{Monthly Faves} My August Favorites.

I might as well title this August Food Faves, clearly I was more excited about food than beauty goods in August. Nothing wrong with that though, right? 

Grab a button and link up your August favorites with Kelli and I. The link up is live throughout the month if you want to share at anytime. 

Make Me Up Mia

OPA Greek Yogurt Ranch is Delicious! I eat a lot of salad and this has become a new favorite for me. It's more expensive, but I'm willing to pay an extra $1 or $2 for a little healthier option. *Sometimes I mix plain Greek yogurt and ranch packets for a healthier veggie dip, yum!

Clif Crunch Granola Bars in Chocolate Chip & White Chocolate Macadamia Nut. I decided to try these out and I've enjoyed them for an occasional morning snack. 

Van's Cinnamon Heaven Cereal A small bowl of this with strawberries or blueberries quickly became my go to cereal last month. 

Zevia Soda in Strawberry. I'm a water drinker, but occasionally I just want something else. I had tried the Cola flavor of these and just didn't love it. I really like this strawberry one though, it's a nice treat every once in a while. 


Essie Adore-A-Ball Polish I've honestly had this a while and forgot about it. I like this one better than Ballet Slippers. To me, it applies better and it's a little more white than pink.

Wen Sweet Almond Mint Hair Treatment If you've seen my awesome hair post, you know I'm always on the hunt for a good hair product. Shay recently did a Hair Mask Experiment and this one won. You can buy it on Amazon here for under $15, yes please. Bought, tried, loved! I've been using it once a week and it makes my hair so soft, I'm hooked!

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint Who else is with me here?!


Your turn, what were YOU loving in August?

  1. I love Essie Adore a Ball! I think it's such a sweet color.
    I was absolutely more into food than I was beauty this month... must be something in the water. I've been doing really simple looks without much thought. Maybe that will change in September.

  5. EOS Sweet Mint is by far my favorite of all the EOSs! I had a lot of food that I was loving this week, but since I loved it so much there wasn't anything left to photograph! haha!

  10. That cereal looks delicious-- it looks like a healthier option of cinnamon toast crunch! I used Essie's A Crewd Interest this weekend and wasn't thrilled with it-- that shade looks like a much nicer light neutral shade!

  12. HA! When I started my list the only thing I could think of was food too!! I've been looking for the perfect white nail polish forever...MUST try Adore-A-Ball!!

  13. I always see that Zevia at the store, I need to try it!

  14. That nail polish is very pretty. I haven't gotten a color like that since my wedding though because I never feel like they work with my skin tone. :-/ Essie Deumre Vixen is the only one that works on me. Those Clif bars sound good, I like the kids Clif bars too. :-) That yogurt sounds good too, and whenever I make ranch dip I always use greek yogurt. I think that it enhances the ranch flavor. :-) I hope that you are having a nice day so far too! :-)

  21. I haven't seen that yogurt before, but it looks so good! I'll have look at my grocery store. That cereal looks good too!
    My mom has been using Wen products for years and I knew nothing about them. They have become quite popular.
    Love that polish color and I'm obsessed with my EOS lip balm.
    Thanks for hosting again this month!

  23. That greek yogurt dressing sounds awesome. I mix greek yogurt with anything possible! I also have clif bars in my pantry at all times. They are such a great alternative when you need something sweet. I eat the peanut butter one for breakfast a lot.

  32. Great nail color! My husband is obsessed with the chocolate chip Clif bars and I'll definitely steal one on occasion ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Clif bars are soo good! I need to try out the Greek yogurt dressing, I feel like I'd eat more salads if I had that around!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Loving that nail polish color and your RING!

  35. I hear Cara rave about Wen all the time and I've been seriously contemplating giving it a whirl, maybe I'll start off with the mask and work my way up! I tried a few flavours of Zevia last year some time and I just couldn't get over how overly sweet they tasted! I didn't try the strawberry though, maybe I'll have to give it another shot.

  36. Nothing wrong with tons of yummy food picks! :) I've never tried anything from Wen, but I've always been tempted. How exactly does the link up button work?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yup I love my EOS lip balm, best chapstick ever. I don't even want to call it that cause it's too good to be called chapstick ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I deff need to try those Cliff Bars! And good idea about mixing Ranch powder with the Greek yogurt! I will deff be trying that out too. I'm doing shakeology now too. So far, so good! Great faves!
