If any of you have been following my scrapbooking for any amount of time, you will know how much I love Dear Lizzy by American Crafts products!  I know there is a brand new collection coming out, but this is the newest release that I have: Fine & Dandy.  I have absolutely been loving the Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy 6×6 paper pad and the Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy die cut card stock ephemera.  When I open the packaging of the ephemera, I put them in a little ziplock bag to keep them all together.  I love the ephemera pack so much that I bought two, and I’m already thinking that I need another one, hehe.  (Click on the links to shop!)  You can see these products in action in one of my previous blog posts here.

Here are my beauty faves:

  1.  Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation and concealer.  I have the foundation color in 30 Warm Nude, and the concealer in the shade Light Medium.  I have sensitive, combination skin, and I been loving these products.  I’m always hesitant to try out new foundations, because if my skin doesn’t agree with something, I breakout easily.  (I tried out a mattifying primer on my t-zone for 2 days a few months ago, and you could literally play connect the dots to make a T.)  This foundation did not break me out, and lasted really well on my skin.  I used it with the beauty blender for a lighter coverage, which I prefer.  The concealer is a perfect light weight concealer that I use to hide my dark circles of doom…bum bum buuuuum!  LOL!  (I got sent the foundation to try out & I purchased the concealer at Target.)
  2. Sun Bum Sunscreen and Face Balm.  I got these babies at Ulta Beauty.  They’re a little pricier than what I normally spend on sunscreen, but with a coupon it kinda evened out.  I love the formula…it soaks in and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy, and the smell is the best smelling sunscreen I have ever smelled!  It’s supposed to smell like bananas!  “Bah-Na-Nah?”  (Who loved the Minion movie as much as me and my girls did?!)
  3. Theorie Argon Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.  I have to say, the packaging drew me into this shampoo when I was at TJ Maxx.  After, I smelled it, however, I quickly grabbed the bottle of shampoo and dumped it into my basket.  After trying the shampoo for a few days, I loved how soft my hair felt.  I went back to TJ Maxx hoping that they had at least one more bottle of shampoo and a matching conditioner left (you know how TJ Maxx is).  This time, they had a giant bottle of shampoo and conditioner, so I bought one of each.  I usually buy whatever shampoo from the drugstore, but since I found these at TJ Maxx, I just paid a few more dollars than what I would normally spend on hair products.  You can find these at

That’s it!  These are what I’ve been loving in August!  What are some are your favorites?

Happy Thursday!
