Riding out that last week of January was a struggle. Between avocados being out of season and the influx of polar
burrrs vortexes I didn’t think I was going to make it. But the impossible was made possible and here we are in February: the month of love, Harriet Tubman, and swimsuit season awareness (it’s coming–and it’s coming fast, ya’ll).
Although I didn’t particularly care for January (note: except for the part where I was traveling in Europe) I did have some favorite new things pop into my life via Christmas and favorite old things that are officially broken in after being my uniform during the coldest month of my life. One of which being the hair straightener I got as an angsty 16 y/o and now can’t seem to put down. It’s chrome. Who am I even? Let’s start.
From top left to right: Free People boyfriend jeans (similar here–here–here), 100 Foods to Stay Young by Charlotte Watts (amazon), Moleskin 2014 Day Planner (here), Chi hair straightener, Capri Blue mercury glass jar candle (anthropologie), Vintage bracelet (thanks mom), MAC Creamsheen Lipstick in Sunny Seoul (here), my sweet succulent (local nursery), white high top Converse (here), Twinnings English Breakfast tea, and Merona tote bag from Target (here).
“Why did she include that tea?”
Listen, spend two weeks in England and tell me you aren’t enjoying (and now expecting) to have between 2-3 cups of hot English Breakfast tea in a day. Twinnings sells a box of 50 bags for like 6 bucks, so I suggest you locate your nearest grocery (Whole Foods has it) and purchase.
Whenever I smear (delicately smear) on my Sunny Seoul lipstick from MAC I know that spring really IS coming and it can’t be that far off. It is a super creamy formula, and the most perfect pink-coral hybrid I’ve ever found. It lasts a long time, especially if you blot right after application, and I would imagine it to look good with most skin shades.
This book is the COOLEST. I’ve been really into nutrition recently, so when I was trying to decide what to spend my B&N gift card on I was lucky to spot this baby. I’ve only made it through the first quarter of the foods, but I am hooked. I understand all of the nutritious proteins and enzymes I chose to pretend didn’t exist when I was taking AP Biology in high school. Now that it seems more relevant–I care. It’s super affordable and well worth picking up if you are trying to get your body to reach it’s full potential (inside and out).
Birthday countdown: 4 days.
Speak to you all soon!
