February Favorites

February Favorites

So I tried to record a video sharing my favorite beauty products and random finds for the month of February but I experimented with a different corner of my office and the results were no bueno. I don’t have time to refilm so instead I’m sharing a blog version of my February favorites!

Hair

Last month I tried two different fairly new hair products. First up, Jane Carter’s Curls to Go line was super moisturizing and lightweight. The Untangle Me leave-in was my favorite from the collection, and I used it several times on both wet and dry hair, especially to maintain this super easy style I wore for a week.

I also tried Aunt Jackies Flaxseed Gel line, which gave me the supple twistout I wore in all the pictures from my February photoshoot. I have a thing for rich butters so the Seal it Up Hydrating Sealing Butter was my Feb bae.

Beauty

I’ve been using the UrbanSkinRx Flawless Complexion package since January and by February I felt like they were making a noticeable difference in my hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation. The Even Tone Cleansing Bar reminds me of black soap without the dryness, and I quickly swipe a Clarifying Gly-Sal pad on my cheeks and forehead each night to keep acne at bay.

Regular microdermabrasions & laser light therapy sessions at Skinprologica by my aesthetician, Julie, have been my bi-weekly treat. Sloughing and zapping my way to renewed skin while getting to take a nap is my definition of fun times!

These Eylure lashes had me feeling myself for fashion week! Now I just have to figure out how to apply them on myself…

NYX lip lingerie in Teddy is my perfect nude, and the NYX Liquid Suede in Industrial Paradise is the blue my ombre lipstick dreams are made of.

Jonathan calling my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal highlight “dust” is the funniest thing that happened in February.

Home/Life

I made these Carnal Dish wings for Superbowl (which feels like ages ago) and. they. were. amazing. I made them a second time with a different sauce and this is officially my go to wing recipe.

I can’t stop gushing over our invitations… they’re just so pretty! Now if I can just get people to RSVP…

Speaking of wedding, we got bowties for the ringbearers from this black owned business! Aren’t they the cutest polka dotted things?

I sorted and organized my jewelry into this Umbra box from Target, which is exactly what I needed to declutter my nightstand. Next step, organizing the closet!

LOFT BY UMBRA AVANTE JEWELRY BOX - WHITE/GRAY

March fave predictions…

The pants I’m wearing to my bridal shower tomorrow… actually just everything about the bridal shower & my bachelorette later this month!

This NYX Mineral Stick Foundation as my everyday base… once I find my right color.

New underwear from Naja! I’m looking forward to finally having matching bras & panties!

Have a great weekend!

    There were a lot of products to try out. Some I will have to try one day especially Jane Carter new line and Aunt Jackie. I hope that they are at the WNHS next month. Have a wonderful time tomorrow!
