February Favorites

I'm continuing with a newly made tradition of writing this type of post. I enjoy recapping things from the month and sharing some good stuff with all of you.

Favorite Post: Finding Your Place from Tay Meets Word. This post is SO incredibly beautiful. A must read.

Favorite Recipe: Chicken Parmesan Soup from Lauren of Say What You Need To Say. It looks so good, and not to mention Chicken Parm is one of my favorite dishes. This will be making it's way to my kitchen real soon.

Favorite DIY: Emily from Ember Grey knocked it out of the park with some DIY Bride & Groom Thank You Cards  and even more incredible is the sweet gesture and personalized details that came in to place. 

Favorite Products: After smelling and spraying this perfume on the daily at work I finally bought some for myself. If you've ever smelled Oribe products you know they are delicious. Bottle that heaven up in a perfume, and you've got yourself a winner. I absolutely LOVE this scent from Oribe...Cote d'Azur .

Sephora Citrus Brush Cleanser is life changing. No more Pinterest baby shampoo concoctions and laying out your brushes. One spray, wipe and go ... for a clean brush. Not to mention it smells so refreshing and is under $12! I highly recommend this product.

Favorite Moment: Receiving a suprise card in the mail from my friend Lauren of Lot 48. She seriously made my day and put a big smile on my face. I'm a huge fan of old-fashioned snail mail so it was really awesome.

Favorite New Drink: If you haven't tried it yet, run now and get the Tiramisu Latte from Starbucks It really is dessert in a cup. I treated myself during a Target run on my day off and really enjoyed it. It was a bit too much for something I could get daily, but then again, I shouldn't be drinking Starbucks daily. So there's that...

What are you loving for the month? 

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
