January Favorites

It's February first! that means it's time for a January favorites post! This is something I want to keep up with every month because it's a good way to see what products I loved throughout the year. This post will include beauty products, multi-media, home goods, books, and so much more. I hope you enjoy it.
Beauty:
For the beauty category I have made it a commitment to wear makeup every day I work. This means about 4 times a week usually. On the other days I am just at home teaching piano lessons (which I will write more about later) I usually at least do concealer, eyebrows, and mascara. I have gotten really lax in my makeup wearing and I have also found that minimal is best for me. I don't like a foundation that is to heavy, and I really don't need it. These are the products I have been using this past month and I have fallen in love with each of them.
1. Tarte Amazonian Blush in Exposed

I love this color! It's the perfect color for my fair skin and I just feel like it's the perfect every day blush. I have been wearing it every day for the past month and I highly recommend it.

2. Nyx micro brow pencil in taupe.

 So I've only been filling in my eyebrows since 2013. I know it's crazy but I feel like they really shape my face and it looks so much better when I do. This micro brow pencil is perfect for my brows and I love that it comes with a spooley on the end. A really great product if you are looking for something new.

3. Last but not least is Lipsense.
I was skeptical about trying lipsense. I know all the hype about it and I just am not a lip product person. I have so many lip glosses, lip stick, etc but I honestly never wear them. So I didn't want to spend $55.00 on a product if I wasn't going to truly love it and wear it. Anyway I took the plunge this month and seriously it is amazing. I bought the color first love and it's perfect:
It's just this great every day neutral color and it's a my lips but better color for me. Love lipsense and I will be buying more. In fact I need to go buy my next color :)

4. The last beauty product I have fallen in love with is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Seriously I don't know if you would ever need another palette, this one is so perfect. I can do so many eyeshadow looks and it's great for travel. We have been going on a lot of vacations to St. George this year already and I always take this palette with me. If I forget a product I can usually use an eyeshadow to perform the same the function, such as for brows, highlighter, etc. It's worth the money and you will use it all the time. I've had this palette for 2 years now and it feels like I hardly have made a dent in it, which is why I am making a goal to wear makeup more. Love it so much!

Now moving onto my other hobby which is Planning. I have been obsessed with planning since 2012. I found the Erin Condren Life Planner that year and have loved it ever since. With this obsession has come an obsession over stickers. The newest sticker shop I discovered in January is Fox and Cactus.

 Just look how cute their banner is for their shop. Which you can find here.
I get the rose stickers cause she looks the most like me and I got a bunch with my last order. If you need cute character stickers check them out.

Another planner favorite this month has been designing my own planner stickers. I find it saves me money and let's me be creative. I want to start up my series of how to make planner stickers again on the blog so look out for more of those types of posts.
Some of my favorite designers right now are:
TWG Designs
Frou Frou Craft
and Bloomsical

My last category of favorites is Multi-media.
The first one is a T.V. show called Parks and Rec

I'm sure many of you have already watched it but if you need a show to watch on netflix this is a good one. My husband likes it as well so we usually watch it together at night after Claire goes to bed.

The last multi-media favorite is the kindle app for iPhone. I am loving my reading goal I have for 2017 and have read some great books so far. It's nice to have them right on my phone so that I can read if it gets slow at work or if I am waiting in an office somewhere. I do have a kindle as well but it's much easier for me to have access to it through my phone.

Well there you have it. What are some of your favorites from this past month?
