My Top 5 July Faves ♥

I can't believe we are almost finished with August, where has this month gone really??
This month I have pulled together all of my favourite things from last month, not all are beauty products like last months post - My Top 5 June Faves - some are objects and items of clothing I have absolutely loved using or wearing.
Enjoy reading beauts.


| M.A.C Retro Matte Lipstick in "All Fired Up" - £15.50 - LINK |

While I was in Nottingham last month, I thought I would treat myself to a new M.A.C lippy, not that I have enough. Then again a girl can never have to many.
I have wanted a red lipstick for a while now from the M.A.C range and I saw a girl who was working on the counter wearing this shade and I loved it and had to have it.
It's from the retro matte collection, I find the matte shades last a lot longer than the creamier ones.
It does looks quite red in the photo however it's more of a raspberry red with a hint of pink in it.
This has been my favorite shade this month and I have been rocking it with my everyday look most days when I'm feeling daring.
Now A/W is looming, I can feel it, I know I will get a lot of use from this shade.


| H&M Floral Playsuit - £12.99 - LINK |

This playsuit, I know I'm not going to get an awful lot of wear from this anytime soon but as soon as I saw it on the H&M website I had to buy it.
They were sold out in all sizes apart from 8's so that was the size I purchased, although I'd say I'm more of a 10, so I'd go down a size in this.
I love the tie neck detail and the back is beaut.
I love the flower print too, it's so versatile, you could wear it during the day with some flats or add some wedges or heels for the night time.
I have seen this playsuit in store too recently if you can't buy it online, it's currently sold out online at the minute.


| My Pandora Bracelet - Pandora - LINK |

You will have seen if you have me on Instagram that I treated myself to a Pandora bracelet in duty free on the way to Paris in May.
I also celebrated my 27th birthday last month too and I gained 4 new charms from family, my husband and my best friend.
My dad bought me the daisy charm, my granddad bought me the camera charm, my best friend Rachel bought me the butterfly charm and my husband treated me to the dancing couple charm.
I'm a little late jumping on the Pandora bandwagon but I couldn't imagine not having one now, especially since most of the charms have been picked my family and friends and they all have some sentimental meaning. 
I have already been eyeing up the new pet collection which I will be adding due to my crazy cat obsession.


| Vidal Sassoon Permanent Hair Colour - Medium Intense Red - £7.99 - Link |

I honestly can't rave about this hair dye enough, it is my absolute fave at the minute.
Because I am a red head, when I do dye my hair my roots do go lighter than the rest of my hair so I was intrigued to try this.
You basically colour your roots first with the brush provided and then leave it for a while before adding serum to the rest of the dye and applying it to the rest of your hair - which was a hell of a lot easier than most boxed dyes.
The serum makes it so much easier to blend all the colour into your hair and get an even application.
My hair finally went the red shade I was trying to achieve so I'd give this a go if you want to go red and you haven't had a lot of luck.
I've already purchased another two boxes for my hair this month.
I'm still deciding if I'm going to review this dye - let me know if you'd love a more in depth review on this.


| My Ted Baker Coral Leather Shopper - £104.00 - LINK |

This was another birthday present from the husband, I didn't originally plan on picking a bag for my birthday but I happened to go into Ted Baker while they had a sale on and I fell in love with this coral shopper,
The price was originally £149.99 but I got it in the sale for £104.00.
I don't normally spend more than £30 on a bag but I felt this was a necessity.
I adore Ted Baker and it is so beautifully made - I'm sure this will last me many years.
The rose gold Ted Baker detail is my favourite and I love how simple and sophisticated this bag is.

Those are my July Faves.
