Today marks the start of July! From July 4th there will be new liberties such as pubs and hairdressers being open in the UK! As July has so much change and excitement to offer I would like to share some of the purchases, including masks, fashion and art, that I have enjoyed recently and (in my opinion) are worth investing in for the coming month! These are my July Must-haves!
- To begin, my first July Must-have is the face covering I have bought from Etsy. After researching online for a cotton face mask I found the delivery times for most masks are delayed. Most of them stating they will be take over 10 days to be delivered. As we all know it is now mandatory to wear a face covering on public transport so I didn’t have long to wait. This option from Aliciasgiftstore on Etsy came through perfectly.
- Next, is a t-shirt generously sent to me by Fezshirts. The soft white tees are comfy and perfect for chilling summer vibes. I like this tee because it also recognises and thanks key workers who can often by overlooked whilst NHS staff see more of the appreciation. Here is a photo of myself in the tee
Moving onto Art, this month I have particularly enjoyed a print I purchased from Drawfor.
Drawfor is a non profit platform which raises money for a selection of causes by producing limited editions of prints that artists have drawn for various causes. I bought this print to support their #ThankyouNHS campaign, where 100% of the profits go to NHS charities together.
Their latest campaign focuses on Equality and has a gorgeous selection of prints where the profits will support Stand up to Racism.
This is one of my favourite prints in support of Stand up to Racism (Artist Marco Oggian) and I think will be my next purchase.
The final item in my July Must-haves is a plant mister. As we get into summer, a mister is a great way to moisten the leaves and the soil of a plant which does not require very frequent watering, such as succulents, cacti, rubber plants etc.
I bought this one from LisaAngel
Importantly, it also works well for a top up, to nourish the leaves between regular watering, for Ivy’s and Cheese plants.
I hope this is a helpful guide for what to buy this July!
