Off Duty / On Style
Welcome everyone to my “favorites series” on my blog! At the end of each month, I will be sharing my favorite products, trends or other random things that I have been loving. As a frequent YouTube beauty guru viewer, I have always loved favorites videos so I am excited to finally have an outlet to post my favorites! Here are the things that I have been loving for the month of January.
The Chanel Haute Couture show took place on January 26th and I absolutely loved it! Chanel has always been one of my favorite brands, but this show really exceeded my expectations. The looks contained intricate details in the designs and a stunning dollhouse runway. These elements worked together to fit the eco-friendly theme crafted by the amazing, Karl Lagerfeld. Also, the show featured three of my favorite models Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid.
Knee-high socks have become my go-to with living in the cold Wisconsin winter. This pair, from American Eagle Outfitters, is extremely comfortable and perfect for lounging around or wearing to peek out of boots!
A little late to the game here, but I finally got Benefit Cosmetic’s Gimme Brow for Christmas and wow, it is incredible! The brush size is perfect and it makes it easy to blend and build. It also holds your brows in place all day!
Another Chanel favorite made the list this month! This was also a Christmas gift (Santa knows me too well). Chanel Chance Eau Vive is now my signature scent. From the moment I got a whiff, I just knew it was the essence of me: vibrant, playful and yet sophisticated.
The vanilla almond granola bars from Trader Joe’s are currently one of my favorite breakfasts and snacks. The consistency is perfectly balanced with the granola, almonds and drizzle. Just do yourself a favor and try them!
Trader Joe’s has definitely come through for me this month. I can honestly say that the dark chocolate cookie butter cups are life-changing. These are the perfect bite-sized treat for me after a meal!
I have a ton of music favorites from this month, but to spare you guys I will give you my top three and if you want more then check out my “Welcome 2016” playlist on Spotify.
BANNERS unfortunately only has five officially released songs on Spotify, but I have been listening to all of them on repeat for weeks. If you want to pick one song to check out it would be Gold Dust (but do yourself a favor and listen to all of them).
Lewis Del Mar has a unique alternative sound that I think many people would enjoy. His whole EP is awesome, but I really enjoy Memories.
Hands to Myself by Selena Gomez is a catchy tune that has consistently made me get up and dance all month!
That’s all for this month! It’s hard to believe that one month of 2016 has already slipped through my fingers. Let’s keep making each month count!
