August Favourites

This month has been absolutely beautiful and summer finally arrived even to Finland. Better late than never eh?

August was the last month of my summer holiday, which always seems to end too early, don't you think? I liked having a lot of time to myself, I enjoyed my part-time job a lot, I discovered new places to eat and found a new favourite snack (it's even a teeny tiny bit healthy)! I liked many things in August and I just absolutely must expand my favourites from beauty pieces to other random things. But I'll start with the beauty related products.

My go to -eyeshadow in August was definitely Backstage by Rimmel. It's a beautiful, shimmery and metallic shade. Perfect for those days when you feel gold is a bit too warm. It's easy to apply and lasts really long.

The lipstick, which I used the most this month was definitely another amazing product from Rimmel. It is the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 101. It's a perfect matte, pinky nude and I really love the scent of it! 

While we visited New York I bought a very special mascara and have been loving it ever since. Benefit's Roller Lash has been raved about before, and I'm just going to have to join the crowd. It's an amazing product with a really pretty finish on your eyelashes. 

And finally, I just must mention, or re-mention to be precise, a skincare product. I have brought this product up before on my Skincare Sunday -video, so you might have already heard me love it to bits. It's the Loccitane Cleansing Milk. I still can't believe how soft it leaves my skin after washing my makeup off in the evenings.

And those are all my favourite beauty products from August. The random things I might not actually own, so I'm just going to make a short list of them.

First of all, Game of Thrones. I know I'm late with this but oh my gosh, how addictive can a TV series be? I can't even watch all of the scenes because they're just too violent, and yet I'm totally hooked. I think we watched all five seasons with my hubby at the beginning of August in like two weeks. We went a bit crazy, I'll admit that. 

Secondly, Frozen Yogurt. Can somebody explain to me, why I hadn't tried this delicacy before? Personally, I think it beats many ice creams. And that's saying a lot, because I do love my ice creams too. But frozen yogurt tastes more fresh. Mmmmm.....

Thirdly, this is a bit boring, but water! I have really been investing in drinking more water and believe I have achieved it (I definitely pop to the ladies a lot more often...sorry, TMI). I find drinking water quite hard actually. I very often even eat my lunch and dinner without any kind of liquid. After a session at the gym or a fitness class I might sip a bit of water and feel a bit drowsy later in the day. But after starting my little drink more water -project I've had no such problems. Even my skin is thanking me. Woop woop! 

August was awesome. I hope September is just as good!
