How is it already September?! The months definitely fly by when you stay busy. I’d tell you what I’ve been up to lately but honestly… It’s the same as every other month. Just a lot of work, preparing for grad school apps and trying to socialize with the minimal time I have. There hasn’t been a lot of new and exciting things going on so let’s move on to my August 2017 favorites!

Elephante – Closer
First, the song “Closer” by Elephante was one of my August favorites. And no, not that one song by the Chainsmokers and Halsey.
Recently, I was introduced to Elephante‘s music. And instantly, “Closer (Feat. Bishøp)” became one of my favorite songs. I’ve had it on repeat all month. Just listen to the song and you’ll find out why!
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
Next, the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara was one of my August favorites.
I recently did an original vs. dupe post where I compared the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara to L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. SPOILER ALERT: I thought the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara was way better than the original. I love that it provides length, volume, and curl. I’ve been wearing the mascara lately and I’ll definitely be restocking in the near future.
Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum
Then, I rediscovered a favorite skincare product for August.
I recently rediscovered Valentia’s Night Revive Retinol Serum. Now that I’m in my late 20’s, I figured it’s time to step up my skincare routine. I’ve been using the retinol serum every other day and I can definitely see a difference overnight. I apply the serum before my moisturizer and I wake up with softer, smoother skin. I can’t wait to see more results over time!

Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray
Another product I recently rediscovered in August was the Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray. During the summertime, temperatures can go well over 100 degrees. Facial spray is an absolute essential for staying cool and freshening up. The Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray is my favorite because it smells lovely and refreshes my skin. I always keep it in my bag wherever I go. I wouldn’t be able to survive the summer without it!
Jose’s Taco Shop
Finally, I discovered a local taco shop that turned out to be one of my August favorites.
A few weeks ago, I went out to celebrate my friend’s birthday. None of us had eaten yet so we stopped for some tacos before going to the bar. My friend took us to a hole in the wall called Jose’s Taco Shop. Much to my surprise, the tacos tasted exactly like street tacos you’d get from a truck! What’s even better is their full bar of toppings you can choose and add yourself. I’ll definitely be going back!
So that’s it for my August favorites! I found a new favorite song, rediscovered past makeup and skincare favorites, as well as discovering a new local taco shop.
