August Favourites (2017)

Does anyone else think of their favourite things throughout the month and then when it comes time to actually write them up you completely forget what they are? Because, same. However, I have managed to put together a few of the things that I have loved this month so keep on reading to take a look!


Blistex has been a lifesaver for my lips in the past few weeks. I don’t know what happened (probably the change of season) but my lips got so dry. This helped so much. I use this all the time. It is a little bit pricey but it lasts forever so it actually works out to be well worth the money!

I also picked up the Young Solution Wipe Out Spot Eliminating Drops. It says to use these 4-5 time a day but I wear makeup every day during the week so I normally put them on in the morning and the evening. They work really well and really reduce the redness and size of any spots that I might have.

This MAC lipstick is in the shade Patisserie. It is a gorgeous nude shade and I have been wearing it every day to work for most of this month. It has lasted me for quite a while but now that I am wearing it almost every day I know that I will definitely need to pick up a new one fairly soon.


I used to wear an alice band or a bow in my hair every single day. Ever since I started working I have been wearing them less. This month I started wearing them again and I have fallen in love again. I am definitely going to be adding these back into my wardrobe. Also, I have been given so many compliments on them lately!

Travel Mug

I bought this from Cotton On. It was drastically marked down and I knew that I needed it. I take tea to school every day and this mug is just the perfect addition. It is really cute and seals really well. It doesn’t keep my tea as warm as some of the other mugs I have but it is so cute that I don’t even mind!

Have a look at what I was loving at this time last year:
