*July Favourites*

 July Favourites 

Hello! So July has been a great month, I have been busy working (and having a great time) at Springboard, which is a Pre School for children aged 0-5 with Special Needs. I have also been enjoying the fleeting English sun and enjoying the time I have with my boyfriend whilst he visited me in Somerset. In-between this time, I have come up with a few of my July Favourites which I hope you enjoy reading!

Pretty Little Liars
As it is my summer holiday, I have found myself searching for things to do (or watch) to fill my time. Pretty Little Liars (PLL) is a Netflix series following the story of a group of American schoolgirls who are in search for answers behind the mysterious death of their best friend.  It is a drama filled with twists and turns, which have lead me to watching 3 series within one month. There are 6 seasons in total, so maybe by the time my summer holiday finishes I will have finished!

New Lipstick
I have been in search of a new lipstick for summer. Kate Moss for Rimmel London recently released a collection of nudes. I bought no.43 which suits all skin tones according to them. This colour really is gorgeous and one of my new favourite colours to wear. It looks great for casual/natural makeup as its not very bright.

Homemade Milkshakes
My dad bought the NutriBullet the other day. Of course he bought this with the intentions of the family using it to make healthy fruity smoothies. But No… Of course I had to make the unhealthiest drink possible, but it was AMAZING.

            2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream
            1 medium sized glass of semi-skinned milk
            1 Cadbury Flake
            1 Cadbury chocolate freddo
            1 pretty straw for decoration

Yankee Candles
I have wanted a Yankee Candle for so long and was lucky enough to receive one as a present for my birthday. However, I have only just got round to lighting it, and it lived up to my expectation. The smell was so gorgeous that I went and bought another one today. I bought the honey blossom scent this time for the bargain price of £1.50 and also bought a glass candleholder for an extra £1 from the Yankee Candle shop.

What have you enjoyed this July? I'd Love to hear your thoughts?

Duck and Waffle - A must visit!

Last weekend I went to London to visit my boyfriend, we decided on the Monday to visit a restaurant called the 'Duck and Waffle' for some afternoon lunch. 

This was an amazing experience. 

It is located in the centre of London, on the 40th floor of a skyscraper. So you can imagine the magnificent views from this restaurant. 

When we arrived we were asked to step into a glass lift, within 30 seconds we had reached the 40th floor! It was both terrifying and exciting watching the people of London shrink before my eyes (I must admit the way up was a lot nicer than the way down, with a tummy full!). 

We were given a brilliant seat on the window side, from my seat I could see the olympic stadium, and Canary wharf to name a few places, and Ben had views of the famous Gherkin and Tower bridge. We eat for main a crab dish and a charcoal aubergine, and for desert (which is always my favourite) I had a dark chocolate and pistachio macaroon, and Ben had a peanut chocolate brownie. 

If you are looking for a restaurant or place to go just for drinks, I would absolutely recommend the Duck and Waffle. The views were outstanding, and the experience is one I shall keep forever. Although the food and drinks were pretty pricey, it was totally worth it, and I would definitely go again, maybe just for drinks next time.

It's worrying me the more I fall in love with London. Where's that country girl gone?

Until Next time,
