August Favourites!

Is anyone's mind BLOWN by the fact it's September already?!
Next month is my birthday month which is very exciting, and it also means that Autumn is almost here, yay for the cold weather!! 

I don't have many favourites from last month really but the ones I have are ones I've been REALLY loving religiously! 
Plus I have a few random music/TV/book etc. ones on the end too :) 

Beauty faves!

I have this foundation in a pale shade too which is amazing for very fair skins, but I've been fake tanning up a storm the past month because of my new hair, and this shade is a super deep, tan shade which looks so glowy and fresh on the skin! 
Plus it's only a fiver! And this foundation just never seems to run out, the tube doesn't feel like it has a lot of product in it but it's very misleading, you actually get a lot of bang for your (very few!) bucks.

This is by far the best fake tan I've ever used! A bold claim I know, but I've tried the Xen-Tan Dark Lotion and personally I found it to be PANTS compared to the Lauren's Way! It blotches up on my skin and streaks and there's absolutely no way I could put it on for some instant colour before a night out, I'd look like a streaky mess! I'll do a review on the Xen-Tan sometime anyway, but I'd say save the £28.99 you'd spend on that and spend over £10 LESS on the Lauren's Way, I guarantee you'll be impressed! 

I'd forgotten all about this lipstick until I dyed my hair earlier this month and I wanted to wear a pink that would match my hair, and this is the perfect one! 
The formula is also lovely, feels slightly drying on my lips but it gives such a long-lasting, lovely colour that I'll forgive it for that! 

I haven't pulled this blusher out in a while but whilst I was ''shopping my stash'' I uncovered it and thought I'd give it a go, and I love it! 
It leaves such a gorgeous sheen on my cheeks and you can either wear it as a subtle flush (not my style!) or a pop of bright colour (definitely my style!).

I recently did a review of this palette (link here) and I said in that that I didn't think I'd use this palette half as much as I have, and it's so true! 
I use it all the time, there's something about the mix of colours in it that inspires me to use it and create new looks! 

Random faves!
No, my first random fave isn't ME, it's my hair! 
I've been absolutely loving having such bright hair, it has really made me dress differently and do my makeup differently.
I just generally feel fresher and like I'm more interested in my appearance, if that makes any sense!

This show has been back on our screens in the past month and it's my favourite programme to get cosy and watch! The best way to watch is with a cuppa and a slice of cake, with a side order of drooling over Paul Hollywood too of course ;)

This is the long-awaited (at least by me!) sequel to The Devil Wears Prada, and even though it wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be and it was a bit predictable at times, it was still a brilliant read and a book I wanted to keep reading and never wanted to put down!

Almost Is Never Enough - Ariana Grande ft Nathan Sykes
This song is absolutely gorgeous, this girl is definitely the new Mariah Carey and I hope she has huge success! Plus I can't believe the man singing is Nathan from The Wanted, who knew he had pipes like that?!

Roar - Katy Perry
The queen of quirky pop is back!! This song is so uplifting and a great one to sing along to, plus the lyric video is very clever! 

Please Don't Say You Love Me - Gabrielle Aplin
This song is right up my street, a laid back female singer is my favourite type of singer! She has such a beautiful tone to her voice and great lyrics.

And there's my August favourites! I hope you enjoyed :)
