December Favorites

Happy New Year Everyone!

Sorry for the delay in posts, I've had a pretty productive winter intercession so far. My friend and I took a trip to our local bookstore to pick up some books at the start of break. It's been forever since I had the time to do some leisurely reading and it feels good to read something that isn't a textbook, I set a goal on GoodReads and once the semester starts I hope to squeeze in at least one extra book a month. I'm currently reading Emma by Jane Austen.

Another friend taught me to knit this month! I'm obsessed with purchasing yarn now, and I have a few projects in mind. I began knitting a scarf from baby blanket yarn, it's coming along and seems super cozy!

In other news I'm on the lookout for some brands/Etsy shops etc. to possibly collaborate with, if anyone has anything in mind please leave a comment in the contact form in the sidebar.



And now for what has been promised, Here are my December favorites:

  1. Boye Aluminum Knitting Needles; My size 7 needles are my favorite. I have an obsession with rose gold/copper tones at the moment so I really love these. Eventually the color will rub off from use, but these are gorgeous. I even got a basket to match, and hold all my yarn. 
  2. Lush Tea Tree Toner; This has made such a huge difference in my skincare routine, I make sure I never run out now. 
  3. Bûche de Noël cleanser; I love the scent of this cleanser, it reminds me of Christmas. When my holiday shifts ended at Lush I made sure to pick up a container. This cleanser is super gentle, yet exfoliating honestly everything I could ever want in a cleanser. 
  4. Santa Lip Scrub; another +Lush Cosmetics holiday exclusive, it tastes like cherry cola and leaves your lips feeling baby smooth, which I'm sure is something everyone wants in the winter months. 
  5. Trader Joe's  Nourish Moisturizer; I've been struggling to find other cruelty free skincare lines outside of Lush, which is disappointing since I'm such a strong believer in not testing on animals. I found this at my local Trader Joes and decided to give it a try. I found antioxidant rich products have alway been beneficial to my skin and for around $7 you can't go wrong.
