Favorite Products of the Month: August

Hello!

August has come to an end so that means summer is over and fall is around the corner! I especially love fall time because that means cozy/comfy outfits and scarfs!

I wanted to write a blog post on my favorite products for the month of August, so without further a do, here are my favorite products of this month.

My favorite product would have to be the Vera Wang Embrace Rose buds & Vanilla perfume. It is very affordable and smells beautiful. It sort of has that clean/fresh scent which is what I think about when I think of summer.

I’ve always heard that you’re a shade darker in the summer. I didn’t believe it till this year, when I came to realize this hard way. I never realized that I was getting tanner as summer was approaching. I remember looking at myself and getting surprised because of how pale my foundation made me look. I decided that it was time to purchase a new foundation for the summer. I purchased my first Dior product! The Diorskin Nude Air Foundation. This found is amazing and I am so happy I purchased this product. It’s coverage is amazing and it smells beautifully. This product is definitely going to be one of my top favorites for quite a while.

The Mac lipstick ‘Shy Girl’ has been my go to for this whole month. It is a beautiful pinkish/nude creme sheen lipstick and goes perfect with anything. It’s not too over the top and not too natural its the perfect combination!

Whether I am doing a natural look or more of an intense look I always use my Hoola Bronzer Powder by Benefit. I especially love how this product comes with a mirror it is great to toss into your handbag or backpack for emergencies.

The Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation has been a life saver especially since school has been on going. Whether I am doing a full face or just using the powder foundation it’s been my go to! It’s coverage is amazing, but it does not last long, so it but be reapplied every so often.

These are my favorite products for the month of August! I hope you have a great day and enjoy the week ahead!

My Week

31BE4E58-7343-4F0E-8B28-B69490071C43.jpgHello! Happy Saturday!

I’m so happy the weekend is finally here! I had a productive and satisfying week!

To begin, I started my first week of senior year in college! I can’t believe the finish line is almost here! I am currently taking thirteen hours this semester and since I am a senior I am completing my elective requirements. This semester I am taking advanced biochemistry, criminology, ethnobotany, and microbiology.

I have to admit this semester is definitely going to be tough semester, but I do like the challenge!

Usually my schedule for school consists of me going to campus only two days out of the week. This semester I am pretty much going everyday, Monday through Thursday.

My advanced biochemistry course seems like the class that is going to give me the most trouble. My professor made it clear the first day that the course was definitely going to be challenge. I didn’t really believe him until he started showing us the grades/statistics of his past students. Let me say that only one sixth of his class actually got As, which is not a very good outcome. There were more Fs and drops than there were of As, Bs, Cs, and Ds. The second day of class we had our first quiz and it was pretty tough! I must admit that I am most excited about this course, since biochemistry is my favorite subject.

It was an easy day of work I got to substitute for a second grade teacher! Second grade is definitely my favorite, since they’re always well behaved.

All in all, my week was great and productive!

I hope you all had a great week as well, and I hope you enjoy your weekend!
