August favourites!

I love reading this post and I did mean to one last month but never really got round to it. I don't have loads of favourites this month but I do have a few, so enjoy! :)
I have had this highlighter for ages now I had it for a present but I only now started using it this week. It works really well with my skin tone and I love it! I find it really leaves my skin with a natural looking glow. It is a bit pricey at £18.50 but I do think it's worth it. You can buy this highlighter on the link here;

I recieved this sample of yves saint laurent mascara free from the website 'whats in my handbag'. Incase anyone doesn't know what this website is its a site where you sign up for free trials of products there is no guarantee that you will get picked for a trial but there is always a chance. I got picked for this trial and I must say I was VERY impressed with this sample, I will actually be purchasing the full sized procuct. The brush is lovely and the mascara doesn't irritate my eyes at all. The sample was actually of a reasonable size I have been using it for 2 weeks now and there is still plenty left. As you can see from the picture it really enhancing my eyelashes. Overall I would easily give this mascara a 10/10.
 
 
 
 
I love a bubble bath I honestly think you cannot beat a lovely long soak in a relaxing bath of bubbles! In my case I love a glass of rose, a book and bubbles! These 2 are my favourite bubble bath's this month! I have mentioned in previous posts that I have trouble sleeping I find that these relax me so much before bed that they do definetley help me to sleep! They both smell gorgeous too! The boots botanics bubble bath is £4.19 and radoz is usually priced between £1-£1.50.
 
 




I haven't had a plait since I was younger so the other day when my friend done me a fishtail plait I loved it! My hair is also finally growing which I am thrilled about!







 

This is my new favourite lipstick. It is a natural collection lipstick in shade 'crimson'. It is only £1.99 but it actually works better than a lot of my more expensive lipsticks. It stays on for ages which I am happy about, I hate having to constantly reapply lipstick.
 
 
One day last week I didn't have enough time to wash my hair before going out. This dry shampoo came to the rescue! I didn't have to use much of it but it really did save the day. I find it leaves hair feeling really refreshed and not at all unwashed! I really reccomend buying a bottle of dry shampoo because you never know when you will be in need of an emergency use!






I love this perfume! I have been using this perfume for ages but I stopped using it about 3 months ago when I bought britney spears's perfume. I went back to using it again and I realised all over again just how much I love it!

I had this book as a christmas present last year and I LOVE it! Its full of amazing easy to do makeup looks! I think this woman is amazing! She shows really easy to do tutorials of different makeup looks and gives really useful and handy tips throughout the book. I honestly think that this book is every bloggers dream! So far I have only tried out the megan fox makeup and the taylor swift one but I can't wait to try out more!
You can buy this book for £14.44 from amazon.

If your wondering why I have only now used it since christmas its because I had a BIG sort out of my room and started to use this book again.


 
 
 
This is another book that I had for christmas and haven't used until now (this room sort out really benefited me) I LOVE this book. Its basically a book full of empty fashion pages which you can decorate yourself. Its like a colouring book for adults. I love getting creative, and there is no better way than to get creative than with a book full of fashion. For anyone that wants to get in touch with their creative/childlike self I reccomend buying this. Another thing I found that this book has done for me is relief stress. I find that I blank out and just concentrate on what I'm doing which is perfect to take your mind off things. You can buy this book for £9.06 on Amazon.

I adore this hand cream. In fact I adore everything burts bees. I love everything about this product. The smell is gorgeous, I literally want to sit there all day and smell the pot (A bit overdramatic yes but you get the picture). This hand cream doesn't leave my hands feeling at all greasy which I have found previous hand cream's have done. I have owned this for about 3 weeks now and It is still pretty much full I have barely used any considering I have been putting it on my hands every day. It will definetley last me a while. I think this is well worth the price. You can buy this product for £7.67 on Amazon.

I have become totally obsessed with this film! I must have watched it about 10 times this month. I think it is such a romantic film but also a comedy, I love it! If you haven't seen this film then you MUST watch it! I also think that Mila Kunis is such a gorgeous person, I would love to look like her. She has a great sense of style too and always looks amazing photographed!
