August favourites!

Hey guys!

Hope you are all feeling fine and dandy! Thankyou to all my new followers! Lovely to meet you and thankyou for the comments. So todays post, I thought I would do a monthly favourites, this could cover books, films, tv, food, music, makeup, fashion etc....how does that sound? I struggle to put the pictures where I would like them...any tips anyone?Well here goes my first one! In no particular order.
MAC Woodwinked
MAC Woodwinked
August favourites!

My August Favourite eyeshadow is MAC in Woodwinked. This shade is fab for day and night. For the day I use it alone with some black or brown smudged liner. For the night I use this as a base with either a copper shade, dark brown or purple! It has a sheen to it, it appears darker in the pot then what it does on my skin as you can see. This has been my favourite this month as it is lovely for the summer with pink lips.
For my hair I am loving Batiste Dry Shampoo in Tropical! This scent reminds me of Malibu!! Yum! I am nearly running out so for my next can I will try a different scent as heard they have made more!! The packaging is as always funky with a retro feel which I like. I am also happy that they have got this larger cans now as the little ones didnt last that long with using it daily to add volume (no I am not a grease monkey!lol). Also for my hair I have been loving the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi wild ginger sea spray. This spray is fantastic at adding volulme and giving my hair a tousled feel! The packaging is simple and the scent is divine!
For my skin I have been loving the Collin Resultime Regenerating Collagene Gel. I apply this gel before my moisturiser, it slightly tightens and keeps my skin feeling soft! A clear gel wiht a floral scent which I love. You can also use this gel as a face mask if you apply it thicker and leave, I am yet to try this! The packaging is brown and white, not great but then I am a sucker for nice packaging! Think they could improve this!But anyway this isnt a review is it its my august favourites!!lol! Back to what I should be doing! Guys this is a favourite that I have used everyday since recieving it in my Glossybox. Also my favourite at the moment is my ultra cheap moisteriser that I purchased a this month, I did a haul post featuring this. It will last me ages as you only need a little bit, I love the fresh cucumber scent and how it leaves my skin moisturised all day, my must have!
For my lips it is MAC Kinda Sexy! This is a coral/nude shade that looks great for summer teamed with bronzer! This is great daywear lippy! I think this would suit any skin tone. As always love MAC packaging! I could rave about MAC all day. But yep this is my favourite lipstick of this month.
My favourite scent is Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood, this scent is floral with a hint of a sweet that I cant for the life of me know but it definately reminds me of it! I have literally got tiny drops left, sad face. As always with my perfumes I seem to misplace the lid! How I dont know! But it is a round gold lid. Love the name of this! So this has been my favourite scent.

My favourite piece of jewellery is my Thomas Sabo purple ring! I chose this ring for my 21st from my grandparents and means a lot to me. I love statement jewellery and this certainly makes a statement! I love Thomas Sabo and have many pieces but this is my favourite! It is so sparkly! Picture does not give it justice.

Hope you enjoyed my August Favourites! Any comments are appreciated! I love to hear what you all think and reply to each and everyone! Thank you!!
