FEBRUARY FAVORITES

/fashion favorites/


I've come to realize that a black leather jacket has become a staple in my closet (as should it be in yours as well). Although most leather jackets (with really nice material) are on the more expensive side, I say invest in at least one piece! It's just so versatile and can really dress up a very casual outfit. I usually pair mine with high-waisted jeans! 

As you can see, Zara has been my go-to shopping place now... everything there is just so cute & so me!! I couldn't help myself. I just recently bought these shoes, though I know I will get so much wear from them. 


Aaaand last favorite clothing piece is this pair of Topshop jeans. They are literally THE most comfortable jeans I own right now. They just fit and stretch in all the right places (plus, it makes my butt look big... so that's a bonus right??)! Everyone needs a good pair of blue jeans, and these have become mine as of late. 

/beauty favorites/


Moving on to beauty favorites, I was gifted this mascara, along some other makeup, for my birthday 
and I know I haven't raved about this mascara SO HERE I AM RAVING ABOUT IT. I am beyond head over heels for these. My eyelashes are pretty long without any mascara, but with these on, they seem longer!! They do not clump on my eyelashes at all, and it's really easy to take off with face wash. I have a feeling I won't be moving on to any other mascara any time soon.

I recently bought this blush about two weeks ago because I lost my Mac blush (I know... how could I, right?). Anyways, I came across this and now I'm in love with a new blush. It is such a natural color when put on, and really just gives you a natural glow. My makeup routine consists of natural makeup and this Urban Decay blush coupled with the Smashbox mascara gives me that ultimate natural look. I have to say that my two favorite beauty/makeup products of February is a power duo. 

/favorite tv show & movie/
Reign

My friend Pauline introduced me to this TV show on Netflix, and I have to say that I'm pretty surprised. I would always see commercials for this show, but I never really looked into it. Let's just say I got really hooked and I binge-watched it... over 5 days. There are 3 seasons, each with about 20 episodes. It was that good... take my word for it: you definitely need to go and check it out (that is... if you like the whole romantic drama in back in the olden days. Don't worry the show is very modernized and has such a good sound track). PSA: it is very very VERY dramatic. 

The Man in the High Castle

I heard about this show through my cousins. I didn't even know that Amazon produced tv show series either. The Man in the High Castle would have to make it on your to-see list because this series is one-of-a-kind. It takes on the perspective of (What if Germany won WWII and the US actually lost?). The plot line is so unique and I can honestly say I have never watched anything like it.

Adult World
This movie made it on to my list of favorites because of a specific character in here, Rubia, played by Armando Riesco. I just couldn't stop laughing at her remarks and her whole persona. The overall movie is very indie-feely and is very cute. It's one of those movies you see scrolling through Netflix to see what you haven't watched and you're like "Why not?" This selection turned out to be a positive outcome. 

Ashby

I say watch Ashby if you're in for a romantic drama that will give you a lot of life lessons. It's another cute indie (well, I think it's indie) movie starring my favorite, Nat Wolff, and Emma Roberts. 

/music favorites/
Audio-Technica AT-LP60 Turntable

My absolute favorite this month is my new record player! I am literally obsessed with it, and I'm so excited to start my own vinyl collection. Maybe one day, when I deem my collection to be enough, I'll do a blog post about them all. So far, I've purchased the 1975 and the new Cage the Elephant's album Tell Me I'm Pretty! The design of the turntable is very simple and modest; the sound is exquisite when coupled with a stereo system. Literally, the sound of angels in my ears. If you're on the hunt for a good record player, I definitely recommend this one.

Hippo Campus

I've been listening to Hippo Campus so much lately. They're a indie rock band that "delivers guitar-driven pop" and just really give off a spring/summer vibe. Whenever I listen to them, I'm either breaking out, dancing or playing my air guitar/drum. They never cease to put me in a good mood. I absolutely love all their songs, but Bashful Creatures is there most recent album; my favorite off of that album is Suicide Saturday!
