January Favorites 2013

I decided to share my monthly favorites with you. So here are my favorite things of January.
Beauty favorites:Versace - Bright Crystal
This perfume has been my 'signature-scent' for over five years. But last year, when my fifth or sixth bottle of it was empty, i decided to try another one. So i bought Chanel - Chance eau tendre. The Chanel was is amazing too, but i missed my Versace one. So this Christmas, my parenst gave me a new bottle! Now i have both of them and that makes me a very happy girl. Because, as Coco Chanel said “A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future.”
Revlon - Lip butter in Berry Smoothie
When the lipbutters came out in the USA about a year ago, i immediately orderd five(!) colors on ebay. From the beginning, Berry Smoothie has been my favorite. It is the perfect purple color for me for the fall and winter.
Rimmel - Match Perfection foundation
I watch a lot of youtube-beauty-guru-video's and when i heard FleurdeForce talk about this foundation, i knew i wanted to get it and try it myself. And i have to say, since i bought it last November, i have worn it almost every day and i like it a lot, because it gives great light to medium coverage.
Clinique - Take the day of, make up remover
I practically wear waterproof mascara every day and my Nivea facial wipes were ok, but i wanted something that took my eye make-up off better. So i bought this Clinique one and OMG! it takes like three seconds to remove the waterproof mascara. Love it!
Burt's Bees - Tinted lip balm in Hibiscus
Last november i bought the Burt's Bees Honey lip balm and because i liked it so much (and heard NikkiPhillippi take about it), i bought the Burt's Bees Tinted lip balm in Hibiscus. This lip balm is very moisturizing and has a nice medium-colored tint to it. Perfect for those days you don't want to wear heavy make-up.
Essie - Bahama Mama nailpolish
When everybody started talking about this nailpolish, i knew i wanted it too. So for my birthday last October, i asked for it...and i felt i love with it. It is the color i wore the most last 3-4 months. I also have a blogpost on it.
Maybelline - Color tattoo in On and On Bronze
For about a year, i only wore my MAC - Naked Lunch eyeshadow. But when i bought this Color tattoo last September, i forgot to use the MAC one. That's how much i love the Color tattoo!
L'Oreal - Infallible eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige
I bought this eyeshadow to wear together with my color Tattoo in On and On Bronze. I wear it in the inner corner of my eye (and the Color tattoo all over the lid).

Fashion favorites:
My UGG boots in Chestnut

I have been wearing my UGG's almost every day for the last two months, since we got a lot of snow in The Netherlands.
My beige H&M sweater
I bought it about two weeks ago and it already is my go-to sweater.

Other favorites:
- I got my Masters-degree in Dutch Law!
- This month i enjoyed reading my 'I heart'-books by Lindsey Kelk.
- And i could finally watch all my favorite tv-series again! (PLL, HOD, TCD etc.)
