february favorites

Some favorites from December, January, and February.

The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines. I'm a big fan of all things home renovation and therefore, Fixer Upper on HGTV. I read their book in one sitting! Loved learning about how they got started with both business and their family.

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask. I have a face mask addiction, but surprisingly this is my first peel-off mask. I got a free travel size in a recent Sephora promotion and it's great. I think I might buy the full size when this runs out!

Make Me (Cry) [Acoustic] by Noah Cyrus feat. Labrinth. I love the acoustic version of this song and could listen to it over and over again. 

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I started reading this in fall 2016 but then took a break when the holidays took over. Finally finished reading it and now I can't wait for the HBO show! I really enjoyed the book so I'm interested to see how it plays out on TV. Just need to sign up for that HBO free trial!

Lady Lovin' podcast. My latest podcast obsession. I just discovered it and started all the way back with their first podcast. It's some entertaining girl talk.

Glamglow Supermud mask. This was a Christmas present to myself that I got an amazing deal on. I love it.

Issues by Julia Michaels. I heard this song on Selena Gomez's instagram and bought it soon after. On repeat!

homemade granola

In college, I spent a lot of weekends at my cousin's house since they lived so close to campus. Sometimes my aunt would have homemade granola that we ate for breakfast. I had never had granola before, and it was delicious. Years later when I started getting into smoothie bowls, I called her up to ask for the recipe. She gave me the recipe but with no measurements. She said she just eyeballs it and so I do too! I usually make this every other week to have with my breakfast smoothie bowls.

Olive oil
Vanilla extract

1. On the stove, combine olive oil, honey, and vanilla extract on high heat until it bubbles.
2. Reduce heat to low and add oats. Stir until oats are well coated.
3. Heat on low for 10 minutes. Stir and repeat until oats have cooked for about 30-40 minutes.
4. Let cool. Store in an airtight container.

Just make sure not to over do it with the honey or the granola might be too sticky. I've definitely done it before.
