It's that time again, today I'm running you through a list of items/products that I have been loving this last month. I have more than usual to share with you this month, so lets crack on!

DKNY Perfume | The Be Delicious perfumes by DKNY were my original favourite fragrances when I was younger! So I was keen to test out their new release: Nectar Love*. Just look how pretty the packaging is! With notes of mandarin, grapefruit, freesia, jasmine and orange flower coupled with the warm seduction of honeycomb, neroli and musks it's a real indulgent, gourmand kind of fragrance. Slightly sweeter than I would usually go for but I have really fallen in love!

Mango Bag | I'd been seeing this bag popping up all over my Instagram feed for a while and although I don't always want to jump on the bandwagon with these things, I kept thinking "you know I really rather love that!" When I went to see if I could buy it though I wasn't expecting it to still be in stock but it was and still is now! I'm guessing because it's been so popular and it's such a bargain at only £28.99. You can get it in this white shade (sold out now) or black. Grab it while stocks last! It's been such a useful little bag over the summer as it literally goes with everything in my wardrobe and fits all my essentials in. I love the ring handle detail too, which is really on trend right now and gives it a designer feel.

Cherry LemonadeYou already know how much I adore my fruity fragrances especially during the summer months and Cherry Lemonade has been absolutely perfect! An old retired favourite of mine than made a return in large jar form as a special appearance this yet. I was so excited I couldn't resist it! Described as "The cool sparkle of luscious cherries and just-squeezed lemons is the ultimate summer refresher."

Ultrasun Face 30 | Ultrasun are my go-to brand when it comes to suncare. I first discovered them via QVC where they spoke in depth about all the qualities. It offers UVA & UVB protection which is really important when it comes to the suns damaging and ageing rays. This is one of the only suncreams that doesn't cause my face to break out - hallelujah! I use the body formulas as well and as it's a once a day application you don't have to worry about reapplying, genuinely, it really will protect you all day without burning. When I use this I find I develop the best most long lasting tan I've ever had! I usually try to avoid tanning my face to much though and wear a hat when I'm sitting out in the sun. 

If you fancy having a look at the best suncreams on the market and finding one to suit you visit Reviews.com for their top choices along with lots of detailed information on what goes into the products, how they work and staying sun safe.

Nails Inc Pink Holographic Polish | I'm obsessed with this stunning new holographic polish that's just been released by Nails Inc! It is part of their new holographic duo* that has just been realised. This one is called Ghetto Galactic, a gorgeous girlie pink shade packed full of mesmerising holographic particles that capture the light, pictures simply cannot do it justice! It paints well and lasts just like all my Nails Inc polishes.

3ina Lipstick | This has been my go-to lipstick* shade of late! It is shade 109 and for me is a perfect pinky nude with a satin finish. I like how it comes in an easy, twist up crayon style packaging as well. The brand is called 3ina, a new discovery for me since they got in contact offering me a few of their products to try. I'm always drawn to nude lipsticks so this was first on my wishlist. I'll give you a full review on all the pieces I got soon but I just had to include this lipstick in my monthly Loves List!

Olympus 45mm LensI've finally got my hands on the 45mm portrait lens for my Olympus Pen and I couldn't be happier! I love my Olympus Pen & the standard zoom lens it came with it however I'd seen Fashion Bloggers getting these incredible shots with he 45mm so it had been on my wishlist for sometime now. I ended up getting it as an early birthday present back in June as they're quite pricey but definitely worth he investment in my opinion. I wanted to start using it on a few shoots that I had planned (like these) which is why I got it early. You do have to stand much further away from your subject than I'm used to but I am head of heels in love with the results I'm getting with it!! Just check out the stunning background blur it creates in these shots compared to my standard pancake zoom lens. I think my photos look that bit more professional with this lens and considering it's myself taking all my blog photos and usually my Mum taking all my outfit shots, trust me neither of us are professionals by any stretch! I would definitely recommend the Olympus Pen if you're a blogger or photographer just starting out and looking for a good, easy point & shoot camera with beautiful results. 

Note: All of these images were taken with my 45mm lens (excluding the shots of the actual lens itself of course!).
