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.
