I think most of my friends and family are obsessed with the Starbucks Christmas blend this time of the year, but for those who prefer something a little sweeter I would recommend the cinnamon dolce. It's got the perfect touch of cinnamon and  feels like a hug in a mug. FYI, it also goes great with a touch a pumpkin spice creamer. 

I can't decide what I love about this lip gloss more: the pigment or the formula. It's a dream to apply because it's creamy and feels luxurious and the color pay-off is beautiful. For Christmas, my mom got me the double shot travel-sized duo which included the shades liar and anarchy. Liar is a neutral shade with a high shine and I love it for day or night. It's got a great twist to the shade that reminds me of the Kylie Jenner 90's lip but it's still practical enough to wear during the day. I haven't tried anarchy yet, which is a bright fuchsia but I'll let you know what I think about that as well! 

When I first saw photos of this palette online I thought that I could live without it, but I was SO WRONG. This was another Christmas present from my parents and I cannot believe how in love I am with these shadows. Like all Urban Decay shadows these are very pigmented and a little product goes a long way. For every day, I like using a combination of stark and anaheim in my crease, and blonde as my brow and inner-corner highlight. During New Years I used those shades and added serious to my outer corner and pop on my lid. I can't wait to continue creating new looks with this versatile palette and I'll add photos soon!


The first time I saw this jacket online my jaw dropped. I love the rosey hue of the nude faux-suede and the rose gold hardware is gorgeous. It's been my go-to jacket this fall and winter and I feel like it goes with every outfit I have. Unfortunately, it's sold-out but I just had to include this in my favorites because I really do love it. For anyone who was lucky enough to pick up this jacket, I've already put it in the washer and dryer and the jacket came out looking good as new. 

I wasn't ever interested in using a sponge or a beauty blender for my foundation until my roommate told me how much she liked the real techniques version. When I use this sponge damp it gives my skin an air-brushed finish and prevents product build up if I initially add too much on my face. I've never used the beauty blender but it's 3x the cost so I'm going to stick with the real techniques version for now.
