I have been postponing this post for such a long time! I think it mainly has to do with the fact that I have to give in to summer being officially over. It's been discussed on the blog quite a few times already, but I feel like I have to say it again. I wasn't ready to say goodbye just yet. The rainy weather that we've had for the past week and sharing my August favourites with you, definitely makes it more real. Autumn is here.

ZARA Culottes
The first thing I will be mentioning in this post are these culottes by ZARA. I already posted this outfit on the blog about two weeks back (click here for the post), but I had to give these trousers another shoutout. These trousers have been my go-to pair of trousers during the month of August! I think I have worn them about twenty times since I've been back from my holiday too. Which means I basically have worn them way too much during the past month. Thankfully I bought myself another pair.  

Nivea After Sun Bronze
All the things mentioned in my August favourites, basically are very related to when I was away on holiday. The next thing I have been loving and using everyday in August is this Nivea After Sun Bronze. I love using Aftersun as it has such a cooling effect when you're in a hot country such as Spain. This has been my go-to product when I hopped out of the shower. I just lathered this on like crazy. I am pretty sure I went through two bottles of this stuff during the month of August. 

Aloe Pura Organic Aloe Vera Gel
Another purchase that I have made while I was away on holiday, is this Aloe Vera gel by Aloe Pura. My cousin told me she always likes to put aloe vera gel onto her pimples whenever she feels one coming up. So that's why I decided to grab myself a tube of nearly 100% aloe vera gel, so I could try her theory. And guess what? It actually works! I have noticed such a difference in my skin whenever I apply this.

I also used this aloe vera gel while I had a little bit of a sunburn on my leg, because I missed a spot. It helped cooling it down and felt so much better the next day!

NARS Tinted Moisturizer
Yet another holiday purchase - because we couldn't get NARS in The Netherlands up until the first of September - is this tinted moisturizer by NARS. I already told you about this product my latest, really minimal makeup routine in which you can find here. I love this tinted moisturizer, because I don't like to whack on lots of foundation. I hate how heavy foundation usually feels on my skin! So this is the perfect inbetweener. It covers just enough of my acne scars and I like how glowy this makes you look. I do have to top it off with some translucent powder, as I am quite oily myself.

I am currently using the shade Cuzco, but am already noticing that this shade definitely is becoming too dark for me. So I am definitely going to need to be buying a lighter shade soon. I feel a trip to Amsterdam coming up soon, just so I can get colour matched at the NARS counter. I am currently debating between the shades Alaska and Groenland, but I'm just not too sure at the moment!

Ego Gucci dupe Mules
The last favourite during the month of August, have definitely been these mules by Ego. They don't do this exact pair anymore, but have a few similar pairs here on their page. 
I love styling these mules with basically everything. I wear them with jeans, culottes, dresses. They're definitely just a very versatile piece in my wardrobe, which I am very excited about. This probably also will be the last time that you will be seeing these mules on my blog. It's pooring down with rain as I am looking outside right now, and I am wearing a fluffy jumper. So these are probably going to be hiding inside my closet for about a year. 


  1. I have a similar pair of mules in pink and haven't taken them off since getting them ! Not ready to give them up just yet

    1. Right?! They're just the best shoes to wear whenever you just want to slip on something easy but fashionable! :) xx

  2. Die culottes van Zara is zo mooi! :)

  3. Those shoes are gorgeous! Also I never considered that you could just buy a tube of aloe vera - I didn't know that anywhere actually sold it! I am definitely going to look out for some now as it has so many different uses.
