Hey everyone! I hope all of you are have had a great start to the semester. My first day of school actually got cancelled because there was so much snow here, so that was really nice! At the end of October I wrote an “October Obsessions” post, and I had a lot of fun writing it. Since the end of January is nearing, I thought that I would do a “January favorites” post that consists of all of my favorite things during this month!

I have loved lots of things this month, and it is only fair that I share my favorite things with you guys, my readers! So, without further ado, here are all of my favorite things from January!

January Favorites


  • The zodiac palette by BH cosmetics

My sister got me this palette for Christmas, and boy is it GORGEOUS. Glittery eyeshadows are my absolute favorite, and the fact that this palette has glittery shadows AND matte shades AND a beautiful highlighter is amazing. I love it so much. It’s so pretty.



Please ignore the fact that one of the shades is cracked, I accidentally dropped the palette and that one broke. 🙁


  • Brush set by BH cosmetics 

She also got me a brush set to go with the palette. The brushes are SO soft and the rose gold and white combo kills me. They’re so pretty and amazing. I’ve never actually had a brush set, so that makes me love it even more.

School Stuff: 

  • My planner 

My friend Jewell talked me into getting this planner, and I’m so happy that I did. The fact that it is cute makes me want to plan literally every aspect of my life out just so that I can write in it.

  • The Kindle App 

Okay so I waited until the very last minute to get my books this semester, which is usually fine. However, one of my professors decided to give us two assignments over the 1st chapter in the 1st week of class, and I was basically panicking because I didn’t have my book yet and it wouldn’t be delivered until the day after the quiz was due.

Amazon was, once again, a lifesaver, and had a free 7 day trial for my textbook. So, I just downloaded the Kindle App on my computer and I was able to read the first chapter for free. Thank you, Amazon, for being the best thing in existence. I will love you forever.


  • The Magicians

While I was packing to come back to school, I decided to start this show on Netflix. It is SO good. I honestly want to binge watch it, but I have to restrain myself because, well, school. But, yeah, I can’t stop watching this show. If you haven’t seen it, you should definitely watch it.

  • Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 

I got a Switch for Christmas, and over Christmas break my sister and I played Mario Kart 8 on it pretty much nonstop. It took me back to my childhood where the only care in the world that we had was which one of us got to be princess peach.


  • Slime & ASMR Videos 

I’m totally addicted to slime and ASMR videos on Instagram. I need an intervention. They’re just so satisfying! All of my friends are addicted too, so they send me slime videos all the time, which only fuels my addiction. I guess I could have worse addictions though, right?
