I am back again for my monthly favorites. Like last month, my favs will include not just makeup/beauty/skincare stuff, but also random life things like food (the biggest love of my life), books, Netflix shows, etc…Favorites, commence!
1 | Revlon Lip Butter: Tutti Frutti
This is an oldie, but a goodie. I remember when the Revlon lip butters first came out and every makeup-lover was pouncing on them. I have two tubes of this specific color because I love it so much. It’s not too bright on the lips and I like how it makes me look instantly more youthful and awake. Plus, it smells yummy!
2 | NYX Lip Liner: Mahogany
I have always loved NYX lip products and I have been so into this shade. It really is a nice mahogany color; beautiful on the lips, glides like a dream, and has pretty good wear. They are also super affordable at $3.50 each! For sure a win!
3 | Medjool Dates
Random, I know, but I can’t believe I haven’t had dates until this year haha! I buy the Trader Joe’s Medjool Dates and they are the perfect, sweet snack. Especially if you are craving caramel or candy, this is a great alternative. Natural sugars, super sweet, and has a tacky consistency that matches sweets. You can also use dates to sweeten smoothies and to bake!
4 | iZombie on Netflix
I didn’t think I would like this show but I was bored and decided to try it. It’s actually super entertaining and funny! Quick description: a girl transforms into a zombie and uses her powers to work with a crime investigator. I like how it’s a combination of romance, comedy, and suspense. Definitely a show to watch!
5 | Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
I’ve had this baby for some time but I have really been noticing its effects on my skin. My face looks more supple, hydrated, and brighter after every use. You apply a thin layer before you sleep and basically sleep with it on. You then rinse it off with warm water in the morning. Another pro, it has a refreshing, spa-like scent that most Laneige products have. If you are in need of some hydration, check this product out.
6 | Hand-made Coconut Almond Soap
There is nothing better than some organic, hand-made face/body soap. I raved about this a while ago and how it diminished my acne and I finally have my hands on a new batch. Unfortunately, these soaps are made by my friend and gifted to me but I know that Whole Foods sell natural soaps that are similar to the one I use. They last for a long time and I have been using it every day in Feb.
7 | Trader Joe’s Coffee Bag Brewer
Ok, this stuff is the shiz. I noticed that Trader Joe’s started selling a Coffee Bag Brewer for around $1.50 and I had to get it. You basically pour hot water into the bag, let it seep, and pour the coffee out of the little spout. It makes two cups of delicious coffee! How convenient eh? It is cheaper to buy coffee grounds and brew at home, but this is something you can get once in a while as a lil treat. Can you tell that I love Trader Joe’s? Haha.
8 | Colourpop Super Shock Shadow: Desert
This an affordable, pigmented, creamy transition color that I love to use on a minimal makeup look day. You can build it up or just apply it on its own; such a great color for numerous eye looks! Like the other Colourpop shadows, this one is no different. Awesome quality for a fraction of the price. I would consider this particular shade a staple for make-up lovers. It’s also an easy color to start off with if you are a beginner or a noob (like me).
This month has been the month of fitness. I stopped circuit training because it was getting way too expensive, so I re-activated my LA Fitness membership. There is something very rewarding about pushing yourself when it comes to fitness. Now that I have a general idea of how to work out properly, especially when I am targeting certain areas of my body, working out is actually kind of fun. I would have NEVER been able to say this last year. I am also lucky enough to have my boyfriend, Sean, who is very knowledgable and helps me write out my workout regimes. Maybe one day I’ll go into detail and explain my fitness goals in a post!
These were my February favorites for this year! Hope you enjoyed this post and please like/comment if we share any favorites or if you have any particular favorites from this past month, I would love to know ❤ See ya’ll soon.
