August Favourites

Thursday, 28 August 2014

This is a new feautre post that I'm hoping to do every month in which I'll share with you the things I've been loving throughout the past month, but we all know how much I fail at blogging, so I'll see how it goes. Here is what I've been loving througout August:

1./Lush - Popcorn Lip Scrub
This may seem like a bit of a weird one and when I first heard of this product, I was a bit unsure. However, this past month, it has literally been my favourite beauty product. Working in an air conditioned shop all day, very drying on your skin, especially your lips. When your lips get dry, you get that really horrible dead skin on them and they become all cracked. This lip scrub from Lush is perfect because it gets rid of all the dead skin and because of the coconut and jojoba oils in it, the scrub moisturises your lips at the same time. Also, it's edible so you can lick it off afterwards and it tastes sooo good! I have the popcorn flavour, but you can also get it in Bubblegum and Mint Julips.

2./MAC - Lip Conditioner
This follows on from the previous product and is something that has been in my make up bag for a few years now, but I often forget about it. I was finding that at work, my beloved Body Shop Lip Butter wasn't keeping my lips very moisturised so I wanted to find something that would work better. That's when I stumbled across this and remembered how much I loved it. As well as keeping your lips moisturised throughout the day, it is slightly tinted pink so adds a lovely colour to your lips and is really nicely scented. The most depressing thing about this product is that it is now discontinued:( I have no idea why, but I'm just going to have to make this one last as long as possible.

3./MAC - Studio Fix Boldblack Lash
I have been a fan of 'Maybelline Falsies' mascara for ages now and it featured in one of my previous posts, but I thought it was about time I tried a different everyday mascara. I really like the MAC 'Haute & Naughty' mascara for nights out, but I find it too heavy to use as an everyday mascara so I went into MAC to see what else they had to offer. I knew my mum uses this mascara a lot and so I thought I would try it out. I absolutely love it! It gives just the right amount of volume and curl without looking too heavy for an everyday look.

4./Topshop - Hinge Plate Black Handbag
Now that I work in the centre of Croydon, I'm forever popping into shops, particularly Topshop, before or after a shift. This is proving dangerous because I keep seeing things that I like, but have no money to buy. I spotted this handbag a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with it. I really like the Michael Kors Selma Black Tote Bag, but at £315, I have a lot of saving do to before I can afford it. However, this Topshop one looked just like it and at only £40, I couldn't resist, so I treated myself to it as a 'congratulations on getting a new job present'.

5./Topshop - MOTO Denim Borg Western Jacket
Some of you may have seen my Top Ten Topshop Items Post in which I mentioned how much I loved this jacket. Well, Emil certaintly did and surprised me after work one day with it, as a belated graduation present. I was so happy, I don't think I stopped smiling for about 5 hours afterwards, I've worn it so much already and I absoloutely love it. It's so warm and snuggly - thank you Emil!

This is a bit of a random one, but I didn't want this post to be only focusing on fashion and beauty. I first got into Suits the night before my first exam in June (worst time possible) and quickly watched all of the series on Amazon prime. However, this month, I've been watching the fourth series and it is just so good. I try and limit myself to one a night, but sometimes you're left on such a cliffhanger at the end, that it's impossible not to watch the next one. For those who don't know, it's basically an American program about this law firm and different lawsuits etc. It sounds really boring, but it's not at all and for someone who doesn't know the first thing about law, I still really enjoy it. I have recommneded it to at least 3 friends and I know they have all become hooked on it.
