August Favourites

Here's a few things I've been loving this past month!

First up is the Rimmel London Wonder'Full Mascara. I've wrote a review on this mascara a while back and a few months later it is still my favourite. It's brilliant for lengthening your lashes but the thing I love most is the argon oil which is infused into the product, I swear my bottom lashes have grown since using this, plus they feel a lot healthier - no idea how to describe that any better! But they just feel fuller and better since using the mascara. Such a brilliant buy.
Next up, 1881 by Cerruti. I love this perfume, I wore it last spring A LOT, and it was during my first trimester of being pregnant, recently I've started wearing it more often. I have fallen in love with it all over again. Plus it's not overly expensive, which is a huge bonus.

I've recently started reading 'Dream a little dream' by Giovanna Fletcher and I can't say much more other than I love it! I'm a massive fan of Giovanna - along with her husband Tom from Mcfly (and McBusted) and I love all of her books so far. I don't read as often as I used to because being a single parent I barely have a moment to myself, but I just love this book. I started reading it only a few days ago and within one sitting I had read 100 pages - I didn't even realise I was enjoying it that much.

Another brilliant item I've loved this month is the Linx windows tablet. My laptop sadly ended it's life the other day, and I've had nearly a year of having a laptop with no 't' or 'y' button - they are honestly so many words with them letters it's a joke. So I shopped about a little and found this catch on amazon, it was only £79.99 for a 8inch windows tablet - which is an amazing price considering what you pay for the "proper" windows tablet which are around £300-400 - and that's the cheapest I've found! I love this tablet, the price is amazing, it's easy to use, lots of space, runs the same as a windows tablet with a App Store and desktop view and perfect for blogging. Best buy of the year!

I aren't a big fan of clothes shopping at the moment, as I still haven't lost all of my baby weight and I'm learning to be comfortable of my current weight. However I've picked a few bits up lately that I love.
Firstly, a floral jacket from New Look. I love this as it is so lightweight and the fit and shape of it is really unique. It's 3/4 sleeved with cut outs at either side. It's perfect to jazz up any outfit, from a simple dress to jeans and a t shirt, and you can wear it smart or casual. Plus it was a bargain at under £20.
Another item I love is this little number, it's from Roxy originally however I picked it up at the car boot. I love summer purely for the fact of car boots and I have a big one near where I live which is perfect for picking bargains up. I love the colours and the fit of it, it's perfect for summer but brilliant now it's coming into Autumn weather with a pair of leggings or tights.

Finally, something I've recently found is a app called 'free prints.' I love getting my photos developed and this is brilliant. You can get up to 500  6x4 prints FREE per year, no commitments, plus postage is free for your first 10 prints and it's never more than £3.99 for postage (it's usually around £2 when I print mine)
Also if you use the code 'hmatthewman1' you can get an extra 5 photo prints!
