Monthly Muse: January Favorites

For once, I think January went by rather slow & I'm very grateful for that. I always feel like January goes the slowest of the year. It's the first month of a new year and a fresh start; as sad as I am to see Christmas go, I am excited for the new year so January is one of my favorite months.

February? Not so much & it's pretty much downhill from here and I'm already counting down the days until September & Fall... is that bad? I just wish it was fall & winter year round; I think I need to move Iceland or Alaska or somewhere extremely cold.

Anyways... So far, 2017 has been pretty ok & it's a good feeling. There were lots of different kinds of favorites this month, not as many beauty items & a lot of fashion/accessories. As I've mentioned before, I'm not buying that many beauty products but goodness me, I want too. I've really caught the beauty bug again and have been stalking the Sephora website.

In the meanwhile, I've been obsessing over a few accessories and other things.



1. Louis Vuitton Pouchette: I talked all about this item in a post last week and I just have been loving it. I went to the Poconos this weekend and used this as my all in one wallet/bag & it was a pleasure. I'm not sure if I mentioned it the last time but this is a pouch that comes with the Neverfull MM. A pouch also comes with the GM Neverfull bag and is bigger than this one, since the GM is bigger.

2. Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote: I bought this bag on a whim in the beginning of the month & I'm head over heels. I wanted a new tote for work, something was structured but still had some give to it. I like to switch my work bags a lot and I thought this was perfect to add to the collection. It's a decent size, not too big or too small, has one interior pocket, and is a sleek canvas. It feels like a plastic covering but doesn't look or feel cheap. It's a perfect all in one tote for work, school, or travel.

3. Laura Geller Brighten & Conceal Concealer: Concealer is my #1 favorite beauty product ever & I'm always looking for the next best thing. I was getting bored with my collection & decided to take something from work that I haven't really tried. I've used this item in the past but I changed my color from Fair to Porcelain. I've noticed that when I don't wear foundation, my concealer is really dark (duh!) and I needed something lighter for days when I just want concealer. This bad boy is my new favorite. It's easy to apply, blendable, and really covers up the dark circles. It's not a full coverage concealer but it's perfect for no makeup makeup days.

4. First Aid Beauty Color Correcting Cushion: The moment I saw this I knew I had to have it. I love First Aid Beauty so much, I love cushion products, and I love color correcting; combine them and you have a winner. I'm not 100% sure how this product should work but I use it as a primer. It evens my skin out & just makes everything look better. I've never noticed such a difference of when I wear this & when I don't. It's my new favorite beauty product.

Hope you all enjoyed January!
