January Favorites

I haven’t posted about beauty or fashion before, but this month I found too many great new products not to share! These are some cute and functional pieces that I got from Christmas, my birthday, or awesome after-holiday sales.

Booties!

bp33-1

What: These booties (in ‘Desert Taupe’ from Call it Spring)

Where:  Macy’s

Rating: 9/10

Best features: Versatility & style

Booties are very ‘in’ this year, and I’m glad I joined in on the trend. I treated myself to these, and they’re been my go-to for the colder weather. I love these because they can be worn with leggings, jeans, or a dress… they match just about everything. (They would’ve been a 10/10, but they run a little large.)

Mini-wallet

bp33-2

What: Kate Spade ‘Darla’ wallet

Where: Kate Spade

Rating: 8/10

Best Features: Compact size & lots of pockets

I’ve had my eye on this wallet for a while, as small wallets like this one are a must in college, to keep your keys, ID, and cards handy on-the-go. Kate Spade never disappoints! I especially love that it has a key ring attached, but I always prefer a zipper closure over a snap.

Matte lipstick

bp33-3

What: NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in ‘Ruffle Trim’

Where: Ulta

Rating: 9/10

Best Features: Price ($7!!!) & color selection

I’m working on growing my makeup collection, but I’m all about finding quality makeup for less than the ‘designer’ brands, so NYX is a great choice. These lipsticks are affordable, come in lots of shades, and won’t dry out your lips. Its one flaw is that it’s not as long-lasting as other matte lipsticks, but it’s still an easy favorite for me.

Lipgloss

bp33-4

What: NYX Butter Gloss in “Tiramisu”

Where: Ulta

Rating: 10/10

Best Features: Price ($5!) & color selection

This is my new go-to for every day wear. It’s hydrating and comes in lots of colors. I’ll definitely be adding more of these to my collection soon.

Water bottle

bp33-5

What: Insulated water bottle (this one is similar to mine)

Where: Target

Rating: 10/10

Best Features: Keeps your drink ice cold all day!

These type of water bottles are perfect for staying hydrated at class or at the gym. The ‘off brand’ versions work just as well, and they really do keep your drink cold!

Long sleeve shirts

What: American Eagle ‘Soft & Sexy’ long sleeve shirts (this & this)

Where: American Eagle

Rating: 10/10

Best Features: Softness & versatility

I have these in 4 different colors, they’re that great (and AE’s winter sales were that great). All the shirts in this line are soft, comfortable, and can be styled lots of different ways. Another perk, they were designed to be long enough to wear with leggings, so I’ve been wearing these with booties every chance I get.

Comfy sandals

bp33-7

What: Dr. Scholl’s lace up gladiator sandals in black

Where: TJ Maxx

Rating: 8/10

Best Features: Price & comfort

My sister and I both each got a pair of these on our most recent trip to TJ Maxx, and we got them for half the advertised price on Dr. Scholl’s! We’ve both been looking for a pair of sandals like these, and the price, style, and comfort made them a no-brainer. They aren’t as all-day comfortable as I was hoping, but they’re still comfier than regular sandals.

iPhone wristlet

bp33-8

What: this iPhone wristlet (in any print, they’re all so pretty)

Where: Lilly Pulitzer

Rating: 10/10

Best Features: Design & practicality

Like the Kate Spade mini-wallet, this is a great item for any college girl. It fits the necessities without being bulky.

I hope you enjoyed my January favorites, I’m so happy with these products and I know they will all be favorites of mine for a long time.

Thanks for reading!
