January Favorites

Happy Hump Day!  Today I am linking up with Mia to share my January Favorites!  Here goes:

1.  Vaseline Advance Healing Lip Therapy.  For years I have been using a whole slew of products to combat the dry lips that I experience every year thanks to the brutal NYC cold.  I thought I had a winner in Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment but it is pretty expensive at $22 a tube. Then, when my hubby broke his ankle I was in the hospital with him for a few days and my lips were super chapped.  Of course I had no products with me for that so I went down to the gift shop.  All they had was the Vaseline so I bought it.  It is my new FAVORITE.  It is not greasy and doesn’t sit on your lips like gloss.  It absorbs immediately and actually softens and smooths.  I love it so much that on my last trip to Target I bought ten tubes.  Taylor thought I was nuts but I will never use anything else.

2.  Women’s Nike Free 5.0 V4 Running Shoes.  I have wanted these for a super long time but they were sold out.  I finally found them at Finishline and am totally in love.  Super comfy and maybe at some point I will stop being so lazy and wear them to work out.  Maybe.

3.  Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.  I know I am behind the trend on this one.  Everyone has been raving about MO products for a while and I did try the oil a while back and I didn’t love it.  A few weeks ago I got a Keratin treatment for the first time – LIFECHANGING – and my hairdresser recommended this brand because it doesn’t have sulfates.  I’ve been using it for a few weeks and I’m pretty happy with it.  It smells great.

4.  The Woman Who Stole My Life.  I am going to do a full review on this in the near future but I love Marian Keyes and this was worth reading.

5.  Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush.  Ahmazingggggggggg.  This video shows you how to use it and it really does work.  I am giving away three brushes from this line (including the contour brush).  You can enter to win them here.

    There are not enough heart eyes emojis for how I feel about those sneaks! I always forget about Vaseline chapstick and how amazeballs it is, thanks for the reminder!!! Taylor will be stocking up on a good thing one day before she knows it 😉

    Where do I start haha! First off, I will be trying that lip therapy. I just told Dustin the other night, maybe I need to start trying some more “medicated” type ones. Ten tubes LOL!!! Those shoes are so CUTE <3 and my aunt is a hairdresser and bought me the Moroccan oil, shampoo & conditioner last year. I loved it too, amazing!!

    I’m due for some new running shoes so I’ll check out those Nikes 🙂 I’ve heard that that Vaseline stuff is awesome. My coworker was JUST talking about it. I’ll have to try it! Thanks for linking up!

    Those Nikes are totally cute!!! I can’t wait to hear your review of that book, I am always looking for more to add to my to-read list. And I still can’t get over how beautiful those brushes are.

    I love those shoes! I need to try that Moroccan Shampoo and Conditioner, I currently use the oil on my hair and love it! Fingers crossed that I win the brushes! 😉

    I have that book on my to-read list so I’m glad to hear that you would recommend it! I need to pick up that vaseline the next time I’m at the store- I use one of the bigger tubes of vaseline because it’s one of the only things that works when my lips are super dry- which seems to be all the time in the winter.

    ooooh can’t wait to hear about the book 🙂 i used MO many years ago and then kind of forgot about it. i loved it though, might have to start using it again!

    I love MO products! I swear by them to any one looking for a new hair product to use. Also, really excited that RT has a flat contour brush. I bought the NARS Ita brush a few months back, loved it to pieces but lost it. Since then I just couldn’t justify spending another 30-40$ repurchasing.

    I love those sneakers!!!

    I will have to check out that book – I am always looking for new book recommendations. A book that I highly recommend is That Night by Chevy Stevens – it was the best book that I have read in a long time.
