Hi cutie pies! Okay, so normally I'd start this with something like "I'm so bummed it's the end of this month" but I'd be lying. As awesome as July was, I'm so ready for August. August is going to be the best month ever. I'm turning 24 (Aug. 24th) and my brother and his girlfriend will be welcoming a sweet baby boy due August 23. I can't wait to be an auntie! 

Let's move on to my July favorites before I completely gush about how I can't wait to dress him up in cute little outfits, play trucks and dinosaurs with him, take him trick-or-treating and take him to aquariums when he's older. Ahem. Right. Favorites. Okay.

Beauty Favorites!

Girly Bits Wet Bikini over Essie Turquoise & Caicos and Bikini So Teeny  - Buy
Quite possibly the cutest summery combo.

Funky Fingers Mrs. Mint and Taffy Town - Five Below - 3 for $5
As you can tell, I can't get enough for mint and coral this summer! Taffy Town has a subtle orange shimmer in it.

Avanti Wet-Dry Nano-Titanium Ceramic Silver Digital Flat Iron - Buy 
Need I rave more about this? This is perfect for when it's a super hot day already and you really don't want to blow dry then straighten your hair. No need to blow dry with this baby!

Chi 44 Iron Guard, Got2B Dazzling Shine Spray and KQC Thermal Shine 
July was rough to my hair between laying out tanning and jumping in the pool so I love to spray on Chi 44 Iron Guard (TJ Maxx - $7.99) when my hair is dry and KQC Thermal Shine (Buy) when it's wet before straightening my hair to protect it anyway I can. Got2B Dazzling Shine Spray isn't a protectant but adds a nice shine to your hair, detangles knots and just smells really yummy (Walmart - price varies).

Living Proof frizz Nourishing Styling Cream -  Buy
This has been awesome for July, especially with all the humidity, my hair frizzes like crazy. I got this in my MyGlam bag for July and was so excited to try it. It smells really good and works!

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Buy
I LOVE this perfume! To me, this is the perfect summer scent. Super light and sweet smelling. 

Glisten & Glow Body Butter in Sangria White Peach - Glisten & Glow - $13.50
So, this little number snuck in the last week of July, being sent for review and OMG. I can't stop using it! This is a July favorite for two reasons: it smells ridiculously yummy and makes your skin super soft. The review for this will be up sometime this week and I really wish computers had smell-o-vision or something. So yummy!

Maybelline Eye Studio in Coral Oasis Buy
I love this so much that this is already my second one. 

I would describe the four colors as a light champagne, a shimmery lemon sorbet, a shimmery orange-tinted coral and a shimmery chocolate.


SwitchEasy Melting iPhone Case - Buy
July was so hot my iPhone case melted! /imsocorny 

Sparrow ring - Old Navy - $3.99
How cute is this? I spotted it on clearance at Old Navy. It was part of a three ring set but the other two were broken so I saved this little birdie!

Chocorooms - $1.00
OMG. These are so delish! They taste exactly like Twix minus the caramel. They're in the shape of little mushrooms too! I would've taken a picture of them but, ahem, I ate them all. There were no surviors.

My Auntie Rocks onesie - Carters - $3.99
Can you guys tell I'm excited!? My brother's girlfriend's baby shower was this weekend and my gift to them may or may not have been a whole bunch of Auntie Rocks/is amazing/I love my Auntie onesies. And bibs.

Mossimo Moccasins - Target - $19.99
These are so cute! My mom bought them for me as an early birthday present and I think I've worn them every single day since. I've worn these with a lace dress and denim vest, shorts, skinny jeans - they really go with anything! I can definitely see me carrying these into my fall style also. 

So, those are my July favorites! Sorry they're a little late but I have been one busy girl! What were your favorites this month?
