august favourites

Where has the summer gone? 
Today is the 1st of September. I'm writing about my August favourites. ALREADY. I go back to school in only two days! The summer has been a complete blur. What have I been enjoying throughout it?

Beauty - MAC Lipstick in Patisserie
Beauty wise, I have been loving my MAC lipstick in the shade Patisserie. I bought it at the end of last month and how could I not include it in this month's favourites? It is such a beautiful lipstick shade, feels so good on my lips and lasts a long time too!

Ray-Ban Sunglasses
I have also loved my new Ray-Ban sunglasses I bought on holiday. I love the style of them - my other sunglasses are Wayfarers, but these are the Rayban Erika style. They are more rounded than Wayfarers and I really like that. I have really enjoyed wearing them whilst I was on holiday, and also the ocassional sunny day in England too.

App - QuizUp
I actually have an app favourite this month, and it is the game QuizUp. I first saw this app in a video by Jim Chapman and Tanya Burr. The game looked really fun so I decided to give it a go myself. As the title of the app suggests, it is a quiz game. There are a huge variety of categories, from films, music and logos (I personally play the One Direction quiz the most!). You can play againist friends or the app selects a random opponent for you. I think QuizUp is really addictive and lots of fun!

Music - McBusted
My music favourite has to be McBusted. This month I saw them live and was lucky enough to be at the barrier, so close to the boys! I have already made a whole blogpost about my experience here so I won't ramble on about it too much, but it is certainly an experience I won't forget in a hurry!

Drag Me Down - One Direction
I have also been loving One Direction's new single Drag Me Down this month! I'm going to see them in October, just over a month away now (it feels so crazy saying that!) so no doubt you'll hear about their concert then. I love the new sound of Drag Me Down and cannot wait for the album!

Book - The Dinosaur That Pooped The Bed
I've also already talked about my book favourites in my previous blogpost, three fiction books I've read this summer, however I have a special mention for The Dinosaur That Pooped The Bed, the fourth story in the children's book series by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter.

I know, this is not my usual choice of book, but it is wrote by half of my favourite band McFly! They did a book signing in Manchester last Friday, the day after the release of the new book, and I was lucky enough to go and meet them! Only 20 days after I saw them front row in concert, I met Tom and Dougie themselves, which I never expected would happen! They were lovely people and I had the best day, even though we had to queue for over 3 hours!

Let me know your favourites in the comments below! I'm also hoping to revamp my blog a little bit soon so stay tuned for that!

    1. Thanks! I absolutely love that shade, such a nice pinky nude!x

  5. I just downloaded the QuizUp app and now I can't stop playing it even though I keep losing haha. I used to play a similar game called trivia crack but that one is more general questions under like 6 categories I think. You're so luck that you get to meet so many of your favorite bands :D I can't wait to hear all about the 1D concert!

    1. Yay, I hope you enjoy it! I also used to play trivia crack but I hardly ever knew the answers haha. Thank you so much, I can't believe how lucky I've been this year!x

    2. haha same i get so stressed out with being timed which results in me losing most of the games but it's still so fun haha. By the way, I LOVE love love the new layout! :D <3

  6. It's crazy how quickly this summer has gone! I lovveee that Mac lipstick so much, it's such a pretty shade.
