August Recap

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
Office Decor
Football Season Tee
Glossier Lipstick

3 in 1 Primer + Finishing Spray
More of my favorite self tanner
These hair ties
ExfoliKate Exfoliator/Facial

3 Items In My Shopping Cart:

  1. I saw one of my favorite bloggers try this structured cardigan on and I LOVE it for business casual wear.
  2. Leopard is still in for fall! These flats have my name on them.
  3. 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?

Looking Forward:

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!
