August Favourites


Afternoon everybody! I'm currently sat in my living room with a cosy blanket around me and my dressing gown on. I'm one step away from putting the heating on, despite it being bright sunshine outside - aka, it is officially autumn. I know this is a little (a lot!) late, but I love doing favourites posts, so I couldn't miss it out! 

Firstly, I will just explain why this post took a long time - with such destructive natures in my household...


Yes, I know, he's abnormally adorable. ANYWAY, lets begin!

1. 
2016/2017 Diary
Paperchase
I absolutely LOVE Paperchase, not just for stationary, but they have so many great little surprises. I recently lost my 2016 diary (I say recently..months ago!) so I picked up this one! The design is just so beautiful, I really am enjoying using a diary again. The format is a page per weekday with ruled lines and half a page for weekends, so plenty of room to note down your schedules. 

2. 
Artis Brush Cleansing Foam
Space NK
You may remember that I previously mentioned this product in a shopping haul I did last month. I still cannot express how much I love this brush cleanser. It makes cleaning your brushes so easy, also making the feel of the bristles afterwards extremely soft and conditioned. I have seen a few negative reviews about this product - but personally, I love it. It has been the best brush cleanser I have used, I will also say this is especially great for cleaning smaller eye brushes. 

3.
LUSH Lip Scrub - Bubblegum Flavour
LUSH Cosmetics
I have become obsessed with this little treat from LUSH, I am also bitterly disappointed I never discovered it sooner! You simply apply this scrub to your lips AND to make this product seem even better you can lick it off your lips as it is made from sugar. It tastes incredible, a gorgeous bubblegum sugary treat. 

4.
Tangle Teezer Blow Styling Smoothing Tool Full Size
Boots
I cannot express into words how much I love this brush. Okay, so, piece of advice - throw away EVERY blow drying tool you own. If, like me, you have long hair this will be your new best friend. I, like so many of you, are a huge fan of Tangle Teezers. I urge you to invest, great for when your hair is wet too!

5. 
Kiko Water Eyeshadow [Shade 208]
Kiko Cosmetics
Yet another product I picked up in the shopping haul I did last month and cannot stop using. I absolutely love this eyeshadow. It can be used wet or dry, however I always use it dry and the pigmentation is incredible. Great for a nighttime or a daytime look!

6. 
Buttered Brazils 
Lush Cosmetics
In my whole adult life spent obsessing over LUSH, I have never tried a lip balm from LUSH...until now! I have become addicted to the buttered brazils lip balm. I use lip balm all day long anyway, but this has got me using them even more than before. It has such a gorgeous chocolate scent with lots of cocoa butter inside making your lips extremely soft. 

7. 
SINNLIG Scented Candle
IKEA
Ultimate bargain of my August favourites! I am a huge fan of IKEA candles, they're such good value and the scents burn so nicely around the room. This candle was 85 pence and fills my whole kitchen of a gorgeous orange citrus scent. It really makes your home feel so cosy, I bought about three of them!

8.
'All You Need Is Tea' Mug
Paperchase.
This mug is so super cute! I couldn't resist buying this, I just find it looks adorable on my desk constantly filled with green tea. So affordable and beautifully designed. Love Love Love.

9. 
Origins GinZing Peel-Off Mask To Refine & Refresh 
House Of Fraser
I had heard so many good things about this face mask over recent months and it took me SO long to purchase it as it has been out of stock everywhere. It is beyond wonderful, you apply it all over your skin so you look like a bronzed goddess. Now, the best part, you get to peel it all off! Just like when you were a kid at school peeling off PVA glue from your hands. This also leaves your skin baby soft!

10. 
Naked 3 Palette
Urban Decay
I have always loved the Naked Palettes, but throughout August, I have fallen back in love Naked 3. I have used it almost everyday for nighttime and daytime. The shades can create lovely feminine delicate looks as well as, smokey dark nighttime looks! I have been obsessed with the shades Dust, Trick and Factory. 

11. 
Fiji Water
Waitrose
Ever since my trip to New York last September, I have been addicted to Fiji water as it is sold everywhere in the states. Now it is becoming more and more regular for Waitrose to have it on offer [2 for £2] so I am FOREVER stocking up and filling my fridge! I love the packaging and the taste is just so smooth. Plus the Kardashians drink it - Here's to feeling fancy!

So there we are, the end of August favourites! Please link me to yours as I love reading them!

    1. It really is amazing! I strongly recommend you purchase one! Ooh I did a review of the drink up mask (I am also doing a full face mask review on both the drink up and Ginzing!) I mentioned the drink up in my July favourites [http://www.christaabelle.co.uk/2016/08/july-favourites.html]
      Thank you for your comment <3 xx

  2. Haha I saw your tweet about your cat playing with your flatlay, he's so adorable! Naked 3 is such a perfect Summer palette, I really loved using it a lot more this month! I'm a massive fan of the Lush lip scrubs as well, they are really effective! xx
