My favorite month of the year is here! August always represented the last sweet summer days to me, new school supplies, and my birthday. I’m actually really excited to share your favorites the past couple of weeks because I shared more in July than I have in a while! I’m finally getting into my content groove and am happy to be back. We just arrived home from our trip to Sun Valley, Idaho, so content like that will be delivered to you this month, along with some long awaited requests I’ve been working on. Can’t wait to share!

Until then, enjoy my monthly favorites. Everything is linked in the collage below except for number 1, 2, and 10. All items are hyperlinked below via text. Enjoy!

  1. Fellow Products Carter Move Mug + Slide-Lock Lid. (c/o) I’ve shared Fellow products for a while now. Nick and I are obsessed with all of their items and this slide-lock lid is no different. It is an amazing update to their Carter Mug which fits in your cupholder and offers an easy sipping solution. A must for all of your coffee and tea lovers!

  2. Adarabella Designs Calming Collar. I bought this for my sister for part of her birthday present since she is a therapist. It uses EDMR techniques for calming and is really pretty too. I love functional mixed with aesthetic, plus you’re supporting a small, woman owned business!

  3. Quince Linen Shirt and Shorts. I was wanting a set to wear around the house that made me feel good, put together, but also comfortable. This fits the bill and the budget! I honestly couldn’t believe the price and quality. A big thumbs up from me! Nick says I look like a wilderness explorer, but a cute one at least. Hah!

  4. Between Two Kingdoms by Suleika Jaouad. I wasn’t expecting to love this book so much. It is non-fiction and completely heart-warming and heart-wrenching. I don’t want to say too much, but wow.

  5. Show Me Your Mumu Johns Button Down. After buying last year’s version, I had to buy this version for summer. I’m obsessed with it! It fits oversized and I could definitely wear the S, I ave the M in both shirts. This year’s version is also available here, but I purchased it from the other link due to the fast shipping.

  6. Rivals (American Royals Book 3) by Katharine McGee. Okay LOVE. I adored the first one and was somewhat disappointed with the second one, but the third one is wonderful. The only issue I had is that I thought this was the last book and was so sad when it was over and the story wasn’t concluded. Already looking forward to the last book’s release!

  7. Amazon Crop Tank. This is a wonderful basic. I shared the Bodysuit version last month, but I wear both for different reasons. It’s thick but breathe-able and not see-through. Can’t beat it for the price!

  8. Yeti Tundra 45 Cooler. I purchased this for Nick for father’s day and he loves it! We have used it at the beach, but it is currently holding diapers in our living room - hah! Such a dad gift, but very useful. I bought from this website because you can use the discount code and actually get a discount on Yeti products, but it looks like they are sold out of the size we have.

  9. Primally Pure Vanilla Citrus Deodorant. (c/o) This scent is amazing! It is for sure a new favorite. It smells like a yummy orange cake, but not too sweet or overpowering. You can also get the scent in a similar body butter (citrus and mint) or a lip balm (creamsicle). Use coupon code ELLEMULENOS for a discount.

  10. Lunya Airy Cotton Shirt and Shorts. (c/o) I have the Lunya silk and pima cotton, but this woven set is just as amazing. I love wearing them around the house for an elevated at home look. I probably wouldn’t wear the whole set out, but I would wear the shirt! Receive $20 off your purchase of $100 or more with discount code LAURENMGIFT20.

    Ok now that my birthday week has come, we can start prepping for fall. I get so annoyed that autumn prep has started earlier and earlier, not because I don’t enjoy it, but because I feel like it glazes over my birthday and takes focus off of enjoying the last few moments of true summer. Cheers to apple cider donuts and crisp leaves!
