August Favorites

August Favorites Round-Up

Welcome to my August favorites round-up! This post is not sponsored in any way and I’m reviewing these products without prior compensation from any company. I think by now y’all know how much I love to share a good deal or product, so I hope you find something new to try today! (Links to purchase items will be at the end of this post).

My first August favorite is the clip-on selfie ring light by Genuine Ingenious! Pros: There are three, graduating illumination settings for super low-light situations — gotta get that light ring in you iris even if it’s the middle of the night! The wide clip allows the ring light to be attached to a phone with a huge, protective case (like my Otter Box!) and even fits over a case and the front-facing camera on my MacBook. Cons: It would be nice if the designer took into consideration that not all front-facing cameras are in the center of the device. For example, my Android phone has a right-side camera which means the ring light has to be attached to the corner of my phone so as to not cover up the camera! It’s only a mild inconvenience, but still annoying as it makes things a tad awkward! I’ve been using it for 90% of my selfies anyway! The selfie light is also super convenient for on-the-go face-timing in a darker room, or if you want to film a video on your laptop for uploading to YouTube or Facebook without spending a ton on lighting equipment!

On to item number two! The NYX Born to Glow Illuminating Primer has quickly become my favorite primer. I’m on my 3rd tube now! I’ve never re-purchased a primer this many times before. You can see me wearing it in the photos in this post. It creates a natural, from-within glow that only truly comes from healthy skin, and it builds the perfect foundation for all my makeup. It doesn’t sink into my pores, crease or flake, even after wearing it all day and sleeping on it! (yes, sometimes I sleep in my makeup — bad, I know!). I don’t have any cons to list for this product — It’s $14 and currently available at Target and Ulta stores as well as NYX online.

I’m a hair-care junkie. If it promises thicker, longer, fuller, shiner anything, I’ll try it! I’m on my 2nd bottle of Sugar Bear Hair gummies and I can honestly say they’ve made a huge difference. I had head hair growth in areas that have been “sparse” for 10  years (noticeably around my temples and hairline). I can’t say that your results will be the same, but I’m certainly a believer! As with any supplement, ask your doctor first if they think it’s safe for you to take. As far as hair care supplements go I think they’re on the moderately less expensive side. The most I’ve seen them listed for is a 30-day supply for $33 on Amazon.

What sort of Southerner would I be if I didn’t include a Kendra Scott item on my favorites?! It’s not hard to continuously have a new KS fave though! I pretty much had a heart attack when I saw the new Fall collection and the subsequent Nail Polish line that released last week. Of course Kendra makes lacquers to match her best selling stones — Smart woman! I snagged up a Rose Gold polish (shown above), along with a new rose gold drusy bracelet to add to my addiction collection 🙂 I’m planning on taking the polish over to Jen at Parlour 3 to have her create something gorgeous on my nails ASAP! I’ll definitely ‘gram the results for y’all! Who else is obsessed and happy with the current rose-gold trend?

Last, but not least, I have to rave over this darling disco ball tumbler with a light pink straw from Hunter Paige Salon! You’ve probably seen it a few times on my Facebook & Instagram, sparkling alluringly from the corner of a few photos! I just can’t even handle how happy it makes me every time I see it — I plan on getting a total of 6 to keep on my bar at all times! (They’re so darling as bridesmaid’s gifts! Check out blogger Hunter Schleicher’s post for cute photos of her “proposing” to her bridal party!) If you’re thinking of getting some of these cups bear in mind they are delicate and should be hand-washed so none of that gorgeous silver metallic finish scratches off.

10 Things I Keep In My Bag During January

What's In My Bag / Jan. 2016

(Quick snapshot of my Christmas weekend loot haul!)

Hello Dolls! I can’t believe January is almost over! Ahh! I’ve barely dented my Resolutions list but that’s what the 11 other months of the year are for, right? 😉

I wanted to do a little Christmas day haul post because I got so many questions on social media but it seemed very self-centered to dedicated a whole post to just gifts (I like all my blogs to contain something free, helpful or informative for y’all!) However, I will talk about one of the items I received from a dear friend currently living in Prague — A gorgeous Givenchy Medium Antigona duffle in Beige/Buff with custom rose gold hardware and a specially commissioned adjustable strap. I mean, can you even?! With this new bag came the decision to switch out from the bag I normally carry (A 30cm Etoupe Hermes Birkin with palladium hardware you can see me carrying HERE) and update the contents! There are a few things I cannot be without during the dry winter months…
