January quickly zoomed past me as I endured the hustle of my daily grind after New Years and continued to work on side projects while sneaking in a nap or two when I get the chance. It’s been such a great start to the new year and I’m so excited for what’s to come!
To reflect upon my month, I thought I’d share my January Favorites for 2016!
Glossier Priming Moisturizer: I am beyond in love with this moisturizer! It’s the perfect way to begin my makeup routine at the start of the day and end my skin care routine in the evening. It’s extremely hydrating and works so well for my sensitive skin. I was able to try the whole Phase 1 Set here, so if you haven’t checked that out yet, please do!
Sephora Bright Future Concealer in Custard: I’ve heard this concealer is comparable to the NARS Creamy Concealer, but I can’t vouch for it. But I do really enjoy this concealer in particular! I use it under my eyes and for certain spots and blemishes that have discoloration. The only thing I’m not a big fan of is the applicator itself. The product itself is only on the tip, but if it was a traditional doe-foot applicator I wouldn’t mind. The formula is extremely smooth and a great combination between thick and creamy. Def a fave for my tired and puffy under eyes!
Kat Von D Lolita II: Kat Von D released a new version of the cult favorite, Lolita. I was able to grab the duo pack during the holidays that had both Lolita and Lolita II. Of the two, my favorite has definitely been Lolita II. It’s a beautiful warm peachy nude that looks great for any occasion! I’m seriously obsessed!
BECCA Champagne Pop Highlighter Trio: Can we talk about how amazing Champagne Pop is?! Like seriously. Jaclyn Hill teamed up with BECCA cosmetics to create the forever coveted highlighter shade Champagne Pop and completely nailed it! When BECCA released this trio that has two other shades, I knew I had to have it. I have used the lighter shade, Pearl, to add a little bit more shine especially in the inner corners of my eyes and and sometimes I use both Champagne Pop and Pearl together on my cheek bones!
G-Eazy When It’s Dark Out: G-Eazy released his latest album, When It’s Dark Out this past December and it’s pretty much been on repeat ever since. I’m beyond stoked because I’ll get to be seeing him next Tuesday at The Shrine in LA! I’ve followed his music for a few years now and it’s incredible seeing his journey with music! Definitely one person I’d love to sit down and have coffee with.
Fitmo App: Fitmo is an awesome app I was able to try that helped me up my fitness game this past month. It’s basically having a personal trainer in your pocket! Once you sign up, you get to pick your personal trainer and communicate with them daily. The personal trainers will then look at what your schedule is like and give you a set of workouts (that are all SO easy! Thank goodness!) that you can do anywhere and anytime. Definitely worth the try and checking out if you’re someone like me who doesn’t have a set routine but wants to start working out!
Passion Planner: You should all know by now that I’m a HUGE fan of the Passion Planner! Angelia created this product with dreamers in mind, and I love using mine to not only reflect on my day, but plan my projects and ideas as well. I use it on a day to day basis and a few of my favorite things happen to be the inspirational quote to start the week and the calls to action. I’ve been able to reconnect with some awesome people and feel inspired just by this nifty tool! And let’s not forget how beautiful the #StayGOALden edition is!
What are some of your favorite things for the month of January?
