August 2016 Favorites

August 2016 will forever be remembered as the month of boxes. And living out of boxes. And falling over boxes. You get the drill. But there still was some stuff, mostly the already unboxed stuff (ha, how many time can I say boxes in one paragraph?), that I enjoyed using.

  • I now want some Marshmallow fluff but I think I’d want to eat it from the jar! I hated the scent if that Ren product too! xx

    • I never started eating it from the jar, because I don’t think I could ever stop.

  • Cashew butter and marshmallow fluff?? I better don’t try it in case I like it too much, haha! I think I’m the only one who didn’t see any results from using the Ren 1 Minute Facial, I’ve not use it in months though but still have some left so I might try it tonight 🙂 x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • Haha, yes, it is dangerous to try. Mr. Loca got me hooked, and he was introduced by a former Canadian girlfriend. And I don’t think the REN product is for immediate, visible results, but for a quick treat for the skin. My skin feels great after using it!

  • Love the lipstick! I haven’t heard of the Biotherm Eau D’Energie but it sounds lovely! Love the new setting as well, it’s so much brighter!

    • It is, probably because it is so much smaller. But that makes filming easier.

  • Love your outfit 🙂 I’ve been dying to try the REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial.

  • Denise

    Moving is a challenge! I never had this Ren Flash 1 minute cleanser, but with a little of raw meat smell, I have to pass, so good you told that, because I like Ren and wanted to buy that! By the way, I liked your top or dress, very much! Nice Nikon camera! Nice purchase!

  • Great video Anne, I love your makeup like this and that wrap dress is GORGEOUS! This colour really suits you and I love the print. Sounds like some wonderful products, I don’t know if I could handle the raw meat smell but the results sound amazing! Gemma x

    • The wrap dress was my favorite purchase for the last pregnancy, the cut is flattering on the changing body shape and I love the colors as well.

  • I love so many things from Ren. I haven’t tried that yet.

  • Have to try marshmallow fluff, sounds so delicious! Have seen it in store but have never gotten around to try it haha! Xx

  • that dress really brings out your eyes, its lovely on you! and now im craving toast, damn that looked gooodd

    • It is a treat, a real pick-me up on a hard day. And thank you, I love this dress a lot.

  • That lipstick is lovely!

  • Yesssss cashew butter! Have you tried almond too? So good!

    It’s looking like August and September will be the month(s) of us living out of boxes! Glad you guys are finally taking a breather! (:

    • I usually stick to crunchy peanut butter, but the cashew one… Amazing! Good luck with your move. We are off to France, and I can´t wait to have a little resting time.

  • My favorite box of the month was the beautiful box that contained my Chanel order. I couldn’t wait to unbox it, but even the box itself was pretty neat.

    • That is four times boxes in just one sentence, I am impressed!

  • I need some marshmallow fluff stat! But I also want that lipstick! I didn’t wear too often makeup this month. Maybe just once or twice a week but I wore bright lipsticks a lot more. Shocking, I know! 😉

    • My go-to recipe for busy days: Little makeup and a bright lip. So quick and easy.

  • I had never thought of trying self tanning products by Clarins (though I’n now embracing being ghostly pale, haha), though I can imagine how impressive they’d be considering how amazing other products by the brand are 🙂

    • It is the only face tanning product I have found that I found that I really liked so far.

  • Totally love your new filming area! Wonderful video and I love the products you mentioned =)

  • The REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial sounds amazing. Thanks for the demo! Yes active vitamin C totally has a raw meat smell! I enjoyed some new sheet masks in August.

    • I never made the connection before, but once I read that it just clicked. I was blaming the water and other things before.

  • I really like your new filming area. Also, while you might not have gotten to try many new products this past month, the fact that you put up a video of this quality is still a significant feat! I think that means you earned at least a couple slices of that tasty looking cashew butter/marshmallow fluff toast. 😉

  • Looking lovely Anne! I enjoy Biotherm Eau d’energie, but I wouldn’t repurchase it. I t smells too peachy for my taste, I love your new video set, too.

    • Peachy? Hm, didn’t smell that before, but now that you mention it there is definitely peach in there.

  • Biotherm Eau d’energie würde ich auch gerne ausprobieren. Ich mag Biotherm generell.
    Ich hoffe ihr seid bald mit den Boxen auspacken fertig und dass ihr den September in vollen Zügen im neuen Haus genießen könnt! xoxo

    • Ich kenne sonst nicht so viel von Biothera, da muss ich definitiv mal genauer nachschauen.

  • Totally agree with you: sometimes life is just random! My August was no make up and body (and face) lotions. I’ve never tried these products but the Biotherm Eau d’energie looks so good. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    So happy that you features perfumes in this favourites! 😉 Never tried the Biotherm scent before (I didn’t even know they did fragrances!), but it does sound fab, fresh and wearable. 🙂 Also, I’m totally drooling over that marshmallow fluff… Been on a vegan diet for the past two weeks though, so I will have to resist. 😉 Hope you’re well! x

    • How is the diet going? And aren’t you supposed to call it a lifestyle as opposed to a diet ;)?

  • Love your new set up! Those little copper lamps in the background are super cute. Love the colour of that lipstick! It’s refreshing to see stuff that isn’t always beauty related (plus moving is such a hassle I totally get why you’d only keep a few items out LOL.) Hope your move went well and you can settle in soon 🙂

    • I got them a few years ago in an online sale for Christmas, but they are way too cute to only bring them out for one season.

  • That cashew butter toast is making me so hungry, lol. I am obsessed with nut butters, so I am always looking for new ways to eat them. Thanks for giving me an idea for tomorrow’s breakfast!
    I am also happy you mentioned Clarins Liquid Self-Tanner; I will definitely check out your review. Just recently, I tried St Tropez mousse and loved it overall, but it also clogged my pores. I hope this one will be different:)

    • It is the only facial tanner that I am really liking so far, everything else was either streaky or made me break out.

  • That lipstick looks beautiful on you :). I just got a deluxe size sample of the Ren 1 Minute Facial so I’m excited to try it out. Is it odd that I find your voice very soothing? haha! Love the video 🙂
