Aveeno Utra-Calming Foaming Cleanser 
My skin typically sensitive in a winter time, especially now that temperatures dropped in Florida. I’ve been using this product everyday for the past two weeks and I love it! Besides lifting away dirt, oil and makeup, it’s not over drying or aggravating my skin. I did a review on it this week, you can read about it here.
 
Essie Mint Candy Apple Nail Polish 
The first time I wore this polish, I immediately fell in love with it. It has become one of my top 5 favorites this year. This nail polish is really a beautiful shade. I bought it for around $8 at Ulta. It’s almost a mixture between tiffany blue and mint, which I find to be really flattering on my skin tone. Like all Essie nail polishes the packaging is really cute and I like the brush/applicator. This is really opaque and I can get away with 1 coat, but I normally apply 2 to get the colors full intensity.
 
Lipton Blackberry Vanilla Herbal Tea
As much as I love drinking coffee every morning, I’m also a lover of drinking hot tea every evening before I go to bed. It relaxing me and I sleep a lot better. This week I’ve been enjoying Lipton Blackberry Vanilla Tea. Yummy! This is seriously like blackberry cobbler in a cup. It is a bit tart but I love fruity/tart teas. It smells amazing and color burgundy/maroon is beautiful.
 
Dana Buchman Purses
I needed a new purse, so my husband bought me not one, but two on Valentines Day. I love the colors that he picked. One of them is yellow and white, perfect color for upcoming spring season. Other one is multi color. The cool thing is that both purses match colors on my wallet, so no need for a new one.
 
Christina Perri Album 
I’ve been listening to her songs everyday this week. Her voice is truly unique and haunting, you can feel the emotion in every note she sings. Plus she’s an inspired song writer-beautiful lyrics and melodies you’ll be humming along to all day. My top favorite songs are: “A Thousand Years” from a movie “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”, “Human” and “The Lonely”. If you haven’t discovered Christina Perri yet, it’s time.
 
Diamond Ring 
This is another present from my husband on Valentines Day, a beautiful diamond ring, which I’ve been wearing everyday since he gave it to me. I’m so lucky and so in love!
 
365 Blog Topic Ideas Book by Dana Fox
I’ve been eyeballing this book since the time I’ve started blogging. So finally, I ordered it on Amazon a week ago. Book is written by Dana Fox, who is also a blogger. You can find her blog here. This book is great for those starting out who want ideas on how to get their feet into the blogging world or for bloggers who are already established who have either hit a creative wall or want to branch out with their writing topics.
 
Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom Mascara
My new favorite mascara. I will buy anything packaged in pink. This mascara looks so cute in pink with flowers in the tube so I had to get it. It’s separates and lengthens my lashes and keeps them soft. My lashes are nice and dark, noticeably longer and my eyes just look very doll-like in general. My bottom lashes look especially lovely with this on and it doesn’t clump at all.
 
Starbucks Stainless Steel Tumbler
This is probably my fourth purchase of a Starbucks travel cup. The reason why I always go back to Starbucks to buy one, because they are a very good quality and can last you for a very long time. This tumbler’s insulating double wall helps to keep my coffee hot when I’m on the go. A grippy center band makes the tumbler easy to hold, and the twist-on lid features a flip-top that seals tight helps to prevent spills. Very satisfied customer!
