August Favorites

Fall is closer than ever now that we've reached September. Of course, the heat waves which decided to arrive during the last two weeks of August haven't subsided. We've had some triple digits over here along with humidity and we are all pretty tired of it. Especially with the fall scents and flavors arriving in our favorite shops!

Some of you may have noticed that I've been including some non-fashion and beauty things in my monthly favorites. Things like events, a favorite snack or movie. What do you think? Should I continue doing them that way? With that said, here were some of my favorites from last month!

Mmm! I love the Pumpkin-goodness at Bath and Body Works. While I seem to get headaches from certain scents now (mostly their candles), I'm definitely ok with the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Triple Moisture Body Cream & Hand Soap. It's sweet but not overwhelming. It's a blend of fresh pumpkin, crisp apple and spiced vanilla.

Jason and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary on August 30th! We spent the day at Disneyland and had a wonderful time! The lines and crowds were surprisingly great with it being Labor Day weekend. We went on many rides, enjoyed our favorite clam chowder bread bowls and experienced the World of Color show! It makes me smile every time :)

The new Electro Baby Lips by Maybelline have been such a hit! Though a few shades are often scarce from the shelves, they've been a little easier to find. I think they are slightly more moisturizing than the original line and more pigmented. Pink Shock has been a delight to wear! You can see more photos here.

I love cereal. My new favorite is the lightly sweetened Quaker Whole Hearts cereal. It's delicious with a little milk and fresh blueberries (one one of the most antioxidant rich foods in the world). Definitely try it and let me know what you think!

What stood out to you the most last month? I'd love to know!
