January Favorites 2015


Hello lovelies! 

I hope you all had a wonderful January! Last month I didn’t really discover a lot of NEW products, but I definitely did pick up things that I hadn’t used in a while. Check out my favorites below!


-Dandelion blush- Benefit Cosmetics

This blush is incredibly easy to blend, and it is a lovely natural color for my fair skin.

-NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

This concealer is a fantastic product. It is definitely more “up there” in price, but it works wonders so it’s worth it! This concealer not only brightens, but also evens and corrects. The one bad thing is it does tend to crease. Although, if you are careful to only apply what you need (a little goes a LONG way!) and blend it out, then you won’t have a problem!


-COMBO of Gimme Brow by Benefit and Brow Wiz by Anastasia

I love this combination! First of all, yes, the Brow Wiz is AWESOME by itself. Although, if you want some extra BAM in your brows, then using the Gimme Brow on top just makes your brows look especially fantastic.

-NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator

I had completely forgotten about this product in my drawer, but last month re-discovered it. And I can’t believe I forgot about it! This product is truly incredible. It highlights beautifully and adds a certain “wet” sheen to the skin. It is slightly pinky hued, but not too dark of a pink. You fair-skinned ladies can most likely relate… if a highlighter is TOO dark pink, it just makes you look like you don’t know where blusher goes. This highlighter is just the perfect shade! Plus it’s drugstore.. so it won’t hurt your wallet.

-Laura Mercier Palette

This is just a simply gorgeous palette. All of the shades are beautiful! These shadows are super buttery, easy to blend and stay on all day.


-Exuviance Vespera Bionic Serum

This serum is an anti-aging product, although I use it primarily for locking in moisture before I put on my moisturizer(I use the Daily Face Moisturizer by First Aid Beauty). Although I don’t use this product specifically for anti-aging purposes, it has faded my acne scars brightened my skin!

-Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent

This product has really helped to prevent breakouts, while clearing up existing breakouts. I was using the On-the-spot acne treatment by Neutrogena EVERYWHERE, but it tells you ON THE SPOT for a reason. Putting it all over was just way too drying. So now I use the astringent for areas, and then the Neutrogena treatment for spots only. Overall it’s a great and affordable astringent.


-3 Minute Miracle Moist- Aussie

This deep conditioner is so lovely. This leaves your hair feeling soft and silky, and leaves no residue. It also smells like coconut, so that’s a plus! This is just a lovely, not too pricey, simple deep conditioner. Whether you have brittle and dry hair, or just want to give your hair a treat, this product is truly rewarding!


-Over the ear headphones- Urbanears

These are wonderful good quality headphones! They work very well and the sound quality is very good. I am using them now as we speak! If you are looking for a pair of headphones to drown out the outside noise, then these are the headphones for you.

-Banana Nutmeg Bread Pudding candle- Bath & Body Works

Description: A scrumptious new spin on the traditional bread pudding recipe- creamy banana, freshly grated nutmeg and brown sugar are mixed into a sweet indulgence.

-Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut candle- Bath & Body Works

Description: Freshly grated cinnamon and sparkling sugar crystals meet freshly baked cake doughnut with a hint of vanilla bean extract in this delicious blend.


-Downton Abbey

-White Collar (on Netflix!)

-Psych (on Netflix!)
