August Favorites.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renasisance Palette, CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream, and Tara on Instagram - Tara's August Favorites

Can you believe we’re already talking about August Favorites? Can you believe I’ve kept up with monthly favorites all year (Knock on wood)? August was so good to me. I got to see my family (twice! <3) and got to visit B’s family too. It was Kim’s birthday and B and I’s 5 year anniversary. It was a month full of warm and happy moments and reflecting on it is making me smile all over again.

I have been dying to talk to you all about the CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Oily Skin. I want to do a thorough review on it , so I won’t ramble on too much, but this has rocked my world. I wear it to work every single day and have even been picking it over my Milani Conceal + Perfect most days and you know I love that stuff (review).

When the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette was released, I didn’t expect to get it. The shades seemed to pink or orange for my taste. The hype wasn’t getting to me…until I wandered into Dillard’s. Dillard’s is one of my favorite places to shop and the one by us has a really amazing beauty shop in it. They carry Anastasia Beverly Hills there and when I saw the palette, I had to swatch it. It was calling to me. I dipped my finger into Primavera, a gorgeous champagne shimmer, and I immediately decided I had to have it. The shadows are definitely out of my comfort zone, but the quality is insane. I’ve been using it all month long and I can’t see myself using something else for a long while.

Insta Stories! Okay, yes, Instagram coming out with what is basically a knock off Snapchat is a huge eye roll. At first I was super annoyed at the whole thing until I realized this could work for us. I do use Snapchat, but I use it to stay in touch with people in my personal life like friends and family. Although I love you very much, there are parts of my life I like to keep private. I’ve been using the Insta Stories feature of my Instagram to share more of my daily life with you all and a bunch of you seem to be enjoying it as much as I am! Some of you have even messaged me on it! It’s been super fun and I’m going to keep it going.

I’m a free woman! Meaning I’m self-hosted now. I feel so satisfied and happy with getting my blog to this point and I don’t know why it took me so long to get here. I’ve always been proud of B&B and now I just feel this overwhelming joy. I’m gushing, but honestly it makes me so happy. Thanks for sticking with me through the transition and for all of your great advice.
