This has been my winter fragrance and I’ve loved dousing myself in especially thsi February. It’s fresh yet fruity, soft yet commanding, and sensual yet not too overpowering. Plus the bottle and packaging are very adorable. $130 for 100ml

I’ve been UBER lazy when it comesto putting on my makeup this month so this has been my saving grace. All I do do is sweep it all over my face and it blurs everything, and give me a glow I do not deserve. Run and buy it @ $30 a pop!

SMASHBOX: LIQUID LIPSTICK IN GIRL GANG

You see that little smirk on my face above, that’s the face you make when you find the perfect plum/fuschia lip colour you’ve been searching for since eternity! I love using this paired with Mac lipliner in Nightmoth or Color pop’s Ellarie for an ombre look. The smashbox liquid lip lasts FOREVER and doesn’t dry out my lips AT ALL. You know the deal…go run and buy $24

ABH: CLEAR EYEBROW GEL

Already a cult fave, not a lot of words needed. This simply keeps my brows in check and helps my lazy self leave the door looking like a high functioning adult.

SELF MADE SHEA BUTTER SOUFFLE

I love using Shea butter as a body moisturizer in the winter months. I however also find the raw version very hard to use, and not very exciting. I then discovered a line called Karité sold by a lovely pair of Ghanaian sisters in Dekalb market, and fell in love with their shea butter body cream. The $50 tag for their cream is a little steep to repurchase every month, so I looked into making my own Shea butter body cream. I simply add some essential oils and whip it into a consistency I love and voilà! My very own body cream.

What have you guys been living this month?
