Monthly Muse: August 2019 Favorites

No comments
It is my time! August is over, summer is over and next week unofficially starts Fall. This is when I shine and this year is going to be a better Fall than all the rest. It's a truly fresh start for me! After a long 4-5 months of unemployment (storytime on that coming soon), I will be starting a new job in two weeks so it's like going back to school for me.

This Fall I also have a few weddings, some fun fall activities, a Jonas Brothers concert, and of course, my birthday. It's going to be a good season!

But before we get into the fun of Fall, we have to wrap up the summer with the last favorites post!

Monthly Favorites

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda


I don't know where I mentioned this or if I even did but I've gone back to the Lilly Pulitzer agenda. I still am using my Louis Vuitton MM Agenda as a notebook/sort of planner but this year I really needed something a little bigger. I was craving a change and I decided my Erin Condren wasn't going to do it for me anymore. Lilly just has the best layout, with the least amount of hassle. Sometimes simple is best and that's what I needed this year. We'll see if it changes because it usually does halfway through the year! So far, so good though! It's been sitting at home on my desk and has been keeping me on track. I will be traveling with it to work once I start so I will report back if anything changes! 



Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss

Thanks to one of my sorority sisters, I won a beauty giveaway from Carly Hill this month! I was so excited to get my hands on some new beauty goodies (when am I not?); one of the items was an Urban Decay Hi-Fi Lipgloss in the shade 'Obsessed' and I wasn't too thrilled about it because I felt that I had heard bad reviews about this particular formula. Well, I was mistaken because this is my new favorite lipgloss. It is not sticky, has a very minty/plumping feel and adds the right amount of shine to any lip look. I've been really into adding lipgloss on top of a regular or liquid lipstick and this has definitely become a staple. 


Kylie Cosmetics Sippin Pretty Eyeshadow Palette

I had my eye on this palette last year when Kylie released it for her 21st birthday but ended up not getting it. Well, it made its way to Ulta this year and I almost bought it a handful of times. I ended up not getting it because it's a $65 palette and I have too many eyeshadow palettes. It was recently 50% off and I was shopping with my aunt who so kindly purchased it for me. Holy hell, I am in love. I haven't really been using anything else all month. These shadows are super soft, very pigmented, and blend like a dream. Also, don't let the hot pinks scare you away -- it's a very wearable palette that you can create countless looks with. 

Love Wellness Bye Bye Bloat

I did talk about Bye Bye Bloat in my favorite wellness supplements post but I was off of it for a little while. It tastes and smells so bad and I just couldn't use it. However, this month I was pretty desperate because I felt so bloated on many occasions. I just hold my nose and guzzle water to mask the taste. I take it after a meal or at night, per the directions and feel so much better and not bloated in the AM or a few hours later. It's like a magic pill and I highly recommend! 


I hope you all have a great last few days of August!!
