January 2017 Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites

Don't be fooled by the pink, colour coordinated products shown below - I promise, this is not a Valentine's Day themed post - it is indeed everything I loved during the month of January.


Beauty:
EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm
I've had a bunch of EOS lip balms in the past, but they've never really blown me away. For some reason, this baby pink one seems to have a different formula. It's much more slick and oily, and keeps my lips hydrated for a really long time. I keep it in my bedside table and apply a generous coat before bed, helping my lips to feel nice and smooth the next morning.


Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask
This actually isn't mine. It came in the Good Night Kit, which I bought for my mom's stocking at Christmas. Hello my name is Kelly and I'm addicted to everything beauty related...it's extremely hard for me not to try something I haven't before. I've only snuck a few globs and if she didn't realize before, she'll definitely know after reading this post, therefore I'm going to have to buy my own because I do really like it.

Mostly I like the smell! The Multiberry Complex consists of raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries and wolfberries (whatever that is...). It smells like Campinos! It soothes any dryness overnight so I wake up to refreshed and plump looking skin. Plus it's pink...I like pink!!!


Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie
I'm really trying to use up some of my makeup lately, especially lipsticks that have been around for a while and are nearing their expiry date. It's a great way to save money, shopping my own collection, but it's also helped me rediscover some old favourites. Berry Smoothie is such an easy colour. It's not a whole lot different from my natural lip tone, and therefore can be applied on-the-go without a mirror, almost as if it's simply just a lip balm. It does add a slight rose-y hue and tons of shine - a result of the shea and coconut butter ingredients - which is major key during these cold winter months.

Pink Sugar Perfume
I sometimes wonder why I ever stop using this cotton candy/vanilla scented perfume, but I have so many other bottles and samples to try, that it sometimes gets pushed to the wayside. As you can see, there's not much left - maybe enough for a spritz or two - and maybe the fact that it is almost empty is reason why I hadn't used it in so long (I wanted to prolong its lifespan). I just love warm and cozy scent of Pink Sugar and until I find a new ride-or-die, this beauty is it for me!!!


St. Ives Soft & Silky Coconut & Orchid Body Lotion
There are two real reasons I like this body lotion (aside from the coconut-y, floral scent). It soaks into the skin really quick, and it has a pump! We all know I'm super lazy, so the fact that I don't even have to pick the bottle up to hydrate my entire body is a huge benefit. I leave this sitting on my bedside table and it has been a good reminder to lather up before bed.

Lifestyle:
A Series Of Unfortunate Events on Netflix
This show was my addiction during the month of January! It's nearly the exact same storyline as the 2004 movie featuring Jim Carrey, but the last few episodes seemed to delve much deeper and reveal even more secrets. I also love the cinematics. It's quirky!! Each scene and location is a bit dark and dreary, however the characters (especially the three Baudelaire children) are colourful and somewhat energetic. The dialogue seems a little more light-hearted, making it the perfect family-friendly show to watch. It will appeal to both kids and adults.



My only complaint is the season's cliffhanger ending. Just as truths seemed to have been revealed, a 'series of unfortunate' events occurred (go figure) and I found myself even more confused than in the beginning. I suppose this is what makes it a great show at the same time, however, because I have my fingers tightly crossed for a second season. I can't wait to see what happens next! 

OBVIOUSLY! I haven't been able to stop listening to both of these songs and I can't wait for the entire CD release.

What were some of your favourites for the first month of 2017? I hope the new year has treated you well thus far.
