Hey there dazzlers! Welcome to my very first favorites of the month! I was debating over whether or not I should even start posting monthly favorites because I really didn’t purchase much of anything in January. I was still recovering from the holidays and quite frankly the last thing that I wanted to do is go shopping! Which is quite unusual for me!
Anyway, I decided to go along with it because I did receive a few items for Christmas that I have been loving!!
VIKTOR & ROLF Flowerbomb
My boyfriend gave me this perfume for Christmas and ever since I can’t stop wearing it! It has become one of my favorite scents! The keynotes in this scent are jasmine, orange blossom, and patchouli. It also has a sweetness to it and is noticeable without being overwhelming. I also noticed that it lasts pretty much all day!
Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Lash Extension Mascara
I am always trying out new mascaras in hopes of finding the perfect one! While this may not be the miracle that I am always hoping for I have been enjoying it! I have been impressed with the quality of Essence mascaras. And the fact that they are so inexpensive is a plus! Where else are you going to find a mascara that works for less than $5? What I like about this mascara is that it does a good job of coating your lashes and separating them so they don’t end up goopy. The thin brush also makes it convenient to reach smaller lashes and the lower lash line.
Tarte and Real Techniques Make Brush Sets
This was another gift that I received for Christmas! This time it was from my makeup brush addicted mom! Seriously, she has so many brushes and she uses them all! I actually think that these brushes were limited edition so they aren’t’ selling these exact ones anymore. But in any case, Tarte and Real Techniques make some amazing makeup brushes. Have you seen the new sparkly ones by Tarte? OMG, they are so gorgeous!
Acne Master Pimple Patch
These patches are so good that I would go as far as to say they are life changing! If you have a pimple and just want it to go away fast then this is what you need. After cleansing your face you take off one of the little patches and place it on the pimple. Leave it there for about 15 minutes and it will suck the pus right out! It’s sooo gross I know! But it helps to get rid of that pesky pimple faster and without the irritation that popping or picking at it can have. I always have these in my bathroom closet just in case. You can get them on Amazon or you can even purchase them at Urban Outfitters!
Honest Cream Blush in Truly Teasing
I love the Honest Company for the fact that their products are free of parabens, silicones and other nasty chemicals. And what I love even more than that is the quality of this blush! Finding a cream blush that is easy to apply can be a challenge but this one is perfect! I find that this cream blush works really well with my dry skin and that it lasts nearly all day without streaking! I am also a big fan of the neutral shade. I find that it works well with many different eyeshadow and lip colors.
Blanket Scarf from Ily Mix
I know that I already did a post about this but I seriously can’t stop wearing this cozy blanket scarf I purchased from IlyMix! The weather has been so up and down here lately that I am always layering my clothing and you can’t get any easier than layering with a blanket scarf! Click here to read the full post!
Earrings from World Market
Did you know that World Market sells really cool fashion accessories? Whenever I step inside a World Market I head right over to the fashion section! I recently picked up these really cool gold spiky hoops. I have been wearing them with everything lately! You can see them in my Swap.com post!

Bloom Daily Planner
I posted this pretty little planner on Instagram a few weeks ago and I have been using every day since! I love the portability of this planner and the fact that it has enough space to write your goals and to do list every month!
Sooo I know that I am a little late to the party but I just started watching Stranger Things. Everyone from my nieces to my parents and people at work has been saying how good it is and now I am addicted! I started watching last week and now I’m almost done with season 2! That may not sound so crazy but aside from Game of Thrones I don’t watch much T.V. I probably watch more YouTube videos than anything! Have you guys seen it yet? I would love to know what you think!
What have been your favorite products, T.V. shows, books, etc from January? I’d love to know so I can add them to the list of things that I wanna try!
