Things I loved in August 2012

So August is nearly over and fall is already taken over my mind.
But I can't deny that there where a few things, that made this month a little more special. I decided to highlight a few things I enjoyed most. Partly they are birthday gifts and partly I purchased these things with my own money,  I worked very hard for.

The khaki vest from zara was previously featured in one of my other posts where I showed how i styled it. And I've been practically living in it because it goes with so many outfits.

I also wanted a denim shirt for quite a while and when I saw one in primark for only 13 € I had to get it. 
its lightly acid washed which prevents it from looking too polished and I really like that.

The Longchamp "le Pliage" bag in navy blue was a birthday present from the best mum in the world.
 Its so pretty and fits loads of stuff in it which is protected from rain because of the nylon material. 

 These shower gels with oils are so hydrating and they smell amazing. There are different brands that sell   
 these but Nivea also is available in different countries.

The necklace was a birthday present from my friends from uni. I know for a fact that its from H&M because 
I saw it one day but I found it too expensive. When I came back to buy itr anyway it wasnt there anymore.
I love studs and spikes because they make an outfit really edgy. 
And now that its really a trend its much more easy to find jewellery in stores.

I bought the Jeffrey Campbell Litas earlier this year as a reward for my first uni exam period but was to afraid to wear them because they were so expensive. I wore these with my birthday outft which was just a little black dress with a zipper in the front from H&M. I adore them. They are black suede with glittery butterflys on them.

The tea tree oil range from the Bodyshop really helped with my blemishes and irritations I had. A real life saver if you know what I mean.

The illegal lengh mascara from maybelline first came to my attention when my dear cousin recommended it and she was right ist amazing it defines every single lash and makes it even longer. I bought it in black.
The lipstick ist from Manhatten from the X-treme last and shine series in the shade 33N. I first discovered my love for orange lipsticks when I started watching Zoes chanel on youtube. You may know her by the name of Zoella. She also has a fabulous blog I will link both of them here.

Last but not least:
What you can also see on the first picture in a light blue can, is a dry shampoo from my local drugstore -  nothing special, it was actually very cheap. I just wanted to try it out and it really helped me because I wanted to start washing my hair every third day. This dry shampoo is from "balea" the house brand from dm. Maybe i will purchase one from batiste next month.
