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.

Important Blog Changes!

Don’t worry, things aren’t changing too much. Things are mostly just changing for me. B&B is going to become a self-hosted space on the Internet as of tomorrow.

The only change you’ll feel as a reader is if you’re only following B&B on You won’t get those awesome email notifications every time I post, but you will still see my posts in the WordPress reader. In order to get notified of new posts and keep up with B&B in general, I suggest following Beaus and Bows on Bloglovin‘, Facebook, or Twitter. You’ll be notified of new posts whenever they’re published and we’ll get to talk more too!

I’m taking the reins on my space of the Internet in order to make B&B better for you and me. I’ll be able to have more creative control over the view of my blog and will be able to offer you all more in the future.

Fingers crossed everything goes well with this change! Things will be back to normal soon.

Plus, I’ve got a little gift to you to say thanks.
