Monthly Must-Haves: August Edition

Well, I blinked and August was over! Although I’m sad the summer is officially done, I’m so excited for September and everything that comes with fall these next few months. I discovered a few awesome things this month, so I wanted to share a couple of my favorites with you all!

Monthly Must-Haves: August Edition // Classy and Kate

Cookie Chips :: HannahMax Baking was the absolute sweetest to send me 6 of their amazing cookie chips flavors to try. I have always been more of a salty/crunchy food-fan, so these are totally my thing! They’re sweet + salty, crunchy, have the BEST flavors and most importantly are made with all-natural ingredients. (They even have gluten-free versions)! I love all of the flavors, but I’m especially in love with the sea salted peanut butter and cinnamon sugar cookie chips. Seriously, if you are looking for a light treat to fill that “sweet” craving, these will do the trick. And a little tip…keep them out of sight (for your own good), or they will be gone within a day!

Elle Magazine :: I’ve always been a magazine-lover, and I think that’s a huge reason why I’m going into the field of journalism…I love the combination of writing, designing layouts & photo spreads and all the elements that come together to make a beautiful page. Like I’ve said in my bio, my dream job would be to work at a fashion/lifestyle magazine! Elle seriously inspires me, and I love flipping through the pages of fashion, beauty and spotlight pieces. This month, Elle interviewed Cara Delevigne (who is one of my favorite fashion + beauty icons) so that was definitely a favorite. Is anyone else obsessed with magazines?!

iPhone Lock-Screen Background :: This favorite is a little bit different than usual, but it was something I wanted to share because I think it is so cute! I always love changing up my iPhone lock screen, but I was looking for something more chic and came across this marble background with pink detailing. Seriously, just look up marble iPhone backgrounds and you will find so many adorable options!

Front-to-Back Earrings :: I’ve always loved this earring trend, but I’ve never been able to find a pair that I liked! These are my favorite and make any look extra chic…especially with a low side bun! (I couldn’t find the exact ones I have, but I linked a few that look similar).

Coffee Mug :: Need I say anything about this? It’s just too cute! Yes, college is slowly getting me into coffee, but the truth is that I just couldn’t resist it.

Now I want to know…what were some of your favorite August finds?

    1. Thanks, Rachel!

  1. Ohemgeee! I love that marble iPhone lock screen background! I never really thought of just simply Googling iPhone lock screen images to use haha. You’re so clever babes!


    1. Yes! I seriously love doing that…I always find such cute lock screen images (especially from Lauren Conrad)! You’re the sweetest, Melissa! ❤️

  2. All of these are great but I LOVE those earrings! They’re so unique and pretty. This month I’ve been loving Ponds anti aging face cream (which is dirt cheap from the drugstore!) and smart pop white cheddar popcorn! Random faves but the best!

    1. Thanks, April! And that’s awesome…I’ve heard a ton about Ponds face cream so I definitely need to give it a try! And popcorn is the bomb. I’m obsessed with Smart Pop too!

  3. Such cute items! I love the marble lock screen idea and who doesn’t need cute mugs for their morning coffee?! But the sugar lover in me has to say that the best are those cookie thins! I am so obsessed with them. Funny but true story – I first tasted the cinnamon ones in Hawaii and thought they only existed there. So I bought a bunch of bags and brought them home with me needless to say I saw them at Target shortly thereafter. Haha! xoxo, Christine

    1. Thanks so much, Christine! And no way!?! I seriously love the cinnamon ones…they’re TOO addictive!

    1. You’re the sweetest! Glad you enjoyed the post, Jennifera!

  6. Great post! I really enjoy your writing style. Magazines are definitely one of my favorites, Elle being one of them. I’d say my August favorite was discovering the style of Japanese women, I just think they’re all so well dressed and it helps that the sizes here are smaller.
