I’m back! We had a great time on vacation last week. I’m already missing the Florida sun and warmer weather!
When putting together this monthly loves post, I realized that I didn’t have a wide-variety of overall lifestyle favorites last month. I did, however, do a ridiculous amount of shopping before vacation and came away with a few gems that I’m going to love now and well into the future. So I’m switching up this month’s format to share my 6 favorite purchases in February!
6 Favorite Purchases in February
+ Mellow World Charlie Triple Compartment Backpack. I’ve been on the hunt for a while now for a backpack that I can use as a purse, and this one checked all the boxes! The slim profile is great for everyday wear, and all the compartments can carry more than I would ever need. Also love the security pocket on the back. It does take some getting used to opening/closing the compartments since the straps are attached over everything, but the straps easily push out of the way so it’s a smooth learning-curve. Plus that’s also an extra built-in security feature that I’m always a fan of!
+ Time and Tru Espadrille Ankle Strap Sandal. HOW ARE THESE LESS THAN $15?! I don’t know what it is, but I’m finding myself checking Wal-Mart first these days for cute, affordable shoes/sandals. The memory foam makes them extra comfortable, and the style is a nice change from sandals. I went with the nude color to be safe, but I just might even go back for the red. These were a staple while on vacation last week, and I can’t wait to wear them around home once the weather warms up (and the snow melts!).
+ Classic square polarized sunglasses. Finally, a pair of non-round-shaped sunnies that actually flatter my face! These are fantastic quality at a great price point. Highly recommend.
+ Hair scarf scrunchies. Guess I’m all about the hair accessories lately! Again, just like the clips, these are a fun way to dress up a simple ponytail or braid. I like that these are a 2-in-1 option, so that I can wear the scrunchie and scarf together, or separately depending on my mood or what I’m wearing them for.
+ NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake. Lipstick is taking a backseat lately in favor of pigmented glosses. NYX butter glosses already are a staple in my makeup collection, but I can’t believe I didn’t have this shade before now. It’s a great mauve/nude/pink, almost a your-lips-but-better shade. I like it both on it’s own or paired with a pink-ish lip liner.
