about

The August Diaries began as a creative outlet during my academic years. It has since grown into a visual diary where I share life experiences, travel adventures, style inspiration, and beauty tips + tutorials. I hope to empower my readers to become the best version of themselves, and to use clothing as a tool to gain confidence.

My style has evolved a great deal over the years, beginning with a favourite matching grey Nike sweatsuit (yes, I did!). I believe personal style evolves as you learn who you are, what you want, and what you love, in life and in fashion. I am like every other woman in the world who has good and bad days; sometimes I’m insecure and sometimes I’m confident in myself. Ultimately, it is the woman and her self-confidence that can pull off any outfit.

If you’re interested in collaborating, advertising or just have a question for me, please feel free to contact me! I would love to hear from you.

What are your favourite makeup products?

I have a Best Of series that I do each week on my favourite beauty products… I am a beauty junkie so it’s hard to choose just a few!

They are Bonlook – the style is called Eclipse Granite.

Do you have any photography tips?

There are so many that make up a great photograph that’s it hard to express it all in just a few sentences. I’ve put together a few tips for looking better in photos here and will be doing more posts on photography how-to in the future!
