Monthly Faves: February 2013

by agirlandhermutt on March 1, 2013

March! The month of my people…The Irish! Before we jump into the month full force, lets take a minute to look at some of my fave food, fitness, fashion and fun items from the past month….February Favorites!




*Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning– I was perusing the spice section at Trader Joe’s, which isn’t that big but always has something interesting, when this caught my eye. I gave it a try and I love it! It is a mixture of sea salt, black peppercorns, mustard seeds, coriander, onion, garlic, paprika, and chili pepper.  It just mixes with every food perfectly and it has become my go-to seasoning.



*Market Pantry Lean Turkey Meatballs- These suckers are so easy it is stupid. Just stick them in the oven for 20 minutes and you have dinner. I use these for those long days at work when I want to eat at home but don’t want to do ANY prep. Perfect.



*Trader Joe’s Butter Lettuce– Who knew you could have a favorite lettuce? Well, you can and it is not frisee. Ugh. When a menu says “mixed greens” I immediately shudder. Butter lettuce is where it is at and this bag of just that is the perfect base for my salads.




*Real Ryder Cycling– My love of spinning is still strong. I finished 5 weeks of class and signed up for another 5 at Sweat & Soul Yoga. I love the feeling of being completely wiped out after class and look forward to it each week! Check out my review of the class here.

*Wii Zumba-So much fun and a great workout! Check out my review of the game here.


*Tone It Up Weekly Workout Schedule– After TIU’s last challenge, they started sending out weekly workout schedules on Sunday afternoon. I absolutely love this idea and it provides a great way for me to plan my workouts. Best of all…it is free!



*Alex & Ani– I’m in love with these bracelets. They are simple, easy to stack, pretty affordable, and have a great message of positivity.

*Naked Palette– I’m in love with Urban Decay eye shadows and fell in love with the Naked Palette 2. I finally tried out the original and I think it might be even better!


*Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick– These chunky lip pencils not only are moisturizing, but have a great color pay off. They last for a pretty long time (though not all day) and are a great drugstore make-up find!



*The Hobbit Song- I must have listened to this song about a million times. When it becomes viral on YouTube it will because of all my views. This is the super long version and I can’t get enough.


*Top Chef– I love this show and all forms of it. Original, Masters, Just Desserts, All-Stars…all of it. I’m sad this season is over! I haven’t watched the finale, but know who won thanks to an overzealous Tweeter and I’m pleased. It was my favorite from the beginning. 😉



Let me know what some of your favorite products from February are! Any good food or make-up finds?!

Talk to  you on Monday!!!

OH MY GOSH! I love those bracelets so much!! I have to have some! Mother’s Day, my anniversary and my birthday are all in May! SCORE!!!!!
My 2 favorite foods I ate last week were the Original Garden Burger and I just ate the patties with an ounce of cheese 260 calories full as can be! Vanilla Greek yogurt with sliced almonds. I lost 2 and a quarter pounds this week and 2 of them were all fat. See ya fat!
I have been applying Beauty Secrets cuticle oil every day and my nails are really looking much better. Dry CO weather is brutal on my skin and nails.
