August Favourites

We are coming to the end of August and with its passing is the inevitable end of summer. Rather than dreading the coming winter months I've decided to celebrate the past month with a monthly favourites post. 

1. TOPSHOP Mini V Panel Bag

This bag was actually in my July wish list, and my lovely sisters surprised me with it on my birthday. Since then it has been glued to my hand throughout August. Its size has forced me to reduce the amount of junk I lug around with me, saving my poor shoulder! I now have a more minimalist approach to my bag essentials, whilst channelling the mini bag trend.

2. LUSH Cup o' Coffee Face and Body Mask

I have been on the hunt for a mask for a while so I was pleased when I discovered this one from Lush. It's coffee flavoured and it's scent packs a powerful punch, especially when smeared over the face. This may be too much for some, but I love coffee so it wakes me up and lifts my mood when on. My skin is left soft and smooth afterwards, thanks to the exfoliating coffee grounds.

3. NEW LOOK sunglasses

I picked these sunglasses up on a whim when I was in the Oxford Street New Look as they were only £6 and suited my face shape. I'm so glad that I did because I have been wearing them to death. Sunglasses are my current favourite accessory because they can elevate an outfit instantly. They also hide my face on a no make up day and give off a "don't talk to me" vibe on public transport.

4. ORAL-B Pro 600 Electric Toothbrush

I have wanted an electric toothbrush for ages as I am a little obsessed with dental hygiene as I like keeping my mouth clean and teeth filling-free. This toothbrush cleans my teeth really well, with minimal effort (good for those of us who are a bit slow in the mornings). I found myself running my tongue over my teeth the first time I used this, marvelling at how smooth they felt.

5. Adidas Superstar Trainers

These trainers were a nightmare to order as I wanted to get the Junior size due to the significant difference in price to the adults. However the first site I tried to order them from ran out of stock, and the second (Isme - I don't recommend) left me waiting for 2 months before I received them. Despite the stress, I am so happy that I bought them. They're monochrome and super versatile - I wear mine with everything. The only downside is that they are beautifully white, meaning I won't wear them if there is the possibility of mud.
