Monique’s Must-Haves: August 2021
Is it me, or did summer just fly on by?! Like fall… and soon winter, are literally right around the corner. I don’t think I’m ready! Well, this month I’m kicking off something new around here. Every month I’ll be sharing my absolute favorite products of the month or things that I call Monique’s Must-Haves! You’re in for a treat because I found some pretty amazing stuff! Items will range from beauty, home, books, fashion, you name it! So let’s get this show on the road. Here’s a list of my favorites for August 2021!
August 2021 Must-Haves
Clean Skin Club
Ok, so one thing that I’ve stopped doing this summer is using towels on my face! If you think about it, towels hold so much bacteria, even after washing them! The thought of doing so just makes me cringe! I was so happy when I discovered Clean Skin Club single-use towels. These towels are soft, biodegradable, vegan, and super-durable! And as someone with sensitive and acne-prone skin, it feels good knowing that I’m using something that’s not packed with a bunch of bacteria. But my obsession with these towels doesn’t stop there…. these things really give you a bang for your buck because they are so versatile! You can use them for a bunch of things in addition to drying your face. Personally, I like to use them to remove my face masks, DIY face wipes, or cleaning off the bathroom counter after rinsing my face off.
Now, I know the idea of spending money on single-use towels may sound absurd to you, but these things are $20 or less. And to make the $20 box, which is the XL size stretch I just cut them in half so that I’m getting double use! I’m telling you guys you have to check these out. I just restocked and ordered 4 boxes. (Y’all thought I was playing when I said I was obsessed, LOL). And because I love you guys, I’m even going to share my code with you so that you can get 20% off your purchase! Now you HAVE to try them!

Cow Print Phone Case
I don’t know what’s going on… but I’ve been just loving all things cow print lately. As you can see below, I couldn’t resist pairing my bikini and phone together during my recent trip to Miami. Cute right? I found my phone case on Etsy and it’s just perfect!

It wouldn’t be a list of my favorites if a book wasn’t featured! I’ve been aware of this book for years but never felt compelled to pick it up and read it. And I have to say… SHAME ON ME for waiting so long to read this book sprinkled with gem after gem. If you’re looking for some clarity or inspiration in your life I highly recommend reading this!

Aira facial steamer
I don’t play about my self-care routine. And my weekly steam has been leveled up a notch! I’ve been seeing the Aira facial steamer all over Instagram and I was like… I need this in my life. Let me tell you, it was the best purchase ever! My steam sessions are so calming and I just love that I can incorporate my favorite essential oils to enhance the experience. Steaming offers so many benefits like improved blood circulation, and improved skin complexion. Click here to purchase yours now and use my code for up to 50% off SITEWIDE!

Laneige Lip Sleeping mask
Who doesn’t want softer lips? Especially with the colder dryer months ahead. My sister put me on to this lip sleeping mask by Laneige (I got the peach iced tea flavor) … well kind of. I saw it in her bedroom and was instantly intrigued. What I love about this lip mask is that it is not too thick or sticky and my lips feel so much softer. Get you some!
Nike Free Metcon Training Sneakers
I’m a sucker for a cute and comfy sneaker. When I saw these I just had to have them! They are perfect for running errands, a day at the gym, or whatever your heart desires sis!
Lancome Cils booster XL
If you’re someone that loves dramatic lashes but doesn’t have the time to put on lash strips or commit to lash extensions, THIS PRODUCT IS FOR YOU! One of my faves Jackie Aina posted this on her Instagram and you know me… I had to see what all the hype was about. This booster makes my eyelashes pop so much it looks like I’m wearing false lashes! I really love it, my only dislike is that it can be hard to clean off so just take your time!
