5 Things I loved in August

Here are the 5 things I’ve loved in August.

Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

I picked up an affordable foundation option for my darker shade when I’m self-tanned and I’m so impressed by this formula! I’ve had a few patients at work even asked me what I started using. I picked up shade 103 (yes, that’s my tan shade) and I have worn it regularly. It held up well in the humid Savannah heat over the weekend, where we spent the majority of our time exploring the city outside. I will probably pick it up in a lighter shade as the seasons change.

Rifle Paper Co + Corkcicle Cup

I’ve carried my Corckcicle cup around for the last year and I couldn’t pass up getting a smaller version in this fun Rifle Paper Co print. I take it everywhere with me and I love always having cold water. I bought stainless steel straws on Amazon because I wanted something easy to wash.

Joules Waterproof Packaway Jacket

This month I was introduced to Joules and I have loved their fun colorful prints! You may have seen me wearing this rain jacket on my Instagram stories or this scarf (both now 25% off) throughout the last month. There are so many items on my wish list, like this pink jacket for Fall.

Pleated Ruffle Sleeve Hem Top

I ordered a few items from Shein and ended up with a lot of fun, really affordable pieces. One in particular was this fun pleated sleeve top. You can see my full review and try on haul in last weeks post.


I attended my first blogging conference and I had the best time meeting new friends and learning about the industry. I left with valuable inspiration and I’m excited to see how Strawberry Chic evolves throughout the rest of the year. You can see a full recap on the conference and 10 blogging tips I learned from the conference here on the blog.

I hope you’re having a fun and restful long weekend! I’m writing from Savannah, Georgia to visit some friends from PT school. It’s felt so good to be back and I have some fun travel content coming your way! Check out my IG stories highlight to see what we’ve been up to.
