First Friday Favorites of February

First Friday Favorites of February. Say that 10 times fast. LOL! That’s a mouthful. I’m pretty excited about what I’ve got to share with you today. This week brought some good great stuff. I’m also linking up with these girls for….

So much to love in one photo. First of all, these leggings! How cute are they? I’ll tell you how cute. Super cute, and I think they’ll look darling with this sweater. They are high rise, hold you in and oh so soft and comfortable. And then there’s this cute workout top to go with them. Cute clothes are a good motivation to work out. #whateverittakes

I’m testing a new (to me) tanning mousse. I’ve seen/heard several bloggers touting this one and I couldn’t resist any longer. So while I had my 20% off at Ulta, I snagged this up. Y’ALL!!!! This stuff is legit. I’ve done an all out experiment for 2 days, tanning one leg. #dedicationforyou I’ll share those photos and the progression in another post, but for now just check out my feet. I even had a friend at bible study yesterday ask me was I using a tanner because my feet looked good. YES, I tanned up the other foot.??

Here are the things you need to know.
*you can see where you apply it
*starts developing within 20 minutes
*dries really fast (almost immediately)
*NO ODOR….I repeat, NO ODOR

There are THREE things in this one that I’m bonkers for. First, these jeans! I have become a huge fan of KUT jeans. They fit me really well and they’re so incredibly comfortable. These are raw edge, and I really like that detail. They’re on major sale, and in stock in almost all sizes. Next up are my new slip-on sneakers. I’ve talked about them a couple of times on my IG story. I have literally ordered who knows how many pairs of shoes this style only to be disappointed because they won’t stay on my foot. These aren’t cheap, but they are on sale for over 50% off. They are super comfy, and look cute with so many things. A little dressier than a lace up sneaker, but all the comfort. The third thing is this ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Tula Cooling Brightening Eye Balm,
First Friday Favorites of February

Yet another product I kept seeing and just couldn’t resist any longer. I literally stood in Ulta looking at it for what seemed like a sweet forever, and finally just decided to get it. Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner friends. You can wear this under or over your makeup. Apply it when you’re getting ready in the morning or later during the day to brighten up under your eyes. I wondered if that wouldn’t totally mess with your makeup, but amazingly, it doesn’t. What does it do? It seriously just brightens under your eyes, with a little bit of a highlighter feel and it’s cool. Not like Fonzie cool, but temperature cool, which makes me wonder if it doesn’t help reduce any inflammation under they eyes. Verdict: Love it!!!!

I’m still getting Rocksbox boxes and having fun playing with, and trying new jewelry. It’s a great way to try styles you are interested in without committing. You can read all about the service here, and use my code COASTTOCOAST2XOXO for your first month FREE.

It’s no secret I have a love affair with Nickel & Suede earrings. Each month they feature one earring at a reduced price. This cheetah cork cut out is February’s, and it’s on its way to me right now. #cantwait N&S has a new Facebook group called Nickel & Suede BFF’s. If you have an account with them, you can join the group and then you’ll get FREE shipping. Sign. Me. Up! Hint: If you don’t already have an account, set one up and then request to join the group. They’ve released some darling earrings for February and Valentine’s Day.

I wanted to be able to switch out my watch band so I ordered this 4 pack. Talk about a good deal. It came with a burgundy, light pink, white and coral. These will all be great colors going into spring. You can get them in a lot of different color combinations, so if you have an Apple watch, check them out. I L O V E my Apple watch. (read my Apple watch review here)


I told you the first Friday Favorites of February were good. Do you agree?

    I’m loving the tanning mousse too! We are going to be bronze beauties! The print on your leggings looks so similar to my Zella leggings (mine are a different shade but the print is so similar) – they are so cute. Glad you found some slip on sneaks that don’t slip off!
    Love ya!!!

      So funny you’d say that about the leggings…BECAUSE that’s why I got them. I have always loved yours so much and wished I’d gotten them. I almost said that in this post. LOL #youretheinspiration #chicago XOXO

    I think you may have sold me on the tanning mousse, I was still on the fence as some of the reviews but when a review comes for you I really listen, lol!! LVE the leggings, I have been finding some to TJ Maxx that I love with great Spring prints. Yours are darling as can be!! Have a great weekend sweets!! xo

    • February 7, 2020 / 7:58 am

      YAY! Yep, I really do like it. I think it’s pricey, but worth it. I’ll have to check leggings in TJM. You have such a great collection!!! XOXO

    I might have to try some tanning mousse before our trip; I tend to be very white.. like blindingly so at the start of summer. LOL.

      Don’t we all. I promise you are not alone. LOL

    Those leggings are the cutest! I need to try out some self tanner because my skin hasn’t seen the sun for days! Great results!

    I’m logging on to Ulta next to order that tanning mouse. I love seeing the results! And I love the Tula eye brightening balm! Have a great weekend!

      I’m so happy with how great it works. Hope you like it too! XO

    You are the best enabler ever…I am on the lookout for some new skincare!!

    Those knotted earrings are beautiful, love knotted jewelry! I also bought new work out gear! Your leggings are very inspiring indeed!

    I think we all need a little tanning mousse this time of year. What a difference in your feet…now that is some blog dedication right there. Have a wonderful weekend!

      Isn’t that the truth. I feel so much better when I have some color. XO

    I have that Tula under eye cream and I have to admit, I really do like the cooling sensation. It just gives me all the oooh and ahhh feels in the morning after I put it on! LOL! I know, I’m silly. I like how that 4 pack has a burgundy band!! I feel like I wear my white band almost all the time, unless I’m doing blog photos or going out and then I have a gold chain band. I think I’m lazy! Lol! I do have several other bands, though.


    • February 11, 2020 / 8:12 pm

      I just told Katie I’d bring her the burgundy band. I love the pink and I know I’ll wear the coral this summer. I love being able to change them. XO

    I love fun workout wear this time of year. It seems to help get over the hump of winter. I love my Apple watch too and would love to find a more dressy band also. It is fun to be able to switch out your bands.


  11. February 9, 2020 / 9:53 am

    I knew when I saw the pic of this post on Bloglovin that you were holding a Tula product, haha! That Tiffany blue packaging is just so distinctive! I have the under-eye balm myself, and I love the cooling aspect of it, but I’ve stopped using it because I found that it was giving my skin a silvery cast? Maybe I wouldn’t have this issue if I used Loving Tan, haha!

    • February 11, 2020 / 8:12 pm

      You’re so funny! That’s odd it was doing that. Maybe after you lay off for a while, you can use it again. XOXO
