August went by in a blink and I’ve just been trying to soak up the kids as much as possible before they go back to school next week. I know with school starting and all the holidays between now and the New Year it’ll be here before we know it.
Last month I really focused on Ben’s room. I finally got it painted and the wallpaper arrived Friday (I know what my first back to school project is going to be ;)) so I’m excited to get back in there and finish up. I can’t wait to see his little face when he comes home from school and sees it for the first time!

I also got to work on our dining room refresh. Our new table came (see it in action here) and I’m working on ordering custom curtains, new dining chairs and mayyyybe even a rug. In an ideal world it will hopefully be finished before we host Thanksgiving, fingers crossed.

I rounded up the best of August, some of my favorites and and a few of yours too! You can see them all below!
1. Black cabinet – My favorite piece of furniture we own & currently 25% off!
2. The best Christmas garland – These are literally exactly the same as the Afloral garland (I ordered both) but less than 1/2 the cost. Currently under $30 + free shipping!
3. Round handled vase – love the shape and color of this one and its really substantial size.
4. My new sunnies – picked these cheepy sunglasses up this month & they’re my new fave.
5. Autumn Plum – grabbed this Pura scent and its yummy. If you don’t know what Pura is it’s a smart home fragrance diffuser and I’m obsessed. Now is the time to try use code LABORDAY for 20% off site wide.
6. Capiz Chandelier – Our bathroom chandelier is 20% off with code: NEWLEAF.
7. Apple watch band – I wanted to upgrade my band for those times I needed something less sporty. Super cute & comes with the tool to adjust sizing.
8. Favorite knit blanket – Love this thing! FYI- Queen size will fit most king beds!
9. Flicker battery operated tapers – perfect for all the holidays between now and New Years and they look super realistic- they’re made of wax!
10. Dry Shampoo– Hopped on the Living Proof Dry Shampoo train this month while there was a sale. They hype is real.
11. Faux pumpkin – bought a pile of faux pumpkins for our porch this year and this one is one of my faves. You can see more here!
12. New kitchen runner – our new runner is currently 25% off, no code needed.
13. Lounge pants – I grabbed these last fall in light brown & they’re my favorite pair of lounge pants. Currently on sale so I grabbed them in grey too!
14. Bathroom runner – I love this rug so much, highly considering getting it for our dining room too. Right now its 63% off!
15. Fall stem – my favorite stem this fall. Love how moody it is and its really great size too!
16. Never curl – I added these grippers to a bunch of our rugs last month & they are an actual game changer. Now all of our rugs lay flat & I don’t have to worry about the kids tripping.
