July Faves ⭐



Hey Guys!

So I honestly am struggling to understand how we are already in August, Like seriously where is 2018 going and what’s the rush? Anyhow A new month calls for a new faves post and a little catch up on all the things I have been loving in the past couple of weeks. As you may know from my last post I have been gone for a while so it's been quite a bit since I have shared my faves with you therefore I am so excited to actually be writing up about all the things I have been loving lately. I also thought seen as I'm having a bit of a fresh start I would change the formatting of my monthly faves posts. So nothing major but as you will see in this post I will have a few categories and will be sticking to these each month so I have some consistency throughout my blog and my faves posts will hopefully be a it more enjoyable to read and less random. So here we go and I hope you enjoy 
 checking out all things I have been loving in July. 

Fave Mem of The Month

Okay so first up in our new little layout is 'Fave Mem of the Month' This is where I thought it would be hella cute to share my fave memory from the month in this case July. This month was crazy as I had both my boyfriends and one of my best gals birthdays in the same month however this meant we got to do some celebrating. Me, Josh and a bunch of our friends went out for Chinese food and drinks to celebrate his and another of our friends birthdays. We had a really amazing time and it was great seeing everyone. I also met my main girl Marisa on her birthday and we met for lunch and drinks and it was so cute and nice to have a catch up as it had been wayyy too long. Therefore these were my fave things I got up to this past month.

 

Pinnacle Products of The Month

 Next up in the monthly faves is the product section and this could be anything from makeup, to hair to skincare just all the products I have recently been reaching for. 

The first product that has had me shook in July is the Epic Ink Liner from NYX. I am a massive fan of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper and If you have been around for a while you will know this as I have been re-purchasing this product for forever and it is my HOLY GRAIL liner. However I had a bit of a wonder around the NYX store this month and picked this up as I had heard some rumours that this little product was a bit of a dupe for the Kat Von D liner, Did I believe this no of course not but WOW. I tried this and honestly it's insane it is pretty much identical to the Kat Von D liner and its pretty much half the price it is crazy. Trust me if you haven’t already you need to try this product.

The next product I want to chat to you lovelies about is by The Body Shop. We have actually had some sun in the summer in the UK this year which is a pretty rare occurrence and due to this I have been tanning a whole lot and this moisturiser has been a literal god send. This is quite possibly my fave body moisturiser I have ever tried. I think the thing I love the most about the product is that it doesn't sit on the skin and leave you feeling sticky. You apply this and it soaks in, in honestly about 30 seconds it’s amazing especially as that is the main reason I hardly moisturised my skin before this as I’m hella lazy and hated waiting for the product to sink in to the skin. Another massive bonus of this product is my tan always applies flawlessly after using this product.


Music Faves 

This is a new segment to my faves but I am always listening to music so it seemed crazy not to share this as part of these posts. I have been loving a few new things when it comes to music this month. Firstly being that I am OBBSESSED with both Fall Out Boys new album Mania and Panic! At The Disco's new album Pray For The Wicked. I have also been loving Ariana Grande's new music a lot recently. 


Fashion Faves  

This month has been all about playsuits and bright colors for me. It has been crazy warm in July and my absolute go to in the hot weather is a playsuit I have been loving this one from Boohoo in particular. I also have been loving anything with a bit of color this month so these two little crops are perfect examples and the mustard one is from New Look and the red is from Miss Selfridge.

Fave Insta Account of the Month

As I'm sure most people are I am constantly on instagram I love using the app and its one of my fave things to do so that inspired me to feature an account I have been obsessing over each month. This month it has hands down been @wanderersandwarriors. This account belongs too Charlie and Lauren who are just couple goals like the cutest ever and they travel the world together and document their journey through Insta and omg their feed is just the prettiest most interesting thing I have ever seen. Here's a few of their snaps and a link to their account if you want to check them out:


The Random Ones

Now I know I said I wanted to make my faves a little less random however this just wouldn't be me if I cut out the randomness completely so I thought let’s give them their own little section so they don't take over the whole post - Think of it as organised chaos. 

So in my random faves for July the first thing I have been loving is an Xbox game. Which I know is hella random as I have never spoken about anything like this on my blog but I have been finding myself playing on my Xbox a whole lot recently. I love playing games with friends as it can be so much fun and it saves us some dolla as we ain't actually leaving the house and spending like crazy. The game I have been playing with my friends last month is called 'Dead By Daylight' I know sounds a bit morbid right? Well it kind of is, it is a game where you play online with friends or just random people and one of you is a serial killer and the rest are survivors who have to escape without being killed by the killer. This has been the funniest thing playing this with my friends like I’m talking jump scare central which when playing with friends its honestly hilarious. 


Another random fave of mine this month has been the Gym. I know it sounds crazy as I should just always love the gym but it’s been a while since I have actually looked forward to going to the gym but this past month I have just fallen back in love with it and have been loving my workouts and I have the best gym buddies ever which is great of course. 


Finally the last random fave I have had has been Walkers Squares. These are some crisps which I know ain't very healthy BUT these crisps only have 97 cals per bag which makes them super easy to fit in to my calorie intake. They are also delish.



