Hi Everyone, and welcome to my Monthly Favourites for August. We are finally here, and what a month it has been. This month the weather in the UK has been unpredictable, but I still made the most of it.
There has been so much going on in August. Here are just a few things:
- I reached my goal of 1000 followers on Twitter. It is lovely to see the blogging community expand and even noticing new bloggers coming onto the scene, which is wonderful. Thank you to everyone who has followed me on Twitter & Instagram and thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
- I have 4 guest blogposts go live this month. They were:
- I visited Spain for my relaxing Summer holiday.
- I spent the bank holiday weekend in London with my boyfriend and friends.
- Finally got chance to have my nails done with Shellac.
August Monthly Favourites
Film – The Brothers Grimsby
Last month, I watched a total of zero films, but August was completely different. This month I saw 4 films by 14th August. My favourite has to be The Brothers grimsby though. I had to have a half-way break as my sides were in pain from laughing so much.
TV Show – Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23
I remember watching Series of of Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 when I was in University, but then it seemed to vanish. I was so happy when I saw they had Seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix this month. So much that I got through the seasons within a week.
Music – Heathens – Twenty One Pilots
Another song from Twenty One Pilots this month. This one is a favourite due to the fact that I saw Suicide Squad and fell in love with the song.
Musical Soundtrack – Mamma Mia
After seeing Mamma Mia on my Birthday, I have been addicted to the movie soundtrack. My favourite songs have to be Honey Honey & Voulez-Vous.
Beauty – Benefit Dandelion & Clinique: Chubby Foundation Stick
Benefit Dandelion – Blusher
For months, I was on the look out for a new blusher. My all-time favourites for years were the Soap & Glory Blush Bricks as I mentioned in my Top 10 Soap & Glory Products post a while ago. In July, I picked up the Benefit Dandelion blusher on a whim. I am in love with this summer glow colour and beautiful packaging.
Clinique: Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick
I wrote a whole blogpost about my pros and cons of the Chubby Foundation Stick and now the sun has come out, I can say that I am in love with it. The consistency is perfect for the hot summer and it does last all day on my skin which is great. I love the thinness of the consistency as it feels like my pores can breath. It’s perfect.
Shopping – Primark
For a holiday where you know that you will be layering up on the suncream, the last thing you want is to get your good clothes stained. In Primark I picked up some string tops perfect for the beach and a pair of shorts and a cheap pair of sunglasses for the sea and it all came to less than £15. I can then reuse it next year, so I think that’s brilliant.
Food & Drink – Mocktail Mojito
If you didn’t already know, I am a teetotal. When you go to the pub/club with friends and sit there drinking the regular coke or orange juice, you do feel a bit out of it. This month, my go-to drink has been a Mocktail Mojito. I love the freshness of the drink and my boyfriend assures be that it really does taste like a Mojito should taste. Yummy!
Place To Be – Spain & London
This month I have been lucky enough to have two holidays. I firstly visted Spain for a week and then shortly after went to London. London is my favourite place to visit for a short break in the UK as there is just so much to see and do, you are really spoilt for choice. I will do a whole post about London very soon.
