February Favorites

HUNTER BOOTS: I’ve been trying to decide on a color of Hunter boots for a few months now, and I finally picked up this pair in Lipstick. They came in on a rainy day, so it was basically meant to be. Compared to my other rain boots, these are way more comfortable (they allow more movement and the bottom feels like an insole). I’m looking forward to wearing them this upcoming spring! They are not as fuchsia in person by the way.. 

FORMULA X TOP COAT: As seen in my Mani Monday post, I’ve been absolutely loving my manicure routine.  I always end up biting my nails when I get stressed, but since painting my nails with a gel formula I can proudly saw I kicked the habit (for now). Note: the picture is the base coat..the clear top coat didn’t show up well.

CONTOURING: Now I have always been a bronzer lover, but this past month I’ve been specifically enjoying contouring with this brush and bronzer duo. I used to be all about it, but I guess somewhere along the way I got lazy and forgot about it. Glad it’s made its way back into the routine! This bronzer is great for it because it’s matte, and you would have to try to make it look “muddy” on you! Brush: link // bronzer: link

BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO: I purchased this for the first time in January, and I’ve been obsessing over it since! It’s safe to say I use it every day.. even when my hair is freshly washed. Before discovering this product, I wasn’t a fan of spray dry shampoo because they made my head feel gritty and like I had helmet hair (I only tried the Tresemme one, and I preferred baby powder). However, this product completely changed my view on them! I’ve been using the version for blonde hair, but I will probably try out one of their scents next.

C. WONDER FLATS: I was contemplating picking these up or not, because I’ve been in a huge shoe phase and I need to slow it down; however, when I was in store they handed out a coupon so I couldn’t say no! They are as comfortable as they are cute, and will definitely remain a favorite throughout spring. Tim is a fan of them as well, because he thought they were very “me”.

CLARISONIC MIA: It’s been a minute since I’ve used this, but my skin being in a hot mess stage led me to bust it back out.. I am happy I did. It’s one of those pricey items I wouldn’t buy myself, but I am thankful to have received it as a gift a few years back. I keep it in my shower and use it only a few times per week because I find my skin is too sensitive for daily use.. maybe I will build up my tolerance. 

LIP COMBO: I picked up this BUXOM lip gloss from Sephora as a 100 point perk, and it will probably be one of the handful of items I’ll be going back to purchase in the full size. I like the cool/tingle feeling you notice after applying, and it isn’t an annoying/overly sticky lip gloss. I’ve been pairing it with a MAC lip liner from an old collection (To the Beach, anyone?), but it’s just a typical baby pink liner that you can find from any brand. Lip liner: link // lip gloss: link

Looks like lots of pink, but hey.. it was February! What were some of your February faves?

    I love love love those hunters! What a fun bright color! I have a pair in yellow and I can't wait to wear them on rainy days this spring. Next I want to get a crazy bright color like yours. Also I love those C.Wonder loafers, they are super cute, I've been lusting over them 🙂

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.
