Friday Favorites August 29

I can’t believe that August is already over! I’m still hating the weather as the temperature is still in the high 80’s and 90’s. Fall and Halloween cannot come soon enough! Art History class tied me up this past month, so I’ve been neglecting blogging. My September goal is to work out a schedule and stick to it. Anyway on to the fun stuff:


1.) OPI Tickle my France-y This is probably the first OPI nail polish I’ve purchased in the last two years. I’ve been hung up on Essie because of their unique selection of colors. In the bottle this color, looks like a mix between nude and mauve. Once it is applied and dries, I’d describe it as a mauve/nude/lilac color. It’s perfect as an end of summer transition into fall color.

2.) Milani Lip Liner 03 Nude & Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color 902 C Bare It All I can’t take credit from this combination because I read about it somewhere online. It is comparable to the “Kylie Jenner Lip” darker nude shade. In the 90’s I already rocked this shade with the lip liner, so this is NOT a new thing to me! Anyway, for under $10 you can pick both of these up at a drug store. The color combo goes great with any skin tone.

3.) Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been reading this book! Thanks to school I do not get much free time to read. This book is a cross over between Xmen sprinkled with some Harry Potter. What first drew me to this book at Barnes and Nobles was the strange photographs inside the book. They include a girl levitating, one holding a fire ball, and a person with a mouth on the back of their head. It turns out most of these photographs are actually real! Of course some of them are doctored up, but it is still fascinating.

The story follows a young man who is grieving over the sudden death of his Grandfather. He grew up listening to his Grandfather’s stories about his life when he was younger. The tales were all very far fetched, so the young man assumes they are just fairy-tales. Once his Grandfather passes, he begins to have some strange experiences of his own.

Although I do not often read fiction, I found this book to be quite enjoyable. It is a fast read and appropriate for children as well. There is also a sequel that I will begin reading next.

4.) Kimono I love this. I do not actually own it, because I have no idea what I could pair it with. It’s too casual for work and when I’m not working I’m wearing pj’s. So, as much as I adore it, mostly like it woulf sit in the back of my closet.

5.) Batiste Dry Shampoo This stuff is amazing! I’ve tried high end dry shampoos before and hated them. Over the past several years I’ve gone from washing my hair daily to about 3 times per week.  In between washings I like to use this stuff as it is a light refresher. It does not cause a build up or leave a powdery residue. The best part is that it is super cheap!
