February 2014 Favorites

So, we have made it through February.  I wasn't entirely sure it was going to happen.  Here are a few of the things in my life that have helped me survive this past month.

Aquaphor -- This healing ointment has been helping my skin tremendously this month.  I have been using it mostly at night over my nighttime treatments on the parts of my face that feel particularly dry or are prone to flakies, as well as on my lips and cuticles.

L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (review) -- I really like the length and definition this mascara gives my lashes.

NYX Pore Filler (review) -- This primer makes my skin look much smoother and blur pores quite well.  It really does make a difference.

Fame by Lady Gaga -- I think the bottle is cool and that the perfume smells good.  How's THAT for a quick review?  I think this fragrance is now available at mass market retailers like drugstores and such.

My New Spectacles (pics here)-- I've been wearing these more often than my contacts since I got them, which is unusual for me because my glasses usually drive me crazy (slipping down my nose, lenses getting dirty from my lashes hitting them, and so on).

Junior Mints -- These are addictive.  I just can't leave them alone.  Nor should I be left alone with a box of them.

My semi-new wristwatch -- Story written in the form of a run-on sentence and without commas: My mom purchased this for herself last year sometime but decided it wasn't quite what she wanted so she asked me if I liked it and I said YES IT'S SO PRETTY so she decided to give it to me for Christmas and I love it so I decided to include it in my favorites list.  I neglected to include it in the group photo, so here is a pic:

According to ABC News, Detroit has been the city hardest hit by the winter weather this year.

I'm hoping by the time I write another favorites post the snow will have melted.


  1. Oh wow, Junior Mints. I haven't had those in many, many years. Lately I've been turning to peanut candies to help me deal with the winter blues, but Junior Mints also sound good. :)

    1. Any kind of candy helps the winter blues I think.

  2. Great picks! You've been tempting me with that NYX primer and you can't go wrong with Junior Mints! :)


    1. I think I need to save the Junior Mints for going to the movies rather than eating them everyday...
