Sunday Post: August Favourites

The summer holidays shave completely flown past - this weekend I properly moved in with Rob ready to start school next week and I am so nervous! I'm looking forward to getting into my classroom and I know that after a few days I'll settle in, but until then I'm a liiiitle bit anxious! It's been luxury to have a few weeks off and I've been enjoying having time to apply my make-up as slowly as I like in the morning and try some new products as well as shopping my stash!

On my lips I've been loving some Bourjois bits this month.  I gave in to the hype surrounding the Rouge Edition Velvet (I got the shade Ole Flamingo) and I'm happy I did - gorgeous colour, long lasting and comfortable to wear.  At the same time I grabbed a Color Boost lip pencil on Peach on the Beach which I can't get enough of for everyday wear.  It isn't particularly long lasting so touch-ups are essential, but it's such a beautiful shade and I can't stop wearing it.

After hitting pan big-time on my beloved Benefit Hoola, I dug this little palette out of my stash to use until I grab a new full-size, but I've ended up falling in love with it all over again! Inside the little box is miniature pans of Hoola, Coralista and Bella Bamba - the perfect bronzer and blushers for summer!

I seem to own lots of mini bottles of Soap and Glory Clean on Me shower gel, so I've been making efforts to use some up this month so I haven't got quite as much clutter to move with, and I just love it - it smells delicious and I feel lovely and clean without dry, tight skin or a greasy residue.  

Lastly, how cute are these little daisy earrings from Pandora?! I'm not much of a earring wearer, mainly because I always forget to put them in, but these have changed my habits.  I had them as a birthday present and they're adorable!

What have you been loving in August?


  1. Ole Flamingo looks like a lovely shade, I adore the Bourjois velvets! And Peach on the Beach has been an August favourite for me as well - such a perfect summer colour!
