FEBRUARY FAVORITES

It’s My FAVORITES TIME! 

And just like that …. we are a week into March! Can anyone else agree that even though February is the shortest month it’s not definitely not my favorite.  The weather is typically icky and we are all over wearing sweaters and ready for all the white sundresses and sandals am I right?! So today, as we head into the first weekend of March I am excited to bring you a few of my favorites! 

Now on to the good stuff. I’m sure most of you who have been following me for a while already know, BUT if you’ve never read one of these posts, let me explain.  I like to take an inventory of my favorite things I have stumbled upon each month and share them with you all! It will be open to anything and all things – no exceptions!

If you end up taking my advice (which come on girl, why wouldn’t you?!) and purchase or use any of the items below – TAG ME in them! I want to see you out there being the BadAss Babes that you all are!


1.Bala Bangles

Have you ever wanted a little more out of your walks or wanted a little extra challenge during your last yoga session during that warrior pose? These are not your typical sand bag ankle weights that get soggy and start to stink after a while. These are super stylish and pretty comfortable silicone weights! You would be so surprised how by just adding one 1lb to each arm or leg or both can really make a difference in the difficulty of the movement.  I love taking my dog Lulu on long walks and I bought these because I typically walk her three to four times a day.  When I saw these I thought well why not add a little extra something to my walks?  I have yet to bring them to pilates or yoga because I haven’t been in a few weeks but I will most certainly be using them when I do! AND of COURSE I just had to get the glitter ones because I am extra 🙂

2. The Original Makeup Eraser

Okay these things are like the most amazing and magical things I have ever purchased.  These makeup towels are so incredibly soft and they really do work with just water!   I was so skeptical to buy one because nobody wants to pay $20 for a pink wash cloth.  But GIRL let me tell you, YOU NEED one of these in your life!  Just do it and you will thank me later.  Not only do they take literally all your makeup off, but it has also helped keep my face cleaner and I have had less breakouts because I use this everyday.   One side is for makeup removal and the other is for exfoliation and I am a cult follower now.  So much so that I have repurchased them 3 times because I wanted multiple for the whole week and one for travel so I don’t have to take a pack of makeup wipes.    These have 100% replaced my disposable Neutrogena makeup wipes and I am never going back.   I used to clean the makeup off my face with a wipe, shower, then still find makeup left on my towel after drying my face.    Now I clean the makeup off and don’t even need to shower if I don’t want to.  I have tested if it really gets it all off because I used a clean wipe afterwards and there is literally nothing on the wipe after using the makeup eraser.  I cannot recommend these more! I love them!

3. Restore Perfecting Spray

I was influenced by  TIBAL aka (things I bought and liked) to purchase this hair product.  I have always been pleased with all Living Proof Hair Care products so I wasn’t too concerned if it was good or not because they are always good.  This is a spray leave in conditioner that detangles and is also a heat and UV protectant as well.  I spray into my wet tangled hair and comb out and voila soft silky smooth hair! Will def be repurchasing when I run out.

4.Fancy Feet Anti- Friction Barrier

Ever since moving to Texas I really don’t wear socks that often unless Im working out. I know that sounds gross but its more comfortable for me than having muggy feet in sweaty socks.  I also like to wear not so practical shoes sometimes, because I am always in gym shoes so any chance I get to wear heels or something cute I take it!  I recently just discovered this stuff that prevents your feet from rubbing raw and getting blisters and I cannot tell you how badly I wish I would have known about this stuff sooner. I could have prevented a lot of very painful blisters and bloody shoes if I did.   The only thing I noticed was that I have to reapply frequently but its small and easy to keep in your purse so that’s a plus.  Now I can walk pretty much blister free in even the most ouchy shoes.

5. Fake Bake 

Whenever this time of year comes.… and spring is just around the corner, and we are all feeling over the jeans and sweaters….. I am always reminded of the magical powers a good fake tan has.  In my opinion it is one of the quickest and easiest confidence boosters out there.  I pulled out my trusty Bondi Sands this week ( I apply a few of my fav products, Tanning Milk, Tanning Mousse, or Dry Oil depending on the day of my tan) and I am feeling instantly much better about myself with a nice dark glow!  I prefer the darker the better but if you want a more subtle look use the Tanning Milk lotion!  I have been using this stuff for years and in my opinion is the best out there. Now the real question is when with I ever learn to keep reapplying year round!?

Now that I have shared a few of my favorites, I’d love to hear some of yours!  Anything you have been especially loving this month? 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! 

Until next month,

Shayla
