I’m starting a new series on the blog… my Monthly Favorites! It will be on the last Friday of the month and I will show you all of my favorite things from the previous month! I’m excited to get started!
1. J.Crew Garnet Flame Plaid Shirt: I first saw this shirt in one
of SarahBelle’s videos and I immediately fell in love with it!
I’ve worn it soo much since it came in the mail. They may have
a few still in stock in local stores, but they’ve been sold out online
for a while now.
2 & 3. J.Crew Turtlenecks: Turtlenecks have been my go
to this winter since its been so freakin cold! Spring really
can not come fast enough this year. I love to layer these
turtlenecks since they’re so thin. They really keep your neck
warm, especially if you don’t want to wear a huge scarf.
They’re super cheap now too- I highly recommend!
4. Nars Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base:
HOLY GRAIL. This is by far hands down the best primer
around (and the only one I’ve ever tried…) I have REALLY
oily skin and I hated wearing eye shadow ’cause it would crease
within the hour of me putting it on and it would just look
bad. My co-worker introduced me to eye primer (’cause, lets
face it, I have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to
make up) and I have been OBSESSED ever since.
The last time I wore this stuff, I went 8 hours without
my eye shadow creasing- 8 HOURS! That’s pretty awesome
in my book!
If you have oily skin and a problem with creasing eye shadow
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this stuff! I got it for $20-25,
which yeah, is kinda pricy, but a little bit goes a long way, and
it’s the most miraculous product I’ve ever used. Now after a
review like that, how can you not go check it out?!
5. Julep Cleopatra: A matte black nail polish.
It seriously looks amazing on! My only complaint
is that it loses its matte finish after a few days. I usually keep
my nail polish on for 5-7 days and it starts to get shiny
by day 3 or 4. If you’re someone who changes their nail
polish like you change your underwear
(which I would hope would be everyday…) then
you wouldn’t have this problem. The color is super
rich and the coverage is great (with 2 coats), it looks
like satin on your nails- AH-mazing.
6. Nordstrom Utility Vest: If you’ve been following
this little blog of mine, you know that I am OBSESSED
with this vest! Although I got mine for Christmas
(Thanks Boyfriend!!) I know it will transition very
well to spring and even summer! Can’t wait to ear this
puppy all year round! They’re sold out of this one online
and I do not know if stores still carry it but there are a
few similar options HERE & HERE.
7. Kettle Corn: Random food item. Every single
night after dinner I have a heaping bowl of
this stuff. Everyday I pretty much look forward
to finishing dinner so I can have some.
Nutritionally speaking, it’s just sugar coated
popcorn, I think theres something like 7 grams
of sugar per cup serving (don’t quote me)
which really isn’t that bad.
I can’t see getting sick of it anytime soon!
8. Pave Link Bracelet: I know I’m kinda late
to the bandwagon on this one, but I’m so glad
I purchased this bracelet! When I got it in the
mail I couldn’t believe how sparkly it was! Pictures
really don’t do it justice, ya gotta see the sparklie
s in person- which means ya gotta buy the bracelet 😉
9. Linley Bracelet: Gah! Another sparkler!
I’ve seriously worn this baby non stop since
Mindy Mae’s Market sent it over!
It goes with everything and it’s just perfect.
The quality is phenomenal and its just so pretty!
10 & 11. Nyx Butter Gloss (Eclair & Devils Food Cake):
So I was never really a big make up girl, but I’m getting
more into it! I’ve seen a bunch of amazing reviews
on YouTube for Nyx Butter Gloss, so I ordered from
Ulta when they were buy one get one half off (i think).
I tried them for the first time the other day and
I can see why everyone gave them such rave reviews!
Super soft on your lips and they smell SO good!
I ordered the darkest color (devils food cake)
’cause, well, why not- YOLO! (don’t worry I’ll never
do that again…) and the lighter shade (eclair) which
reminds me of a nude-ish color, and I’ve been on
the hunt for a good light gloss. I really love them.
Definitely try them out if you get the chance!
12. Fleece Lined Leggins: What can I say that
I haven’t already said about the most comfortable
leggings n the whole wide world.
I got mine at jane.com and I jusr ordered
2 more pairs from Groopdealz, so if thats
any indication of how much I love them…
I wear them all the time, but I’m kind of getting
sick of washing them every-other-day just so I
can wear them again (hence my reason for re-buying!)
SIMILAR HERE, HERE, HERE, & HERE.
13. Naturalizer ‘Jersey’ Boot: Worn these
almost everyday, as I’m sure you’ve noticed
#sorrynotsorry 🙂 They fit my calves perfectly in
skinny jeans and in leggings, and they’re warmer
than I was expecting! They’re also super comfy,
and I think you can get them in the Naturalizer
outlets if your close to one for cheap!
14. Cover Girl 3 in 1 Stay Fabulous Foundation:
Best drugstore foundation around. Has amazing
coverage (you still need to use spot treatment
on blemishes though) and does not get cakey.
I’ve been using this for the past couple
of weeks and I dont break out from it – which
is awesome- and I love the way it looks on my skin!
If your on the market for a new foundation
I HIGHLY recommend this one,
especially if you don’t want to break the bank!
15. J.Crew Jeweled Sweatshirt: It’s cold, folks, and
what’s better when it’s cold than wearing a sweatshirt?
Oh you can’t wear sweatshirts to work? Problem solved!
A jeweled sweatshirt is perfect for the office (I’ve only
worn mine to work so far) ! I love the colors of the
jewels in this one, AND it’s still available online!
What are you favorites this month??
