August Favorites

These have been my favourite products in the month of August. 
From left to right the Body Shops Aloe Eye Defence which has made putting on under eye concealer a lot easier and Urban Decay's eyeliner in Zero which I love applying to my water line to define my eyes. For lips I've been loving CoverGirls Outlast lip stain in the colour 400 I love this cause it last for a while but doesn't dry out my lips, another CoverGirl product but this one being a gloss/balm in the colour Sandstone this is a perfect creamy pink sparkly colour, and finally an EOS lip balm in Honey Suckle which great for lots of moisture. A face product that has been really useful is OXY's face cleansing pads which are great for removing oil from your face. That's it for my favourites hope you enjoyed.

Wonderful Water

Lately I've been really into Pinterest. I saw a cool picture of some fancy looking water on a couple of boards so I decided to make it. I used 4 cucumber slices, half a lemon cut into wedges (slices would look cooler but I could not manage cutting the slices), and 10 mint leaves. After letting it sit for a bit it ended up tasting great!
It's definitely more exciting than plain water but more healthy than pop and stuff.

Project Pointless

I'm always in awe of the unpractical ideas presented in magazines for home decor. Things like leaving shelves empty, stacking empty antique suit cases, and finally having random books lying around when you have a book shelf. While I've decided to take a go at one of those unpractical ideas and stack some books even though I still have room on my book shelf. 
I'm actually quite enjoying the look. We'll have to wait and see though cause I'll get tired of moving everything off of the books when I want to read them, and then putting everything back.

Peach Passion

This is such a raved about product that when I put it on I was expecting fireworks to start exploding, but no such thing seemed to occur. It does have a great texture and slight fragrance of vanilla but it's the colour I wasn't too fond of. The colour looks a) nothing like a peach (that's alright though) and b) nothing like the lid which is misleading. The colour, although not what I thought it would be, lasts for a long time without drying out my lips.

DIY: Transforming A Top

These are some really cool DIY videos that I've come across. These two ideas are great for transforming a top that needs some revamping. I've tried out the idea in the second video and it actually worked out really well!

Just A Jar

Recently my favourite way to store anything is in a jar. It's two in one cause you get to eat whatever is in the jar and then you can put stuff in it. It's kinda a DIY, but you need no artistic talent! Even thought it's just a jar I think it makes anything inside it look really cool.

Summer Skin Care

These are a few of my favourite summer skin care products. 
The Ombrelle sunscreen is especially made for the face so the texture is great but you can also use it on the rest of your body too. This is good 'cause then you never have to feel greasy. 
Aloe Caring Body Balm by The Body Shop is probably my favourite. It heals sunburns because of the aloe!  My sister used it when she got a bad sunburn and said that it cooled it and helped heal it.
Spectro's moisturizer for acne prone skin is a product I only just started using this month. I love it because like the Ombrelle sunscreen there is no oily residue left behind and it treats acne. I enjoy using this after I swim in a pool 'cause chemicals in pools tend to dry out my face.

My pets seemed to be quite interested in these products too.

I finally got Pinterest! I know I'm a bit behind and I have know idea why I didn't get it until now because it's amazing. Basically you make collections(boards) of photos you can use your own or use(pin) other peoples photos to your board. It's great to collect inspiration and save a lot of photos without saving them all to your computer. Here is the link to my Pinterest here.
