August favorites

This month Jake and I discovered Trader Joes. And by discover I mean we have obviously heard of it before and I think I have even been in one once, but this time we actually shopped there and bought one of almost everything. So far it has not disappointed. My favorites are the Gnocchi(gorgonzola and the sorrentina are both delicious), the chicken potstickers, the raspberry and cream popsicles, “Inner Peas” and their blood orange soda. The Gnocchi is my new favorite food and favorite go to meal because its so quick. I just add frozen peas during the last 2 minutes of heating (you know to balance out the meal) and its pretty much the yummiest mac and cheese ever!

We also bought a PS4 because hello CRASH BANDICOOT! Basically the best game ever was remastered and is the original 3 games all on one disc. Its awesome.

As for what I’m watching…obviously Game of Thrones because I’m always watching or re-watching that show. Just finished the season 3 finale again and loving it because I feel like thats the season when things really start to pick up. The other show that I was pleasantly surprised by was Ozark which is on Netflix. It is so so good!

I started listening to audio books in the car, since we commute for school. Ive been listening to “The Subtle Art of not giving a Fuck” and I really like it so far.

I’m reading Game of Thrones to fill the void until the next season comes out. Its a whole new experience, reading compared to watching.

Last is this rose gold necklace from Made by Mary. Its my favorite necklace ever! Super cute and you can have them personalized to make them extra special 🙂

Hope you all had a great weekend!



Current Makeup Favorites


Growing up I was never interested in make up. Unless you count Lip Smackers (remember those?) because I always had about 172 different flavors of that stuff 🙂 but seriously, besides for wearing mascara to school dances I never wore ANY make up. But over the last 2 years I’ve come to really enjoy discovering and trying new brands and products. So today I’m sharing with you my current makeup favorites that I’ve really been loving!

POREfessional – Hands down my absolute favorite make up product ever. It’s the first thing I put on because it does an excellent job of smoothing out your face so your foundation doesn’t sink into your pores. ps. It smells divine!

Hello Flawless Liquid Foundation – This foundation is great for if you are wanting a lighter and brighter coverage. It has SPF 25 and I love that it doesn’t take away from my natural look. (I also have this foundation for days that I want a fuller coverage and its great as well) And I use this Brush to apply my foundation and it works super well!

Tarte Pro Glow Palette – My most recent purchase that I fell in love with after one use. The whole thing is awesome and It includes my favorite highlighter to date called “Burst” Its the best!

The last two are awesome because you can get them at Target and they are this mascara and this blush! I don’t wear blush all the time but I wanted to include this one because its so pretty. And thats all I wear when I do decide to do my make up which is pretty much Tuesdays and Thursdays because those are the days I go to school haha 🙂
