February Favorites

So my favorites for the month of February are going to be a little different. I only had three things related to makeup, but I did have other random favorites that I just had to share. So without further adieu, my February favorites.
1. Youtube Vlogs
Okay, this one may sound kind of weird, but Youtube Vloggers are also one of my favorites for this month, as well as every other month. Vlogs are pretty much like TV shows to me.

My favorite vlogs to watch are Gabe and Babe TV, itsJudysLife and The Nive Nulls. It's guaranteed that if I'm having a bad day, I will be sure to smile by watching any of these vlog channels.

2. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
I used to wear this a lot in college as an inner corner highlight color, but I'm assuming once I found something new to use, I pushed it aside and forgot about it. I was propelled to use it again from watching an eye tutorial on Youtube and now I can't stop.

This month I was using a lot of pink eyeshadows inspired by Valentines Day and I would use this as a base to make the pinks stand out more. Normally when I would use pink shadows I could hardly ever see it, but my NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk makes a world of a difference.

 3. Small Plastic Storage Trays
My makeup storage has been in complete havoc for the past couple of years. I use a 10 drawer cart, but I had no rhyme or rhythm to the madness. I had drawers specified for different types of products, but once you pulled out a drawer there would be no organization or separation of the products in that specific drawer.

I couldn't take it any longer and I decided to see if my dollar store had plastic containers to control the mayhem. I should have done this way sooner, but I always assumed I wouldn't be able to find them there. Well, I was wrong. They were there and for a price I couldn't pass up.

My makeup storage isn't completely finished yet, but the trays I have bought makes looking for things a heck of a lot better.

4. Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream
I was alway terrified to try this product out because I had a feeling it would not mix well with my oily skin, but it literally has been a savior for me this winter. I don't know if I always get dry patches on my skin during this time of year, but I definitely noticed my skin getting dry around my forehead and cheeks.

I decided to use this as a night cream in my dry areas after I washed my face, and it gave me great results. No breakouts and it left my dry areas feeling soft like a baby's bottom the next morning!
Product is thick and very moisturizing. LOVE!
5. Breaking Bad
I didn't expect Breaking Bad to be in my favorites, but it sneaked its way in there. I am all about reality TV, but since January I've been on a kick with watching non-reality TV series. First it was Mad Men, then it was Orange is the New Black and now it's Breaking Bad.

Everyone and their momma loved Breaking Bad. I'm not going to lie, I watched the first couple of episodes and I wasn't a fan. I felt like I just couldn't get into it. It took me watching the entire first season to realize that I may actually like the show.

The more I watch it, the more and more I like it.  Breaking Bad is definitely growing on me with each episode.
Can I just say that I think Jesse Pinkman is hot? Because he is! haha :) 
What things have you been loving this month?

Love and desserts,


  1. This was a great post!! I love the variety of things you talk about here. I have seen that Benefit moisturizer but have never tried it. I'm glad to know it works well for oily skin. My skin is usually oily too, but then I have those random days where it's crazy dry! You have a great blog. Keep up the good work. xoxo

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I tried to spice things up a little bit with some other things besides beauty! My skin is the same way. I'm sure if you ever decided to try the Benefit Total Moisture you would be pleasantly surprised! :) I appreciate your amazing feedback! I'm now following you via GFC! Thanks for visiting. :)
