August favourites

Well hello to you my reader chums! Summer is quickly coming to a close and as much as I'll miss the sunny days, I can't wait for autumn. It means cosy nights in, oversized jumpers and the lead up to Christmas time. Like all months this year August swept by and during the month, I gathered a few favourites to share with you.

Here are my August favourites...

August favourites

Maybelline's anti-age eraser concealer

If you've read my blog for a while, you'd know my favourite ever concealer is Rimmel's 'wake me u'p, however this past month I've been using Maybelline's anti-age eraser concealer. I've read plenty of reviews on this concealer over the past few years, yet never gave it ago myself. Since I can never refuse a good makeup deal in Superdrug (hello 2 products for £10 in Maybelline), I decided to finally pick it up. 

The concealer has quickly become a favourite of mine - it's high coverage, blends easily and has a beautiful creamy consistency. My favourite part though is the unique brush, or should I say sponge. On top of the tube is a sponge that lets out a certain amount of concealer, after you twist it round several times. The sponge allows for the correct amount of concealer to come out, and makes application that little bit easier - I love it.

Real Techniques shading brush

It's no doubt that Real Techniques are mine and a lot of beauty bloggers favourite brushes - and there are many reason why. The brushes are soft as anything, blend in makeup like a dream and never shed when you wash them. My favourite this month has been the shading brush. Lately, I've been loving to run eye shadow under my eyes for a more dramtic look and this brush just does that. It's the right size to get under the eye and applies the correct amount of product.

Zoella Beauty 'Blissful Mistful' body mist

I'm a big fan of the Zoella Beauty brand, especially the scents as they're stronger than the general body mist. The classic shade 'Blissful Mistful' has been a favourite for a while but I've fallen in love with it again this month. It's sweet but not a sickly scent, and works for every season. I've loved the mini version especially as it means I can take it on the go or for overnight stays.

'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' book

This novel has been hyped by many book bloggers and top names, so I couldn't wait to give it a try. Although it took longer to get into than some books, once I was hooked, I loved every single word. As you delve deeper into the book, you develop an empathetic relationship with Eleanor and are keen to learn more and more about what happened in her past life. It's really interesting, insightful and I'm happy I got the chance to read it. If you're in the market for a new read, I'd definitely give it a go. 

Topshop camo jacket

Autumn fashion came a little early for me this year with my camo jacket. It's one of those jackets I absolutely love but forget I own until I've already put an outfit together. The past few weeks, I've been pairing it a lot more with outfits - and the colours have really got me excited for autumn fashion.

Belfast city break

It wouldn't be a favourites without mentioning an adventure or excursion. At the end of July/beginning of August, I took my boyfriend to Belfast for his birthday on a little adventure. I fell in love with the city of Belfast; it had a beautiful mix of city vibes and countryside. We went on a famous Game of Thrones tour, saw the best bits of city and spent some quality time together - it was a great way to kick off August.

I hope you enjoyed my August favourites. Which products have you loved this past month?
