Favorite Eight: August

Hello!

August has come to an end and with that I comes this months favorite eight items.  Of course one of my most favorite things about August is my birthday! Honestly that probably the only reason I love August.  Being that I am from Texas, the heat is dramatic, to the point that a couple of weeks ago I was excited to see that it was going to be 97°F!!!

Anyway, here are my favorite items from the month of August.  Enjoy!

Essie Nail Polish in Sunset Sneaks

I have always wanted an Essie nail polish but I have never bough one because they are a bit expensive.  Lucky for me, my boyfriend decided to buy one for my birthday!! I like the color a lot because it is kind of a coral-y color.  I think it is a good color for both summer and fall because of the orange colors, so it is a great summer-fall transition color.  I also love the quality of the polish, I have had it on for almost a week now and I haven’t had any chips.  I would like to add that my job is usually not the nicest on nail polish so the fact that it has not chipped has me excited!  You can buy this nail polish pretty much anywhere, I have seen them in Walmart and Target; my bf bought mine from Kohl’s.

Hello!!

I thought I would share my daily makeup with you.  On the days I do wear makeup (which is not everyday) I usually wear this.  I may or may not wear eyeshadow, eyeliner, or lipstick but the rest of the makeup is what I have on for sure to feel like I am put together.  I have to mention the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz because this pencil is a game changer.  The pencil is tiny enough to precisely fill in your eyebrows and the spoolie brush on the other end is very convenient.  I use to shape my eyebrows and also to blend the product for a more natural look.  I also really recommend the ChapStick in the Candy Cane flavor because it smells like Christmas and it gives an amazing tingly feeling to your lips.

Mexico Vacay!🇲🇽

Hello!

So I shared my Florida vacation with you so now I’m going to share about my vacation in Mexico.

I had so much fun visiting my family, especially my little cousins! (They are so cute!😊)

 I finally saw my completed house and it makes going to Mexico feel more like home because I actually have my own room.  I enjoyed waking up and having a such a beautiful view from the kitchen.

I also had the most amazing T-Bone steak from a place named Mariscos Chilo. It was so full of flavor and it makes me hungry just thinking about it!!

  We spent most of the afternoons hanging around the house which I did not mind because it was a wonderful place to get away from everything. Since there was no wifi and barely any cell service, it really did help get mind away from work, school, and everyday life and just connect with my family. During the second week, I did, unfortunately, get food poisoning which was weird because I can usually stomach the food from over there.  It was horrible but with the help of a shot and a delicious tea, I slowly got better. Luckily I got better in time for my delicious steak ( I was def not going to miss that!! It was so much fun and I really can’t wait to go back!!😃

July’s Favorite Eight

Hello!

I want to share with you my favorite eight items for the month of July.  Why eight items you ask?  Well it’s simply because it is my favorite number because I was born on August 8th.  (I’m almost 21!!🎉🎉)  I will be doing a favorite eight every month.  I’ll simply tell you more about the random eight favorites.  Usually is will be beauty related but I will also thrown in some random things like music or even games that I am playing.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid

I wanted to try some makeup from MAC and since I needed foundation, I decided to start there.  I was amazed with the product the first time I tried and I still am.  Most foundations make my skin feel oily and I have to put on translucent powder to get rid of the oiliness.  With this though, I put it on and it is matte but it still makes my skin look healthy since it does not dry it out.  I will for sure be using this foundation for a long time!MAC Studio Fluid Fix

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

I bought this concealer along with MAC Studio Fix Fluid.  I had heard from someone on Youtube talk about how it does not crease.  Being that creasing was my major problem with concealer I was excited to give this a try.  Like the foundation, the concealer does not feel thick or oily.  It does crease but very slightly and once I apply translucent powder, it does not crease for the rest of the day.

MAC Pro Longwear

LORAC PRO Palette

This palette has the most beautiful Rose color, it is the main reason why it is my favorite for this month.  It is very pigmented and it is a great color for both a day or night look.  My other favorite colors from this palette are Lt. Brown and Nectar.  I like to put both of those colors on my crease to add a slightly pink touch.  I have been using this palette way more this month than my  Naked palettes because I feel that it gives me a bit more variety in one palette.

Babe Lash Eyelash Serum

I wanted to have longer eyelashes but I was always iffy about products like this one.  What convinced me to purchase it was because Aspyn Ovard would always recommend it on her YouTube channel.  I absolutely love this product because it really does make my eyelashes longer and it is noticeable within 2 – 3 weeks.  It does not irritate my eyes at all and I apply this with or without my contacts in.  I strongly recommend this product!

Pantene Rizos Definidos Hair Cream

I found this hair product in Mexico, and sadly I can only get it over there.  It helps keep my curls pretty and frizz free. I am sure there is the U.S. version of this product so if I find it I will let you all know.  While in Mexico I felt that my hair was just a frizzy mess and I just did not like it even though I had just gotten a haircut.  I gave this product a try and it works wonders.  After I shower I like to mix it with some mousse and apply it and once I wake up in the morning I have frizz-free hair.

Hair Cream

Marina & the Diamonds

I have been obsessing over her music, I bought her first album and instantly loved it so I bought the other two right away! My favorite song from her at the moment is a tie between Obsessions from  The Family Jewels and Froot from FROOT.  It is pop with an edge, which is probably why I love it so much since my favorite genre is indie rock and indie pop.

Flip Pix Game

I am addicted to this puzzle game and honestly I have a hard time describing it so I will try my best.  The boards range from 5×5 to 20×20.  On the side it gives you a number and that is the amount that is supposed to be green, in the end it reveals a picture.  It is $1.99 on iTunes and it is the only game that I will buy without debating if I need it.

True Blood

This is my favorite show and while it is rather inappropriate I find it interesting.  I actually realized that I if could be any supernatural being I would want to be a vampire (and yes, I love the Twilight Saga!! )  I am actually watching for the second time even though I just finished the series in June.  It is an HBO series so like I said, not the most appropriate but it is very interesting!

Well that was my Favorite Eight for July! Let me know if any of these are also your favorite!
