January Favorites!

We've officially bid adieu to the month of January, but our love for these fashion, beauty, food, home, media, and culture picks has just begun! Check out what we couldn't get enough of last month.

BCBG Melodi printed Relaxed-Fit Romper. I wore this romper for the Waste Management Open this past weekend and it was perfect! It was comfortable, slimming and super pretty! I loved the bold print and neckline but, more importantly, it made my legs look great too! I am normally a little self conscious in that area but it hangs beautifully.  T
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I raved about this in my "Winter Skin + Hair Savers" post, and I am still truly, madly, deeply in love. It's so gentle on my sensitive skin and the amount you get for the price is outstanding. L
Ewa Herzog Autum Winter '15-'16 Show. Very rarely do I ever want every single item in a collection, but these Ewa Herzog confections from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin are too scrumptious to pass up. Gorgeous lace and satin and a harmonious marriage of jewel tones and pastels make for a delightful lineup. L
Renee Rouleau Products. If you read my post, "New Year, New Skin Routine," then you know how obsessed I am with these products! I've been using them for the past month and my skin feels and looks amazing. It is so liberating to be able to run errands sans makeup! Check out her site, if you haven't already, and take the skin quiz to find a personalized list of products tailored to your skin needs.  T

Starbucks Siren Mermaid Mug. This gorgeous mug is from Starbucks' holiday collection. I am oh-so-grateful that my mom snatched one up the moment I called her about it, because now they are available on eBay for about twice the price. I've been using this mug daily since I got it in my stocking, and it's the absolute perfect size to tote around. I like to use two tea bags in this 12 oz. mug! L
Alter Eco Deep Dark Sea Salt. Melt-in-your-mouth delicious chocolate that's good for you, the planet, and easy on your wallet. There are no icky ingredients in this chocolate bar, just velvety smooth chocolate that makes for the perfect tea time snack. L
Amelia Highball Glass. In the past few weeks I haven't been able to keep myself off of Joss and Main, and these pretty highball glasses are a result of that fact! They came in a set of four, but I bought two sets because I've been wanting a cute and functional collection.... and four just didn't seem like enough! As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm on a gold kick so when I saw these cute gold poke-dot glasses, I had to have them. I also love how tall they are, because I drink a lot of water and constantly refilling my glass is a hassle. T
Snooze an AM Eatery. A couple of weeks ago a friend and I decided to have a fun girls day and we started at Snooze for brunch! Neither of us had been there before, so we thought we would try it out, and it was delicious! I ordered a mimosa + 3 egg omelette and my friend got a flavored margarita +  the Bella! Bella! Benny! I have to say that whenever I go to restaurants I hardly make a dent in my food because I normally eat small portions and feel full faster, but I ate everything on my plate! A must try if you're in the Tempe area. T

Gossip Girl. I was a huge fan of Gossip Girl when it originally aired so when I saw that the entire series was on Netflix, I couldn't resist. I am hooked once again and even more obsessed with Queen B than before! It's been fun to re-watch the show and pick up on things I missed and to view it with a different perspective. T
Eugenia Loli Collage Art. I am in love with this lady's gorgeous prints. They are totally fun and quirky with some really verging on flat-out bizarre. This print is "Dependable Relationship" from her "Oh, L'amour" section, which is 10% off through Valentine's Day! L
I Must Say: My Life As a Humble Comedy Legend by Martin Short. I've had quite the reading list as of late! I keep purchasing these memoir type of books because I find their lives and stories so fascinating. If you love to laugh, like I do, then you must be a fan of, or at least know, Martin Short. His book has a little bit of everything; it details his career, his childhood, and his family life with tons of crazy stories and passages about the famous characters he has created in between. There is plenty of celebrity name dropping too! Happy Reading, lovelies.  T
Fixer Upper. I'm secretly a grandma, so it will come as no surprise that aside from murder mysterious, you can find me blaring HGTV at all hours of the night. My new favorite show on HGTV is "Fixer Upper," which stars the cutest Texan couple and some seriously great renovations. Oh how I love shows about renovations! L
