January Faves

January both flew by and moved slowly, which just doesn’t seem possible. It feels like the month just started, yet New Year’s Day was so long ago. As I settle into blogging on the regular, I’ve decided to start a “monthly favorites” series. It is a classic post that documents one’s favorite things each month. I’m excited to share what I’ve been into this January.


IT Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Veil Primer

I was lucky enough to start the year off with a few new beauty products, several of which I’ve been loving enough to consider favorites. First is the IT Cosmetics Primer, which I basically hi-jacked from my mom. It works as both a moisturizer and primer, though I usually put on a bit of moisturizer beneath it as my skin is very dry. I love how long-lasting my makeup becomes with the primer underneath. It makes my foundation look so much more natural. Plus, it smells like orange creamsicle.

NYX Epic Ink Liner

Another beauty favorite of mine has been the NYX Epic Ink Liner. With its brush tip, it goes on smoothly and creates sharp lines. In the month that I’ve been using it, it shows no signs of drying up at all. The only issue I have with it is that the ink tends to bubble up on the outside when it’s stored on its side. Other than that, I’ve really enjoyed playing with this liner and will definitely repurchase it in the future.

Wet n Wild Crease Brush

My final beauty fave came as a Christmas gift from my sister. Wet n Wild’s crease brush is the best blending brush I’ve ever used. Compared to some of the other, higher-end blending brushes I have, this one does the best job packing on and blending out eyeshadow. For a only a dollar, this brush is incredible.

With the new year came a small goal of expanding my music horizons. Each month I plan on exploring a few new-to-me artists, and this month I was not disappointed with my discoveries. I decided to look into the artist MØ, after hearing a couple of her more popular songs on the radio. Her electropop sound is upbeat and powerful, perfect for dancing to in the shower and singing to in car. A couple of my favorite songs by her are “Pilgrim”, “Kamikaze,” and “New Years Eve.”

Wild Belle

I came across Wild Belle while watching a thrifting video on YouTube. The duo’s sound is a little bit reggae, a little bit folksy, and a little bit alternative. The story their music paints is reminiscent of Lana Del Rey, but they definitely have an original sound that is distinctly theirs. I’ve been loving their first album, “Isles”, a whole lot.

Steve Madden Black Chelsea Boots

Not realizing that they were Steve Madden brand, I picked up these boots at the thrift store for $8. I had been searching for some basic black boots for months, so they were a super amazing find that I have been wearing almost constantly. I love how comfy and stylish they are- a true essential to my wardrobe


The Decaf Doer’s Playbook

As I delve further into blogging, fashion, and business, there are so many resources that have been helping me out a lot, but none compare to the Decaf Doer’s Playbook. It is an online course run by Marissa Pane’, for anxious but ambitious entrepreneurs. It combines spirituality, self-help and business strategy, making it an incredible resource for anyone looking to improve not only their business but their life. The first journal prompt literally changed my life, no exaggeration.

The Fashion Hags Podcast

Okay, so I’m only on the third episode of this podcast, but I have been absolutely loving it. Not only is it an insight into the fashion world, but its three hosts are honest and entertaining. It has been perfect to listen to while I do the things in life that I don’t want to do- like wash the dishes and shower.


That concludes my favorites for the month! I’m excited to be adding this series to my blog, and I hope you enjoy it. I would love to know what your fashion fave of the month has been. Feel free to leave a comment!
