January Favorites


The first favorites of 2014!! How exciting! It is also almost my 1 year blog-iversary. Time flies when you’re blogging! January was a good month for new favorites, which gives me lots of hope for the new year.

Every month I discover a new product or two, but some of my favorites are ones that I had around and found a new love for. It is always great discovering great products in your own stash! Do you ever do that? Alrighty, lets get into these products…


Dior Lip Glow– I couldn’t believe I was actually doing it when I pressed ‘Submit Order’ on a $31 lip balm. But I did it. And things have been great. The Dior Lip Glow goes on clear, but turns to a sheer pink glow on the lips based on your skin’s pH. It is very moisturizing, and gives my lips the perfect bit of color. I love keeping this in my purse for on the go use.

Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Chihuahua Bite- One of the few times I let a counter girl convince me too buy something, was with this lip gloss. Once I got home I was a little apprehensive, it is very, very pink. Every once in a while I would slap this on, and every time I grew to love it more. This past month, it hasn’t left my hang bag. The color is very bright, but sheer, so it isn’t too crazy. With a little bright blush and a neutral eye, I love the whole look!

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Fresh– My first dry shampoo! I wasn’t sure this was something I’d ever need, but my mom was willing to buy me a few things during a shopping trip, so I added this too the cart. First off, I really love the smell, it is so FRESH. I find it really invigorating. My hair naturally has a lot of volume, but after an 8 hour work day, it can tend to get a little flat. If I am going out at night, I love to spray a bit of Batiste to freshen my look.


Laura Mercier Mineral Powder Foundation– I did a full review of the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder a few weeks back, so click the link for more info. I’ve been wearing this foundation on and off all month. When I have to get ready quick, this is my go too. It is easy, and covers well, so I don’t have to do too much other work. I just wish I had gotten one shade lighter for my pale winter skin.


Nature’s Way Coconut Oil– I have finally dived into the world of Coconut Oil. I love it on my hair, my skin, and even in my eggs! This is one of the most versatile products I’ve ever used. It is so moisturizing, so I love it to hydrate my dry hair. It works at a make up remover and moisturizer as well!! Lately, I have been experimenting more with cooking with it. It is full of nutrients and such, much better than butter. I’ve used it in eggs, popcorn, and sautéing vegetables.

Bath and Body Works Energy Scrub- This was actually a stocking stuffer on my boyfriend’s Christmas. I figured I’d give it a whirl to see how it was…and it’s awesome. First of all, the scrub aspect. The scrubby bits are just abrasive enough for the body that you can really tell it is working. It feels so good after a long week to scrub my body down. The ‘Energy’ scent is orange and ginger, which is so invigorating. Not too sweet, not too spicy…I think I need a candle this scent!

  1. I am completely intrigued about the coconut oil! I’d love to see a post of all the different uses (including food related) that you get out of coconut oil; purdy please! 🙂
