Sharing an August 2018 recap – all the things I bought, want to buy, travels, my favorite posts & more!
What I Bought:
Target’s version of the Free People cutout booties (SUCH A STEAL!)
Everything in the Target Dollar section for fall (cannot link) HAHA
Football Season Tee
3 in 1 Primer + Finishing Spray
More of my favorite self tanner
These hair ties
3 Items In My Shopping Cart:
- I saw one of my favorite bloggers try this structured cardigan on and I LOVE it for business casual wear.
- Leopard is still in for fall! These flats have my name on them.
- Should I get the BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette? One of the Nordstrom Beauty artists used it on me at Create & Cultivate, and I’m debating…
Where I Traveled/Ate:
Minneapolis: I went to Minneapolis to visit one of my college best friends for her birthday and had such a fun time. It’s about a 5-hour drive from Nebraska, so it’s a good road trip destination. We ate at The Freehouse, Union, and then went out to fun bars. I would definitely recommend a weekend venture if you haven’t been!
Chicago: I also drove to Chicago for Create & Cultivate (recap here if you missed it)! I stayed at an Air Bnb with three awesome girls who were also attending the conference – we met via the C&C Facebook page! This was one of the best decisions I made that weekend – it was a ton of fun.
Lake of The Ozarks: The last drive I made was to my favorite place – Lake of the Ozarks. I’ve been going since I was younger, and it’s the most relaxing place. My favorite thing is to wake up in the morning and sit on the patio, overlooking the lake, just relaxing.
Movies I Saw:
MoviePass is now only allowing me to see 3 movies/month, but that doesn’t change much for me, as I wasn’t seeing many anyway. I saw one movie in August, Crazy Rich Asians. I LOVED it. 9/10. You should definitely see it if you haven’t!
Hulu/Netflix Series I Watched:
I started watching Castle Rock and I am ADDICTED! It’s so weird. I’m on the sixth episode and I’m still confused.
Season 2 of Ozark came out on Netflix and I can’t wait to start it! Have you watched it yet?

Because last month was so crazy, September has been long awaited. Normally I’d be heading to Lincoln every weekend for football season, but this year I kind of want to take it easy and watch from afar. I want to stay at home, relax and finish projects (like my bathroom remodel). I hope you have a wonderful week!
