Monthly Favorites: January 2014

    Monthly Favorites: January 2014

    Whaaaaaat, my first favorites post?!! Yes, yes, for the new year, I have decided to start making monthly favorites videos. I feel that I’m at a point in my blogging career where I’m trying enough new products regularly to compile these types of posts. Plus, they’re a little more convenient than “Empties” posts because I hate hoarding my trash…

    Anyway, on to my favorite beauty products of the new year thus far!

    Products Mentioned:

    • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup
    • Neutrogena On The Spot Acne Treatment
    • NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Blue Rose [Review]
    • Wet n Wild ColorIcon 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Tunnel Vision
    • Nubar Cuticle Oil [$7.40 on Amazon]
    • bareMinerals Eyeshadow in Pure Spice [$8 on Amazon]

    Non-Beauty Favorites

    Along with beauty favorites, I hope you don’t mind if I share a couple non-beauty favorites in these monthly posts as well!


    I’ve been obsessed with wax melts and fragrance oils. They are so much more fragrant than any candle I own. My friend Jessica got me this gorgeous burner for Christmas, shaped like an elephant with an opening to hold a tea candle. I’ve been burning The Body Shop fragrance oils in Cranberry Joy and Vanilla Bliss, which were both on clearance for $2 after the holidays. My favorite product to fragrance my home with, though, has been the Roasted Espresso Drizzle Melts from Swan Creek Candle Company. They’re super cheap; only $6 for a whole package. I’ve been burning the same half of a section almost every day for the past month, and it’s still not finished! These fill a large room quickly with the most delicious caramel coffee scent.


    I’ve finally jumped on the New Girl bandwagon. When the show first started, I couldn’t get into it to save my life. I tried watching the pilot 3 times and still had no intention of following the series. But after watching a few episodes mid-season with my mom, I got hooked and am now binging on Netflix. I’m reluctant to say Schmidt is my favorite, and I totally ship Jess & Nick (I’M ONLY STARTING SEASON TWO SO DON’T SPOIL ANYTHING FOR ME!).

    What have you been enjoying most this month?



    1. It’s so funny because there are so many people loving the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation lately. Today must be Neutrogena day.

    2. I feel like everyone loves Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation but I just can’t get on board with it. They don’t sell a great match for me. It comes off as really orange.

    3. Those caramel-coffee melts sound wonderful, it’s exactly the type of scent I love to have around my house. I really feel like my apartment always has to smell like food, somehow it makes it feel more cozy 🙂
