Things I Like - February

My monthly round-up of 5 things I'm liking, all affiliate link free. =)  See more here!

1) Target Weekend Wanderer Sweatshirt
I had been looking for awhile for a crew neck sweatshirt to wear around the house on lazy or not as lazy but still needing a sweatshirt days.  I can't say I'm much of a "weekend wanderer" in the winter...more a "weekend stay at home and avoid the cold" person but it's blue and that's enough for me.  It's super cozy and soft AND on clearance.  I'm wearing it right now!

2) Burt Bees Lip Balm
For over a year now this has been my favorite and go to lip balm.  I buy 4 packs when Target has them on sale, at least 25% off.  They keep my lips moisturized the longest of any I've tried and I particularly like the Vanilla Bean and Coconut flavors.  I keep one on the kitchen counter and one in each of the purses I primarily use so there is almost always one close buy.  I've used a lot of different lip balms over the years but none I've bought as consistently or long as this one!

3) Cash app
This app is awesome and so so handy.  With you you can send money to others directly from your bank account to theirs.  You have to know the person's "cashtag" and initiate the transaction (with a finger print confirmation).  Then you just put in how much you want to send them and the next day it is deposited in their account.  It's free to download and free to use.  My sister and brother-in-law are on our cell phone plan and she uses this each month to send me their portion of the bill.  It saves me a trip to the bank, saves her a check, and saves both of us remembering every month (she has a reminder set on her phone and can pay me instantly!).  Even if that's the only person I use it with (although I recently converted another sister!), it's worth it's spot on my phone!  We've been using it for well over 6 months now with no security problems and it's widely enough used that I think I would have heard if there were any.  Highly recommend to pay other people!

4) Lynwood Navy Fabric
I could almost post a different fabric each month as my new favorite because Jo-Ann sucks me in very easily (although, I bought none on my shopping trip today!).  I've heard leopard print frequently lauded (by bloggers) as the perfect neutral but I could never get into it.  At all.  Then I found this navy leopard-ish print (at least that's what I see) and I'm a little heart eyed over it.  I bought a yard when it was on super sale and it's going to be throw pillows.  Eventually!

5) ELF Eyelid Primer

This stuff is amazing and only cost $2.  That's a pretty high bang for your make-up bag buck.  I don't think I own another make-up item that cost $2!  I put this on before any eye make-up and it makes it last, and not crease, so. much. longer.  It's magic.  Totally worth $2 in my opinion.  $2!

I'd love to hear what you're loving this month!
