August Favourites 2017

The end of summer is looming and of course, we have to end a cracking August with a favourites blog post! So here is a selection of things I've been loving this month!

My first favourite is the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in Flirtation. Having a lippy in my favourites seems to be a running theme; I wear lipsticks most days. I love the colour of this, it's so delicate for the summer. I wore this to the wedding I went to recently as well, and a couple of people even commented on my makeup so that's always a plus. I found this to be super long lasting too, it didn't wear off for the whole duration of the wedding, including eating meals and a lot of drink. There wasn't even a single smudge!


My second favourite is the Soap & Glory Peach Party Blush. This is a stunning blush for summer. It's shimmery and has some bronze tones, to give a perfect sun-kissed effect without having to use a bronzer. This meant it was brilliant for those days where I didn't want to wear too much makeup.



I've been loving this Laqa & Co Eyelighter for a while, but recently started using it a lot more. I use it on my waterline to brighten my eyes. It's a beautiful rose gold shade, and is very pigmented. I'm gutted that I'm struggling to find this product in store or online to be able to repurchase, so if you see it anywhere... PLEASE let me know!


I've been on the hunt for a decent pair of false lashes that don't look ridiculous on my pea sized head for as long as I can remember. I happened to come across the Eylure Volume Petitie 107 in Boots, and my goodness... they're perfect. It wasn't just a problem with cutting the band to size, but it was the length of the lashes too. I found most lashes kept hitting right up to my eyebrows! The Eylure Petite's fit me perfectly, they feel natural and they're not heavy on my lids. Super pleased I found them!


Next up is something my boyfriend picked up in Asda for about £2! I'm obsessed with the scent of this Let Them Eat Cake Strawberry Gateau Bath and Shower Foam. It smells so amazing. I've been using this kind of like a bubble bath and it leaves my skin feeling great too. Absolute bargain for a couple quid!


Of course I'm still LOVING Game of thrones and Preacher but I didn't want to talk about them two months in a row. So this month, a 3rd TV show I've been enjoying is Channel 4's Naked Attraction. I know there is some controversy around this show but honestly I really like it. Eric and I watch it together and end up talking about who we'd pick! I like the diversity of it as well. They have same sex couples, bisexuals, and people from all walks of life, and all shape and size; which is something I admire. Well done on being inclusive!


My last favourite is something you may have seen cropping up on my social media a few times. I'm such a foody, and I tried the Lotus Biscoff Biscuit Spread for the first time not too long ago. I'm hooked. I can't get over how freaking amazing this stuff tastes. I've started eating it on toast, on pancakes, and even on crumpets! I'm onto my 2nd jar, and I'm not sure if that means I'm eating too much or not... I don't care, it tastes too good. 


I'm so excited for September. There is SO much happening. I'm going back to college, which my next blog post will be on and I'm just super excited for Autumn and Halloween. Especially as it's my first Autumn as a blogger - it'll be great seeing what kinds of posts I can get done!

Hope everyone else had a fabulous August! ❤
