I’m in love with this Cinnamon Sugared Donut Candle from Bath and Body works. This candle isn’t as strong as the other Candle I mentioned last month, but it fills the room up with a sweet, fairytale smell. It reminds me of a fair (Durham Fair) and freshly baked food from a bakery. I especially like how the lid is old fashioned and rustic. But I think my favorite part of this candle is the fact that I got it for $9 instead of its normal $22 price range because it was on sale. Hello bargain!
My brother, Nathan, got me this necklace from J.Crew for Christmas. Since I’ve been wearing it I have gotten a compliment every single time. I really like pairing it with different textures like cashmere shown above and silk it makes it sparkle a little bit more. What girl doesn’t love sparkly things!
I have two movie favorites for the month of January. I went to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay in the beginning of the month and loved it. I had to explain a lot of the movie to Rob when we went because he had never seen any of the movies. He ended up liking it despite not really knowing what was going on.
My new favorite song, The Hanging Tree actually comes from this movie by Jennifer Lawrence. She has such a wonderful voice and the background music fits in perfectly.
The second movie I saw was American Snipper. Rob and I went last night with two of our friends and it was such a great movie. You really connect with the patriotism U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) depicted in the movie. I had goose bumps at various times throughout this movie. This is an outstanding movie that I think really needs to be viewed. When we were all leaving the movie the whole room was silent.
My brother’s girlfriend, Heather, got me these Hair Ties made by Loft. I really like the different patterns and how well they stay in my hair. These ties are specially made so that they don’t leave creases in your hair after you take them out. It’s really nice on a Friday where I already did my hair and have to go do the gym before getting ready to go out. That way after I go to the gym, I don’t have to spend a lot of time fixing that annoying hair crease in my head. These are a must when it comes to working out and getting ready to go out later.
To add to my sparkling water addiction, Golden Peach by Clear American is by far the closest thing to soda without it actually being soda. It tastes just like a normal soda but without that gross sticky feeling in your mouth after. Yet again, it is sparkling water so it is 0 calories and 0 nutritional information. They do only sell them at Walmart and they are very cheap so definitely look into this brand.
I have met the most comfortable moccasins and fuzzy socks known to man. Once you put on the Wicked Good Moccasins by L.L.Bean you’ll never want to take them off. They come in five different colors (Blue, Brown, Chocolate Brown, Natural, and Vintage Red). I obviously got the Vintage Red color and it’s the most perfect shade of existence. The fuzzy sides make your entire foot feel like it’s inside a cloud. Legit, go into an airplane and think of touching those awesome puffy clouds and thats pretty much what my feet have been in the past month or so. My roommate also got a pair but in the blue and she agrees with me. She’s actually worn them out and about to class and to the dinning hall. These amazing penguin socks that, my best friend, Micky, got me them. I oddly collect everything penguin and she got me these socks to join my creepy collection. I love these socks. Is it weird to be in love with an article of clothing because I fell hard? Aeropostale/Micky you did good.
Since it around that time where everyone at college gets sick, I needed to stock up on my antibacterial soap. Bath and body works makes an array of delicious smelling hand sanitary soaps, washes, and basically anything that can help make sure you’re not going to catch a cold from the person three doors down the hall. They even have these adorable covers for the antibacterial hand sanitary. It is perfect for me, who wishes this -6° will go away soon and head quickly over to spring. The blue one is called Cocktails and Confetti and this man came into my work and told me I smelt like candy. It was sweet but a 50 year old man should probably not be saying that to a 20 year old. But if you want people to smell you and perhaps even tell you that they want to eat you up, stop into Bath and Body works and get a bunch of these crazy, delicious smells.
