We’ve officially entered August and it’s a little bit scary how quickly 2015 is going. Favourite Posts are one of my favourite things to read ’cause I love seeing what other bloggers are loving. I’ve decided to join the craze and do a monthly favourites.
I got this in one of my Glossybox’s a few months ago. I’m not going to lie, when I read it was less than £4 from Boots I left it on the side and forgot about it and swooned after my friend’s fancy French cream. My skin used to be amazing and I barely ever broke out into spots. However, I had a dodgy facial and a crater the size of Italy erupted on my face (Thanks spa!). Since then, it’s been really dry and I’ve had loads and loads of break outs. So, I thought I had nothing to loose by using it as my other skincare products weren’t making my skin any better. The only thing I can say is why did I not do this sooner? This tub is a beast and I’m in love with it. I only use it as a night cream as it’s pretty thick but my skins improved drastically. It’s super soft, I’ve had no break outs *touch wood* and the best thing is, it’s cheap as chips. Astral do a lighter version which you could use as a day cream but I’m currently using some Aloe Vera stuff which is super good too. But seriously, there is a reason why your Mum and Nan use this stuff and that’s because it’s a skincare beast.
This has become my new favourite website and everyone in my life will be receiving their Christmas and Birthday presents off this website. I originally found them through this blog post on Handwritten Moments. When I had a browse through, I wanted all the things and nearly spent £150. Luckily for my bank account, I managed to reign myself in. What I love about it is that it’s just a little bit different. I generally hate crappy quotey art prints that tell me life is a journey and I need to relax in my bathroom. Like, I really really hate them and it makes me mad when I go round people’s houses and I see them. It’s probably up there with loud eaters. But Old English Company is different; it’s quirky, their prints are different and they do lime green prints which fit with my horrible coloured bedroom.
Bit of a weird one but me and Rufus passed our Kennel Club Puppy Foundation course this month. I’m a super proud dog momma because he’s really come on in the last few months and we’ve got a certificate. I feel like a Mum must feel when their kids first get a certificate as I full on strutted up to get it. I’m so proud of us! I’m going to miss seeing our doggy pals but we’ve signed up to another course starting at the end of August.
The Geek and I went on a date night to the cinema this week and went to see Inside Out. It’s not very often we go to the cinema as we have opposing tastes in films and it’s quite difficult to go in the week with Rufus. But, we decided to go and after our love for Big Hero Six, we fell in love with Inside Out. Although I don’t think it’s their best film I do think it is the cleverest one. It tells the story of Riley and her emotions; Joy, Anger, Worry, Disgust and Sadness who maintain Riley’s emotional state. However, with the family relocating to San Francisco, Sadness starts to play a bigger part in the story. It’s 100% worth the watch if you are looking for a film to see!
I’m hoping to do these every month. I get it’s not beauty as most peoples are but I’m not really a beauty kinda gal but these have been my favourite things this month, I hope you like it!
