My August 2016 Sewing Pinup Haul was exactly what I needed this month.

As my video talks about, I had a very bad fall at the beginning of the month that left me pretty incapacitated for a couple weeks. Four weeks after my fall I’m barely at the point where I can do a simple yoga sun salutation without TOO much discomfort (progress!) The items I picked up in August are all wonderful and exactly what I needed, though, to cheer me up and keep me going when I’ve been stuck on the couch!

Items I picked up in August that can be purchased online are below

 Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner: 20$ for such an awesome, awesome eyeliner. I’m trying to figure out how long before it needs to be replaced, though, so we’ll see. Some of the reviews I read said that it dries out pretty quickly, but I’ve had it for a few weeks now and it still seems to be doing ok.

OPI We The Female: In my video I was on my 2nd application of that polish and I’m due for another manicure- I all ready want to use it again. It goes with everything I own and it just feels… natural to wear it? Definitely moreso than a bright pink or blue. I can see this being a staple color.

Sebastian ReShaper Hairspray: Recommended to me by my hairstylist. I don’t think I can ever go back to cheap hairspray… ever.

Digitally Printed Floral on a Butterfly Jacquard: Kind of on the thicker side, but love the texture and how vibrant the colors are on this. I love florals like this- reminds me of a Baroque painting.

Jessica Simpson Mandalaye Flat: All ready my go-to shoe while my foot recovers from my fall. I want to pick up a pair of these in black.

Either way, everything in this August 2016 sewing pinup haul makes me happy and will definitely see quite a lot of use for the rest of the year. I anticipate maybe picking up some more nail polish, a new set up kitten heels when my foot finishes healing, and definitely some more fabric as I get ready to sew for the holidays. Ohh- can’t wait for that!
