Beauty: August Favorites

12:00:00 AM Arianne 6 Comments

I'm so excited to share my beauty favorites for the month of August! I can't believe this month went by so fast. When I filmed the video, I kept saying July favorites. It wasn't until I was watching it back that I realized I filmed the wrong month! Anyway, if you want to find out what I've been loving, keep on reading :)

As you probably already know, I'm obsessed with this color. It's neutral and lasts for most of the day when I use my Rimmel lip liner underneath.

I originally hauled this product in my latest vlog. I instantly fell in love with it. As soon as it the cotton pad makes contact with my face, it feels instantly soft and hydrated. I would wake up the next morning and my face feels the healthiest it's ever been!

I learned that I have to use this on 2nd day hair in order to have 3rd day hair. It makes my hair look healthy. I can't, however, go beyond 3rd day hair. The oil in my scalp cannot be fixed by the dry shampoo and my hair becomes very heavy resulting in a very tender scalp if I try to go for 4th day hair. Basically, my head feels like I've just been in a cat fight and my opponent pulled the blimmin' hell out of my hair.

Covert Affairs - I think I've been watching this show for about 1-2 years now. I found out about it because I unknowingly worked with one of the main characters when I worked in Los Angeles. I didn't know I was working with Christopher Gorham in the YouTube movie Yellow Face until I got home. Even then, he had the kind of charisma that you just can't look away from. I decided to watch this song and was hooked. Piper Perabo's character Annie was strong mentally and physically. I just LOVE her. This show overall capitalizes on powerful women I think.
The seasons are on sale right now - the lowest they've ever been! You better believe I took advantage of it and got the first two seasons ;)
Yellow Face - Part 1 | Part 2 - leave in the comments if you watch the movie and spot me :)

Pandora - I have been listening to Today's Hits and Jojo radio in Pandora for the month of August. Some of my favorite songs are Fancy and Black Widow by Iggy Azalea, Break Free by Ariana Grande, and Chandelier by Sia. I've also been loving every single song on David Archuleta's album thanks to Jojo radio.

Dinner - Lean Cuisine has a dish called Tortilla Crusted Fish. This is my favorite frozen dinner of all time! I've also tried Saffron Road's Chicken Biryani. It's not as good as the original, but it'll do.

Chips - I've been OBSESSED with veggie chips. They're so addicting because I don't feel guilty eating them. They're made of spinach, tomato, and potato. I ate 5 bags of chips this month. On the third week, I decided to buy two bags thinking it was a good idea so I wouldn't have to go to the store again. Instead, I ate two bags in one week. I like the Sprouts and Trader Joe's store brands :)

Here's a video if you'd rather see me talk about the products above :)

I hope you enjoy this favorites post!
