Kim's February Favorites

It's already March, but we just got snowed in with another 8+ inches overnight. Call it global warming or whatever, but this weather is wack. Anyways, I'm not here to small talk with you guys about the weather (though you are free to in the comments below :P ), but I want to share with you the things I've been coveting for the past month.

Kim's picks
  1. Tapestry print thrifted sweater: I love the amazing detail on this knitted sweater. The pastel colors really pop against the black...and who doesn't love mirror prints x grandma style? See it on me on our instagram
  2. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine serum: I gave this product a try on the recommendation of Yvonne. I follow the directions on the bottle, and I think it makes my hair look shiny and healthy. Definitely not a bad price point for a shine serum either, especially if you use a coupon from the Sunday weekly ads.
  3. Garnier Fructis Sky-Hi Volume mousse: The second product I picked up was this mousse which I've decided I like. My hair is super fine and flat, so I do what I can to give some boost to my hair. My routine consists of washing my hair, waiting for it to dry all the way, and sleeping in a high half-pony. When I wake up and style my hair, I squirt a golf-ball sized dollop of mousse and work it in my roots. I usually wait for the mousse to dry with my head upside down. The mousse usually keeps the volume almost all day.
  4. Wet n Wild MegaLast lip color in carrot gold: This color has been carrying me through the long dreary winter days at college. It's a neon orange with pink undertones. It has gorgeous color payoff and is super cheap--- not a bad deal if you just want to try some color. It's a matte lip color, so it's not that moisturizing, which is okay as long as you've prepped your lips.
  5. Asos bobble beanie: Baby pink is definitely having a moment. I picked up this pom-pom hat on Asos clearance for about $6 (similar). Such a steal, but I was nonetheless hesitant only because I thought I wouldn't have the chance to wear it...but lo and behold it is still below freezing, so that was silly of me. 
  6. Superga sneakers: I have been searching high and low for some trusty white canvas shoes to wear with just about anything. I know I could have picked up a basic pair at Target or something, but I wanted something a bit cooler but not a pair of Converse (although they are stylish, I don't think they are comfortable at all...Vans are much better if I had to compare the two). Superga shoes are the Keds of Italy, so they are kind of expensive. So, I looked on Poshmark and found a white pair in just my size. I love them to death but have minor OCD about keeping them fresh and white. We'll see how long that lasts.
  7. Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea: This is obviously not a beauty or style-related favorite, but it has been keeping me calm during this credit-loaded final semester. It tastes a little sweeter than the normal Chamomile tea, which is nice, especially with some milk.
Happy Monday!
