Hey guys and gals! Happy February…It’s no secret I hate January, and frankly, I’m glad it’s over. Especially since we ended it with a house-wide epidemic of a vicious stomach bug, and I got the added bonus of a sinus infection and bronchitis that’s flared up my long-dormant asthma…oh, and my kids woke up with pink eye today, but that’s a whole other story that involved me crying in my bathroom before work…sigh…
At any rate, we are out of January and I always feel revitalized with the change into February. It’s like I can already feel spring on the horizon!
I’ve had some current accessory favorites keeping me going and putting some sparkle into my northern Michigan gray and dreary winter days…
Obviously my customizable jewelry from KEEP Collective is a staple. I know you’re not surprised to see it mentioned here, but hey, I love it! My rose gold options and my shiny metals are giving me life and hope for brighter days soon! Plus I love that I can mix and match with so many options every day! Shown here are my mini pendant with a couple of current favorite charms, my Timekey on my rose gold leather keeper, and my mesh keepers with two of my favorite stones of the moment, the pink quartz and the jasper.
I’m also still loving this scarf from my first StitchFix delivery (mentioned here). Adds a fun pop of color to my monochrome outfits (and outlook ha!) as of late! It’s super soft and warm and perfect for the weather right now. We’re expecting a BIG winter storm tonight…Yikes! So much for an early spring 😉
I’m also obsessed with this roller ball from Victoria’s Secret in their Heavenly scent. It was a total impulse buy at the last minute to get me a cash rewards card. You know, spend more just so you can get a coupon…makes total sense, right?! 😉 But I’ve actually been wearing nonstop! It’s fresh and sweet, but not overly so…and I love the ease and convenience of roller ball applicators.
I couldn’t write this post without mentioning my new phone case! I actually found it on eBay and y’all know I’m snow white-obsessed! Lark is pretty smitten with it too!
And lastly, my new glasses, courtesy of firmoo.com! I absolutely love Firmoo! Their eyewear is affordable and there are TONS of frames to pick from. My favorite sunglasses are also from Firmoo! I like interesting, but not crazy wild frames, and these tortoise cat-eye frames are so perfect. I also love the added detail of the white pinstripe on the edge of the frames. My kids love them too and like to rip them off my face, but luckily they’re durable, and with the price, they’re easy to replace should something happen to them.
These glasses, with my prescription, come in at less than $50. I’ve always struggled with purchasing glasses because the brand name lenses are beyond expensive and never in my budget. With a service like Firmoo, I can have multiple pairs! I also love that the anti-scratch and UV coatings are an option, as well as tinted lenses, etc for a VERY nominal fee.
And because Firmoo is so awesome, I’m giving a pair away to one of my readers! Leave a comment below telling me your favorite accessory of the moment to be entered to win!
