August seemed to be the first month in a while where things slowed down. Maybe because August is just a “eh” month. Nothing against it but there ins’t really anything going on in August. No holidays. No back to school shopping if you’re an adult. Nada. Sure, I know personally I had a few things going on and my mom’s birthday is today (Happy Birthday, Mom!). For the most part this month was just slow going. That does mean that there was plenty of time to find and get deep into some monthly favorites!
Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette by Morphe– I’m a little late to this party but I have been loving this palette. It gives you pretty much everything you could need in a palette, especially if you’re traveling and have the space for it. You have the basic neutrals, beautiful shimmers, and some fun pops of color! Plus, the pigment is pretty great! No complaints here! I’ll definitely be picking up one of the vault mini palettes that goes along with it that just came out!
I have a few songs for this month’s favorites but the singles from Trench keep dropping and I am living for it. October can’t come soon enough!
Now, I’m not generally a huge fan of podcasts. I usually only listen to them when I’m in the car with Tim or my mom who both like to listen to them while driving. I’m more of a music person but lately, I’ve been listening to podcasts while at my desk or, shocker, in the car! Thanks to my mom though, I’ve really gotten into the pods from Crooked Media, specifically Pod Save America and Lovett or Leave It. Run by former staffers for President Obama, these guys know what they’re talking about and masterfully infuse humor in with their analysis of the week’s biggest political news stories.
