These aren't really all that new and exciting anymore, but as I've been using them a lot recently, and have been considering adding more to my "collection", I thought I'd write another "post-hype" review. I like to do these sometimes as it's very easy to get swept up in all the raves and hypes on blogs and youtube, but then it's really after that's all passed you find out how you really feel about a product.
The empties I have to show for the month of August are quite impressive, if I can say so myself! There's quite a lot of products I've been trying to use up, or simply have been using, for a long time. I've also used up quite a few makeup items, which is always the most exciting of all!
After having almost the whole of July off work, August meant going back to work for me, and you'll notice a theme through this post of focusing on office-friendly items. The weather has been still nice here, but we had a week with all rain, giving a nice preview of what's to come. I personally love the fall and colder weather, so I quite loved getting my candles back out and making big pots of tea. Makeup-wise I haven't quite started wearing the darker fall colours yet. I am still doing the whole summery light and natural thing, but I am excited to get the vampy lip colours out soon. For now, here are my August favourites with a nice mix of summer and fall-esque things!
