Favorite Things - February

First off I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Emily from over at Beauty and the Greek!!!

Today Emily along with Kylie from over at Lip Gloss & Lunges are hosting the Favorite Things link up.
I am going to share with you a handful of products that I have been using and am loving!
Every month I look forward reading what everyone else is liking. It is kind of like doing online shopping but a little better because you know that if someone is talking about it then you know it is worth checking out.

Beauty and the Greek

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo & Conditioner
We finally ran out of our huge bottles of shampoo and conditioner that we bought months ago from Sam's Club and this winter my hair has been extremely dry so I wanted to try something different. At the same time I had been seeing commercials for Garnier's new line of hair products to help moisturize so I decided to give it a try. I have only been using it for two weeks now but my hair is feeling so much better!

Not Your Mother's She's A Tease hairspray & Beat The Heat heat spray
At the same time I was buying the shampoo & conditioner a couple weeks ago I also decided to try something new for hairspray and a heat protectant. My Kenra that I have been using for months ran out a week prior and I kept putting off getting more because it involved going into the hair stylists and every time I thought about it they were either closed or it was very convenient for me to get there. 
I am really liking the heat spray and the hairspray really lasts for most of the day for my curls.
Plus they were more reasonable than buying one bottle of the Kenra hairspray. 

B&BW Aromatherapy Stress Relief  bath soak in Eucalyptus Spearmint
My MIL, Teresa, gave me this in my Christmas gift this year and I have been loving it.
I love the aromatherapy line but had never gotten this scent before and I smells so good when I take a really hot bath. 

Autumn gave me this along with a whole box full of makeup that I have been picking through and trying new products out of since Thanksgiving and this is one that I have been finding myself using on almost a daily basis. It is a little darker so I am thinking about getting the next shade lighter for the rest of the winter. I love using BB creams because they just leave an even tone all over my face before putting on my powder foundation. This one is very light and when all my makeup is on it doesn't feel like I have a mask of makeup on, which is always good.

Southern Grove Almonds.
I couldn't find a link for these but I found them at Aldi and I have really enjoyed snacking on them.
Since I have been trying to snack less and eat healthier these have been perfect to have at home and by my desk. Aldi also carries other types too along with a trail mix that I haven't tried yet. At less than $3 a bag they are reasonable too.

Lia Sophia Florid bracelet.
This piece has been discontinued but if you really want it you could probably check eBay or contact a consultant and they might be able to get it for you. 

I have had the hardest time finishing this book, and I still haven't but I am finally over half way through it and I am really loving the story. I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan so I am always anxiously waiting for the next book to be out.

Anthony bought me this last week and I have been using it All. The. Time. 

Make sure you all head over to Emily's and tell her "Happy Birthday!!!"

I am not compensated from any of these companies (although that would be great lol) and all the above opinions are solely my own.


  1. That mason jar tumbler is so cute!

  2. That's the same shampoo/conditioner I have been using! I swear it is working just as well (if not better) than the expensive Tigi Bedhead brand I ran out of before buying this. I've already repurchased once!
    And B&BW Eucalyptus Spearmint is my ALL TIME favorite smell - I have like 10 of the 3-wick candles stockpiled so I am never without :))

  3. I love the mason jar tumblers! Being in Charleston, it's a great item to have! Stopping by from Favorite Things!

  4. I looooove that Lia Sophia bracelet! So cute! I've never tried a "stress relief" bath soak and that just sounds so refreshing and relaxing! I might have to look for that! That is really nice of Anthony to get you that tumbler! It's right up your alley! Too cute! :)

  5. First of all that Happy Birthday to Emily is so cute! I'm sure she will really appreciate that! I am an almond addict! $3 a bag is cheap! Have you ever tried the wasabi flavor almonds?! Omg I could eat a whole jar! I love that mason jar tumbler! I see them at Wal-Mart every time I go but just haven't bit the bullet in buying one! Now you're making me want one! :) Thanks for sharing your favorite things with us!

  6. I've been wanting to try BB cream, but I never know what brand is the best. I'll have to try this kind! I'm always worried I'm not going to match it to the color of my skin, though.

    Also, that bracelet is so pretty!

  7. That mason jar tumbler is adorable! I am always drinking water or tea, and having a cute container is always better than carrying around an old plastic cup or dinged up water bottle. Am I right? I enjoyed this post :)

  8. Oh my word, you are seriously too sweet for the "Happy birthday" message. Thank you SO much!

    I'm loving your favorite things this month. The Not Your Mother's line is AWESOME. I feel like it's salon quality, but much cheaper. I'm also loving that mason tumbler! Makes me want some sweet tea and a warm day!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us, and thanks again for the birthday shout out!


  9. Not Your Mother's is my FAVORITE! Have you tried their dry shampoo? It's like $5 and the best dry shampoo I've ever used!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Feel free to leave me a comment and I will get back to you. Hope you have a great day!
