January 2020 Round Up

January 2020…it still sounds weird to say 2020 even though it’s been an entire month! I really really tried to a good amount of posts up this month despite my unintentionally (but still yearly January) blog/Instagram break. I shared my 2020 New Year’s Resolution, I started a new “Manicure of the Month” nail series that I’m EXTREMELY excited about (check out my star manicure & evil eye manicure), I updated my everyday Makeup Routine with a new IGTV video, shared 10 things you might now know about me and shopped…A LOT!

I know I promised I was going to get my Southern California Travel Guide live before the end of January, but clearly I lied. But I’m working on it, and I’m confident it will be up before I leave for my next trip on February 14th! I’m also working on a new nuuly video, a post with my favorite Amazon purchases of 2019, a bedroom decor blog post and a few other things!


Since last month was pretty makeup heavy, it’s only fitting that this month was more about sharing my favorite skincare items. Some of these are new and some are old, but all of them are musts in my beauty routine!

farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask Clean Beautyfarmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask is one of my favorite clean face masks on the market! It’s a little strange to apply because it goes on like honey (very sticky), but you lather it on your face to “warm” it up, and washes off smooth! I also LOVE that the spatula is magnetic and stays attached to the top of the container!

Beauty products to help you sleep and make you look more awake Glow Habit Sleep Well Vitams Ice Roller Everydaze Eye PatchesWe’ll just call these 3 products, “Beauty products that help you sleep and look more awake when you don’t!” Glow Habit Sleep Well Vitamins (c/o) are new to me, but I’m very impressed, so much so that I can only take on instead of the recommend two to help me sleep! And for days that I don’t get enough sleep I always use my Ice Roller and eye patches, this month I’m trying out Everydaze Diamond Drop Hydrogel Eye Patches (c/o).

Derma E Blue Light Shield ProductsLastly I’m ALL about these derma E Blue Light Shield Products (c/o)! Not only can our eye be damaged from the blue light emitted by our screens time, but our skin can also be damaged by “digital pollution”. derma E created 2 products to protect your skin, Blue Light Shield Spray (which can be sprayed over your makeup) and Blue Light Shield Concentrated Serum which can be worn under!


Despite my Instagram feed/blog break earlier in the month, I still managed to share a good amount on Instagram stories including my daily outfits! I also shopped A LOT, so expect lots more new items being shared on stories over the next few weeks especially as I start packing for Spain!

Not surprised AT ALL that the H&M Mom High Ankle Jeans were my most popular item of January 2020! These jeans are literally the best fitting jeans I own and even though I only discovered them a few weeks ago I already own THREE pairs! If you haven’t given them a shot yet I can’t recommend them enough!

As far as sizing I would go with your true size, or size down. I’m usually a size 10 in H&M jeans, but I took an 8 in these!
