January Favorites

February 8, 2017

Hi friends!

I hope you're all doing well. 😊 School is back in full swing and I feel like I'm SO busy. I have so much work for each class that I wasn't even sure I'd get the time to write this (umm who told my French literature professor it was okay to assign over 100 pages of reading for the next class). I actually sacrificed my nap time to write this blog post, so please keep your thoughts and prayers with my family and myself at this difficult time.

Here are some things I've loved in the month of January:

1. How to be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits
Seriously the cutest, cheekiest book I've read as of lately (says the girl who calls everything cute and cheeky). The book offers tips from real Parisians on things such as how to dress, throw a dinner party, raise children, and even actual French recipes. I felt like I was in Paris with a glass of Pinot Noir every time I  picked up this book.

2. Black Mock Neck Sweater
I feel like I'm married to the color black and am having an affair with anything turtle/mock neck related. So what more could I ask for when you combine the two? I got my black mock neck from a thrift store for around $6, but this one from H&M looks so cozy!

3. One Potato Two Potato Seaside Salt'n Vinegar
Salt and vinegar chips are some of my favorite chips, so I was surprised when I realized I had never tried out this brand's before. I always saw them while in line for Starbucks but never actually tried them until my best friend Nicki came to visit me. She bought a bag and let me try some of hers, and needless to say I was blown away. Seriously the best S&V chips I've ever had. They're not too salty, not too vinegary, and even have a hint of sweetness.

4. Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer
I first tried this out after I received it in a little Christmas gift box from my sister. I'm an oily gal at heart unfortunately and constantly have shine on my forehead. This primer not only helps to make my skin matte, but I feel like it makes my foundation look great as well. I like wearing this over my daily moisturizer when I don't wear makeup.

5. Nike Air Force 1's
Santa was nice enough to bring me a pair of shoes I've literally been eyeing for two years now. I seriously can't believe that this is the first pair that I have owned! I mean, I've only known the song word for word since I was 5🙄. They're seriously the most comfortable pair of shoes I own, even over my New Balances. I often pair them with my black mock neck and some cropped or cuffed jeans on warmer days (by warmer I also mean the upper 40's).

What have you been loving in the month of January?

Ciao for now!
