August Favourites

Only 4 & a half days to go of beautiful summer 2015... I thought it would be great to sum it up with my August Favourites this year. There is an open suitcase sitting in front of me on the floor, waiting to be packed. So excited to catch a little bit of sun before rolling into the fall. I can't wait to see what it brings. 
Without further ado, here are my August Favourites.

This, without a doubt, has to be one with the water (sticking to the summer theme here). I will most likely have beaut beach photos to share later on. However, there is one particular place we (hubby and myself) discovered. I've never been to Wales, nor could even imagine how beautiful it was. I loved a little walk down the pier despite a bit chilly weather. Presenting to you Llanudno, Wales.

One item I have definitely used every single day this month (and throughout the summer) is Two Faced Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer. It applies smoothly. Easily blendable. This bronzer is absolutely wonderful, it lasts for ages and gives your skin that beautiful summer glow.

I'm going to go for favourite footwear! To make it even more chill, I will pick my favourite pair of flip flops. It's August Favourites so it's completely justified ;) I just love these Roxy Tahiti V Flip Flops (they are also on sale at the moment!).

Being a movie buff, this is one of most difficult questions to answer. Although, if we are talking August (too bad it's not July, then I would say "Minions" haha) and if I had to pick among the films we watched at the movie theater, I would go for "Vacation". If you were growing up watching Chevy Chase's & Griswold family adventures, you will love this one a lot! Ed Helms was absolutely incredible!
Vacation
This is one of my favourite categories and the choice is not easy. However, I confess that this summer I have enjoyed too many cinnamon swirls at Starbucks. Do I feel guilty? Not one bit. 
Cinnamon Swirl
Have you ever watched The Bachelor? Do you remember that nasty guy Juan Pablo who was the bachelor in Season 18? Anyway, this is not about him. It's about one of the sweetest girls who was on the show - Renee Maynard (maiden name: Oteri). It is so nice things have worked out for her and she's happily married with two beautiful kiddos. Last night as I was listening to her interview on her latest pregnancy with baby Jax, I tweeted about it, and she "favorited" my tweet! Call it a fan girl moment, but I honestly think this woman is incredible! Major "wow" moment and it made my day. I wish we were friends in real life :) Btw, are you following me on Twitter? ;)

Our Anniversary. My most favourite day of August, despite all the amazing and fun things we did, is August 12. It was amazing to look back at the year we have been married and appreciate everything all over again. I love my husband to bits and look forward to many many many many many (!!!) more years of our happy married life.

  17. It looks like you had such a wonderful month! I'm not a big movie-watcher, but I do want to see the new Vacation movie. I've heard so much about the Too Faced Bronzers...I really want to try the Milk Chocolate one, as they say it's very light and natural because I am super pale year round unfortunately haha.
    After looking at the cinnamon roll I'm now hungry and what I'm going to eat for breakfast...

    Hope you enjoy your last mini vacay of summer!
