February Favorites

February is gone (holy *&%$). It seems a bit crazy, but I haven't even noticed. School makes all the days and months just blend together. "What? It's February? I don't care. I just know that I have an exam at the end of this week that I am not prepared for."

I wanted to do all beauty things, but I decided to give a bit more variety.

#1 Bite Amuse Bouche lipstick in Meringue

I bought this mini lipstick in a set with Bite Fig. I originally had this idea in my head that I hated nude lipsticks. Boy, was I wrong. I bought it because I wanted Fig so badly, but I figured buying the mini for cheaper would be a good way to try it out. In the end, I loved Meringue much more than Fig! I think I'll begin to like Fig as the weather gets warmer. For now, it's much too peachy for me. I'm such a fan of Meringue. If I run out, which it looks like a real possibility, I'd repurchase. The scent is lovely, and it's the most comfortable lipstick I've ever worn.

#2 NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

For this past year, I thought that NARS Sheer Glow foundation was my end-all be-all of foundations. It was. I've recently run into some real oily skin problems since starting a new skincare product. Nothing will stay on my face. It just melts off, Sheer Glow included. I was majorly bummed. So I decided to pick myself up the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint. It's perfect for my oily skin. It applies so nicely, and it gives me that perfect coverage that I need. It also contains SPF, which is a huge plus in my book. I've been wearing it non-stop this month. It's been staying on my face pretty well even without a primer.

#3 Scatter dot H&M Dress

Funny story. Last month my brother-in-law got married up in Calgary. I had the cutest dress to wear that flatters me really well. As soon as I unpacked I realized that I had forgotten my dress hanging up on our curtain rod. I put it on there so I wouldn't forget it.. well I did. I didn't have a dress to wear! I had to go to the mall and buy myself a new one (oh darn..). I ended up purchasing this adorable dress from H&M. I've worn it as many times as I can since I did. It worked out for the wedding, and now I have a fabulous shift dress will slightly flared sleeves. Two thumbs up! I bought it in a couple sizes up to lengthen it so it is a bit too baggy, but I love baggy clothes.. 

#4 Baltic Amber candle

With spring around the corner, the candles I tend to gravitate towards contain more light scents. My favorite candles are the deep, woodsy, musky scents that I burn constantly in the winter (Blake loves these, also). We recently burned out all of our woodsy candles, and so I found this older candle I got years ago. Baltic Amber! It doesn't even come in this packaging anymore, but it smells so good. I've been burning it everyday, and I can't get enough. We'll definitely burn it out by this next month's end!

#5 Father John Misty

Have you guys heard his new singles? They are on repeat in my apartment. His voice soothes me. I'm so stoked for his new album next month. I'll be listening to it non-stop.

To participate a formal party you always need a good dress. For me, I love wearing a long sleeve black turtleneck dress. It makes me look sexy and it's comfortable.
