August has been a beyond crazy month for me- I moved across the country and started graduate school! I am still trying to adjust to the weather and the bustle of city life, while also trying to keep up with all of the new information that school is throwing at me. If anyone has any recommendations that could help me figure out this humidity situation, I would love to hear them! I’ve always lived in a fairly dry climate and I’m quickly figuring out how different it is just going outside in a humid area! Anyways, if you’re interested in the things that I’ve been loving this month, just keep reading!
I’ve seen this product around YouTube a ton recently so I decided to give it a try! It took me a few times to get the hang of applying it because it doesn’t seem like applies well with a makeup sponge, which is what I normally use, so I had to switch to a liquid foundation brush and get some practice with that instead. Once I got the hang of it, I started to really like this foundation! It blends out really easily and doesn’t feel heavy on my face! It does take a few pumps to cover my entire face but the pump dispenses a fairly small amount so I don’t feel like I’m caking it on or anything. If you’re looking for a full-coverage foundation, you should definitely check this one out!
We get a short lunch break in between classes during the week so I started bringing my lunch with me every day. I needed a lunch bag that didn’t make me look like I was ten years old again so I set out for an adult lunch bag. I found this one at Kate Spade and it is so cute! It wasn’t too expensive and looks great with my school bag. It is a little on the smaller side but I’m the type of person who eats food if it’s in front of me so the small size actually works better for me!
3. Hello Vino (iPhone App)
I’ve always been more of a wine girl than beer or anything else but I always stress a little bit when I go to the store to pick out a bottle of wine and want to try something new. I like trying new wines but am hesitant to get a whole bottle of something I might not like. I started using this iPhone App called Hello Vino that helps me select wines I might like based on my specific flavor preferences and I am obsessed! I love how easy it is to use and feel much more confident picking out different things to try.
I’ve actually been using these products for a little over a year but I’m going to talk about them here because during the move, I had them packed in boxes so I was using shampoo and conditioner that I picked up from the drugstore. After just a few days, I really started to notice a difference in how my hair feels when I’m using drugstore products versus the Pureology products. The Strength Cure line keeps my hair smooth and hydrated and it smells amazing! It is a bit on the pricey side but I always purchase it in the jumbo size for the best deal and it makes my hair feel so soft and luxurious so I think it’s totally worth it!
Thanks for reading! Until next month!
