January Favorites

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

The start of a new month means it's time for my favorites post! Here are the things I've been loving for the past 31 days!

Beauty Product

I never thought a lip scrub was a product I actually needed. However, my favorite Youtube Beauty Gurus convinced me that just like I needed to exfoliate my hands or feet, I need to exfoliate my lips. The Tarte Maracuga Lip Exfoliant buffs away dry skin and helps prevent chapped lips. It is also great to use before lipstick to help your color stay longer!


I must have some sort of obsession with singers from England, because this month's favorite singer is Jasmine Thompson. (Remember in my November Favorites I introduced you all to Gabrielle Aplin.) Jasmine's cover of "Let Her Go" kept coming up on my Pandora station so I went to YouTube to look her up. Her voice is amazing! I also love her cover of  Titanium.


I just recently discovered the blog Classy Girls Wear Pearls and am in love with Sarah's style. The girl has layering talent. I found her on Instagram, and quickly realized a lot of the outfits I have pinned on Pinterest were hers! Her pictures are amazing and in the most beautiful locations! (A cabin in the snow, London, and Ireland most recently.)  And can we just all obsess over her walk in closet. I love her style for inspiration for what to wear to work, I highly recommend you check her out!


My obsession with my crock pot is starting to get a little out of hand. I recently discovered this taco soup and absolutely love it. It is so easy to make and delicious!  I make a soup in the crock pot each week. They are so easy for dinner and great to take for lunch, too.


I am a huge Eric Church fan. I have seen him twice in concert and am anxiously waiting for him to announce his next tour. His new song is seriously so good! (I guess some people don't think this song lives up to the songs on Chief... but I like it.)Not kidding when I say the first thing I do each day when I get to work is open up Spotify and play this song.
