August In Review

Thursday, September 06, 2018

August has been a long month. I'm not even sure why, but it really does feel like ages since the start of it, to the point that when I started writing this I couldn't even remember what I was loving at the start of the month.


As I mentioned in my Revolution first impressions, I fell in love with the Makeup Revolution X Soph lipstick in the shade Fudge, and have been loving it ever since. It is not only a gorgeous brown nude but has the loveliest creamy formula that feels amazing and actually lasts longer than you would expect!


Getting Amazon Prime this month I settled into catching up with The Bold Type. I wrote a few months ago about how much I loved the first season, so I was, of course, excited to watch the next instalment. I did find that the show, about three girls working for a magazine called Scarlett, was so cringe at times, but I still found it so addictive, possibly because the magazine industry is a dream for me to work in. However I ended up finding that Sutton was the only character of the three girls I actually liked, Jane and Kat got super irritating and I disagreed with the girls' decisions many a time.


I went to see Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! at the start of the month which was so much fun, it was really a feel-good film that guarantees laughter. Believe it or not, I prefer it over the first one by a lot, and have had the soundtrack on repeat the past month.

I also went to see Christopher Robin, the new Disney about Winnie The Pooh and it was such an adorable film, I really loved it. There were so many heartwarming scenes - for me it doesn't get any better than Winnie The Pooh being desperate for a red balloon, and then the rest of the film Christopher Robin reminding him there is more to life than balloons, with Pooh seeming rather confused by this statement. Such a cute film that I really recommend.


Going to Friendsfest was definitely one of the most fun things I did this August. As a huge lover of Friends, it would come as no surprise that I made sure to get tickets to Friendsfest this year and I would definitely recommend visiting if you are as big of a fan as I am, the memorabilia they have from the show such as props the cast actually used were amazing.

Chillin' in Mon's kitchen! Exploring the Friends' apartments was such an amazing experience. Monica's was my favourite for photo opportunities as it is so iconic but my personal favourite was Joey & Chandler's - there was even a Hugsy to cuddle!

What have you been up to this month?
