The summer is nearly over, friends! Is that adopting the “glass half empty” mentality?

I truly don’t know where the summer has gone, but August arriving means it’s basically September…which means it’s basically Halloween. So I’ll be here excitedly pinning Halloween inspiration and dreaming of pumpkin-flavoured everything.

Here’s a recap of my month on Instagram:

This is my go-to makeup look for every day, when I don’t have a lot of time, or just don’t feel like doing anything particularly dramatic.

It’s easy, and really brightens the complexion (which is great if you’re like me, and have atrocious sleeping habits.)
I’m using a lot of my current favourite makeup products.

Don’t let the long list of products fool you – this really is an easy look to create!

My second giveaway is a 100ml bottle of the Balenciaga Rosabotanica perfume. This fragrance is perfect for floral lovers! It’s fresh and floral, inspired by rose with a slight spicy twist. It has notes of blue hyacinth, fig leaf, pettigrain, rose, grapefruit, pink pepper, cedar, amber, patchouli, and more.

This is such a unique fragrance, and is surprisingly super lightweight on the skin! It lasts all day, without feeling or smelling overpowering like it may seem from the bottle.

To enter, all you have to do is:

  1. Be subscribed to my YouTube channel

  2. Be following me on Instagram

  3. Comment on this post or on my Instagram post letting me know you’ve entered!

This giveaway is open worldwide! I will be contacting the winner personally.

If you’re a small blogger like me and will be affected by this change, leave your channel name in the comments so we can help each other out!

Stay tuned for my next giveaway!
