Winter 2020 Torrid Haul

If there's one thing that I love, it's finding a good sale or discount! And one thing that keeps me from taking advantage of ordering from Torrid is the high shipping cost. Thanks, but no thanks! Rewind to a few weeks ago when I opened an email from them giving me $25 off of a $50 purchase and free shipping to Canada. I had to take advantage! Okay...I didn't have to take advantage, but I have no regrets that I did. I gave the heads up to my SIL at the same time, because I'm an enabler extraordinaire! ;)

I didn't go too crazy, only buying three clothing items and a belt. As you'll see below! The $25 off could not be applied to sale items, but I couldn't pass up two of the items that were on for a great deal. And again, it was nice to have free shipping and access to the online exclusives. My order came about three days after I ordered, which was faster than I thought it would arrive. I wouldn't pay the full shipping, but I'd order when they have free shipping again. Until then, I don't mind going into one of my local stores. If you are unfamiliar with Torrid, they offer clothing in sizes 10-30. While I often find their clothing at the regular pricing too expensive, I live for their clearance and sales.

InstaMonth for January 2020

Am I super late on this post this month? You betcha. Considering I completely forgot to do a December favorites post, I guess they even each other out in the absent-minded category. That may not be how it works, but I'll go with it!

If you're new here, I usually do a round-up of highlights from my Instagram over the last month. This is mostly because the algorithm doesn't always show my photos and I own this domain and want to share them somewhere other than Instagram. So I'm going to get to typing up this post so I can go get ready and figure out what I'm wearing tonight for our Valentine's Day dinner. :) Hope you all have a lovely weekend! It's a holiday weekend here with Monday being Family Day. I am definitely looking forward to a three day weekend!

Blog of the Month for February 2020: A Brash Attitude

In January, Chelsea from ChelseaMakeup14 was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I'm featuring Jodi from A Brash Attitude. Focusing on cruelty free makeup and skincare products, Jodi posts quite often so you're due to find a new item or two to try! Her latest review is on the Fitglow Beauty Good Lash + Mascara. She features brands and products I didn't even know existed, which is always fun. If you stop by her blog, feel free to let her know I sent you. :)

January 2020 Beauty Favorites

I actually completely forgot to do a faves post for December. I blame the horrible cold and sinus issues I was having for the oversight or just the enjoyment from having went home for the holidays. I can say that most of the items I would have featured in a December favorites post are featured in my Top Beauty Favorites of 2019 and I packed most of these when we traveled! Anyway, it is still super unlike me to miss one of these posts and it's driving the perfectionist part of me a little nuts...but it happens!

I know some people complained about January feeling super long and I can agree since my household was sick a good chunk of it and the days feel longer when you're unwell. BUT I'm also kind of grateful when it feels like time is slowing down, because these years and months are swooping past at what feels like warp speed. Now why can't it feel slow on days off, weekends, or vacations, that's the real question. Haha! Anyway, with January feeling longer, it made it feel like more time to enjoy these products. ;)

Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish Gloss in Katie

I picked this up at Ulta while home for Christmas! I'm pretty sure it first came on my radar when I saw makeupbytiffanyd wearing it in one of her YouTube videos and it caught my attention. I have a  shades from the Plumping Lip Polish line of Buxom, including the one that so many of us beauty lovers fawn over - White Russian. I don't always reach for plumping lip products, because I just don't feel them necessary in my everyday life nor do I enjoy the feeling/tingling of them all of the time.

I will say that compared to other plumping products I have tried before, the tingling of these isn't as strong. You can still feel it working and the coolness effect. Katie is going to be a gorgeous shade for spring and summer. See below for my thoughts and swatches!
