Shopping Favorites August 2015

August Favorites! (Click the pics to buy!)


David Dunn’s new album Crystal Clear has been on my iTunes playlist 24/7!  August was a very difficult month for me and his lyrics and melodies are so uplifting and motivational.  It’s hard to pick a favorite song, but Today Is Beautiful is one of the tracks on repeat.

I will always be a makeup junkie, but skincare is the fundamental step before it all! My skin has been acting up lately especially with the summer heat and traveling, and Cerave is a great choice for anyone with sensitive skin who just wants some good ol’ simple hydration and protection. Awesome for irritated skin or anyone suffering from redness or eczema!

You don’t have to be a student to rock a backpack! It’s functional and fashionable! I personally like faux leather ones with zipper detailing. They are versatile, durable, cruelty-free, AND add edge to any outfit!


Oh canelés, where have you been all my life? I discovered this heavenly treat in Bordeaux this month, and I’ve got to say I legitimately fantasize about these babies and don’t even have much of a sweet tooth!!! As soon as I got back to NYC, of course I went on a search for them. Can you notice a difference between the Bordeaux-born and the expat?

My Favorite Things:
These are some of the things I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT! Life Favorites 🙂



Aloha Bay Chakra Candles
You all know I am obsessed with candles.  I light them all over the apartment in the morning and pretty much have them lit whenever I am home.  I love that these candles balance the chakras and bring a general sense of well-being with their aromatherapy scents.  They are not so overpowering that the room smells like a yoga studio, but just enough to make you want to breathe in deeper!  I love all of them, but the healing one is my favorite.  “The heart chakra is the center of compassion and love”, it says.  Good enough for me!


I Paw’d by Dog Diggin Design
I mean do I need to say anything about the adorableness of this toy? You have one, so why shouldn’t your dog? This way, they can email you selfies 😉


My Sony RX III Camera
I literally carry this everywhere I go. In addition to shooting video with it for my daily vlogs for The Very Berrie Life, this takes incredible pictures. It has the biggest sensor for a point and shoot so the depth of field is amazing! I find myself grabbing this more often than my other baby, the Canon 6D DSLR.


SodaStream Revolution
No more lugging bottles of seltzer from the grocery store! Save money, time, AND energy with this amazing invention! I love sparkling water so I find myself drinking a ton more water than I would normally. You can flavor it as your heart desires or enjoy it simply like I do. There are a few different models of SodaStream, but the Revolution is, in my opinion, the only way to go! It’s automatic so you don’t have to sit there pumping and there are four levels of “spicy”!!! We use it literally everyday!


Look out for exclusive BYoonique merchandise COMING SOON!
