My February Obsessions


I know, I know, it’s March and I’m writing a February post – whoops! Life happens, okay?

February’s a short month – we even got an extra day with this one – but it’s always been the month that flies right by!

As much as I love the cool, crisp air February brings (and by ‘cool’ and ‘crisp’ I mean ‘frigid’ and ‘arctic’), I’m ready to start moving into the warmer months. I can’t wait to put away my winter jacket parka for good!

There haven’t been too many things that I can say I’m obsessed with this month, but there are five things that have absolutely topped my February obsessions.


ipsy February Glam Bag


Knock knock!

Who’s there?

My ipsy February glam bag!

I was more than surprised yesterday afternoon to see it in the mail a few days before it usually arrived.

Let’s take a peek inside, shall we? 


My January Obsessions


I’m a fairly obsessive person.

I can admit that and feel no shame whatsoever.

It’s not out of control, or anything, but if I like something enough you’re bound to hear about it at one point.

As it turns out, I find that there are new things I become obsessed with on a regular basis – hair styles, skin care products, scents.. basically anything. It’s the last day of January, and since we’re in a new year, I thought I’d start a new series of posts – My Monthly Obsessions.

Here are my January obsessions.


Brown Sugar Coconut Oil Lip Scrub


I love coconut oil.

I also love DIY projects and skincare.

So, how thrilled am I to tell you all about a DIY skincare product that’s super easy to make? Extremely.

We all know that coconut oil is “in” these days; a previous post I wrote highlighted a few different ways you can use coconut oil in your everyday cooking and beauty routines.

Its health benefits are endless, and it’s one of the most versatile all natural products out there. So naturally, I made a brown sugar coconut oil lip scrub.

In my January ipsy Glam Bag I received a lip scrub that I wasn’t super keen on, and I mentioned that I preferred my own. I decided to share my recipe with you all, because a) it’s super easy to make, b) only needs 3 ingredients, and c) who doesn’t love a good lip scrub?


ipsy January Glam Bag


It’s that time of the month again.

No, I’m not talking about THAT time of the month – ipsy’s January Glam Bag has arrived!

The last two bags I’ve received I really enjoyed (you can read about those here and here).

To be completely honest, I’m not thrilled with everything in this month’s bag. You win some, you lose some I suppose.

I’m utterly in love with the bag that it came in – those glasses! It’s very Warhol.


ipsy December Glam Bag


It’s finally here!I’ve been getting emails telling me that my glam bag had shipped, and finally, Tuesday was the day that I checked the mail and it sparkled its pretty little pink package right at me.This is the second bag I’ve received from ipsy (you can read about the November bag here), and I’m happy to report that I’m still pretty impressed by what was sent to me.Check it out.  Swissco // Precision Beauty TweezersI like to keep up my brows every day after I shower and before I apply my…
