February Favorites!

Goodness, this month went by fast didn't it?!  I've been so busy with moving and getting myself settled in that I hardly even remembered this month!  But my favorites are boring because I've been lazy, mostly because I had a lot of late nights trying to unpack and settle in that the last thing I wanted to do in the morning was makeup. I was lucky I was awake!  But here they are anyway, plus some other random favorites from this short month of February!

Swatches: Disney by Sephora's Jasmine Storylook Palette Vol. 2

Hands down my favorite Disney movie is Aladdin.  The only close competition is Hercules but Aladdin pretty much runs away with it.  Therefore, by association, Jasmine is far and away my favorite Disney princess.  She's strong and stands up for what she believes in.  Plus, having a tiger for a pet is pretty badass.  Then again, Abu was pretty badass too, but that's another story.

Needless to say that when I got the e-mail saying that VIB's got early access to purchasing this palette (thank you makeup addiction!), I was excited to be One Jump Ahead (see what I did there?!) of everyone else and snatch this baby up!!  So without further adieu, I bring you Jasmine Storylook Palette Vol. 2:  The Swatches!

February Randoms!

Whew!  February has been one CRAZY month.  I moved out of my parent's house (adulthood!) and have been pretty consumed by unpacking and getting used to my life with just me and my kitten.  The first week was admittedly a little rough but it's getting much better now that I'm more settled in and into a better routine.  Macaroni is adjusting, too.  She's claimed her spots and is a great companion.  She follows me all over the house and wakes me up at ungodly hours of the morning to say hello.  Once I get things all set-up I'll post some pictures!

This past Sunday we finally were able to live out the birthday gift I gave my Mom in November (which was equally as much of a gift for me!) in seeing Mumford and Sons.  They are hands down my absolute favorite band lately and I honestly could not have asked for a better night.  They put on the most amazing show that cannot even be described in words.  I've been watching videos on YouTube back every single day and reliving the experience.  It was the most crazy energy at a show I have ever had.  There were probably 7,000 people in the venue but it felt like 100.  The vibe was crazy and I don't think I've ever clapped so much in my life.  This moment after Roll Away Your Stone gives me chills every single time I watch it.  The look between them and just how awesomely happy they look.  Chills!  If you like them, even a little, and have the chance to go see them, GO.  Do not even hesitate.  I think they're supposed to do a tour again over here.  I know they're doing Bonaroo but I am not even going to pretend that I can be a festival person.  I hate camping so it won't work.  Hopefully they're back on the east coast SOON!!!


Valentine's Day also came and went!  I had a wonderful night with my boyfriend, who sent me beautiful roses and a teddy bear at work and got me a hand-made Ricardio (from Adventure Time) from his comic shop.  FANTASTIC!  He's going to rip out my heart and make out with it!  And as my gift to my co-workers, I made the most delicious cookies ever:  Strawberry Chocolate Chip cookies, following this recipe.  I couldn't stop eating them!!




I also got my Birchbox and ipsy bag!  I kept trying to do a whole big unboxing but ugh, Blogger is not my friend today.  I'll do the whole big unboxing in March.  I also will definitely be starting to do monthly favorites.  I was all set to do January favorites but this month got WAY too away from me so I'll just hold off; they haven't changed too much anyway! 

Until next time!
