☼ Summer Favourites (June - August) ☼

Summer's officially over.

But at least there's one thing good; it's time for Summer Favourites! Wooop!
I'm sorry I haven't been doing *proper* monthly favourites; I'm going get back on track again with September favourites at the end of this month!

But for now enjoy my last Summer post (D:)!

Coming soon: What's in my School Bag???


Make up: 

(A lot of these products have been reviewed already; click the links below to see the reviews! Warning: there are a lot of lip products in this favourites!)

Models Own Make Up Sponge
I love this! It's very good for blending my concealer; super practical! Handy if you don't want to get your fingers messy and is sometimes good for blending foundation/BB cream.

Sugarbomb Lipgloss by Benfit
I got this with my Sugarlicious set at Christmas and it's gorgeous! It's super shiny and a lovely nude colour. It smells divine! I love to apply this when I have heavy eye make up.


Victoria's Secret body spray in Pure Daydream
This smells so good! The name suits it perfectly! It's such a dreamy scent. The only problem is that it's running out quite quickly... Probably because it's a travel size though. 
This was my summer scent; if I spay it now, it reminds me of Summer 2013. That's what I love a about fragrances; they keep memories.

Nail Polish:


Hollister Body and Hand cream in Laguna beach
This smells like heaven in a tube. Honestly.
I love to use this for my hands, and I really want to get the body spray version of this. I got it for my birthday from friends and I am in
LOVE with it!

Simple Refreshing Shower Gel
This very soothing to me! It is what it is: refreshing. And it's supposed to cleanse and purify; I think it might have done so! Another job 
well done Simple.


Trevor Sorbie Salt Texture Spray
This spray is supposed to create relaxed, tousled waves with a matte texture. I think it's alright; it says to apply on damp hair, and then in the salon tip, it's say to apply on dry hair... ??? Ah well. It works fine but occasionally tends to be sticky, or causes tangles. I'm not sure if I'd buy any texture spray again... I find them useless sometimes, but they can be fun to use to jazz up a ponytail.

Pantene Over night Nourishing Spray
This is what it is: nourishing!
As you saw in my GRWM: First day of School post, I sprayed this on my plaits to enhance the curls for the next day, and it really works! It makes my hair incredibly soft.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original
Surprise surprise.
Batiste is in my favourites once agiain.
You know the drill... I love to use this when I don't wash my hair but I still want it to feel clean and fresh. This is the BEST.

Oh. My. Freaking. God.
No I don't have an addiction *cough cough*.
The amount of magazines you can buy in three months eh?
I have thoroughly, without doubt, loved each and every issue.
I don't think I really need to review every single issue. They were literally all brilliant.You can never have enough, ok?!


Four and Children and It by Jacqueline Wilson
Definitely not my favourite book by Jackie (Hetty Feather series wins, by miles), but I still really enjoyed this. I loved the way she was inspired by another book to write this. It's a super strange plot, but interesting. I adored Maudie in this!

Ratburger by David Walliams
I read Billionaire Boy last year by the same author and thought it was pretty funny, and I got this for Christmas. It's unique, of course funny and, occasionally, kind of gross. But it was good to read; you don't have to read serious all the time, right?

The Fault in our Stars by John Green
This is just epic.
This is a beautifl story, filled with super characters. You just have to, and I mean, HAVE TO, read this! Seriuosly! You will laugh and you will cry. Honestly! Read it. Now!!!!
Green is a genius!
(Do not read if younger than 12, I'm warning you!)

Coco Caramel by Cathy Cassidy
I am in love with the Chocolate Box girls series. It' sugary sweet and full of drama. The sisters are just to die for. I love Skye the best. If you're a real girly-girl, then this is a must read.

The Mortal Instruments Book One: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Unless you're asleep, you must have heard about this new movie that has been out recently. It was originally a book. I saw the film, and it was super good, but the book is 100000X BETTER! I am on the second book of the series now and it is just... ahh can't think of any words! It's just well, outsanding, glittering, excellent and MAGNIFICNET! Did I say I couldn't think of any words? That was the past.
Please if you have read this tell me. SHADOWHUNTERS UNITE!

Monsters University is adorbs!
This is such a great family movie. I saw it with my cousins. It's so funny! You must see it!!


Dippin' Dots
I ate this loads while in the States. They are so yummy! It's like ice cream, but in dots, if that makes sense. Vanilla was my go to flavour. Not available in Ireland. :( Come to Ireland, Dippin' Dots!

Cookie Dough
This is super good! One of my favourite ice creams. 
Chunks of cookie dough = heaven.

Mini Marshmallows from Aldi
Once you're in, you're in! These are soooo addicting; amazingly tasty!
