I am so happy that the Fall season is nearly here! There's just nothing more wonderful than a southern autumn. The air is cool and crisp, the colors are warm and inviting, and Fall fashions are just gorgeous. I can't wait to bust out my boots and light jackets! I also need to gather up my summer makeup stock and find some rich, warm autumn colors to work into my routine. What better place to start that task than my August Wantable Makeup box!

Ugh. You know what I hate? I hate being sick. I have a seriously crappy immune system so if someone sneezes in my general direction chances are pretty good that I will catch something. Fever just makes me not want to move so I've been layed up in bed all day. Today's mail did manage to cheer me up a bit though because the August Coco & Peri box arrived!

I have mentioned it before, but I have ridiculously small fingers. Like, really small. Rings are one of my biggest loves but it's so difficult to find sized ones that don't fall off of me. It's so bad that I once stuck my hand out of a car window and my wedding & engagement ring went flying off my finger onto the highway. By some miracle, I managed to find them but that just shows you how big the problem is. It's rare to find rings I can wear so I was giddy as a schoolgirl to find Jewelreveal.

I know I just finished organizing my beauty products but somehow, it has already gone back to a messy state. I swear, I manage to get it all sorted and pretty, close the drawer and once I open it up again, it's all in shambles. I don't know what happens. So here I am again, Birchbox in hand with more products to add to my collection and organize for the millionth time. Oh well!

I've been addicted to jewelry for as long as I can remember. I blame it on my grandmother and the mountains of shiny, colorful gems and baubles she let me play with as a child. She had a weakness for all things beauty and fashion and passed that down to me. To this day, I think of her every time I go shopping or get ready to go somewhere. If she were still here, I think she would love subscription boxes as much as I do. Especially ones like Flitwicks Box!

Now that school is back in session, there is an age old tradition that must be carried on - the after school snack. Every single day, that's the first thing on my sons mind. Sometimes we stop at the store but I prefer to have a ready supply of things waiting in my kitchen pantry. That's one of the reasons I love food subscription boxes so much, especially when they are affordable! One of my new favorites is Degustabox!

And we officially have liftoff on a new school year! Yup, that's it! Summer break (for us at least) is over and in addition to school, we've got football practice too. It's my son's first year to play and to be totally honest, such a full contact sport frightens me a bit. I'm an overprotective and overly cautious mom. It's just my nature! So while my husband works with him on sports, I try not to be so overbearing. Right now, I'm going to channel that energy into telling you darling dolls about the August 2016 Your Bijoux Box!

Books. Books. Books. So many books to read and so little time. No joke, I could stop buying them and crack down on my TBR list I wouldn't run out of things to read for probably two years. I blame a large part of this on book subscription boxes. They pulled me from a massive reading slump and I just can't seem to stop now. My newest monthly book box has just arrived and it's name is And The Story Begins.

One of these days, I'm going to have my own personal library. I'm serious, the number of books I own is completely ridiculous and I'm in dire need of some new shelf space. I swear, I have at least 100 books in every room of the house and I add more every month. With so many amazing book subscriptions like Bookcase.Club around, it's not hard to see why I have a reading addiction.

Do school supplies lists irritate anyone else? It can't possibly be just me. I mean I understand needing the basics (paper, pencils, ect) but why am I buying more cleaning products than those needed essentials? It frustrates me to no end. Ugh, but let's focus on something that's definitely not frustrating, the July Play! By Sephora!
