It’s the last Friday of the month which means it’s time for some August favorites!! This month is always my favorite time of the year. It’s warm, it’s sunny, and best of all-it’s time for my birthday 🙂 (the 30th so we haven’t celebrated yet, don’t worry!)
While baseball isn’t on this list, I have been watching it a ton lately. I’ve got too many favorite teams in races this year! Let’s be totally honest though, I’d happily just watch baseball all day, every day, even if all my teams sucked. Thankfully it’s been super good this season. And absolutely let me know in the comments if you saw the brawl yesterday because that whole Yankees/Tigers game was incredible!
Anyways let’s get back to the point of this post 🙂
I was so so sad when I didn’t have a chance to see this movie in the theater. The trailer looked great & it had a bunch of actors I love so it was the perfect formula to get me hooked. I finally got it this month(thanks mom!) & watched it right away.
It was even better than I had prepared for!! Action will always be my favorite genre, and it played it very well, but it also had the perfect blend of seriousness, story, a sprinkled in humor. Normally I’m on my computer or doing something else while I watch a show/movie but this one had my full attention the whole time. I highly recommend this movie for anyone who just wants a good classic movie experience!

I wear sunglasses all the time, so I need lots of different pairs to mix and match with outfits. A classic pair of gold aviators are such a great staple pair to have! But I found myself without them for a while and not willing the spend the money on a new pair of Ray-Bans. Then just a couple days ago I was at Nordstrom Rack and found this pair for $30! Simple and exactly what I was looking for.

3. S’well Water Bottle
I’ve talked about this brand on here before but I’ve now had my bottle for a full year, and I still love it just as much as when I first got it! I’ll probably be asking for another one either for my birthday or Christmas this year simply because they’re so cute!
Staying hydrated is sooo important to me. That means I carry around a water bottle wherever I go. S’well bottles work incredibly well at keeping water fresh and cool for hours & hours. They’re also really sturdy which means it can handle whatever I put it through. The insulation also works for heat which means one bottle can switch between coffee and water throughout the day.

4. Coral Blanket & Pillow
Putting my office together has been a slow process because I want everything in it to be perfect from the start. Although I started in the winter, with a coral and mint theme, I wasn’t able to do a lot of the decorating until Summer came along. This blanket & pillow combo was a totally lucky find just from wandering around TJ Maxx. I love the pom-pom details!!
Unfortunately I can’t find this exact set online but there are still a ton of coral options to choose from. It’s such a perfect color to decorate any room with!

5. August Playlist
This month I haven’t been listening to too much new music, which means I’ve been diving deep into my ipod with over 2.4k songs. I always love just sticking it on shuffle and being reminded of songs I used to love or artists I haven’t listened to recently. That means this month’s playlist is a bit of a throwback mix. But there are a few new ones because artists like Pink will ALWAYS have my heart. What About Us is a total sad jam.
