These are a few of my favorite things: August

Tomorrow is September 1st....seriously!?! School started back up for me this past week, Pumpkin Spice lattes are out, Halloween candy is in the stores...yet it's still difficult to believe that we're already at this point in the year. Fall is by far my favorite time of year though, so as much as I enjoy summer, I'm really for all things fall!

So let's bid adieu to August and jump into my monthly favorites!




First up is this Kate Spade iPad mini case. I am SO happy that I snagged this when I did. Can we just talk about how gorgeous it is!?! I don't know why, but I've been pretty obsessed with anything rose/rose print lately and this definitely fits the bill. It keeps my iPad nice and snug and is also a smart case, which means that my iPad goes dark when I shut it, preventing the battery from draining too quickly. I also featured this case in my Back to School series here!




This book has not only been one of my favorites of the books I've read this past month, but also a top favorite of the books I've read this summer overall. I absolutely loved the story and cannot wait for the second installment and also, the movie which is set to star Emma Watson! You can read my review of The Queen of the Tearling here! 




Oh me, oh my! Why have I not tried this chocolate before!?! While it definitely took me far too long to grab a bar of this, I'm so glad that I did. Sensitive teeth be damned! Can I get this by the case please?! It's the perfect compliment to reading, studying...pretty much anything.



Alright so next up is this miracle product from Kiehl's. I bought this Intensive Treatment and Moisturizer specifically for my feet which, unfortunately are pretty dry and have a tendency to get cracked. It's something I'm pretty self-conscious about and for which, I have purchased a mountain of products. Let me say that NOTHING I have tried could ever compete with this moisturizer!! This is definitely a holy grail product that seriously does the job! I could see this being a great product to have on hand in colder months as well. Seriously - if you have any dry skin issues, go out and buy this now!!



Let's continue with the apparent trend of TMI and talk about this deodorant from Dove. This is the Advanced Care skin renew deodorant and I have to say that not only does it smell lovely and do the job as far as deodorant goes, it also achieves the claim of restoring your skin tone. I can be pretty picky when it comes to deodorants, and purchased this to replace a natural product I was using that did NOT do the job. Besides this deodorant, I haven't used a Dove product in years and am wondering if there are more winners that I've been missing out on? Let me know!





So this next product is one I'm pretty excited about. I'm sure it's been around for ages, but I'm late to the party! I recently picked up this Clinique bottom lash mascara from Sephora on a whim and it was worth it for sure! This makes applying mascara to your bottom lashes a breeze. No more dealing with huge wands on those pesky tiny lashes! The wear is great and I haven't noticed any fallout. When I'm out of this, I will definitely re-purchase!





Last but not least is this Dior lip glow color reviver balm. I picked this up from Nordstrom when I was actually intending on purchasing a different Dior lip balm. Let's call this a happy accident because I am so pleased with this product. First off, the packaging is gorgeous! The balm itself is super moisturizing without being greasy or heavy, isn't too shiny, and gives your lips a wonderful dose of color. This is definitely one of those products that you can throw in your bag and go! It's a "your lips but better" color!


That's it for August! Now we move onto my favorite time of the year: Fall! What were your favorites for August? I'd love to hear them in the comments! Feel free to share your blogs & videos as well! :)
