➳ July Favourites.

Hellooooo everybody!

I am very sorry for the lack of posts in July, I PROMISE that there will be a lot more this Month!

Anyway here are a few things that I have loved throughout the month of July!

Maybelline Dream pure BB Cream
I have been thinking about trying a BB cream for a while now and towards the beginning of the month I decided to pick this one up as it was quite reasonably priced (around $12) and because it is made for people with oily skin (aka me). I have used it every day since and I love it, Its quite sheer but has enough coverage for everyday wear. It feels really light on your skin and blends well. (It does however smell a little weird).

Nutrimetics Defining Eye pencil
I have actually had this product for ages but forgot about it, I originally got it after seeing a YouTube video of someone lining their waterline with white eye-liner to make their eyes look bigger and because I have "almond shaped" eyes I wanted nothing more that to create an illusion of wider eyes (considering people used to weirdly tease me about my "squinty" eyes in primary school). I have recently just started using it again in the inner corner of my eyes to brighten them.

Rubi Nail Enamel
Since I have this colour on my nails right now I thought I would add it to my favourites because I really do love having red nails! There is something so fierce and empowering about red nail polish, I don't really know what it is but I do like it.

Cotton on body Bralettes (again)
This obsession is costing me too much money! But they are so extremely comfortable and cute! Surprisingly I bought these three bralettes full price (say what!), I very rarely buy things that aren't on sale or ridiculously cheap but when I saw these ones I realised I NEEDED a basic black and basic white bralette and then I saw the blue one and fell in love with the colour (I couldn't just walk out without it!). They all cost me $15 each (which isn't too bad to be honest).

Ips Watch from Australian geographic store
(Do not ask me what Ips stands for) Finally something to inject a little colour into my outfits! well as much as I love everything about this watch the fact it has no numbers means it takes me just that little bit longer to actually read the time (hopefully the more I wear it the easier it will get).

Coles Simply Gluten Free Pasta
I am addicted to pasta! and since going vegan I can literally have pasta as much as I want! Recently I have been really enjoying this coles corn pasta from... coles (wow such surprise). The only ingredient in this pasta in cornflour! (kinda tastes like dorito's, but without all the salt).

Mayvers Hulled Tahini
Mayvers nut butters and spreads are my life! When I first went vegan I initially had Tahini as a sort of cheese replacement, so whenever I ate something that would normally have cheese on it I just used Tahini instead. Tahini is great to use instead of a butter or margarine, on pizza, in pasta or anything else really! It can be used for savoury or sweet! (If you like peanut butter, you will probably like Tahini).

Nerada Organic Chai Tea
My new obsession this month has been Chai lattes, however buying them at cafes with soymilk can get a little pricey so I attempted to make my own using these chai tea bags and it worked! Now I can have delicious Chai tea lattes whenever I want.

 Peppermint plant & Pot from Ikea
Since my little basil plant is dying (sad times) I decided to pick up this cute little peppermint plant from Ikea (it was only $2) and a little pot to go with it! (can't remember the price of the pot) Look how cute it is! (Hopefully I can keep it alive!).

Not a lot of favourites for July, but I can already predict more for august so stay tuned! xx

➳ Instagram Diary, July 2015.

Congratulations on making it to the end of another month! (This year seems to be going incredibly quickly!)

So what did July consist of for me?

Endless amount of delicious vegan food (go vegan!, seriously you won't regret it), Meeting some amazing Adelaide vegan girls!, working (getting to dress up every day makes it a little more fun), SOOOOO many pancakes, a trip to the beach, a party or two, a visit to the zoo and a few chai lattes here and there.

It was a good month, fingers crossed they just keep getting better! 

If you don't already (cause you really should) feel free to follow me on Instagram! (I post lots of pics of delicious food) :

➳ Words of wisdom to get you through the week.

Since I spend pretty much half my life on tumblr, I come across many positive and motivational quotes and cute sayings so I thought it would be nice to share a few that I quite like that help me get through my week with the hope that they may help you get through yours too! 

^ I believe in you, and so should you.
^ You sure are!
^ Because just remember, you get back what you give out.
^ Stop focusing and comparing your life to others, focus on creating the life you want to live.
^ Damn Straight!

Have a good week everyone!

➳ The Flinders Street Market.

Hey! I feel like its been ages since I have done a blog post! (and I am very very sorry about that!). Last Saturday me and Callan went along to the Flinders Street Market in the city. Its a cute little market that runs every weekend Saturday and Sunday. Due to the pretty miserable weather it wasn't very busy and there weren't very many stalls but it was still nice! 

Does anyone else find that their mood is easily affected by the weather? When the suns shining and the air is warm I'm always more likely to be in the best mood and when its raining and a bit gloomy it brings me down a little (doing my best to not let the winter get me down though).

This is what the inside of the shed looks like, Its super cute with all the lanterns and bunting and posters on the walls! 

How awesome is that bike!

There were a couple of bric-a-brac type stalls with a lot of second hand/ vintage bits and bobs which we had a look through but nothing really stood out enough for us to purchase anything.

There was also a little clothing boutique stall for Delphic Boutique from which I decided to buy this gorgeous dress, the brand is Purple Ginger and it is designed in Australia. It is a beautiful mustard yellow colour (I honestly love anything yellow or mustard coloured) and the fabric is slightly shiny, the shoulders as well as the panel across the bottom of the dress are a chiffon material with a cute dainty pattern. (I have a feeling this will feature in a potential spring look-book so keep an eye out for that) It only cost me $15 as it was marked down from $40.

The sky looks super grey and gloomy but I look super happy in front of the fountain in Victoria Square! (my face looks hilarious, if you really want you can click the picture to see it bigger)

Of course when visiting the city you must make a trip to Two Bit Villains for some of their delicious fries. We got them to take-away and headed up to Jamaica Blue in the Myer centre to enjoy them with soy hot chocolate and a Chai latte for me. (soy Chai lattes are my current hot drink obsession)

Finally some blue skies appeared.
