ipsy: february glam bag.

(Let's just ignore the fact that it's already March...where did February go?!)

Oooooh, I loved my February Glam Bag from Ipsy! So many amazing products that I almost want to say that it's my favorite bag so far.


Of course, I love the pink theme for February and Valentine's Day. Super cute but not overly cheesy!

Here's the rundown of what I received:

1. Large Angled Face Brush by Luxie Beauty // This is a wonderful brush! I've been using it with my blush and bronzer. It's so soft and helps things go on smoothly. I really like the large handle and rose gold accents.

2. CARGO Cosmetic, Mini Lip Gloss in Anguilla // Honestly, not a fan. The consistency itself is great, but the shade is SO light. Like almost white. I just don't think I can pull it off.

3. Composition No. 1 Parfum Oil by JOYA // I really like this scent! It almost has a vintage vibe to it with great floral notes. This was the first time I received perfume in a glam bag (I once received body splash) and hope I get to try another scent soon.



4. ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini // I have been searching for a coral-y blush for a while now, so I am super excited about this. I've used it a few times -- mostly waiting until spring/summer for this shade. It's great with my fair skin, blond hair and blue eyes!

5. Rob Scheppy for 'Tini Beauty Eyeshadow in Pearl Fizz // Ipsy has been on point when it comes to eyeshadows in my glam bags. I love this champagne color; it's one that I use almost every day for a simple, natural look.

You can sign up for Ipsy too - it's only $10/month!

this week's groceries ($44 at trader joe's).

First off...March? I cannot believe how fast the past two months have gone. I am so, so excited for March to be here and am certainly ready for spring weather! Also, I turn 28 (TWENTY EIGHT) in 10 days, so there's that. Ahh!

It's been a while since I've done a groceries recap. Today is a somewhat normal Sunday for me, which I haven't had in a while, so I was up early and the first one at Trader Joe's this morning. I love shopping at TJ's early on Sundays...I'm usually the only one there, so I can take my time ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the new products. :)

Here's what I bought this morning:


Spinach // smoothies
Milk // granola and smoothies
Bell pepper // wheat berry black bean chili
Eggs // soft-boiled snacks
Carrots // snacks


Tortilla chips // to serve w/ chili
Black beans, tomatoes, sweet potato, onion, lime // wheat berry black bean chili
Five seed almond bars // snacks
Coconut oil spray // pantry staple
Bananas // smoothies


Ice cream cones // these are a mini version with only 70 calories!
Veggie broth // wheat berry black bean chili
Blueberries // granola and smoothies
Cheese sticks // snacks
Fruit bars // these are SO good. They are all apple-based, but then I got the coconut, banana and strawberry varieties. 

So that's what $44 will get you at Trader Joe's! Have a lovely Sunday.
