|Flower as a filler, isn't it pretty!|

I'm sure that you'll agree that these 'I <3 My Lips' lip balms are really cute, I love the little bullet shape with the heart on the end. They're, obviously, reminiscent of other lip balms that hold this form but I think they're individual enough that you can see they're from a different brand.
The packaging has a really soft, nice feel to it and they feel like great quality despite only being £2.99 each (or £10 for all 5).
There's a nice range of scents starting with 'Mint Sorbet', 'Blueberry Crush', 'Raspberry Fizz', 'Wild Strawberry' and 'Cool Vanilla'.
I like all of them but my favourite two are, probably, the mint and the raspberry. I really, really, like fake raspberry scents.
You can, definitely, tell what all of them are supposed to be, though, and they all have a nice level of scent to them. I gave the Strawberry one to my 6-year-old as he loves lip balms as he gets dry lips and he loves anything strawberry.
I was pleasantly surprised as how moisturising these were. Low priced lip balms often only have a short term softening result but these really lasted well and left my lips feeling soft for a long time. I like them a lot.
You can get these from the new Tam Beauty website. I think a lot of us were really hoping for a site where you could order Makeup Revolution, I <3 Makeup and Freedom all in the same place and, yay, it's finally here!

In August Oliver has come on in leaps and bounds: He's getting super vocal and can say 'Dada' and 'MA', he can sit unaided and he's guzzling down food like tomorrow may never happen. | Books, as always, have been a big part of the month, expect that on all months, books are always important. | And, unfortunately, the health stuff has been a big thing too. I've had some half answers but I still have lots of questions and, amazingly, some brand new health stuff has appeared!
I haven't been able to crochet as much as I'd like in August but I have enjoyed the bits and bobs that I've done. | I've been trying to remind myself to do things that I love, every day, things for myself and this plaque from my Treat Box helps. | Of course August has been a very Ethan centric month, with it still being the Summer Holidays. He's been able to do some lovely things (mostly with other people) and, overall, has had a good break.
More book stuff, of course, this necklace, from my Crime on the Pages box, is one of my favourite bookish accessories. | In August I've started trying to improve my handwriting. I can't do handwriting for long, due to hand pain, spasms and weakness, but I want what writing I do to be pretty. | And this face, again, because whyever not? I can't believe he's half way towards 7 months already, he's a delight. I am a very lucky Mummy, with both of my boys.
It's a very quick overview of the month, but I like it. It's a nice way to show you a few things without going in to big, long, rambley, depths of information. I have managed to get a few posts up, recently, but as always we shall see how that goes. But, as I said, keep up on Instagram if you want to stay in touch, I'm always there.
