased this gorgeous double stemmed fiddle leaf fig from The Greenhouse Gathering stall at The Ladybird Popup Market. I am now absolutely obsessed with it and I will endeavor to keep it alive. It is currently still unnamed, so please give me some Disney themed suggestions!

Vanilla Caramel Candle Refill | Shine Bright Candle Co.
I wrote a post a while back about the Iluka Community Indoor Market, this is the candle I purchased there, except I had the owner and creator of Shine Bright Candle Co., Jaye, refill my gorgeous jar with a new scent. I decided to keep the scent similar, and completely winter appropriate and I opted for the Vanilla Caramel. It is seriously divine!

Keyring | Hunter Gatherer Keeper
Again, another recent purchase from The Ladybird Popup Market is this gorgeous key ring from the Hunter Gatherer Keeper stall. As soon as I bought this key ring I swapped out my old ones and placed it on my keys. My old key rings had some bad memories attached, so I am glad that I finally have a new key ring that I can take on adventures and make fond memories with! Don’t laugh at me, my keys have been through the works!

Mask of Magnaminty | Lush
I made a sneaky stop into Lush this month, I picked up a new bath bomb and this mask, after all it was on my Winter Wishlist! I have literally used this mask 4 times already and I love it. It makes my skin feel so soft and it just refreshes me every time I wear it.

Anchor Brooch | Little & Bird
More to come on this item soon but I bought it off Little & Bird as part of a Mystery Package Instagram promotion. So glad I decided to snap it up because this little brooch is so fun and versatile!

Doo-Bai Velourlips Matte Lip CreamΒ  | Australis
I have already expressed my love for this matte lip cream in great detail here, but in case you missed it let me recap, IT’S DA BOMB! This lip cream is my favourite at the moment because it gives me fierce confidence, something I have been needing lately, and it wears so beautifully, without transferring or fading for hours. Definitely glad I purchased it and I am looking forward to getting some more shades from the Velourlips range.

Thunder Shirt | Pet City
Lastly my final chosen item was a Thunder Shirt which I bought for Charlie. I am hoping to write a more detailed review of this product soon, but for now I will say that this was an excellent purchase. Thunder Shirt’s are designed for dogs that suffer from anxiety, Charlie is particularly anxious around the house when he hears any noises, the idea of the shirt is to provide comforting pressure to particular parts of the dogs body with the intent of reducing anxiety, from what I have seen I would definitely say that this product works. Poor Charlie has been so much more relaxed since we have been making him wear this shirt, and I know it is improving his quality of life.
