February New Finds

I cannot believe how fast February went by!  I know it's a short month but I feel like I blinked and it was over.  Last month, quite a few people checked out my January New Finds so I'm gonna keep it going.  This is such a great place to put in a few things that I wouldn't do a whole post about.  (Raise your hand if you remember when I used to post everyday.  Sigh... how did I do that?!)

This post contains partner links.  Opinions and thoughts are 100% my own. 

First up is my favorite photo from the month which I did last month too.  This is a great quote from Phil Rosenthal's show that I talked about last month as well.  I used to this photo to enter a contest to for a dinner with Phil but I didn't win.  I did, however, end up with a great photo so that's a win, right?

1. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy reboot.  You know what's funny?  Before January, I probably hadn't watched Netflix in 6 months.  We play for the service but I always watched Hulu since it has a lot of shows that are currently on the air.  But Netflix is killing it with these Netflix Originals.  I liked Queer Eye when it was on originally but I never felt profoundly affective by it before.  I know I was younger then.  This new Fab 5 are lovely, vulnerable, and willing to tackle hard topics.  They also vary in ethnicity which I love!  I would watch a hundred episodes if Netflix would just make them.

2. Ugly Delicious.  This is another socially aware Netflix show that stole my heart.  I love food and I love watching shows with chefs!  This show transcends all of that.  I know that David Chang is not for everyone but I like him.  I appreciate how no nonsense he is and that he speaks his mind.  I grew up a lot like him.  I was an Asian kid in a town with not many Asian people and it has a huge effect on how you grow up.  Beyond being a food show, Ugly Delicious is a culture show about breaking down boundaries and understanding different cultures.

3. Bottoms Up Ginger Beer.  I've been looking for a good ginger beer for some time now for Moscow Mules and also for drinking plain.  Bottoms Up is my favorite thus far.  It has a nice amount of sweetness to compliment the bite from the ginger.  I like the ginger at the bottom so I know I'm getting good quality ginger beer and not just ginger flavoring.

4. R Cubed Lifestyle.  I got invited to a lovely blogger brunch at R Cubed Lifestyle.  I fell in love with the space and the owner Shannon Gilley.  She does in store form what I do on my Instagram.  She finds people doing amazing things and she highlights them.  When she was talking to be about the items in her store, every story started with "That was made by a husband and wife team" or "This was made by a lady here in town."  I love that!  The shop is beautiful!  It's filled with home decor, jewelry, art, clothes, and more.  I can't wait to go back!  You can check out R Cubed Lifestyle on Instagram to see the awesome things they have.

5. Volume lashes from Amazing Lash Studio.  I've written about my lash extensions from Amazing Lash before.  I LOVE long lashes!  I always have.  You know, I'm living that unicorn life.  I recently started getting some of the volume lashes and oh la la!  I'm just so happy with the way I look in photos and in real life.  Also, I have really thin natural lashes and the volume lashes apply to my lashes just fine.  You can get $10 off your first set of lashes if book here and use my code LashLuv22.


  1. Ginger beer sounds really good. I've learned over the years that I don't like standard beer but I will definitely give ginger beer a try.
