The abundance of products in the beauty and fashion market is incredible. It is often hard to keep up with all the new trends, sales, promotions and innovations. Therefore, I decided to share my monthly favourites with you. Let's start with makeup products!

1. Get That Summer Glow!

I have been hunting for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit for quite a few weeks now. Sephora was either out of stock or did not have the palette I wanted (I was waiting for the "Sun Dipped" colours). I have just started using it, and I LOVE all 4 colours in the kit. Highlighting has never been more pleasant and easy!

Alternatively, I have Becca shimmer in the Golden Bronze Pearl colour that I like using when I am more tan. I apply all of these highlighters with my new brush that apparently came out only recently - Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #23.

2. Perfect Skin

I try not to use a lot of makeup in the summer, however I want my skin to look perfect when my husband and I go out for a dinner or an event.

First of all, I apply my secret beauty weapon - Pores No More primer by Dr.Brandt that lasts forever (I have been using my 1 oz one pretty generously for almost a year already!). It does mattify my skin and makes pores invisible. But what makes a great difference is a well matched foundation. I have found my new favourite just last week: Estēe Lauder Double Wear Makeup in Shell Beige. Bare in mind that it is a bit heavy, but girls with oily or combination skin will never want to use anything else! So far I am extremely pleased with it.

I am also very fond of Belif gel-cream that I prefer to apply in the evenings.

3. Steve Madden Heels

I love shopping at Steve Madden because their shoes are so gorgeous AND super affordable. I have included it in my July favourites as they are currently running amazing sales and I had to share this information with you. I am actually about to buy a pair of these turquoise heels myself :) 

4. Off-the-Shoulder Swimsuits

It is, hands down, the hottest swimwear trend of this summer! I cannot wait to get one of these for our beach vacation :)


Do I have to even explain? The Nordstrom July Sale is one of the most anticipated events in every shopaholic's calendar. Grab a designer bag or a beautiful dress at greatly discounted prices.
