“Create the content you want to see on the Internet”

I read that quote while browsing Twitter at the beginning of the month, and it perfectly sums up my general feeling towards blogging and social media at the moment. Do things seem monotonous to you? Sometimes when I'm scrolling through the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, I feel like I'm seeing the same content over and over again. Not that I'm any more creative, because I struggle in this area too! But I do wish for a little more variety. 

Anyway, I wrote that quote on a sticky note and it's hanging off the top of my computer now. Maybe it will spark something special one of these days.

The February Edit:

I picked up this rose water facial toner from Trader Joe's and I've been using it everyday. If you love the smell of roses, you'll want to try this. I believe it was under $5 and great for a midday skin refresh.

This Vasanti Brighten Up! exfoliating cleanser is amazing! I got a smaller size last year in my Fab Fit Fun box and enjoyed it so much that I bought the regular size from Amazon. I use it twice a week in place of my regular cleanser and it's great for dull Winter skin. I concentrate it on my chin, the home of cystic acne. I *may* even prefer it over my beloved ExfoliKate! Although that product is more of a treatment whereas this is a cleanser.

Things I loved in February:
Nate and I took his parents to SuperCross during a storm and the torrential downpour made for some laughs.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started another season. I'm a Bravo t.v. junkie (Top Chef and Below Deck have been entertaining as well). I mostly love seeing what all the ladies are wearing.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's performance of "Shallow" at the Oscars.

Celebrating Katie's mom's milestone birthday over the weekend. I won't give the number away though. I loved catching up with her family, especially her older sister. Friends are the family you choose.

Coincidentally, I'm going to include this brilliantly written blog post that I came across just last night before publishing this. It's all about the author's thoughts on the current state of bloggers and influencers, and it is spot on.

Things I didn't love in February: 
Unexpected unforeseeable events like concussions at work and torrential downpours at sporting events.

The realization that after booking a weekend away in Palm Springs, I need to go bathing suit shopping STAT.

How was your month? Linking up with On The Daily Express and Straight A Style. 


  1. I got this toner a few weeks ago and yes when I look on LTK everyone looks the same. Really trying trying to find new topics to blog on, we'll see how that goes. Off to read this article.


    1. I know you love Trader Joe’s :) I avoid my store because it’s always very crowded and parking is a mess but this toner is great!

      The article I linked is SO good! I hope you read it because I think you’d appreciate a lot of it.

  2. I completely understand what you mean, I myself hate routine when it comes to my blog and always try to write different things and I wish other bloggers would do it too because I think that'd make it interesting for readers as well. Good luck with bathing suit shopping, doing it last minute is always difficult, I always do it so yeah haha

    1. Thank you Marta! I’ll have to check out your blog!

      The bathing suit struggle is very real lol, but I’ll report back if I find anything really flattering!

  3. Hope Nate is continuing to recover well! And yeah...as much as the rain makes for some entertaining racing I do NOT want to sit out there in it! You're a trooper for surviving that one!

    1. He’s doing well now, thank you for thinking of him Gina! The older you get, the harder it is to recover. And the rain at supercross was actually kind of fun, I looked like a drowned rat but we enjoyed it nonetheless!

  4. So I only get to watch Bravo when I am traveling so I am DELIGHTED You informed me about OC. I really, really love that version, such an OG!

    The Adored Life

    1. OC is probably my favorite, but Beverly Hills and New York City are a tie for second!

  5. It sounds like we could watch tv together all day long! I love Bravo and RHONJ, OC, and BH! Below Deck is one of my favs too!

    1. Haha yes, we are bravo queens! Definitely a guilty pleasure but I look forward to these shows so much! It’s a fun escape :)
