In a bid to keep my 'glow' and make sure I was prepped for every outfit-eventuality, I returned to these beauty best friends throughout August

I feel like August was a skin care success story - I've established a 'regime' (whoop! #grownup) that I'm very happy with, and it's incredibly good looking (endless Insta-opportunities)

It's that time of the month (in a good way) - time to reveal the beauty must-haves I've been turning to, to get me through four weeks of sweat and weddings.

I've may-de some a-may-zing discoveries this month... (see, SEE what I did there *grabs pun klaxon*) - not least, discovering just-the-right-sized cactus for my empty {Lion Candle} *smug*

March Favourites

I have somehow made it through another winter without bankruptcy-by-boredom. There is something about cold weather and zero sunshine that makes 'retail therapy' a necessity - I'm re-branding it 'buy to survive' - and survive, I, have *pats self on back*. Here are some things I've been a-buyin' and a-likin'.

September Favourites

Summer is so ovah − but that's okay, because it means I get to legitimately sing my favourite seasonal song: "Autumn days when the grass is je-well-ed" ("and the silk inside a chestnut shell"). It also means I get to wear sweaters, and re-watch Harry Potter films (because you can only watch Harry Potter when its dark outside, obvs). I know, I know. I'm very cool.

August Favourites

It's September which means it's (nearly Christmas) August Favourites time! It's been a month of experimentation (a family holiday in the Northumbrian wilderness leaves lots of scope for face mask application) - in which I've reacquainted myself with old flames, and fallen for some new(ish) things I can't believe I've been this long without...
