Betty Pamper's July Faves

Can it be July already? perhaps its the terrible weather but its hard to believe we are supposedly slap bang in the middle of summer.It feels like its only just started here at BB Towers. Anyhoo here is a little round up of items that have been keeping me out of mischeif this month for your delectation.

Having trouble viewing this embeded clip-view on Youtube

And for those of you who can't view videos or just prefer a good read here are my July faves-the anologue version.

Leopard print rain poncho £5 Asda

is it a rather jaunty leopard print man bag? No its a rain poncho
I'm off on holiday in a matter of weeks and in Florida its the rainy season so when I saw my best mucca Lilli VP wearing a leopard print rain poncho on her holiday pics I knew I had to get my hands on one.

And while I was at Asda I also picked up a few other bits and pieces for my holiday. Gotta love a bit of George!

These rather fine Cath Kidson style flip flops which were £3

A "Snow leopard" print bow headband for £1.50

Some Hello Kitty Plasters, animal print hair clips and a leopard print hairbrush

Wicker handbag Primark £5

The bigger wicker bag
I featured a bigger version of this bag on an outfit post recently and I know a lot of you liked it.

The smaller wicker bag.
I also brought this smaller version at the same time as thought it would be perfect for taking on holiday. Its got room for a purse, phone and lippy-the essentials!Its super cute and reminds me of the little wicker baskets that come with china tea sets in for little girls.

Sleek Papaya Punch matte lipstick £4.99

Coral coloured lips
Ive already featured this lipstick on my blog but I couldn't have a July faves post without including it. I'm just loving Sleeks True Colour lipsticks so much. This coral shade is rarely off my lips.
Papaya Punch I heart you

Barry M Nail paint in Berry Ice Cream 308 £2.99

Berry Ice Cream

This is not just my favourite nail varnish of July I think its my fave of the summer. Its so long lasting (a full five days without a chip) and this lavender colour is just so pretty.

Rimmel lasting finish in Pear Drop 703 £2.99

Another nail varnish that Ive added to my collection this month is this fab turquoise shade by rimmel. My only moan is that it isn't that long lasting which really matters when its such a strong colour but even so I am wearing it quite a lot.

Cat ring-E-bay £4.99

I brought this after seeing it on another blog called A sprinkle of glitter. Its like a cat ear shaped knuckle duster-I feel like a vicious cat assasain. The only problem is its tiny and only fits on my pinky. My mum brought one too as she is cat mad and says hers fits fine so I must have pudgy fingers.

MUA Bronzer £1
The more I use MUA products the more I like them. They are such good quality and pocket money prices. This month Ive brought this bronzer by them in shade 3. Its great for face contouring.

MeMeME Shimmer Stack Gold  £9.98

Staying with all things bronzer Ive also been using this shimmer stack by MeMeMe a lot this month. I'm particularly likingthe palest shade as a highlighter. The other shades are also fab for adding shape and showing off those cheek bones.I can see why this is a best seller.
Loving the shimmer stack

I'm loving the Sookie Stackhouse novels at the moment. I'm a huge fans of all things vampire, werewolf and fairy so have been a fan of the True Blood series for ages but had never dipped into the books. They are absolutely brilliant, so much better than the TV show and I ahve to say in terms of Sookies relationships a lot more satisfying (I'm glad to see Eric the hunky Viking gets a lot more page time) As Ive come to these books so late there are loads of them to read so I'm having a gorgeous Vampfest at the moment. A very happy place to be indeed.
