August Favourites

Welcome to my first ever monthly favourites post. I'm not committing to doing these every month, but there has been a few things which I have been really enjoying this month, so I want to witter on about them here, if that's okay with you of course.

Berry Smoothie

Homemade Smoothies

Recently I've been making a lot more of an effort to eat more fruit, as it's never been something I would snack on, always choosing chocolate instead. To help me with this my sister got me addicted to these, they're so good and taste almost like ice cream, but with none of the guilt! I buy frozen berries from Sainsburys and put them in the blender with 2 bananas, milk and yoghurt and it always satisfies my sweet cravings. They're brilliant for using up fruit which is going a bit past it's best as well.

WeightWatchers app, Scales and Measuring tape

Being back on WeightWatchers

I originally joined WeightWatchers back in January last year, and managed to lose 2 stone and two dress sizes in the space of 6 months. I stopped it when I moved out of my flat, and managed to kind of keep most of it off. However, I weighed myself a few weeks ago and got a big shock, so I have rejoined for 3 months to hopefully get me back down to the weight I was last year, and maybe even lose a bit more? I love being on WeightWatchers because I never feel guilty about eating treats when they are in my points for the day or week, and I find it very easy to stick to and I get amazing results. I lost 5lb in my first week this time, and have been losing a steady amount every week since.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch Complete Box Set

Sabrina The Teenage Witch Box Set

I know I've mentioned this before, but I loved Sabrina when I was younger, I watched it all the time, and even bought the magazines. Does anyone else remember the blue hair mascara as the free gift? After moaning for years that it should come out as a box set, the day I saw it, it was immediately in my Amazon basket! I'm up to season 5 now in my watch through, and I still want my very own Salem the cat. He is a lot funnier and more sarcastic to me now that I'm older. Anyone else love this show as much as me?

Oriflame The One Volume Blast Mascara

Oriflame Volume Blast Mascara

I got this in my goody bag from the Oriflame Event I went to back in May, and since switching to wearing mascara instead of eyeliner, I have worn it faithfully every day since. It doesn't make my eyelashes itch like some mascaras do, and it gives me a beautiful wide awake look, with no clumping and lots of length and volume. I am a complete convert to their mascaras and I will be repurchasing it once it runs out!



This is one of those things you hear a lot of hype about, but you just dismiss as something you wouldn't like straight away based on the few things you hear. Rich was intrigued as to what it was like though and we wound up watching one of Alfie's Minecraft videos, then another, and another and another. Rich bought the game on his PC and we have been playing it almost non-stop since. It is so addictive, and really appeals to the Sims player in me, creating and crafting things but the combat side of it scares the living daylights out of me. I have physically jumped and screamed so often when things have tried to kill me that I will now only go into darkened areas with Rich sat next to me because I get so scared.

That's it for my August favourites, I hope you have enjoyed this different style of post from me, and please let me know if you have tried or like any of the things in the list by commenting down below or tweeting me!

  1. Well done on the weight loss! I loved Sabrina when I was younger. I never bought the magazines but owned a fair bit of hair mascara and hair glitter - both of which were absolutely essential school-disco wear :p xxx

  2. I love home made smoothies! And I remember how my sister and I used to watch Sabrina! We loved it, I still do actually!
