August 2021 Favorites

We are slowly but surely moving into Fall season! I know we don't have a change of seasons in our humble hometown, however, you gotta admit that it's been pouring down a whole lot as of late. It even rains through the night, perfect for that extra cuddle under the sheets. I am a fan of rainy weather... when I'm indoors! πŸ˜Š A little drizzle in the open is fine, just not when it's chucking down with rain and there are winds that send my umbrellas flying and have me soaking.

For this week's post, I thought I'll share with you some of my favs in the month of August.
Took this idea from Lydia Millen, whose blog I recently discovered.

BEAUTY – I can be quite picky when it comes to picking a fragrance but there is no denying the fact that I love myself a good scent. Recently, I have been enjoying Amber Musk by Aerin. Been wanting to try this scent out for so long but it was a really expensive brand, so I waited around till there was a good deal for it before snagging myself a bottle. Not great at describing scents, yet I would say that this scent is musky, slightly sweet yet not overpowering, like a comfortable hug yet still sexy at the same time. You have to take a whiff of it at your nearest Sephora the next time you pop by. It is a good one. Not to mention that the bottles are so gorgeous as well!

RESTAURANT – Had a recent girl's night out when the restrictions were slightly lifted and we were able to eat in groups of five yet again. (YAY!) We had the nicest dinner at Marcy's, a place I've been wanting to check out for a while now, but due to Covid, the plans keep getting cancelled off and it has already happened twice or thrice before! The decor in the restaurant is slightly eclectic with a huge bar (yes, they serve up cocktails) and lots of hung photoframes and vintage looking table lamps. They are predominantly well-known for their seafood so def order them fishies. My fav was the Wagyu Tartare surprisingly and they serve up a mean Pistachio gelato as well. Highly recommend!

FOOD OR DRINK ITEM – I've been on a Korean food kick if you aren't already following me on Instagram (it's @fluffedup), you would know that I've been loving all things Korean now - even learning ν•œκΈ€! Recently, I made this Dakgalbi dish that was so easy and so delicious, IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Not kidding. Check out my Instagram page and find the recent photo and click through for the recipe. Your friends and family will love you.

NEW PURCHASE – I finally made the plunge to upgrade and give all my tech devices a facelift! My 7 year old Macbook Pro for a new Macbook Air with the M1 Chip, my 5 year old Ipad Mini for a new Ipad Air with the Apple pen!, and my 5 year old Iphone 10 for a new Iphone 12 that I scored from my friend at a really good deal! Super chuffed with all of them 😊

GAME CHANGING FIND – Believe it or not, I recently discovered the use of AirTags. Viewed a video by Tamara where she was mentioning that she has an AirTag placed into each of her luggage when she's traveling, that way she is able to track and see if the luggage even boarded the plane or got left behind at the airport. It even shows the exact country location that the luggage is in. It's friggin amazing! I have already purchased myself a set of them just to prep for future travels. This is how geared I am to travel soon next year. Please let my Amsterdam trip come through!
