August Favorites

FullSizeRender (10)

So for this favorites post, I don’t have a ton of beauty products to share. I have a lot of random products and accessories to share instead. I also share some TV and literature stuff here too, so hopefully you enjoy the mixed bag of favorites I will be sharing.FullSizeRender (9)

So I’ve been using this Lancome Blush Subtil, which is an oil free blush and I love how understated and rosy this color is. On darker skin, it pops just enough. A lot of the times, I’ll see blushes in vibrant colors and it just doesn’t work on my skin tone. The shimmer on this is also amazing. The second product is the Lancome Youth Activating Eye Cream, and it’s awesome if you have dark circles. You just need a little dime size amount to dab around your eyes.FullSizeRender (8)

This $7.99 watch is rubber and it is from Joyce Leslie. I have a rose gold watch, which I love, but it’s not versatile to wear every day. This one is nice because it’s rubber and easy to wear everyday. I also love this nude color with the gold on this watch. Also, I’ve been obsessed with gold rings as well. I’ve been loving the ring trend, where people wear tons of rings on one hand. These ones were $5.00 from Rue21 and if you don’t want them to turn your finger green, use some clear nail polish on them.FullSizeRender (7)

This was a cute notebook for a buck at Michael’s. It’s small enough to take everywhere so I’ve been jotting homework and blog ideas in here. If you’re a writer like myself, take one of these around everywhere you go.FullSizeRender (11)

This was a book I read during the month of August. Here’s my full review here:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/book-review-since-youve-been-gone/ Overall, I really loved the message of this book. It’s about living your life to the fullest around the people that make you happy. The main character goes through some serious growth and the love interest is a fantastic character as well.FullSizeRender (13)

These sunglasses were $2.00 from Wet Seal, and I just kind of threw them in my basket because they were cheap. But if you’re nervous to try these kinds of retro sunglasses, these are great. I wear them everywhere.

stranger things

This was my show of the summer. It was so amazing. Also, here’s my full review:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/review-lets-talk-about-stranger-things-season-1/ I love these kids. I want Millie, Finn, Caleb and Gaten to be my best friends. They’re fantastic, and the plot is pretty original with little homages to movies like E.T and Super 8.

Anyway, I know my list if random, but I hoped you enjoyed it! 🙂

I got this Roller Coster romper for $14.99 at Marshalls and I just really loved the fit. The way the front panels were sewn really flatters an hourglass figure, and the frills on the end add a very playful whimsical feel. The nude colored watch was from Rainbow and it was only $8.99 on sale. I love this one because it’s not too flashy to wear everyday.

Christmas Wishlist

I have not blogged in ages because I’ve been  busy with school, but I decided to end the year with a handful of posts. I wanted to share a Christmas Wishlist with some of my favorite Pinterest finds. Here are some of my clothing and accessory finds that I’ll be looking for this season.

 

Red Batwing Long Sleeve Loose Knit Sweater:

Chunky Sweater – I have so many chunky knits, but I especially love the long baggy sweaters. They’re comfortable to wear with just leggings and converse, but they also work for dressier occasions with skirts or statement necklaces.

Laura McKittrick, The Greenwich Girl: a luxury lifestyle brand and digital magazine www.thegreenwichgirl.com:

Long Cardigan– When I first started seeing these long cardigans, I didn’t initially like them, but after seeing how people wear them, I want one. They’re great to wear over any outfit. I’ve also seen people wear them with skirts and dresses too.

Zoe Leather Look Leggings:

Leather Leggings– This is a trend I’ve wanted for a while. I didn’t really like leather until my mom bought me a burgundy pair of  leggings with leather panels on the sides. For the wintertime, these leggings would be great for playing around with textures.

ASOS Ribbed Cropped Turtleneck:

Crop Top– I love crop tops. The fit is great on my shape. However, for the winter, they’re not functional. These cropped ribbed sweaters are perfect because they’re warm, but still have a crop top fit.

Chunky watch with delicate bracelets.:

Watch– I’ve really wanted a nice watch for a while. I just haven’t found the right one. I love the over sized ones and think they look great with dainty layered bracelets.

 

12. Ombre - 12 Cute DIY IPhone Cases ... | All Women Stalk:

Phone Case– I need a new phone case. So far, I’ve gone through a couple cases, and they haven’t been anything special. On Amazon, they have so many designs and patterns to choose from. 

Easy wallet pattern from a single fat quarter! By Dog Under My Desk:

Wallet– When I run errands, I like to carry a smaller bag, and it’s hard to find a wallet that’s small and still has the necessary compartments. 

Hope you liked the list! If you liked any of the items from above, I left the link to each of the pins.

I love how summery these light distressed jeans are. They pair great with darker colors, and I thought this short sleeved crop top with flowers was perfect with these jeans. Both pieces make a statement so I paired the outfit with a simple watch and my favorite converse.

Romwe Jeans: $11.95

Crop Top from Kohls: $8.00

Hope you liked this quick post!
