I don’t think you need reminding that it’s our birthday this month! Well, in honour of all things pink and glossy, my August Editor's Picks include an incredible range of shimmery products that are to die for!

From handbags to eyeshadow palettes and perfumes, here are my top picks this month. As always, you can win them all by entering below:


Johnny Loves Rosie - Carrie Crossbody Bag

If you caught up with the news from our birthday event, you’ll know that Johnny Loves Rosie provided some gorgeous headbands for our birthday goodie bags! When I saw how pretty these were, I couldn’t help going for a cheeky shop on their website. That’s when I came across this adorable shoulder bag. I just had to include it in my August Editor's Picks!
I love the design of this bag. Simple, sophisticated and a stunning shade of rose gold, you just can’t go wrong!
This Carrie Crossbody bag is a lovely rose gold hue and has a cute little bow on the side. A small rectangle, it’s the perfect size bag! Just big enough to fit your phone, keys, purse and makeup, but no so big it becomes heavy to carry around. You can wear it over your shoulder to add some glitter to your everyday outfit, or remove the strap and carry it around like a clutch for a glamorous evening look. You have to admit that the design is simply stunning!

W7 - Eyeshadow Palettes

Because we all know that one eyeshadow palette is never enough, I’ve selected two for my August Editor's Picks! Designed by London-based makeup brand W7, these eyeshadow palettes offer an incredible variety of shades in a range of gorgeous finishes.
I love the variety of shades and finishes these palettes have! You can either use them to create a subtle natural finish or to build striking and bold looks.
The Delicious palette boasts 14 shades, from nudes to browns, pinks to plums and creams to oranges. Meanwhile, the On The Rocks palette combines earthy and natural tones in a range of metallic, glittery and creamy shades. All of the hues are highly-pigmented, blend easily and compliment each other. If you want to experiment with colour and texture, then you’re going to love these!

GHOST - Purity Eau De Toilette

I always ask for a perfume on my birthday, so I had to include one in my August Editor’s Picks! Have you Glossies tried Purity before? This Eau De Toilette is just perfect for me. I’m not one for over-powering scents, and Purity has a light and refreshing fragrance that lasts for hours.
A luscious blend of rose, violet and casa blanca lilies, Purity has a gentle floral scent that is both light and refreshing.
To be honest, though, I was initially drawn to its stylish bottle. A sleek and curvy design, it reminded me of a woman confidently wearing a show-stopping fishtail dress. If I’ve got a tough day ahead, channelling my inner sassy and sexy self is the best way to hype myself up!

Twist & Spritz - Refillable Fragrance Atomiser

Of course, I couldn’t treat you to a perfume without giving you the tools to carry it around with you!
This refillable atomiser is the perfect, compact way of taking your perfume out with you.
It can contain 8ml of fragrance (or about 100 sprays), meaning you don’t have to constantly top it up, but it isn’t too heavy to carry around. To use it, you just need to lift the inner compartment out of the beautiful casing. You can then place the refillable tube over the nozzle of your perfume, and pump your favourite fragrance into it. The best part? If you want to fill it with a different perfume, you just unscrew the top, wash it out, and start again.

Morning Glamour - Satin Pillowcase

Redefining the meaning of beauty sleep, Morning Glamour have designed a range of soft satin pillowcases that give you smoother skin and healthier hair overnight. Of course, I had to choose the pink one for my August Editor's Picks! For those of you who are wondering how a pillowcase can be used as a beauty tool, allow me to explain. Essentially, a cotton pillowcase dries out your complexion by absorbing the moisture from your skin. It also sinks into your skin, creating creases and lines that, over time, take longer and longer to fill out.
With a satin pillowcase, you'll wake up with smooth and soft skin as intended!
This satin pillowcase, however, is non-absorbent. That expensive night cream you use before bed? It will actually stay on your skin, rather than being partly transferred onto your pillow. As for your hair, did you know that cotton pillowcases create friction every time you move? This can damage and break your hair. A satin pillowcase, meanwhile, has a much smoother surface which eliminates that friction. No friction - no damage! And there you have it, my five August Editor's Picks. Don't forget to enter for your chance to win them all!
