Ahh, the end of August. I can’t believe it’s here already. Raise your hands if you feel like summer FLEW by! Today, I’m sharing some of favorite things from August 2018. There’s some fashion, beauty, a little travel and some lifestyle items I wanted to mention. Gotta cover all my bases, you know.
I got this bag early in August and took it on vacation with me. It’s a really great day time bag considering the size! I love mini bags, and this one isn’t SUPER mini, it’s just the right size. It fits a good amount for those ladies that like to carry around everything they own. My only complaint is that due to the size of the bag, there’s not a very big opening to get things in and out.
I mentioned in my What I’m Reading post that I was really enjoying this book as an aspiring Social Influencer. She writes from the perspective of someone who is scouting out Influencers for campaigns and sponsorships, which is helpful because she tells you exactly what companies are looking for.
This is where I stayed for my trip to Miami in mid August and I loved it! It had beach and pool access, a really delicious restaurant on site and fabulous drinks! It wasn’t in South Beach, but it wasn’t very far so it was a great location. I had such a wonderful time here!
I just recently bought Olaplex to see if it will make a difference for my highly damaged, sad curly hair. After the first use, things seem promising! Honestly, a good hair cut is probably what I need, but until then, I think this will be very helpful! I can’t wait to see how it repairs my hair over the next few weeks (because I couldn’t get a hair appointment until October LOL k).
I got this palette for Christmas last year and literally had not used it until recently. Apparently, I was really missing out because this is one of my favorites right now! When I want to glam up a little more than just mascara and concealer, this is definitely my go-to. The warm colors really accentuate my tan and they are the perfect colors to transition into fall with!
I’ve mentioned these sandals in quite a few posts over the last month and that’s because I literally cannot stop wearing them. Seriously. They are just SO easy to slip on and they go with just about everything. I have them in 3 colors and they are 100% my most worn shoes of the summer.
7. Iced Coffee
It’s sort of funny to add this onto my list, but honestly I have been drinking iced coffees every single day since the middle of July. I usually just drink hot coffee, but iced coffee is seriously so refreshing. I buy the big 48 ounce bottles from Target and pour myself a cup every morning before work. Brings me back to my college days, when I was drinking 4 venti iced coffees a day! Good times!!!
This brand has been doing a lot of good things for me this summer. I was a bit wary about it when it first came out, I’ll admit. But now I almost always find something I like. The clothes are really pretty and on trend but at an affordable price. Plus they are excellent quality! They also carry the absolute best leggings I’ve ever owned, so that’s a plus.
