Favorite Things- August 2018

Welcome to my first “favorite things” post!

I am very excited about this series. “Favorite Things” will be a monthly series on my blog where I share some of my current favorite entertainment, products, & trends! I decided to make this a series because I love reading other people’s recommendations & this topic was highly requested by my Instagram followers!

Anyone else hear Julie Andrews singing?

TV SHOWS:

“Making It”

Crafting competition game show hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. Kinda like “Parks & Rec” meets “Cupccake Wars”. 

Available on Hulu

“Stay Here” 

“Fixer Upper” for short-term rental properties. Hosted/designed by one of my favorite “Trading Spaces” designers Genevieve. My only complaint with this show is that they don’t discuss budget for the reno/decor, but overall I really like it!

Available on Netflix

MOVIES:

 “The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society”

 Based on a novel, this romantic dramedy is about a London author & a book club that was formed on the island of Guernsey while it was occupied by German forces during WWII. Lily James is stunning in this movie & it has a very old-timey feel in both the setting & plot.

“I Feel Pretty”

I was initially turned off by this movie because it stars Amy Schumer, who I usually find to be too crude for me. But I heard some great reviews so I gave it a watch & I’m glad that I did. If you want a light film about body positivity, then this is the flick for you.

BOOKS:

“Next Year in Havana”

This novel by Chanel Cleeton was Reese Witherspoon’s July bookclub pick. It’s about a granddaughter who travels to Cuba to explore her grandmother’s cuban roots. Having a cuban grandparent myself, I really connected to this book & the characters. Can’t wait to read Chanel’s next book!

Chickpea Snacks 

I picked up a bag of these at T.J. Maxx & tucked them in my purse for an on-the-go snack. The bag lasted a long time & a serving size kept me full in between meals. These would be great for someone who has nut allergies but wants something comparable. I have only tried the Chili Lime flavor but will definitely be buying more!

$4.00 per bag

STYLE:

Revlon Volumizer 

I scored this little tool during Prime Day but would pay full price for it in a heartbeat. It’s like having a Dry Bar blowout every day. I get compliments every time that I style my hair with this tool. It’s a must-have!

$59.00

Woven Materials

I recently re-organized my master bedroom closet. I love the way it turned out. I used LOTS of woven baskets to organize & hide clutter. To see more photos & behind the scenes watch my Instagram story highlight titled: “organization”!

FASHION:

Slide Shoes

I have been LOVING slides this summer. This trend will be easily transitioned into fall by pairing with jeans. & you can continue on the same look when it gets too cold by trading your slides for some mules.

PARTY:

Havana Nights

In July, I attended a fun cuban themed party! Check out my favorite Cuban Spotify playlist [here} & throw your own Havana Nights Party before the summer ends!

Hope you enjoy my recommendations! What have you been loving this August? Leave me a comment below or on my instagram @jaclynhumble & let me know!
