August Not-So Beauty Favorites


Compared to my usual monthly favorites blog posts, this might be the least makeup related favorites to date, EVER! This past month has gone quite fast. It  was(still is) a mix of family gatherings, work, exercise, sickness, meetings and road trips, which led me to wearing no makeup 80% of the time. Not to mention I went to the mall for the first time in about 2 months. I am so proud of myself. 😀

Lets get the few makeup bits out of the way first, the Sigma Duo Fibre F15 Powder/Blush Brush is on the list yet again because (its the first thing I see on my makeup table) I find it to be such a great brush in setting and baking powder after foundation application. While my new addition to my eyebrow game, the Maybelline Fashion Brow!! I bought this on a whim while doing some mall errands. And to my surprise, I actually love it! Comment below if I should give a review of this! 

Since I am a freelance designer, I go through a bunch of consultations, meetings and design developments with my clients. I always have my Moleskine Plain Notebook-Large in tow for any reminders and random thoughts that I need to remember. 

Getting food poisoning really hit me hard for about 4 days this month. I just couldn’t keep my food down! So this Baylis & Harding Candle in Sweet Mandarin and Grapefruit really helped with the certain “scents” that were lingering around my room. (TMI)


I think this might just be a given for my favorites because I use this everyday now. The Cetaphil Daylong SPF 30 Sun & Snow gives me enough protection from the sun during my day to day activities.

Lastly, my Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lense in Black finally arrived! I have been waiting for this baby for almost 3 months! Although the kit lense that came with the Sony A6000 is great, I found it a bit too wide for some shots that I wanted to take. So expect some intense BOKE in my upcoming posts!

What are your favorites this August?
