February Favorites!

February is racing by and it will be March before you know it. It's bitterly cold here today and while I enjoy some parts of winter (cozy nights by the fireplace),  I do look forward to spring and a little more warmth in the air.

I picked out a few favorite things for the month of February.

First of all, I cleared off the mantel over the fireplace and started tweaking it a bit.

I was fiddling around with the editing option on Picmonkey for this photo:)

It feels good to see a little green on the mantel!  I also found a few Easter banners on that I've shown below. I may try to duplicate one of these.

Etsy Sources:

I bought myself a lipstick for my birthday and it is now a favorite. It is Mac lipstick in Russian Red. Mac makes the best lipsticks that I have ever tried.

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and kind of thought, "What is going on here?!" I was having one of those days (or weeks) mainly because I had been putting off having those wonderful "grays" in my hair covered up.  Why do these things cost so much?  I finally went and had it done, put on lipstick, tried on some scarves, and felt like a human being again. Do you ever put those semi-necessary things off?

My husband bought me perfume for my birthday. I had received a sample of this fragrance recently and just loved it.

I usually do the Juicy Couture fragrances, but decided to get this one instead. I really like it!

I've loved reading The Hunger Games Series.

I know they've been out for awhile now. I had actually read the first book a few years ago, but just recently read the other two after seeing the movies. I've curled up in my chair and read all about Katniss and Peeta and have loved every single page.

Finally, I've won several contests this past year. I have no idea how or why! I think it is a God thing:)  Anyway, I thought my winning days must be over, but found out I won a gift card to Nickel and Suede.  You may recognize Kilee who runs this company from her blog, "One Little Momma". Needless to say, I was thrilled! Isn't she the cutest little thing you've ever seen? The earrings were beautiful and made wonderful gifts:) P.S. If you are looking for a gift, she sent them out in cute gift boxes, too. I would highly recommend purchasing something from her.

I hope your February has been wonderful! Keep warm! Love and blessings! - Kathy
