Hi all and happy August! Can you even believe it is already August?! Honestly I don’t even know where July went… but I did decide that this would be a great time to start a monthly favorites. I have seen a lot of bloggers do this and I thought it would be a great idea to easily share items and things that I have recently been LOVING! So we shall see how this one goes. I will be sharing a little bit about each item that I am loving and why. Hopefully you guys like it and if you do please let me know and also feel free to let me know if there is something you want to try or have been using and love also!
Lets start with some beauty and hair products.
One thing I have seriously been loving ALL summer is this CC cream from itCosmetics. They have 3 different kinds but the one I have been using and personally loving is the “CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40“. If you are like me and suffer from oily skin this is the perfect cc cream for you! It is tinted and has amazing coverage for a cc cream. Also it is not oily at all which is perfect for the summer time heat. I also love the fact that it has spf 40 because in the summer time you need all the protection you can get!
If you have been in the market for a cc cream or lightweight foundation for everyday wear I highly recommend this little bottle of goodness. Also if you are like me and you don’t like to commit to something until you know you LOVE it, you can always get free samples of ANYTHING at Sephora.
Moving on to my favorite hair product from this past month. If you know me well you know I am not big on washing my hair more than once a week. So dry shampoo is my holy grail and finding a REALLY GOOD one is like a second job for me. So when my hair girl introduced me to the one I have been using I legit fell in love with it!
I have a hard time finding a good dry shampoo mainly because I hate that a lot of them leave a white residue on my hair. But this one is soooo good and doesn’t leave any residue and also really gets the oils out of my hair. It is definitely a bit on the pricer side but if you are in the market for a good dry shampoo that is going to get the job done, this is a must try!
One more thing that I have been loving when it comes to beauty is my self tanner. I was always skeptical about trying out self tanners (cause I was afraid of looking orange) but this one is amazing and does not make you look orange AT ALL!
This is the one I have been using. It is the 2hr express in “dark”. I already have more of a natural dark tan so this just really helps my tan color pop. It lasts at least 5 days and literally develops in 2hrs. It is perfect of you are in a rush or also just lazy and hate waiting to shower like myself haha. I also love the original one as well and switch between the two. I just find myself gravitating towards this one more.
Next up some clothes (of course) well more like bikinis & dresses because that is really all that matters in the summer! I am just going to link a few of my favorite finds from Amazon lately…
& of course to go along with some new clothes ya definitely need a good portable steamer because well wrinkles suck haha
I found this little guy on Amazon during Amazon Prime Day. It had great reviews so I decided it was about time I get myself a nice little steamer because lets be real who actually irons anymore… but seriously this little thing is good and its super affordable even when it’s not on sale!
Moving on to some accessories, I have been really loving smaller bags lately just because it is a pain to carry so much in the summer with it being so hot out. So recently I have had this bag attached to my side. It is actually from the Nsale and is still on sale right now. Perfect for any time of the year and the style of it is so unique which I LOVE!
It also comes in a few other colors but this one and a greenish/blue color are still in stock. It is the perfect size to fit all the necessities while still being light and easy to carry!
& a few last things that obviously have to do with food and wine… so starting with the wine. I don’t actually have a wine to share although I have been all about Rose this summer. But I do have some adorable wine glasses that are perfect for anytime of the year!
I love this style of wine glass. Aside from it being so freaking cute, it also hold a decent amount of wine. & I mean that’s what really matters though… ami right?
Lastly, is a snack I just got introduced to this month but I have been LOVINGGGGG! & honestly so has everyone I have introduced to it. The best part of this company is they make allergy free healthy snacks, granolas and best of all brownies & blondies!
These are not all the flavors they have, they actually have so many delicious flavors and also some other goodies on their site as well. I will make sure to leave a clickable link here “The Safe & Fair Food Company” & also if you do choose to try any of their products out you can use my code “kaleandkardigans” at checkout for a special discount!
Well those are some of my favorite new finds that I have been absolutely LOVING this July! I hope you all enjoyed this and I can’t wait to continue doing these. Don’t forget to leave me some ideas for future posts down in the comments. I love to be able to help share things that you all are interested in too!
