February Favorites

I’m going to go ahead and blame my absence these last few days on Kevin Spacey. Typically, I post my monthly favorites on the last day of the month, or the first day of the new month…but I’ve been slacking this weekend because, well, Kevin Spacey. And that damned dress (if you don’t know what I’m referring to, just click here).

I’m back and at it, so here are my favorites from the month of February.

  1. Lucettegrace2015-02-21 11.10.14 2015-02-14 10.22.54

I was going to make my first favorite the Valentine’s macarons I got from here, but then I realized I should just make the entire business my first favorite (and to be honest, it’s probably going to be my favorite for a while). It’s located in downtown Raleigh, and if you live in Raleigh, or even in the triangle, you should definitely check this place out.

  1. U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath2015-02-14 11.31.43

This was the bubble bath I received in my February Pop Sugar box. I recently ran out of my bubble bars from Lush, and this was much needed for my relaxation baths at night and came at just the right time. I also think it was the perfect scent for Valentine’s Day.

  1. Madewell Flea Market Flaresflares6

I am so glad that flares are back in style again. I’ve always loved a really wide leg pant, because I’m 5’4” and pants like this with heels underneath makes me look so much taller than I really am. And sometimes it’s fun to walk around all day acting like I’m naturally 5’7”.

  1. Bauble Bar Arrow Necklace2015-03-01 19.13.29

For obvious reasons, I love arrows. And this necklace, also from February’s Pop Sugar box, is one of my favorite necklaces! For the longest time, I’ve been trying to find the perfect tiny little gold arrow necklace, and I’ve never been set on buying one when I see it, because I think there might be a better one out there. But this one just came to me, so of course I love it. Pop Sugar made my decision for me.

  1. Skinny Girl Nutrition Bars2015-02-11 14.48.52

I recently tried these, because I found them while at Marshall’s when I wanted a snack, and they were delicious. I’ve purchased more boxes since then from Target, and I love throwing these in my purse as a quick snack in the middle of the day when I need a pick me up.

  1. Vineyard Vines Down Jacketsnowinsta2

I’ve had this jacket for some time now, and it never lets me down in the cold weather. With the frequent snow we’ve had this month, this jacket has become by blanket while outside. Also, I love that it’s navy, because it matches everything and lightens up my sometimes all black outfits during the winter.

  1. Sephora Fragrance Sample Bag2015-03-01 19.14.52

I received this with one of my Sephora orders, and am so happy to try all of these scents. Thanks to this little pouch of scents to test, I have an idea of some new spring scents to try out in T minus 19 days! Unfortunately, this deal is no longer available, but they do sell fragrance sets that come with a voucher for one full sized bottle of the sample vials you test out.

  1. Sugarfina Bento Box2015-02-18 16.37.55IMG_1229-1

If you know me well, you know I love sweets. I ordered these and just so happened to receive them on a(n) snow ice day in the middle of the month. The packaging is absolutely adorable, it comes with a handwritten card, and all the candy tastes delicious. Plus, it feels like you’re really snacking on elevated candy (because you are!).

All opinions in my favorites posts are my own and I am not asked to make these posts by any brand or company listed in my favorites each month. I am also not compensated or sent any of these items for free, and if I were, I would most definitely let my readers know!

Happy March!


February Favorites

Since February is the shortest month of the year, I decided that my favorites list could stand to be a tad shorter as well.  So without further rambling on my part, here were my favorite things this month!

1.  Teavana Earl Grey Tea

Since it snowed around these parts twice this month, I’ve been really into my hot beverages more so than usual.  I love drinking this tea as it is, or with some vanilla syrup and skim milk added to it.  It’s so delicious, and smells amazing too!  If you’re interested, here is the link where you can purchase some for yourself!

2.  Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask

2014-03-03 00.13.56

This stuff came in my January Pop Sugar Must Have box, and I really like it!  I have been using it at night before bed.  It’s fun because you can feel it tingling on your face as it oxidizes.

3.  Cookie Dough Oreos

Honestly, these things just speak for themselves.  Nom.  If you haven’t tried them, find them.  And try them.  And then become addicted as soon as they all disappear and you can’t find them anywhere anymore.

4.  Disney’s Frozen, more specifically the snowman character Olaf


If you haven’t yet seen this movie, stop whatever it is you’re doing right now (like reading this post) and go see it.  And no, I’m not saying this because of the “Let It Go” song that has gone viral, and plays on the radio, and is sung on the Oscars.  (It is a great song though!)  It’s just a great movie.  I love, love, love the snowman!!! “All good things, all good things!”  And yes, he is my screen saver on my computer currently.  It’s. Just. That. Good.

5.  EOS Lip Balm in Pomegranate Raspberry

2014-03-03 00.14.54

I am just addicted to all of the EOS brand lip balms, but I have really liked this one for this month.  I think it’s because it’s kind of a wintery flavor, and it actually felt like winter in the month of February!

6.  Be Enchanted shower gel from Bath & Body Works

2014-03-03 09.54.27So I do this thing where I can never use an entire bottle of body wash without getting tired of the smell before it runs out.  So I have a few, and I keep two different scents in my shower at the same time.  I know…it’s weird.  Anyways, I had this scent for a while and it was hiding under my sink…and then I happened upon it when I was cleaning a couple of weeks ago, and stuck it back in the shower.   And now that I have, I’m glad I did.  I would describe it as one of those icy and chilled fruity scents, with an undertone of sandelwood.  It’s definitely been a rediscovered favorite of mine this month.  (Also, I think I have a thing for pomegranate this month, because pomegranate is definitely a main scent in this shower gel)  And if Elsa from Frozen used a shower gel, this would be the one I think she’d use.

7.  C9 by Champion Women’s Advanced Cold Weather Run Tights

2014-03-03 00.16.42

I feel like it’s always colder in January and February in Raleigh than it is in the final months of the year.  I really love these athletic leggings from Target because they are fleece lined, so they are very warm on those cold winter mornings!  They also zip at the bottom and kind of seal themselves around your ankles, so they keep the air from going up your pants, because no one likes that.  And they also have one of those hidden zipper pockets on the back wasteband.  And even better, they are on sale online!  Here’s the link.

There you have it!  My favorites for this month!  Thanks for reading,

Bows and Arrows,
