February Favorites


I practically almost forgot about my February favorites. To the point that when I started drafting this blog post I called it 'March Favorites.' Poor February, I never have been a fan of you. Although I'm missing this month's YouTube favorites video, I still wanted to round up the few items I loved in February because they're too good to miss.

Up first is our wedding photo album. After months of waiting for our photos and video it finally arrived and honestly it's pretty damn spectacular. It's a nice large size and made with heavy cardboard pages to stand the test of time as I often find myself paging through it. It has found itself at home on our coffee table since it's too pretty to tuck onto a shelf.

As for beauty bits I've fallen into a routine and have barely switched what products I've used for the entire month. I've definitely found a system that works for me but I have been really enjoying the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact Foundation. I've written up a whole post about it if you want a longer, more detailed review, but it's such a well-thought out product that's just the right amount of buildable coverage and a surprisingly great shade range.

Although winter is starting to fade, my skin seems drier than it has been in months. Anytime this starts happening I break out the trusty Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and any dry skin is gone in hours. It's so thick, rich, and sinks into the skin nice and slow like an overnight mask should. My skin looks plump, happy, and hydrated after one use. Seriously.

I didn't want to pass up talking about my February favorites because of one thing in particular. I just finished reading Wool by Hugh Howey and my mind is still spinning from the crazy post-apocalyptic adventure it took me on. There are so many twists in this book you won't see coming. Although it doesn't give a year, it's obvious that this book takes place in the future when the planet's surface has become inhabitable and people have been sent underground to live in a massive silo. The imagery is so vivid you can visualize the size and scope of the silo and its contents without any trouble. It's fantastic. Definitely one of the best books I've ever read and one I'll be recommending to anyone who asks and probably to anyone who doesn't too.

What things did you love in February?
