While I love blacks and grays, every now and then I want something a little more earthy feeling. Dark brown and cream are a great alternative and I love how they look with lots of gold jewelry. This dark brown leather jacket has been a staple in my closet for years (and I have to admit, it’s seen better days and I really need to get a new one) and I love how it looks with these lighter brown leather boots.
My February beauty favorites always seem to revolve around hydration. Whether it’s needing hydration for my hair or for my face, it’s always a month where I need a little extra help. I guess February is when my body revolts against winter, it just can’t take it anymore! This last month was no exception. Luckily, I had a couple of tried and true products that I went back to and I picked up a fun new scent. My February beauty favorites ended up being the NUXE Reve de Miel Lip Balm, the Bath & Body Works Tutti Dolci Pink Peony Body Cream, and the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface.
I love to wear lots of comfy layers on my days off. I will usually run a few errands and I like to look cute when I’m out in public but then a good portion of my day is spent on the couch blogging and watching Netflix. While I don’t mind changing several times throughout the day (and I do that fairly frequently), I prefer outfits that are versatile enough that I don’t have to. Leggings and tunics are staples for me and I love cozy sweaters that I can wrap up in if I get cold. This lace hem tunic is one of my new favorites and it’s currently on clearance for less than $6!
I love BECCA highlighters and I’m always waiting for the brand to release new ones so I can try them! The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Prismatic Amethyst is their latest limited-edition shade and I couldn’t wait to check it out. Prismatic Amethyst is the newest shade in a sea of unusually colored highlighters that have been popping up recently. This is described as a lavender duo-chrome with a holographic effect to it. Initially I was unsure if this highlighter would work for me as I’m pretty warm-toned and this looked really cool and light but once I tried it on at the store, I had to have it. It’s so pretty and a lot more subtle than I was expecting.
It’s no secret that I am a lover of pink lipsticks. I’m not quite sure exactly how many I own (mostly because I’m too embarrassed to count) but it’s a lot. Like, a lot. I can’t help it, I just love them all! They’re great during the winter to add a pop of color to my all-black-and-gray wardrobe and when it’s warmer out they pair perfectly with more colorful outfits. I love all pink lip colors whether they’re light, mod pinks or more nude shades but I especially love bright pinks. I frequently have people ask for recommendations or about the color I’m wearing so here’s a list of the 7 best bright pink lipsticks that you need to own!
I love holidays that require you to dress up. It’s so fun to play along and wear something with a specific theme. I’ve always loved going all out for Halloween and making sure every detail of my costume was just right but other holidays that call for outfits fitting a general theme can be just as fun. Everyone knows that you have to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day and red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July. It’s nice to see everyone dress a little over the top and have fun with it. Red and pink are perfect for Valentine’s Day and I love adding a little cheesiness with lots of hearts and love-themed accessories. It’s never difficult for me to come up with the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit.
