August Favorites


Another month has come and gone and here is the favorites for August!

Beauty I have a few favorites that are standing out this month. My hair has not been without one of these two products during all of August- One n Only Argan Oil Curl Cream from Sally's for when I just want to enhance my natural wave while reducing frizz for a quick, no fuss look as I run out the door and Bumble & Bumble Brilliantine to give my curled or straightened hair a bit of unkempt texture. I've been working long hours all month and Origins Ginzing eye cream has been helping me look more awake, fight off my dark circles, and giving my eyes the moisture they need. I've been sporting a couple quick coats of Essie's Bobbing for Baubles all month- its a beautiful navy blue color that I just adore.

Home I stocked up a bit at Bath and Body Works a few weeks ago and these were two of my favorite picks- Lemon and Mint Leaf candle is possibly one of my favorites. Two of my favorite, fresh scents rolled into one and it smells JUST like my mint leaf and lemon water that I drink like my life depends on it- no overly artificial mint or lemon scent here. Stress Relief Eucalyptus and Spearmint pillow mist is something I have used almost every day. It leave my room/bed smelling delicious while the perfectly combined scents do as claimed and help me unwind from the stress of the day while I relax and clear my head before bed. Lastly I have started a little herb garden in my windowsill which might have overshadowed everything this month. I LOVE fresh herbs about as much as I love knowing where my ingredients and food are coming from. In about a month I will have all of my favorite herbs just a reach away in the kitchen and I couldn't be more excited about it.

Entertainment After seeing the movie when it was first released I have downloaded Never Let Me Go and just finished reading it before sitting down to type this up. As much as I love carrying a book around the convenience of an e-reader can't be beat. I'm a little late on this but Mad Men has me hooked as I have been trying to watch at least one episode every night this month.


What were some of your favorite things over the last month?
