February Favorites

February Faves // Adventure In Lipstick

Hello! This month seemed to flash on by, and I’m not sure if it’s because it’s a shorter month or because January took forever to trudge on by. Either way I’m excited to start getting warmer days more frequently; I’m a spring and fall gal at heart so the more time spent in those seasons the better. Who else is ready for skies out thighs out weather?! Everyone? COOL.

Until that time though I thought I’d share some of my favorites from this month. Bye bye birth month, hello end of winter!

Weekly Roundup 4 // Adventure In Lipstick

First roundup of February, wahoo! My new sweatshirt (which I’ll show you soon!!) and a future robe in fabric form, waiting to be cut and stitched up. 😍

Anyway, here are a few things that have caught my eye this week:

Madewell’s AND The Loft’s larger sizes. Y’ALL. Two of my fave clothing brands now have more inclusive sizes!!! As I mentioned earlier I’ve been lusting after a certain skirt from The Loft (which I got for my birthday, thanks mom!) and now that The Loft is having a 40% off sale this weekend (along with an additional 20% off sale items) I’m having trouble not caving on my no spend February. And Madewell is having a 20% off sale items sale too! Unfortunately (or fortunately for my bank account) not a ton of the larger sizes have made their way to the sale section, so I’ve rounded up my picks for both the sale AND the new sizes below!*

Weekly Roundup 3 // Adventure In Lipstick

Well hello! Who else has been slammed by the winter weather we’ve been getting? I shoveled the driveway THREE times in two days; it was… not fun. But it also gave me an excuse for not getting out of the house to go to the gym.. whoops! I also just bought this beautiful sweatshirt fleece to make a sweatshirt from Seamwork (see below) and I’m so hyped to receive it and get to sewing!

Unfortunately both the lipstick and tumbler are sold out and I’m frankly too lazy to find dupes for the lipstick color. BUT does have a bunch of cute alternatives and I’ve created a handy lil widget so you can shop them below!*

Anyway, onto the list of my loves for the week!

Three women find their perfect reds.

Me, loving lipstick? Whatever gave you that idea?! I firmly believe everyone should know their perfect red, and I try to spread the love as much as I can. Read More

Weekly Roundup 2

Weekly Roundup // Adventure In LipstickHappy second week of the New Year! Have you had a good one? I’m pretending that the warmer weather means spring is almost here which means farm fresh fruits and veggies are right around the corner… I know I’m setting myself up for disappointment, but let me live my fantasy life please.

Here are some things I’ve loved this week:

The Hate U Give. This book. Holy shit. I think it should be required reading for everyone. Even if you’re no longer in school. Read this book. Now. Then we can cry about it together. Honestly, if you haven’t read it yet go buy it or put a hold on it at your local library (guaranteed there is at least ONE hold on it already). I’ll wait for you to read it then we can talk about it, I promise.

This figure skating routine. SHE’S ONLY 16!!!! What?! And she sang the version of Whitney’s song that she’s skating to. Like??? Wow. The only similarities 16 year old Chelsea has with her is that we both had braces. She’s incredible and I can’t wait to see what comes next for her. Also, I definitely teared up (okay okay I cried) watching this routine.

Link Roundup 1 // Adventure In Lipstick

Whew buddy, who else is not a fan of this cold? My dog, diva that she is, is luckily doing pretty well with the snow and actually loves getting to run around in it. Me? Not so much. But the things we do for love, right? Right.

Aside from the gross weather there’s been a lot going on! From the new year starting, to figuring my shit out (more on that later!) to making more concrete strides to be healthy and happy this year I’ve been busy reading various articles that are all in that vein. I’m going to be rounding up my favorites weekly, and I’d love to know what you’ve been reading, watching and listening to every week as well!

Madewell Sale!! All sale items are 40% off until Monday (!!!) and I am here for it. I tend to keep my wishlist chock full of items and periodically go through to weed out things that are no longer available.. so I have about 15 items that are finally on sale and I’m having trouble not pulling the trigger on it.. whoops. See some of my picks below! Note: some of the prices are the regular price, but if you click through they should show the sale price.
