February Favorites


1. Cauliflower Pizza Crust (via

I go through these phases of cutting out bread from my diet (especially around beach season!) and I'm currently on a somewhat modified Whole 30 as we speak.  So I've loved finding new recipes that are yummy and healthy!  
I found this pizza crust recipe on Pinterest, and made it last week.  It was seriously good, even John and kids approved!  We are making it again tonight!  (I topped mine with pesto, basil, and chicken!)

2. Omelets

I've been eating some variation of an omelet every day for breakfast, 
and this is my current favorite combo.  
Two eggs, a dash of almond milk, baby spinach, a dash of garlic salad dressing (my fave), turkey bacon, salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of feta! Delicious and fills me up! 

3. K Cups  

These Archer Farms Buttery Caramel coffee pods are my absolute favorite lately.  I wake up so excited to make my coffee!  I've cut back on creamer, so I needed something with good flavor - these are perfect, a little sweet and a little salty.  The perfect combination in my opinion!  

4. Snacks

My go-to snacks lately.  I've been loving these on an every day basis.  Lara bars are my jam, and I love this flavor.  Also, the Choc Chip Cookie Dough, and the Banana Bread are amazing!
These crackers are the crunchiest, yummiest crackers!  I love them with hummus and turkey piled on top, or just plain for an on-the-road snack!  (I found both at Target!)


1. Lipsense!

My sweet friend, Kelly, introduced me to Lipsense a month ago, and was so sweet to send some my way!  She explained that Lipsense is a unique product that molecularly bonds to your lips, and does not budge, smear, rub off, kiss of, etc. ALL day long.  I was skeptical at first, but definitely wanted to give it a try!  I used to love wearing lipgloss and lipstick, but I hardly wear it now, because I don't want to fuss with reapplying, smearing, or getting it all over myself and the kiddos.    

First impression:
I applied in the morning (first the color gloss (Beige Champagne), then the clear top over it), and I fell in love with the color!  It felt great on the lips too!  Not drying at all.  Throughout the day, I reapplied the clear gloss occasionally, as my lips needed a boost of moisture.  The color lasted ALL day long!  It was beautiful, and stayed throughout eating, drinking, smooching, playground-ing, 
and a quick work-out too!  

Well, I'm hooked.  And I have already ordered more!  Just a week after using Lipsense, Ellie "misplaced" my set, and I literally TORE the house apart searching for my latest obsession!  It was nowhere to be found.  I immediately ordered the exact same set again, because I honestly don't want to wear another lipgloss or lipstick, now that I've tried this!  

*This is Beige Champagne on my lips*

Have y'all tried Lipsense?  Let me know what you think!

2. Milani Blush

This gorgeous (and affordable!) blush is an oldie but a goodie!  I've loved it for years, and I always bring it back out during the spring and summer months.  It's the perfect pink color with a hint of golden glow!  There are several high-end blushes that I've tried in this color, and I always go back to this drug-store option!  I find mine at Walgreens or Target. 

3. Anastasia Brow Definer

This may look like a repeat offender as well, BUT it's a newer product to me.  I used to love the Anastasia Brow Wiz, but then she came out with the Definer, which is absolutely amazing!  It gives my brows the color, shape, and hold that they need throughout the day, and the angle of the product is perfect for a precise and quick application.  
(My brows are pictured above - and I'm wearing Soft Brown). 


1. Ball Drop Earrings

I have been ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the adorable the Crispin earrings from BaubleBar after seeing them all over blogs and Instagram.  But I was a little reluctant to fork out almost $50 bucks for a trendy piece of jewelry.  So when I wandered into Charming Charlie (I was waiting to meet a friend for lunch!), and stumbled upon THESE look-a-likes, I had to scoop them up!  And I love them!  I wear them all the time!  
*I can't find them on website, but look in your stores! I think they were $12.99!*



Thanks to John, my Dad, and IKEA for this amazing transformation!  
I'm so in love with this organized and wonderful space! 

Do you have any recent favorites of the month??

I had one bad cauliflower crust fail because I used wax paper instead of parchment paper like an idiot!! So I need to give it another try soon. Yours looked delicious. I'm so sad I missed you on your trip to Pensacola. Hopefully we can get together over the summer!
