August Monthly Favourites



I can not believe it is this time of the month again! This year is going so quickly, i can't believe its September! Christmas will be rolling round in no time. This months favourites is a little bit smaller than most but nevertheless i feel like i have found some true little gems! 


I had a bit of a splurge at The Body Shop! These three items are the ones that made it into my favourites. There will be a a more detailed review on all three. 

Wild Argan Oil The Radiant Oil - I really wanted to try something from there new argan oil range, and this was the one that caught my eye the most. You have use it both on your body and hair and oh my, i can not tell you how soft my skin feels afterwards! I have also started using this on my hair, i am still playing around with the right amount that i need at the moment but hopefully i will have mastered that by the time the review comes around!

The All in One BB Cream and Instablur - These two are in the same heading, because i brought them both together as a package for £20 and together they are amazing! I have been complemented on how much my skin is glowing and healthy it looks when i have worn this. My pours have definitely been hidden when using these products too! 



This was a complete impulse buy, it was one of the products that are down the isles where you queue for the tills. It is the mini kabuki brush from H&M, i was drawn in because of the cute little size and also because it is rose gold! But i am really liking this, it is super soft and really nice to add a touch of bronzer instead of all over the full over face.

 My nail have been awful over the last couple of months, peeling, weak, and just generally horrible. I have tried to much to get rid out it. But the Sally Hansen Miracle Cure seems to be the only thing thats making my nails better. I don't agree with the statement that you have stronger nails in three days, mine have taken a good month to start looking half decent again - maybe mine were just in really bad condition? But either way, it is doing its job and i am very thankful to it!

I have been wearing this bracelet all the time recently, i think it is the perfect summer colour and style. It is also something i am allowed to wear to work, which also makes it a bonus. So really it has only come off when i have been in the shower! I picked this up in the Warehouse sale recently.


Last but definitely not least are this beautiful slippers! I picked these up when i was in New York City last November, and it has only been these last few weeks i have started wearing them. Generally in summer i don't wear slippers and in winter i have some really cosy boot slippers, so i was saving these beauties for autumn. It technically isn't autumn yet, but the weather here in England has started to turn colder, and my feet are often the first things to feel the cold. They are super soft and i love the slight glitter and the lovely detailing on the bow! I brought these from American Eagle.

I have been loving two songs this month, one was brought out last year and the other is fairly recent..

I just think this song has so much emotion, so much meaning, and it is a song that will mean something different to each individual person. I can't stop listening to it, it never fails to give me goosebumps whenever i listen to it.

The second is..
I love Taylor Swift, i am definitely not a fan of the music video, i couldn't help cringing all the way through it! I didn't like the song when i first heard it, but the more i hear it the more i like it. I now found myself singing at random points of the day! It is no where near my favourite song of hers, but at the moment its all i have going around in my head.

What have you been loving for the month of August?
