For me I’m glad August is over, we had record high temps here in Michigan and this girl just isn’t into hot weather. It’s not enjoyable for me to feel like I’m dripping wet from the humidity. I don’t know how people in the south do it. On a better note we did finally tackle raising the kitchen cupboards and while we had the time we also added a beadboard backsplash. Hubby and I also had the time to do a couple of day trips, which was nice it being just the two of us. I also believe our dog’s torn ACL has healed, she’s not a feisty as before but way better than I ever imagined without surgery. And after recovering from the flu I started to add a little Fall decor to the cabin.
If you’ve missed any posts from August all you need to do is click on the photos below to be taken to the complete post. Now scroll down to see what I’m crushing on this month.
As you know I hit the big “50” this year and one of the problems I have is keeping lipstick from not running into those tiny lines around my mouth, if you’re near my age you know what I’m talking about. I’m a girl that never leaves home without my face on, I even mow the lawn in makeup (I don’t want anymore sun damage). Well on a whim one day while browsing around KMart while waiting for my hair appointment I found “Smoochie Lip Balm” on the clearance rack, I liked the color, so I decided to give it ago. This stuff is amazing, not only is it the combination between a chapstick and a lipstick but it stays in place and it come in the most amazing colors. I’m hooked, so hooked I went back and purchased 3 other shades. It’s my new go to lipstick!!
The second product love for this month is “Power Up Mega Omega Trail Mix”. I’m known for darting out of the house in the morning before breakfast and then it hits me around 11:00 that “I’M STARVING” and I don’t do fast food restaurants as a general rule. The last time this occured I was shopping in TJMaxx (this is beginning to sound like I have a shopping problem) and spotted a variety of trail mixes on the shelf. I sifted through them until I found one that looked like it would hit the spot. Once in the car I opened it up and grabbed a handful (after using hand sanitizer). I must say this is my new favorite trail mix. I liked it so much I went back into the store a purchased more. I’m not sure if your TJMaxx is like the one here but if you don’t grab it when you see it it won’t be there the next time you go. Now I’m hoping I can find it in another store when I’m ready to restock.
