February Faves




HAPPY WEDNESDAY! Today I’m bringing my favorite things of the month of February to you! I love the idea of recapping my month with things I’ve loved. I plan on doing these monthly, as long as they don’t get too repetitive (I am definitely a creature of habit) and as long as you guys like them! There’s going to be a mix of beauty, tv, books, music, health, fashion and random things. Pretty much just a list of things I’ve been obsessing over for the past four weeks. Enjoy! 



Beauty


My lips have been so dry lately. Between my trip home last month and the “cold” weather Florida has been getting, my lips can’t catch a break. I’ve been giving them a little extra love with my Popcorn Lip Scrub from LUSH.


Tea Tree Toner Water is finally back in my life. It was missing for close to two months and praise hands emoji it is back. I feel like every time I go to LUSH it’s sold out, but I finally got my hands on a bottle. I love this stuff for after I take off my makeup. I spray about 3-4 sprays on my face, let it sit and wipe it away with a cotton round. I just feel like it takes off that last bit of makeup, oil, or residue left over. It’s a nice refresher after a long day.


This month I discovered the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. I’m definitely a fan. It leaves my face feeling very smooth and de-clogs my pores. I don’t think it’s for everyone, it’s a very gentle wash and isn’t meant for acne issues, brightening or anything like that. I like it best when I alternate between it and my Clarisonic & Purity Made Simple.



My Lorac Mega Pro has been seeing a lot more love this month. As much as I love to buy and experiment with makeup, I tend to always gravitate to the same products. The original Lorac Pro palette is definitely my favorite, but I’ve been trying to branch out this month. My favorite shades are Dusty Plum, Wisteria and Cashmere. (If you have green eyes, try out some shades with a little purple in them!)

Health


I’ve been trying to drink green tea daily and while I can’t say the tea itself is a favorite, I’m about the benefits. Have I seen any of the 100000 benefits it claims? Not yet, but hey I just started drinking it. I guess my favorite is getting in the habit of drinking green tea. (PS I add a little honey to mine and I enjoy it way more!)


Strawberries have been my go to snack this month. I go through phases with different fruits, I’ll eat so much of one specific fruit for a while and then get sick of it. Lately, it’s been strawberries! I usually cut a few up and put them in a mason jar and bring them to work. Such an easy snack on the go.

Fashion


I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect black bag. I pretty much always carry around a big bag, because for some reason I feel the need to always have everything with me (You never know when you’re going to need something…). However, my bags have never really had any structure to them. I found myself always wishing that my laptop or iPad would fit nicely. I came across this one at Charming Charlie. It’s not my perfect bag, I really wish it had an outside pocket (I need a specific place for my keys and my phone). Other than that, I do really like it.


Obsessed is an understatement for my feelings toward this necklace. Probably my favorite birthday present of all time. I love how simple it is, just a single diamond. Definitely perfect to wear everyday, but also special enough to wear for an event or something. It’s definitely a piece I’ll have forever, and something I’ll always cherish. 

Random


GILMORE GIRLS. Okay, I tried to stay away, I really really did. Stars Hallow got the best of me. Rewatching the series is making me so happy! I’m trying to only watch 1 or 2 episodes a night, but let’s be real it’s more like 6. Rory&Jess forever.


I’ve been attempting to get my life together. LOL that’s probably a statement I have said daily, has it ever worked? Absolutely not. No but for real, this planner is the first step I’m taking to try to organize my life a little more. My life is by no means hectic, but I just feel better when I have things planned out and a place to write to do lists and all things like that.


Fall & Winter scents are hands down my favorite. I’m a little ashamed to admit I still have 11 Leaves/Sweater Weather/Tis the Season candles under my sink. There’s just something about them that makes me feel cozy and happy and all the things! However, my all time favorite Spring scent is Watermelon Lemonade. The other day Bath and Body Works was having all 3 wick candles for $12 so I picked up one three.





Hope you all enjoyed today’s post! 
Tell me, what were your favorites of the month?!


it’s been fun,
