January 2017 Favorites

Rose Gold iPhone 7¬†– Unfortunately I dropped my phone right after the holidays and, while I thought the thing was indestructible, it ended up not working after it took it’s last hit. That meant I needed an upgrade. Shucks ūüôā . This is literally the best phone I’ve ever had! I love the size, color, and quality.¬†It’s perfect for me.

Clear Mandala Phone Case¬†– So of course I had to get something pretty to keep this one safe. I opted for a clear, mandala-patterned back case so that the pink could shine through. I paired it with a clear screen protector and now I’m all set!

Moleskine 2017 Weekly Planner РThis baby has been keeping me organized already. I love the layout of this planner because it includes daily, weekly, and monthly layouts. I set a lot of different types of goals this year and think the process of tracking everything in this planner will help me stick to them.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss¬†– I’m not sure why, but this lippie in the shade “Birthday Babe” has been on repeat for me in January because I’m more comfortable with a color on my lips, but this has been an easy transition into neutrals for me. It’s a great winter shade and a comfortable wear.

Real Techniques Blush Brush¬†– You need this brush!!! The size, hands down, is my favorite part. I didn’t realize the pain I was putting myself through with smaller blush brushes until I got this baby and having been seriously loving it.

Clean and Clear Shower Mask¬†– I got this in a recent Walmart Beauty Box¬†as a sample and liked it so much that I purchased the full sized version. This works nicely for me in the shower after I do a deep face exfoliation. It’s a nice way to get moisture back into the skin and fully cleanse the surface of your face.

Lipstick Challenge: Days 25-30

It’s (finally) time to wrap up my 30 days of ¬†lipstick!¬†If you are unfamiliar, I accepted this challenge as a way to use up lipsticks that have been hanging out in my collection. If you are like me, you know the first-world struggle of wearing the same products over and over again, even when you have a wide variety to choose from. So, each day for 30 days I wore a new lip product on its own for the entire day. I didn’t mix and match and I didn’t rewear throughout the month.

Here is my final round of lip products…

25. Be A Bombshell¬†‚ÄúLipstick Crayon‚ÄĚ in¬†Versailles
26. LOC “Ultra Gloss Lip Pencil” in Cupid’s Bow
27. Mirabella “Velvet Lip Pencil” in Red
28. Wet n Wild “Matte Lipstick” in Smokin’ Hot Pink
29. Rimmel “Stay Glossy Lip Gloss” in Treasure Hunt
30. Bare Minerals “Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick” in Love

I would totally recommend this challenge to anyone who loves lip products! It was the perfect way to decide for myself which were my favorites and which didn’t work well for me. At the end of this challenge I was able to declutter over 10 lip products that I didn’t reach for throughout the month.¬†Let me know if you take on this challenge for yourself because I would love to keep up with your journey, XOXO!

Check out my previous posts from this challenge here… ¬†Days 1-6, 7-12, 13-18, and¬†19-24.
