Favorite Book This Month: This has been such a weird month for reading for me. Looking back, I enjoyed all of the books that I read, but there isn’t one that stands out as an absolute favorite. I was pretty busy this month, so I didn’t find myself reading as much as usually, even though I somehow managed to stil finish 8 books this month.


When on my yearly girl’s trip, my friend Logan from Sage and Serendipity and I brought all of our makeup so that we could do makeovers and check out each other’s products. I discovered the Laura Mercier Eye Artist’s Palette ($55) and fell in love. I just ordered it, so I don’t own it yet but I’ve been in a bit of a beauty rut and this brought me out of it. I can’t wait until I get it and do a review for you guys! I'm sure this will end up in my favorites again next month when I actually own it

Ocean Salt Scrub from LUSH

I recently went into LUSH and was introduced to this scrub by one of their associates. Over the past year I have really gotten into body scrubs and love exfoliating in the shower. I loved the smell of this one (I’d describe it as a citrusy vodka) and it was also a really pretty blue color so I was sold. Shortly after using this, I noticed that the red bumps that I have on the backs of my arms (a fun dermatologic condition called keratosis pilaris) started looked less red and even disappeared a little. I can’t wait to keep using this and see if it gets even better!

Beauty Protector Beauty Protect Oil

I received a sample of this in my August Birchbox and fell in love with it. This is a hair oil that is mean to provide protection against things like UV rays and heat damage. While I don’t heat style my hair, it is dry and loves hair oils. First of all, the smell is amazing, but second of all it makes my hair so soft! I love mixing this with some of the hair creams that I have and putting it in my hair.


Canon Rebel T5i

Steve ad I finally bought a real camera! I have been wanting to buy a DSLR camera for a very long time, but even more so over the last year. Since we are getting married soon and then going on our honeymoon, we finally bit the bullet and bought one. I can’t wait to learn how to use it and play with it even more!

Guys, this is a very boring favorites month. I know I did a lot during the month of August, but when I look back on it I honestly couldn’t tell you much of what I did. I think I’ve just been a little overwhelmed with wedding stuff and work starting up again, so I haven’t been doing much else. I apologize for the lack of blog posts too. I can’t promise it’ll get better in the next month, but it’ll definitely improve after the wedding!
