August went by in a blink and we're halfway through September already. I don't know where this year's going but it is going by fast! Before I just completely forget about my August favourites at all I decided to quickly write up this post! I was away on holiday most of August, so I only had limited stuff with me while I was away, so these might have been shown in previous five favourites posts already.

The first thing I've been loving in August and am in fact still loving is the L'oreal extraordinary oil. This kinda is a serum for your face and I absolutely love this. I used this while I was away on holiday and really noticed how dry my skin was feeling because of the flight. So when I used this I started seeing a difference the next morning. I love how it gives me some extra moisture without making it too oily which can lead to breakouts.

Next is my Canon 50 MM F1.8 lens. I don't know why I did not buy this lens before, but man I am in love. I love the quality of the photos I took with this lens.

I had to bring my next favourite with me on holiday. This book called Read This If You Want To Take Great Photographs by Henry Carroll. This book has been in favourites before, but I usually read just one chapter of this book. During my holiday I finally read the whole book and I felt so inspired to take all these photographs while I was way on holiday.

This next favourite is something I bought while I was away on holiday. I completely forgot to bring any lipsticks with me so I went out and had a little browse in a beauty store. I stumbled upon this Bourjous Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in colour 7 Nude-ish. I love this colour as it's kinda the perfect nude for me, but it's matte! Pretty perfect if you ask me!

My last favourite are these leather espadrilles from Sacha. I have worn them non-stop when I was away on holiday and didn't feel like wearing my Birkenstocks. They are so comfortable due to their rubber sole and I was after a pair of leather espadrilles ever since the beginning of this year. So when I stumbled upon these I knew I would wear them pretty much all summer.

So that's what I have been loving during August. I would love to know if you have any recommendations I should check out and what you have been loving during August.


  1. Dat boek zou ik ook wel willen hebben, lijkt me super! En die lens heb ik ook, echt gelijk zo'n enorme verbetering in kwaliteit:)

  2. Die lens is echt zo fijn! Maakt inderdaad prachtige foto's. Dat boek lijkt me ook leuk, zag hem al een aantal keer voorbij komen maar nog nooit gekocht. Misschien maar eens doen :)
