A U G U S T F A V O R I T E S

This month I might have gone a little overboard with the spending but all together it was money well spent. It was officially the last week of summer this week and I have listed all of my favorites from a range of topics like beauty, fashion, music, and more.

This face wash and Clarisonic Mia 2 duo is the key to clear skin. I stopped using it for a couple months and I felt the difference in my skins appearance and texture. I decided to buy the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser again and have noticed a huge difference in the week I’ve been using it.

A cheaper alternative to the Clarisonic Mia 2 can be found here, according to the recent Amazon reviews.

The Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara is the best mascara I’ve used in a very long time. I just recently got eyelash extensions so I can no longer use this mascara while  I have them but this mascara definitely gives you that full, dark, lash that fake eyelashes or extensions give you.

I know I am going to be wearing this jacket every day this fall.

Of course, the Balenciaga Triple S would be the dream, but I can’t justify buying a $900 sneaker when I have piles of student loans to pay off. When I saw that DSW was carrying the FILA sneakers for only $60 I knew I had to make the move. I saw these everywhere when I was in Paris and there’s so many different ways to style them I just told myself fuck it I can pull them off.

My favorite jeans ATM are these Wild Fable jeans from the new Target collection. I have a blog post coming up with all my favorite items from the collection but this is hands down my favorite piece I got. They’re cute, trendy, and comfortable everyone always asks me where I got them!

Beginning on August 1st I moved into a two bedroom apartment with one of my besties which means we needed (and still need) a lot of furniture and decorations. I’ve been ordering items from Amazon religiously and making daily trips to Target but here I’ve listed a few of my favorite affordable finds that I purchased for my bedroom and living room.

Himalayan Salt Lamps (Set of 2) Essential Oil Diffuser

Essential Oils Set : My favorites from this set that I always have in my diffuser are Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Orange.

Large Plant Pot Cover : I ordered this planter to stick my perfect new plant that I scored from Home Depot for only $40. It’s my favorite piece in my new room!
Fake Ivy Hanging Plant (2 piece) : I love resting this on shelves to add to the decor. Although fake plants aren’t the best feng shui I feel like they’re still cute to pair with surrounding real plants.

I’m not much of a movie person simply because once I get through the popcorn, the buncha crunch, and the XL slurpee I start getting antsy and can’t sit through a two hour long movie with no breaks. But it happens once in a while where I catch a trailer and I get really excited to go see a certain movie, this month it was Crazy Rich Asians. I went to see it and I could not recommend it more to anyone. It brings out all of the feels – laughter, tears, clinical depression and jealousy. And if you’ve seen it or you’re going to see it all I have to say is… THE WEDDING SCENE.

This popsocket has changed the game. I am obsessed. Everyone says to get one but you don’t know until you know – I don’t know how I held my phone before this… the days of me dropping it on my face are behind me.

 

Hope you enjoy my August favs!
