Let’s start by saying what’s on all of our minds.. HOW IS IT ALREADY SEPTEMBER! Beyond that here are a few of the things I’ve been loving in the month of August.
So, I know everyone is on the S’well bottle wagon. But this is a bottle made by the same company and from what I can tell does the job just as well for about 1/2 the price! I got this bottle at target for about $25 and I love it. It’s prefect for traveling or just day to day!
In general I have not loved the damp beauty sponge application process in the past. However, I purchased this Real Techniques sponge because Jaclyn Hill was raving about it a few months about but didn’t really do much with it for a while. The last couple of months I have been absolutely love it for my foundation (IT CC+) and my under eye highlighting concealer (UD Naked Skin) application. Highly Recommend.
I picked up this Urban Decay – Smoked Palette for about $20 at Nordstrom Rack a couple of months ago, and I’ve been really enjoying it lately. I’m so ready for fall if you can’t tell. The deep browns, and emerald green just speak to me!
I may be ready for fall, but part of me is still hanging on to spring. Case in point – this Urban Decay lipstick in Turn On. I tend to gravitate to more nude or mauve colors but this just gives me life some days!
I am probably the last one to breakdown and invest in good quality headphones. I am that girl that was always buying overpriced crappy headphones at the airport because the last pair of crappy headphones I bought broke between trips. Well, I finally took the plunge. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG! These things are incredible! I went with the Bose corded and I have to say, SO WORTH IT!
Along those same lines, my music favorite of this month is without a doubt… Brett Young- Sleep Without You. This is such a good tune, and it just always puts me in a great mood. If you haven’t heard it yet please go listen to it. It’s on almost all of my current Spotify Playlists (@hillaryhuffine)
As most of you know, the MayDesigns backgrounds for computers/mobiles are my favorite way to start a new month. Keeps me so organized plus they are always so pretty!
I have been traveling a good amount this year, so I picked up this Travel Journal from Target. I thought it was so neat, it has pockets for you to put post cards, pictures, boarding passes that you are saving. It also has maps with “pin” stickers for you to mark where you have been!
One of my favorite Christmas presents last year was this Coleman luggage, and I have been putting it to the test this year. But let me tell you, I love it! If you’re int he market for luggage I can’t recommend it enough. It’s reasonably priced from Walmart, and it is really great quality. The medium size is my favorite for 4+ day trips, but the carry on size has gotten the most use out of it for weekend trips.
Last, but absolutely not least… CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA — My Mom and I went for a week on vacation this month and it was so amazing. We were not ready to come home when the week was over. I’m already trying to see when I can make it back out there. Such a beautiful city, amazing food, and incredible history.
So, what were your favorites this month? What should I try, what should I listen to?
Until Next Time.
