January 2017 Favorites


I can get easily distracted, especially by new things. Here a few of items that caught my attention this month:

This Blog: Kind of a no-brainier. I started this blog this month, so of course it has been one of my favorite things. I have enjoyed writing it tremendously so far. Having an outlet for my creativity has inspired and helped me so much. I recommend anybody who is on the fence about starting something like this, to do it. It is nerve racking putting yourself out there, but the positivity and support I have gotten has warmed my heart, and I believe it would do the same for any of you!

“Blame it on NARS” cheek palette: All in one face kits have been my savior this month. Since I am so lazy, ( I wonder how many times I have said that already, somebody keep a running tally for me?) having one palette with majority of the products I need makes it a go-to. The bronzer is a beautiful shade for warming up the face, but it is too intense & warm for contouring. The highlighter is natural and leaves you looking healthy and glowing. Between the two blushes, “Day Dream” the peach-y tone with slight shimmer has been the staple for my flush. All the colors are pigmented, blend well and take the guess work out of getting ready. They are all warm toned, so if that color scheme isn’t your jam, this palette may not be for you. My favorite part of this product? The mini “Ita” kabuki brush, a cult favorite from Nars’ line. I use this with the bronzer to add some color back to my face and with  other palettes for a sharp contour. The bristles unique shape is perfect for multitasking.

Braided Bun: I have never been good doing my hair. Yes, I know, I am losing my credibility more and more by the minute. When I am getting ready, I enjoy spending more time on my makeup rather than my hair. That all changed when I found this hairstyle. After searching on Pinterest, of course, I stumbled across the Braided Bun. Finally a style I can re-create in MINIMAL time with almost NO effort. Seriously, if I can do it, anybody can! Put your hair into a high ponytail, the higher the better! Take the ponytail, divide into two sections. Then braid each sections. Take the two braids and wrap around each other until a bun is formed. Secure with a hair tie that matches your hair color. This bun looks unique, you will be keeping you hair out of your face & the style will stay all day. You will trick people into thinking that you have your life together with this hairstyle.

Black Furry Cross-body: It has been all about accessories for me lately. The second I saw this purse, I knew I had to have it. After finally getting my butt out for shopping for spring clothing, I saw this bad boy! I love the fact that the purse has gold hardware, sits at a good length on my body & is black. All these attributes make it very wearable for day to day. The best part though is the fur. I LOVE THE FUR, it makes this piece unexpected and fun. Be warned though, you will want to pet it all day. With a purse like this, heads are sure to turn. Unfortunately this one is out of stock, but there are a lot of similar ones out there for you to pick up.

These were the items that got me through January.What are your favorite products from this month?
