August wasn't nearly as exciting as my July in terms of travel. I had a quick weekend trip to LA for a wedding, but I spent most of the month in New York. I started at a new project at work and it's been keeping me pretty busy with some late nights (sorry if I haven't been updating the blog as diligently!) Mattia is now in New York again visiting me and looking for a new job so hopefully he can be here in long term. We've been spending lots of time going to the beach as much as possible before the weather gets cold.
GLAMGLOW SUPER MUD I'm a bit late on the GlamGlow train, but I'm glad I discovered this mud mask. It takes out all the oils and dirt from my skin, leaving it clean and fresh, but it also has a skin tightening effect and doesn't leave it dried out. I usually use it right before bed to clear out my skin, and then use a sheet mask for the ultimate clean + moisture combo. Other times I use it before a night out to get my skinig looking and feeling super glam.
KAPTEN & SON WATCH I absolutely love this watch. It's beautiful, minimal, and super versatile. I can wear it to nice dinner or to work. People are always asking me where I got it from and giving me compliments. The anchor detail on the face is one of my favorite details because it subtly reminds me of travel and adventure.
BCBG LITTLE BLACK DRESS I finally found the perfect LBD! It hits me at the perfect length, and I can dress it up for nights out or dress it down for work. I also love the leather panels near the shoulders, since the detail adds its chicness.
ALDO ACCESSORIES CHOKER I found this choker while last minute shopping in Vegas in June earlier this year, and I've been reaching for it ever since. I pretty much pair it with every single outfit.
GIGI HARD WAXING KIT My sister introduced me to this and I haven't looked back since. I mainly use this for waxing my underarms and I absolutely love how clean it looks afterwards. I never thought that shaving was every close enough to look clean and I'm now fully converted to waxing only for my underarms. It lasts for about a week and I never have to worry about dark pits. (I still shave for my legs though.) It did take me a couple tries to get used to this, but this instructional YouTube video really helped. (Pay attention to the wax consistency, that's really important!)
