Monthly Favourites: August

It’s the end of the month so I thought I’d round it all up by sharing with you what products/things I’ve been loving during August.

First up is a Yankee Candle that I have been burning non-stop! Strawberry Buttercream: it’s light, sweet and very yummy smelling. Only downside is that it makes me hungry whenever I go into my room…

Next is my favourite skin product of the month. Having gone away to a festival and having going to bed late and getting up early (or even not sleeping at all) as the norm for a few days, this little item was a lifesaver! It’s the Maybelline Baby Skin – Instant Fatigue Blur. It really helps your skin look fresh and glowing even if you feel the opposite.

My favourite body product that I’ve been putting on everyday is the Nip + Fab – Viper Venom Body Serum. The name is pretty scary but the cream actually works wonders to smooth, moisturise and tone skin. 

Next up, my decor favourite. During August I had a sudden urge to ‘summer’ up my room and try and make it a bit prettier and so I went out and bought some bunting from The Range. I can’t help but feel happy when I walk into my room to see some cute bunting hanging up, I love it!

Now is something a little strange. As you may have read in an previous post, earlier this month I went out and bought some coconut oil. This is because I’ve been doing something a little bit strange first thing in the morning called ‘oil pulling’. In a nutshell, this basically consists of putting a spoonful of oil in your mouth and swishing it around for about 20 minutes before spitting it out to draw out all the bad toxins from your body. I’ll do a more detailed post on this at a later date but I’ve already noticed a difference in my teeth’s whiteness, my skin’s condition and my general health. This oil from The Essential Oil Company has really worked a treat! 

My makeup favourite of the month has to be this Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in shade 20. It’s a gorgeous bright pink colour (not a shade I’d usually go for but in summer I felt a bit more daring). I wore it for a night out on the August bank holiday and I have to say, it made me feel pretty darn good all night!

Finally is my favourite song of the month and it’s ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift. It’s just so fun and happy and I can’t help but dance whenever I listen to it! I have a feeling it’ll be playing all the way through September too…
