It has been so long since I posted a favourites that I don’t know if I remember how to do this. JUST KIDDING – I am still very good at getting obsessed with things. Usually February is short and would result in very limited favourites, but lucky for you I have been collecting faves over the last few months so we have lots to talk about today!
Favourite sounds: Frends Headphones Layla Rose Gold
I bought these headphones as a treat yourself before Christmas/my trip and I could not be happier with my purchase. Not only are these headphones the perfect prop for a blogger accessory (lol guilty) but they have great sound. The sleek style makes me less stressed out about how uncool big headphones might look on me and I get to hear all my favourite things even better. They were also great for tuning out noise on the plane and various other modes of transport over the last few months.
Favourite Mascara: COVERGIRL’s Plumpify Blast PRO Mascara
One of my favourite Youtubers, Ingrid, was gushing about this mascara in one of her latest videos. I was a little hesitant at first because she is a Covergirl ambassador and you know how much I love Dior mascara but I was pleasantly surprised by this! I’ve used and been impressed with CoverGirl mascara in the past (Lashblast) but this new formula/brush combination takes it to another level! It certainly won’t be replacing Dior as my #1 mascara but it is much easier on my wallet while I’m trying to save money.
Favourite brushes: Sephora Collection Flatter Yourself Contour Brush Set
These brushes were another Christmas time treat yo’self purchase and BOY OH BOY did I ever treat myself. I am thoroughly convinced that these brushes have upped my makeup game 100%. I use them every single day. I am officially a contour convert and I regret that it has taken me almost 24 years of life to realize how useful this technique is.
Favourite Tech: iPad
It is probably not a surprise that my newest addition to Apple technology made the list. I am obsessed with my iPad – mostly because I can read all my magazines and Kobo books on it. All of my workout/healthy food ebooks are uploaded onto this handy little machine and I just love it.
Favourite Concealer: Mac Select Cover-up Concealer in NW20
I’m pretty sure I posted about getting this concealer back in my life on my last favourites. Maybe? But it is so good and such a key part to my face’s wardrobe that it was worth bringing up again. This concealer covers so well – it keeps me looking awake and covers any problem areas. When I’m having good skin days, it is the only thing I put on with mascara and on bad skin days, I trust it even more.
Favourite outfit staple: New Look Blue Jacquard Strip A-line Skirt
Obviously, I shopped when I was in London. This skirt is by far my favourite purchase. I wear it whenever I need a confidence boost and I have gotten so many compliments on it. Thank you New Look – can’t wait to shop with you again.
Favourite comfort piece: New Look Grey Quilted Rib Sweatshirt
For a total 180 on the last New Look piece, this is my go to hang out/casual Friday piece that I picked up in London. It is super comfortable but still feels a little put together which helps me from feeling so grungy. BTS sneak peak – I am wearing it as I write this post!
Favourite show: The Office
I will shamefully admit that I did not appreciate The Office as much as I should have when it first came out. Sure, I’ve watched a few episodes here and there but I was never invested. All that changed when I made it my most recent Netflix binge. I didn’t love the first season but by season three I couldn’t stop watching. I am now on season 7 and couldn’t imagine life without Jim and Pam.
Favourite Chapstick: Vanilla Bean Mosturizing Lip Balm
Winter has finally arrived for real in Canada (we had -27°C weather the other day) and that means my lips are super chapped all the time. I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve never been a huge fan of Burt’s Bees. But, I was pleasantly surprised with the new Vanilla Bean flavour that I got in a package from one of my friends at Christmas. I’ve been using this obsessively to try and keep my lips cute enough for all my favourite lipsticks.
Favourite Scent: Coconut Passion VS Spray
My boss recently went on a trip to Florida and brought me back the biggest throwback to my days as a VS employee. You can take the girl out of Victoria’s Secret but you can’t take Victoria’s Secret out of the girl – am I right?! I LOVE this scent as much as I love the fashion show and I am quite pleased to have it in my life once again.
Favourite cozy: Roots Cabin Socks
“All you need is tea and warm socks” is not only the saying on my favourite mug – it is also my life motto. These Roots socks are as warm and cozy as it gets without being too overwhelming. I was super excited to find two burgundy pairs in my stocking this Christmas.
Favourite Drink: Buddha Blend Tea
This tea is so delicious! I got it in my motivational mail from one of the #tiucanada girls and I am obsessed. If you follow the blog, you obviously already know how much I love tea (specifically from David’s Tea – holla at Canadian business). This tea is made up of white tea, green tea, jasmine pearls, and white hibiscus blossoms.It smells like a beautiful garden and you can drink it just black (which is something I’ve been trying hard to incorporate lately!)
That’s all for now! What have you been loving this month?
