Monthly Scrapbook: August 2016

The month has gone by so now it’s time for the Monthly Scrapbook!

Here’s an explanation of the pictures!

  • Top Left – Chip Trying! My coworkers and I got together and tried the new Lays chips! We all really liked the Greek tzatziki chips and were all really disappointed in the Brazillian picanha chips.
  • Top Right – Eyelashes! I tried on lashes for the very first time and even filmed it! You can watch that video here.
  • Middle Right – Hiking with Taylor! For the first time that we’ve been together, Taylor and I went on a hike! It was really hot but it was a nice experience!
  • Middle Left – Work Fire Drill! We had a fire drill at work and we got a little break before our usual break time!
  • Bottom Left – New Phone! I finally, finally got my new phone! I love it so much! You can watch a video of me talking about it on my podcast here!
  • Bottom Right – Night Out in Downtown! Taylor and I went out to watch a movie at night and we decided to take a walk around downtown San Jose before doing that! It was really nice out, and we took some silly pictures :)

Makeup Monday: August Haul (Ulta, Drugstore, Colourpop)

Makeup Monday

Over the past couple of years, I went from “sometimes putting eyeliner and lipstick on” to learning how to take care of your skin and how to do that with makeup. I just wanted to share the love for all things beauty and skin-care related. Let me know what you think!

Here is yet another haul video! Here’s all the makeup stuff I bought in August; I went to Ulta, Walgreens, and ordered some Colourpop!

My Recencies: August 26-September 1

My Recencies

Another week, another My Recencies post! Every week, I will handwrite 5 things I did that week that made me happy, take a picture of it, and post it on Instagram. And that is what I (now) call My Recencies! Without any further ado, here is what I did this week!

Here’s a preview for this week’s #MyRecencies!
