Monthly Muse: August 2020 Favorites

This felt like a very long month with many ups and downs. It might've been the most difficult month for me since quarantine started and I'm happy that it's over. I'm also excited for Fall, obviously but because August was so difficult, I'm finding it hard to get into the fall spirit. I realized a lot this month and I'm hoping that I could make the changes I need to make to be who I want to be.

We're entering my favorite time of the year and even with all the bad stuff that has happened this year, I really want to try to find a way to enjoy it all. We shall see how that goes! 

For now, I want to get into my favorites of the month; some might seem random but they're all my favorites.




Newsletters

While the news has been stressing me out it's still important to me to be informed. I've always loved newsletters, mostly theSkimm and The Newsette but lately I have found a few more newsletters that I enjoy reading in the morning: The Morning Brew is a new one for me and it's so informative. It covers a lot of different areas, is well written and interesting to read. They also have other niche newsletters that cover retail, tech and lifestyle news. I love starting my morning reading newsletters and drinking my coffee to know what the day is going to bring. 

iPad Mini

I've mentioned this favorite before but I have to mention it again. I have been obsessed with my iPad Mini for months but this month especially. I love the compact design, the portability of it, and the versatility of it. I've been experimenting with digital planners and the iPad mini is great for this. Other ways I use my iPad mini is for reading and social media -- similar to how I use my phone. I'd also like to try to find new ways to use it but I will never be without an iPad, they're the best! 

Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser

I haven't used a cleanser in my morning skincare routine in years because I've been using Simple Micellar Water. I love my micellar water and it has done wonders for my skin but lately, my skin just feels like it needs extra TLC in the morning. I received the newish Summer Fridays cleanser in the mail last month and have started using it in the morning and I am in love. It is very gentle, smells very fresh and leaves your skin clean but not stripped down. The reason I didn't like using a cleanser in the morning is because some feel too heavy for morning or aren't really refreshing -- that is until now. I have used this at night and I love it but it's definitely more of a morning favorite for me. I highly recommend if you like something soothing in the AM! 

Louis Vuitton 6 Ring Key Holder

This is an oldie but goodie! I never really understood why everyone loved the Louis Vuitton key holder until I purchased one. I don't have a lot of keys, just two house keys and a car fob but having the key holder makes it easier to find my keys in my bag. It's nice to always have them in one place and have it organized in your bag. I don't mind an actual keychain and for the past few months I've had them on a regular keychain and it was fine. But then when I change over to the key holder, I realize how much easier it makes my life. If you don't want to spend the money on a designer key holder, you could find cheaper options! 

See, I told you these were random favorites!
