August favourites 2018


 Can you believe how fast this year is going. It seemed like August just happened in the blink of an eye. Now we're getting ready for the autumn/winter months and I have to say that I'm excited! A lot of bloggers like this time of the year because of the fashion, the festive feeling, the yummy drinks and food and the beautiful changes all around. 

Well, It's been a while since I did a favourites post and thought I would share with you what I've been loving lately. As you can see I started with a picture of Chocolate. I have a thing for dark chocolate together with mint and these chocolate bars I have loved since I was little. Technically they're not just an ''August favourite'' but I've treated myself to a few this month so I thought I would include it here.
 I bought this divine body butter months ago and it's lasted me for so long. I've just used the last few bits of the tub and it was a sad moment but another excuse for me to stock up on some more Kiehl's products. 

This was fantastic for my skin and absorbed very quickly but left my skin really soft even up until the next day. I think this product is an absolute must for the coming autumn/winter months especially if you have dry, sensitive skin like mine. 

This delight retails at £37.00, it may be a bit pricey but you get a lot of bang for your buck as they say and like I mentioned before, this lasted me months and I love it so much that I'm going to order some more. You can purchase this skin gem here 
I loved this collaboration with the fabulous The Pip Box it was the first time that I'd tried and come across a cruelty free subscription box. I thought it was a brilliant way for people who were trying to make the switch to cruelty free products find out where the best brands and products were. I also thought it was an absolute bargain for £20. You can find out what I thought about it here and you can treat yourself to one of these lovely subscription boxes here 


You can find the fantastic 'The Pip Box' on social media, you can find them at: 

One of my all time favourite brands I Love collaborated with me earlier this month and I became obsessed with their new scents. I bragged all about it in this post but two of the products that stood out for me straight away is the Exotic fruits body mist and the scrumptiously scented Glazed raspberry body butter

 Another collaboration I loved this month that was also fabulous and cruelty free was Yes to UK they have such an amazing range of skincare products which are such a delight for people who have sensitive, spot prone skin like mine. 

You can find out my thoughts on the 'Yes to UK' products together with stockists here and To find out more about the fabulous range of products that Yes To have to offer, check them out on their:




I've been loving this shade 'Damson' by Barry M Cosmetics It gives me 80s vibes and lasts all week. I always paint my nails on a Sunday and whenever I use a polish from Barry M it always lasts right through without chipping. 

I bought this polish from Superdrug for only £3.99
