Hello again! Did yesterday’s daily planner help you at all? If you’ve printed it out and are using it today, I’d love to hear how it works for you! Something about putting your daily plan on paper seems to make the day go more smoothly, right?! Today, it’s a new edition of Monthly Loves, where I share things I’m loving for that month, with the aim to highlight fun and fabulous things I swear by, some things I might want to try, great deals, and under $50 finds! All perfectly appropriate for the flavor of each month!
February’s LOVES is filled with all kinds of pink goodness and a few more things that would make great Valentine’s Day gifts! Let’s dive in!
Love Letters • If you’re like me, a compliment or word of affection goes a LOOOONG way! This kit comes with 12 pages and 12 envelopes for putting a note of gratitude or a sweet sentiment into your love’s hands to read and keep as a momento. For $15, you can’t go wrong.
Candle • If you’ve never indulged in a really good quality candle before, I urge you to try! It’s definitely a ‘self care’ thing for me and I feel so pampered and like I’m indulging in a luxury every time I light one of these. They are particular great for 1) in the living room in the evening with the lights on dim for helping you relax and 2) on your nightstand in the bedroom before bed.
Twist Hem Top • I have this top in grey and it’s one of those soft and cozy tops that you want to change into as soon as you get home from work. You’ll also want to wear it all weekend and even to bed!
Truffles • This heart shaped box of truffles definitely ups the grocery store box of Valentine’s Day candy! This one is pink champagne, but they also have a dark sea salt caramel truffle in a round gift box. #yesplease!
Water Bottle • If you’re trying to increase your water intake, fill up one of these babies and take it on the go with you! I haven’t seen one of these in this gorgeous shade of light pink, but I’m smitten! A Swell water bottle keeps your water ice cold and fits easily inside your bag and car cup holder.
Tassel Earrings • Now that Jordan is nearing two (wait didn’t she just turn 1?!), I’m back to wearing fun earrings again and love how they add personality to your outfit! This pair is lightweight so they won’t kill your ears!
Lip Treatment • I discovered this amazing lip treatment when I got it in my Ipsy box a long time ago. I don’t subscribe to Ipsy anymore, but this lip stuff was one of the best discoveries I made while I was a member! I use it every.single.day (no exaggeration!) and #shameonme for not sharing it with you sooner! Sorry! It’s super soothing and moisturizing, but doesn’t later dry out your lips. The smell is divine and there’s no weird flavor it it. The tube lasts a long time and now I realized you can get it in a rose tint too! I keep a tube in my bathroom drawer and put it on after I brush my teeth in the morning and at night. But you can wear it any time and all day long! Try it and thank me later!
Wedges • I saw these espadrille wedges all over town last year, but never bit the bullet on them for myself- BUT, I also only saw them in tan and black, and maybe grey. So now that I’m seeing them in pink, I’m thinking I want to try them! (They actually come in 10 colors!) Everyone raves about them being super comfortable and easy to walk in. I’m thinking they’ll be great to wear with skirts, dresses, jeans, shorts and even joggers. Basically everything!
V-Neck Tee • I’m all about a tee, and this one by Madewell is a current fave. I have it in this color and the nautical-inspired navy and white stripe. It’s a nice lightweight material, and the V is just right (not too high or low). It’s reasonably priced too at under $20.
Pineapple Keychain • Also at under $20, is this cute little gold pineapple keychain that might just make all that taxi driving a little more pleasurable!
Bag • This is the under $50 bag I shared yesterday and I’m liking it so much I made it a FAVE! The circle metal ‘bracelet’ handle is darling, but it also comes with a removable crossbody strap! It’s a decent size (10×9) to hold the important things for running errands or a night out.
Pink UGGs • We’re going skiing for Spring Break this year and I need these pink UGGS! How cute are they?! I know they are legit for keeping your feet warm and it doesn’t hurt that they are simply adorable in that shade!
P.S. Any tips for taking a 2 year-old into the snow for the first time? I’m more than a little nervous about how she’ll do on this trip!
Have a great day friends!
