Where did February go? It’s almost March? Okay. Seriously though, guys, where are the months going? I feel like since I’ve had Jacob the months just fly by like nothing I have ever felt before! Well, it’s that time again where I get to share some of my favorites of the month with you.
Luna by Luna Cosmetics Highlighter in Calypso – I got this product in my ipsy bag for February and I LOVE it! It is absolutely gorgeous and looks like a dream on the skin. Over the summer I picked up a highlighter from e.l.f. that I liked but it was so hard to get any. I love this one because you do a quick swipe and you’re good to go. I also love that this highlighter has a gray-ish tint to it. It almost reminds me of the moon.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Illuminating Concealer – This product was another ipsy bag item I believe I got it in my bag in December or January and I just was able to try it. I fell in love with this product because of how incredibly it covers up the bags under my eyes. I have always been a night owl and my husband is an early bird and so is the baby. So I don’t get a ton of sleep because I just find it hard to settle at night. This stuff works WONDERS on the bags under my eyes. For real.
Royal & Langnickel Fan Brush – Last ipsy bag product but not least, this fan brush. I have never had a fan brush before and to be honest I didn’t see the benefit of buying one. Makeup brushes are expensive and I really didn’t think I would use it. Boy was I wrong. This brush works like a dream to apply highlighter and I’m so happy I got it. I likely wouldn’t have bought this brand in the store as I’ve never heard of it. But I actually like the brush a lot despite that. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s purple!
Scrunci No Slip Octopus Clips – Let me just start off by saying postpartum hair loss is ridiculous. I thought that I was in the clear because Jacob was four months old and it “should have started by now”. Boy was I wrong. This past month my hair has started falling out like crazy. One thing that I noticed was contributing to the problem is wearing my hair up all. the. time. Well wearing it down isn’t really an option because Mr. Grabby would then rip out the rest of my hair. So I decided to throw it back to the early 2000’s and grab some clips. These were the first ones I tried and I really enjoy them. They have grips inside the ‘claw’ parts which is really helpful if you have thick hair like I do. Best part? They don’t pull out any precious strands of the hair I have left.
Torrid Capri Leggings – It goes without saying that one of my goals for this year was to lose weight. Well, when I went on my little Torrid shopping spree this fall I got these workout pants and I love them so much. I love that Torrid makes clothes for women who are plus sized that aren’t frumpy. They take style trends into consideration while making their clothing instead of making everything baggy and just plain ugly. Coming from a plus sized woman, thank you Torrid!
Gilligan and O’Malley Sweatshirt – I was browsing Target and came across this light sweatshirt and I had to have it. This sweater had to come home with me because of how soft and almost silky the fabric is. Well, at the end of this month I now own it in three colors and I wear them all too often. This sweater has definitely become a staple in my “momiform” wardrobe!
Sparkle Vans – My go-to shoes throughout the winter have been my Torrid riding boots. Now that things are warming up a little, I’m able to wear my cuffed boyfriend jeans with my red converse and my other favorite shoe, my sequined and sparkly vans. I have had these shoes for a few years now and I absolutely love them. If you’re looking for a cute, every day shoe, these hold up very well.
Nike Flyknit Free Runs – One of my favorite ways to get out of the house is to go out for walks. The previous months have been so cold it’s been hard to get out to get these walks in! Now that we have had a few warmer days, Jacob and I have been going on walks almost every day. I had some running shoes that I love but they don’t work great for walking. Especially after pregnancy! I think my feet got bigger or something. Back to the point, these shoes fit almost like socks and are just so stinking comfortable to walk in. Personally, I need more stability in a running shoe, so I wouldn’t use these for running, but they work like a dream for walking!
Ello Glass Water Bottle – I am a water bottle freak. I have so many water bottles, but the problem I always run into with them is that the water eventually starts tasting like the plastic of the water bottle. It drives me absolutely bonkers. One of the reasons I have been holding off on buying glass bottles is because they just aren’t big enough. I normally carry around a 32 oz water bottle and they just don’t make glass bottles that big. The plastic taste of the bottles was really starting to get to me, so I picked up this bottle at Target and it is wonderful! I love that the water doesn’t taste like plastic at all and I love the style of the bottle as well!
World Market Potpourri Box – I actually received this potpourri as a gift from my nana and I absolutely love the smell of it. It smells so gorgeous and it looks gorgeous too! The container comes with more than enough to fill up multiple vases and the filler is pretty enough to just display in a vase. I have three around my house and I love the way that it looks and smells!
Crane Humidifier – I actually ran out to Target to grab this without doing any research because Jacob had a cold last month and I read this would help. Well, I absolutely love it. It’s not the prettiest thing (they do sell it in prettier colors online) but it works very well. I very much attribute Jacob’s cold going away so fast to the fact that we used this thing religiously while he wasn’t feeling well.
TinyBeans – iPhone|Android – Last month I talked about one of my favorite apps, Lifecake. Well, since talking about Lifecake, I found TinyBeans and I much prefer it to Lifecake. Not only does TinyBeans allow you to upload photos and moments and videos like Lifecake; it also allows you to upload the child’s weight, height, and it allows you to view their percentiles and check in on developmental milestones! In my opinion it’s far superior to Lifecake and if you want two free months of premium, you can use my referral link!
Mercari – iPhone|Android – I had a ton of stuff in my closet that I wasn’t going to try to wear post-baby. I didn’t want to throw it out and a lot of it had tags on it still. It’s very easy to sell your items on and even provides the shipping labels for you! When your item is packaged and ready to ship, all you have to do is drop it off at the post office!
American Housewife – If you haven’t watched this show, do yourself a favor and watch a couple on demand episodes because it is absolutely hilarious. The show is about a middle-class family who lives an in upper-class area in Connecticut. They moved to this area for their daughter, Anna-Kat to get help with her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder through her schooling. Her older two children fit in perfectly and love their new home while Katie and Anna-Kat struggle to fit in, hilariously.
