My Fave August Buys

I’m starting a new monthly installment where I talk all about my favorite five buys of the month.  I hope you enjoy!

NYX Cream Blush in Glow $5.99 // NYX Cream Blush in Boho Chic $5.99 // Pink Sponge $4.99

All the popuar beauty bloggers have been raving about NYX Cosmetics, specifically the cream blush for almost a year now.  Before this purchase, I’d never used a cream blush.  I’ve always been a foundation and powder kinda girl and was worried that the cream would cake with the powder.  Well, under the advice and example of some beautiful friends, I decided to ditch the powder.  (I do use Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Powder if I start to look shiny.)  Anyway, I hustled over to CVS and bought these crazy cheap tubs of glorious, creamy color.  The “Glow” shade actually looks a little darker in person, so that’s typically what I wear for a night out.  The “Boho Chic” is my go-to daytime shade.  LOVE the fact that it gives a little glow (similar to a highlighter) on my cheek bones.  Also, I picked up that crazy looking pink sponge at CVS too, I really like it for the lighter shade, but it doesn’t blend enough for the darker shades, so I use a standard beauty sponge for that.  You all need to RUN to CVS right now and pick up these lovelies!  August is Beauty Month at CVS, so if you spend $30 you can get a $10 CVS gift card (through 8/30 only)!  Make sure you’re enrolled in the Extra Care BeautyClub and don’t fogert to stop at the coupon kiosk in store for even more savings.  LOVE CVS!

Novelty Magnets $2.99

These magnets are from Target, they come in a three pack, and they have really helped me get my act together.  In addition to the kid’s back to school binders and the school calendar with contact info hanging inside a cupboard in the mommy station, I still needed a way to label all the individual calendars.  Not to mention I also needed to keep “to be turned in” papers in an obvious, I-won’t-be-able-to-forget-that-because-these-babies-are-all-up-in-my-grill-every-time-I-open-the-fridge kinda way.  Mission accomplished, for now anyway…

Bamboo bowls with lids $3.99 – $5.99

I got these ador-a-bowl (see what I did there?) bowls on sale at Cost Plus World Market.  They are made of bamboo, they nest, and really cheer up the inside of my fridge.

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Coconut Lime $7.49

This is not a new item to me, but I forgot about it for almost 10 months, so it feels new.  I bought it at Ulta, the price is right and the smell is divine.  They have a few other scents, but this one is def my fave.  I’m so happy to be reunited with this smooth, soft skin miracle worker.

Ryder Jacket $128

I bought this in the beginning of the month.  I haven’t actually worn it yet, but I can’t wait to!  Come on cool weather!  Can’t you just see this with dark wash skinnies, cognac riding boots, and maybe a leopard scarf?  It’s so soft and the fit is very lady-like.

XOXO
