monthly favorites

{favorite beauty items}  

neutrogena skin enhancer – my skin gets dry in the winter and needs a break from foundation every now and then.  i like this bb cream a couple of times a week instead of foundation.

laura geller supercharged primer – i’m still loving this primer.  it makes my foundation go on smoothly.

loreal infallible pro-spray make-up extender – after i finished a bottle of my urban decay setting spray, i decided to try this one.  it does the job, and it’s about half the price too.

loreal brow stylist plumper – i haven’t used the tinted version yet.  i’m sticking with the transparent one for now.  i like it though so when i’m done with this one, i’ll switch to the tinted one.

loreal brow stylist designer – this pencil is great!  i especially like the spoolie on the end.  i use this before the plumper.

{favorite eats}

bang bang chicken – it’s spicy but so worth it.

key lime cheesecake from crush, a wine bar in Amarillo

{favorite books}

little big lies by liane moriarty – so good!!!  i didn’t guess the ending at all.  i read the last few chapters late one night because i couldn’t put it down.

yes, please by amy poehler – she’s hilarious.  period.

{favorite new music, tv shows, movies}

vikings on history channel – such a great show!  season three started this month.

fifty shades of grey – i had to put it on the list.  you can’t take it too seriously or you won’t get it.

vance joy – i found his music this past summer, but for some reason i cannot turn off his channel on pandora lately.  his music is so beautiful.

the slap – this new tv show is fascinating.  i don’t really like any of the characters, but that’s what makes it interesting.

{most memorable moments – the good and bad}

completing the fourth six weeks – ⅔ of the school year is finished!  i think i say it every year, but it has gone by SO fast!

getting through another valentine’s day alone…but with great friends!


sticking to my fitness blender 8 week program and being excited about finishing it.

meeting my parents and sister for the weekend and the important conversations that happened during that short time.


seeing a friend go through a tough situation that could honestly have happened to me a million times.  sometimes that’s all you need to be reminded of what is really important.

cooking a new recipe each week.  some have turned out better than others, but i haven’t hated anything.
