August favourites

At last, I have some favourites to share with you guys! I don't know how some bloggers manage to have new favourite items every month but I've definitely found some new loves during the month of August. Oh and how crazy is it that it's now September? From now till December is my favourite time of the year but we'll get into that in another post lol.

Zara perfume 

I really love me a good Zara perfume, very inexpensive but great scents. This is the second one I've bought from there and it's in the scent Femme. I also have the rollerball perfume in the same scent which comes in handy when I'm on the go. This smells divine, it's a lovely sweet scent and lasts for quite a while. This was only £7.99! I will definitely be trying out a new scent once this runs out.

Maybelline master precise liquid liner 

This product has actually been a favourite of mine for well over a year now and I thought why not add it to my favourites this month as I had just repurchased it after using my alternative eyeliner from collection brand. Before using this I wasn't really satisfied with the eyeliners I was using, I tried gels which I don't think I'll ever go back to by the way lol, for me liquid liners are just the best. The applicator on this is perfect, I mean it says in the name.. 'precise' which it really is when being applied. It gives that perfect cat eye and once applied, it remains very black whereas some I've used kind of lose that very black finish. You can get this for £5.99 in any drugstore!

Book - Half of a yellow sun

I first heard of Chimamanda in Beyonce's song Flawless where she played her speech on Feminism, from there on, I was very intrigued to find out more about her. After doing some research I saw that she actually had a lot of books out which were quite popular, my sister in law reads her books and she recommended this specific one to me. I got it in early August and I've been reading it since, I do find it hard to get reading time but I'm almost half way in this book and I'm really enjoying it so far! The story is so interesting and I can't wait to see how it ends. 


I am so happy to see how much of a trend bodysuits are this year, I only have a couple but I think having those basic bodysuits in your wardrobe really are good to have, you can just throw it on if you're chilling at home or dress it up if you're heading out. I got this one from New Look and I've definitely worn it quite a lot during August, it's just the best lol.

Body spray

This body spray is by a brand called So...? Which I actually blogged a bit about after going to the Bloggers Ball back in June. They gave me a great selection of their products but the one scent I fell in love with was called London. Once again, it's a sweet scent and I have this in the perfume too which means I won't be out any time soon! With the weather being hot here, this has been great to have in my bag and use throughout the day if I'm not necessarily feeling to top up on my perfume, I'll just use this instead. These are also super affordable and can be found in drugstores!
