February was a pretty good month considering that I was able to stay well within my monthly budget (compared to January). I also got a few amazing products including checking off an item from my wishlist and buying a lip stain I’ve been chasing for a while.

Polette, Macy’s, Sephora & Value Village

Macys, Sephora + Polette
The folks at Polette glasses reached out to me to try out their product. They have a large selection of glasses to choose from including classic, wood, and metal frames.  They gifted me with this lovely glasses, which I cannot wait to try out. The robe I have been using for years was overdue for retirement. So when I received a Macy’s giftcard to get whatever I freaking wanted, I pounced on this chic satin wrap robe. And may I say, it was worth every penny!

Ever since I discovered long-lasting lip stains, I’ve never looked back. My favorites lip stains are by Kat Von D and the Sephora store brand. Since January, I’ve been on the search for Kat Von D lip stain in color Bow N Arrow because it is the perfect nude for me. It was always out of stock whenever I tried to get it (available on Amazon for twice the price!). In need of a replacement NARS concealer, I tried my luck once more and behold the Bow N Arrow lip stain was available.

JustFab

Justfab February Buys
JustFab always has cute clothes and shoes. Still in love with the comfortable texture of my faux suede pants, I decided to get the same pants in olive because I’ve noticed more of this shade in mainstream fashion lately. I also loved this low-heeled red pumps and the bow sealed the deal. With spring officially starting in a couple days, I bought this mid-length boots with fringe so my feet do not get too warm wearing my knee high boots. I am glad I was able to mark off this black denim from my wishlist. FYI ShoeDazzle also carries some JustFab products too.

Romwe

Romwe February Buys
These Pantone 2016 colors, serenity and rose quartz got me craving some pieces in these hues. After searching a few places, I settled on this A line rose quartz skirt and this long sleeve serenity bow tie shirt from Romwe. The fit and quality are on point and the price is unbelievable. I also added the black satin choker because it’ll cost me about the same amount (or a little more) to make my own. I ended up shortening the length of choker so it could fit better. 

It’s a wrap! These are the things I bought last month. I am also looking forward to √ing off more things from my wishlist this month. Share with me, what fun piece of clothing did you get last month? As always, thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll be in touch with you soon.
