Favourites | August 2015

The beginning of September means ... it's monthly favourites time! Here are all of the things I have been liking, using or enjoying during the month of August.

The Beauty Blender

When all of the beauty bloggers and vloggers started using the Beauty Blender make up sponge last year I really didn't see what all of the fuss was about and I never thought to even try it. However, I recently bought one for myself as I saw it on offer and I can honestly say that it has changed the way I apply foundation! I think it's a great product and you can really tell the difference when blending your foundation and bases. It's definitely worth a try!

The Balm 'Balm Shelter' tinted moisturiser

This is great for those days that you don't want to use a foundation as your base as it just gives you an even finish. It's not greasy either which is great.

Lush bath bombs

I have always been a fan of Lush bath bombs as a bath time treat! My favourite is the classic 'sex bomb' which turns your bath water pink and smells divine. I like having a bath to relax after a long day.

Vaseline Spray and Go moisturiser

This is great if you are a lazy moisturiser like me as you simply need to spray the product on your body and quickly rub it in. I think the Vaseline Spray and Go moisturiser will be my body moisturiser from now on as it's not greasy at all and dries really quickly.

Yo Sushi

I love sushi and for some reason I have been twice in this month which must mean I am loving it a lot at the moment! My personal favourite dishes are the avocado maki, cucumber maki and chicken katsu curry.

Made in Chelsea LA

It's my guilty pleasure but I do love Made in Chelsea and even more so this month as the cast are in LA for the whole summer! It has inspired me to visit LA some time soon!

Lily Pebbles Vlogs

Lily Pebbles is one of my favourite vloggers and I really enjoy watching her weekly vlogs as she is so down to earth, you can really relate to her and I love how she shares the different things she does each week from restaurants she went to and clothes she bought.

Cooking Fever app game

I saw my cousin playing the 'Cooking Fever' game and it looked so cool and addictive so I downloaded it for myself and I haven't been able to stop playing it since!

Harrods tea bags

As a regular morning tea drinker I decided to give the Harrods Ceylon tea bags a try and they taste great.

What have your August favourites been?

Rituals City Spa

Peace and tranquillity can be found in even the most busiest of places. I recently visited one of the Rituals City Spas for a few hours of relaxation and some pampering. It is often thought that you need to go somewhere rural or in the countryside to find a spa where you can relax, unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, I recently discovered that Rituals have their own City Spas in selected stores. You can enjoy spa treatments and relaxation in one of the selected Rituals stores. I visited the Leicester Highcross Rituals City Spa and had a lovely few hours of relaxation and treatments.

I was first treated to a manicure with a shape and polish. My hands were left feeling smooth and soft and the nail polish I chose was in the shade Ruby Red. My therapist then showed me the relaxation and treatment room where I relaxed on an elevated chair and enjoyed a facial. The products used were the Sensational Soft Cleanser, Brightening Exfoliator and Intensive Moisturising Mask. The facial was really beneficial for my skin and left me feeling refreshed and relaxed. The mask is non-drying and leaves your skin feeling moisturised. A refreshing spray 'Happy Mist' was used at the end of my treatment and this is also great for using at home and even on your pillow at night.

I ended my visit to the Rituals City Spa by purchasing a few products to try myself at home. I treated myself to some shampoo, body wash and also a face mask which was used during my facial (see below).
Visit for a list of city spas and where you can also buy their products.
