My Favorite Things: January ♥

Hey friends! This is my first blog post of 2017! I took a little break towards the end of the year because I was just a little unsure of the direction my blog was going. I love style and taking outfit pictures, but to be honest, I think I did so much of those posts last year because they were easy and didn't require that much time. This year I am not taking the easy way out! This year, 2017, is the year I go all out towards my goals and towards the things I want.  Just just expect a little more lifestyle/fitness related posts from me.  And even some weight loss check ins, too.  I will definitely continue to do outfit posts, but they'll just been sprinkled in.

With that being said, I just really wanted me make a quick post about a few of my favorite little things that I've been obsessing over this month.  Now, I know this month isn't over, but I wanted to do it anyways.  I feel like we're half way through the month and that's good enough.  Not to mention, some of these things I have been using for a little while so I already know they're favorites.  But anyways, let's just get into it!

So first up on my list of favorite things this month is my favorite perfume at the moment: Prada Candy Kiss.  I am a huge Prada Candy fan, but this time I wanted to switch it up.  I don't know if purchasing from the same line counts as switching it up lol, but for someone who loves the original like I do, it's a big step! I bought it for myself for my birthday in November and it's been going strong ever since.  Prada Candy Kiss has all the same sugary goodness as the original but it's got a sexy, muskiness to it that I love, as well.  

Next, I can't get enough of my "Everyone Loves a Scorpio," pencil case.  Everyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with astrology--I am a true Scorpio.  My little cousin got me this pencil pouch for Christmas, and it's perfect! It matches my pale pink wallet, and planner, and it's the perfect size to take some pretty pens and a few washi tapes with me wherever I go!

Third, and this may have been my #1 favorite this month, was the book the Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. One of my resolutions this year is to read at least a book a month.  This is my first finished book of 2017 and I have got to say I absolutely loved it! The author is amazing and the story line is so cute.  Without handing out any spoilers, this book is about a young, interracial romance, and how fate basically brought them together.  You will laugh and cry hysterically in this book.  It was such a light and easy read, and the perfect start to a year of good reads!

Finally, the catalog pictured is actually a Lush catalog.  I am loving Lush lately! I have always been obsessed with their bath bombs and bubble bars, I recently branched off into their hair products.  Because I have started my Say No to Heat 2017 challenge, I have really been looking for ways to take care of my curly hair, and to promote healthy growth.  So far this month I have tried a few samples, but my favorite is the Avo Co-wash.  I actually bought the whole bar, and I was a little skeptical because it was like $15 for a little bar.  But a little goes a LONG way and I love how the product makes me hair feel and smell! In addition to their hair products, as I've mentioned before, I love their bath stuff.  My current favorite bath bombs are the Experimenter and Twilight! If you haven't taken yourself a Lush bath with a book and a glass of wine lately, you are missing out on some serious R&R time.  

Anyways, I hope you all are having a great 2017 so far.  Comment down below what some of your favorite little things have been so far this month!
