August Favorites

Well y'all September is officially here and I could not be more excited. While I love summer and the time spent outdoors and at the beach, this summer was absolutely crazy and left my craving less travel a bit more down time. September will be a busy month including football games, a trip home to Maryland, and then off to San Francisco to see one of my best friends but all are very exciting and I can't wait. 

Today's post includes a few of my favorite things from this past month...

I received this product in last month's Ipsy bag and have been absolutely loving it. I ran out a few weeks ago and can already tell a difference in my skin from not using it every day. I added this serum to both my morning and night routine and was amazing by how clear and fresh my skin appeared just a few days after using it. 


Trader Joe's Cold Brew Coffee
Y'all... this is the holy grail of cold brew coffee. The past few weeks I have gotten into a terrible Starbucks habit, I mean 3-4 times a week. While I do love Starbucks, it can get a bit pricey; enter this amazing alternative. I am a coffee lover, I love the taste, the caffeine, pretty much everything about it, but I especially like my coffee strong. The best part of this coffee is that you only need a small amount and can add almond milk or your choice of creamer. I have been doing equal part coffee and plain almond milk every morning and haven't missed my Starbucks iced coffee once!


By no means do I need another scarf, in fact with my collection I probably don't need to buy another scarf for life and I would be just fine. With that being said, I absolutely love scarves- including this beauty currently on sale at Nordstrom. 

Trader Joe's Sesame Sticks
Now that I am back to making salads for lunch, these have been adding the perfect amount of crunch. While I can't say they are entirely nutritious, they are so yummy and make a good snack as well. 

Another favorite from my Ipsy subscription is this bronzer. It has the tiniest amount of shimmer but I swear it lasts all day and it super easy to apply. 

What are some of your favorites from August?

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann

I've been dying to try that Trader Joe's cold brew-everyone has been saying such good things about it. I think you need to get that scarf :) So cute!

I'm currently sipping the Trader Joe's cold brew as I read this. I also love it. I add equal parts concentrate, water and almond milk. Starbucks has an iced coffee in a jug that is not a concentrate so I don't add water to that. I probably like it a bit better than the Trader Joe's one. About $4/$5 for 8 servings. :)

I keep hearing all about that cold brew coffee.....I'm on a manor coffee kick lately, maybe I'll throw it in my cart next week
