Hi friends! I hope you’ve had an awesome week and are looking forward to the weekend. It’s the last weekend before school starts!! I really can’t believe how fast it’s gone! We’ll be getting some pool time in and making sure we have everything ready to start school next week.
This week was a fun one on the blog where I shared my closet with you, the best sales, dorm room essentials and today I have a new Loves GIVEAWAY!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends on Sunday and prices go to full price on Monday, so I’ll be sharing some of my last minute picks that are still in stock too.
AUGUST LOVES GIVEAWAY
As a THANK YOU for reading and subscribing to my blog, I’m giving away EVERYTHING in my August Loves to one of my subscribers.
If you’re not subscribed, you can sign up here, and I will pick a winner at random and announce at the end of the month!
If you’re new to Loves, it’s where I share things I’m loving each month, with the aim to highlight fabulous things I swear by, some things I want to try, great deals, and under $50 finds! All perfectly appropriate for the flavor of each month! I love sourcing goodies and sharing them with you!
This month’s LOVES is inspired by the upcoming Fall season and all things cozy! I’m getting you ready for lounging around, soaking up all the snuggliness of the season!
Barefoot Dreams Throw • UGG Slippers • GHD Curling Iron • Candle • Matches • Barefoot Dreams Cardigan
Getting cozy at home starts with a luxe Barefoot Dreams Throw. It’s incredibly plush and soft with a bit of springiness to it!
Y’all know I’ve been loving these UGG Slippers and they are one of my favorite purchases in the entire NSale! They feel so good on your feet, but they’re nice and sturdy on the outside.
I’ve been using the GHD Curling Iron that I got at the NSale and I really love it. Your hair glides through it like no other and it has tri-zone technology for optimum heat with less damage to your hair.
I light a candle in my living room and kitchen every night and it’s so relaxing. The kitchen candle gets lit after the dishes are done and counters are wiped clean. Then, I light the living room candle when I sit down on the couch to take a breather. This Soy Candle by Sweet Water Decor smells fresh and isn’t too overpowering.
If you want to up the cuteness factor, you can use these Matches in a Bottle to light your candle. They make great decor or gifts.
Finally, I’m super excited about the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan – and my favorite is the drape ribbed version with a thin belt. It’s not as heavy as the circle cardigan, but it’s equally as cozy!
I can’t wait to see who wins this month’s giveaway! It’s so fun when I get to notify the winner! They are always so surprised and appreciative! What would you like to see in next month’s giveaway?

1 • This button front cardigan comes in 4 colors and is made with a soft-spun organic cotton blend.
2 • These were in my Top 3 fave jeans in the sale and you’ll save over $60 on this pair! I love the shape and style and how there’s no gaping in the waist. I sized down 1 to a 24 and they’re currently available in all sizes.
3 • You definitely want to get your Hunter rain boots while they’re on sale- $60 off!
4 • Tory Burch can do no wrong in my book and this classic tote will never go out of style. You’ll save $228 if you buy it before Monday.
5 • Ali-Shaun loves evil eye jewelry, and told me that you’re not supposed to buy it for yourself- someone is supposed to gift it to you? Have you heard of that? I wouldn’t be mad if someone gifted me this evil eye coin necklace.
6 • How cute are these huggie hoop earrings?! They’re petite enough to wear to work, but fun enough for the weekend.
7 • This popular bootie is almost sold out in the tan, but the cool snakeprint has lots of sizes still in stock. This print definitely amps up your solid colored sweater and jeans outfit! They fit TTS.
8 • Adore the exaggerated cuffs on this puff sleeve sweater!
9 • Moonlight dreams pajamas always go fast, but the oh so soft and stretchy nightshirt of your dreams is still available!
10 • Have you tried the Sweaty Betty leggings? They’re nice and light with a high waist and side pockets.
11 • And of course, you’ll want a sports bra to go with it. I like this style with a higher neckline and compression style that’s good for running.
12 • How did I miss these Nike sneakers!? They’re specifically designed for city surfaces, which is perfect for when you want to go for a quick walk or jog out your front door. And the little peek of leopard print on the heel is too cute!
13 • I’ve heard great things about this lighted mirror that has 10x magnification and a clip for your cell phone that lets you watch video tutorials while you apply your makeup or take selfies to your heart’s content! It’s $70 off!
Let's be friends!

14 • Bobbi Brown lip tint is a great makeup deal that includes two full-size shades of lip color (Bare Pink and Bare Raspberry) that compliments every skin tone. Think of this duo as a combination of ultra hydration with a bit of color. Your lips never looked or felt so good!
15 • These candles are a classic and the petite set of six is perfect for displaying throughout your home or breaking apart and giving as gifts.
16 • Hair tools can make the biggest difference in your hair and I’ve been so happy with my T3 hairdryer and curling irons. T3 makes a flat iron too and it’s $50 off in the NSale! I use a flat iron to straigten the ends of my hair like I did with this look.
17 • You won’t believe that you get this beautiful art with the wooden frame for just $26! And it’s a great size!
18 • This gold wine rack is so pretty! It makes the wine bottles look like art on your counter and would also be a thoughtful gift for your wine-loving friend!
19 • You get 16 oz in this sleek Hydroflask that keeps your drinks hot or cold for hours.
20 • This reversible knit blanket has a waffle knit on one side and stripes on the other. The only problem is choosing a shade!

August Loves! I have an addiction to throw blankets and candles. Haha
Pretty choices for August Loves
I just adore your blog – I’ve been a subscriber since the beginning –
I would do love to win your giveaway- It would bring a smile to my face since I’m having surgery here soon in Sept-
Thanks for awakes posting such great finds – ??♀️
Random question- do you get gel manicures and how often? Your nails always look so pretty and like you just had them done. I currently get acrylic overlay on my nails but like the more natural look of yours. Thanks for your great blogs I love reading them each morning especially since I am not a morning person!! ?
Hi Celeste! I love to get my nails done and usually go every 2-3 weeks. I was getting shellac, but lately I’ve been getting dip. BUT, a couple of weeks ago, I took my nails off and they have been totally natural without nail polish while I’m letting them grow and get healthy again. When I wear polish, my go-to color is Lisbon Wants Moor by OPI.
