August Favourites


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHaving had a Tommy Hilfiger aftershave last year and loving it, when my current aftershave ran out, and I saw ‘Tommy’ on sale I couldn’t resist it.  It has a fresh, citrus scent to it, that smells good all year round and it lasts all day long, with no problem.



TRXYE is Troye Sivan’s new EP. I was so excited about TRXYE I stayed up until midnight so I could listen straight away and I was not disappointed. I love all of the tracks, especially Fun, and I’ve had it on repeat for days! I really would recommend TRXYE. Troye has an amazing and unique style, which I love and he has done incredibly well! You can listen to a preview of all the songs here!

Yankee Candle – Black Coconut

IMG_4135This candle smells and looks amazing! When Eleanor got me this candle a few weeks ago I was really excited to light it and see what it was like. The scent is really nice, it has a nice subtle coconut smell with a musky aroma. It is a relaxing, refreshing candle. I was really pleased that even when the candle is not burning in my room you can still smell it. It’s not a feminine smell, like a lot of candles are, so it is a pleasant smell to have in my room.

Cereal Magazine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter reading about Cereal in Steve’s ‘Travel Essentials’ blog post I ordered myself a copy of their latest volume! Within a couple of days my magazine arrived and I spent most of my day reading it. I absolutely love it! Cereal is a travel and lifestyle magazine, this volume featured Singapore, Brecon Beacons, Sunglasses, Succulents and Vancouver. I really enjoyed reading all of the articles, and I particularly enjoyed the ‘Summer Vibe’ Photo Essay. CEREAL is really aesthetically pleasing, it’s neat, it’s simple and it just looks great! It has really given me some photography and writing inspiration. I’ll definitely be buying more of these magazines!

Apple TV

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI watch a lot of YouTube and watching the videos on my phone screen, is too small sometimes, and it also means I can’t tweet or text whilst I’m watching the videos, so I decided to buy an Apple TV. Since buying it I’ve used it everyday and it’s great. I can stream a video from my phone onto my TV, or use the YouTube application on the Apple TV. I also use it to play films through iTunes and listen to music. If you have a lot of films on your iTunes account or watch a lot of YouTube I would one hundred percent recommend Apple TV for streaming them! I love the design, it is simple, sleek and compact. Also, I particularly love the remote, it is so slim and minimal it is stunning. I am a big fan of the design.

These are all my monthly favourites this month, what have been your favourite things in August?
