Happy Friday to all! August is half way gone and that means Summer is almost over. But to be honest, I'm so ready for the Fall season: cozy sweaters, hot tea, cool nights, and nature's most beautiful color palette. But let's not get ahead of ourselves and enjoy the last month of hot and sunny days. Here are all the things I've been loving in the past weeks.
Sweetener by Ariana Grande
It's finally here. Ariana's 4th studio album was released today and all I can say is that I'm obsessed with it. I get a very romantic vibe with this record. A lot of the lyrics are very sentimental, written from what I imagine is a place of bliss, love and new beginnings. If there's a message portrayed throughout most of the album is that life is short and unpredictable; don't be afraid to open up to love, new chances and be proud of who you are.
Some of my personal favourite songs are:
♥ God is a woman
♥ better off
♥ get well soon
♥ goodnight n go

This past weeks I've been really focused on taking care of my skin and teeth. I've struggled with acne and keratosis due to my autoimmune disease. My skin has improved regarding acne and spots but I still have some redness and scarring that I'm so desperate to get rid of.
That's why I'm trying out a Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. I'm also using a gentle face cleanser and a moisturizer with SPF. For those days where I'm out and about and the summer heat makes my face extra sweaty and oily I resort to these Oil-Free Face Wipes to clean my oily t-zone, cheeks and chin.
In an attempt to take care of my teeth and immune health, I've stopped using fluoride toothpaste and instead use an activated charcoal one. I make sure to look for one that is made out of natural ingredients like this Activated Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste.

TV Shows and Movies
It's still Summer, so my regular TV shows are still on break. But there are some shows that are totally worth watching and that I've been enjoying the past weeks,
The Bold Type
The Season 2 finale was August 7th. But this show is worth watching over and over again. I love it because it empowers women and discusses important topics about women issues that are not often explored in mainstream television. It also shows a side of working women that is inspiring to witness. Boss girls like Jacqueline, Sutton, Jane and Kat, and how they balance career, love, friendship and deal with hard situations that many of us have also experienced. Give it a chance if you haven't watched it yet.
Season 3 is back and it's even better than Season 2. I don't want to spoil it if you haven't watched the first episode, but let's just say Issa is about to make a life changing decision and tries her bathroom mirror raps for encouragement, she gets into a little bit of weirdness with a new side gig and Molly is all about a new life motto.
