Current Favorites: August 2011

Though this is a bit over due, I still have 2 weeks of August left for you to indulge in a few of my favorite things.  I must warn you this is a far more girly edition than I've done so far but I've been feeling rather feminine lately.

Sephora by OPI "Arm Candy" nail polish.  It's a sexy shade of pink with a bit of vamp thrown in for good measure.

Turquoise plaid button down.  It's a rugged feminine look perfect for fall... and moving out west.
Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette (the great... or maybe terrible thing about working at a mall is that I'm right down the lane from Sephora).  These have a lovely shimmer to them when applied dry, but when applied with a wet brush (just found out I could do this!) they're rich and metallic.  I've been experimenting thanks to my friend Lori and having a great time with tons of new "looks."

As part of the move to California, I decided to trade-in my laptop for an iPad 2 then my husband and I will share his iMac.  No, a tablet isn't a substitute for a computer, but financially and mobility wise this made more sense. And I love it.

"Jane Eyre" starring Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. This was just released on video today and if you love these types of films (and books) as much as I do, just buy it! It's the perfect mix of tragedy and romance highlighted with fantastic British performers.

"Raindrops" by Basement Jaxx. I heard this song on the last performance episode of SYTYCD-- Tadd and Sasha danced a pretty poor Cha Cha to it.  The routine stunk but this song is such fun to  have blaring through your car's stereo.
And did you watch the Season 8 finale? AMAZING!!!

  1. Ok I'm going to work backwards. Basement Jaxx-I am OBSESSED with them. My absolute fav song is Whats a girl gotta do. There is also a SYTYCD routine to it-AMAZING. The finale was AMAZING-beyond amazing. I was super happy with who won, although I loved the entire top 4. I really want to see the tour but I have no one to go with :( Boooooo. Also Sasha and Marks Sonya routine in the competition finale made my lifeeee!

    I can't wait for Jane Eyre. I might have to redbox it.

    <3 that baked palate. And FYI Urban Decay is having a monster clearance right now. Like $3 makeup items. For $2 you can get a shadow transforming "potion" which supposedly is less messy than using water. It was so cheap and I was already ordering so I threw it on there but I'll for sure post about it when I try it?!
