July 2015 Favourites

jury-favouritesHow is it even possible that today is the last day in July? When did that happen? How can I slow the time down and get some of it back?

I honestly feel as if this year is literally flying past and before we know it 2016 will be upon us. Anywhoo you know what time it is – favourties time and these are things that I have been favouriting in July.


I’ve not really been that adventurous this month on the beauty front and actually haven’t really been wearing much make-up at all (I know boo hiss right?). There has been a lot going on in the Page household and I’ve been feeling pretty down and lethargic, so beauty has pretty much fallen by the wayside and anything I have been using, I’ve included plenty of times before. So I feel we should move swiftly onwards.


Dream a little dream // This month I decided to give Giovanna Fletcher’s latest book a chance, I wasn’t impressed by the first one I read because I felt the story was lacking. That said however I did highly rate her writing style and this one seemed to have more potential. I really enjoyed it and you can see my full review on goodreads. However I’m still convinced by the Chick Lit arena and feel that it is a little bit dated and while I really enjoyed this book, it’s easily forgettable and I think Fletcher gets lost amongst the other similar writers.

I followed the rules // If you’re looking for a quick, easy, laugh a minute summer read then this is the book for you. It sits in no-mans-land between comedy, chicklit and satire but it’s one of the funniest, sweetest and unpredictably predictable books that I have ever read. The lead character is incredibly relatable and the entire book is engaging and addictive! It’s one of my favourite books so far in my 50 book challenge!

TV Shows

Pretty Little Liars // I started watching this cult TV show a few weeks ago and I was gripped throughout the first three series but by the end of series three I was lost. It’s one of those shows that is extremely far-fetched and at times unbelievable and yet you just can’t help but watch it! As unbelievable as it is, it is extremely well written and I blooming love it.

Under the Dome // This is pretty much the same as PLL actually because it’s also far-fetched and unrealistic. The first two episodes of series 3 were a tad “out there” for my liking and I started to lose interest in the programme but it got better and I am gripped once again!


Local History // I’ve recently become really interested in the Miner’s Strike and particularly the impact that it has had on my local community and the surrounding area. It’s an important part of British history and it’s effects on the trade union movement are still being felt today. I’m currently trying to learn as much as I can about the subject.
