Lets just take a second to think about how it is freaking AUGUST! Where did the summer go? The kids are starting school soon (thank god!) and pretty soon it’ll be pumpkin everything..yay!
Most people like to do monthly favorites but lets be real…wait for it…”ain’t nobody got time for that!” So I’ll start the trend, or maybe it’s already around, of doing seasonal favorites. I have had so much fun with the trends this summer and I’m excited to share a few of my faves with you guys. A lot of things aren’t in this post because I have plans for them in the near future, *wink wink*
This summer I have been OBSESSED with shorts that have different patterns and prints. These are just a few. They are fun and add so much personality to your wardrobe.
The pineapple and chevron pairs are from Wet Seal. The Aztec print are from ROSS.
Another thing I’ve been loving this summer are fruity candles. Usually I’ll burn fall and winter candles all year long but this year I couldn’t pass up the amazing scents at Bath and Body Works. I bought Watermelon Lemonade, Pink apple Punch, and Hawaiian Hibiscus. Another brand of candles I’ve recently discovered that are in my opinion just as good as the BBW candles is a brand called dw Home. I’ve seen these at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and ROSS. I bought the Cool Watermelon one. I love the neon pink with gold accents. They smell soooo good!
Along with summer is the pain of having to shave your legs every other day! I’ve been using the eos, shave cream. I will never use another brand. This stuff is so hydrating and the bottle claims you can shave dry or wet. It smells so good, and they claim it’s “almost natural” like their other products. The price is the best thing about it, I found mine for less than 3 bucks at Walgreens.
Next up is the Pearanormal Activity body lotion by gud from Burt’s Bees. This was on clearance at my Walgreens for $3.49. I didn’t purchase it the first few times I saw it there but after smelling it I had to take it home. I put this stuff on and no matter where I go or what I’m doing people always stop me to tell me I smell great….creepy, lol. But it’s true, the smell will last you hours after putting it on, you won’t even need perfume or body spray.
Last but not least, are my favorite nail colors this season. There are a few but I picked these to just give you an idea. The pink is the “Island Coral” I bought at Walgreens last night and the purple/lilac is called “Spitfire”. I’ve been wearing these, or colors similar all summer long. These colors make my hands look so tan! It’s going to be hard to switch to fall colors soon.
That’s all for now folks. I have so many new things lined up I can’t wait to post more!
