I can’t believe August is OVER, at least we still have another few weeks of Summer to soften the blow (because even though I’m the ultimate Fall girl, I’ll be participating in Summer activities as long as possible).
But onto the good stuff…I actually gave myself a little bit of a blog goal this month because I’ve been really struggling to get content out. I made a promise that I was going to publish 15 posts during the month of August…as you can probably tell that definitely didn’t happen (this is only my 6th post of the month), BUT August 2019 was actually my highest trafficked month EVER (in 9 years). So while I technically failed at my original plan, it was a big win in my book. I never thought I’d actually type this, but I’m pretty proud of myself for this. And let’s see if I can make September even bigger than August!
August 2019 Travel
The only place I went this month was to Long Island to the beach for 2 days and to New Jersey for a wedding, but I got up a TON of travel content that I hadn’t had a chance to earlier this summer so if you haven’t read my New Orleans Guide, Bahamar Guide and Coney Island Guide.
August 2019 Style
I’m still in full on Summer mode as you’ll see from scrolling through the rest of this post, BUT I did round up my favorite Fall items from H&M so definitely check that out if you plan on doing a little shopping over the long weekend!

August 2019 Beauty
I posted my first IG TV video this month and while I almost didn’t hit publish because I’m such a perfectionist, I’m SO glad I did because it seems like you guys loved it. Definitely look out for more in the very near future and if you haven’t seen the first one yet I embedded it right here for you to watch!

Most Popular Items of August 2019
It’s no surprise to me that this dress was the most popular item of the month that I shared. When I wore it for the first time I was doing one of my morning chats on Instagram stories and I don’t think I’ve even gotten more DMs about something I was wearing. You guys clearly loved it, and I think you loved it even more once you found out it was only $19! And if you use code: JACKIEG15Q3 you can get 15% off!
