August Favorites


I hope everyone’s been having a good month! Tomorrow I start my second year of college. I’m so glad to finally be back on campus, but I’m not quite ready to start actually going to class again…waking up at 6:30 is not my favorite thing in the world, I’m pretty much the opposite of a morning person. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been loving this month!


First up, pretty stationery! I’m the kind of person that would be totally lost without a good planner. This one is from Staples and has both a monthly and daily view. I also have this adorable world map notebook! Pretty stationery is one of my favorite vices. You can find this planner here!


My current makeup obsession is baked eyeshadows. I picked these up from Sally Beauty supply for just $1 each just to test them out. Of course, they’re not the best quality, but I’ve really loving the great neutral metallic shades, and they do well worn wet with a primer underneath. I’ve been loving this BellaPierre lipstick as well! I received it in a previous Ipsy bag, but didn’t get around to testing it until recently. It’s extremely pigmented, and I’m really loving wearing it this summer. You can find it here for $19.99!


 These boots. I could wax poetic about how much I love these boots for hours. They’re the perfect height, have an awesome chunky heel, and go without absolutely everything! Stay tuned for an outfit featuring them soon! I can’t wait to wear them when the weather gets a bit colder. I found them at Forever21, and though they aren’t available in black anymore, you can grab them in maroon or cognac here!


What have you been loving this month? Are you ready for the month of September? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Love Kiki

  1. I’m halfway through my second year at uni right now and can SO relate to those dreadful 6.30 starts haha. Hope you have a good start to the year!

    P.S. That stationery is SO cute, and I recently bought similar black boots and I’m OBSESSED, so we can go on and on about our heeled black ankle boots together! Hehe 🙂



    1. The quality is very good for the low cost! They’re well made, all the seams are tight, and they’re waterproof! I’ve worn them two days in a row with no blisters too. Definitely worth the $35 or so!

  3. I love mornings, but most of the time I’m not a morning person because I go to sleep late. However, if for some reasons I go to sleep earlier than I suddently turn into a morning person and say how great it is…but usually that doesn’t last for long and I’m back to my usual pattern of behaviour.

    I do like those baked eye shadows you showed us…and those boots are gorgeous!!!!
