January Favorites

Friday, January 30, 2015

January seemed to fly by ridiculously fast. I don't know how it happened. One minute, it was my birthday and the next, I'm seeing Valentine's Day decor everywhere! I can't say I mind, since I love Valentine's Day, but woah did it get here quick. Here are some of my absolute favorites from the month of January!
Essie 'Comfy in Cashmere' - I love when Essie comes out with new polishes. I get so excited to run to my local Walgreens and check them out and I was definitely not disappointed. My favorite of the lot has to be 'Comfy Cashmere'. Essie describes the color as mauve with deep velvet undertones, but I think my absolute favorite part is the way it subtly shimmers. 
Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm - I can't say this eye balm will work for everyone, but it definitely works for me! Several months ago, I got a deluxe sample of this eye balm from Sephora. I didn't think much of it when I first put it on since I had tried so many that hadn't worked and I can't say I noticed a change right away. I noticed the change gradually over weeks and couldn't believe how much this product lightened the dark circles under my eyes. It's definitely a bit pricy, but if you can afford the splurge and dark circles under your eyes is a big woe for you, definitely check out this eye balm. 
Kate Spade Patent Aster - If you read my blog earlier this week, you know that lately I have been totally obsessed with mini purses. Those tiny purses that can only carry the absolute essentials because I think we tend to carry way more items than we need and we regret the strain it puts on our shoulders! I have been alternating between this Kate Spade Aster purse and Kate Spade Mini Maise purse for all my quick outings. It's Kate Spade so it looks good with everything and I think my shoulder is very thankful for the rest. 
Divergent Book Series - I watched the movie Divergent last weekend and I was completely hooked. I immediately hopped over to Amazon and bought the complete boxed set. I've halfway through the last book and I even bought the little side book, Four. It's totally adducing. It's basically a dystopian love story with some bad ass fighting and motifs of finding your place in the world and standing up for what's right. Safe to say, it's become one of my absolute favorites. If you have any other suggestions for books like this, I am all ears!
Sugar Paper Valentine's Day Cards - Valentine's Day is coming quickly and I have totally been planning ahead! I got a bunch of the most adorable Valentine's Day cards from Sugar Paper, my new favorite online stationary shop. They have so many different ones to choose from that I was able to pick out individual cards for each of my loved ones. I can't wait to pop them off in the mail! If you are looking for holiday cards, this is seriously the best place to go!

What wee some of your favorites this month? Share with me in the comments below!

  9. I read all three Divergent books in less than a week! I loved the first one, kinda liked the second one, and HATED the third one...NO spoilers but I went into a small depression once I finished it! I'd love to hear how you liked it when you finish!
