And just like that, it is February! I am excited to share my January Favorites with you guys this month. Following the holidays, it is so fun to play around with your gifts and gather items for a “fresh start” to 2018. Here we go…
January Favorites 2018
This year, I switched it up from my Erin Condren LifePlanner that I have been using for the last four years. I decided to go for a daily planner. I am a list maker and having one assigned for every day is way better than the pile of sticky notes all over the place.
Nate bought me this suitcase for Christmas and I am obsessed! It is beautiful and super sturdy. It has a breaking system so your suitcase doesn’t roll away from you, and also came with a couple of matching storage bags for shoes or dirty clothes. The matching suitcase in the larger size is on my current wishlist!
I feel a little bit like a broken record talking about how dry my skin and scalp are… but hey – Minnesota winters will do that to ya. I have been on the hunt for the perfect combination of products and found this weekly treatment from Drybar. You guys…. SO GOOD! It is a little bit on the spendy side, but I will likely do it only in the winter. Highly recommend. It leaves your hair super soft and keeps my hair nicer in between washes.
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick*
I don’t wear a ton of lipstick but when I do, I want something that is creamy and really moisturizing. Influenster and Kat Von D sent me their new Studded Kiss Lipstick in the shade Ludwig to test out. This shade is a matte mauve/nude color and feels more like a chapstick on your lips! Usually, a matte lip will be super dry on me but this one is so good! It also comes in 40 shades and I can’t wait to test some more of them!
*Influenster and Kat Von D sent this product complimentary for testing purposes. As always, all opinions are my own!
Ring – RocksBox
I have been subscribed to Rocksbox since July 2016. In my most recent box, I received this dainty ring. I will be keeping this one! If you are interested, click here or use code ALYSEBFF16 for your first month free!
If you missed my Home Improvement Goals post, I talked about all of the stuff in our house that we wanted to get done in 2018. Putting up a window treatment in our bedroom was one of them. Nate got our curtains up a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE what they did to our bedroom. Who knew that something so simple could make that much of a change! We got these adorable ones with little pom poms on them. I was more than happy to put a big CHECK next the that one on the list!
Being the product junkie that I am, I have a lot of hair/makeup/skincare products. I have a mirror in my bedroom where I get ready and it was just clustered with products everywhere. I found this organizer at The Container Store and I can’t believe the different it made. It fits perfected behind my mirror. The two drawers can be removed if you want all of your products out in front of you and then just slides back into the organizer and out of sight.
I hope you all had a great week! We have our first wedding of the year tonight and I am excited to get dressed up and dance the night away. Winter weddings are some of my favorite to attend! We are also gearing up for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Do you have any big game day traditions or food that you must have every year? I would love to hear about it! Send me a message or leave a comment below! Here’s to the weekend! 🙂
