aug ’17 / favs

hey friends! I have a small but amazing roundup of monthly favorites that I wanted to share for ya’ll. I’ve been using all of these products CONSTANTLY this month and I don’t see myself slowing down haha. Hope ya enjoy ❤

Tarte Blush in Paaarty


I got this cute sample size Tarte blush from my August Ipsy glam bag and it is AMAZING. I am definitely not a blush type of gal but this shade is a lovely, subtle peach that gives you a natural flush. I’ve been using this every time I put makeup on this month and I love the finish and how long it lasts on my face!

Backpack from Target


I got this cutie from Target and I’m actually surprised by how sturdy the backpack is. It’s a simple black, pleather, drawstring backpack that has a lot of room and two front zip-up side pockets that are handy for my iPhone and wallet. I love the size of this backpack and how feasible it is to use.

NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder


An oldie but a goodie. This might possibly be better than my coveted Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I forgot about this face powder and decided to repurchase it. Best decision of my life. I love baking my under eyes and forehead with this-it leaves a very smooth, matte finish that lasts for a good number of hours. Such an amazing product for under $5!



This was my birthday present to myself and it is literally my baby. I do everything on it-social media, gaming, drawing/sketching, tv-watching, etc…It is capable of doing much more than what I use it for but I purchased it mainly for me to digitally doodle or draw. This particular one is the generation 5 regular iPad with retina display so watching Youtube and movies is soo nice!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray 


I mentioned this product in a previous post where I talked about some new products I was trying and this facial spray became one of my most-used skincare items this month! I spritz it on at least twice a day, morning and night. It’s refreshing, hydrating, and my skin drinks up the herbs and rosewater that is infused into this face mist. You can also use it all over the body and even in your hair! Some people use this as a makeup setting spray but I prefer to spritz on bare skin, before makeup and right before I moisturize in the evening. This is only around $7 I believe so an amazing deal!

I hope you enjoyed my August favs, friends. If we share some favorites, please tell me below! xx
