Some Favourites from August

Hello everyone,

Today has been not such a busy day for me, just a few bits and bobs to do around the house. It is also raining outside so I haven't really felt the need to go anywhere. Because of this...I thought I would put up little post about things I have been loving throughout August, and with it being the last day of the month it seemed like a good time :)

The first thing is a foundation, I got this at the start of this month and have been using it pretty much every day. It is the new Rimmel "Wake Me Up" foundation, it was a bit of an impulse buy when I was wondering around Sainsburys looking for something for dinner. It was on offer for £5 near the till and I thought "why not...?"

I am SO glad I did! Like I said I have been using it nearly everyday and its not like any other foundation I have tried mainly because it has very fine, very subtle glitter through it. I had heard other people talk about this but it was still kind of a surprise when I used it. It is a lovely thick consistency, goes on well and blends easily into my skin. I would say it has medium to full coverage (which I like because I get redness around my nose and cheeks) and it seems to be very buildable too as it doesn't start to cake up or look heavy. You also shouldn't be put off by the glitter, it isn't obvious or really sparkly on your face. I tend to notice on my hand after I have used it and later in the day after it has started to wear off a little but to be honest I really quite like it. I have combination to dry skin and I have no problems with this at all, it doesn't at any point through the day start to look oily either, even around my nose where I do get oily so I would say its suitable for all skin types. I can say I will definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out, and the good thing is its only around £8.99 so it is very good value for money. That turned into a mini review but never mind lol.

The next thing is Sally Hansen Miracle Cure for severe problem nails. I have AWFUL nails, really...they are very bad. They are thin and they chip, flake and peel away and there seems to be nothing I can do to stop it. I had given up on trying to wear nail polish because I thought "what's the point" until my fiance bought me this stuff. 

I have been using it for around 6 weeks now and I can say without any doubt this stuff definitely makes my nails feel stronger but as of yet it hasn't managed to stop them peeling away. What it has done however is make them strong enough so that they can grow and I can now happily wear nail polish...woooohooooo!

Which leads me to number 3 on my list of favourites, my first ever QVC purchase! I cant remember exactly when I ordered this but it was such a great buy. It was a set of 7 Nails Inc nail polishes, which for those of you who know are around £11 a time. Well it was a special buy for that day and I got all 7 for £25! That is a great saving and I have been wearing them all through August, especially the pale blue sprinkles one and Porchester Square, that's the lovely nude colour.

I am definitely now a QVC fan after that great buy - how can you not love a bargain like that hehe

Well that is just 3 of the things I have been using the most throughout this month and enjoying, I hope you enjoyed this longer than intended post and I would love to hear from anyone else who has tried any of these items and what they think of them. I enjoyed writing this and it was fun to do so I might do one for the end of each month, what do you think??

From the Beginning

Good evening everyone!
I am very excited because I have finally decided to start my own blog. I have wanted to have my own little bit of space online for a while now where I could chat about all things fashion and beauty, and any other interesting little things that happen in life. I hope anyone who stumbles upon my little blog will enjoy reading my ramblings and feel welcome to comment or send me a message :)
