Things I’m Loving: January Edition

Welcome to my first edition of Things I’m Loving!

Since I work in marketing, I understand the power of word-of-mouth. Many products I use, clothes I purchase, and food I try are recommendations from friends or bloggers. There’s rarely an occasion that I purchase a product on a whim without some sort of influence.

I hope that you enjoy seeing some of the things I’m loving. If you try anything or love it too, please leave a comment below.

Now, onto my latest obsessions…

The Crown on Netflix

Ok, some of you know that I’m secretly obsessed with the Royal family (well, more with William and Kate…but that’s another story). I’ve been watching The Crown on Netflix. It follows the life of Queen Elizabeth — from childhood through monarchy. Every episode, I find myself googling to see if the events showed really happened. I’ve binged Season 1 and am now working through Season 2. I’ve seen The Kings Speech and thought it was fantastic. After The Crown, I have Victoria and Abdul and Darkest Hour on my “must watch” list. If you have some time, watch the first episode of The Crown. Let me know if you like it!

Revlon ColorStay Exactify Liner

revlon colorstay liner, liquid liner, eyeliner

I found out about this product in January’s issue of Real Simple. I’ve always struggled with liquid liner, so when I saw this product I knew I had to try it. Instead of a brush, the applicator is a small wheel — like a pizza cutter. GENIUS! In a matter of minutes, I had two even cat eyes! YAY for cheap beauty products that work!

SO Delicious Dairy-Free Coconut Almond Bars

I’m lactose intolerant, so giving up ice cream is hard. Sometimes I’ll power through the pain and treat myself to a small pint of Ben & Jerry’s, but THANK GOD I found these Coconut Almond Bars! They are so good! Such a great substitute for anyone who is avoiding dairy.

OPI Bond Aid

You guys! I love painting my nails, but HATE when it chips after a day. I just tried OPI’s Bond Aid and WOW it’s amazing! I’m on day 6 on my DIY manicure with no chips! Did I mention I type on my computer all day AND I went to the gym last night AND I’ve showered? No chips!!! More mani pics coming in the future!

Target’s JoyLab High Waist Mini Stripe Leggings

The weather has been frigid in Raleigh the past 2 weeks — like low 20s with wind chill in the single digits! I’ve been wearing full-length leggings to the gym, but I only have 2 pairs. You can’t have enough full-length leggings so I ventured to Target to see what they had in stock. Their new activewear brand, JoyLab, has some really cute stuff! These high-waist leggings are awesome!
