Is it just me, or did February fly by? I cannot believe we are already at the end of the month. However, I can’t complain. The further from this month we are, the closer we are to spring, sunshine, and warmer weather.
Although this month flew by, it definitely had its highlights. In today’s post, I’m once again listing some of my monthly favorites. February featured food, fitness, and a couple of new products I’ve discovered along the way. So without further ado…
Here are my February Favorite Five:
1.Primo’s Little Italy Pizza: On Valentine’s Day, a local restaurant, Primo Pizza, had a heart-shaped pizza special. My mother and I stopped in for lunch and tried out their new “Little Italy” pizza, which features eggplant, ricotta, and thinly sliced meatballs. In addition to the adorable heart-shape, this pizza was amazing. Perfect for any fans of eggplant, like me.
2. Colourpop Lux Liquid Lipstick in “Flynn”: I’m always excited when Colourpop adds new products to their Disney Designer Collection. This lipstick, inspired by Disney’s Tangled, was a Christmas gift to me from my sister. It has been my go-to shade whenever I need a natural-looking pop of color. The best part is, it doesn’t dry on your lips and feels very lightweight, almost like a tinted lip bomb or gloss.
3. Orange Theory Fitness: I follow a pretty regular at home workout, two to four days a week, but sometimes I need a challenge. My sister heard about Orange Theory, a fitness studio for all experience levels, and asked if I would try out a class with her. (Your first ever class is free!). The workout classes change each time you go, but the class I went to was for endurance. We met with the fitness coach, who leads the class, a half hour before class began, and she told us about the workout and asked us about our fitness goals. We were given a heart monitor to wear around our arm that will track our heart rate throughout our workout. The goal of Orange Theory is to challenge each of their members out of their comfort zone, in a safe, effective way. I can say that I took the class two days ago, and I am still sore, but I left with energy and felt good that I challenged myself, without feeling forced to do anything outside of my own ability.
4. Donut Shack Donuts: Speaking of working out, how good are donuts? (haha). My dad kept raving about this local bakery that sells very rich, soft donuts. I finally tried one the other day, and have to admit it is worth the hype. The creme-filled I tried was very soft and more doughy than sugary. The inside filling was the perfect balance between sweet and light. I will definitely be trying more.
5. The Curly Hair Method: In the past few months, I have fallen victim to heat styling. A YouTuber I watch, Kathleen Lights, who also has naturally wavy to curly hair that she heat styles, has been speaking a lot about getting her curls back by following the curly hair method. I was inspired and researched the method myself and have decided that I will be getting a healthy cut and color this week and then following this method, with some exceptions, to wear my hair natural more often. Heat causes a lot of damage and breakage on my hair, and I’d like to keep my hair healthy and make sure I’m using the right products. I’ve purchased some new products (see below) and will be testing them out and will be blogging about my experience with the curly hair method. Stay tuned!
March is going to be an exciting month for me as I start a new job, get further into rehearsals for my show that opens in April, and start a new journey with meal prepping. What does your March look like?
As always, thanks for reading!
