December Favorites

Nail Polish

First Row from left to right:

  • Revlon Parfumerie in the color Bordeaux. I know these perfumes are supposed to smell good, but it really does not smell like anything other than nail polish. I really love how well this color shows up on the nails its a very bright and rich color.
  • Maybelline Color Show in the color Gilded Rose. 
  • Maybelline Color Show in the color Neutral Statement. In the month of December, I used these two Maybelline colors to the extreme. I typically put the gold color on my ring fingers and the neutral colors on the rest of the fingers. It makes your nails look so polished and clean. Clearly one of my favorites.
  • Nuance Salma Hayek in the color Prickly Pear. This has always been one of my favorite colors because of the brand. I don’t know how Salma Hayek does it but this brand of nail polish always is perfect. I honestly barely even need to put two coats on my nails because it glides on so well.

Bottom row was a gift from my brother’s girlfriend, Heather. I have no idea what the colors are called but I love how vibrant the three of these are. My favorite one is the middle one, which is currently on my nails.

Purse

I finally did it! I finally gained enough courage and bought a Kate Spade bag. I was deciding between this bag, Cassie, and the Southport Avenue Carmen. I’m so happy with my choice. This bag is so perfect for what I wanted. I needed a bag that I can put on my shoulder and can also hold with just my hand. Since I always cary a water bottle, I needed something durable to withstand that weight and big enough to hold it. Thats why I picked this bag. The bag originally sold for $335, but I actually got it for $93.50! It was 60% off and then an extra 30% off because my friend’s mom works at the store. I’ve never been happier with my first real bag.

Candle

This candle, Cinnamon Caramel Swirl, is from Bath and Body Works and it is by far one of the most heavenly smells I have smelt. Before you even light the candle, the whole room smells of Cinnamon, which happens to be one of my favorite aromas. Definitely a smell you need to stop by and enjoy. Plus look how cute the lid is!

I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews of the Clinique Take the Day Off makeup remover so I decided to to try it out. And let me tell you, it works wonders. I was breaking out pretty bad at a school so I needed something to help me fix my skin. I received this present when I came home, so I’m not quite sure if my skin started to clear up because I was finally home or because of this product. However, it did clear up my skin and it didn’t dry it out like normal products do to my skin. Definitely recommended.

Earrings

I received these pearls by the Honora Collection from my parents for my birthday. I love pearls because of how classic they look. These pearls are a little bit different from most pearl earrings because they come with what Honora calls “Happy Backs”. The backs are more secure and comfortable than other backs because they’re slightly bigger.

I received the Miss Dior perfume for christmas and it smells exactly like my perfume… well in my mind. Miss Dior created this perfume for an, “elegant and spirited young woman in love. She personifies the spontaneous joie de vivre of today’s young women, representing a particular type of freedom and seduction. The fragrance is characterised by an instant and captivating charm.” I couldn’t agree more. This perfume reminds me of someone just becoming an adult but not quite there. Personally, I can’t read descriptions and smell the perfume so if you’re really curious take a trip to Macy’s. When you buy this perfume you actually get a cute little leather bag filled with extra samples and a little Macy’s mirror.

This beautiful Burnish Angel Wing necklace is from Rob. It’s handmade in Alaska and I think thats the coolest thing ever. He often calls me his angel, hint at the wings. He wrote a letter that came with the necklace, which plays a big part of why I love this present so much. I’ve been wearing it practically every day since I received it.IMG_0556

I am officially obsessed with this delicious Perrier sparkling water. It has a hint of grapefruit so it’s not just drinking carbonated water and let me tell you… I found heaven. I’ve drank 10 of these just today. But no worries, its just water so no calories like soda. I love squeezing lemon into it so it gets a little bit more flavor. Plus lemon is great for your skin and your liver so its a win win.