So that's it for my July faves! I’m so happy to be back blogging and hope you enjoyed reading about my fave things this month. 

Thanks for Reading!

Back To Blogging......Life Update 💙

Hey Guys!

I'm back.....AGAIN! I have lost count of the times where I have done these posts after disappearing off the face of the earth as far as blogging is concerned and it’s actually embarrassing and I am so sorry for another unexpected absence. However I am back and will hopefully be sticking around for good this time. 

So what's with the vanishing act? Well life got hella busy, I have been going through some personal stuff and honestly I just completely lost my mojo. I found myself stuck in a bit of a blogging rut and just lost all motivation when it came to posting on my blog. I found that whenever I would draft up a new post I was just so unhappy with the result and blogging ended up becoming such a chore which I hated as blogging has always been something I used as an escape and was super passionate about so this was so frustrating for me. Anyhow, it’s been a hot minute since I have been active on my blog and I have found myself missing blogging so much recently so I feel as it is the perfect time to get back in to the swing of posting on my blog and am even considering giving my blog a little bit of a revamp. As I want to get back in to the swing of things slowly to avoid another blogging catastrophe I will post as much as I can but won't be sticking to a strict schedule, however I am aiming to post at least once per week. 

(I feel like the following gif sums up the level of failure I have been experiencing when blogging)




Anyway I'm back and Lifewithbee is about to get some fresh new content and a possible makeover but as I have been gone for quite a while I thought the best way to come back is with a little life update. Now there have been a few little changes in my life the main one being that I have finally started my driving lessons. I was soooo nervous to do this and it was something I honestly never thought I would do however I am about 10 lessons in and I love it now and am way too excited to get a car and be able to drive myself around. The next thing is that I’m still in the same job as I made the decision that it just wasn’t the best time for me to make a career decision. This was for a few reasons but mainly because I am able to manage my finances as I have the stability of a consistent monthly wage which is currently funding my driving lessons. I do however still hope to pursue a career in digital marketing in the future but I just am prioritising getting my driving license for now as this will open so many more doors when it comes to advancing in my career and looking for new opportunities. 


I have also been back on the fitness bandwagon and am watching what I eat and hitting the gym again in the hope that I can be in reasonable shape for my 21st birthday in November. I have so many exciting things coming up such as I have a festival at the end of the moths which I will deffo be posting about, My friends 21st is also coming up as well as my own and of course we have Autumn and as you may know that is my fave time of year and I love posting as I always find the Autumn / Winter to be when I am most inspired to post on my blog. 

I feel like now you guys are all caught up with what’s been happening with me now I'll share some snaps of what I have been up to in the Summer so far seen as I haven't been posting.

Makeup / Beauty Haul May 2018 ⭐



Hey Guys!

Again It has been way too long since I last posted but I have been super busy with work and looking in to what I want to do for my next step regarding my career as well as prepping as much content as I can for you guys here on my blog. I am feeling way more positive and I am so ready to get back in to the swing of things. Starting with today’s post which is a beauty haul. I have picked up a few items from a few different places including Beauty Bay, NYX and Superdrug.





The first place I ventured in my search for new beauty goodies was Superdrug. I picked up the three gems shown in the photos above from here. The first item being this pressed setting powder from MUA, I love MUA products as they are crazy affordable yet of an amazing quality. The products from MUA are also cruelty free which is great. The powder was £1 (Crazy I know).  The next thing I picked up was one of the liquid highlighters from Revolution. Again this brand is cruelty free and I love their products so much. I am so excited to try this liquid highlight as I have only ever used powder highlights and am really interested to see how I could work with this product. It was £6 and I got the shade Starlight. Finally the last thing I picked up in Superdrug was a blending sponge by ‘B’ which is Superdrug’s own brand and it also cruelty free as well. This blending sponge is actually a hard blending sponge so I’m not sure how easy this will be to use I didn’t realize this in store but I will give it a go and see what I think and the price was super reasonable as I believe it was on offer for around £3. 





Next up I placed a little order on Beauty Bay and picked up a few products. The first thing I ordered from here was the full coverage foundation from The Ordinary. I have heard endless amazing things about this foundation and I just had to pick one up to try it out for myself. It cost me £5.90 and I got the shade 1.1N. Whilst looking for this foundation I also saw that The Ordinary also did a Primer so I thought I would pick this up also to see how it worked with the foundation. The Primer is the High-Adherence Silicone Primer and it cost £4. I have actually tried both the foundation and primer together and they are both amazing. The last thing I picked up from Beauty Bay was the Mario Badescu facial spray with herbs and rose water and this again I have heard great things about so wanted to try it myself it cost £7. 





Finally I called in to the NYX Store and picked up this stunning glitter in the shade Beauty Beam. This is a stunning muli-chrome pinky mauve colour and I love it. I also picked up the glitter glue whilst in store to go with this. The glitter was £6 and the glitter glue was £8.

So that's everything I picked up for this beauty haul and I cant wait to try all the different products I got.
