How is it July 27th already? Where did the month go? Before I know it, it'll be my birthday which marks two months until the wedding - and then soon enough the big day will be here too! Eek!
I wanted to share some of my favourite things from this month with you - and Jesse's favourites too. I'd love you to join in and share what you're loving as well - so make sure you leave a comment!
- Food Favourites -
This smoothie was seriously the best thing I made all month. To say I'm addicted is an understatement - I've been having one as a snack every single day.
One day I was out all day and didn't get to make one - so I had one for dessert as I missed it so much. You seriously need to try it for yourself!
- Best Food Finds -
I'm one of those weirdos who gets super excited over new food finds at the supermarket so of course I have to share them with you!
This week I randomly found PB Crave's Cookie Nookie Peanut Butter at ALDI. Being the peanut butter addict I am, of course I had to grab it. I've yet to try it - but I'll let you know how it is when I do!
Definitely not the healthiest peanut butter, but hey! We all need a treat! ;)
Bulk packs of Unsweetened Almond Breeze at Costco.
Can you say heaven? You have to know these went straight into our cart. I can't remember how much they were, but they worked out to be much cheaper than the per-carton price at Coles or Woolworths (even when on sale). Definitely worth picking up if you're a Costco member in Australia!
Now if only we could get some of the other healthy food finds at our Costco stores!
- Beauty Faves -
I have frizzy, crazy hair that's often flat on the day after washing it - so naturally I fell in love with Toni & Guy's Dry Shampoo when I found it also works as a volumising spray. I even through out my old volumising powder because this one smells so good and works so much better. It also allows me to get light waves by twisting my hair after spraying a small amount on the length of my hair.
The glamour serum is also great for smoothing out frizz and making your hair look shiny and healthy.
I'd would definitely say the Dry Shampoo is a must buy - not just for lazy days when you don't feel like washing your hair ;)
Favourite Beauty Product: BRAUER's Paw Paw Lip Shimmers
This is a product I actually only get yesterday at the Blogger's Brunch - but I'm already in love. So far, the Pink Diamond Lip Shimmer is my favourite for a natural glossy lip - but I'm also loving the Blush.
I love that the Lip Shimmers are all natural, made with only Paw Paw, Shea Butter and Honey and without any nasty Petrochemicals. Best of all? They're not sticky whatsoever, so you'll have kissable lips that your man won't complain about.
I have a huge lip gloss collection as I'm kind of obsessed - but there's some I'm not allowed to wear if I want to kiss Jesse because he hates them - luckily these aren't one of them!
In winter my skin tends to be my worst enemy. It's dry, prone to breakouts and what was working in summer no longer works.
Recently I've been using KOSMEA's Rose Hip Oil products and they seem to be working - as long with my secret weapon: an all-natural toner which I'll be sharing the recipe for very soon!
Rose Hip Oil is great for scars, moisturising the skin and fighting the signs of ageing - but it's also great for breakouts/acne. I put the rose hip oil on at night time to both nourish my skin and help to reduce breakouts and it seems to be working really well in addition to the purifying cream cleanser.
- Fitness Faves -
The weather is getting warmer and I am once again enjoying my morning walks rather than loving but freezing-my-butt off. The mornings are still chilly - but I'm starting to lose layers and usually return home super hot and wanting to cool down, whereas before I was happy to return to a warm house.
I still cannot wait to get out of thick layers and back into more comfortable workout clothes - but it won't be long!
Super cute (and CHEAP!) buy:
I love this top from Cotton On Body and it was just $15!
It's soft, comfortable, cute and pink - so what's not to love! Oh and of course, it's functional too!
I'm thinking I need to pick up another one as it would be a perfect top for our Bali honeymoon - cute, comfy, cool and great for the different hikes and activities we plan on doing!
- Shopping Faves -
This super cute large jar from Kmart - perfect for candy buffets or a display jar in your home - and only $5!
When I bought mine there was only one, but now I know they're selling more, I'm definitely keeping an eye out for a couple more!
Funny story: I picked up this jar in store, headed over to the self-scanner to check the price and when it popped up on screen I said to my sister "Oh yeah, 5 bucks" only to get the weirdest look from the guy next to you. Sorry man, I love a good bargain! Kmart have so much good stuff hitting stores next month so keep your eyes peeled - cheap, cute and great quality!
So tell me, what have you been loving this past month?
What's your favourite food of the moment? Fitness fave? The best shopping buy? A must recommend beauty product? Go go go!
