I’m so excited to share my favorite things from the month of January. Plus, I’m excited this means that January is over, and we’re one month closed to Daylight Savings, haha! I’m so ready for some more sunshine during the day! Here are my current favorite things.

fashion favorites

Bow Earrings

When I was Julia Engle post a $500 version of these bow earrings my heart cracked a little and I moved on. Two months later I found this dupe for $40! I reached for them often through January, and I have a feeling they will be on repeat this month too! I love my little bow details.

Pink Amazon Coat

Before Asheville I was hunting for an affordable Winter coat on sale. I almost ran out of time but Amazon Prime one day shipping had my back! This coat is really lightweight but surprisingly warm. It comes in neutral shades, but I couldn’t resist the pink! If you’re curious about what we did in Asheville, I rounded up our weekend iteniery here!

Bow sweater

I remember Club Monaco made a gorgeous bow back sweater similar to this one but it was over $350. I loved it so much I almost splurged on it, but I’m glad I never did because I found this one on sale! This sweater is selling fast, so if you’re thinking about it I wouldn’t wait!

Baubled Cream sweater

I didn’t expect to wear this sweater as much as I have the past month. I mean I’ve literally worn it every week in January. I actually sized way up to an XL because I wanted it to fit casually.

beauty favorites

eyelash extensions

I thought about trying eyelash extensions for two years. I was honestly just scared I would have a bad reaction or all my lashes would fall out! I finally decided to try them out at the end of November and I’m obsessed! I wrote a full review on them here and I shared the good/bad I’ve experienced so far.

Brow Definer

I mixed up my typical brow pencil for this one and ended up loving it more! It’s a thicker pencil so it makes the application quicker. I use the shade blonde.

CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution With 2% Salicylic Acid

This stuff has been a game changer for my acne. I plan to share an updated routine next week, but I would go ahead and order this so you don’t waste any time clearing up your skin!


lifestyle favorites


I’m not usually the type to want the latest technology, but for some reason I wanted to try these headphones out. They are actually super fancy and practical. I have the hardest time pairing my devices to bluetooth, so I  really haven’t reached for headphones often because I don’t want to deal. I love that I can just pop these in my ears whenever I want and they’re ready to go! I bought this silicone cover to help keep up with them a little better.

Day Designer planner

I always get excited over a new planner! I’ve enjoyed organizing my life with this planner. I also like to use my planner as a mini diary to keep up with how I’m feeling, track breakouts, and anything else I would like to remember!

Capri Blue candle

How am I just experiencing this popular candle in my home? I am not a huge fan of candle scents because they give me a headache, but this one makes my filming room smell amazing and I haven’t even burnt it yet!
