August Beauty Crushin’ – My Beauty Favorites

Let’s talk about some of my favorite beauty products, shall we? :) We shall! So, the first product that I’ve been using nightly is the Simple Micellar Make-up Remover Wipes. Simple sent me some to try out and I LOVE them. I love the make-up remover wipes simply because I’m lazy and they make taking my make-up off at night an easy breasy task. I like the softness of these wipes and it just makes my skin feel clean which is the bomb.dot.com in my book.

Have y’all seen the new butterLONDON and Allure collaboration via Nail Polish? I got a sneak peek sent to me and I’m in LOVE! They are calling the Nail Lacquer collection Arm Candy and they are the perfect shades for fall. My all time favorite shade is Disco Nap which is a charcoal glitter. My second favorite shade in the Arm Candy collection…Statement Piece which is an opaque orange red, crème. They are both GORGEOUS shades!!

Are you familiar with blenders? I know there are a few different brands of make-up blenders but my go-to (and a cheaper version!) is Ulta’s Super Blender Sponge. I use it to help blend in my foundation and it works just like I hope it would! It’s basically 2-sided. One to get into the creases and one larger side that helps blend in across the planes of your face.

One of my go-to lip balms are those little EOS Egg shaped spheres. My favorite flavor is the Lemon Drop. I usually put it on my lips before I go to bed and then after I brush my teeth in the morning. I’m obsessed with having my lips wet (aka not dry) all the time and balms and glosses are my jam because it makes me think they are wet, but they are really just balmed up or glossed up. Anyways, I’m weird, I know. I also like that EOS Spheres have an SPF in them!

Loving the Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush Mascara. I love how it pumps up the volume on my lashes!! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed my lashes thinning out a bit. I’m trying not to wear a ton of mascara in hopes that I can resurrect them somehow, but when I do reach for the mascara, this is what I’m grabbing!

Looking for a great nude lippy? One of my favs is this Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Sky Line Pink. It’s got a great pearl color to it and I think it really compliments my skin tone!

Have you ever tried an at-home Micro-Dermabrasion? I’ve tried a few and I keep going back to the Bliss Micro Magic. It’s got a great minty smell and feel and I can feel it sloughing off the dead skin off my face. I use it once-a-week. Great stuff for an at-home treatment!

And last but not least…my go-to eye shadow quad is from Clinique. It’s the Clinique All About Shadow Quad called Jenna’s Essentials. Love the looks I can create from this palette!

So, there you have it! My current beauty favorites! What are some of your beauty favorites right now??

Red, White & Screwed by Holly BushRed White and Screwed
Political strategist Glenda Nelson is having a meltdown. Her handpicked, very married Congressional candidate was just caught climbing out of the window of the Sleepytown Motel, and her philandering ex-husband seems to have the most to gain from the colossal scandal that follows. As Glenda attempts to salvage the campaign in a hotly contested race, conservative and liberal pundits pounce on the story to further their own agendas.

Glenda’s love life is nonexistent to say the least, that is, until she meets handsome artist Chris Goodwich. Chris’s easy-going, carefree outlook on life couldn’t be more different than the 90-mph crazy train that is Glenda’s, but the more time she spends with him, the more she craves his calming presence, his sexy smile, and his steamy embraces. Is Chris worth taking a chance on?

Between the pressure of full-blown spin control mode, rapidly declining job security, refereeing two teenagers, caring for aging parents, and spending hours on her therapist’s couch trying to get past her ex’s crushing betrayal, Glenda finds love and makes the long trek back to happy.

Fool for Love by Beth CiottaFool for Love
SHE’S CRAVING A SWEET NEW LIFE…

Call her a fool, but chef-in-training Chloe Madison wants to have her cake and eat it too. So when her boyfriend dumps her for some French tart, she decides to start over from scratch—with a new life and job in Sugar Creek, Vermont. What could be sweeter than cooking for an eccentric lady who’s crazy for desserts? What could be more tempting than joining a club called the Cupcake Lovers? Just one thing: local business-hunk Devlin Monroe…

AND HE’S THE ICING ON THE CUPCAKE

Although he’s the grandson of Chloe’s fun-loving boss, Devlin Monroe is all work and no play. Micro-managing the family business, he doesn’t have time to indulge in life’s sweetest pleasures—until he meets Chloe. How can he resist such a vibrant, beautiful woman who brings so much passion to the table? But when old grudges and secrets threaten to destroy the Cupcake Lovers, Devlin must decide if his feelings for Chloe are a recipe for disaster—or a sinfully delicious ever-after…

2. What books do you have on request at the library? or What books have you just picked up lately?
Ohhh…I’ve been approved for a few fun ones on NetGalley. So that’s what I’ve added to my list. Even though my list is a mile long. I’ve also received a few in the mail to review that sound fun. Here are the newest additions:
Dear Carolina by Kristy Woodson Harvey
Accidental Happiness by Meredith Rachek
Becoming Ellen by Shari Shattuck
X by Sue Grafton
A Window Opens by Elisabeth Egan
Fairytale Beginnings by Holly Martin
The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone
The Scam by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
I’m definitely going the several at once route. One physical book and one Kindle book. I keep my Kindle with me at all times. It’s smaller than most paperbacks that I read. So I usually have more than 1 story going at all times. See my first answer. 😉

4. What makes you love a book?
If it can hook me in within the first few pages…story, writing, characters. Then I’m going to probably love it. I like to be swept away by books. I don’t like feeling like it’s a chore to read. I don’t like books where the writing feels stilted or the writer is trying to hard. I felt that recently in a book but finally the author picked up her groove a bit and it didn’t turn out so bad.

5. This one is totally random but Fall is just around the corner and we want to know…what’s your favorite cookbook?
I love the Pioneer Woman Cookbooks. But I also like any cookbooks that have comfort food in them: chilis, stews, hearty soups. I watch a lot of Food Network and Cooking Channel, so if I see something inspiring, then I’ll go try and recreate it. I have a ton of cookbooks, but usually derive inspiration from Food Network/Cooking Channel/Pinterest.

Okay, now it’s your turn!
