Third month in a row that I’d posted a favorites later than intended. I’d apologize, but at this point it’s becoming a bad habit. Oh well. I would blame the hurricane, but let’s be real here. It’s pure procrastination. Continue Reading

Hello, internet friends.

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you know Hurricane Irma battered the west coast of Florida. As some of you probably know, I am currently living in the Sunshine State. I’ve been here for twenty years. Continue Reading

As bloggers, we must stay organized and on top of our posting schedules. We have notebooks and calendars brimming with ideas and schedules. Then life happens, and our attention gets pulled away. Even if we’re organized to perfection, something is bound to pop up and some things get pushed aside. Sometimes blogging gets thrown to the wayside. But all hope isn’t lost for us busy little bees.

God. Is it already September? I want to cuss. I try not to drop the f bomb on here, guys. But fudge. It’s September. I need it to slow the heck down and back the heck up. I feel like summer started yesterday. Now August is over and September is bursting through the doors like an uninvited guest. I’m not ready for the latter half of the year, but here it comes.

From clothes to food, and especially makeup.  I remember last years’ July Favorites was filled to the absolute brim with products I adored. Many of which I still use to this day. This year I calmed down a bit. I didn’t go buck wild, even though I really wanted to. There was no huge birthday haul. Only a couple products I splurged on. I feel like a lot of the stuff I got for my birthday weren’t truly enjoyed until this month. That means my August favorites will be a bit more extensive.

But quantity doesn’t mean quality. The products I fell in love with this month are some that have become staples in my beauty routine. Ones that I reach for almost every single morning. Here we go. My July favorites are here.
