January Favorites

I thought that it would be fun to do a favorites post every month or two! It will be a great way to tell you about some of the things that I'm loving. It won't just be fashion; I'll add things like music, verses, food, beauty, and shows. Here is what I've been loving this month:

-This season of Pretty Little Liars! I have been obsessed with the show since the first season. I had gone without it since October, so I was super excited when it premiered again this month! It's been so dramatic and surprising so far, and I just love guessing what will happen and watching it. I definitely recommend that you watch it on my fave, ABC Family.
-Burt's Bees Cuticle Cream is just so good. In the winter my cuticles get so dry that they're just all cracked and nasty. I put this on right before I go to sleep, and when I wake up my cuticles actually look like normal skin. It's also great for making your nails less brittle, and I'm a fan of the scent!
- I've been obsessed with my black combat boots ever since I got them for my birthday in October. They go perfectly with every outfit. I wear them with pretty much anything, from jeans to leggings to my uniform skirt.

-For music I've been listening to the band the xx. I'm a fan of indie/alt music, and they're one of my favorite indie pop bands. Their music is pretty chill, and it has a subtle sort of electronic sound. My favorite songs by them are "Shelter", "Angels", and "Stars". Comment any of your favorite bands or songs so I can check them out!
-A book of the Bible I just keep going back to is 1 John. It is just such a good book, and it's full of life changing advice! The book is full of wisdom about fitting in, love, and pleasing the Lord. You should read it.
-I wear my grey knit infinity scarf from Savoir-Faire all of the time! It's a great way to stay warm while looking still looking cute. I wear it to school to make my uniform not look so "uniform-ish", and I will wear it to make a tee and leggings seem like an outfit.

-My last favorite is this Maude aztec print cardigan. I featured it in my last outfit post, and it is just such an adorable piece! My mom gave it to me for Christmas, and I have worn it so many times since then. Every time I wear it people compliment me on it! You can wear it over a simple dress, jeans, or just leggings and a tee for a cute and cozy look.
