January: Favorites

Unlike most months, January hasn’t flown by. I usually find myself thinking, “I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the month” but in this case, I can’t believe we’re STILL in January. I’m not trying to rush through the last few months of college, but I feel like it’s been January for FAR longer than 25 days. I have a lot of fun blog posts planned for the upcoming weeks/months, but for now, here are some of my favorites from the month of January.

Simple Styles
I’ve been loving really simple styles. Every morning, I find myself wanting to reach for a grey knit sweater, jeans, and black booties. I’ve even found myself ditching my big tote bag for a plain black crossbody purse. Here are some of my favorite wardrobe must-haves to achieve the modern and simple style.

Warm Tones
I’m sure if you’ve been on my Instagram feed lately, you can tell I’m into warm tones (pinks, peach, oranges, yellows, rust, tans, etc). I love wearing warm tones, doing my makeup with warm colors, and I love working in a space with warm tones. My bedroom (in my house at school) has cream-colored walls, and my lighting makes them a little more warm. When I am sitting at my desk and have the glow-y cream colored walls around me, I feel so productive.

Thrift Shopping
If you’ve seen my most recent YouTube video  you would know how much I love thrift shopping. I absolutely love it because you never know what you’ll find. I’ve found designer jeans for $3.99, sweaters for $2, and there are always wicker baskets to use as home decor. I’d love to do a thrift haul blog post next time I go thrift shopping, so comment if you’d like to see that!

Green Smoothies
I’m REALLY late on this trend, but I was never a big smoothie person before. My new favorite smoothie consists of a mix of kale and spinach, frozen mango, banana, and blueberries (and I don’t even really like blueberries!!!). I’ve had it for breakfast almost every morning this week and I’ve been loving it!

Podcasts
I’ve been in somewhat of a music rut which is SO weird for me. I find myself getting bored halfway through my workouts I haven’t found anything new that I’ve liked, so I decided to try to find some podcasts that I liked. I recently discovered Danielle Gervino’s podcast “Blogging Unscripted” which is brand new, but has been SO good so far! I also enjoyed one or two of the Gals on the Go  podcast, but I don’t totally love it. If you have any recommendations, I’d love to hear them! I like motivational/informative podcasts.

Mixing Silver and Gold Jewelry
I’ve had a Cape Cod bracelet for as long as I can remember. I have the silver bracelet with the gold ball, and I absolutely love the way it looks. In the past, I’ve gone through phases of ONLY gold jewelry, ONLY silver jewelry, and I even went through a phase of ONLY rose gold jewelry. I never wanted to mix and match because I thought the pieces would clash, but lately I’ve been combining the two and I love the way it looks. I personally think it looks more expensive and classic when there’s a mix of the two!
