2017 has certainly gotten off to a good start for me! If January was any indication of how the rest of my year is going, then I cannot wait because this month was incredible!  Anyways, there were a lot of things I loved this month, many beauty favorites, as well as some other random bits and pieces.  So here are my January favorites!

My first and biggest favorite of the month is of course London.  Are you sick of hearing me talk about London yet? Because I certainly am not sick of talking about it yet!  I moved here in the middle of the month, and have been LOVING it.  Obviously it’s quite a big adjustment, and I am still getting used to everything, but so far everything here has been amazing!

Now for some of my beauty favorites, is the Becca Cosmetics Blush in the shade Flowerchild.  I got this for Christmas in the Blushed Radiance kit, and I am completely in love with it!  In the past I’ve never really been a huge fan of wearing blush, but recently I’ve started wearing it more and more.  This is just such a beautiful pink/coral shade with just a hint of shimmer in it.  

I’ve also been loving to apply my Flowerchild blush with the Elf powder brush.  I am a big fan of Elf brushes (and makeup in general) because they are so affordable, and such good quality, and this brush is no different – it’s amazing! It’s super soft and it blends out product so nicely.

My next favorite is the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox and Brighten Mask.  When I first got this mask I got this one and the Refine and Exfoliate masks, and initially I liked the Refine and Exfoliate mask better, but over the past month I have been using the Detox and Brightening mask, and I really have been loving it.  I feel like it really cleans out my skin, and and keeps it looking really fresh and clear. I still really enjoy the other mask as well, but this is the one that I have been using pretty much all month.

This month I have also been loving the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in the shade Chocoholic, which is a beautiful deep brown shade with a reddish undertone.  I have owned this lipstick for a few months now, and every single time I wear it I get compliments on it, because it is so pretty!  It is quite a bold shade, especially on me because I have such fair skin, but I still love the way it looks, and I wore it constantly this past month.

My last favorite for the month of January is the Kate Spade fitness tracker.  I got this for Christmas last month, and I have worn it almost every single day this month.  I have wanted to get a Fitbit for a while now, but I was just not sure if I would actually wear it, so when I got this Kate Spade version of the Fitbit, I literally couldn’t wait to wear it, because like everything Kate Spade does, this is so cute, and it even has little cat ears… I can’t handle it!  And since I moved into a big city, I’ve been walking so much more than I used to, so I really like that I can track how far I’ve been going.

      I know, they are so incredible! I’m seriously in love with them now!

  1. Loving the look of that blush! I was never really a blush person either until recently, and I think it totally changes your look and makes anything look more natural.

    Lovely post xx

      Thanks! 🙂 And that’s a great idea, I can definitely do that!

  3. I looooove Flowerchild! It’s one of my favourite blushes ever. I’ve never tried ELF brushes before, but I’m so tempted! Heard so many great things about their stippling brush 💗
