August Favorites


Can you believe tomorrow is September 1st?! I, for one, cannot because you know what that means... NEXT MONTH is baby month! OMG. We are over the moon and just counting down the weeks and days until we get to meet our girl. In the meantime, I wanted to do a quick monthly recap and share some favorite things from August with yall before the long weekend.


This foundation primer. Seriously feels like velvet on my face haha. Better news, it's on sale right now if you're a Beauty Insider with Sephora. Read this post to find out what that means and see my top picks this weekend!

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan that everyone and their mom always talks about. I finally bit the bullet on snagging this during the NSale and holy moly, I now get the obsession! It honestly is the softest and coziest cardigan I've ever owned. I also got this wrap, which is easily as amazing. The cardigan is 100% going in my hospital bag with me! 

My first Europe post, all about how I packed a capsule wardrobe for our 18 days away from home earlier this summer!

32 Week Bumpdate blog post. I've also been having a lot of fun with sharing weekly bump pics and updates on my Instagram - check out week 30, week 31, week 32 and week 33 if you've missed those and be sure to follow along for more to come!

This stretch mark cream and this sugar scrub, both from Skin and Senses. My skin has been super itchy as of late, from all these nutty hormones and skin getting tighter as baby keeps growing, so I've been extremely diligent about staying moisturized to help combat that (and stretch marks, of course). These are my favorite products I've used all of pregnancy for my skin and believe me, I've tried MANY.

The prettiest pink dress I wore to a recent baby shower. I will most definitely be wearing this again and again during the last weeks of pregnancy!

I love sharing what things I'm loving and always want to hear what my girlfriends are loving, too. So if you've got a great thing to share, by all means, don't hold out on us!

 Wishing everyone a happy and safe long weekend.
