Here’s what I’m loving in February

Here’s what I’m loving in February @itsjenniferrose

I want to share a few of my favorite things as of late. And maybe I should start sharing this more often. Since it’s my first time doing this, it is quite an exhaustive list. It ranges from hair and beauty to fashion and everything in between. Enjoy and feel free to comment. Hopefully, you see something you want to check out.

I also need to do a quick write up on our Park City experience during the holidays. I am so geeked to visit again next year. Park City is such an amazing little town with excellent food and activity. And I cannot wait to share with you all.

My two oversized button-up shirts from Aritzia

Oversized button ups are a thing for me. I first fell in love with an old Ann Taylor one I had for years that I, unfortunately, had to get rid of because it was too worn out. Then, Aritzia had a sale and I stumbled upon these two babies. The quality is THE BEST. I believe this is a chic staple everyone should have in their wardrobe. You can wear them so many different ways. I cannot live without at least one.

Initial necklace by Anthropologie

My boss gave all the girls on her team this necklace, and no joke, we all wear it regularly. It is so simple, yet statement-making. I layer it with my Evil Eye necklace or wear it alone.

Red booties from Zara

I got them so cheap on sale, and they are a beautiful soft red leather with tiny silver studs. I’ve worn them almost every other day. They are the perfect winter red shoe.

Similar ones here.

Rag & Bone Mules

My hubby surprised me with these for Christmas, and I died. I was totally not expecting such an incredible shoe. Between these and the red booties, they have been the only shoes I’ve worn for the last two months. And I love that I don’t see a lot of people wearing them.

Dermalogica Phyto Replenish oil

Can Dermalogica make anything I don’t like? I mean, really. Almost my entire skincare regimen is Dermalogica, and adding this wonderful oil has helped so much with dehydrated skin. I tried this before as I got it free through work. And then I just didn’t buy it again. Why? I have no idea. It’s expensive as hell but worth it. It’s lightweight and great for your skin. I use it at night and during the day by mixing it with my tinted moisturizer in the mornings, and it gives me that perfect healthy glow without doing too much and looking greasy. read more

Pinterest To Plate: No Bake Energy Bites on TheDailyMonarch.com

Gosh. It feels amazing to actually sit down and write.  I apologize for my absence, I’ve missed you all so much!  Work has been insane on top of preparing for a third move.  The first move involved roaches, which lead to a second move in under 24 hours.  And we have finally found our perfect place.  On top of that craziness, there’s been 30th birthdays and other events.  So you can imagine, the last thing I wanted to do was pick up my laptop.  But I’m finally back and super excited for what’s to come in all areas of my life right now, and even more excited to decorate our new fancy place and document it all right here. read more

Pinterest to Plate: My Journey to Loving Guacamole

August 7, 2015

Guacamole

Don’t gasp, but I fell in love with guacamole this year.  Yes, 2015. I know, I know.  Whatever you are going to say, I’ve already heard it.  I was just never into the taste. It was always something so off about the taste to me. And I would try it time and time again at various restaurants trying to find the guacamole that would change my mind. But to no avail.  Le sigh.  Then one day, the spark awakened in me as I dipped my chip into the guacamole at Gracias Madre. Eureka! I instantly fell in love. read more
