July Favorites

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

I know, I know, I'm a little late on this one. We are nearly halfway through August already. How did that happen?

This is my first monthly favorites post but I always enjoy reading them so I thought I might as well do my own! All of the items listed below were all discovered in the month of July and just so happen to be items that stand out and ones that will be repurchased!

Trader Joe's Truffle Marcona Almonds |

Holy moly, these are good. They are so potent that they only require literally a handful. I love playing the guessing game with other people and make them try them and guess what flavor they are. I usually get "garlic" as an answer. These are a great addition to a meat and cheese plate or on top of a salad.
So, so good. 

Maybelline Baby Lips Gloss |

You might remember this post, but I am still loving this gloss. It is a perfect color for summer and makes my lips much smoother. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational |

This mascara has been all over YouTube, so I am blaming YouTube for this purchase. You all know that I will never give up my favorite mascara. But, you also know that I use two mascaras for layering. I usually use a less expensive (cue in the Lash Sensational), as a base coat, then top it off with my favorite. This is a very wet mascara, which I love, and does a great job of separating and lengthening my lashes. 

| Target Lamp |

I was on a search for what seems like eternity for a lamp for our living room. We have been rocking Andrew's college floor lamp for years and years, and it had to go. I love how this brings a modern twist to our rustic living room. 

Stella and Dot Renegade Bracelet |

I went to one of my friend's Stella and Dot trunk shows a few weeks back and sadly only walked away with this. Again, a cult favorite and wouldn't necessarily be something I thought I'd ever purchase, but I love it. It has quickly become a daily piece of my arm candy and looks so good stacked with this and this

| Three Tier Jewelry Stand |

I have been searching for a new jewelry stand, and this happened to be on sale at Target, so in my red basket it went. It is perfectly feminine and has sweet touches of gold throughout. All of my staple items that I wear daily live on this stand such as my Tory earrings, watch, wedding bands and bracelets mentioned above.

| Necklace Stand |

Like the favorite above, it was on sale and so feminine with a touch of gold, so in my red basket it went. My necklaces no longer get tangled and are nicely layered so that I can see all of them.

| Face Wipes |

I am not a huge fan of using face wipes as my only source to take off my makeup and try to use my Clarisonic a few times a week. However, there are many nights where I am lazy so a face wipe is a must. I have used these in the past, but kind of forgot about then and recently tried them again. They will be a repeat purchase because they smell nice and do not dry out easily.

| Yeti Rambler |

So technically, I got these for Andrew's 30th birthday, but I love them. I haven't used it for coffee yet because Andrew doesn't drink coffee and doesn't want the cup to smell like coffee, so there. It literally keeps ice overnight. It doesn't sweat with condensation and keeps your drink very cold! I might just have to buy one for myself and use for coffee because apparently your coffee will never get cold!

Do y'all like these kinds of posts? I think it's a great way to see what's new and what other people like…at least I know I am speaking for myself!

I hope y'all have a great day! I've been sick so hopefully I can kick this sinus infection into next week!



  1. I love that lamp! It would go so perfectly in my living room. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  2. That is definitely my favorite drug store mascara!!! I love that jewelry stand - I need it lol! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  3. The Yeti Rambler looks like something that I need to buy, especially if it keeps things cold for that long! Nothing stays cold in Columbia :) But I'm with Andrew - keep the coffee out!

  4. I need to look into the Yeti cup. I had when my drinks sweat and make a mess. I had a Stella and Dot trunk show last year and the Renegade was the first piece I went for. It takes any arm party up a notch. I blame half of my makeup purchases on YouTube. I see so great things on there that I feel like I have to go get them. That mascara was a great find though!

  5. The yeti hold coffee super well! I take coffee to work in the morning and then rinse and put ice water in it in the afternoon. No coffee smell at all! We've been using ours for probably 4-5 months now and can't tell that it has coffee in it At all!
