February Favorites... - West + Rose

February Favorites...


Hi there! Long time no see!  It feels so good to start getting back into the swing of things again.  I took some time off over the holidays to spend uninterrupted time off with my family.  Then, January acted like a serial killer and tried to off me in several different ways...and was almost successful...almost. First I got awful food poisoning and then my hubs and I both got the flu...but I am hopeful that things are starting to return to normal (knock on wood).



February is  not one of my favorite months, it is one of my least favorites...but I do love the fact that right behind February is March...which means spring is inching closer and closer.  In the mean time, here are a few of my favorite things for the month of love.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10

This under eye concealer is just the best thing ever. I am currently out and need to get some more ASAP because nothing gives me dark under eye circles like trying to survive this miserable winter.  I have been trying to beef up my skin care routine and and trying to approach it in a more natural way. As I have gotten older, I have become more and more leery of the chemicals that are in most skincare products and have tried to minimize the unnatural chemicals I put on my face.  Over the last six months I have become addicted to witch hazel.  Once I tried Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel toner I fell in love.  It leaves my skin feeling fresh and primed for my Vitamin C primer.  This serum is mostly organic and natural.  I am sure it is not perfect and probably has some unnatural stuff in it, but overall I really like it and have noticed a small difference since I began using it.  I feel like my skin glows just a little bit more than it used to. 

I am dying to try this coconut charcoal whitening powder for my teeth.  I was sent a customized whitening kit nine months or so ago to review on the blog and it was so painful that I had to quit and not do a review.  I do not normally have sensitive teeth, but the experience did show me that, again, I am putting some harsh chemicals on my body.  So I am intrigued by this powder as it seems to be a safer, more natural way to whiten teeth.  Have any of y'all used it?

The rest of the things on here are just pretty little things that I love.  I am especially loving the Rose Gold Fossil Watch...hint hint hubs! 

Happy February!  I hope it is a pretty little month for you...

  1. I use charcoal powder ALL THE TIME. I make homemade face masks, use it to brush my teeth, and sometimes add it to my shampoo to get a good clarifying cleanse once a month. I also mix it with water and drink it when my stomach is upset. It's a natural detoxifier. Here's what I purchased: https://www.amazon.com/Activated-Charcoal-Rejuvenates-Detoxifies-Digestion/dp/B01AMBLL5Y/ref=sr_1_7_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1517931302&sr=8-7&keywords=charcoal
