Hey, everyone! How was your August? Mine was spent getting ready for school and enjoying the last few days of vacation. Here are my top ten favorites from this past month. :)
10. DIY Honey and Vanilla Scrub – A couple of weeks ago, I decided to do through my craft pins and actually do them. Because it was the only “craft” that I had all of the ingredients for, I made a DIY Honey and Vanilla scrub. I love it because it made my skin really soft and smelled good.
9. My backpack – My backpack this year was from Pottery Barn and I received lots of compliments on it. You can see all of my school supplies here.
8. You Will Never Run by Rend Collective – This is one of the top songs on Rend Collective’s new album, As A Family We Go. I love Rend Collective and this song is a great reminder that God will always be with us.
7. Old Navy’s Patterned Soft Pink Floral Skirt – Early this month, I went to Old Navy and bought multiple items but one of my favorites was their soft pink floral skirt. I was about to not get it but I was glad that I did. And bonus, it is on sale now. :)
6. Garner Fructis’s Brazilian Smooth Shampoo – This shampoo really works for my hair. For “difficult to straighten hair”, like mine, this shampoo is said to be proven to reduce flatiron time. It will be interesting to see if that statement is true when I do get around to flat ironing my hair.
5. Garner Fructis’s Sleek & Shine Leave-In Conditioner – My sister uses this often and so I decided to try it. I was amazed at how smooth and soft it made my hair, even the second day. Definitely worth trying.
4. Papa Smurf Flash drive – I found this flash drive extremely helpful in my computer web design class and it is easy to find because it is different than most of the flash drives used.
3. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins – My family loves these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins. With the perfect amount of chocolate and pumpkin, these muffins are perfect for fall and for after-school snacks. You can find the recipe here.
2. 500 Writing Prompts (book) – I bought this book from Barnes and Nobles, a while back. I like it because it has some interesting prompts that make you think, such as; “Do you think ‘take it one day at a time’ is good advice? Why or why not.” and, “Do you think the eyes are a window to a person’s soul? What does eye contact mean to you?”
1. Psalm 118:6 – While doing my devotions, I came across this verse. It reminded me that we don’t need to worry about anything in this world because it’s not going to matter in the end.
