January 2017 Favorites

Hey guys,

Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a great weekend! I went worked most of the weekend and then I also went to Disney on Saturday so that was fun! I'll be doing a post on my day trip to disney soon! 

So I decided to start doing Monthly Favorites again this year. I like doing them, plus it gives you guys a chance to try new things that I maybe recommend and liked.

This is a new Amazon Original and I have fallen in love with it. Christina Ricci is an amazing actress and this show is very addictive. I already can't wait for season 2 (which they haven't even announced because the show just came out on the 27th so it's way too soon). However, this show can only be watched if you have Amazon Prime or Amazon Video. I totally recommend getting Prime because it's only $99 a year ($8.25 a month which is around the same price as Hulu and Netflix but you get more for your money) and it comes with free 2-day shipping, Prime Video, Prime Music, Amazon Photos and so much more! If you would like to sign up, you can do so here. If you already have Amazon Prime, then I totally recommend watching this show and I seriously hope they get a second season.

My sister gave me marble coasters for Christmas and I absolutely love them. I have recently fallen in love with all things marble and I am constantly searching for new things to add to the house that are made out of marble. Plus, my bedroom furniture is mirrored and so I need coasters so I can have drinks in my room and these work perfectly and totally go with my room! 

These aren't the exact coasters that my sister bought me but they are very similar. Mine just don't have the copper colored diagonal stripe.

3) Real Techniques Makeup Brushes - The makeup brush on the left 

So this makeup brush set is great but I prefer to use the one on the left. The one on the right in my set must have been a dud because every time I go to use it or wash it, all of the hairs fall out and eventually there won't be any left haha. But I love using the one on the left for my crease color because it's so big and it helps to create a more dramatic, full look. Plus this set is only $8 and can be purchased at Ulta which is a great price and deal!

I love Lily Collins! She's a great actress and I first discovered in Shadow Hunters: The Immortal Instruments which didn't do too well as a movie but I really liked her as an actress. And of course, who doesn't love Sam Claflin?! They're a both so great in this movie. I had been dying to see it since it came out but I didn't feel like buying it without seeing it and I'm pretty sure it never went to theaters (but I could be wrong). However, they put it on Amazon Prime and so I was finally able to watch it. It has it's good moments and it's bad moments and there are parts where you are like "Are you serious?" and then by the end you are pretty happy haha. 

So I have never really been a big fan of leggings. I'm not entirely sure why but I am trying it out. I  recently wore a pair to Disney so I could test it out for real. I didn't really like it but I think my main issue is that I don't have enough tops that I can wear with leggings. I'm still not a huge fan of the whole leggings as pants trend. I prefer to make sure that my butt isn't showing and I don't really own a lot of shirts that are long enough to cover my butt and still short enough to not be considered a dress. I have plenty of sweaters that are long enough but there might be times where I don't need to wear a sweater, I might need to wear a short sleeve shirt because it's so hot outside. 

I think once I find some shirts that are long enough then I will get into the trend more. My other issue is that I really prefer to wear dresses and shorts. I'm okay with showing off my legs and to me wearing those two items are more comfortable. They're more freeing haha!

I absolutely love Taylor Swift and so automatically this is the best song (only until she comes out with something new haha) but I have been listening to it non-stop and the music video was pretty good as well. It was kind of depressing but still interesting!

Right now, this is my favorite mascara, I have been using it pretty much everyday this month and I recommend it to everyone who asks me about my lashes. I love everything about this mascara. I love the brand, the color, the formula, the brush, and the packaging. It's such a great mascara and if you want to try it but don't want to pay full price then they sell travel version as well that will last you a long time.

These are seriously the best things that Trader Joe's sells! I promise you, you will not regret buying these. We bought them for a friend recently and she had to go back and get more because she fell in love with them. And she actually taught us that you can put them in the microwave for a few seconds and make them into a really s'more where the chocolate is a little melted and the marshmallow is all fluffy!

I absolutly love my new bedding that my mom bought me! It's so cute and it goes perfectly with my theme. I also love the pops of pale pink that are on it. It's also reversible which I love because it's like you're getting two bedspreads for the price of one! 

I found this shampoo at Target (I'm sure they sell it other places as well) and considering I dye my hair, I should be buying more expensive shampoo but I just never got into that whole thing. I have such oily hair that I have to wash it every night and I also have a lot of hair which is why I wash it every night. It takes forever to dry and I don't like to blow dry it unless I'm in a hurry. I try to use the least amount of heat on my hair as possible because going back to the whole oily thing, if I use like any product (heat protectant) whatsoever then my hair gets so oily so quickly. I'm not lying or over exaggerating, I promise. I have even done the whole train your hair thing where you don't wash your hair for a while thing and then wash it and then don't wash it for a while and just keep repeating that and it never worked for me. My hair was still just as oily and so eventually it just because too gross for me and so I had to go back to washing my hair every night again. 

But I love this shampoo because it makes my hair so soft and it's also smells really good. Every morning, I smell something really good and then I realize it's my hair and I'm like "Whoa! My hair smells really good!"

Thanks for stopping by!
