My Life in August 2019

Hello Everyone!

The end of the month is almost here so it's time for a monthly Lifestyle post. I should be back to posting regularly in September. I miss you all and I miss blogging! I know this lifestyle post is a little early this month lol.

Last month I celebrated my 6th Blogiversary and I included my PR Haul. Thank you again everyone for all the amazing products!

Enjoying time at the park

Look at that beautiful fountain

I updated everyone on how I'm doing see link  at the end of this post.

I decided to take another chance and try something from Starbucks: Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino. It's ok, but it tastes more like a watery milkshake with vanilla. More like ice milk. 

 I tried to drink that Vanilla Bean Créme Frappuccino and about midway through the drink just tasted like watery milk and hint of vanilla. I took that drink right back to Starbucks and they gave me a Fresher instead.

I love Urban Decay products, so thank you for the like on Instagram!

This clinically proven formula helps to improve the appearance of scars and encourage healthy skin. It may help improve the appearance and texture of sunburns, chemical burns, industrial burns, old scars, new scars, stretchmarks as it moisturizes the skin. This refreshing, oil-free formula goes on clear and will not stain clothes.

My Thoughts

This is my second jar of scar gel. I had a insect bite a back in June that left a scar on my arm. I started using this Scar Gel and I noticed results with the scar fading within a week. After a few weeks of using this scar gel I my scar is almost gone. This scar gel is also great for soothing sunburns. 💜

This lightweight day moisturizer helps to naturally support collagen health while protecting skin from pollutants and impurities.

My Thoughts

I've noticed some hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, but the Vitamin C Renewing Moisturizer had helped my uneven skin. Vitamin C has many benefits, and I love how radiant my skin looks when I used this moisturizer. You can also use this moisturizer under your makeup 🙂

See you all in September!

I agree. The foundation is one of my favorite attractions at the park.

Mellie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!! That looks like a pretty park to visit. I will have to check out the scar gel. I have an old surgery scar on my neck. No one really notices it but me, but I know it's there.

Looks like a beautiful month! Lovely pics, as usual!
Kisses, Paola.

From there, its been down hill!

Pilar said...
