Things I love in July

Each month I have decided to share with you 5 things that I love. From beauty to baby product.

Here are my pick for July:

1) Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne.

I had not intended to buy this, that is why I bought the small bottle, but oh how I love it. I bought it at the airport on our way to Tenerife, I had full intentions of buying the Estée Lauder "Bronze Goddess" after hearing the rave reviews, unfortunately it was not to be as they had sold out, however it did give me the opportunity to discover this little gem. I took my time sniffing the different colognes before settling on my choice. It's fresh, fruity and very summery. It's been my go-to scent this Summer and I will definitely be purchasing again. The bigger bottle this time!

2) Marmalade of London scented candle- Pomegranate & Pear

I love a good scented candle and Marmalade of London do not disappoint. Nathan bought this one for me as a gift not knowing that I'd had my eye on these little beauties for a while. Pear & Pomegranate sounds like an odd mix doesn't it, but it honestly smells incredible. So much so that I don't want to light it in case I waste it! They have a wide selection of scents in various other forms so if you're looking for a good quality home fragrances check them out.

3) Palmers Cocoa Butter-Natural Bronze

I love fake tan. I'll just put that out there. I always feel healthier when I have a nice glow but to be honest, since having Ava I just can't be bothered with the mess. I've tried most brands and I have my favourites but I've never been a great lover of the gradual moisturiser types. However after reading a lot of great reviews and having heard the price tag (£5.35, online in Boots for £2.67 at the moment, just saying), I threw caution to the wind and bought some. It went on like a dream, thick and creamy but it absorbs well. I must admit I wasn't sold on the smell, rather strong and biscuity. But I put up with it to see the end result. I was very impressed. I had a lovely tan and no streaks in sight! Plus the moisturiser left my legs nice and smooth. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

3) Zara Baby

I know, Zara Baby again! I think I should start receiving commission for the amount I blab on about them. Anyway, we've bought Ava something else (well three things actually but these are my favourite). With the ongoing heatwave my poor girl only had 2 pairs of shorts so Nath did his daddy duties and bought her a couple more pairs and a sun hat from the Zara baby sale. These were £6.99 down from £14.99 and far too cute to leave. If you love them too they still have a few more sizes that you can pick up here, but hurry, things are going like hot cakes.

5) Sinful Colors nail polish in Unicorn

Like many other people I've been loving the colour yellow this Summer and I asked Nath for a "pale yellow" nail polish for my birthday. This is what he bought for me. I love the colour, it's exactly what I was thinking, I've never heard of this brand before but Nathan tells me he bought it in Boots for a mere £1.99! It's great quality too, granted you need 2 layers to achieve the colour but it's very chip resistant. A bargain!

So those are my 5 favourites this month, do you have any of these products? What do you think of them?
