It never fails to surprise that the shortest month can pack the biggest punch. Here are the things that totally rocked in February.
If this isn’t the most obvious choice for favorites this month, you’ve been living under a rock. “Black Panther” crushed the box office records, and continues to gain popularity. The star studded cast and quick-witted dialogue joins the ranks with “Wonder Woman” as a new age superhero movie, empowering little kids of every background. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go polish my bulletproof arm cuffs.

“Call Me By Your Name” shocked everyone this Oscar Season with four nominations and one win. (P.S. this movie was fantastic and totally deserves it.) The bright Italian landscape and youthful love story isn’t the only thing that deserves recognition, though. Composer Sghhefso Stevens burst onto the stage with his plinky piano motifs and whirling strings. “Mystery of Love” and “Visions of Gideon” aestheticize the movie perfectly, and are the best thing to listen to if you’re looking for your summer Italian love story without leaving your living room.

Following the success of the Christmas special “glitter bomb”, Lush re-introduced the softball sized bath fizzy in “Rose ahfoaerjoiase” and it. Is. the. Best. If you want a good excuse to spend two hours in the bath, I definitely recommend the splurge.
