Can you even believe it’s August?
This week marks a year since we moved to Utah. In some ways it feels like ten minutes, and in other ways, our life in Arizona feels like a distant dream.
I’ve gathered up a few of my current favorite items that have been making my life better on a daily basis and I thought I’d share them here – every one of these is something I use almost daily!
4 Favorites for August
- The BEST cutting board. I got the smaller one (it comes in a two-pack on Amazon) at a dinner I went to with Kelsey Nixon a few months ago and it’s quickly become the cutting board I reach for EVERY time. The small size means that it’s perfect for cutting up an apple or a peach or some strawberries and the little rubber feet means it doesn’t slip around. Did I mention it’s dishwasher safe? I LOVE this thing.
- Drawer organizers. My sister Merrick recommended these earlier this year and when we got a new dresser for our bedroom, I ordered two sets of them so I could organize my jewelry, my makeup and my hair products in the smaller top drawers (this is life without a master bathroom). I love that you can arrange them however you’d like and I used these clear dots to adhere them to the bottom of the drawers so they don’t slide around when I open or shut the drawers.
- Gold and white sneakers. I bought these sneakers a few weeks ago when I was looking to add a sportier pair of shoes to my closet and I love them so much. They are super comfortable and I like the slim profile – it’s basically hard not to wear them every day and I’m certain I’ll be wearing them all fall long. (They also have a navy and rose gold version that is super cute).
- Overnight Balm. I mentioned back in April this sunscreen that goes under your makeup that I got for our Hawaii trip and I’ve had more questions about it than just about any product ever. A month or so ago, I got a new night balm from their line and I am OBSESSED with it – it’s so smooth and my skin looks so even and clear that I’ve mostly stopped wearing foundation. It’s basically a miracle in a jar.
