January Favorites & Giveaway Winner!

I had a handful of favorites in January (I know, how did February get here so quickly?) that I'm excited to share with you. So my dearies, grab a cup of whatever you like to drink most and a notepad just in case you see something that you're interested in trying out yourself!

1) Fruit Punch Baby Lips by Maybelline
I heard about these and wanted to try them but it wasn't until I realized I forgot my make-up bag on the way to work that I ran into Target and grabbed one. I needed some sort of lip balm STAT! I left the store paying just $2.99 for it. The packaging is super cute and the color is very pretty! I don't think it's the most moisturizing product but it definitely did the job!

2) Cupcakes & Cashmere by Emily Schuman
My dearest husband knew I wanted this book and gave it to me for my Birthday. I've thoroughly enjoyed flipping through the pages and reading Emily's tips and tricks on fashion, food, decorating and entertaining. The book is seriously beautiful and if you're an avid reader of the Cupcakes & Cashmere blog like I am (did I tell you I recently met her at Disneyland!?), I highly suggest you pick this one up!

3) Mint Scarf from Forever 21 (Similiar)
Mint has been a popular color for a while now and I've always liked it. For some reason it took me so long to actually bring the color into my closet. I didn't actually purchase something mint colored until December 2012 and then my parents gifted me this lovely scarf shortly after. It's been one of my favorites ever since! I'm obsessed and I hope to get more mint pieces for the Spring/Summer. You'll be seeing this scarf soon in an outfit post ;)

4) Cherub #23 by Flirt! Cosmetics
I picked up this pinky-nude lipstick years ago at Kohl's and recently started using it on a weekly basis. Strange how that happens huh? It's a very angelic sort of color, especially once I top it off with my MAC lipglass in Dreamy B11.

5) Knackered by butterLONDON
If you're a regular reader you probably knew this would make it on my January favorites list. I was eyeing this nail polish for a long time and was super excited when Jason gave it to me for Christmas! The quality is amazing and it looks stunning in person! You can find pictures of me wearing it here.

6) Chapped Hands Remedy by C.O. Bigelow
This product is a non-greasy, medicated formula that heals and hydrates ultra-dry hands with concentrated glycerin. I was out of this for a while but as the temperature dropped I had to go purchase it again (my hands were so dry, they hurt!) It works very well and I think it's the best solution for dry hands. I usually put it on before bed or while I'm at work.

Share with me what your favorite items and products were last month!
