My favorites of the month ; August

I love to watch vlogs on youtube and something I always found an interesting topic is favorites of the month.
So I decided to do it on my blog.
I’m going to mention 10 things I loved this month for myself and for the kids.

Here they go;

1 My fit flops.
These are my number one favorite. I have the ones from AVON. I really love them. I love that they look a bit dressy and have a flower on them. I’ve had them on almost every day and walked in them a lot and I lost about 4 kgs in three weeks. My legs really slimmed down and I can now fit back into pants I used to wear more than ten years ago. Wonderful !

2 My sunglasses.
I got them from Claire’s on sale on the airport.
I love the sparkly stones on the side of them and wore them a lot last month as we had quite some sun.

3 My leopard print bag and wallet.
The brand is Lipsy but they are especially made for AVON. I ‘m crazy about leaopard prints and hot pink so I find this combo ‘the bomb’ I absolutely love them.

4 My wide, leather belts.
I bought them on the car boot sale for 1 euro each.
I love this type to wear with jeans and love the sparkly stones.

5 My black blouse.
(Sorry I have no pic at the moment) I bought it in St Vincents (thrift store). It's from Awear. I just love the style. I love how they are long enough to cover my stomach and they are black so they’re ‘slimming down.’

6 My Audi
I love having a big automatic car where the whole family can fit in properly and I love actually driving in it. I got this thanks to my sweet and generous mother.

7 Trike
I bought this for Nevaeh and just love it. Got it in Cheeverstown (Thriftstore) I always saw people walking with trikes and I kind of envied them. I really wanted one but they were so expensive new so I was really happy that I found a used one for 10 euro. Nevaeh loves being pushed while sitting in it and it somehow was a good exercise for my legs used in combination with the fit flops.

8 Lightweight Stroller
I got a simple stroller in V&D in the Netherlands where I was on a holiday. I got it to put Nevaeh in and travel back to Ireland with her and my luggage. It wasn’t easy but it worked.
And I’ve used it every day for three weeks after we came back. I wasn’t wild about the colour but it was just handy. I’ve walked a lot while pushing Nevaeh in this stroller.

9 Toddler Slide
I got this last year in Dunnes Stores for Yovannah. Nevaeh is big enough for it this year and loves it.
I put it inside when we were on our own in the house and she kept going on it.
I put it in the front yard this week and she, Yovannah and Ixora are having a great time with it when the weather is good.

10 Mineral water
As last favourite I want to mention; big bottles of mineral water.
They are actually my ‘all time’ favourite because I try to drink a lot of water because it is supposed to help with weight loss and it is just healthy. It’s also important on warm days to stay hydrated.
I'm getting these big ones at the Aldi for about 1,29. I also used it for making Nevaehs tea less warm.

These were ten of my favorites for the month of August.
