August 2016 Favourites

31 August 2016

I'm so glad I started doing favourite posts. I love writing them up. So soz if you hate them (not really I don't really care haha). This month seems to have been crazy busy. I'm hoping September is a bit quieter. Probably not though. Life with my family is always go go go. Never thought I'd say this as I'm a total sun worshipper summer girl but I'm kinda looking forward to autumn. Cosy jumpers are the best. Plus beanie weather means I don't have to do my hair.

Anyways here's what I've been loving this month along with the billions of pain au chocolats I ate in France

August 2016 Favourites

Carex Love Hearts Soap

29 August 2016

My Dad hates coming to my house because all my soap smells edible. I've never known a man get so angry about soap that smells like delicious food. It's hilarious. My current kitchen soap smells like vanilla cookies. I was a little bit hesitant about trying this one though because I'm not a massive fan of the bubblegum one but oh my god you need this in your life.

Cheerz Photo Box

27 August 2016

I love taking photos and I love a good selfie with friends and family. However, I hate either having to go through the billions of snaps on my phone to show someone or faff about printing them off. That's how I discovered Cheerz. I've ordered from them before (post here) and had to make another order recently.

Illamasqua Precision Ink Liquid Liner

26 August 2016

Eyeliner is my biggest makeup addiction. Well I own more lipstick but if I could only use one item it would always be eyeliner. Hands down. In fact, if I'm being lazy I quite often just whack on some eyeliner and mascara. I wear it to play basketball because I'm a fierce queen who rocks those wings and wont be tamed. My family ask if I'm ill if I haven't done my wings. They're my signature look. My eyes look so naked without them.

Book Review// Tell No One by Harlan Coben

24 August 2016

My Twinny Sarah did a post on the TV show The Five a while ago and told me I should watch it. As soon as I started it I was hooked. I binge watched it on Now TV in about 2 days and loved it. It kept me engaged until the end and I was constantly trying to guess who had done it. I was wrong. I then made my family watch it and it was a huge hit. I then realised I had seen Harlan Coben's name before on my mums bookcase. I nicked the book and decided to give it a whirl.

August 2016 You Beauty Box

9 August 2016

Another month another You Beauty Box. I have to say I wasn't really excited by any of this months choices. But I thought I'd stick with it and use it as a way of trying new things for the grand total of £8.95. It was all skincare this month and although I am getting into it I would love to see more makeup in the box choices. Just give feed my makeup addiction please.

Original Source Skin Quench

5 August 2016

If you read my June Favourites you will know I am obsessed with Original Source products. I currently have about 6 shower gels on the go because I use a different one every time. They all smell incredible. I was so excited when I saw that they had brought out some new ranges. They now do Shower milks which I am dying to try. The cherry and almond one sounds magical and needs to be on my body. Then they have the Skin quench range which consists of body lotions, body butters, scrubs and shower gels. I picked up 2 of the shower gels in Superdrug.

Barry M Showgirl Mascara

3 August 2016

I am blessed with nice long eyelashes. One of the very few things I won in the genetic lottery. My body may fall apart but I have nice eyelashes so who's the real winner here? I tend to use mascara for it's volumising properties. I only ever really used Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Mascara and Volum' Express Megaplush. Those 2 are definitely my faves for volume and I don't really try any others. However, when I was fulfilling my nail polish addiction one day Barry M had an offer where you got the Showgirl Mascara for free when spending a certain amount of pennies. Gotta love a freebie.

Egg Fried Rice

1 August 2016

I am addicted to egg fried rice. It is hands down the best kind of rice. Who wants boring plain rice when you can have egg fried goodness? If I can't decide what to have for lunch, which is often, I either have a bowl of pasta or a bowl of egg fried rice. You can use it as a side or eat it on its own which I do quite a lot. Now I suck a recipe posts so brace yourself.
