  • M.A.C Studio Fix Powder – It has been so hot and humid here in Hawaii. Lately, the last thing I want to do is put on foundation. This powder is great at evening out the skin and giving light coverage. Fun fact: this was actually the first real face powder I ever purchased…all these years later it is still a favorite of mine.
  • Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector – This is my first ever traditional highlight. I am so glad I waited, because I truly see what all the fuss is about. Good quality highlights really do make you look like you’re glowing. I apply this with a $3 ELF brush I got at target. They have the BEST brushes. Winning combo right here! Plus, I have used this as an eye shadow… Yep! Amazing.
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel – Even my brow routine has been simple. I am usually a powder/set with gel kinda gal, but lately with my no-fuss look I have been just combing some tinted brow gel through. This keeps them in place, takes about 30 seconds and you’re done.   If I don’t use the tinted version, I have the clear one as well that is also just as nice.

Lip:

DSC_0212Benetint – Now, technically this isn’t a lip product. This is a general stain that you can use on the cheeks too. But, this has been a go-to for me this month. It gives a nice rosy color when it sets and is really subtle. This just keeps it all so simple.

Kingsman: The Secret Service – This movie was so fun! Saw it this month and have been recommending it to everyone. Some really cool action scenes plus it was funny. Good one.

Friday Night Lights – A friend of mine is a guru of amazing TV shows. She had been recommending this show forever. I just started to watch this in August…WOW. Yes, the central theme is football, however, this is a classic teenage drama. Relationships, family drama, coming of age stories, humor…TIM RIGGINS. This show has it all. Did I mention Tim Riggins? Oh, yea. Sorry.

Fashion:

IMG_8302Kate Spade Bag- I can’t link this, as I received it in the mail form a friend. She randomly sent this bag to me and I have been rocking this nonstop. It’s the perfect size and perfect for summer.  You can wear it on your shoulder or tuck in the strap for a cute clutch.

Random Bonus Item:

93ac52b463ec0a778cf038beb1c26de5Bikram Yoga – I will write a more in depth post on this soon, but for now I will just note this as a favorite.   Every single time I finish a class I feel so refreshed. This class is so challenging and so hot, but they pay-off is incredible. Those 90 minutes completely rejuvenate me and make me feel alive.
