August 2019 Monthly Favorites

Hi Friends! I can’t believe how fast August went by and how we are already in September! I know I sound like a broken record but I honestly don’t remember half of freaking August. It flew by without a trace. Now that August is officially over, I can start decorating my house with all things Fall! I absolutely love Fall and wish that it could be way longer than way it is but I’ll take what I can get. Despite how fast August went by, I found some awesome things to add to my favorites list.

Sweet Tea & Hydrangeas August Monthly Favorites


Tarte Unleashed Eyeshadow Palette $39// I have been a huge fan of Tarte’s palettes for quite some time and this one does not disappoint. I love that they include neutral and pop of color shades to create several different looks. The shades are very pigmented and blend out effortlessly. I will have a full review, swatches and looks coming soon!

Mega Babe Thigh Rescue $14// Thigh chaffing is the worst! The ladies over at Influenced The Podcast praised how amazing this was, so I had to give it a try. Living in the south and wearing shorts/skirts while its over 100 degree can cause a little of chaffing, which is a serious pain in the butt. This stuff seriously is the BOMB! I have used it and had no issues with chaffing. I put a little on inside my thighs and go on about my day. Seriously get you some of this!

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter $44// I have become a fan of CT products over the last few months. I remember everyone raving about them and I told myself I really didn’t need anymore makeup. Well you see how well that talk worked out! I paired this on top of the CT Magic Foundation to give a little more coverage in certain places and to add a little more shine to my complexion. It’s lightweight and looks really great on the skin! I also used it with my Tarte Face Tape Foundation and it looked great as well. When I wear this, I get a ton of compliments on how great my makeup looks.

IGK 30,000 Feet Volume Powder Spray $32// When it comes to products that can add volume to my hair, I am down to try! I have used several other products from IGK and loved how my hair looked. I separate my hair into sections, spray a few pumps into my hair and then massage it into my hair. The formula of this powder is extremely light weight and not gritty. It adds a good amount of volume that is perfect for my fine hair.

Lizzo “Truth Hurts”- So I’m married but this song is my jam. It’s catchy and I can’t help but sing along to it.

Taylor Swift “You Need To Calm Down”-So I’ve enjoyed some of her songs here and there. I’ve never been a crazy fan because I feel like all her songs used to be about the same thing over and over again. But I will say that this song has me singing for sure!

I hope you all enjoyed my August Favorites as much as I enjoy sharing them with you all!

      Jordyn it’s a great spray! Gives my hair the little bit of volume it needs to not make it look flat on my head. Tarte has some amazing palettes!

    I’ve been hearing a LOT of good things about that foundation. Do you feel like it’d be good for someone with a lot of hyperpigmentation/acne who needs full-coverage? And gosh the IGK product must be great because $32 for something that tiny just feels bonkers to me haha! I gotta try it!

      The CT foundation is really good. I feel that its not quite overly full coverage but it does a good job at covering up a lot of things. I used their concealer and the flawless filter to add some extra coverage and it worked really well! Her stuff is expensive but well worth it. It is a small tube for sure but I found that it works well for me. I’ve used other powders and my hair felt gritty, with this it doesn’t.
