August Favourites

Just like July, August is absolutely flying by. I’ve been on two fantastic holidays and it was my birthday last week! So whilst I’ve not got many beauty favourites this month, I have got lots of activity based ones instead.


As I mentioned in my birthday post last week, I went on holiday to Slovenia! Holidays are my highlights of each year, let alone month and Slovenia was beautiful. I stayed in the romantic lake side town of Bled for my birthday, before moving on to Slovenia’s capital city Ljubljana. I’ll be doing a full series of posts on what I got up to each day in the next couple of weeks. 

My Birthday!

As I mentioned above, I was on holiday in Slovenia for my birthday. I did lots of romantic activities with my partner on the day and was spoiled with presents from everyone. I’ll be writing a full post on what I got up to in my Slovenia holiday series and I’ll also be doing a post about what gifts I got.


Way back at the start of the month, I went on a short break with my family and partner to Caister, which is a British seaside resort. The weather was great and it was a lovely little break away.

Hello Kitty Afternoon Tea

I love going for afternoon tea and I particularly loved this super fun and cute, Hello Kitty themed one in London. Not only was it designed wonderfully, but the food was absolutely delicious too.

Essence The Gel Nail Polish in Lucky

In my most recent post, I wrote about how much I love this nail polish. Not only is it super affordable, but the hot pink colour of this is beautiful and it’s long wearing too!

OPI Nail Polish in Princesses Rule

As I mentioned in my Holiday Haul post, I picked up a couple of OPI nail polishes on my way to Malta last month. I didn’t have much time, but this sparkly, baby pink shade caught my eye. I wore this to the Hello Kitty Afternoon Tea and it’s a really pretty, girly polish with good wear time. I’ll be doing a full post on this nail polish soon. 

So that’s my August favourites. Let me know what you’ve been loving lately.

  1. Your trip to Slovenia sounds (and looks) like it was a lot of fun – can’t wait to read more about it! Your birthday cake looks delicious, what flavour was it? I’m reading Me Before You at the moment, I purchased the book a couple of months ago but I’m not very far through it yet haha xx

    1. It was lovely. I’ve got lots of pictures and things to post about Slovenia☺ I had two birthday cakes, this was a traditional one for the area of Bled. So it’s custard, cream and sugary pastry. Haha sounds like me. I sadly never get much time to read books. I like what I’ve read of it so far though x

  2. Loved this post! I HAVE to buy that Nail polish! Please tell me it’s name! And what a great Birthday Month you are having! That’s right I said Birthday Month! I also have an August Birthday, so I claim the entire month as mine! My boys are growing tired of it, but I still use it as an excuse for everything! 🙂
