It's that time again, and I honestly can't believe how quickly August passed by. It feels like only a couple of days since I was sat writing about my July favourites, and now I'm here again writing about my August ones...
August has been a pretty good month for me, mostly because I have been off school for the vast majority of it! I feel like I have done a lot within the month and achieved quite a lot with my blog etc...and of course there have also been a few things that I have been particularly loving, most of them being beauty related items.
Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette-you may well have all guessed that this would be in my favourites this month, as since I have got it I have practically not stopped talking about it, or posting photos of it on my Instagram. It is my first Naked palette, and I'm totally obsessed with it and can't wait to buy more of the Urban Decay palettes. The colour selection is perfect for me, as I love nude shades and I can easily use it to create both everyday looks and also more smokey looks.
Essie Buy Me a Cameo-this is my favourite Essie nail polish, and sadly it's running out right now :-(. Over the last month, I have been wearing this an awful lot as it just works so well with so many outfits. It's a lovely shiny shade and doesn't really tend to chip-even when it does, you can't even really tell as it is a quite light colour.
Real Techniques Buffing Brush-this is from the Core Collection that I got a couple of weeks ago, and it is probably my most used brush from the set. I don't think that it's actually meant to be used as a foundation brush, but that's what I use it for anyway as I feel it really blends my foundation well, and helps give me an even coverage.
Real Techniques Sponge-as you can probably tell, I'm having a bit of an obsessive moment over Real Techniques products right now. I bought the sponge before the brush set, as I had never tried a beauty sponge of any sort before but now I can honestly say I would definitely buy more. This specific sponge is amazing at blending my makeup, and it also washes really well which is a great plus.
The Girl on the Train book-I don't normally have a lot of time to read, and after being at school etc, I normally can't really be bothered to concentrate on a book. But in the holidays I had a bit more time on my hands, and had wanted to have a read of this book for so long seeing as it has recieved so many positive reviews. It didn't disappoint either, and was a fantastic read. From start to end I was constantly intrigued by the story line and didn't want to put the book down.
Well, another month that has passed by and before I know it I will probably be writing my September favourites. I am really looking forward to the coming months though, as I love autumn and winter (especially Christmas time).
Thank you for Reading,
