August 2015 Favorites & an Earth Kiss giveaway!

(I have not been paid to write this post, and all opinions below are my own. However, it does contain some affiliate links, and Earth Kiss kindly sent me their awesome face masks to try for free.)


Before I get into today’s post, I want to congratulate Keeley, Maureen, Antonia, and Rebecca, the winners of the NuNaturals giveaway.  I contacted all of you ladies via email, so look out for my message.

If you didn’t win, you have a chance to enter another fun giveaway down below.  It’s a beauty related one this time!

And onto my favorites for the month of August…

Wunderlist App


I don’t know how I ever survived without this app!  It allows you to create to-do lists, grocery lists, and manage work projects, but the best part is that you can share them with family members, friends, and/or co-workers.  MT and I share the grocery list, so he can add things to it that he wants (like Fruity Pebbles…sigh).  We also have a Movies to Watch list which really comes in handy when we are trying to brainstorm for things to watch on the weekends.

Andalou Naturals Night Cream- smells like roses

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Heavenly Night Cream for Sensitive Skin

This cream is my new holy grail night cream. If you don’t like the scent of roses, you will probably hate it though- just to warn you!  It is very nourishing, and my skin is always glowing and soft in the morning. I swear, Andalou Naturals is just incredible in general.

Earth Kiss face masks

Earth Kiss Face Masks

I’ve been trying to do more “spa nights” at home lately, and I have been loving the cruelty-free facial masks by Earth Kiss so much.  I use the Detox Mud mask to get rid of all of the gunk and build-up in my skin, and my other favorite is the Moroccan Clay pore refine mud mask because it makes my face feel so soft and smooth.  Earth Kiss kindly offered to host a giveaway for readers of The Grass Skirt, and you can register to win on their Facebook page.  

Alba Botanica Coconut Cream Lip Balm

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Lip Balm in Coconut Cream

I apply this lip balm every morning before I do my makeup and every night before bed to moisturize my lips overnight. It is inexpensive, cruelty-free, and smells fantastic!

Grace & Frankie


If you read my chit chat post last week, you know that we canceled our cable subscription.  I am still getting my TV fix in many other ways, however, especially through Netflix on demand.  I’ve rediscovered Felicity and The Wonder Years, and I have been really into an original Netflix show called Grace & Frankie starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. MT liked the show at first, but after a few episodes, he said it was “too girly”.  Boys…


What were some of your favorites for the month of August?  

Oddly enough (for me), I didn’t have any standout food favorites during the month, but with all of the seasonal fall foods coming out lately, I am sure that September will be a different story!

  1. My favorite TV show right now is Zoo – scares the pants off of me, but somehow it draws me in to. I love the human/animal dynamic.

    The one thing I am absolutely loving in Florida is the fish and seafood available – YUM 🙂 Your son would love to see the gators down here – in a big city with water areas (aka swamps) with gators and oh the bird life is amazing too.

    Happy Day – Enjoy!

  2. I enjoyed Grace and Frankie so much too! I may have blitzed the entire show in a weekend 😛
