February Favorite Things

Hey all!

It's my birthday!  I'm hoping 25 is as good to me as the last few years have been.  So anyways, I'll stop talking about myself and start sharing some of my Favorite Things for February:


1.) Pottery Barn on Instagram Follow them here

I just started following Pottery Barn on Instagram, and I can't believe I didn't start earlier.  They are so good about posting pictures of entire rooms to give you design ideas.  I'm also loving the Easter and Spring time decorations they're showing. (Follow me at BeautyandtheGreek on Instagram...after all, it IS my birthday.) :D

2.) Too Faced- Tan Without the Twinkle: Chocolate Soleil Buy It Here 

 I'm looking pretty pale this winter (homegirl needs a spray tan), so I have to be really careful with bronzers.  I love this bronzer because it is very buildable and has no shimmer!  Bonus: It smells like hot cocoa. I mean, it's WONDERFUL.  I apply it in the "3" shape pattern on both sides of my face.

3.) Spartina 449- Phone Wallet Buy It Here

This is probably my favorite in the entire list.  I use it every day, and I get SO many compliments.  This is a wallet, keychain, and phone holder all in one.  Most days, I don't even carry a purse.  It fits my iPhone 5 perfectly, and has a little room on each side and could hold a wider phone as well.

4.) Sriracha Buy It Here

Ok, I've jumped on the whole Sriracha bandwagon.  I'm not a total freak that pours it on everything I eat, but I do love it on omelets and pizza.  Eating spicy stuff in the winter helps keep you warm, right?  I've also heard that it doesn't make you eat as much and speeds up your metabolism, makes you drink more water....blah blah blah.  I just like the taste.

5.) 30 Rock  Buy Them Here

I've been DVRing episodes of 30 Rock and putting one on while folding laundry, eating lunch, or whatever.  I LOVE Tina Fey, and I'm coming across episodes I've never seen before.  This is definitely one of my favorites of all time, not just the month. :)

6.) Tin Tree Gifts- Custom Phone Case Visit Their Website

I've bought two of these cases so far, and I love them!For a custom phone case, they're relatively cheap.  You can customize it any way you want, and they're super speedy to get back to you with your design. They also sell a ton of other customizable products.

7.) Target- Valentine's Day Tumbler Not sold online, but Here is another favorite  

This puppy was on sale for $6 at Target, and I just couldn't pass it up.  It has a rubbery top and band around it and is still dishwasher safe.  It's cute enough for Valentine's Day, but doesn't have a ton of tacky hearts so that you couldn't use it for the rest of the year.

8.) Barely There- Bandini Bras Find Them here

I picked these up at Target, and I LOVE them.  They are perfect for the days that you're just running errands, but want to be comfortable.  The straps are convertible, so they're easily made into one strap or a bandeau style without looking funky.  They're awesome.

9.) Cake Batter Chapstick Buy It Here

I first saw this on Kristie P (from PG Sisters)'s Instagram (follow her @Numbaonerunner).  I searched Target, like tore it apart, and still came up with nothing.  One day, I came home from a pretty rough day at work and found a package from Kristie with a 3 pack of the Cake Batter Chapstick and a nail file.  What a sweetheart! Besides knowing that it was a sweet gift, it's also really great stuff.  The cake batter smell is DELICIOUS!

  7. Happy Birthday! It's the other PG sister's birthday today too! Kara lives in Indy so you guys are def twinning until you move. I am OBSESSED with 30Rock, it might be worth it for you to get Netlix since all the seasons are on there and I've already watched it in like 3 weekends. I'm also going to have to try that bronzer and bras b/c I don't need to be rocking old sports bras on the weekend. So glad you like the chapstick, I may have 3 or 4 packages shoved in a closet at home when I need some more... LOVE your lists! Hope you have a great birthday!!!

  11. happy 25th Birthday!! This is my first time linking up and I think it's an awesome way to share some product love etc.!! My husband is obsessed with Sriracha and eats it on almost everything. I heard they are actually going through a shortage of it because the people who live near the factory are complaining of the fumes or something?

  17. Happy Birthday Emily!! Ever since I saw you post on Instagram about that chapstick, I have looked for it every time I go to Target but have been out of luck! So funny you posted about sriracha! I just bought some the other day because I have been hearing about it so much lately but I haven't used it yet. I'm a little scared of it for some reason! Haha! Guess I just don't know exactly when to try it!
