Even though it isn't the last Sunday of February, I couldn't wait to share with you the things I've been enjoying recently. Likewise, it has been forever since I've done a Favorites post, so I put together a few things I've been loving recently to share with you.
Recently, I ran out of eos lip balm and ran to pick up another, and this time I purchased the Blackberry Nectar. The reason it has stripes is because it is part of the Visibly Soft collection, and I noticed that the balm goes on thicker when applied, which I enjoyed a lot more than the slightly thin coverage on the other lip balms. Also, I love blackberries, and right now they are not in season, so it gives me a hint of the summer fruit that I love.
Like the eos, I recently ran out of my favorite body wash from Bath & Body Works, and this time I wanted to try something a little more natural. At Target, I picked up this Shea Moisture Olive and Green Tea Body Wash. I was unsure of the difference it would make, but I my skin felt softer after just a week. And through the winter months, my skin been less dry than usual, which prevents me from lathering 3 coats of lotion every day. I am one of those people who hates the feeling of dry skin, and if you have irritability like me in the winter, than this is perfect for you. Although, the main ingredient in this is coconut, so if you have allergies this might not be the best choice.
A few weeks ago I had a family member visiting London, and of course I had to ask for them to bring me back some chocolate. I love Cadbury, and my favorite sweets they make are the miniature eggs during Easter (anyone else love these?) Anyways, they picked me up a box of Heroes which is basically a bunch of their kinds of chocolates in little miniature versions. For me, this was very exciting, and I absolutely love every chocolate that came with it. If you live somewhere where you have regular access to these, it is probably not as thrilling, but I totally recommend trying them.
Someone gave me the coloring book, Secret Garden, over Christmas, and since then I've been coloring more than I ever thought I would. If you haven't colored since you were little and don't think it is your thing, trust me, it is. I find coloring a little bit every night is extremely relaxing, and actually helps me fall asleep faster. Therefore, if you are trying to get away from the daily stress of life, this is a great way to put everything else aside, and just focus on coloring in between the lines.
First and foremost, who doesn't love a yummy chocolate covered pretzel? It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Well, picture that yummy goodness and add in peanuts, almonds, salt and crumbled crumbled chocolate cookies. That is what you're biting into when you eat this cowboy bark. Basically, it is the perfect snack to meet your sweet cravings. Enough said.
I hope you enjoyed my February favorites! I find it funny how 2 out of the 5 were chocolate. Don't forget to let me know in the comments what you have been enjoying this month, and if you have anything in common with mine. Enjoy your week!
