Happy Tuesday, hope you’re all having a FAB week! I know this is a few days late, but the February flew by. So without further ado, here are this past month’s favorites!
Makeup Product– Since we’re just a couple weeks away from the first day of spring, I’ve been loving fun and bright eyeshadow colors like the Banana Daiquiri Super Shock Shadow from Colourpop. It’s a stunning bright blue that gives the perfect pop to your eyes without being too much. And the best part, it’s only $5!
Skincare Product– I just got the Trader Joe’s Rose Water Face Toner as a gift and I’ve been obsessed with it. It has such a nice spray nozzle and mists really nicely. I love using it throughout the day to refresh my face (even with makeup on) or right before I go to bed after doing my skincare routine. It also smells amazing!
Beauty Product– Since it’s been pretty grey and rainy in LA, I’ve been craving a tan and have been using the St. Moriz Instant Tan in the shade dark to get a little extra sun-kissed glow. It goes on so well, isn’t streaky and gives a nice, even coverage. And it’s only $9 on Amazon and comes with the cutest application mitt.
Hair Care Product– This month I’ve been obsessed with the Garnier Green Apple and Green Tea shampoo. It smells so good and gets my hair feeling so clean while also making it feel healthy and hydrated which is much needed and appreciated during these dryer months.
Clothing Item– Yellow button down dress from Forever 21. I bought this on sale over Christmas knowing it would be perfect for spring/summer and I’m so glad I did. It’s so comfy, cute and flirty and can easy be dressed up with some heals or down with a pair of sneakers.
Brunch Spot– Maybe it’s because it’s almost spring, or maybe LA is just really rubbing off on me, but I’ve been obsessed with Acai/Berry bowls recently. Berry Bowl in Eagle Rock has been my go-to for healthy, quick breakfasts. My two favorites are the Tropical Bowl and the Blue Majik Bowl with bananas, strawberries, blueberries, granola, lots of coconut and agave.
Restaurant– I’m adding this in super last minute, but I just went to a new find called Blair’s in Eagle Rock for dinner last night and had to add it in. It was so good and so reasonable. We ordered the meatballs with polenta and the bruschetta with burrata to start and I had the Gnochetti with pork sausage as my main and it was so good and the coolest atmosphere.
Sweet Treat– DONUTS. I’ve always been such a donut person, but I’ve seriously been craving them so much this month. I’ve always loved Colorado Donut in Eagle Rock, but I also stumbled upon the cutest new store, Leberry Bakery in Pasadena that has the best donuts and the sweetest staff.
Quote– “But the thing is, even if I could go back, I wouldn’t belong there anymore.” -Ccz. This past week was National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, and this quote was one that was constantly on my mind. It’s a reminder of the progress I’ve made and the places I’m headed. Even if I could go back and stop the behaviors that developed into an eating disorder, I don’t think I would. I truly think that everything happens for a reason, the good, bad and ugly. And I believe that out of every storm comes a rainbow<3
And on that note, those were all my favorites this month. Hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you all very very soon!
