Beauty bloggers can do it, so why can’t I? So this is how it’s going down; after every month I’ll list my favorite things according to categories. Then you go out and try them and be equalobsessedsed with me (being obsessed with something along side others is what life is all about). So without further ado… my February favorites!
Ripped Black Jeans
People call me edgy and I honestly I have no clue where they get that from.. (in no way am I hardcore/bad a). Like I guess I wear a lot ripped black clothing but I consider my style more simple with a few exotic pieces thrown in. My go-to article of clothing are some black denim jeans I ripped and cut (okay, a little edgy). Anyway, I got these jeans for Christmas like two years ago, and they fit perfectly, like so good. But, after a few years of a jeans life they need to be revamped, it’s an unspoken rule. Right now, the big trend is cutting the hem off the bottoms of the jeans and fraying the leg, so that’s what I did. I also cut slashes in the knee. Now, you can pull out the stitching and give it like a frayed hole style, but I just wanted two slits. These are my right hand, they’re my go to.
I used to be obsessed with makeup, like spent ALL my money on the stuff. Now, I still like it and spend time and money on it, but I’m not crazy anymore. My current fav is doing an ombre lip type thingy, idk the right terminology. So I use a purple/mauve pencil (yes, I use drugstore products, they work just a good usually) and then put a light pink lipstick and whah lah, my signature lip.
Do not make fun of me. I like eating healthy and view food as fuel, not a pass time. I have been OBSESSED with kale this past month.. Seriously so versatile and packed with nutrients. You can bake it, steam it, saute it, make kale chips, and blend it into your smoothies. I like it crispy if I’m eating it with food (oven at 300 degrees, olive oil & salt, 20 minutes) but smoothies are more common in my diet. With the smoothie, I fill the blender with washed kale, put about a half cup of water in it, and blend (chewing your smoothie sucks). Then, I add a frozen banana, an inch piece of skinned ginger, and the juice of a lemon, I blend until it’s relatively smoothie. Sometimes I add black chia seeds on top to be extra. This taste like how it sounds, disgusting. But, it gives you energy and your body will love you.
BOATHOUSE FARMS MOCHA FREAKING CAPPUCCHINO. I buy the big ole 32 oz. bottle of this stuff from WalMart and it lasts for two mornings. It has no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavoring or preservatives, and has added protein and calcium which is really important to me (these are hard for me to get). This taste just like a coffee you would get from Starbs, but is so much better for you. It’s a must in my life.
Well, if this isn’t the hardest question that the Earth has ever faced.. But, I have to say that when someone hands me the aux I play Bad Things by Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello. This song has no deep passionate meaning that touches my soul, I just like the sound of it.
I watch a lot of YouTube.. like when you’re watching Netflix, I’m watching YouTube. I just find it so much more entertaining and educational than TV shows or movies. Since this is my first favorites blog, I have to give the honor to Mr. Kate. This lady is my soul sister. She is everything I am, and want to be. Her channel is mostly interior design with some lifestyle thrown it. She’s free spirited, a creative weirdo, and just wants fair human rights, YES GIRL. Can’t say enough good things about her, but her channel is so much fun so make sure you check her out!
So we have this new tee that changes colors when heat is applied and I am so impressed by it. I had a shirt that did this when I was like ten years old so I really think it’s also nostalgic to me. It’s also super comfy, so I don’t know what else you could possibly ask for.
Sayings and quotes are important, they provide inspiration and a drive to fulfill them. I tend to be attracted to lighthearted and positive ones. The deeper and darker they are make me start feeling that way and ain’t no one got time for that. Right now I’m all about “If you’re lonely, bored, or unhappy, remember you are mad young. There is so much time to meet new people and go to new places” -Ezra Koenig. I don’t know who you are Ezra, but you a homie. This quote is so true, I am only twenty years young and my life will change so much that I’m not very worried about the bad times.
So, there you have it, my fav things. Go out, be obsessed, and share your favorites with me!
