Thank you so much for your love on our kitchen renovation I shared on Monday! You all are so darn sweet! I’m so glad today is Wednesday; it’s my Friday! It has been a long week already and I’m so ready for Huebie to be home.
Today I’m sharing some of my favorite things from February and linking up with Kelli and Mia!
Favorite Beauty Product
I wear tinted moisturizer 99% of the time. And I have been a fan of Bobbi Brown’s oil free tinted moisturizer for a long time. It provides good coverage for a tinted moisturizer and evens my skin tone out. But I’d heard a few months back about how amazing the NARS tinted moisturizer is so I thought I’d give it a try. And let me tell you ladies, it is as amazing as the claims make it out to be. I have very sensitive skin and break out easily so I’m really selective about what I put on my skin. This moisturizer goes on really light and provides amazing coverage. It makes my skin look flawless. Give it a try if you’re in the market!
When Huebie is out of town I usually make a Crock Pot because it will last Little A and me a few days. My simple Crock Pot chicken noodle soup is one I make often and the perfect recipe for all of you still living in the snow and cold weather.
Favorite Essential Oil
I mentioned last month that I was getting White Angelica and I am so glad I ordered it! This oil smells amazing and I use it every day. It’s a blend of 7 oils including Rose, Ylang Ylang, Myrrh and Sandalwood. It’s said to clam and settle nerves, and provide a sense of protection against negative energy. I’ve definitely felt the difference when I’ve used White Angelica during stressful and nerve wracking times this past month.
I’ve been wanting to try a barre class for some time but unfortunately there aren’t any studios near us. So I found this workout and have been doing it every so often at home as a balance to all the running I’m doing. I love doing the slow movements and my legs are definitely feeling stronger. And I love the added HIIT in there too! Get my sweat on!
Question of the day: What are some of your favorite things from last month?!
Happy Wednesday love bugs!
Thank you for that Barre+HIIT workout guide – it sounds intense!! Glad to hear you like the NARS product, their stuff is just so good! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston
So happy you mentioned that recipe again, it looks delicious! I think I might pick up that tinted moisturizer next month for something more light weight. I love anything that works well for sensitive skin and have liked NARS foundation in the past.
I’ll have to try the NARS tinted moisturizer. I’m almost out of the BB Creme I’ve been using so it’d be a good time to give it a shot. Mmm your soup sounds delicious right now…especially with this cold, wet weather here. I need to get the ingredients. Thanks for linking up, Tiffany!!
Oh girl I think I need to invest in some of these oils you and Kelli are always raving about. I could probably use the one you mentioned the next few weeks as we transition into this new life. Stress and nerves abound!
Stopping by from the link up to check out your Feb. faves! Your soup looks amazing!! Thanks for sharing the link! Heading over to pin it now!! Happy Wednesday — your Friday! Hooray! 😉
Just pinned that soup, it looks so good and simple. Especially today when it’s been sleeting/snowing all day! PS- I’ve really been enjoying your cookies this week. I’ve been eating them warm along side some greek yogurt. So tasty!
YES for barre workouts! Also a fav of mine.
Here’s an oil question for you: can you ingest any brand of essential oil? I usually purchase mine through Whole Foods (because it’s easiest) and just read that those might not be safe to ingest. I only do the lemon oil in my water, and one or two drops… Thoughts? (Your posted oil got me thinking about this again. Sorry it’s a bit off topic!)
Where do you use the oil??? Glad you are liking it and always love hearing about new ones to try!
I use it on my wrists/forearms and shoulders and I think I’m going to start putting it over my heart too. I really like it!
I will have to try the soup recipe too. I love using my crock pot and I LOVE soup!! I’m really enjoying all of the recipes that you are adding. 🙂
