August Favorites

Beauty Faves

Essential Hypershine Gloss in Blossom #9012 from e.l.f.

I’ve been going low-makeup this month, so this sheer, nude gloss has been my go-to.

Sephora Collection Super Regenerating Oil-Serum from Sephora

Because I spent most of August blowing my nose, I’ve needed some extra moisture around my schnoz. This serum has really proven itself. Normally, even with extra daily moisturizer, my nose ends up dry & peeling after this much tissue use, but after adding this serum to the mix, I’ve seen no excess dryness.

 

Design Faves

NEW Watercolor Monogram Notecard Set from ASPDesignSolutions on Etsy

This notecard set, alone with this Watercolor Hello one, was the August design addition to my Etsy shop, ASPDesignSolutions. The set includes four 5.5″ x 4.25″ single sheet notecards (printed on Crisp White, 80lb Linen Card Stock) and four Crisp White A2 envelopes.

Sharpie Clear View Highlighters (Assorted Pack Of 3) from Office Depot

After I first saw the commercial for these new babes, I knew I had to have this highlighter. This highlighter is a game-changer. I no longer over-highlight my sentences thanks to the see-through tip. I’m obsessed!

 

Fashion Faves

Cable-knit Sweater from H&M

Because I’ve been a sicko, I’ve gravitated to easy outfits. This sweater is comfy but still stylish in mustard yellow.

Denim Overalls from Target

Like I said, easy outfits were my go-to in August. And few outfits are easier to throw together than a pair of overalls & a top. I think it’s safe to say overalls are the new maxi dress.

 

Food Faves

Quaker Protein Instant Oatmeal in Banana Nut

This instant oatmeal is obviously an easy breakfast to whip up. It has 10 grams of protein and keeps me full for a fair amount of time. It’s also delish topped with fresh blueberries.

Earl Grey Black Tea from Private Selection

Earl Grey with milk & sugar has been my comforting go-to this past month. I liked having something warm first thing in the morning to sooth my sore throat. A cup of tea sounds nice right now…

 

Home Faves

Isaac Mizrahi Kleenex Expressions from Kleenex

Again, because I was a sicko, the item I used most in August was tissues. Sexy, I know. If I put something in my home (even tissues), it has to be something I want to look at, and these boxes designed by Isaac Mizrahi are so chic!

Room Essentials Clear Globe Lights from Target

With so many sunlight hours, there’s little need for turning on the lights in my apartment. When I do need a little bright boost, I plug in these globe lights. They give off a good amount of light, and look very festive.

 

Personal Faves

Literature- If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Because of the book-turned-movie’s release, I wanted to read If I Stay before I saw the film. It was an emotional and well written book, and I can’t wait to see the movie for comparison.

TV/Film- Season 3 of Hell on Wheels on Netflix

This was a show my boo wanted to start on Netflix last year, and I was skeptical because I don’t normally go for anything in the action & adventure genre. My boo made a good call; it’s so good! Main character, Cullen Bohannon, is such a babe and the entire cast is spectacular. The 4th season is currently showing on AMC, and I’m excited to see how it goes.
