A Few Of My Favorite Things || February + A Giveaway

I thought that it'd be a fun idea to start a monthly roundup of things I'm loving lately, as an add on to my A Few Of MY Favorite Things series. Some of the things I share will be beauty products while others will be books, a favorite article/blog/blog post, or some piece of clothing I'm swooning over at present. Basically, I want to share what I'm loving in monthly increments.

1. MY CAMERA! This purchase has been years in the making and it was so worth the wait! What do I love about my camera? Everything!!! It's a Canon T3i and it's been in my hand every minute since I got it in the mail… Well, not EVERY minute, but you know what I mean… like almost every minute :)

2. I don't know if you've tried these Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms, but they are wonderful! I love it in Peach Kiss! This particular color is not too pigmented so that it looks chalky or orangey (because of the shade) but not too sheer where it looks like you have nothing on. In my opinion, it's the perfect lip balm nude shade with just the right amount of gloss.

3. I received this Vera Bradley All-In-One Wristlet from Liza in a mail swap we hosted a few months ago. I love it so much and I can prove it: I take it with me everywhere! I love everything Vera Bradley but this wristlet is a favorite because it's so super functional for me! I can fit my ID in the window on the front, my debit card, library card, metro card in the slots on the side, loose change in the zipper pocket and small miscellaneous doodads in the inner and back pockets. On most days, I don't leave home without it! Oh, and mine is in the pattern Cupcakes Green.

4. I love sharing photos on Instagram (@kianna_rose) but sometimes I like editing them a bit before posting them. I use a few different apps, but one of my new favorites is the VSCOcam app. They have amazing filters and you can easily edit their intensity too! The VSCO filters give my photos an ethereal look to them. I've been using this app to edit most of this month's IG photos.

Now onto something fun: I found some products this month that I really love and I want to give one of you ladies a chance to try the Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss! Yes, all you have to do is comment below and tell me what are some of your favorite products. (Giveaway open until 2/27. Must live in the USA)

Also, stay tuned for next months edition (which I promise will have many more favorites)… and you guessed it, another giveaway!

(Disclaimer: The items in this post were not selected or mentioned for review)


  1. Well, some of my favorite products this months have been EOS lip balms, a really pretty shimmery eye shadow from ELF, and my Kindle Fire which I won in a giveaway. :) Thanks for the giveaway, and for sharing your favorites!

  2. I've been enjoying my Burt's bees lip balm and just about finished it, so this giveaway would come in handy! I tried vsco cam but wasn't awed, maybe you'll have to show me its potential. Excited for the future monthly favorites.

  3. I have two favorite products to share with you! Both of them were gifts I have recieved.
    The first is Burt's Bees Lip Balm. I have the kind called Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil which I love because it isn't too glossy, but gives just the amount of moisture you need.
    The second is a product from the line güd also from Burt's Bees. It is a body mist that smells absolutely lovely. It is called Vanilla Flame.
    The great thing about both of these products is they are all natural. The lip balm has pomegranate oil in it along with other natural ingredients. And the body mist is made from vanilla and rice milk which gives it a great freshly sweet smell with no chemicals!

  4. Probably super boring...but my method cleaners:)

  5. I love all of your favorites! Right now my favorite things are an oversized purse/bag from Target, a super fun pair of striped leggings, and of course all the fun stationary I have been buying in the Target dollar bins!

  6. Oh my kianna I love ur blog it's amazing but I will hav to agree with u my fav is my camara but the one in my iPod and keep up the good work on ur blog it's amazing I lov it ❤️❤️

  7. I am enjoying my Vera Bradley Mandy bag. I am using it much more than I thought I would!

  8. Few of my favorites:: Nivea lip butter. That is amazing! ( + you introduced it to me. ) And I'm reading Loves Does by Bob Goff and I'm really loving it! I'm also really loving coconut oil for my dry skin. It is really awesome! That's it for now! ;D
    p.s. looking forward to your other favorites posts in the future!
