August Favorites

In case you couldn't tell from other posts lately, I am so ready for fall!  That being said, I can't believe how fast the month of August flew by.  Even though I'm beyond giddy that cooler weather is around the corner, I wanted to close out summer by sharing some of my favorites from the month.

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick in Rose Dressing

This perfect coral shade for summer accentuates blue eyes beautifully and doesn't look too harsh with my fair skin.  I'd call that a win-win.  Plus, you gotta love any lippie that can survive morning coffee, lunch, and an afternoon snack with little need for touch-up.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation in Fair-Light Neutral

I have to say, I have been very impressed with this product.  I can't remember a single weekend this month where I even bothered with liquid foundation because this stuff is just so darn easy.  I even wore it to work a few times and I didn't feel like there was an oil spill all over my face when I got home!  This will be accompanying me on my upcoming trip to Atlanta for sure!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Y'all.  I know I've said before that I'm usually not much of an eyeliner kinda girl.  But this is by far the easiest liquid eyeliner I have ever used!  You can draw the thinnest line ever with the felt tip

or go as bold as you dare.  And don't even get me started on how effortless it is to wing it out.  It doesn't feather or separate but removal is a breeze.  I just wonder why I never tried this sooner.

Korres Greek Yogurt Sleeping Facial

My skin has actually been leaning a little bit toward the dry side lately for who knows what reason lately.  But thanks to this moisturizer, I wake up with the softest, smoothest, most supple skin ever.  If it's good for your belly, it's good for your face, right?

Fresh flowers from Trader Joes

There is just something about coming home to fresh flowers on your kitchen counter that makes life so much happier.  At $3.99 a bunch, you really don't have an excuse to not get them! 


Since PLL is on hiatus and I binged my heart out on it to catch up to the current season, I needed something new to watch until my shows return in the fall.  Enter Parenthood.  I honestly can't think of any other show that has gotten me hooked so quickly.  I'm usually the type of person who needs to watch several episodes before I decide to jump in with a marathon or abandon ship, but I knew right away that this would have a place on my most recently watched category on Netflix.  And what do you know, it's returning this fall so I have a little bit of time to get caught up.  Don't mind me while I become a hermit for a couple weeks. 

What are some of your August favorites?
