december favorites

With a new month and therefore an end of a month, I have my December favorites for y'all! December had a lot of simplifying and gift-buying, therefore not leaving me with a lot of time to myself, which honestly is just fine sometimes. Therefore, my favorites for this month are very basic and nothing too over-the-top, but I still wanted to share some of my most treasured and used items in case you need some pick me ups or just some ideas to keep warm/keep moisturized/keep glowin!





In winter it's so fucking hard to look nice. Seriously, it is. That's why I love being able to smell nice because with smelling nice.....comes....feeling nice?? I'm a huge rose fan so don't listen to me if you're not, but smelling like a rose makes me feel fresh, vibrant, and not like I'm dying from being chapped in places I didn't even know I could be chapped. The Mario Badescu spray literally makes you feel reborn. I also added the Chanel powder because it's great with keeping your makeup in place, and, of course, my Nars duo because I'm obsessed and it makes me glowy, even in the winter.



Winter I think is the best time to keep everything simple; therefore, my wardrobe is the simplest, coziest it can be. Tons of turtlenecks, sleepwear, and knitted lingerie. Think Brandy Melville on steroids...that was the goal of my closet this month. Really, it's all about being comfy yet cute and not looking like a hobo. Maybe a cute hobo.




Going along with the whole coziness idea of December, I've been drinking tons of tea (green tea and peppermint are my favorite) and writing poems. When I have nothing else to do I literally crack open my journal and take at least 20 minutes to write about something...most likely a favorite moment with my love. Of course Kinfolk is one of my favorite reads and, since I've been too busy to read an actual book, it makes me feel 500x better since I'm reading at least something that is educating. A blanket and records are also necessary.


Yes this category was extremely necessary. Like I said before, I've been so dry this month it really has me :'( so I went to Lush to make my skin (and myself) feel a little bit better. Lush has tons of masks for dry skin specifically, but I decided to pick up the Cup O' Coffee one because my obsession with coffee has controlled my life. I'm in LOVE with the Bubblegum lip scrub because my lips were unbelievably chapped, but with this and my rose moisturizer it worked like a charm :") Now Adam doesn't have to suffer making out with gross lips hehe always good
