August Favourites

I've got eight favourites for the month of August including beauty, music, social media and a really random one at the end.

1) I watched a lot of review and swatch videos before buying a NYX matte lip cream because I don't want to just buy things for hypes sake. I went with Antwerp for my first cream and I'm obsessed with everything about it. I've been wearing it everyday I'm not working. It is super easy to apply, only needs one coat and lasts for so long.

2) I bite my lips a lot so they generally aren't in the best state. This month I've been loving the Blistex 'orange mango blast' so keep them (somewhat) protected from the cold.

3) I've started applying my concealer with a brush and I can't even tell you the difference it's made. The brush I use is an angled eyeshadow brush as it was the only brush I had without a use but it works just as good as any other. I find my concealer applies less patchy and lasts a lot longer that it used to.

4) 'Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate' but I love Taylor Swift's new song and I can't wait for her new album. It was not what I was expecting and I definitely prefer Taylor's old sound but I still absolutely love the track and her ability to write a catchy tune hasn't gone anywhere.

5) On the subject of music, how amazing is Collabro's album??
I can't tell you how many times I had their audition with 'Stars' on replay. They're voices are brilliant, I've got a total soft spot for Jamie and I love that they've stuck to their musical theatre roots with the album.

6) MY go to scent of the month has been 'Bejewelled' by Vera Wang. I think the bottle is beautiful and very girly. Just look at how pretty it is :)

7) This month I've got an Instagram of the month. I'm obsessed with Louise Roe's page. She is such a fashion icon, gorgeous lady and just seems like a genuinely lovely person. If you love fashion definitely make sure you check out her page.

8) My final favourite is work related. After 9 months of being a 'Christmas temp' I finally got my permanent contract this month!! (yaayy) I was the only one kept on out of ten(ish) temps after the Christmas season but, up until now, I'd just been on a rolling contract so it's nice having that job security. I finally feel like an official part of the team.

What have you guys been loving this month? Any recommendations?
