February Favorites | Books, Beauty, & Cinderella

Happy March, everybody!

I recently uploaded a video on my YouTube channel with some bookish and beauty favorites from last month, and I wanted to share the pixie dust here too!

There's a mini Sephora haul...

...some lovely scents from L'Occitane en Provence...

...some pretty nail polish colors from Estee Lauder...

...and a few books:

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (love the beautiful Puffin in Bloom edition with cover art by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co!)
When Wanderers Cease to Roam by Vivian Swift (a gift from my cousin Becky, full of pretty paintings, sketches, and travel reminiscing)
The Four Seasons: Poems by Everyman's Library Pocket Poets (makes it easy to find a poem to match your mood and the weather!)

Currently I have Emily Dickinson stuck in my head...

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period -
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you...

I've caught the light whispering to me from the furthest tree a few times, now that March is scarcely here, but I think everybody's impatient for the other signs of spring to arrive too - the flowers and the grass and the green!

We can combine beauty and books and poetry in the same blog post/video, right?  I think Belle would approve! :)

Another favorite from February has been the Cinderella collection at Kohl's -- so many lacy spring dresses.  Just a few more weeks until the movie comes out!


I didn't include these in the favorites video, because they have a video all of their own:

Hope it's a Happy Tuesday!
