My August Favorites!

Hey everyone, now as you will likely know by now, I’m not in the country as this post is going up and I’ve written this in advance. I’m currently on vacation with my mother in Mexico visiting family. Because I’m gone for a week and a half for this vacation my August post won’t be as complete but those posts will come!

I don’t have many favorites as I haven’t been using too many different things this month and am also feeling very ill the day before my flight (when I am writing this) so I can’t really think of anything. I don’t have many beauty favorites so it’ll be a lot of old stuff and then a few new non-beauty favorites. Either way, here is the stuff I’ve liked that I can remember. Here we go!

First up is my NYX Setting Spray. I really like this one as I feel it does help my make up stay on all day, particularly on my nose where it normally disappears the fastest.

These blue sandals have been absolutely wonderful! I’ve been wearing them non-stop since buying them and I really wish they had come in coral too.

I’ve also enjoyed the Theraflu Flu and Sore Throat packets of powder. They make a delicious tea that helps fight off the flu and it’s symptoms. I have the flavor apple cinnamon and added a ton of honey to it which I think really helped me quickly get back on my feet. I forgot to take a picture of the box but here’s the packet.

Target swim suits are amazing. I have black bottoms that are also shorts which I like because I don’t particularly like the underwear panty ones. I got a three new tops which I think is a little much but my mom for some reason told me to bring all three? I think she’s planning something. Unfortunately I packed them all and forgot to take a picture but trust me they’re cute.

Despite seeing maybe a million suitcases in one day, this one was my favorite! This Tommy Bahama suitcase from TJ Maxx is beige with pink detailing which I loved. I only got the little carry on size as that’s all I need for the trip but it looked really cute as a whole 3-piece set. Still this suitcase has been the perfect size and I’m really glad I went with this choice!

And my breakfast favorite has been the Brown Sugar Cinnamon Poptarts! I try to have fruit for breakfast but every so often I’ll just have poptarts. They’re really good and not over-the-top sweet.

And for my last favorite has been Kelly McGonigal’s TED Talk “How to make stress your friend”. I’ll link the stress management playlist here so you can view all of them if you wish but I really recommend McGonigal’s. My department at work does monthly lunch and learn presentations, and I chose to do mine on stress management, which was ironic because I was very stressed about it. I really liked this video and changed my presentation around a bit to be able to include this talk. I’m really happy with how my presentation went and I think this TED Talk was a huge hit!


And That’s all my favorites! Like I said, I don’t have many and they’re kind of just random favorites but I did enjoy them all.

Thanks for reading!
