August Favourites

Excuse me please, how fast is this year going? Surely that's not just me. This year has been a massive wake up call for me and I have learnt a lot of things about my self. Dare I even say it but i'm feelin' proud *sits back in chair, pops glasses on head* I start college in a week and I got all of the GCSE's I needed. August is a bit of a blur filled with sun, holidays and episode after episode of 'Say Yes To The Dress' (Randy, I love you). The things I have been loving this August are a complete mixture of beauty and randoms, so here goes.

The first thing on my list is a little weird but it's my VOSS bottle. If you don't know what they are, they are just large tall jars essentially with a lid that once held water. Long story short, a glass water bottle. For some strange reason, mine has kept encouraging me to drink the amount of water I should. If it works why should I stop hey? 

The second thing on my list is something that I do believe I mentioned in my holiday essentials post, my Jimmy Choo perfume. This quickly became my summer scent of 2014. I hope that in years to come when I smell it again it will remind me of all the memories I made this summer. The scent I would say is fruity but it does have a woody depth to it. Delicious. 

As per usual, my Tangle Teaser will have to make an appearance. How did I actually live without this? I really don't know. As summer is a kind of 'sticky' month. Everything is that little bit more sweaty and I'm really not sure if this is just me but my hair seems to knot excessively until it is just a big mat underneath my head, nice. I can always trust my tangle teaser to make me silky again. *high five* Tangle Teaser for being awesome.

In my world is the norm to have a favorite deodorant. I have always loved the Dove Go Fresh Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Scent 48h Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. 1) it doesn't really smell like Pomegranate but it smells amazing. 2) it doesn't make me choke. So really it's an all round winner.

And another thing that comes out of a can (smooth transition there, Antonia) Is my Batiste Dry Shampoo which throughout the summer months has been such a blessing. When it gets a little hotter dry shampoo is convenient to have just incase your feeling a little greasy. So easy to do which is always great. Batiste has always worked for me and they're super cheap too.

Finally, a food fave. This is a recent discovery for me. My dad recently made flat bread and oh em ge. I cannot describe how obsessed my whole family have become. The recipe is so super simple. It is something like an equal ratio of natural yogurt to flour. It's just so yummy. 

I wish you all a lovely September and let me know some of your August Faves in the comments or if you have done a post your self! Please leave your link, I do love a good nosey.

  1. I don't have a beauty blog, but a decoration one. However, I can talk about my summer beauty products. 1. Lina Bocardi non-stop eye liner nº1, black. I love it, it doesn't move whatever do you. 2. L'Oreal Pro-Keratin Refill Shampoo. Since I use it, my hair is shinier :) and 3. I guess is my deodorant "Sanex Dermo Extra Control spray" I had never used spray deodorant and I quite like it
