January Favorites | 2015

Sunday, February 01, 2015

My first monthly favorites post of the year, how exciting/scary! Can't believe January has already gone by...just like that! I got this idea from YouTubers who would do their favorite beauty products of the month, but since I don't wear makeup I thought I'd put my own twist on the idea to reflect things I actually use! Let's get on with it, shall we?

Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding

Oh. My. God.

I instantly fell in love with this song the moment I heard it. I've actually been loving the 50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack so far! It's just so romantic and just warms me up inside...okay that just sounds weird but it's a really great song.

It also reminded me how awesome Ellie Goulding is! Her voice is very different, and this is by no means her best song, but it really hooked me in. Definitely was playing on repeat for a while before I just decided to add it to my "Car Jams" playlist...yes...I have  "Car Jams" playlist...

Have you heard any of the songs off the 50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack? Which one are you loving?

Can you tell how simple my style is? Haha. If you would even call it "style," I don't know. Anyways, I have been loving Kendall Jenner's style, not just this month, but all the time! She has her more eccentric outfits, but she also has these simple outfits, which I love! I've really been into the leather jeans/legging trend lately and the playsuit...<lots and lots of heart emojis>! As a college student, these are also effortless styles that I could easily wear to class, which is probably why I've been loving Kendall's looks this month. (: Which celeb style has been inspiring you this month?

Gotta show some blogger love. ;D

If you've read my Netflix post, this probably won't come as a shock to you, but my favorite movie I watched this month would have to be The Croods!

I was just so pleasantly surprised by how good it was! To be honest, I was a bit skeptical going into it but I definitely shouldn't have been! I'd heard that it was a good movie but I had to see for myself. (:

I've actually been watching a lot of animated movies this month including: Wreck it Ralph, How To Train Your Dragon (1 & 2), and The Croods, and I must say all of them were pretty good. (-:

The thing I liked the most about this movie was probably the comedy aspect and the different animals they created for the prehistoric age. It was so interesting to see the different animal combinations Dreamworks came up with for this movie. These little guys would have to be my favorite, they're so cute! ;D If you've watched the movie, what were your favorite animal combinations? If you haven't watched the movie...watch it! :D

I felt so lucky to have stumbled upon Ellie's blog, The Elle Next Door. She has an amazing writing style and you could can just tell what her personality is through her words, which can be quite a tough feat! I always catch myself smiling/laughing while I read through her posts, but while they are hilarious, they're also quite informative. She blogs about everything...well not EVERYTHING. You'll find fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and food posts on her blog and you'll probably fall in love with her blog, just like I did! :D

What have been some of your January favorites?
