This month I’m happy to have finally gotten around to buying and trying some things I’ve wanted for a while. Therefore, I thought I’d compile them into a neat, little post dedicated to my favourite things from the month of July.
1. Bondi Sands
If you’re a regular fake-tanner and you haven’t tried Bondi Sands yet, you must be living under a rock. Personally, I’ve never been an avid user of instant fake tan but I have used some gradual tanners in the past. I wasn’t very impressed with them as they either had a strange smell or took forever to dry. When I tried Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tan, I fell in love! It smells like cocoa butter and dries fast, meaning you don’t have to wait around semi-naked in the cold until you feel ready to change into your clothes. I recommend applying it after having a shower and exfoliating your body. The best part? It’s never orange and always looks natural! If you live in Australia you can find Bondi Sands at Priceline and selected stockists.

2. #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
I’m half way through #GIRLBOSS and with each new chapter I can’t help but feel empowered. It’s filled with so many inspirational messages and great advice courtesy of Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of online retailer Nasty Gal (featured in my Top 3 online stores). I’m planning on a more elaborate post dedicated to the book once I’ve finished but I’m already confident in recommending it. I found it for $30 from QBD – a bit expensive for a book, I know, but worth it.
I love rings from Pandora, and I am keen to add another to my collection. Up until the 27th of July, if you buy any two Pandora rings you can get a third sterling silver ring for FREE. I was also offered a free Pandora ring holder with this deal, however I’m not sure whether this is available at all stores or just David East Jewellers (customer service in there is amazing and you can get 10% off if you’re a member). I’m not one to part with my money easily BUT upon discovering this deal I’ve decided I deserve to spoil myself.

In conclusion, looking for an easy, D.I.Y tan? Go for Bondi. A new book to read? #GIRLBOSS gets my tick of approval. Love a good deal? Go to your nearest Pandora store and see if they’re running the “three for two” deal.
