It's been a month of moisturising by the look of it, next month is also going to be similar as well. We've already finished another pot of the Garnier Night Gel and I'm well on my way to finishing another one.
Schwarzkopf Diamond Color Intensive Mask - Recently I haven't been conditioning my hair as I've not been using clear gel shampoo's and I find I don't need it but once a week or so I've been using this mask. I bought it early on in the year when I was in a real phase of using a mask in almost every wash. The smell reminds me of products they use in hair salons which is quite nice to have at home. I've been considering buying the other things in this range but I really want to use up what we have in the bathroom.

I'd planned to do another update of the books I've read this year and there are about 7 books I still need to share with you but my list is at home.
Since I came back from holiday on 30th June I haven't read one book. That's almost a whole month and I hadn't missed reading till this week. I don't know what book I'll read next but I think it's going to be one of the two books pictured.
Marian Keyes - the woman who stole my life
Monica McInerney - Hello from the Galespies.
My mum picked both of these up from the British Heart Foundation charity shop in my local town centre this week.
I can't believe I've gone almost a month without picking up a book.
That will change in August. My aim is to read at least 5 books 6 if I can manage it. I'm going to be plugging the kindle when I get home and put it in my work bag so I know I have something to read on the bus to work
North West Blogger Events
Liverpool 12th July 2015
Jenny set us a quiz answering blogging related questions I quite well as I guessed every question and really wasn't confident. I got 5/10. But 4 other people also got 5 and I lost out on the tie breaker!
We then had time to have a chat with the brands and other bloggers, we also got to try some popcorn which had been supplied by Thomas Tuckers they'd brought two flavours Caramel Summer Fruits which was nice but i'm not sure I could eat a lot of in one sitting and I love me some popcorn. There was also coconut toffee which if i'm honest I didn't get a lot of coconut flavour from but I had a bag in my goodie bag and that had a lot more coconut flavour.
The atmosphere was fantastic a lot of selfies were taken (but not by me - I'm so self concious taking them) and I had one with Laura before the food was brought out . The food was a buffet of all different things from the whetherspoons menu in a buffet style. Which I think worked really well.
Crispy fried mini ravioli stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta & parmesan, served with Sicilian tomato sauce
Wow these were crunchy with a soft centre and I could have happily eaten another portion of them.
With garlicky lemon mayo, chilli, parsley & fried garlic
With rosemary & Parmesan
The Handmade Burger Co
The Old CrownDebz had booked a table for Sunday lunch after Style XL and nine of us headed to The Old Crown which had a sign outside saying it was the oldest inn, in Birmingham. Debz had found it via a random google search and it was a great little pub. Actually it wasn't that little. It was a rabbit warren of rooms and looked like it had a decent beer garden.
As well as Debz and myself there was also Sharon, Jerry, Kate, April, Amber, Tammy & Bianca (Sorry I don't have links to the others blogs but if you send me a message I will add them in).
I had two courses but I really did only need the main meal, but it was delicious and so nicely presented.
Bruscetta which was a huge portion and really tasty. The salad was really fresh and I really liked the dressing on the side salad.
For the main course I went for Turkey and Beef roast dinner. On the menu you could choose two cooked meats and the choice was ham, turkey and beef. I almost wish I'd just asked for beef as it was really nice but I did enjoy the turkey and stuffing.
I still need to write the posts for the main event but I'm still trying to process all the amazing times I had and I've spent a good couple of hours trying to upload some of the pictures to my facebook page and they are finally up.
What was the fist blog you remember reading? (In the same genre as your own blog)
