Best Buys of August

Happy September everyone! I know we are a few days into the month already, but with this heat wave I'm having a hard time remembering it isn't still August, haha. Anyone else?! Regardless, September is upon us, and I wanted to use the opportunity to start a new blog series - my favorite finds from each month. I few other bloggers do this series, and I always really enjoy knowing what they truly used and loved each month, so I thought I would do the same. 

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

First up, a big favorite this month is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I purchased Duck Egg Blue, a gray blue color, and a gray taupe color named French Linen. I used the blue on a bathroom shelf and the gray on our hall table. It only took me 2 coats to refinish the furniture, and the color is opaque and makes the pieces look brand new. Would anyone like to see pictures? 

Supergoop Setting Spray

Next, I have used this Makeup Setting Spray spray every day all month long. I use it at home and keep it in my bag to use throughout the day. It is so easy to reapply, and it doesn't mess up your makeup. It comes in a travel size too to take in your purse. 

Third, I adore my new handbag - the Salvatore Ferragamo Vara bag in navy. We purchased it while in Italy to save money with the VAT refund, and it is the perfect handbag. The strap converts between a shoulder bag and a cross body, it fits all my daily essentials, and I love the bow detail. I also love having a dark blue bag to match my wardrobe for fall and winter.

Rifle Paper Co. Agenda

Fourth is my new Agenda - I wanted to start off the fall feeling more organized and put together. I purchased this agenda so that I could keep track of my month at a glance along with my daily to do list. My old system involved a lot of scraps of paper, and I would feel like the forest was getting lost for the trees. This agenda is already making a big difference, and I love that the cute print doubles as home decor. 


Fresh Sugar Spice

Finally, my Fresh Sugar Spice Lip Color. I generally have a lip color on repeat each season, and this fall it's going to be Spice by Fresh Sugar. The brand's lip products are my favorite because they are so hydrating and come in wearable yet pretty shades. This rose color is brand new, and the perfect autumn color. 

What did you fall in love with in August? Any new things you are excited to try in September?
