December Favorites

                    

This is my first ever "favorites" post so bear with me.
But I did want to share with you some of my favorite things/products/etc from December.

Favorite Makeup:
Sephora Bronzer: I use color Fiji
I've always used either Nars or Benefit's Hoola for my bronzer but I decided to try something new when a friend suggested this bronzer from the Sephora Collection. And I must say, I LOVE it. It's affordable, it isnt too shimmery and it's a very subtle bronzer which I like.

Marc Jacobs Blush: I use color 506 Flesh & Fantasy
This blush is the perfect shade of pink. It's subtle and gives you that perfect winter flush. This was my first ever Marc Jacobs makeup purchase and I'm not gonna lie, the product is worth the price.

Favorite Recipes:
Skinny Taste's chicken enchiladas:
All year long I have LOVED so many of Skinny Taste's recipes. I would say about 90% of the new recipes I tried this year were all from her website. I'm planning to pick up her new cookbook soon and try recipes from there. My absolute favorite so far have been her chicken enchiladas. So easy and so yummy! I always buy an already made rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and make Will shred the chicken for me. Then the rest is easy! Helpful tip: put less of the chipotle chilies in adobe sauce that it calls for. They come out SUPER spicy.

Favorite Hair Product
Dry Shampoo: J Beverly Hills
I'm always on the hunt for a really good dry shampoo. For some reason I just can't seem to find one that does what it's supposed to do. My roots always end up being flat and stickier after using dry shampoo. Or maybe it'll work for 10 minutes but after that it's just back to oily roots. Luckily a friend gave me this one as a Christmas gift and I am loving it! It takes the oil out of my roots and gives me really good volume that lasts throughout the day.

Favorite Drink
Starbucks' Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino:
I don't drink frappuccino's that often because I know they are a pretty fattening drink, but I did treat myself to a peppermint mocha this December since it was the holidays. haha And oh my gosh, it tasted like Christmas in a cup! This definitely became my favorite drink of December. With every sip, I felt the Christmas spirit.

Favorite Skin Care
Ole Henriksen's Power Bright 3 step Professional Brightening System
This was one of my favorite purchases of the year. I bought this right before my wedding to really brighten up my skin. It's a 3 step process that leaves your skin feeling SO soft afterwards. My skin looked brighter and glowed after using this. Here's a little tip: each pod has a lot of product in it, you can use the pods twice instead of just once. I closed the plastic lid back over the pod and taped it shut so it wouldn't dry up, then used it again a few days later. You can get more for your money this way!
