February Favorites

It's the third month of the year already! Okay, please slow down! I don't want 2019 to fly by like 2018 but it looks as if it's on track to do so.

(Sighing).... There are going to be so many changes for us this year. My last step-son will be moving out in August. He is going to college. When I met him and married their dad he was only 3! I can't believe it went by that quickly and yesterday was our 15 year wedding anniversary. 

Okay, enough sad talk. Let's get right into my February favorites.

Love my winged tote, see here to read it! 

Now the first on my list are actually items that I just purchased but I like them a lot! These beautiful large, pale pink faux pearl earrings are from H&M. I searched vigorously for the link but to no avail. 

I searched for the gray scarf also but could not find it. I did, however, find these.

Next, are these beautiful slingbacks from Calvin Klien. I actually purchased these at our local consignment store called Style Encore. I only paid about $17 and they are super chic and comfortable. I did run a search on Ebay and found some of these.

Fourth on my list is this small sample of facial cleanser called Tatcha. I was given this sample sometime last year with my free gift with purchase. I saw it in my product drawer and I thought, "Okay I will give this a try". It is wonderful! My skin glowed on day 2! If you know of a company or place that will give you a free sample of this, take it! It's a wonderful facial cleanser. 

Fifth on my list is this oldie but goodie. It is called Living the Good Life by Martha Stewart. My husband purchased this book for me about 5 years ago (it was published in 2013) and I have not read it until now. It is great! I can't seem to put it down. 

Here is a look at some of the paragraphs in the book. Also, I use postcards as bookmarks. This is one of my favorites. I found it in Charleston last year. 

And last but certainly not least is this great two-minute video of one of my favorite scenes from Mrs. Doubtfire. I already loved the elegant home that they lived in but wouldn't it be nice to come home to this elegant meal? Great scene and funny! 

I hope that you enjoyed my favorites from February. March is going to be a busy month for me. I have my daughter's birthday, step-son and husband! The worse part is that they are all in the same week! I will also be traveling to Washington, D.C. at the end of the month for more work-related training. I hope that things will go well and that we just enjoy our time. Have a good weekend!

  1. Mrs Shockley your mention of having the Martha Stewart book for five years, before reading it, made me smile. Because i have lots of books that i have not yet read. However when I do get around to reading one, I usually really enjoy it. I think why didn'nt I read this book before now! Just that life gets in the way. June

    1. Hello June,
      You are not alone. It takes me a while to get through my books. I still have several on my bookshelf that I have not read yet. I try to get through them one by one. Thanks for reading June!
