Share the love – August

Share the love - August

August has been a very busy month. It’s one of those months that seems to have been long but it’s gone very quick at the same time.

We’re two days in to September already so I guess it’s time I share a few things I was loving in August. 

Music – After buying my Mum tickets to see Ed Sheeran for her birthday I discovered that I thought he was pretty darn awesome. My favourite Sheeran song at the moment is I See Fire.  

While on the way back from Belgium, I discovered that there’s a French version of Sing with a French rapper. 

Films – The Inbetweeners 2 finally arrived in August. I saw that film twice and it was hilarious both times. I wasn’t bowled over by the first film, and I know a lot of people who felt the same, but the second film is so much better. 

Tom bought me Despicable Me for my birthday and I loved it. I adore a good kids film and that is a bloody brilliant one. 

Books – August was so hectic that I only finished two books, one of which was Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. Burial Rites tells the story of Agnes Magnusdottir, who was the last woman to be executed in Iceland. 

Most people regard her as a cold, calculating murderer but as we don’t have all the information available on her life so after years and years of research Kent wrote Burial Rites which shines a more empathetic life on Magnus’ life and the circumstances she found herself in.

Food – I have harped on about this enough on my blog and in real life but that pizza I had in Germany <3 I’ve eaten pizza since then and not only was it disappointed but I’m pretty sure my jaw almost dislocated. That was clearly the German pizza trying to get me back for cheating on it. 

Beauty – Last week I bought Illamasqua’s lip colouring pencil in Spell and I love it! There will be a gushing review up within the next couple of weeks. It is a lovely pillarbox red shade and it lasts for hours. 

Blog – My favourite blogs are those which cover a variety of topics and don’t conform to beauty blogging stereotypes and that’s exactly what you get with Rinica Writes. I’ve been reading Rinica’s blog for about a year now, she always gives good advice, talks about a variety of topics and is such a nice, friendly person.

What did you love in August? 

  • I can’t believe you saw Ed Sheeran live (I’ll pretend not to be jealous!) So many people say he’s absolutely brilliant live. I’m so glad there’s someone out there who also preferred Inbetweeners 2 I found it way more funny laughed more through the second one than the first one. And thanks so much for featuring me really does mean a lot as keeping the variety is something I really want to carry on doing, its really nice to have people like you who’ve followed my blog from the start too 😀 xx

    • No problem at all Rinica, always enjoy reading your posts. It’s so nice to ready a beauty blog with variety, so keep doing your thing!

      I haven’t seen Ed Sheeran yet, I think it’s the end of October we go to see him. I’ve heard a lot of people say he’s really good live, I think it’s pretty much him, his guitar and a loop pedal so I’m looking forward to seeing that.

      I liked the first film but it wasn’t great but the second one was brilliant.

  • Oooo, I want to see the review for the lip coloring pencil! That sounds lovely. Thank you also for introducing me to Rinica Writes. Her blog looks adorable!


    • Rinica’s blog is brilliant! It’s so awesome, I’m not however looking forward to running around trying to find a pencil sharpener because you can never find one of those things.
