Finds on a Budget: February Edition

Hey y’all! I’m so glad you enjoyed my Finds on a Budget post from January! I got a lot of good feedback (especially about the Avarelle Acne Patches– if you haven’t tried them, you NEED TO), so I’m super excited to share my finds for February. If you follow me on IG, you may notice that I haven’t been as active in posting. Honestly January and February are just hard months- the weather is all over the place in NC and I’m just generally feeling uninspired. I promise I’ll be back to our usual schedule come springtime!

BEAUTY FAVES

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel (great in the winter)
Sleeke Microfiber Hair Towel
The Ordinary “Buffet” Serum (game changer
Covergirl TruBlend Concealer
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream (more expensive, but lasts for a loooong time)

All of these are great to combat winter beauty probs. Since I balayaagyage (does anyone even really know how to spell that) my hair, it’s very breakable. The microfiber hair towel helps a LOT with breakage, especially when it’s dry in the winter. I know I mentioned it above because the Kiehl’s Facial Cream doesn’t really seem like a budget option. However, if you’re going to invest in anything, you should invest in your skin. Drew and I both use this and we’ve been using one container since last summer. It’s worth it.

FASHION FAVES

Stars Above Sweatshirt (literally softest sweatshirt EVER)
Baublebar Earrings
Old Navy Knit Twist Front Jumpsuit (perfect for workwear bc SLEEVES)
American Eagle Jeggings
Lily Rain Initial Necklace (perfect for a gift but also for yourself)

Stars Above is a new Target loungewear line and it is AMAZINGLY soft. It’s the perfect line to travel in, or if you’re into following the rules, LOUNGE in.

FITNESS FAVES

Gaiam Yoga Duffle Bag (has an outside sleeve for your mat I LOVE IT)
Longsleeve Crop Top
UnderArmor Non-Slip Headbands
Mini Ab Ball (really good for yoga/barre workouts at home)
New Balance 997S (love for weight training because they have good support)

The yoga duffle bag was an absolute GAME CHANGER for me. Instead of rolling into Corepower like a hot mess, I roll in looking FRESH as heck with my yoga mat in the sleeve and everything else zipped up in the bag. You need this. Also, technically the 997S are lifestyle shoes, but I use them during weight training because they’re pretty flat, but I feel like my feet are supported. I need all the support I can get, y’all.

HOME FAVES

Set of 4 Gray 11″ Storage Cubes
White Beaded Chandelier (in our kitchen- easy to install and beautiful!)
Kirkland’s Cow Painting
Oversized 67″x83″ Throw Blanket (got this for Drew for Valentine’s… he LOVES it)
Flush-mount LED Light

Some of these are oldies, but they have brought me great joy recently. We just updated all of our boob lights (pretty sure that’s the technical term) with these LED lights and we LOVE them. It’s hard to tell in the pictures but they’re white so they blend right into the ceiling, but they give off SO MUCH LIGHT. Also, the cow painting has been a favorite since we moved into the house, and I just saw that she was BACK and on SALE, so get it before she’s gone again!

I hope that you enjoy these things, and they make your life a little easier! If you have any questions about specific products, let me know in the comments below!
