February Favorites!


Hi everyone, happy Friday!  Yesterday was the beginning of my Spring Break, and my boyfriend and I are heading south early tomorrow morning!  I’ve had a pretty rough week, and I’ve been feeling pretty sick on top of it.  I’m definitely ready for warm weather, and for a week full of relaxation!  Because I had a challenging week, I wanted to write my favorite type of post as a pick me up: a favorite’s post!  So these are my February favorites, and I wanted to share them with all of you because I definitely have a variety of incredible things!



Banana Republic Boyfriend Jeans//Nike Free 5.0//Grey Eddie Bauer Crops

These boyfriend jeans have absolutely changed my life.  I love boyfriend jeans, and these are incredibly comfortable and fit perfectly!  My other favorite denim brands are J Crew, Joe’s Jeans, Paige Denim, and Hudson Jeans!

Fun fact: these Nike’s are children’s size 4.5!  Perks of having tiny feet!  I’ve been wanted a pair of black and white Nike’s, and these are perfect!  They’re really lightweight, and very comfortable!

I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of leggings that are the perfect shade of grey!  These crops from Eddie Bauer are everything I wanted, plus they’re a thick, comfortable material for a great price!  My other favorite legging brands are Lululemon and Nike!

Essie Cascade Cool//Lancome Rose Macaron Lip Gloss//Essie Bachelorette Bash

Both of these Essie polishes have been essentials for me!  I’ve been wearing Cascade Cool on my fingers, and Bachelorette Bash on my toes!  I’m wearing these both right now for my Spring Break trip!

This Lancome lip gloss is the perfect color, and I’ve been reaching for it non stop!  It’s perfect for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, and it’s not sticky or gritty at all!  I’m not a huge lip gloss wearer, but this one is a game changer!



Darling Magazine//Clean Eating Magazine//Ambrosia Magazine

Darling magazine is an amazing magazine for women, and I absolutely love it!  They don’t photoshop/retouch any of the women who are photographed, and they stand for the true beauty of all women!  It’s full of recipes, beautiful photography, and amazing stories!

Clean Eating magazine is full of delicious, easy to make healthy recipes!  Being in college, I really enjoy healthy recipes that are fun and easy to make!  If you’re looking into eating healthy, I would check out this magazine for tips, ideas, and inspiration!

Ambrosia magazine is basically my new obsession!  This magazine pin points specific places in the world, and features the cuisine and recipes as well as local chefs!  It’s filled with beautiful photography, and it’s so inspiring and truly amazing reading about different places in the world!  This edition featured Baja, Mexico!


The Soul Searcher’s Handbook//Leave Your Mark//Adventures For Your Soul

Both the Soul Searcher’s Handbook and Adventures for Your Soul are incredible books for realizing and discovering your full potential!  Both of these books will leave you feeling great about yourself, and inspired by the world around you!  I highly recommend checking them out!

Make Your Mark is a inspirational book when it comes to your career and your success in life!  I actually snuck this one in here because I just started reading it, but I already am obsessed!  I’ll update you all with a better review later!


These are some recipes I’ve been loving, and you should definitely check them out!  I absolutely love seafood, and I have a serious addiction to salads!  Also, all of these recipes can be tailored to people with both gluten and lactose intolerance (like me), and they still taste incredible!


Strawberry Salad & Poppyseed Dressing//Bang Bang Shrimp & Pasta//Cajun Fish Tacos



The Sparrows Coffee Tea & Newsstand//Toronto, Canada

I hope you enjoyed reading about my February favorites, I had so much fun writing this post and I am so excited to share it with all of you!  I’m heading south with my love, so I’ll talk to you all on Monday with a new post!  Have a great weekend!!

xo, Tessa
