Just a few favorite things from the month of August…
A camping adventure on the coast with friends. (I’m sure to post more in my next recap post!)
Beating the stupid freaking heat! Cool evenings, weekend plans that will keep me inside or on the river all weekend. It’s supposed to be A HUNDRED AND TEN DEGREES TOMORROW. Welcome, September. #ugh
A fidget cube. Yep, I’ve joined the masses. But nothing has helped me resist picking at my split ends more, and that’s been a nasty habit for almost HALF MY LIFE.
Burning fall candles unreasonably early. (Loving this one and this one. This one is not really fall-ish, but it’s also on my favorites list lately. So is an INCREDIBLE one from Michael’s called Tahitian Waterfall by the brand Tranquility, but I can’t find so much as a photo of it on the internet. WEIRD, right? I will Instagram it tomorrow…Lying in bed right now with the lights out 😉 )
A fresh month starting tomorrow! I’m all about fresh starts, whenever I can make the excuse for one. September is often a fave because (a) I am a lifetime nerd and back-to-school time still excites me even though I don’t get to go back to school anymore. 🙁 and (b) FALL. My fave. ❤️ I’ve got a WAY better blog calendar planned for this month than I’ve had in a bit, so fingers crossed I can stick to it!
Ozark. Whyyy must Netflix be cruel and make us wait a year for season 2??? 😩
At least the new season of Younger is proving just as wonderful as the last few. Also, I’m surprised by how much I enjoy The Bold Type.
This cult fave makeup powder. I had no idea there was something in this world that could keep my (enormous) forehead from getting oily. I’m SHOOK!
Been watching a whole lot of YouTube beauty videos lately. Once upon a time, I loved a good fashion magazine but somehow fell out of the habit. It’s fun to bring that back a bit. 😉
An eyeshadow primer! Said YouTube videos convinced me I should actually try one. Who knew they work. (Not me.)
Another recent beauty find, but one I grabbed based on name alone: healthy sexy hair leave-in conditioner. I’ve been looking for a more affordable option to replace my discontinued fave. It doesn’t make my hair as soft after it’s been washed, but suddenly my hair doesn’t feel like straw the next day. #winning
The best no-show socks that actually stay on your foot.
This Trader Joe’s dessert that I’ve seen forever and finally tried for the first time tonight. I tend to prefer a higher filling-to-crust ratio on pie-like treats, but this is damn good for a quickie microwavable dessert!
Fruity water. Always a love, but lately I’ve been keeping a big pitcher of rotating fruit flavors in the fridge. Just makes my water look so much more enticing, right? Especially helpful when strategically placed next to the beer…
Planning fall recipes! What do you want to see? Favorite fall foods or flavors?
Annnnnd bedtime. Goodnight, my internet friends.
Let me know what you’re loving lately! Stuff, TV shows, food, music… anything!
