As I write this, I’m secretly dying inside because July is over, which means on 10 days left until school starts again:/ On a more positive note, here’s what I’ve been loving this month:
• Beauty •
Ulta Nail Polish • When I was in the checkout line at Ulta, I saw their nail polish on sale and my mom warned me to not get it. She said that she tried it a couple of years back and absolutely hated it. My mother is always right, but I took a chance on this one, and actually really love it. The brush is big and the formula is very nice!
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush • My makeup sponge (Beauty Blender lookalike) was starting to get old, so I wanted to give this brush a shot. I don’t normally use a face brush, but I’ve heard really good things about Real Techniques. This brush is dense an soft, but it would be nice if it was little bigger.
• Clothing •
Old Navy Eyelet Shirt Dress • I wore one of my new favorite dresses (similar) a few posts back (here), and I can’t say enough good things about it.
• Accessories •
J.Crew Straw Tote • I know I won’t be using this (similar) nearly as much during the school year, so I’m wearing this as often as I can. The straw is something that isn’t as common in purses, so I really appreciate the uniqueness in this
Charming Charlie (in general) • I used to walk into Charming Charlie (a few years back) and hated it for the gaudy bejeweled overload, but now I make it a point to stop by every time I visit Old Navy (they are both lucky neighbors). I always find something I like, whether it be nautical, classic, or just a simple piece that’s ideal for stacking.
• Food •
Smoothie Bowls • I just love this new and trendy way to eat smoothies. Whenever I begin my morning with a smoothie bowl, I feel so satisfied (plus they are very asthetically pleasing haha). I always put loads of granola on top, as well as flax seed, coconut flakes, blueberries, strawberries, and sometimes mini chocolate chips.
Happy (early) August!
I’m still on the road, but I’ll be back in a couple of days!
