February Favorites

February. Only 28 days long but filled with plenty of my favorite things. Here are the Top 3.

3. My guilty pleasure: YouTube makeup tutorials. I’m trying to do a better job about saving money and these prove you don’t need to waste a ton of cash on high end makeup! In fact, most of the drugstore brands are BETTER than the expensive stuff.


2. Dr. Oz’s Two-Week Rapid Weight Loss Plan – The entire Fitz in the Morning team decided to give this a shot after we interviewed the man himself, Dr. Oz. In five days I lost five pounds! Check out my Stuffed Red Pepper recipe HERE for inspiration. Please comment with your favorite recipes, too!

1. If you’re in the Great Northwest, we started this month off with a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. The Seattle Seahawks are Super Bowl CHAMPIONS! Anyone and everyone can go to a major retail chain and pick up the same champion shirt. Personally I prefer unique gear and supporting small businesses like Fresh Brewed Tees.
