Monthly Favorites: February

Jergens / Shampoo / Lipstick / Leggings / Wonder Pencil / Lip Primer

Jergens: This is a must during the winter months because it’s natural enough (color wise) to use. I switch to a deeper self tanner for the warmer months. 

Shampoo: I wanted to give this shampoo a try after I saw it was one of Allure’s Best of Beauty. For starters I love the smell, and I really did notice a difference in my curls. I’m not trying a little kit from Ulta that includes the shampoo, conditioner, and their 5 in 1 styling cream, definitely a fan! Not sure if I’ll purchase the full size or not because of the price, so for now I’m saving the products for weekend hair 😉

Lipstick: This color was my most recent back-2-Mac selection and at first I wasn’t too impressed but it has grown on me. I mean how appealing is the color “syrup”. But it provides a great natural lip color if used lightly, and you can build it for a much deeper color. 

Leggings: I was wanting some fun leggings, but I always talked myself out of purchasing any because I wasn’t too comfortable wearing them. When I saw these however they were exactly what I was looking for. I love the colors, and the panels on the back are just enough to make them fun and different. The first day I wore them I got at least 5 compliments on them. Hurry and check your store before they sell out! 

Wonder Pencil: Another recent purchase that I’ve been loving. I use this to lightly outline my top lip when I wear lip colors, to brighten (makes them look fuller) and also acts as a reverse lip liner. 

Lip Primer: I used to hate wearing lipstick…. until I found this product. It helps fill in lip lines and makes the lipstick go on much smoother. 

Vans Protein waffles: Funny to include but these have been my favorite find of this month. I’ve been eating much healthier, so I look forward to eating one of these every day. I spread a little peanut butter on it to make it even more magical. I never feel guilty eating them. I have seen them at Kroger and Publix, so I’m sure they’re available wherever you shop! 

Thank you for reading. Let me know any of your current must haves!

  • 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.
