A Few of My Favorite Things: August 2014

A Few of My Favorite Things August

A Few of My Favorite Things for August have been:

1. The Killing:
UH-mazing show. I recently started watching this on the Netflix.
Gunna be honest the first episode was not very exciting but Husband and I
kept watching. Now we are hooked & we want to move to Seattle.
If you are into murder/mystery thriller types then this is a show for you.

2. Makeup Geek's Mermaid Eyeshadow:
This eyeshadow is freaking gorgeous and has been making me feel like a
well….a mermaid! Its a lovely smoothy shimmery aqua. I'll do a brown smokey eye
and use MUG Mermaid as a lower lash line pop of color.

3. MAC Coppering Eyeshadow:
Ugh. This shadow is one I had in my mind to purchase for awhile.
I finally did. It truly is beautiful. Such a rich shimmery copper.
Just Coppering on the lid (applied with finger) with a black winged liner is stunning!

4. The Harry Potter Movies
I was stunned to hear that my beautiful, amazing husband
had not seen or even READ the Harry Potter series.
So I made it our mission to at least watch all the movies this month.
Its been wonderful re-watching all the films & revisiting the joys of my youth.
Next we are going to read the whole series because he can't go on
without reading such amazingness or….Avada Kedavra!

5. Benefit Cosmetics Coralista
I had some Ulta points and a coupon I was dying to use
so I finally got my first Benefit Cosmetics product. I swatched a few of
their blushes and ended up taking Coralista home.
Its nothing new for many beauty freaks but I'm loving my new blush in a box.

6. Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Lipstick in Fig
I kept seeing beauty gurus wear this and talk about this new product.
The Melted lipsticks come in many outstanding colors, but Fig
caught my eye. Its a muted purple, mauve tone.
Applies like a lipgloss, but has major amped up color power.

7. MAC lipstick in Sushi Kiss
gorgeous. I did a cute little post on this lipstick so you can check it out
here for details: Sushi Kiss
Basically, this has been my fun summer orangey color. love it!

8. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Rush
I don't know or really give a hoot who Kylie Jenner is, but I have been digging
all the "inspired" looks beauty YouTubers have been doing. Being a 90's kid
I totally get. This lip color, Rush is the perfect brown/mauvey nude for my skin tone.

9. Roxy Shoes
Just got these suckers from a Sport Chalet Tent Event sale thing.
Normally $64 I stole them for $14.95. BOOM!
They are so comfy and absolutely adorable. I love the rustic grey and inside floral print.

10. Frida Khalo T-Shirt
I walked into a Forever 21 and had a moment when I saw this shirt.
I literally saw it, pointed up to the wall across the store at it, grabbed, bought it
and its been my favorite shirt this month ever since.
Frida is amazing. One of my favorite artists.

11. The Sims 3
And here has been my obsession this month.
I used to play the original Sims and then played Sims 2 for
awhile, but then my piece of poo PC gave out.
So I was very excite to discover they finally mad Sims 3 compatible
for Mac. I downloaded it lickity split. And well golly
its better than ever and so much fun!!

I hope this will help discover new favorites of your own!
