August Favourites 2015

August is nearly over? How and where did that time go? Summer is nearly over and Autumn is just around the corner; however I’ve been loving a lot this past month that’d I’d love to share!


I feel like I’ve really enjoyed the world of beauty this month and found both new products and products that I had hiding away. First up Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob. I’m not a massive lip product person; but this neutral pinky shade has been perfect! It has only what I can describe as a waxy formula. It glides onto the lips nicely and is super long lasting! Second up is Mac Paintpot in Tailor Grey – unfortunately this product has been discontinued but its the perfect matte neutral brown shade. I’ve used it as a base for my eyeshadow; but equally it works well on its own. Which brings me onto my next favourite Naked Smoky Palette. Twelve gorgeous smoky shades to create the perfect smoky look. I’ve loved this so much and you can read a full review here. Finally for beauty I’ve loved Essie Pret-a-Surfer nail polish from their Summer collection. A gorgeous summery blue, it reminds me of the seaside and holidays! 


As far as skincare goes I’ve only really been loving two products this month. Starting off with Nivea Daily Essentials Oil Free Moisturising Day Cream (worlds longest name). I’ve struggled trying to find a moisturiser that was right for me; and finally I’ve done it! Its aimed at oily/combination skin type and works well to control oils but at the same time hydrate and moisturise the skin. A great new addition to my skincare routine. Secondly, a product I’ve fallen back in love with and that’s Lush Tea Tree Water. This works wonders when I have a few spots starting to appear or have had a bad breakout. With its antibacterial features it helps to keep dirt and spots at bay. Love it.

Music & Film

So many new songs out this month; I’ve been loving really upbeat songs as it is summer right? Some of my favourite include: Go by The Chemical Brothers, The Night Out by A.Trak vs. Martin Rework, Black Magic by Little Mix, Ocean Drive by Duke Dumont and Stay With Us by Seoul. And onto movies, Love, Rosie is one to watch! I saw it’d been added to Netflix and I loved it! I love the way its filmed; so cleverly done and is bound to make you cry at some point!


As you can see from the picture a phone case. None other than a Sighh Designs phone case. I decided to treat myself on results day, plus Polly was doing a 20% off deal that day. I decided to go for the Loopy Loop phone case but in the new premium quality. This means the finish of it is that bit better and also more likely to protect your phone. I looove it so much! Thanks Polly.
