Hello friends, can you even believe the end of February is here! Finally.
February feels like one of those months that drags along forever, even though it’s the shortest. Not sure how that works, my guess is because it lies right in the middle of Spring and Winter. So by this time we’re kind of sick of the cold, just waiting for that Spring air! Ah, I just love Spring time.
Speaking of loves, it’s time for another edition of February favorites, well, monthly favorites to be exact. This month was a short and sweet one, but that didn’t stop me from finding tons of new favorite things. Okay, some aren’t new, but they’re my favorite things in any case.
I’m not too sure what I did before coming across coconut milk. Compared to almond milk (which I still love), it’s incredibly rich. You need just a little amount to get a full effect of the flavor.
For whatever reason, I always avoided baked oatmeal because when I looked at other recipes, the final product came out looking so wimpy and small. Even though this isn’t the most voluminous Breakfast in the world, it fills me up wonderfully. I’m still surprised by this, I also find it much bigger than some of the other ones I’ve attempted to make before.
Dark Chocolate With Sea Salt.
Oh man. Does this even need an explanation? If you haven’t tried the dark chocolate and sea salt combination. Do it now, I can’t describe how well the flavors blend together. They say it’s good for your heart and a great antioxidant, so I’ll just keep on eating it.
Black Americano…with a dusting of cinnamon.
Maybe cinnamon in general should be a favorite…I think I may add it to everything.
I’ve even tried converting to adding some pizazz to my morning drinks, but I just can’t do the sweet route. I like my coffee strong, black, and plain. It’s the only way I feel wide awake in the mornings. Coffee just doesn’t feel right with all the milk and sugar added.
Favorite Beauty Finds
Bobbi Brown Bronzer.
For skin products, I am extremely picky when choosing new items. I have very pale and sensitive skin, therefore I have to be careful what I use on my face. Bobby brown is one brand of bronzer I’ve been able to trust completely, ever since I completely cleared up my skin.
This is one topic I could go on and on about. Especially different makeup products I use, and what helped clear up my skin. I could do a post if anyone is interested?
OPI – An Affair In Red Square.
Let’s keep this one simple. Red = bold and gorgeous.
I know this show is probably incredibly outdated and overhyped at this point, but I can’t get enough of it. Sure, it started off slow and took me the first few episodes to get into. But, now I see why it’s an addicting show. The drama, the era, the accent, the culture, I love everything about it.
Now, I still need to finish Season Two so no spoilers please.
If you’ve read my blog at all, you know I’m obsessed. I even have plans to take my teacher training this April!:)
Try free online workouts like blogilates. My go-to for at home pilates workouts. Casey is cute, fun, and super motivating. There’s no excuses now to not get a workout in.
A brilliant book! I’m going to go out and say this might be one of my favorite books of all time. That’s big since I’m a total book worm. I can’t wait to check out the movie now!
So simple to add a little pop into your wardrobe, just brighten it up.
There’s nothing better than a stunning piece of bright clothing that instantly puts a smile on my face and some swag in my step. I’ve been super excited about the upcoming bright trends. Bright is the new black.
With that, see you later February. Good riddance.
