Hey gals,

So instead of doing a video for last months favourites, i decided to change things up a bit and turn it into a blog post (only) instead. I grabbed around 10 of my favourite items from last month, including things from clothes, to dvds!
Enjoy, and make sure to check out my YouTube channel to watch my previous favourites videos, click here to go and check it out!
Ok so the first thing i've been loving in the month of July is this pair of boyfriend jeans i bought from Cotton On. These jeans would usually just sit there in my cupboard collecting dust because i never really knew how to style them, or if i could really pull off baggy jeans. But throw on a cropped tee, a thick knit or a loose cardi and you're ready to go!

The second thing i've been loving is this pair of white platform sneakers that i also bought from Cotton On (haha that's another thing i've been loving, Cotton On!) As you can probably tell by all the scuff marks and stains on these shoes i have been wearing them to death! I had a similar pair of these in black, but wore them so much i got a hole in the bottom, so this has been my replacement pair, and i'm loving them!

The next thing is patterned socks. I bought the socks pictured above from Factorie, Target and Cotton On, but you can pretty much get these adorable socks from anywhere, and wear them with anything! Pairing types of socks like these with ankle boots and low cut sneakers is the perfect winter combination!

Now, in the last few monthly favourites i've made i always seem to include a shade of lipstick or a brand of lip balm that i'd been wearing a lot, and so to continue with this theme, this month i've been loving a new lipstick that i got from Sephora, in the shade Crush (23). It's my first Sephora lipstick and i love the colour so so much!

Another thing i have been using a lot is this tote bag from Country Road. I go this bag for my birthday back in March, but haven't used it too much up until now. It's the perfect size for everything you need for a day out and the colour palette is beautiful and simple which makes it easy to pair with just about anything!

Ok i think i'm a bit obsessed with candles at the moment. I always have one burning in my bedroom, and whenever you come near my room you can smell the amazing scents of candles like the ones above; Glasshouse Fragrances Esperance mimosa and wild apple, and this gorgeous pomegranate and sage scented candle from an online boutique.

Something a little bit different this time, some dvds that i can't get enough of recently, including Ironman, Ironman 2, Avengers, and Pokemon Indigo League. I mean, who doesn't love some good old Marvel movies and a bit of Pokemon?! 

And finally the last thing i've been loving in the month of July is this book by Patrick Ness, called The Knife Of Never Letting Go. You've probably heard of this book by now, but it was suggested to me by my friend Molly, and once i started reading it, i couldn't put it down! Here's a quick description of the book from Goodreads; 'Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.'
