August Favorites

This month is a little different because a lot of these favorites are from small businesses that I’ve found and loved.  Small disclaimer, I’m not sponsored by any of these companies, but I am an Amazon affiliate, more about that on my About Page.  So here we go!

Book of the Month

Point Blank by Alan King was my favorite reviewed book this month.  This book of poetry could not have come at a better time for our culture right now.  I wrote a review here, but I highly recommend purchasing this book or the ebook on Amazon here.

I found Declan Roe in my research for my Continuing the Conversation post last week.  I loved what they are doing so much that I purchased the sweet button romper above.  Basically, 15% of the proceeds go to an organization called Bundled Blessings that help couples with IVF treatments or adoption.  With adorable clothes (even for boys) and a precious cause, how could I not love this?

Beauty and Fashion

At the farmer’s market, I saw this booth, Simple Suds and Stuff, selling laundry detergent and alpaca dryer balls.  I loved the business owner’s passion for wanting to know every ingredient that goes into the products she uses.  I was intrigued, even more so when I found out that one of the scents she was selling was Peppermint.  I love all things mint, so I decided to try it.  That week, Sam had one of his incredible blowouts on a white onesie.  This detergent made it look brand new without dimming the lettering on the front of the onesie!  I am sold.  She also has the lavender scent, and who doesn’t like lavender smelling sheets?

Entertainment

And finally, if you are wanting a cute, sweet, light rom-com, I highly recommend To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix (which was originally a book by the same name).  It follows a girl named Lara Jean who writes a letter to a crush in order to process that crush, and then she addresses it and hides it in a hat box.  But somehow, the letters get out, and all chaos ensues.  I was actually hesitant to watch this because I didn’t want to watch something with a lot of tension.  But I was pleasantly surprised at how much comedy balances out the drama.  Five stars.

What are some favorites you have been enjoying this month?
