August Favourites

I was washing my hair the other day thinking about how much I love the shampoo and conditioner I've been using when I suddenly thought... People NEED to know about these products, that's when I figured I would write a post about my favourite things from August.

Seeing as the hair products gave me the idea it's only fair that I start with them so here we go!

1. Garnier's Ultimate Blends in 'Honey Tressure'. 
I've been using both the shampoo and conditioner for a few months and I've re-purchased it every time, it just leaves your hair feeling so soft and super shiny!
 In August I went to Croatia for 2 weeks so my hair and I spent a lot of time in the sun and in the sea, by the end of each day my hair would feel like straw and after spending hours in a messy bun it would also be full of knots, to the point where I would dread trying to get a brush through it. As much as my hair seemed to hate me for all of this, the Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner literally worked miracles. The products are aimed at dry and damaged hair and claims to strengthen, nourish and protect and I can definitely say it didn't let me down!

The Strength Restorer Balm is a lovely thick conditioner which can also be used as a mask, when we arrived home after our holiday I left this in my hair over night and my hair had honestly never felt so soft and smooth the next day!

As a girl with fairly curly and frizzy hair who straightens it all through the week I have come to rely on these products to make my hair feel healthy again! 

You can shop these products at the bottom of the post :)

2. MAC Cosmetics lipstick in 'Yash'

Yash by MAC has quickly become my go to lipstick since picking it up at the end of July. It's a matte nude with a brown undertone and I am literally obsessed with the shade. Although it's a matte shade it is still quite creamy when you apply it so it doesn't dry out your lips or become cracked.. what more can you ask for?! 

If you like MAC's 'Honey Love' then you should definitely give this a try, they are fairly similar though Honey Love has more of a pink undertone! 

3. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine # 8

I picked this beauty up in Duty Free at Gatwick Airport whilst waiting for our flight to Croatia, I'd been eyeing them up for a while so I decided to take the plunge and I'm so glad I did! I wanted something with a pinky/purple shade that I could wear in the day time to keep my lips hydrated but also give me some colour and this shade did exactly that.

Not only is the packaging and the shade gorgeous but it's hydrating and...SMELLS LIKE WATERMELON!!! **Heart eyes everywhere** Ah guys, it's seriously amazing! The Rouge Volupte Shine range is all beautiful and now I definitely want to get my hands on some more, they are a more pricey product but it's also a great quality product.

4. NYX 'Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo'

I love NYX, I haven't found a product from them yet that I don't like and for the price of their products you literally can't go wrong! I grabbed this Sculpt and Highlight wand at the end of July and I have been loving it, it's formula is really creamy so it blends like a dream!

I was pretty terrified when I first saw the colour of the contour shade but after you blend it over your foundation it leaves you with the perfect contour or you can use it as a bronzer if you want a warmer tone to your face. It comes in a variety of shades as well so I'd recommend giving this a try seeing as it cost only £9.00!

5. New Look White Back Pack

There's not an awful lot to say about this bag but I just can't put it down, it has been coming everywhere with me and even though it's small I seem to be able to get so much inside it! How had I never realised how convenient back packs where? It's a total game changer! I picked up this one from New Look for just £17.99!

6. Aldo Choker

I mean... do I even need to say anything? This choker is just perfection and I want to wear it forever! Aldo have some gorgeous chokers and I have a few more waiting in my saved items list, if only I could figure out which one to buy next! ..This is one reason I hate being a student, otherwise I would buy every. single. one!
