August Favorites – 2018

With the end of August, means the coming of Autumn, which happens to be one of my favorite seasons. The trees start to change color, the weather drops a little, and the sweaters start coming back out. Join me as I show you that I was up to this month, things I loved, and items I'm looking forward to trying in September!
