August Favorites | TV + Organization + Clothing

August 2014 Favorites | Cup of TeaI typically have at least a few beauty items in my favorites recap, but not this month. I just didn’t buy anything that was favorite worthy.

But I have plenty of favorites, nonetheless!

Planner | You’ve probably already seen my blog post on how I set up my Moleskine notebook to be my own, custom planner.  But it’s just rocked my socks this month! I feel a little more organized, and that should always be a favorite.

The Killing | I mentioned how much my husband and I were enjoying this show. If you love mysteries, crime thrillers, detective dramas, etc., then check this out! The entire series is on Netflix!

SaconneJolys YouTube Channel | I don’t know why these daily vloggers make my day, but they are such a delightful little family! They are a favorite this month because they are an Irish family, but recently moved to London, so I’ve enjoyed watching them all get settled.  Check them out!

Instagram | Yep. Instagram made the list. Instagram is like the social media platform meant for me. All pictures. Loads of interaction. I haven’t been as active this past month on Instagram like I had been previously, but I’ve been enjoying being a stalker on every else’s feeds 🙂

Old Navy Rockstar Skinny Jeans | It’s embarrassing, but I’ve been wearing my maternity skinny jeans since I was pregnant. Which was basically this time last year. Yikes. They were comfortable, but the reason I had such a hard time giving them up was because I couldn’t find a pair of dark skinny jeans that were comfortable, soft, and weren’t bunchy around the ankle. Enter the Rockstar Skinnies from Old Navy! I ended up buying these in the short length, which I think made the difference! | This blog has been popping up on other blogs for the last month or so, but if you haven’t heard of Un-Fancy yet, I’ll just say it’s fabulous! Basically, Caroline has streamlined her wardrobe into a minimalist capsule wardrobe, and creates seasonal looks from a collection of items from the capsule, as well as a few new pieces purchased for the 3 month season. If you’ve ever been interested in a minimalist wardrobe and having a quality vs. quantity existence, then check out this blog! It’s amazing!

Anything you’re loving right now? Would love to hear about it!

    Right now I’m loving neatly folded piles of laundry and planning for my traditional Fall baking (much more planning this year with a baby!). I too love ON rockstar skinnies!! And I don’t have any inclination of giving up maternity jeans any time soon, they’re way too comfy! I’m liking this un-fancy blog, it’s a good time to purge my closet in the midst of unpacking. I unfortunately have clothes hoarding tendencies.

    Just finished watching your video . . . and Wendy says to me: “I want another movie with her.” Lol! You have a two year old fan. 🙂

    I totally wanted to do your Moleskin hack but didn’t have time, so I caved and bough a Lilly planner. Fail on my part:/ Also, love Old Navy pants. And I never really used Instagram until I started the blog, but now I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
