Let me tell you I’m not a fan of my birthday month ending and I’m really not ready for the boys to start back to school this month. I just feel like summer FLEW by and now the boys start school in just 3 weeks and I really think we need at least a few extra weeks of summer, like maybe another 6! Any one else feel that way? It literally just flew by.
As much as I’m not thrilled for August to already be here I AM thrilled to share these few easy August Obsessions with you! I will leave them up in the side bar with a quick reference and purchase link in case your interested in adding a little SPICE or SPARKLE to your August with a little more STRENGTH! 😉
First Up is the BURST Tooth Brush!
I discovered these brushes from a Sister Queen of mine when she asked to sell her product at my quarterly Open House for my Boutique MomQueenBoutique.com . I was looking to buy electric toothbrushes for my husband and I anyway for our lake house, so with her discounts she offers and the promotional advantage of not EVER having to worry about remembering to order replacement heads (THEY COME STRAIGHT TO YOUR MAILBOX LIKE CLOCKWORK every 3 months! LOVE this feature, you can’t beat it!) To support a sister, I figured I would give it try so I purchased one for my husband and I. We BOTH love them so much I moved our old SoniCares to our lake house and replaced them with his BLACK Burst & my ROSE GOLD Burst!
I love the different speeds and features, and I especially love the convenience of the replacements heads auto shipped so I remember to change them out. Not to mention, my Burst is way cuter to look everyday! 😉
I loved these so much the next time she came back I bought 2 more again for the boys! Everyone in our home is now supporting a BURST that’s how much I like these! Matter of fact when she comes back I think I’ll be doing the same for our lake house!
If you interested in her discount or want to Love brushing as much as we do now her link is below. The White & Black are $39.99 and the Rose is $69.99 and includes a travel case! 😉

Next Up My New Brow Obsession:
LOVE LOVE LOVE these new brow pencils! THIS IS A BROW GAME, GAME CHANGER LADIES!
Ok For those of you that know me know I HAVE NO BROWS! If you read my previous Blog Sharing a Few Make Up Tips or How to Add Brow Dimension or What’s in my make up drawer you will see one of my greatest tricks to make it appear that I have brows is using 2 different brow shades/pencils.
One is a lighter brow to fill my line, some days I’ll use a brow shadow or some days I will use you basic brow pencil tip. THEN AFTER I use this new bad bay! I used to use a darker shade with a very sharp, hard thin tip brow brush to create thin hairline strokes. Not any more since I discovered this pencil! I use this in 3.75 color AFTER I fill my brow with the a blonde shade. I use this brown to create hair like strokes! It works like MAGIC and makes it so much easier!
Last week as I was traveling I realized my travel case was low on perfume after arriving to my destintion, thankfully there was a Sephora directly across the street in the mall from my hotel. Since I can’t stand trying new perfume in the store smelling a bunch to discover one I like best because honestly it gives me the WORST headache that last ALL day, so this little sample set was perfect!
I just grabbed this box of Sephora favorites and threw it in my travel case. Over the week I tried and wore one each day. This skips the headache and allows to pick one I love the best because it COMES WITH A COUPON CODE TO REDEEM FOR A FULL SIZE TRAVEL SPRAY OR ROLLER!
I discovered I loved CANDY by PRADA and I’ll be using my code for a Travel Roller to keep in purse this fall! 😉 Win-Win! What better way to discover perfume you like though and avoid burning your nose and getting a headache from in the store smelling a gazillion perfumes. 😉
Last for August is a my Monthly Read:
This is what I started last week! Other than the fact I was running out the door for the airport and realized I didn’t have a book in my carry on and if my laptop died or worse the airplanes wifi wouldn’t work like last time my OCD was going to drive me bonkers and I would regret not having something.
I was running out the door and realized this so I quickly just grabbed one I haven’t read off my office shelf without looking on the way out. This was what I left with. I actually don’t know why I bought it either, I think this was one of those online deals that if I bought 2 or 3 with the same theme it was a better deal as a bundle. This was one of those and I actually am really happy with it!
Nothing against the cover but not something I normally pick up. Not my typical girl style read, so this one for me was one I’m thankful I didn’t judge by its cover. I’ve been really enjoying it. Its a very easy read ( I also love the size of the book, I can keep it in my purse!) It’s all about manifesting and clarity and is actually refreshing in a clear and easy vocabulary style. Its talks about stress, change, mindfulness. To me there hasn’t been anything completely amazing that I have found in it, BUT for some reason I haven’t put it down! Just a few chapters in but I keep picking it up! Great end of the summer read to transition into a new season.
There you have it, that’s August!
I will leave these up in the side bar all month I hope you can find one helpful to try out this month as you prepare for fall! If you do try one, or have tried one, I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below!
Happy Friday Mom Queens!!
