Monthly Favorites-August

Monthly Favorites-August

August has been an amazing time! I have discovered some great things this month that have easily become my favorite in the month of August. So, naturally I thought I’d share with all of you!

Television

Anne with an “E”

While flipping through my brother’s Netflix account one day (thanks Dominic), I saw a show called ‘Anne with an “E”. It intrigued me but, it wasn’t until about 2 weeks ago that I decided to finally watch it. I sat down to watch the first episode and immediately fell in love with the series.  Anne with an “E” is based off of the book ‘Anne of Green Gables’. Though I never heard of the book before watching the show, I am oh so interested in reading it now.

To give a little insight of the show… Anne with an “E” is about an orphan in the 1800s in Canada who finds her forever home with a brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert on their farm in Avonlea on Prince Edward Island (in Canada).  We watch Anne as she grows up and experiences childhood for the first time at 13 years old. We see her going through school, bullies,what she went through in the Orphanage, and hear her amazing stories with her incredible imagination an story telling abilities. There are only 2 seasons so far (they’ll be filming a 3rd soon) and I unfortunately finished both seasons in a little over a week 🙁 . I am eagerly waiting for season 3 to continue on with the Cuthbert’s and Anne’s adventures.

Music

Maren Morris album HERO

At the beginning of August, I went to Niall Horan’s Flicker World Tour where Maren Morris opened up for him. I (if you already didn’t know) am a big Country Music fan, so naturally I was really excited to see Maren live because I have most of her songs on iTunes already. I love her debut album but, hearing her sing some of my favorite songs live, was incredible!

Hair Care

EVA-NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer

I got this is a promotion box at the end of July. I didn’t try this until a few weeks ago and I’m obsessed!  First, you shake the spray a little bit, then spray it in your hair after your shower when your hair is damp (for me, it works best when my hair is a little dryer, but still wet). You shake it lightly then spray all over your hair then you style it as normal.  I prefer air dry my hair. Plus, because it has argan oil in it, I wake up in the morning it’s shiny and soft.  This has been my favorite thing to use when I want to take a quick shower and don’t want to condition my hair. Plus it’s for ALL hair types!

 

Until Next Time…

How To Throw Your Own Royal Wedding Party

How To Throw Your Own Royal Wedding Party

The Royal Wedding is in only 8 DAYS! Now, if you know me, my forever celebrity crush is Prince Harry.  Although I am not the one marrying him, I am so excited to watch him wed and to watch as an American girl (Rachel Meghan Markle) gets her fairytale and her own real life (British) Prince!

I threw a small Royal Wedding party with William and Kate and now I’m going to do it again for Harry and Meghan!

 

First, you need to dress in proper attire, and the includes a hat!

I would suggest this hat, which is the hat that Kate wore to her sister Pippa’s wedding.

 

 

Second, proper refreshments!

Because it’s the British Royal Wedding, I’m going to be drinking some British teas. My favorites are Yorkshire Tea and English Breakfast Tea!

 

 

Third, Bouquet of flowers:

For flowers, I picked Peonies! Peonies are currently in season and they’re my favorite flower (hence the name of my blog).

 

 

Fourth, After Will and Kate’s wedding (and after they made their debut on the balcony), they had a brunch back at the palace. When they ate, so did my party. It was around 6am Pacific Time when that happened, so we too ate a buffet breakfast foods!

For me and my guests, we had croissants, mimosas, pancakes, bacon, and I even made a quiche! But simple toast, eggs, and bacon will do the trick as well!

 

 

Last But Not Least, Dessert! Every wedding has some form of dessert, right?

For this wedding, I decided to put an American twist. In Honor of Meghan and soon-to-be our very own American Princess, I’m baking American cake pops!

 

I hope your Royal Wedding Watch Party is as fun as I had writing this!

Tell me how you will be celebrating in the comments below!

Fat Sal’s

Fat Sal’s

This post is not sponsored

A couple of weeks ago while in Los Angeles, I stopped by Entourage actor, Jerry Ferrara’s Hollywood location to try his restaurant which is called Fat Sal’s.

It has a “sports” type vibe with multiple flat screens showing all types of sporting events and fun music throughout.

Fat Sal's

 

With a big menu to the left of the cash register’s (or iPad register’s) you can easily find what you want to eat! They have a variety of food such as Sandwiches, Burgers, Hero’s, Salad’s and Wraps. I ended up getting their sandwich called the Fat Sal.  The sandwich contains roast beef, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fries, brown gravy, mayo all on an extra wide garlic hero, which is basically garlic bread.

Fat Sal's

I wasn’t sure about my choice at first.  Especially when I realized that I forgot to order it without mayo (I hate mayo). But, when I got it and took that first bite there was no turning back. Although very unhealthy (definitely a “cheat day meal”) it was so amazing! I ended up going back a second time to take my Dad so he could enjoy the wonderful food and atmosphere that Fat Sal’s has to offer!

I highly recommend stopping at one of his many locations!

 

Until next time..
