Smashing July!

Whoaaah-It was a swifty July for sure! Like the niggling hangover after an epic night,July has left me dazed ( in a good way :D ) .

It’s clearly been a winner of a month for women all over the world! From the William’s sisters taking on the center court with total panache to Theresa May moving to 10Downing Street and the beloved first lady- Michele Obama’s much talked about NCIS cameo and Hillary Clinton’s campaign getting stronger than ever- Women have been taking the world by a storm.   

I had a much thought provoking moment, when I stumbled across Renee Zellweger’s Open Ed on Huffington Post, It’s a good read and a candid discussion on how beauty is perceived.

As for July – you were truly special! With plentiful good times and some brilliant sunshine- you have been a total party!With much excitement we have hand-picked our favorites for the stunner month –July!

From dreamy skirts that’s promised to unleash the Marilyn Monroe in you, to the much anticipated JK Rowling’s latest literary production we have all of it covered in this post!

Every girl needs some fine jewelry and a finer box to hold them ;), This open work wooden box is from the Zara Home Collection.With effortless chic, this beautiful piece is perfect for all the knick-knack’s.

From Rosy Rose Water to Minty Moroccan, Anthro  nails it when it comes to a good scented candle! The Peach & Currant version is claimed to have a 55 hour burn time and the clean burning formula absorbs more fragrance oil that some other brands out there.

Anything Satin catches my eye in a jiffy! Don’t get me wrong, I like ma velvet. But – I love satin, I love the way it drapes around you, accentuating and complementing your figure! So this dreamy satin drape skirt from ASOS was love at first sight! Paired with  nice heels and fine jewelry for the ‘Diva’ look , it seemed like an obvious pick for the Monthly Fav’s.

The shoe renaissance we are seeing off late, has brought back the mules, has elevated ballerina’s to   being ‘Red Carpet’ worthy. The high fashion fall runaways yet again surprised everyone and showcased brocade! The TopShopbrocade heels is in response to the brocade-ssance we are going to see this season! Be it a plain black dress or a blue mom jeans and T, a good pair of brocade shoes can totally amp up your wardrobe!

Coffee pencils for your eyes from Mac! This fine pencil has been a big favorite, I have nothing, but good things to say about the gorgeous product! It effortlessly glides and with bulls- eye precision it’s a good choice for your daily eye liner!

If you are looking for a compact-chic cross body bag, RebeccaMinkoff’sMac Cross body might be your answer! The sleek bag with long leather tassels is both trendy and practical! From bright lemon to muted suede brown’s the MiniMac’s come in a wide range of colours!

For my love of pineapple and for a touch of opulence for the study, this golden candle from H&M seemed like the perfect choice.

We have discovered an epic arm candy from JCrew. There is much charm to this 14 karat gold plated charm bracelets. The dangling glass stone- is etched to give a sapphire stone look and its definitely dainty and classy!

Being the ardent Potter fan I have been, it was an easy decision made (slightly biased one :D  I must admit) to  feature HarryPotter and the Cursed Child  in this month’s Fav’s post. The wizarding world of Hogwarts and the endearing camaraderie of the three musketeers –Harry, Ron and Hermione and the stellar story telling by Jo Rowling, that leaves you at the edge of your seat as you turn page after page ,is without the faintest doubt one of the finest works of literature. The new book however ,has had mixed reviews and has failed to impress many! But for good times sake, the book win’s my vote!

So that’s a  July-wrap! WE would love to hear all about  your top picks this season.

Velvet or Satin  for you?

Have you had the opportunity to tuck into the new Jk Rowling Book? What’s the verdict – is it a thumbs up or a thumbs down?

Until Next time

Take care!
