August Recap

Welcome back everyone! I'm bringing you my monthly recap today going over all of my favorites, highs and lows and August purchases. I loved putting together this post for July because it just flowed so nicely and if you want to catch up with me, this is the place to do it.

Honestly, I can't believe it's already about to be September. August really flew by, but maybe it's because I spent the first half of August in sunny California! The trip was so amazing and it was exactly what Omar and I needed. I am definitely going to share a ton of California posts and you can find a couple of those here: How I Planned Out Trip to California & Pack With Me: California.

Highs & Lows
Highs: I think it's pretty obvious what my high of the month was. California all the way. This 15-day trip was incredible. I've always loved California, but to show one of my favorite places to my partner was the icing on the cake. Now that Omar has seen some of my favorite places, it's time to explore new place together. I'm already looking forward to our new adventures together.

This one way seem obvious.. but going back to work. UGGGGHHH! I have a huge vacation hangover. Going back to work was so hard and I'm missing Cali so bad.

Links I Love
There's not too many links I love, mostly because I've been so busy this month I haven't seen many reads online, but here are a few!

"In My Head" Music Video // Ariana Grande can do no wrong. She is the August cover star of Vogue and released her "In My Head" music video exclusively with Vogue. It's perfection, per usual.

Barbie Cars // This is sort of a random link, but I follow Barbie on Instagram because Barbie is #stylegoals. On the Barbie Instagram they posted the Barbie cars through the decades and wow.. adorable. I had a couple of those cars when I was a kid.

Kenzie Elizabeth Interview // I have to plug myself here, but I got to interview YouTuber, Kenzie Elizabeth, for my job and her interview went live literally on August 1st. I love seeing my work come to life and this interview was so much fun to do!

Ring Light // My parents surprised me with an [early] Christmas gift, but mostly because my mom was very excited to give me this. I was ecstatic to open this up because I couldn't believe that had my very own ring light! I love, love, love this ring light and it has definitely upped my photography game.

Biker Shorts + Graphic T-Shirt's // This trend has been going on for a while, but I'm just now jumping on the bandwagon, with no regrets though. This has been my uniform as of lately and it's extremely comfy

Deep Sleep Pillow Spray // I snagged this product at TJ Maxx for $14–can you believe that? This has been such a blessing for my nighttime routine. I even brought it to California with me. Maybe it's a placebo affect, but I definitely think this has helped me fall asleep more naturally this month.

Facial Oils // I'm always down to try new skincare products, but facials oils weren't something I cared to first. Then I listen to the "Straight Up With Stassi" podcast (blog post to come on my favorite podcast) and Stassi interviewed Lala who said one of her secrets to good skin is facial oils. So I researched the best facial oils for my skin and picked some up at TJ Maxx and let me tell you.. these $4 oils have performed better on my skin then the $30+ lotions. So thank you Lala because I am a facial oil gal now.

One more piece of California talk I swear.. but since I went on this trip I knew I'd be doing a lot of shopping so I actually kept my California haul in separate blog post and you can view that blog post by clicking the link here. As for the rest of my purchases from the month of August, they are listed down below.

Until next month. 
xoxo, Michele
