August Favourites

Hiya Lovelies!
Today I will be showing you what I have been loving the past month. August has been a pretty full on month. Here in the UK we had GCSE results day and A Level results day, so if you picked up results let me know in the comments how you got on! I got my A Level results and I did really well, so I secured my place at university to study Law. September is going to be an exciting month :)

So here are my August faves ...

1. Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder

I have struggled to find a bronzer that suits my complexion but this one from Essence is perfect. This is made for brunettes, and it's brilliant for contouring with as it is matte. In the past I have ended up with orangey/muddy streaks down my face, with this bronzer though I just take a little bit on my ElF contouring brush and it looks great, it's something you can build up. It also comes in a shade for blondes/light skin tones, and was only £3.50 from Wilko.

2. Maybelline Baby Lips Electro - Oh, Orange!

So the Maybelline baby lips electro collection recently launched here, and Oh Orange! is my favourite colour out of the three. It's a really wearable shade and it became an everyday essential for me in August.

3. Aussie Mega Shampoo and Conditioner

At the end of July I was having a real hair dilemma, my hair is really long and it was becoming unmanageable. This Aussie shampoo and conditioner has really helped though. They ensure you don't get build up leaving your hair feeling light and bouncy. I love the smell of this shampoo and conditioner too, and the fragrance seems to last longer than other shampoos I have used.

4. The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel

You guys know i'm a big fan of The Body Shop, and I love their shower gels. On my last visit I picked up this pink grapefruit shower gel for a change as I usually always go for the mango. I have really been loving this scent nearly as much as the mango, and that is saying something.

5. Music of the Month

As you know I always end my monthly faves post with my favourite song/album, this month though couldn't think of any new music I have been enjoying. But my love for Jake Bugg has deepened after watching his Reading and Leeds fest set. His albums, Jake Bugg and Shangri La, are just amazing! So if you would like, have a listen here.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know what you were loving through out August in the comments :)
