February Favorites + a Happy Birthday Give-Away!

Happy February Everyone!  Here are some of my favorite things this month:

1. favorite TV guilty pleasure:  The Vampire Diaries/Pretty Little Liars
It’s a real toss-up. I love them both and I’m only a little ashamed to admit it! {photos from and}

2. favorite lip gloss:  Charlotte Ronson A Perfect Kiss Lip Gloss in Annabelle from Sephora
I’m a sucker for lip gloss, especially lip gloss that makes your lips look like you’ve been eating cherry popsicles. And the tube is heart-shaped. So cute!

3. favorite place to buy vanilla beans: Vanilla Products USA on eBay
That’s right, eBay. Those little bottles from the spice aisle at the grocery store that contain 2 crusty beans and cost $8? That’s a racket! Vanilla Products USA has a huge selection at great prices. I use them to make my own extract. Big, nerdy kitchen fun! {photo from}

4. favorite childhood memory spotted at Costco: Ducktales, Talespin, and Rescue Rangers on DVD
I practically screamed out loud when I saw some of my favorite childhood cartoons on DVD at Costco. I couldn’t decide which box set to get, so for less than $10 each I went ahead and bought all of them! {photo from}

5. favorite cute kitchen thing from Anthropologie: Chalkboard Spice Jars
I fill mine with salt and keep it next to the stove, but I know for a fact that it can also be filled with Swedish Fish (idea via [dandee]). {photo from}

Now for the even-more-fun part: because I just had a birthday, I’ve decided to give some of this month’s favorite things away to one lucky reader! If you win, you’ll get

1 tube of Annabelle lip gloss by Charlotte Ronson,
a little sample of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans from Vanilla Products USA,
1 red-lidded Chalkboard Spice Jar from Anthropologie, filled with a little surprise

The give-away is now closed; thanks for stopping by!
To enter to win, please leave a comment on this post. Please make sure I can get in touch with you if you are the winner (ie, leave your email if it isn’t in your profile). The give-away will be open for 1 week; I’ll choose a winner next Wednesday, February 8th. Good luck readers!
