August Favourites

My favourites post this month is short and sweet, because I've had a really hard time thinking of what to write! Maybe because I've been busy, maybe because some of my July Favourites rolled over from last month? Who knows, but this post definitely won't take you long to read!

Laura's Travels - Iceland

Outside Blue Lagoon Spa

I've always wanted to visit Iceland. The whole idea of a volcanic island perched in the middle of the Atlantic has always interested me. This summer, I finally got to go.

Soap and Glory 'Sexy Mother Pucker' Matte Lipsticks

I've been on a hunt to buy some lipsticks for everyday use - I kept looking in my makeup drawers and only being able to find reds and berry tones. I've also been on the look out for matte lipsticks, because I wanted something a little bit more long lasting. I came across the Soap and Glory lipsticks, and knew that I had to try them. Plus, they were on buy one get one half price in Boots so I decided that was excuse enough...

Payday Wish List

I graduated from university in July 2014. Since then I've done odd jobs, work experience and internships. Nothing long term. Currently I have two intern/volunteer roles, and this month I also have plans to volunteer in a library. Busy busy, but not exactly much income. So I have a bit of an ongoing 'wish list' situation going on in my head. Hopefully soon I'll get a more permanent job and actually be able to afford some of them...

A Quick Trip to Ikea: Updating My Dresser

I don't have a desk or a dressing table; I keep all my make up, hair and beauty bits on top of my chest of drawers. One day I want a dressing table with a drawer in it, so that I can tuck things away. But for now, I have this weird setup.

This weekend I went to Ikea and picked up a couple of things to make it a bit more organised. To me, it still looks a bit cluttered, but at least everything has its place. And I only spent £6.50!
