August Favourites

Fragrance
Marc Jacobs limited edition Pink Honey- It may come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs fragrances. I have collected a fair few of them in the last few years and this delicious sweet Honey scent has crept its way up to my favourites. I have been using it a lot for work, as it is long lasting and the cute bottle fits right in my bag.

Ellie Saab La Parfum- As a newbie to all things Saab, I was skeptical about delving into a new brand of scent, but I am glad I did. Although, the smell is rather old ladyish....I am loving spraying it in the corners of my room. The jasmine undertones leave a woody and floral aroma and have left my room smelling fresh and fruity. 

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream- I understand the hype of this scent and the bottle is just beautiful. This has been the perfect blend of feminine and dreamy (hence the name) and has been my number one friend this month!

Beauty
Dior Vernis polishes- Oh my goodness, I never knew the meaning of 'Dior darling' until I was gifted this beautiful little set of polish and gel coat. I'm not one for brands or beauty in general, but I could really notice the difference between the higher end product and my usual 60 seconds to dry quick coat! I would definitely suggest splurging on the gel coat, I have been wearing shade Rouge 999 for five days and so far no chips; none!

Rimmel by Kate Nude Collection in 48- Always a huge admirer of all of Kate Moss's lipsticks for Rimmel, I picked up new number 48 and have been addicted ever since. It's smooth, soft and a bit vampy; but also not too much that you look like a bat out of hell on a summers day. 

Charlott Tilbury lipstick in So Marilyn- My current go-to red lipstick this month has been this beauty from Charlotte Tilbury, I love the shape of the bullet, it is so easy to apply and is the perfect shade of crimson.


Clothing
Topshop Ghillie Lace up flats-  These are on the more comfortable side of all the Ghillie shoes I have seen knocking about, I have been absolutely smitten with these, since I bought them earlier this month and can't seem to find anything they don't go with. Which is wonderful.

Topshop Velvet trim lace dress- Okay, so I may have been a bit naughty and gone on a Topshop spree this month, but I fell in love with this dress at first sight. High-neck, Victorian influences, velvet and lace...what more could a girl ask for. The sleeves are so perfect as well, I love magical sleeves. 
Skincare
Sanctuary White Lily & Damask Rose body butter- Everything is coming up roses with this butter, it smells divine and has great coverage. I feel like I am smothering myself in a whole bush of old-fashioned roses and a bouquet of wild lilies... but without the thorns. 

Soap And Glory Breakfast Scrub- When I first was recommended this, by a dear friend, I thought the idea of smelling like a bowl of oatmeal and honey was bizarre. But, as it turns out, this is now my daily scrub and my all time favourite. If you have desperately dry skin, like me and are looking for an inexpensive and delightful smelling way to do so; then I would say 100% go for this.

Burt's Bees Repair hand cream- Filled to the brim with shea butter and natural goodness, this has saved my hands whilst working practically everyday this summer. Although, I am not too keen of the smell, I have seen a huge difference in the texture of my skin, especially on my palms and fingers. 

Lush Let the good times roll cleanser- I have been very into scrubs recently and seeing as my skin reacts to nearly everything, I felt very lucky to have found a cleanser that doesn't. Good ole' Lush! It's very gentle and smells like popcorn and cinnamon and it gives your whole face a lovely glow.  

What have your favourites been this summer?
