Monthly Faves & A Giveaway.

Let's just take a minute, to get over the fact it is now AUGUST! We're in the eighth month of 2018. To me, that is just crazy. I saw it time and time again, but this year really has flown by. How are we in August already? August is an exciting month, I'm off to Zante in just under three weeks! I cannot wait. I've been loving a variety of things this month, I don't just want to include beauty bits, I want to include random bits too. So here are my monthly faves.
The only primer I've used this month, I won't go on too much about it as I reviewed it on my blog earlier this month (you can read that, here). It's such an hydrated primer, makes your makeup last all day and has become such a staple in my collection. Yes, it's pricey but I wouldn't be without it now. 
Zoella Beauty is something I've never really delved into. With any of her releases I find they are aimed at her much younger audience, not that theres anything wrong with that. It's just my opinion, however, when I saw her latest range 'Splash Botanics' I was very intrigued. When I saw the new products which were released I was really excited about the lip oil. I am such a fan of lip oils and this one does not disappoint. It keeps my lips hydrated and feeling super soft. It smells amazing too. 
If you didn't already know, I recently became a #babesofglory. So every so often Soap & Glory send me products to try. Recently I got a makeup bag full of products to try and inside was this lipstick. I've never tried a Soap & Glory lipstick so I was excited to give it a try. I quickly became obsessed and it's all I've worn since I've got it. It's in the shade 'super nude' and it's bloody gorgeous. 
Probably my most favourite thing from this month. I first got this lashes for Christmas from my Dad. They had been in my collection for over 6 months before I decided to try them. Bad I know but now I have tried them, I can't live without them. Whenever I've worn lashes this month, it's been these and I've purchased two more sets. The lashes are just beautiful, so fluttery, so fluffy and last such a long time. I'm obsessed with them. I can't see me wearing any other lashes now, ever. 
A little bit random, but, I honestly love it. Usually I am a radox kind of gal, but I was intrigued by this. When I had a 'sniff' of this in Superdrug, I fell in love. It smells so fresh, so clean and I loved the packaging too. When I got home and tried it, I was amazed at how many bubbles it created. I only added a tiny amount and my bath was full of bubbles. 
Until recently, I'd only ever shaved my legs. My life has now been changed forever, thanks to this little gadget. I won't lie, it hurts to start with. I compare it to the pain of a tattoo but I love it. My legs have never felt so smooth and I don't have to shave them every day like I used to. I can currently go about two weeks without having to epilate them again. 

Piercings | Price Varies.
I recently got two piercings, the top of my ear and also my tragus. Both were random, spur of the moment but I quickly became obsessed with them. I got both done on the same ear and I honestly love how they both look. I cannot wait to change the earrings/bars and mix things up!

Leopard Print Wooden Block Heels | £19.99
I bought these shoes to add a little bit of something to an all black outfit. They are just beautiful. They are the perfect height too and do not hurt my feet at all. I've worn them a tonne this month and I recommend them to so many people. 

I've been after a little bag for a while now and when I saw this one in New Look, I quickly fell in love. I've used it for night outs, day to day and I might take it to Zante with me too. It's big enough to fit my purse, phone, keys and a few makeup bits too. I just wish it had a zip!

Love Island | ITV or Netflix.
Love Island has now come to an end. I am kind of glad to be fair. Don't get me wrong, I love Love Island, I watch it religiously. I just found this season to be a little boring! Luckily for me, I spotted that season one and two had been added to Netflix so I've also been binge watching those too! Season Two is the reason Love Island made it to my favourites. It's been the best season by far!
