August Favourites


Hey guys! It's monthly favourites time, so I'm just going to get straight into them.

You might have seen this featured in one of my recent haul posts and since the day I bought it I have been wearing it so much! It has quickly become one of my favourite tops and incorporates some much needed colour into my wardrobe. It is from Monki which is one of my favourite brands!


  • Black & White Striped Top
Again, this was featured in the same haul and I have been loving this one even more! It's so flattering on me. It's from Primark and I wish it came in more colours because I really love the fit and shape of it. 


I have been wearing the Bourjois bronzer for years now and recently I decided that I wanted to discover a new one. I decided not to go high end just yet as I had heard so many people rave about the Rimmel Natural Bronzer. I was not disappointed! In fact it is so much better than the Bourjois one as it is more pigmented. I also really love the colour pay off so I was very happy with this purchase. And for £4.49 you can't really argue.


  • Black Strappy Shoes
I bought these on a shopping trip with my friend Emily a few months back now and this month I have really worn them in. They look so nice and since it's been relatively warm they're fantastic for the weather. The best part about them is that they are incredibly comfortable so wearing them all night is not a problem. They're from H&M but I'm unsure if they'll still available now. You can tell from the picture that they have well and truly been worn in.


  • Snapchat
I have been absolutely loving Snapchat this month. I'm not sure why because I have had the app for a good couple of years but lately I've been using it almost everyday. It's just addictive! And that's strange because it's not even a game. Snapchat will always be a bit of a mystery to me because to be quite honest, there isn't a massive point to it. However I love it. Go ahead and add me on Snapchat my username is 'abieelucas' :-) I usually post stories daily.

I really never hear anybody talk about New Look's nail polishes and I have been guilty of ignoring them myself. However this colour 'Mink' really caught my eye as I've been searching for one this colour and bought it on a whim. It was only £2.99 so I thought it's not breaking the bank if it's rubbish. I wasn't expecting much from the cheap nail polish but honestly it's fantastic! I've been wearing it for about a week and I only have a few small chips here and there but I'm confident if I had used a base and/or a top coat it would still be looking perfect. I really urge you to try their collection because I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!



I have already spoken about this case in another post this month so I won't go into it too much but I have been really loving it and have received a lot of compliments on it! However if you're looking for something to really protect your phone I wouldn't buy this as it's a bit flimsy.


Another item that I have talked about before but I needed to add this into this post as I have been wearing at least one colour from the palette almost every single day! The colours are perfect for my colouring and eyes and they're really getting me excited for the Autumn make-up looks!! My most used colours have been Poppyseed, Quarry, Embark and Haux.


Yet another item I've featured before (sorry) but I really have been wearing it almost every day! In fact if I carry on this way I'm going to have to buy another. It's just the perfect every day nude and is very flattering! The picture doesn't really look like the colour it is in real life though..


Last but not least I wanted to add in my favourite film of the month. I have actually been to the cinema quite a few times this month however I didn't feel like any of the films that I had watched warranted a 'favourite'. Last week I decided to put on one of my favourite films, 'Big' and I'm so glad I did because I really have rekindled my love for it! Tom Hanks is my all time favourite actor and I believe this film is one of his best films he's done. It just has that magic that other films of its time had and I just thought I had to throw this in my favourites for this month :-) If you haven't seen it you really need to!

So that's it for my August Favourites. I hope you enjoyed reading this and be sure to let me know in the comments what you've been loving this month! Also let me know, do you love the film 'Big'? Thanks so much for reading and I'll catch you tomorrow in my next post!
