FAVOURITES : AUGUST





so for me summer has officially ended as i go back to school tomorrow *cries* and i'm not looking forward to it, one bit.  but on the bright side, i've had a really chilled and relaxed summer, and here are the things that i have loved throughout august.

nyx smokey eyes palette: i've been out quite a few times in august (birthdays etc.) so to make myself feel a bit more glam, i've loved a smokey eye.  usually i'm not that confident when it come to bold make-up but this palette has very pigmented dark and light shades, so if your like me, it perfect to do a subtle and daring smokey eye. 

benefit's they're real mascara: i started to use this at the end of july and have reached for it every time in august, if you would like to see it in use check out my blog post here where i used it in a make-up look.

ciate paint pots in my fair lady: i actually received this in a marie claire magazine about 2 years ago, but i've recently started to wear it again and find it is the perfect nude polish for me! its is quite sheer but after two coats it is thick enough.

garnier summer body moisturiser: this is a perfect tinted moisturiser that is quick and simple and isn't orange or muddy coloured at all.  also it smells gorgeous!

maybelline baby lips in pink punch: after waiting, for what feels like decades i have officially love baby lips, totally worth the hype!  this is my favourite shade and if you want to know more, i reviewed them here.

photowonder app: this is my favourite editing app at the moment!  it has super pretty filters and also allows you to create collages and decorate photos!  plus its free!

what have you been loving?

THE LIEBSTER AWARD

since i started my blog, i had noticed that many other bloggers had been nominated for the liebster awards, and always secretly wished i had been too!  so when i was reading my comments yesterday, i was thrilled to see that the gorgeous Tatyana from Tanya Doodle had nominated me, *jumps in joy*



so basically what the liebster award is for bloggers with under 200 follower, which is a way for new bloggers to meet new people and to get more followers.  in order to accept your nomination, you need to follow these rules:


  • You must link back the person who nominated you
  • You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you
  • You must pick several bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers
  • You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer
  • You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees

i'll start with the ten questions:

what's your favourite make-up brand?
i don't think i've actually found my absolute favourite make-up brand yet, but i have certain brands that i go to for specific items; for example, i usually get my foundation, concealer, powder and mascara from maybelline, nail polish from rimmel, eyeshadow from mac.

what is the most expensive thing you own?
i'm guessing this is meant to be make-up or fashion wise, if so my most expensive is either my mac eyeshadow quad or my giorgio armani maestro silk foundation.

favourite clothes shop?
i would have to say that my favourite clothes shop is tk maxx.  nearly my whole wardrobe is clothes from tk maxx and i can always find great clothes for really good prices!

name one beauty product you couldn't live without.
mascara, hands down.  if i was only allowed to wear one product for the rest of my life i would definitely choose mascara. i feel it just opens my eyes and always gives me a bit more confidence. 

what made you first start blogging?
it actually wasn't too long ago, so i am relatively new to the blogging 'world'.  i started it as a summer project to do but my love has grown for it.  zoella had always inspired me and i think i just finally got the confidence to start one.

what is your blog about and why did you pick that theme?
i chose to do a beauty and fashion blog as i have always been interested in both of these topics and thought why not to share my love for them with others!

who is your favourite blogger?
even though i love zoella's blog, i would have to say that my favourite blogger is The Sunday Girl, she post's daily about make-up and beauty, and her posts are always so helpful and i immediately want everything she reviews.

who is your inspiration?
my fashion inspiration would have to be olivia palermo and miranda kerr.  both of their styles is very relaxed but classy and always in fashion.  they are both so gorgeous and always wish to buy the exact outfit they wear!

what is your favourite TV show?
i watch a lot of american rubbish (as my parents love to call it), such as; honey boo boo, real housewives and keeping up with the kardashians (wouldn't you love to be in their family?! *sigh*).  however, i also love csi which sadly has just finished their recent series, that ended on such a cliffhanger!  

dresses or jeans?
tough question! in summer and spring i am totally a dress person but when it comes to winter and autumn i love my jeans! 


people who i nominate are:

and lastly my 10 questions:

who is your favourite fashion designer?
one product you would continue to repurchase?
most worn clothing item?
what is your favourite make up brand?
what product has been on your wishlist for a long time? and still hasn't been bought!
why did you start a blog?
favourite accessory?
heels or flats?
what is your go-to make up look?
who inspires you?
