February Favorites



I'm more than happy to have February over as it means we're that much closer to moving into our new house! We are in crazy house mode around these parts, but I still managed to find a few favorites I've been loving this month.

I've been all about the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation lately. It's such a drastic coverage change from my usual BB cream, tinted moisturizer ways. It's not too heavy coverage by any means and leaves this amazing glow to the skin that really does look great in photographs. It's definitely a good'un.

MAC's "Crosswires" made it into my lipstick rotation this month. I'm feeling very spring-y and this pinky mauve shade is the perfect thing to brighten my spirits with the weather being all over the place right now. It's not overly pink though which makes it the perfect shade for a mauve obsessed gal like me. On the complete other side of the lipstick spectrum is Urban Decay's "714." I talked about this at length in my recent Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collaboration post so I won't repeat myself too much. The highlights? It's an incredibly matte lipstick that still wears well on the lips without being super drying. The color has the perfect undertones for anyone who can't seem to pull off the tradition red lipstick. It has me on the lookout for creamier reds with similar tonality in the future.

On to none beauty bits and of course there's always a couple planner things thrown in. I've never actually featured the Polaroid Zip in a favorites video so thought it was about time to pop it in. This handy little photo printer prints on sticker paper making it a breeze to add scrapbook like photos to my planner. Planner goals met. I've also been perpetually staring at my lace cover I recently snapped onto my planner. It's too gorgeous.

I finally got my hands on the very much belated Christmas gift from Alex. He ordered me The Great British Bake Off Big Book of Baking back before the holidays and it finally arrived at the start of February. I've loved flipping through the recipes and dreaming about all the delicious food I'm going to make in our nice new kitchen. 

What products have you been loving in February?

xoxo Kayla
