August Monthly Favorites

Hey Guys!! Can you believe September is here already?? Where did the summer go? Well, its 94 degrees today so it is still trying to hold on. I usually do videos for my monthly favorites but my poor laptop is still in the shop and I'm hoping it can be up and running soon. So since I'm on borrowed computers, it will be a regular post. I didn't have too many favorites last month but I really loved these items and used them the whole month.

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Eye Shadow Primer- I got this at IMATS and this paired with my MAC paint pot works wonders. My shadows don't move or crease and stay all day.

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Pure Pigment Eye Dust in Flambe, Cafe Au Lait and Peek-A-Boo- I will be doing a more in depth post and review on the Jesse's Girl items I got from IMATS but I'm in love this these pigments. They are so pigmented and I love the container it comes in. It makes it impossible not to spill the whole container. Plus, they are so affordable. These are on my list for repurchase at IMATS next year lol!

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner- I watch a lot of Julie G on You Tube and she uses this eyeliner in almost every tutorial she does. I finally got around to using this and I love this eyeliner!! Once you apply it, it does not go anywhere until you wash your face. It stays pigmented all day and the color does not fade. The felt tip pen also makes it so easy to apply, it's great for beginners.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara- I did a full review on this and other Smashbox items last month. This mascara has become a new favorite on mine. I love how it defines my lashes and makes them look so long and full. I have two sample size ones to use up before repurchasing the full size.

So that is it for my August Monthly Favorites. What were your favorites last month? Have you tried any of my favorites before? Comment below and let me know.

So sad I didn't get any Funnel Cake or Cotton Candy this weekend.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
