August Favourites 2016

I honestly do not remember the last time I wrote a monthly favourites blog post, and it's always because I forget until like the 10th of the next month, and by that point I might as well wait to do that month's favourites, and it's just a vicious cycle really. Anyway, August has apparently been lucky and not forgotten, so here are a few of my favourites from the past month - let's kick it off with the beauty bits!



Beauty

1) L'Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask
My skin has been a bit dehydrated and dull since I got back from my holiday so I decided to pick up the new L'Oreal Glow Mask from Boots, just to see if it could give my skin the pick-me-up that it needed. I have to say, after using it twice a week, it has made my skin so much softer and a bit brighter too. The mask has gentle exfoliating beads in which help to exfoliate the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. I reckon after regular use I will start to see a massive change in my skin!

2) NYX Brow Gel
I was travelling between houses at the weekends throughout August, and one weekend I left my beloved Anastasia Dip Brow at my parents house, and had to dig around to find something to fill my brows in with before work. Luckily I had my NYX Brow Gel in my drawers somewhere, and after using it I realised how much I love it. It's so easy to apply and a little goes a really long way, I cannot imagine running out of this stuff anytime soon. It stays in place all day, also keeping the brows firmly locked in place, and doesn't go at all patchy. I definitely recommend this one for those of you who like strong brows, like me!

3) Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita
If you read one of my latest blog posts which I will link here, you'll know that this baby is my new absolute favourite. Check out the post if you want to know more, but in brief, it is the most beautiful pinky matte nude which is super comfortable on the lips and goes with absolutely any makeup look. I've been wearing it non-stop for the past two weeks!

Lifestyle

4) Cardio
'Hold up', I hear you all cry. YES, I am talking about the exercise. I am absolutely loving Cardio at the moment, I don't know why ?! (100% because I am staying with my parents for a bit and they feed me up like a Christmas Turkey...). I always feel so happy and motivated after a cardio session, and it's something I never regret doing. A particular favourite of mine is 15-30 minutes on the StairMaster (if you've ever met a StairMaster, you will be crying at the thought right now), which is a killer but you definitely leave the gym looking like a sweaty beast!

5) Power TV Show
If you love shows about drugs, gangsters, money, love, sex and just overall action shows, you will LOVE Power. Me and the boyfriend have been watching it for a few months now and we are finally up to date (watching the new episode every week when it's released on Netflix). It's so gripping and you really fall in love with the characters, plus there's so much drama and action you really cannot get bored.

6) Hummus Chips

I recently discovered Hummus Chips down the 'Free From' aisle in my local Tesco, and I have fallen in love, sadly there is no packet left for me to show you. I get the Tomato and Basil flavour and they're just a much healthier (and tastier...) alternative to crisps, not to mention the bag is much larger and generally much more filled than the joke that is Walkers crisps...

Fashion

7) Nike Air Force 1's
I've had these since Christmas, but lately with the weather being a bit nicer and the need for my beloved black boot collection diminishing, I've pulled these bad boys out of the bag. I particularly love wearing them with my Topshop Pleated 'Awkward Length' Trousers which I have spammed my Instagram with (but they're just so beautiful so no regrets!), but they also work well with jeans or denim shorts. They are kinda chunky and heavy, but super comfortable!

8) Missguided Pink Suede Biker Jacket
Oh my lord, this is the new love of my life! I am contemplating buying it in another shade as it's just such a beautiful jacket to throw on. I've never really been much of a pink girl but honestly this has changed me and I have got so much wear out of this jacket in the past month on those slightly chillier days.

What were you loving during August?
