July Instagram Roundup

Somehow, another month has come to an end, and we're officially into August. July was another busy one for me, with some events to go to, and me leaving my job for my new journey into teaching. I really enjoy these look-backs into my life, and hope you do too.




My first blog post of the month was another Sephora haul. When Ash mentioned an online order when I got back from Florida, I was all over it, and picked up some goodies from Anastasia Beverly Hills, Drunk Elephant and Tarte Cosmetics - you can read the post here.

It wouldn't be my Instagram feed without a food picture now would it. This pudding heaven was from Pizza Hut.

Typical bath time post from me, using Mandara Spa Amber Heaven Bath Essence and Lush Cosmetics Mask of Magnaminty.


More food! I finally shared my Walt Disney World Dining Plan post on my blog, and dreamt of all that tasty holiday food. You can read the post here.

If you follow me on social media, you might know that I am going back to university in September to pursue a career in teaching. I finally hit the university bookshop and bought the reading list - this is my light reading for August.

I did it! I got my hands on a Kylie Lip Kit!!! Koko K is finally mine, and I am in love! You can read my post about it here.


Obviously, once Koko K was mine, I had to wear it and take a selfie, right?

A Costa date with my sister. Libby and I don't get to do this a lot, so it was really nice.

Welcoming Anna home from her trip around America. She'd been gone too long, and it was a lovely chance to catch up with the girlies.


Sometimes the stresses of life get a little heavy, but this helped me remember that I'll always be fine in the end.

A good old book haul, something the English graduate in me loves. You can find the post here.

Happy 19th Birthday to my not so little sister Libby.


When you're going out for a birthday dinner, it's rude not to take a selfie right? Sporting Koko K and blonder locks.

I fell in love with the Fat Mascara podcast this month. I had 20 episodes to catch up on - safe to say they're finished haha! I wrote a whole post of the podcast, find it here.

Finally, I'm back into reading! About time too! I reignited my love of reading with Giovanna Fletcher's Always with Love.


Sometimes, time with your best friend is all you need, and this quote really summed up how I felt after some quality time with Ash.

A Boots haul, a classic blog post. You can read about my purchases here.

One of my favourite YouTuber's Dani Mansutti was running some incredible giveaways in July. Unfortunately I didn't win - but how amazing were those prizes?


I also picked up some of Kylie Jenner's nail polish collaboration with Sinful Colors. They're some stunning polishes - find out which ones I picked up here.

The last Ash and Lex Costa coffee date at the General Hospital - I'm really going to miss them.

Another competition, this time to win the new Slimlights from Becca Cosmetics. I love my Champagne Pop, and these new offerings from Becca look amazing!


A bath time picture, featuring my current read, bubble bath and mask of choice. The Body Shop Honeymania will forever be some of my favourite bubble bath.

I spotted the Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag over on Charlotte's blog, and decided to give it a go. It was quite embarrassing sharing some of my bad beauty habits.

Finally settled down to do a bit of uni reading. This book's a big'un, it's going to take me a while to get through.


Another book and bath photo combo. I'm loving being back into reading, and flew through Always With Love - I'm sad it's finished.

I think I need to save this quote and get it printed off on a canvas. I am quite harsh on myself, so I should be a bit gentler.

The Mix and Mask box collaboration between British Beauty Blogger and Origins was released this month and I couldn't wait to pick one up and unbox it all for you - read it here.


I've fallen in love with this song this month. I love this version, and Hobbie Stuart's cover. Summer tune!

Another giveaway entry, this time for a giveaway held by Em over at mypaleskin. I love her YouTube channel, and this is another incredible prize.

This has to be one of my favourite blog posts I've done - My Week in Lipsticks. I liked trying to wear different lip options throughout the week and sharing my choices with you. Let me know if you'd like to see more posts like these.


The last Friday of the month was my last day at work. I was utterly spoiled by my workmates, with so many goodies. They know me well, with a Lush Goody Box and a Boots card amongst my gifts.

I celebrated Alice's engagement this month, and again, this counts as the perfect excuse for a selfie. I love this lipstick - Kelly Yum Yum from Mac could be a new favourite!

A little thought for the week ahead to keep in mind. It might feel like you're being pulled backwards, but it's only to fly forwards later.

So that's another month wrapped up. What have you been up to? What are you looking forward to in August?

Love Lexie
