Happy Sunday folks! I can't believe it's Sunday already! How are your weekend going so far?
This is going to be my first monthly favorites article on my blog, just because I decided I wanna share with y'all what are my favorites this month. Or I would rather say, these few months, as a result of combining all the favorite things I have been digging in the past months into this month's favorite. I also wanna let you peek into my life a little bit more :) I'm aware that July hasn't come to an end but since I've been trying out so many products I decided to put it into two parts. Part II will be out probably in the beginning of August. Stay tuned! Anyways, I've pulled together a handful of my favorite things and categorized them into below. So enjoy!
Favorite Clothing Articles:
Distressed Denim Shorts from Mango
I can't express in words how much I adore this pair of denim shorts. I've caught myself wearing these almost everyday in this month. If you read my previous articles, you knew I was desperate to find a pair of perfect distressed denim shorts, and this is it guys. This is it!
Floral Necklace from Dressing Paula
This is by far one of the purchases that I've been very proud of, in terms of the price and quality. I constantly receive compliments on this necklace from my friends. And the best thing about it, it's less than 30 bucks.
Jacques du Manoir Swiss Made Watch
I am never a watch person, not because I don't like wearing watch nor I never consider it as fashion piece. But because I'm super picky when it comes to watch. First, I always love a timeless and classic watch. Second, I desire a good quality one. And thirdly, budget-friendly, please! We all know a good watch can be expensive, sometimes overpriced. I used to live in Swiss and I drooled over exquisite and fine watches everytime I passed by the display of watch shops. And every time when I look closely into the prices displayed along with the watches, I am very much taken aback by the 4 to 5 figures. In Swiss Francs. But this swiss made watch is definitely my favorite score from my trip to Switzerland last month because it fulfilled my above three criteria. Until I can afford a better one, this will be on my wrist for quite some time!
Favorite Beauty Products:
Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in 999 Rouge Altesse
I am a huge fan of nail polish in the past months. I have been trying out so many nail colors from different brands and in July, this color top my list and I'm so thrilled it's in my nail polish collection now. I think the red shade is what makes me fall in love so hard, it's so rich and it kind of brings out its strong personality by being so seductive but at the same time saying, 'you don't wanna mess with me!' Ha! Thanks bay! :)
P.S. Nail Polish Twist Pot Instant Removal from Primark
Hands down to this treasure that I have scored in Primark when I was in London! Super convenient. Stick your finger into the pot, twist, take it out, and voila, your nail polish is gone just like that! I am not sure if Malaysia has these, if it does, please let me know. Cause I would love to buy more! But girls, if you're in UK, you should totally buy it from Primark because it cost only 1£!
Trafficked by Sophie Hayes
I actually read this book a while ago but I decided it should appear in my July favorites because this is by far the best book I have ever read. This is based on a real story experienced by the author. And if you haven't read this, get your hands on a copy from your nearest MPH bookstore!
"Relentless, gripping and utterly terrifying, Trafficked is the story of how a British girl was forced into the dark and dangerous world of the sex trade - and how she survived."
I thought it would be fun to feature a favorite app section. My favorite in July has to go to TwoGrand. TwoGrand is like a food journal allowing you to record your daily meals and keep an eye on your eating habit. Most of the time, we tend to 'mindlessly' put junks and snacks into our stomach. Well I'm not gonna lie, whenever I feel bored at home, my body will automatically brings me to the fridge to search for food. Sometimes, without realization, I can empty the whole pack of chips while watching a TV show. It sounds scary but it's true! A couple of months ago, I downloaded this app and decided to try it out. I love it because I get to log what I have eaten and by visualizing my eating habit, it helps me to control my intake. Although sometimes I can still be forgetful, but I tried my best to log every meals I have.
|I log whatever I eat everyday even it's just a small piece of chocolate. I eat a lot but I am trying hard to control myself!|
|In the caption part I usually just write down the name of the meal. I downloaded this app just for myself so I wasn't planning to make it fancy or whatsoever, and I also don't log my progress and exercise that I've done.|
That is it for my July Favorites Part I! Let me know what do you think of this whole monthly favorites idea and what other categories I should feature on my next favorites article. Also, I would love to know what's your favorites by far so put your comment down below and share it with me! :) Thank you for reading, til then! xo
