July Favourites

This post has to be the most favourite one I write all month. It’s a great opportunity to go through the last 30-ish days and do a little bit of inventory of things that I have tried out, loved and not loved as much as I thought (those ones I will keep to myself).

So….as always this month has been a little bit of a mixed bag of randomness. Mainly it has been a month of trying to get back on track after a few months of loosing my way with most things. This is what happens when you try to do too many things at once!!

As I mentioned in my post a few weeks ago, I could not have gotten back into the swing of things without my little support network. A very special massive Thank You to the wonderful Miss Flavia (the amazing mind and spirit behind Happydemic) for kicking my butt in the gym every Monday…she is a saint for listening to me bitch and moan about being unfit and rubbish at everything, but for also kicking my butt as requested. Sweat is just fat crying……and this amazing lady makes my fat cry a lot!

Right……thats the life and mushy stuff done, lets get into the products:

In The Kitchen:

Being back in the swing of things means giving up on all the things that make my body feel awful! To help my back on the path to a balanced body, I have been eating all the yoghurt I can get my hands on…..as well as munching on my favourite salad buddy…Giant Couscous.

It is a great thing to have for lunch or dinner, and is super versatile. Added bonus…it takes the same amount of time and effort to make as regular couscous.

In The Bathroom:

Continuing the theme of this post and getting back on track with everything, I have been trying to pay more attention to my skincare routine. Over my “not on track” moment, I was not looking after my skin and as a result my chin exploded.

After mooching through the internet, I found that this little combination was going to work best for me.

If you are at all nervous of mechanical face brushes, I would 100% recommend the Luna Mini. It is not cheep (this little guy set me back £29 from amazon), but it lasts for up to 100 uses and gives you a good idea of how the product works. Hand on heart, I can say i will be asking for the full size brush for Christmas, and will continue to be use it with this great face wash!

In The Bedroom:

In the UK we had our summer the other week. A few hot days in a row that allowed normal people to pop their sandals on…..on the other hand I have taken a page from my Dad’s book and have been wearing them every day for the last 2-3 weeks. Even in the rain.

With this comes the need for maintaining my recently re-buffed feet….so I have been covering them in this foot balm. I know this is an over share, and a lot of people hate feet…but….if your feet crack in any way this balm will repair the damage within 2 days.

In The Living Room (aka The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat)

As you guys know, I am a stationary junky….anything I can use to make my daily diary and note making that bit more enjoyable, I will go out of my way to get my hands on it.

This past month I have been using my kikki and Hay finds so much, and it makes me super happy!

Come on….how can you be a stationary junky and not love the picture???

In The Portable House of Lotz (aka in My Handbag)

Everyone who knows me personally, knows that my body is odd……I swear that I am the only person who has an allergic reaction to Johnson’s Baby products. Along with this weird thing, in the last few weeks, I have discovered that the skin around my eye has a horrible reaction to micellar water and sun cream. It is awful! my eye goes super dry and super itchy.

After searching through Boots, I discovered that the only thing that will help heal this up is E45. I have been taking it everywhere with me and smothering my eyes with it every second it get (side note, it makes me look like a raccoon). The smell of this stuff reminds me of my Dad…..so smothering it all over my face has not been a bad thing.

So that was the highlights from the last month. I hope you all enjoyed…….

Is there anything you guys think I should be trying next month? Is there anything I have missed off? Let me know xXx

Have a great weekend xXx hugs and love xXx
