February Favorite Things

by Ally Harding, 5:00 AM



Linking up today for my favorite things about February
Beauty and the Greek





{ONE}
First of all, I'm just happy January is over. January is my least favorite month of the year. Nothing against January personally, it's just it comes after Christmas and it's a let down Christmas is over. Plus it's been way too cold this year so far and I'm ready for some warmer temperatures.  



{TWO}
I've been looking forward to February for awhile because this Friday I'm headed here



to do this


It'll be my first cooking class and I'm really looking forward to it. I would love to know how to use knives correctly and just how to cook the right way. I can follow a recipe but having a professional teach me would be awesome.



{THREE}
Valentine's Day has never been a big deal to me. I've always felt like why should you shower your loved one with gifts and go out of your way to do something special just one day. Everyday should be special. At the same time I am a girl and I do love flowers and candy and I hope *fingers crossed* Theo is reading this and surprises me with a little something special. 


Like this baseball cap to wear to the beach or when washing my hair just doesn't sound like a fun idea



or these adorable d'orsay flats that would go with everything


Yup, I'm pretty sure these would make me a happy girl on V-day



{FOUR} 
Peter Pilotto for Target is in stores and online on February 9. If you don't know who they are take a look at some of their pieces on celebs



They design gorgeous crazy pieces with tons of color. Their look book for Target looks pretty good but I won't get my hopes up considering most of the designer collaborations with Target are a bust.



{FIVE}
In my attempts to eat healthier this year it also means I have to get Theo on board too. He isn't a big vegetable fan but somehow he loves brussels sprouts. We always roast them, and they're delicious but I'm also looking for new ways to eat them. This recipe for The Best Brussels Sprouts looks so yummy and easy I can't wait to try it.

  3. I've been trying to get on the brussels sprouts train, also. Cameron loves them but I'm not 100% convinced yet. Have a recipe on my meal plan this week that combines them with gorgonzola and cranberries! TGIFebruary!

  6. I love to cook! But was actually thinking the other day how I hate how slow I slice and dice...I may need to take a class! How fun

  7. I completely agree about January it's such a blah month. I always forget about those big designer launches at Target and then I go online a few days later and everything is sold out (like the Phillip Lim bags). I like the prints especially for the spring.

  13. Loving the new line at Target. Have fun at your cooking class; can't wait for the full report! And yes, you need a monogrammed hat because one, you live in the South, and two, you'll get tons of use out of it!

  19. Those brussel sprouts look so yummy! I am such a huge love but my hubby hates them so I only ever make them when he is out of town. That's so good to know abut the latest Target collaboration! I had no clue it was coming so I will definitely be on the look out! Thanks so much for sharing your favorite things with us!

  20. I'm glad I'm not the only one that isn't a fan of the Target/designer collaborations! They are always such a let down to me. I'm so happy January is over now if we can just fast forward through February I will be one happy girl!
