August Favourites

Believe it or not, almost a year of blogging and I’ve never done a favourites post – hard to believe, right?! It always comes to the end of the month and I never think I have enough things to mention, however this month, getting ready for Sixth Form I’ve given my room a slight make-over which is still in progress, and I’ve got myself organised which also includes making lists! I’ve left a notepad on my chest of drawers and added any ideas for new posts, things I want to buy and favourites! Turns out there is quite a few things I’ve been loving recently!!

Barry M Gelly Nail Polish
If you know me, you know I am Barry M’s number one fan – with almost 30 of their polishes. The Gelly’s are a newer range which are slightly thicker in consistently and give a much glossier and gel-like finish when applied. I’ve got a few and my favourite shades right now are Grapefruit, a darker pink and Papaya a more coral like shade.

Soap and Glory Hand Food Hand Cream
I’ve never really bothered about hand cream and very rarely feel the need to use it, however after getting the Soap and Glory Hand Food Hand Cream in a pack for my birthday back in May, I’ve found myself using it a lot, especially just before I go to bed. It’s got a gorgeous peachy smell and is a perfect size to chuck in my bag.

Natural Collection Mascara
I bought this waterproof mascara just before I went on Holiday after realising none of the mascara’s I already own weren’t waterproof. This cost super cheapm only two or three pounds so I gave it a go. Although it’s certainly not waterproof, I do really love the way it lengthens and volumises my lashes and it’s been a great alternative after my Avon one ran out.

Avon Illuminating Face Pearls
This was one of my very first make-up purchases and I’ve found myself going back to it this month. I think it was originally considered a blush when I first bought it but has since been changed to Illuminating Face Pearls, none the less it’s great for adding some subtle colour to the cheeks, aswell as to the whole face which I found myself doing while on holiday. It adds the colour as well as a bit of shimmer giving a healthy glow. I can also tell these will last a lifetime, so definitely a good purchase!

Minion Rush
Minion Rush is a game I stumbled upon on my Dad’s ipad – it’s ultimately a dupe of the very raved Temple Run, but way cuter. I found myself addicted to this on holiday, it’s a simple and easy game to play and the sound effects were adorable. Although I’ve never watched either of the Despicable Me films, I now want myself a Minion!

Sophie McKenzie Books
August was the holiday month and holiday means sunbathing which therefore means books! My family and I literally spend our whole holiday in the sunshine reading, we only venture outside the villa in the evening. This year I went back to my all time favourite Author Sophie McKenzie – she had written the first book I ever fell in love with – ‘Girl Missing’. This year I read ‘Falling Fast’ – a romance novel and ‘Missing Me’ – a slightly more thriller genre. She’s such a great author, and although I’m probably too old for her writing now, I will continue to read all of her books!

 Song – Can We Dance – The Vamps
There’s a new boyband on the block and they’re definitely cute as a button. I’ve promised myslef I wont fall in love with them like I have with both The Wanted and Union J. However their first single is SO catchy and I have a feeling it’s going to take the UK  by storm. Stay away Lucy. You can’t fall in love with anymore people. Being a fangirl is a very expensive occupation, you know?
