February, March & April Favorites

I haven’t written a favorites post since January, because I wasn’t trying many new products. Now, I’ve collected some new (& old) favorites in the months past, so I’m giving you more of a seasonal favorites list today.

Here’s a look at some goodies I was feeling in February, March, & April!

Beauty Faves

Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask from LUSH

As you may have noticed, I’m a fan of LUSH’s Fresh Face Masks. But, sometimes they stink. This babe is not only a fabulous cleansing mask, but it smells of warm, sweet honey. The ground almonds in this mask are fairly abrasive, but if your skin is tough, it makes for a great exfoliant.

Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 from Nordstrom

I’ve used this lip balm on & off for like 7 years. It’s always been in my lip balm rotation. I bought a new tube a while back, and wasn’t as in love as I had been in the past. Currently, it’s the perfect formula for my lips. I think it’s important to try products at different times in the year, or in your life. Something you’re not happy with in fall, could be perfect for you in the spring. It’s all about second chances babes!

Fashion Faves

A-Line Top from H&M

Stripes are everything. A good section of my closet is black & white stripped. So, when I saw this a-line top at H&M, I knew I had to add it to my collection. It’s a lovely relaxed fit, with a generous short sleeve. I also love the higher crew collar. This top is a perfect wardrobe staple.

Coquette Slipper from Ugg

My family sent me these as a gift and I cannot believe I survived without them for 25 years. I’d been needing slippers for some time. I just kept wearing my boo’s, regardless of the fact that they’re like 5 sizes too big, so I’m sure he’s as happy about these Uggs as I am. They’re warm & cozy like my Ugg boots, but in the ease of a slip-on.

Food Faves

Mini York Peppermint Patties from Amazon

I am so into Peppermint Patties as of a few years ago. I never liked them much before, but now I’m hooked. So for Valentine’s Day, I bought a themed pack of Mini Peppermint Patties. They’re such a nice after dinner treat because it’s like having a mint, but they’re chocolates!

Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Red Berries Granola from Nature’s Path Organic

You babes know how I like my yogurt, and this new granola has taken my breakfast to new heights! This crunchy goodness is divine. If you’re a chocolate lover (of course you are) you’ve got to give this granola a try. It’s loaded with sweet cocoa flavor, dehydrated raspberries & strawberries, and little chunks of dark chocolate. I don’t even have to sweeten my plain greek yogurt when I add this stuff because it’s so rich and flavorful on its own.

Home Faves

Shades of Glass Waterlily & Aloe Soy Candle from Target

I purchased this candle as a birthday gift for a friend. I could not stop sniffing this bad boy while in the store, so I purchased myself a little votive in the same scent. Because the candle is soy, it doesn’t throw a huge amount of scent like a paraffin candle could. But, even when unlit, you can smell the sweet, fresh perfume from nearby.

Cup and Saucer from H&M

I feel like such a lady when I have my tea or coffee is this precious babe. When not in use, this cup & saucer lend themselves to my home decor by sitting perched on a stack of books in my bookshelf.

Personal Faves

“Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding on iTunes

I could not get enough of this song in February! (I’m still playing it). I love Ellie Goulding; her voice is that of an angle’s. I really like the whole Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, but this track is my fave.

A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley from Amazon

As I’ve been reading the most famous book set in every state, I’ve noticed a trend. I’m most draw in by books about families, specifically families who live on farms. Smiley’s novel centers on the dynamics of three generations living and working on the family’s Iowa farm. As you read on, more of the family’s past is exposed and it gets juicier and juicier. It’s truly an engaging read.
