Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a beautiful summer day!
Today, I’m sharing what I have been loving in the month of August…and they come in pairs!
First up are my 2 crafty faves:
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:
- 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.)
- 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?!)
- 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 amazon.com.
That’s it! These are what I’ve been loving in August! What are some are your favorites?
