February 2017 Recap
It's officially March! Whoa, what? I feel like I blinked and February just passed on by. Before I begin sharing inspo and content for this brand new month, I wanted to share a February recap. February is the shortest month of the year but it's definitely one of my favorites because pink, chocolate, and flowers. Need I say more?
I started off the month by sharing a couple of new beauty products I've been trying out. Haircare by Kristin Ess, skincare by Lather, and new cosmetics from Becca Cosmetics. Sometimes it's nice to hit refresh and try new beauty products to see what works and what doesn't. I shared details on each of these brands and which specific products I'm trying out in this blogpost, here.
Rocksbox is my one of my favorite monthly subscriptions. It's happy mail that is always welcomed at my house and comes filled with three high end pieces of jewelry, which you can choose to keep or give back. The monthly Rocksbox membership fee is $21 but this fee can be applied as credit towards purchasing pieces from your box. I always end up keeping a piece or two because I always manage to fall in love. You can sign up and get your first box free when you use code forallthingsprettyxoxo.
Pink jackets and soft lips. I shared the photo of the pink jacket on Instagram earlier in February because I saw that it was marked down 40% off! Such a steal! It's one of my favorite items in my wardrobe right now and I'm so glad a handful of gals were able to purchase it after I shared. Make sure you're following me on Insta (username: forallthingspretty) to make sure you get in on the action anytime I share when one of my favorites goes on sale. On the right, my lip mask from nugg that has been keeping my lips soft and supple this winter, because winter skin is so real!
Valentine's Day is never complete without a little Galentine's Day party to celebrate your favorite ladies. I set up a bar cart with lots of sweets and invited my favorite gals over for a little girl time. Check out my dessert-only bar cart set up when you click here.
This month, I found out just how flattering tunic tops could be. I came across this particular one while browsing Nordstrom one afternoon and completely fell in love with it. Between the print, the off the shoulder detail, and the flattering longer length, you can't go wrong. See more of this look and my top five favorite tunic tops in this blogpost, here.
Chocolate for Valentine's Day? Yes, please! I filled my purse with chocolates from Godiva and flowers and went off to share them with loved ones.
Spring vibes in February only seem appropriate when flowers are involved, right? I shared one of my latest app obsessions, where I purchased this beautiful market basket from The Little Market and boho printed dress from Thistle & Finn. This app is so good, it's like a mix between Pinterest and Instagram that you can shop from. See more of this look and read more on the app when you click here.
Flatlays and flowers. Two of my favorite things to share on my Instagram. If you're a fan of both, feel free to follow me so you don't miss out!
Another one of my favorite moments of the month is coming home to a pink package on my doorstep. Ipsy is always a favorite because it's filled with 5 makeup goodies that are always so good! This month, my favorite was that pretty pink Luxie brush peeking out of the denim glambag. You guys, I saw the sneak peek of March's makeup bag, it's so pretty! I can't wait to get mine and share! See all the products and initial thoughts on each when you visit this blogpost, here.
Becca is the sweetest and sent over a magical box that housed their newest highlighter. I shared an unboxing on my Insta-stories but keep an eye out for a photo on Instagram soon. The inside of this package gives off magical rainbow unicorn vibes, it's so good!
Cold and gloomy usually means dressing casual, at least it does for me. After a rainy weekend, the sky cleared up just long enough to go outside and enjoy an afternoon outdoors. I dressed in denim, a knitted sweater, and stayed warm with my favorite blush jacket. Click here to see more of this outfit that was perfect for an afternoon walk down the pier.
Remember earlier when I shared that I was trying out new skincare? Later in the month, I shared a review featuring this trio of skincare from Lather. I got to try out a facial oil, exfoliating gel, and cleansing oil from their chia seed & passion fruit skincare collection. I don't want to spoil anything but my skin is so happy right now. Click here to see the full review and personal thoughts on each product.
Weekends are pure bliss, don't you think? You can spend them relaxing and unwinding after a long week, with friends and family, or in your happy place (mine is the beach). February was filled with all of the above and my heart is so happy.
If you're still here, thank you! Thank you so much for recapping the month of February with me. I'm still in slight disbelief as to how quickly it went by. I have so many great things planned for the month of March and I can't wait to share. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your weekend and make sure to come back on Monday for a brand new post.
