Hello everyone! Lately I have discovered some absolutely wonderful new products and favorites, so I thought I’d share another installment of fab finds. 😉 Here are a few things I have been LOVING this February…
Let’s ignore the obnoxious name of the lipstick, shall we? The combination of this creamy, hot pink lipstick and shimmering fuschia gloss is absolutely addictive. I have never been much of a lipstick lover, typically being drawn to juicy glosses and glazes (à la Stila’s lipglaze in grapefruit — my fave) instead. But this duo may have swayed me forever. 😉 Perfect for fresh, youthful, springtime pouts! I think they would look stunning on a bolder bride, as well, if you’re not afraid of bright lips!
2) Clutches by AO3 designs
My sweet sister-in-law, Meg, bought me an AO3 clutch for Christmas and I adoooore it! These handmade clutches (sold on etsy HERE and online HERE) come in an array of fabrics, shapes, sizes and styles. Mine (seen above) is a bright and cheery everyday clutch, covered in vintage yellow floral fabric and adorned with a turquoise grosgrain ribbon. I love the pop of sunshine it adds to any outfit, and it is the ideal size for running errands or going out for dinner. I think these clutches would be darling gifts for your bridesmaids (or moms, sisters, girlfriends, etc.), too! Pick a unique one for each girl, customized for her taste, and fill it with her favorite lipstick and a pair of earrings. Perfect!

My fascination with these quirky, one-of-a-kind, found-object robots (hence, fobots) borders on obsession. Since stumbling upon them in an Anthropologie catalog last fall, I have been stalking Amy Flynn’s creations like mad. Each unique character is fashioned from a number of vintage baubles and have a whimsical personality that is simply irresistible. If I had the budget, I would scoop up a troupe of these figures and display them on a long shelf in my office. I’m planning to adopt one soon, and will let you know if and when one makes its way to my office. 😉
4) MAC nail lacquer in “Gee Whiz”
I loooove painting my nails — this is a well-known fact to anyone who has read my blog. (My last installment of fab finds made mention of the fabulous polishes by Rescue Beauty Lounge that I have come to adore.) So, I am often on the hunt for new colors to add to my already-ridiculous arsenal. You know how guests are always peering into medicine cabinets on TV shows and in movies? I have never done that in real life — have any of you?? LOL Anyway, if someone were to look into mine, they’d just find row after row of nail polish. 🙂 My latest acquisition is this fabulous color: a perfect fuschia-red. It applies like a dream, has a slick shine, and alternates between looking like a brazen red and sassy hot pink depending on the lighting. I adore it and am having a hard time not wearing it again this week (as I like to switch my polish color once a week…). 😉
*Although a part of me feels like I HAVE to have one more item to make this a nice, odd-numbered, 5-item list, I am going to end it here! I would say we’ve definitely met the fabulousity quota. 🙂 I would love to know what YOUR fab find was for February; let me know what I can add to this list! Hope you all are having a marvelous week!
