Through the fire, we’re born again

August has flown by, not that I am too surprised by that.  It’s been a trying month, and the next few months will be much of the same.  So I’ve rounded up my favourite things from August and I’d like to share them.  Okay, here goes!

1. High By The Beach by Lana Del Rey – LDR’s lead single off her upcoming Honeymoon (out September 18th!) It’s true to LDR form, a little jazzy, a little bluesy, a little crazy, and all good.  And the video is badass… guns, explosions, the ocean.  This song has been stuck in my head for days.  I also love that she drew parallels from previous songs like she’s coming full circle.

2. Lipstick – Now that there is an end date in sight for my treatment I have been rocking my favourite lipsticks.  Move over stains the “Lipstick Queen” is showing off her lippie collection!  My favourites include MAC Viva Glam VI, Nars Gipsy, and Makeup Forever No.9.

3. Transitional Wardrobe – Before we know it, it will be time for longer sleeves and hem lines.  The air will turn brisk, the leaves change colour, only to fall, and so will my wardrobe.  Breaking out my transitional pieces is always fun for me!  I love Autumn, it’s definitely my favourite season, and I am pretty much the poster child for A/W fashions.  Sweaters and chinos are an easy must, while dresses and opaque tights are amazing.

I kept the list short and sweet this month, it’s still hard for me to believe that it’s over.  I’m looking forward to September and all it brings including my 27th birthday mid month!  And on that note, it’s time to end.

All for now,
