Life | August Favourites

Helloooo September!!!
Wow! September already? Where did last month go?! It was a crazy month for me. I had my little man on the 24th, and before that I was pretty much waiting for his arrival, too heavily pregnant to do anything!

So these were some of my favourites from August...


Skincare Product of the Month...
As I neared the end of my pregnancy, I reintroduced one of my favourite skincare products ever, Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant* (£41.30). It instantly makes my skin look and feel fresher and smoother, which is a big help dealing with these sleepless nights!! :)

Haircare Product of the Month...
We currently don't have a shower, so washing my hair in the bath, heavily pregnant, was a massive effort! So Batiste Dry Shampoo (£2.99/Boots) was my best friend this month!!

MakeUp Product of the Month...
This month my favourite makeup product has to be my trusty foundation, MAC Studio Sculpt (£25.00), simply for making my skin look half decent through this tiring month. :)

Bath/Body Product of the Month...
I've been using my creamy TheBodyShop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream (£4.00) a lot this month, it's so creamy and smells yum! Definitely one of my favourites!!

Fragrance of the Month...
So this is going to sound a bit strange to some, but you know that newborn baby smell? Its amazing right? I can't stop sniffing my baby boy he's just delish!! :)

Item of Clothing of the Month...
Towards the end of the pregnancy I was just huge and uncomfortable. So having my NewLook Maternity Leggings (£14.99) were a godsend as they were super comfy! But I'm so glad to be getting out of maternity wear now! :)

Home Product of the Month...
It has to be the trusty Febreeze Multi purpose Fragrance Spray (£3.00/ASDA). It quickly eliminates nasty odours and freshens up fabrics. Bradley was sick during the night one night and Febreeze really helped get rid of the smell.

Read of the Month...
To be honest, I didn't do much reading this month.

Music of the Month...
I'm in love with a few of the tracks from Ed Sheeran's latest album! Photograph and Tenerife Sea are fab songs!

TV of the Month...
The last few weeks of my pregnancy were mainly spent sat watching box sets on Sky Demand, I really got into Once Upon A Time.

Film of the Month...
The 3 of us [James, Bradley & I] snuggled up to watch The Amazing Spiderman 2 earlier this month. I didn't think I'd enjoy it so much but I thought it was fab!! :)

Day Trip/Night Out of the Month...
didn't get out much during August. I was suffering pretty bad with my SPD so couldn't walk properly, I was pretty much housebound, only going out for appointments and shopping trips!

  1. Congratulations on the birth of your wee baby, what a little cutie! You are right about the new baby smell, it really is the best!
    You can't beat a pair of maternity leggings especially during the last few weeks. If I'm honest, I continued to wear maternity for ages after, just because it was so comfortable! x

    1. Thank you :)
