August Favourites

August FavouritesHello everyone! It is absolutely crazy how fast August has gone and I’ve felt like this month has been a busy one due to the sheer speed at which it’s passed. It’s been all go and I haven’t just got beauty favourites to share, I’ve got a TV show and some tracks I’ve been listening to on heavy rotation which I’ve put into a wee Spotify playlist for your convenience.

Onto this month’s favourites:

1. Juicy Couture – Viva La Juicy – At the beginning of August I went to a huge discount beauty and makeup sale and surprisingly this perfume was the only thing I ended up purchasing. I’ve loved this scent for years but the price tag was always putting me off. I was super excited when I saw the 100ml size on sale for $79 and I thought, bargain! This perfume is so beautiful, the scent is not overpowering and lingers for hours. I’m glad I got the 100ml bottle because I’ve worn it just about everyday this month.

“The perfume opens with notes of wild berries and juicy mandarin. The heart encompasses a floral blend of honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine, while the base notes await us with a gourmet rhapsody of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and pralines.” (Source: Fragrantica).

2. Blue canvas shoes – I’ve had these shoes for a few years now and they are so comfortable. They are perfect for casual outfits and look especially nice with jeans and leggings. I can wear these for a day shopping and my feet don’t get sore or tired. I have been wearing these a bit lately as the weather has been in between hot and cold and I’m not ready to let go of winter yet.

3. Vaseline – This might seem odd but there is a purpose for this being here! I mentioned in the intro I thought I was getting sick and I went to the doctor who mentioned putting vaseline on the cracked skin around my nose to help it heal. When I get sick it’s my nose that gives me the most grief and I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of this before. That was the only useful thing the doctor told me, but the less said about that the better!

4. Revlon Lip Butters – I feel guilty, I mentioned buying these last month and I still haven’t got around to showing them to you, next month I promise! I won’t talk about these too much but I will say they are lovely and I was surprised how opaque they are, lots of reviews I read talked about their sheerness. Must be my super pale lips making things pigmented again.

5. Pinterest – I mentioned in my I’m Back! Pt. 2 post that I had joined Pinterest and I’m pleased to say I’m still loving it! It’s much easier to use than I imagined and this is a very rare case of me preferring the app to using my laptop. The app is so simple and quick for scrolling through everyone’s pins. If you haven’t followed me yet, what are you waiting for: pinterest.com/chanellehayley.

6. Take Me Out – Cheesy jokes, check. (Some) good looking boys, check. Hilarious host, check. I know this show is pretty popular in The UK and I’d heard of it but never seen it until a couple of months ago. I decided to include it this month as it was the series finale on Friday. *sob* For those of you who haven’t seen Take Me Out a single man tries to get a date with one of 30 single women. Each woman has a light which can be turned off at any point through a series of introduction and skill rounds. If after round three there are more than two lights still on, the single man has to get it down to two. Finally, he poses a question to the remaining girls before deciding which one he wants to take out.

    I personally found the Revlon Lip Butters to have quite a bit of pigment, even though my lips are quite pigmented themselves! Certain shades are more than others but a shade like Lollipop is like a lipstick!
    Great list of favourites – hope Sept brings many more! 🙂

    Bahahaha, “that was the only useful thing the doctor told me.” Hahaha! Yeah Vaseline is GREAT. I use it on cuts, scrapes, dry skin, my feet (with fluffy socks… try it like a leave in conditioner for your feet overnight!!!) and even on my sons butt when we run out of diaper cream!!! It’s awesome 🙂

    GREAT August favourites, such a nice mix of items! I’ll be putting my favourites post up soon, though I must admit it is a little shorter than usual, just because August seems to have been the quickest month yet!
