August favourites

Sunday, 31 August 2014


Yep...another favourites post!  That is another month is over!  That is summer is nearly over! *sigh!* But while I excitedly prepare for the colder days yet to come, in the hope that this happens soon, I am going to share with you this month's favourites. Now this was the hottest month yet and for me anything above 20 degrees is hot so I have quite a low bench mark for heat. You can imagine how living in 37 degrees felt...bless the air conditioning.

Heat and make-up don't go quite well so I have been going for lighter bases this month. My favourite was the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation in B30 Beige. This is like skin in a bottle. Just a light cover to even out skin tone creating a flawless, natural and glowy finish. Quite pricey for a foundation. A cheaper alternative would be the L'Oreal True Match Foundation, not the same but quite similar

Beginning of the summer I mentioned Tanya Burr's lip gloss in the shade picnic in the park as one of my favourites.  This month, another from the set is featured, this time it's Chic.  I dare say that I have found my perfect nude...really.  So, whatever the look was I couldn't go wrong with it, be it a day look or a lovely vamped up smoky eye.  The name truly suits the shade.

By now you probably know how much I love nail polish which means I'm always purchasing new shades. My recent purchase is the Rimmel Rita Ora Nail Polish in the shade Pillow Talk. A lovely sky blue that applies very well with two coats, dries quickly and is stupidly cheap.

Shoes is not my usual entry in my favourites. This month though... I have recently bought a pair of Red Herring flats and they're casual but semi-dressy at the same time. Let's say they have been my go to shoes as well as my heel alternative.

As for music, this month I have been loving Troye Sivan's EP TRXYE. Playing it non-stop everywhere, my headphones can probably sing it to me without being plugged anywhere.  Fun being my favourite track on there. Have a listen if you haven't yet.

The next monthly favourites post will be in Autumn.  Exciting but it also means that most of the content will be very new and wintry.  The coming month is the one for the transition from summer to autumn.  If you need some tips and help to make this transition watch out for my seasonal trend series...coming soon :)
