5 From This Month | August

Hello Freckles 5 From This Month August
Time for my top picks from this month.

I finally bought myself a new purse, after having my current Topshop studded one for possibly 3-4 years? As a little 'new job treat' I went for this Kate Spade one which is so soft and has plenty of compartments for all my loyalty cards. Slight downside; it doesn't fit in my new Kate Spade bag (another new job treat - oops) but never mind!

Essie Splash of Grenadine has been my go-to nail varnish this month. It's just such a lovely shade and I find two coats of this lasts really well too. I hope they don't discontinue it or I'll have to stock up!

I've had three trips to Edinburgh this month (I'm currently still there - the power of scheduling posts in advance ey!) and spent more time there than at work! I've been up to visit the zoo, with my sister and now for the international tv festival. I'm even planning to go back in November when the Christmas lights are up and the food markets are around.

Other highlights from this month include; peanut butter and nutella ice cream at Whitley Bay, a trip to Flamingo Land, Longhorns Sunday Lunch, pressing a new pb in the gym (yep, I'm one of those people who likes to talk about gym progress, I'm slowly getting defined triceps!) asking a random man in the street to take an instax photo of Lucy and I and having the camera switched off so it didn't work first time, oops.

What's been the best part of August for you?

    1. It's even better knowing I bought it myself and I kinda earned it. Ooh you should, they're really not that expensive anymore and there's so many more colours available - I like the raspberry pink and the turquoise ones - not that I need to buy another! x
