As today is the first of March, I figured it was time to do my February favorites. I don’t have a ton of different favorites this month, but I think there is a good mix. Starting with beauty, we have, from NYX a lipstick. It’s a NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Ripe Berry. This is from my February Glam Bag and if you haven’t read that post, I’ll link it below. When I unboxed this lipstick I was excited to wear it and when I put it on it was instant love. It looked different on my lips than it had when I tested it on my hand and in a it was way better. It’s about as dark as I’ve gone with berry toned lipsticks but it’s pretty much perfect. I would definitely recommend it.
My next favorite is an eye shadow. This is a cream pigment from Hikari Cosmetics in the shade Latte. I’m so in love with this shadow. It’s honestly so pretty, the color payoff is great and it blends really well. I will definitely be doing more looks with this shadow.
And my last beauty favorite is a nail polish by Trust Fund Beauty in the shade I Give Good Tweet. It’s in a periwinkle shade, which isn’t a color I already have in my polish collection, so I was excited it try it. I loved this shade in the bottle, and when I put it on it was just as pretty. The formulation is great and it had good staying power. I usually keep a manicure for about a week or so and it stayed looking good for that time. That’s one nail polish I know I will be going back to come spring and summer.
Moving on, my next two favorites are songs. The first is Bell Bottom Blues by Eric Clapton. This is one of those classic Clapton songs, but it had been forever and a day since I’d heard it, so when I put my phone on shuffle and it played it reminded me of how much I loved it. Besides the original Derek and The Dominos, my favorite version of the song is live from the One More Car One More Rider concert Eric did in 2001, but I know it’s a song he’s played since.
My last song favorite is also by Eric Clapton and it’s Lovin’ You Lovin’ Me. This is an old song of his, it’s from his 1970 self titled album and I’m not entirely sure if it’s on any others. I heard this song on one of my Pandora stations and there’s just something about it that made me smile. I knew that I had heard it before, ages and ages ago, but it was nice to hear it again. And if you haven’t heard either of these songs definitely look them up on YouTube.
And speaking of YouTube, my last favorite is a YouTube channel. You guys know that I love the US Navy Blue Angels, I did a post about them last summer, which I will link below. And right now they are doing their winter training in El Centro, California. I really like to watch videos of them practicing and seeing how, if at all they have changed some of the maneuvers. And really seeing how the team is after getting some new additions in the off season. There are a few channels on YouTube where people post this type of video, but my favorite is MKBLUES1. My brother actually told me about their channel and I’m glad he did. I think besides the camera work and how well edited their videos are they have what I’m assuming is a radio scanner and know what frequencies the Blues talk on so you can hear Boss talking and calling out maneuvers, the diamond pilots responding and the solos doing their thing. When I was a kid my brother had a scanner of his own and he knew the channels they talked on, so during Seafair he would turn it on so we could hear the pilots as we were seeing them and people would always come over to us and listen. It was quite fun. So I definitely recommend their channel if you are in to things like that.
That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys have any of the same favorites as me let me know and if not let me know what your favorites were for February.
Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great February :).
