After powering my way through 5468761 empties last month, I feel like I've not done very well in August! This little lot looks pretty pathetic by comparison...
Might Repurchase: Forever Living Aloe Bath Gelée* | As I mentioned in my review, I've been using this as a shower gel as I don't have a bath, but it worked well - lathered up nicely, smelt quite pleasant and was gentle on my skin. I do think it's expensive for what it is, and it's not my favourite Forever Living product, but I'd consider treating myself.
I've managed to use up quite a few samples this month; I've been trying to have a bit of a clear out again! I seem to go through phases of stockpiling them, and then a few weeks where I'm pretty good at fishing a sachet out of my sample box to try out, and then I fall out of the habit again...
If you missed my August goals you can catch up on the whole post here, or read on to see how I went on with them...
• Complete Total Warrior in 90 minutes or less. Well this went horribly wrong! It was all going so well and I was on track for my target - I don't really know what happened but around 6km round the 10km course I started to feel really, really sick and my legs turned to jelly. I walked most of the last 4km to finish just under 2:15 which was a lot slower than I was hoping for. I'm proud to have finished because I really did feel dreadful, but I'm so disappointed I didn't get even close to my target! I actually had to get my boyfriend to pull over on the way home and we sat in a lay-by for about 20 minutes because I really thought I was going to be sick.
five things she's learnt from CBT which was a really interesting read for me, particularly given that my new job will feature a fair bit of CBT. I love Elizabeth's blog and her post about her adventures in the Lake District was another favourite for me - I love that she lives so near to me!
MAC Star Trek collection and I became a little bit obsessed with the Trip The Light Fantastic Powder; I'm not a Trekkie by any stretch but this is just too stunning for me not to, well, seriously covet it!
Amongst my own posts, favourites include my Harry Potter-inspired makeup for the #BeautiesOnFire Collab and my MAC Lipstick Collection, so do head on over and check those out if you missed them.
August in Summary
A funny old month indeed, but I feel like I'm getting settled into my new job now, so hopefully I'll be able to get back into some kind of routine as we head into September! It's felt like a very long month in some ways, yet in other ways it seems to have flown past. How has your month been? Have you been up to anything nice?
