January Favorites!

WOW WOW WOW, January favorites already?! I can’t believe this month is pretty much over, but I feel like I start 98% of my favorites posts saying that. Anyway, let’s see what I loved this month.


I talked about the original Tartelette palette in my 2015 favorites and already knew this one was going to make it into this month’s faves pretty early on. It’s got the most perfect warm neutral colors but you can still create a couple of different looks with it. If you’re thinking about picking this baby up, stay tuned, I’ll have a review up soon!

This sample of Glamglow came in one of my Sephora Favorites bags I picked up in November. I didn’t use it until this month and I can already tell you I’m going to be picking up some more of their masks. I’ve heard nothing but good things about all of their different ones but they are stupid expensive. I haven’t wanted to make the leap but I’m pretty sure this sample has convinced me. 

I must have a thing for not really liking mascara when I first open them but liking them more as I use them. I don’t know if it just takes a bit for me to get used to the wand and formula or if the world is right and most things get better with time. Either way, I found myself using it all month long.

I can’t tell if this Smashbox primer water is actually doing something for my skin or if it’s just water but either way I’ve used it every day before applying my makeup and it’s pretty much empty. I feel like it helps even my skin out and make my makeup go on a little more smoothly. Maybe I’ll wait a week when I run out and see if I notice a huge difference before repurchasing. 


I binged the entire season (as I’m sure 99% of the world did) of Making a Murder this month. AKA how I spend my New Years day. I was obsessed with serial so I knew this was right up my alley. I don’t have much to say because there’s so much controversy surrounding it; but if you want to know my thoughts, read this article ( ) because I pretty much agree with the whole thing! 

I needed a change of pace after spending 10 hours with Steve Avery so I’ve been rewatching Gossip Girl and I forgot how much I loved it. I mean… Dan Humphrey, I can’t be the only one that absolutely loves him, can I? It’s an easy show to have on because I’ve seen it a million times and don’t have to give it my full attention. Although, I totally do and end up procrastinating or staying up way too late because “one more episode.”

I got these SONY speakers for Christmas and praise hands emoji. You know when you get something you didn't even know you needed and you wonder how you lived life without it? That’s what this was for me. My mac pretty much whispers when I’m trying to play music so this speaker is so handy. Now I constantly have jamzzz playing and I’m loving it. 

Since I’ve been non stop listening to music- it’s only fitting I have a new favorite song. I actually love all of Rainy Days + Sleepless Nights by Adam Agin but my favorite has to be Bookends. It’s such a pretty song but also, ALL THE FEELS. 


I celebrated my birthday last weekend at Universal and it definitely made it into my favorites. Apparently I can only be friends with people named Jessica who also have birthdays within a month of mine. Of course we all got birthday pins, consumed a little too much fireball and continued to insist on going on rides after the park was closed because “it’s my birthday” and “Helen sent me” are valid excuses. Last week I recapped 25 things 25 taught me and I’m already learning some valuable lessons for 26.

For the past few years I’ve been really into statement necklaces. I think that you can pair them with a simple tee or dress and really have them make well.. a statement. I’ve got more than I know what to do with but this past month, I’ve changed it up. LOFT had this gorgeous double bar necklace that I knew I needed to try out. I’ve had my eye on a simple bar for a while but didn’t want to commit to spending lot because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the simplicity but so happy I picked this up!

That's it- that's all I got for you today. What were some of your favorite things in January?
