August 2016 Faves & Updates

Hello lovelies! I woke up this morning with the sudden realization that it's significantly darker out when my alarm goes off at 6 am. The long, sunny days of summer are mostly behind us, and while I'm all about fall, I'm also pretty unhappy about feeling like a zombie before work every day. Maybe I need one of those alarm clock lights that mimic the rising sun...'re here to chat beauty (not just to hear me lament the end of my favorite season)! I tried to reel in my shopping in August, knowing that I'm going to Generation Beauty in New York later this month. Words cannot express how excited I am to spend an entire weekend reveling in all things beauty (really though, I feel like a kid waiting for Christimas). So, in the spirit of trying to keep things under control and to make room for lots of epic GenBeauty swag, I've kept things pretty minimal in the last month. Curious to see what made the cut? Keep reading to find out!

Olivia Palermo x Ciate London Smokey Suedes Eyeshadow Palette *SOLD OUT* ($19.50) // A collection of 9 gorgeously pigmented, buttery eyeshadows that are just to die for. Since this one seems to have already flown off the shelves, I'd recommend checking out the Smouldering Palette, instead! 

Formula 10.0.6 Wipe Your Face Off Makeup Removing Facial Wipes ($5.99) // These affordable face wipes do an awesome job of removing makeup, and they totally smell like a dream!

Nuxe Shimmering Dry Oil ($36) // A ridiculously luxurious oil for face, body, and hair that will leave you looking like a glowing goddess.

Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Airblushing Blush in Natural ($7.19) // One of the most beautiful, easy to wear, can't-screw-up blushes I've ever come across!

Incoco Coconut Nail Polish Strips ($4.97) // These nail strips come in so many fun designs, are totally easy to apply, and will last chip-free for a week!

Capelli New York Head Wrap ($10) // My new signature headband!

As much as August was a great month, September is going to be BOMB! I'm so excited for all of the adventures to come in the next few weeks, and can't wait to share pictures and stories with all of you. Also, let me know if you're going to be at GenBeauty in New York. I would love to see you there!
