August…August…August…what a wonderful month. I went to Niagara Falls, the Syracuse State Fair, Rhinebeck Fair and this has nothing to do with August but I am going to another big fair in October. Me and my dad are fair people 🙂 This summer was wonderful, although I did not go on any big adventures (I have next summer and coming winter to look for that) I had a lot of fun. I got to hang out with tons of my friends and eat as much ice cream as I wanted.
I thought a good way to welcome in the Fall air and say goodbye to August was to post a August favorites video. There are many things I liked and discovered this month so i wanted to tell you guys them, maybe some of these products will even help you. I hope everyone has a great school year and I look forward to continuing my blog all year.Getting to see the NY and Canadian Falls is definitely at the top of my list — they were beautiful. What really made the trip special was all the adventure we signed up for while we were there — such as “The Cave of the Winds” “The Maid of the Mist” and “The Observation Deck.” We did just about everything you can do there. We went in front of the falls, next to the falls, on top of the falls, and about 3 inches from being about to go under them.
The Bath and Body Works lotion- Tiki Mango Mai Tai. This lotion smells amazing and is a great summer scent! I wore this everyday and so many people asked about it because it smells so wonderful!!
Bath and body works- beach nights summer marshmallow – 24 hour moisture ultra shea body cream. This lotion is moisturizing, smells like heaven, is not heavy, and lasts all day. This is my 3rd bottle of this lotion and I’m am going to keep on buying it. It smells so good and to me actually smells like marshmallows. This is one of my favorite scents.
Skin care: The charcoal black sugar dual-action scrub facial mask purifies and exfoliates skin for all skin types. This product makes your skin so soft and really cleans your pores. This has helped my skin so much and for anyone with problem skin definitely try this out.
Fig Newton Bars Originals. A few weeks ago I was at the store and I saw these and I had to try them!!! Omg I love them! They are a breakfast bar or late night snack that’s so good. I buy the fat free ones in a box of 12 (two fig newtons per bag) and they last me about 2 weeks. If you haven’t tried them and you know you like figs go check them out because they are so yummy. I buy mine at Walmart, there are also other flavors if you don’t like fig.
A recipe for Healthy Pancakes -just use banana ,protein powder, cinnamon, eggs and baking powder! I was looking for a easy and healthy recipe to use in place of my bisquick pancakes. This recipe is really great and tastes oh so good! Go check it out!
NYC liquid lipshine Color: Bowery blush. This is a great lip gloss for summer and it’s a great price! It’s more of a gloss than lipstick which for me is awesome. It has shimmer to it and it a beautiful blush color.
Maybelline baby lips lip balm color: cherry me. This is such a nice lip balm. It’s moisturizing and has a hint of a cherry color. Its more of a very light lipstick and is not super pigmented FYI so if your looking for a red lipstick this is not for you. But if you are looking for a nice tinted balm that also smells good this is awesome! I plan on using this all year round.
Maybelline blushed nudes pallet. I love this pallet. The shadows are the perfect pigment for me and it was not expensive at all. I love pink shadows so this was perfect for me. I have hit pan on so many of the colors.
Favorite book: The fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien
Banana boat deep tanning oil. On the days when I wasn’t at the beach or hiking I would apply this spray to my skin and sit outside in the sun or a few minutes. This product really helped me keep my tan and did not cause any reactions to my skin.
Hair care: beautiful curls fortifying hair lotion. For the past few years my hair has been more wavy than curly. It’s because I get my hair dyed and that causes wear and tear after a while. I missed my curls so I decided to try this product out after hearing great things about it! I love it! I apply this to my damp hair after showering, I scrunch my hair and then let it sit until my hair is dry ( don’t brush your hair while it’s still wet) . This product has really helped strengthen my hair and get it back to where it was years ago.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my favorites from August. I will be posting a fall favorites in a month or so, so make sure you follow me so you don’t miss it. Also, if you have any questions about these products just leave a comment down below and I will respond. Have a great day 🙂
