July was not an easy month for me by any stretch of the imagination. I spent a lot of time alone, reflecting and planning my next moves. I invested a lot of time and energy into self care this past July and it was well worth it. Don't listen to people when they say self care is selfish; how do you expect to give it all you've got when you're not prepared? Take some time to unwind and get back to you. I promise that it will be worth it.
Self care can mean a lot of different things. For me it is making sure my nails are freshly manicured, following a skincare routine, taking time to wear makeup and a dash of aromatherapy. If I have extra time I like to sneak in a hot bath and if I have money burning a hole in my pocket, I head to the mall and take my frustrations out on my wallet.
Pictured below are some of my beauty/make up favourites from this past month. I snuck in a few extra "random favourites" as well just for good measure. They aren't listed in any sort of specific order and this post is not sponsored. If you have any questions about any of the products, let me know in the comments and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
