January Recent Purchases

It's been awhile since I've shared a recent purchases post since trying to recover financially from the Christmas season.  But good news...everything here was under $25! 

My skin has been extra dry this winter season and my usual moisturizer (here) just hasn't been able to keep up.  I've been wanting to try Embryolisse for over a year, so when this European, cult favorite
product popped up on Birchbox, I used some extra points and snatched it up!  
I've been loving it in the morning as a base for my makeup.   

I've also been wanting to try a face oil and Josie Maran's Argan Oil seemed like the 
perfect choice since it's all natural and jam packed with vitamin E.  Since I wasn't sure how 
my face would react, so I bought the .5 ounce bottle which was only $14!  

Oh how I love my lip butters and the new Maybelline Color Whispers do not disappoint!  I picked up Oh La Lilac, Pink Possibilities and Petal Rebel for $5 bucks each.  I'm going to have a really hard time not buying the rest of the colors! 

This floral tunic from Target looks way better in person (think bright colors!) but I think it will look great with leggings and blazers come spring.  

I was SO happy when Forever 21 came out with this tusk necklace! My girl Gwyneth has been sporting one for a long time so you know I had to copy her look!  

I picked up this neon duffle for my upcoming trip to Mexico.  I think it will look really cute with an all white outfit or all black ensemble.  



  1. Hi Kim! Loved reading about your new purchases. Are the Maybelline Color Whispers pretty much a dupe of the lip butters? Thanks!


    1. Hi, Lacey! Yes, they are very similar in terms of color/pigment but I actually like the feel of the Color Whispers better! They seem more moisturizing than the Revlon Lip Butters.



Thanks for reading!
