January Favorites

Hello everyone! Didn’t January just fly by but also feel like it lasted for 6 months too? I know it did for me. I’m going to share a few of my favorite things over the past month for the post today.

Audible- I finally tried it after getting a 3-month subscription for Christmas and I am loving this for my commute. I feel so much more productive and it’s a nice way to kill time during my drive. I started listening to Mindhunter for my first book. I have watched the show and loved it and the book is very similar but also offers a ton of background detail. I’m looking for a new book for my next credit to use. If you have any suggestions let me know!

This comfy winter look, I’m wearing velvet joggers with a cropped gray hoodie. This has been my go to look when running errands or lounging at home. The hoodie is from Target and the pants I found at Nordstrom Rack 2 years ago. I’ll link the hoodie here and a similar style of jogger here.

This And other stories Alpaca Blend Puff Sleeve Cardigan is truly a winter staple in my wardrobe and I have been wearing it a lot this last month. It’s the perfect caramel color and is so soft and warm. You can dress it up or down, with a skirt or pants.

My new favorite jeans are these Topshop High Waist Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans. I have another pair in black but they’re a cropped length instead and knew I wanted to try them in a darker blue wash. I will say that when you first get a pair of these they may feel very tight and rigged but over time they relax, but still keep their shape. I love wearing them with either boots or sneakers.

Finally, the Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops which i received in my FabFitFun winter box has become a new beauty favorite. I’ve linked thee travel size verison here. You only need 1 to 2 drops and I like to use it as my primer. It creates a beautiful base for your makeup and helps to create a luminous, dewy glow. I do think the price is a bit high for the product but I am trying to find a good dupe for it. I’ll let you know if I do.

Those are my January favorites and I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know what you’re loving right now.
