And, just like that – it’s March! January was the longest year, and February was over in a blink. Time is a funny thing! There were quite a few random favorites throughout last month, so let’s jump right into 7 things I loved in February.
Oh yeah, I’m not afraid to put up a photo of me ridiculously cheesin’ over a cookie cake. 😉 Finn in the corner looking up at me like I’m nuts also cracks me up.
I turned 30!
I’m officially in a new decade of life, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Quite the opposite actually! Ryan spoiled me silly with the cutest display, treats and gifts, and my parents were able to drive up for the afternoon to celebrate. It was the perfect low-key day and a great way to set the tone for this new chapter. Thanks for all the love on Instagram!
This drugstore highlighter is perfect for those of us that prefer something subtle.
I can’t get enough of John Mayer lately. Have you heard his new song? SO good. My brother and I are going to see him August, which will be another check on my concert bucket list.
I’ve gotten a few questions about my photos and editing lately. It’s all thanks to the Light and Airy Photog Mobile Presets! I randomly came across these girls on Instagram and simply fell in love with their presets. Each one was exactly what I always was after when trying to edit (for hours) on my own. Now it’s as simple as applying a preset in the free iPhone Lightroom app! I typically use the Brighter Whites preset and turn down the color temperature between -5 to -8 (I like my photos to have a slightly cooler look). It’s so easy, and I’m thrilled with the look of my pictures – both for the blog and everyday! I can’t even remember the last time I picked up my fancy DSLR. There seems to usually be a promo code available for a few bucks off, but regardless these presets are worth every penny!
If you’re not watching Victoria on PBS Masterpiece then you’re missing out. I’ve watched the show since the first season, and this season was probably the best yet. So much history laced with drama, love and intrigue. I can’t get enough and am already going through withdrawals since last night’s finale.
A couple other notable mentions are the Ted Bundy docuseries on Netflix – seriously, how could one man be so evil? Highly recommend if you’re into all the true crime stuff. We also were sucked into the third season of True Detective, but I admittedly found the finale to fall flat. If you’ve watched it, let’s discuss.
