February Favorites


So we're already halfway through March and I already can't even remember what I did in February. I do, however, remember what I liked! First up, I don't know if you guys are aware of my bomber jacket obsession but it's just gone up a notch with this souvenir jacket from Topshop. I absolutely love the Japanese inspired designs and it's reversible so it's like having two jackets in one. The side you can see in the photos is obviously blue and silver with a quilted pattern and the other side is red, black and silver without the quilting. It's sold out right now but the site says it's coming back soon.

I've also started a Mac palette which I'm really excited about because I've wanted one for ages and I've been experimenting with eyeshadows more lately. I actually have nine of them filled now but the ones you can see here are Typographic, Deep Truth, and Moon's Reflection. I prefer to wear more cool tones so these are perfect for that. Let me know if you'd like to see a post once I have them all filled. I've also mentioned the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil a couple of times now and after using it for a few weeks, I find that my skin looks a bit brighter and my family has even started using it as well. My dad thinks some of his wrinkles have gone down but I can't be sure (lol). It's definitely pricey but I think my skin is something worth investing in and it just feels really luxurious to use.

I also found a new nail color that I really love called Keep Your Gray Job by Nicole by OPI. It's a grayish blue and I think it's a great transition color between winter and spring. Not too dark, not too light, just perfect! This Lush Dream Cream actually belongs to my brother but he leaves it in the bathroom so I've started using it as well (shhh). It's really creamy and quite thick so it's great for dry winter skin. Lush can basically do no wrong in my eyes. Lastly, I got Glossier's Balm Dot Calm with some credits I had wracked up and it's amazing! It smells like coconut and I'm not sure if it's just me but I can smell a hint of coffee as well. It can be used obviously on the lips but also on other dry places like your hands and such. It's a thick gel like consistency so it's really nice and moisturizing. If you want to check out their stuff and get 20% off you can use my link here and it'll apply the discount automatically.

  11. Lots of blue, love it. Also, I think that blue/gray nail color would be a great hair shade. I think I may have to bite the bullet and order something from Glossier, because I hear so many great things about the brand. What would you suggest for a first order?

    1. I've actually only tried a couple things but I'm a big fan of the Boy Brow. A few of my friends have tried the whole Phase 1 Set with the primer, cleanser, skin tint etc and have loved all of it so I think you pretty much can't go wrong. I really want to try the new concealer as well.
