August 2014 Favortes! Beauty, Books, Movies and More!

Hi everybody! I hope all of you had a great weekend and labor day! I can honestly say my three-day weekend consisted of me watching endless hours of football and eating potato chips but it was very relaxing. I am going to be sharing with y'all today all of the random things here and there that I have been LOVING this month! I have a pretty good mixture of beauty, fashion, books, movies, and random things. Enjoy!


Beauty
Merle Norman Lip Pencil in Cocoa Buff- This pencil is very similar to the MAC lip liner that people claim is what Kendall Jenner wears on her lips. I will say that even though I am not a fan of hers, I do love her staple lip color. This lip liner and lip color duo is the perfect dark nude that is so in style right now. I use this almost every day with some Nyx Butter Gloss and adore the finish!
Clinique All About Shadow Primer- This shadow primer isn't anything out of this world however it is the best one I have used. I haven't tried out a huge variety of eye primers because once I find one I like is stick to it but I recently purchased this and it does a great job keeping my eye makeup on all day and night! Magnificent!
Nyx Nude Wonder Pencil- I absolutely adore this product. I have seen a lot of different people use this nude eye liner on the waterline of their lower lashes but I never knew how I would like it on me and turns out, I adore it. I feel like stark white in your lower waterline is a little too harsh, however a nude like this one, works wonders in making your eyes look bigger! Really fantastic product for me this month!
Fashion
Brighton Watch- This brighton watch is probably my favorite watch I own. It isn't cheap but definitely worth it because I use it almost every day. I am such a watch junkie that I love to have one in every color, however, I still find myself wearing this one the most often and I always get compliments on it! I would for sure recommend this!
Books
Divergent-By: Veronica Roth- The month of August I decided to be the last person to jump on the Divergent ban wagon and give it a shot. I really enjoyed this book considering this isn't usually my favorite style. I also watched the movie on Amazon Prime (see my book vs movie post here). I thought that the book had a lot of depth and there weren't a lot of two-dimensional characters which made it a lot more intriguing. I recommend this book for sure.
Where She Went- By: Gayle Forman- I did a full review of this book under the book list tab but I had to mention this book in my favorites because I am obsessed with it. For those of you who don't know, this is the sequel to the novel If I Stay which just turned into a movie (book vs. movie post here) which I also loved by Gayle Forman. I however was shocked by how impressed I was also by the greatness of the sequel Where She Went. This book is written from the boyfriend Adams perspective therefore you leave this book feeling though you know him so much better now. I think this book was definitely necessary after the rather abrupt ending to If I Stay. I read this book in one day on a straight road trip so I was obviously not bored with it and needless to say GO READ IT... after reading If I Stay of course. 
Movies
Into The Storm- I went to go see this movie with two friends and we were all a wreck through out this whole movie due to the suspense. This movie is almost like twister in the fact that it is based off the story of tornadoes. I loved this movie however and you should for sure click on the title to view the trailer!
If I Stay- Click on the title to view the trailer for If I Stay. This movie was SO great and spot on with the book. My friends and I were all a mess during and after the whole movie because we cried endlessly. This movie is certainly spectacular and portrays such a sweet message. The book as always is a smidge better for me but that might just be because I am a nerd. :) I recommend reading the book but DEFINITELY go see the movie afterwards. See the book vs. movie post I did on it here.


Random
Lilly Pulitzer Agenda- This agenda is seriously keeping my life together. I am such a planner and have to make lists so having a cute agenda like this one makes it great! I use this to write down my homework and everything and it makes me so happy because it is simply adorable!

The SacconeJolys Youtube Channel- I LOVE this family's videos! They seriously make my day tuning in daily to watch their life! This husband and wife living in London have a 2 year old girl and boy only a few months old. I don't know what it is about them that I love but I find the kids to be adorable and the parents to be hilarious and entertaining to watch. Such a cute family! Check them out!
That is all for my August favorites! What have you loved this past month? Let me know by commenting down below or sending me an email!

  3. Pretty watch! I would like to read the Divergent series but at the rate I'm going with reading these days, I'll probably end up watching the movie first.
