August Beauty Favorites

Unlike the month of July, I actually had some beauty favorites throughout August! 

My favorite drugstore foundation and brow pomade are tried and true products in my collection, but they came in extra handy during those hot, summer days when I needed my makeup to be sweat-proof. This makeup sponge was purchased in an effort to cut down on costs, and let me tell you – I’m not sure I’ll ever buy a BeautyBlender again. This budget-friendly version is just as good. I was all about berry-stained lips last month, and I’m thrilled that both this lipstick and gloss combination will carry me well into the fall months (you can see this combo in action here). 
And, last but not least, I was thrilled to receive these biotin supplements to test out – I take a biotin vitamin nightly, and now I even look forward to it since these gummies basically taste like a piece of candy. If you haven’t jumped on the biotin bandwagon yet, I highly suggest that you do – my hair, skin and nails have never looked/felt better since I started making this a regular habit. 
What beauty items were you loving throughout August?

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft
  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram
  • “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” Alice, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
