Happy February everyone! We've made it to the shortest month of the year! I hope you've all warmed up after that crazy cold spell we had. If not, here are some of my current favorite things! I hope they warm your heart and bring joy to your life like they have to mine. XOXO
Thrive Causemetics Filtered Effects Soft Focus HD Setting Powder
This stuff is amazing!! I've tried a lot of powders over the years, never finding one that I was crazy about, but I've finally found my one true powdery love! I love the way this stuff feels on my skin (soft and light, not at all cakey) and it really does help to blur any pores or imperfections to give a nice even, soft-looking complexion. It even feels hydrating in a way. Plus I find it really fun the way the powder comes up through the mesh sifter - no mess on my bathroom counter! Seriously, give it a try (plus it's vegan and paraben free).

Sex Education on Netflix
Adam and I just finished the first season of this new show on Netflix and we loved it! It's basically about a group of high school students coming-of-age in England and it's funny, smart, and relatable. If you're looking for something to binge-watch, give it a try!
LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
My lips get so chapped this time of year, so I've been slathering this on every night before bed. It feels so good and hydrating and it smells nice too! You just rub on a layer before bed and then you wake up with softer lips. It has really worked for me this winter!
Available at Sephora, $20
S.W. Basics Original Cream
I have been rubbing this stuff all over my face before bed and I definitely feel like it's helping with dryness and giving me a nice glow. It only has three ingredients!! How amazing is that?! It really is clean beauty with ingredients you know and can pronounce: shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil. It goes on pretty thick (and my boyfriend jokes that I makes my face shiny), but putting it on before bed feels so good. I wake up with hydrated, soft skin!
