First Favorites of the year! I can't believe the first month of 2017 is already gone! In the true spirit of January, (aka: get your life together month) this month has been all about healthy habits, fresh new scents, makeup, and the one book that I've been devouring page by page, and recommending to anyone who will listen!
Besides having the prettiest bottles, Jo Malone perfumes all have gorgeous smells, and I finally picked one to make a "signature scent". My top three we're Peony & Blush Suede, Blackberry & Bay, and Earl Grey & Cucumber, but the freshness of this one made me think of English gardens and springtime, so it won in my book.
A new box of pretty jewelry exchanged as often as I want?? yes please! I've been getting Rocksbox's for over a year now, and they never cease to send the prettiest pieces. Even better, with every box you can like or dislike the items and tell them why, so that they can better tailor your boxes to your personal style. Example 1: my box is filled with delicate, layer-able, gold jewelry, which is my favorite kind right behind statement earrings. Don't forget you can use the code AUDRAKOCHXOXO for a free month of Rocksbox!
A New Yorker's staple shoe? a pair of black sneakers for commuting to work in, running errands, hitting the gym, and everything else! Since I walk about 9 miles per day on average, I needed a solid pair of sneaks to keep me comfortable pre-and-post work shoes. They're also amazing for throwing on to run and get groceries (People who don't live here will never know the pain of carrying 15 lb of groceries for 3 miles)
Get. This. Book. Arianna is considered to be one of the most successful women of our time, and in Thrive, she recounts the importance of taking care of yourself and spending time on the things in life that truly matter, and that these things will improve your professional success. She re-defines what the term success means, and it is a must-read absolutely everyone.
Let's talk about my favorite beauty brand yet again. I did a first impressions of this new shade of haloscope in my review of The Black Tie Set, and this bit has by far been my favorite of the set (with the nail polish and lipgloss coming VERY closely behind). It adds instant wet-effect dew highlight to everywhere you put it, and I'm not sure I could live without it. (okay, that's an overstatement, but it's seriously amazing)
