August Favorites

I cannot believe August is coming to a close. I am definitely not ready for summer to be over yet! ūüė¶ On that note though, it is time for a monthly favorites post.

This month I was loving:

Trader Joes Coconut Oil

This stuff is so good to use as lotion. It is so moisturizing and smells amazing! It is also all natural and has no chemicals like some lotions.

Alba Sunscreen

Alba Aloe Vera Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 <p><strong>From the Manufactuer's Label:</strong></p><p>Water Resistant</p><p>Paraben Free</p><p>UVA/UVB Protection</p><p>Aloe Vera Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 manufactured by Alba Botanica.</p> 4 oz Each  $7.29

 This sunscreen is free of parabens and other harmful chemicals. It prevents me from burning and also rubs on smooth without being super greasy like some other products. After reading The Cookie Chrunicles article on sunscreen, I became more mindful of the products I was buying and started switching to less chemical laden sunscreens.


In the Glam Bag:

You received the below items in your August Glam Bag, crafted for you via ipsyMatch. Learn more

Coastal Scents
Shadow Palette Sample


Jersey Shore Sun
Mongongo Lip Conditioner


Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk


Manna Kadar Cosmetics
Sheer Glo


Urban Decay
24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil

I received the above five products in my first Ipsy package that I received this month. I am not much of a makeup wearer, but after hearing reviews of this subscription service, I decided to give it a try. They send you a makeup bag full of 4-5 products every month, for $10. So far, I have used the chapstick and the eyeliner. I like both of them. We will see what I get in the next few months to determine if I want to keep the service.

Forever 21 Scoop Back Romper


I bought this romper from Forever 21 a few weeks ago when it was super hot and I needed something light and airy to wear. It is so comfortable and easy to throw on over a bathing suit or great for running errands in. It can also be worn very casual or dressed up as well.

Cookie Dough Bites

Running with Spoons posted a cookie dough bites recipe this month that I LOVE! I make it a few times a week and eat them as snacks throughout the day. They are great.

These are the things I have been loving this month. Happy end of August and I will talk to you soon in September. So weird! I cannot believe this month is already over. Happy Sunday and Labor Day!

  1. I love the coconut oil as a moisturizer, it’s amazing! Thanks for sharing my link – I hope more people learn a bit about what’s in our skincare products and use the info to make healthier choices. I like Alba products a lot.
