• August Must Haves

    August Must Haves is a roundup of items that I need want this month, I can’t believe it’s already mid-August. But then again I am too exhausted to even be surprised at how fast 2016 seems to be moving at. The rate the months are starting and ending is quite alarming. Every month I am finding myself in the same situation of thinking, I will make ensure I enjoy the month. I am enjoying it don’t get me wrong but there are times where I am so busy I don’t know who I am anymore. It is always nice to sit down, take it all in, plan and then tackle the month.

    That being said, there are a few things that I am loving this month because it’s back to school next month. I thought I include a couple of school related items that I need and other necessary items.

    August Must Haves

    Stationery – So next month I am heading back to University (Part-time) to do a masters program in my field. It is an honour that my work is paying for this privilege. This calls for some stationery shopping from cute planners, pens and notepads. I had to take a picture of pineapples stationery as I couldn’t leave the shop with all these cute items staring at me.

    Portable Charger – being on constant move. Though I don’t always have time to recharge my gadgets so having a portable charge makes a huge difference to my life. I have tried several different brands of portable chargers and most have saved me well, but now I am shopping for a new one.

    Mad about the boy, since Bridget Jones movie is out next month. Why don’t I go recap the previous movies. Great I idea but then I remember I need to be in the ‘reading mode’ getting ready for back to school. I decided it made sense to read the book than to watch the movie.

    August Must Haves



    Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

    I never get tired of buying (receiving) lipsticks, I have built myself a collection over the last few years. A friend recently bought me a couple of Urban Decay lipsticks from the Vice Range. Firstly, aaaah I now own an Urban Decay item, secondly I can not seem to get enough of them. I have been looking to see if I can get a couple more Urban Decay Lipsticks.

    Garnier micellar water

    BzzAgent introduced me to Garnier face products which I loved and can’t seem to get enough of. It was a choice between the Garnier cleansing wipes or micellar water. I chose the wipes but now I have been looking at grabbing a bottle of the Micellar cleansing water.  Currently I am using Sinivali’s cleansing water and it has been doing an amazing job.

    And there you have it, my August Must Haves. What items do you have on your August list?

      Some great ‘must have’ items there. My current must have items in my bag are: a Dior lipstick, multi-use charger, a good book (The Bookseller of Kabul atm), my iPhone, a notebook & several pens, a small bottle of perfume and facial wipes. I also always carry a bottle of mineral water.
