February Highlights

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Saying goodbye to a month is always sad for me (cue "where has the time gone!!!" moments of PANIC), so in order to cheer myself up, I decided to compile some of my favorite things that happened this February into a "month in review" type post! Hope this isn't boring to you guys and let me know your own highlights for the month in the comments! ♡

Valentine's Day - conversation hearts, surprise valentine from Marlena, pen pal letter, heart garland, & valentine from Sarah, & me holding a huge heart wreath - as one does

Being drawn by the unbelievably talented Michelle, interviewed by the impeccably dressed October from October Rebel, and featured on Micaela Hoo's blog!

Getting back into illustrating and completing commissions for Powder Doom and City Girl Slim

Receiving the most incredible parcel ever from Marlena

Exploring my new town and eating some truly wonderful food - bacon cheeseburger and fries, raspberry sorbet, shamrock shake, & taco pizza

And I was particularly happy with this month's batch of outfit posts! To review: Rose Garden, Liquorice, and Bubblegum

Other Highlights:
- Going to the movies with my friend Kayla and having an Adventure Time marathon at her house
- Receiving such thoughtful/encouraging emails and comments from you guys - seriously the best!

What are you looking forward to in March?



  1. Such a lovely post:) I adore the pictures ! It looks like February was a pretty good month for you, I'm happy about that <3


  2. The sweetest little post doll; love all your outfits, the illustrations (and that drawing of you, wow!) are super cute and its fab that you have a pen pal :) xxx

  7. Aw, thanks for the compliment! I heart your hairstyle so much in the first photo. I'm not sure if it reminds me of a blond Bettie Paige or an animated princess more but either way I love it!!!

    - October

  8. Aghhhhh your hair <3


  9. What a lovely post <3 I love each photo :) You are such a cuttie pie :) !
    Aw, be my penpal too :) I love writting letters :).
    And please, stop being so lovely <3 hah

  10. I have to admit that I'm glad this month is over. February is always a tough month living in the Northeast as it's the heart of winter. I'm excited for the upcoming change of season.

  11. Wow so cool seeing how your month went by as mine went by just laying down and catching up on movies and tv shows, now its back to school time! :)

  12. oh, red is your perfect color! i normally am not a huge fan of it, but you look wonderful in it!

  14. You have had an amazing month, Kailey!
    Your outfit posts are stunning and you have so many adorable goodies.
    Next month is VERY jam packed for me so I cannot wait!


  15. You're such a doll!! Truly, in that first picture you look like a 1960s Barbie; your hair is just fabulous. Your February looks magical; Happy March!

  16. Cute post, the Valentine's pictures are so sweet! Looks like you had a great month.

  18. hi kailey! we mutually follow each other on instagram - there i'm "n3bulaprinc3". just wanna say i adore you and your blog!

    i'm sad to see february go, too - a sweeter, kitschy-er month there has never been. i'm gonna miss all the pastel pink and stark red and the valentines, but i will not miss the cold at all! eh heh. i'm really anticipating march myself, i have a lot of things planned in my life!

    your february was fabulous, as evidenced in your farewell february post. my february? not as fabulous, but i had some great highlights too! i had a date with my boyfriend that ended in us kissing (for the first time! we've been together almost a year!) in his driveway under falling snow. then, about four or five days later, he asked me to accompany him to a jeff mangum concert, which was fantastic. also, i watched a fantastic series for the first time, and besides that, i had a nice month full of laughter, silliness, and fun!

    (apologies, my own blog is bare as bones! i've always wanted to start ~fashion blogging~ but of course, i'm without a good camera! oh well. i'll make it work, someday!)

  19. Everything about this is just lovely! March will be fun too!

  20. What a month it's been for you, Kailey! Wow! Hope it keeps getting better. :)

  21. Kailey, I LOVE your photos with that heart garland! SOOOOO gorge!
