January Favorites

Grace Coddington Memoir, Stella and Dot Eva Ear jacket, Benefit tinted lash primer, LUSH cosmetics cup o' coffee facial mask and scrub, anastasia beverly hills contour palette, kopari sheer coconut oil

It was so hard to narrow down just a few favorites for this month! Between all the amazing gifts I received for Christmas, and new products I've been trying out, it was a very difficult decision! So here's a bit of beauty, an amazing book, and just a touch of fashion that I've loved this month!

Benefit tinted lash primer, LUSH cosmetics cup o' coffee facial mask and scrub, kopari sheer coconut oil

We'll start off with the bulk of the beauty. I've been all about going back to natural products lately. The Kopari Sheer Coconut oil is amazing as a makeup remover, moisturizer, nail oil, and split-end saver. Next up is the LUSH Cosmetics Cup o' Coffee facial scrub and mask. This little powerhouse of caffeinated-goodness perks up your skin, (bye bye dark circles) and leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft! Finally, the Benefit Tinted Lash Primer has totally changed my lash game! I use that as a base coat under the L'Oreal Million Lashes mascara, or alone if it's a natural makeup day. 

Grace Coddington Memoir, anastasia beverly hills contour palette

Two awesome things I got for Christmas made the final cut. My grandmother gave me a few books, and one of them was Grace Coddington's Memoir. I'm only about half way through it, but so far its full of funny and insightful stories about her childhood and early career. Such a good read. Next up, the Anastasia Contour Palette in light to medium. I was super skeptical of a contour palette because my skin is so fair, put this one is very easy to blend, and not too dark!

Stella and Dot eva ear jacket

Finally, we have these little gems, the Eva Ear Jacket from Stella and Dot! My sister gave them to me for Christmas, and I'm absolutely obsessed with them! The set comes with two pairs of studs and one jacket back, so you can wear the studs alone or either one with the jacket. Too cute!! Check them out in my Speckled Grey and Bright Poppy style posts. 

What I got for Christmas!

What I got for Christmas!

I love watching these videos from my favorite bloggers each year, and I was so blessed to have gotten some amazing gifts from friends and family this Christmas, so I thought I would make a video of my own!

A million thank-you's to all my wonderful friends and family! I tried to link everything I showed down below, but I may have missed something!

Book Club: Cass, Bronte, and Conrad

Book Club: Cass, Bronte, and Conrad

I have always been a bit of a bookworm, and I love tons of different types of books. Today I thought I would share a few titles that I have been particularly loving lately!

If you're a The Bachelor/Bachlorette fan, you will freak over this future-meets-fairytale novel! Dangerous love-triangles, conflicting feelings, and dystopian influences made this novel a huge hit in my view. I just finished Book 3: The One, and I can't wait to start Book 4! Kiera Cass has quickly become one of my favorite authors! (Also, can we take a moment to mention the covers? They're STUNNING. I have them all on my Kindle, but I almost wish I had them all hardcopy just for that!)

I absolutely adored these two reads by Lauren Conrad! Her effortless yet chic style has definitely become one of my inspirations. I swear I've read them both cover-to-cover 3 times!
