Monthly Favorites // August, 2014.

This is my first Favorites Post here on the blog and I'm super excited! This month was all about rediscovering old favorites for me. I think it's important to go through your closet and makeup drawers once in a while so you don't forget all the good stuff you already have. And that's exactly what I did this month! I pulled out things I didn't even remember purchasing and it was awesome. I'm gonna stop rambling, let's get to the favorites!

Michael Kors "Jet Set" Crossbody Bag //  I've had this bag for years and had maybe worn it a couple of times. So, last weekend as I was packing for our weekend getaway I found it on the back of my closet and I decided to take it with me. I honestly had forgotten how much I love this bag! It's so versatile and practical. You can take it everywhere with you and avoid the problems of taking your entire makeup bag in your bag (which is something I've done on previous occasions.) It only has room for the essentials. I recently styled it in a previous post if you want to check it out.

MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo // I can honestly say that this is my favorite lipstick. Summer, Spring, Winter or Fall, I always menage to incorporate it on my makeup look. It's the perfect red color for my skin color and I think this would work for a lot of different skin tones. It also lasts forever on the lips, you can kiss, eat or drink and this lipstick is not going anywhere - but like, full on make out.. Love this formula!

Bioderma // I have to admit that when I bought it I didn't really know how to use it. But as you start to try it out more you get the hang of it and find out how it works best for you. In my case, I use it as a makeup remover and let me tell you it takes of everything. I don't even feel the need to go wash my face after and for a lazy girl like me that's always a plus. I just put a little on a cotton pad or a baby wipe and rub in gently on the face and eyes. I know it's a little bit expensive but I think it's worth it!

Cetaphil // My skin has been all over the place. Sometimes dry, sometimes oily with dry patches, crazy crazy.. But one thing that always saves me in Cetaphil. In my opinion, it's the best moisturizer in the world. I know a lot of people only use it as a body lotion, but I really like it as a face moisturizer. I use it mostly as a night cream, before going to bed because it's a heavy duty moisturizer and it does leave your skin feeling a little greasy. But, you just need to wash your face it in the morning and you're good to go. Can't recommend it enough!

I am Malala // This book got me crying from the introduction. But don't get me wrong it's a beautiful and inspiring story. I haven't finished yet but I can already tell that I'm gonna love it. It gets you thinking on how much we take things for granted and how much we need to be grateful for everything we have. It's a must read !

Those are all my favorites for the month of August. I tried to mention only the things that I've been really loving this month and since I've been doing a lot of sightseeing the past few weeks I've been keeping the makeup to a minimum and sticking with my staples when it comes to skin care.

Do you have any favorites this month?!
