August Favorites

 I cannot believe it is already September! I feel like August just flew by!! August was a great month for me. I reached not only 100 GFC followers, but by the end of the month I had over 200 GFC followers!! Thank you all so much!! Another goal that I accomplished during August was I hosted my very first giveaway with a fellow blogger, Tawny. The giveaway went better than we could have ever imagined! Congrats again to Valerie from Valley Fash for winning! I am excited to see what September has in store for me. :)
 
 
So here are some of my favorites for the month...
 
 
Essie's "Off The Shoulder"
I LOVE this color! I just think it is the perfect Summer color. I would paint my nails a different color, but kept going right back to this one!
 
 
Soap & Glory's Hand Food Lotion
This lotion can be summed up in one word....AMAZING! It is so soft and moisturizing, but does not leave that greasy feel to your skin. It is made with shea butter, macadamia oil, and marshmallow! It smells amazing as well!
 
L'Oréal's Colour Riche Balm in "Caring Coral"
This has been my go-to item for the month of August! It has been so hot in the South that during the day I haven't really felt like putting on a lot of makeup, so I have just put this Balm on, some blush and mascara and I am out the door!

Benefit's Bad Gal Lash
I am in LOVE with this mascara! I got it in a small kit of Benefit items from Sephora, so it is a  smaller version of the mascara. I love how big the wand is! It makes it so easy to get every single lash and makes my lashes look very long and full!
 
 
Clarisonic Mia & The Clarisonic Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser
I actually bought my Clarisonic a couple of months ago, but I did what I guess you are not supposed to do and stopped using it when my skin was going through the "purging" stage. I did not even like my face breaking out, so I thought the Clarisonic was NOT for me. I went to Sephora and talked to the sales person about it and she told me to keep using it and recommended the Daily Clarifying Cleanser to me. I started using it and LOVE it! My skin feels and looks so good after I started using this Cleanser with my Clarisonic!
 
Tarte's Eyelash Curler
This eyelash curler is the best curler I have ever used! It gives my lashes the perfect curl without pulling my lashes!
 
 
 
So what are you the items you were loving in the month of August?

  1. I stopped using my Clarisonic for the same reason, I still haven't started again though but I do use that cleanser and I really like it!

  2. I have the Soap & Glory Hand Food Lotion and I love it so much. It's on a par with Coco Lotion from LUSH as my favourite hand cream. I don't have any Essie nail polishes, I aim to rectify that very soon!

    1. I can't wait for you to get some Essie polishes!! They are really great! You will have to tell me when you do get some and what you think. I have never tried anything from Lush, but have been dying to!

  3. I just picked up the L'Oreal lip balm a couple days ago and I wish I'd read your review first lol! The pigmentation is a let-down but I must admit, it's reeeally hydrating.

    1. aw I hate that you were let-down by the product! The pigmentation is definitely not as good as I hoped for either, but you are right it's extremely hydrating!

  27. Funny story, I got a Clarisonic from my husband for my birthday this year, and he didn't wrap it in true form. He just plopped it down on my Grandmother in Law's kitchen table (we were visiting) and as I was getting ready pretending I didn't know they were gathering to tell me Happy Birthday, I hear, "Johnny, what exactly IS that? Do you think that is appropriate to give in from of the whole family?" I DIED! Not what you think Grandma!
