December Favorites

It's hard to believe that December (and 2014, for that matter) are coming to a close.  I'll save the sentimental musings for another post.  December was quite the month, between returning to school from Thanksgiving Break, wrapping up the fall semester of my senior year, and coming home for Christmas break, I was all over the place.

Because of the chaos, I embraced routine to keep me sane.  With that (and the start of exams), I always seem to fall into a rut when it comes to outfits.  However, this year, I also embraced this rut with a sort of uniform.  I would be remiss if I did not mention a few of the pieces that made it into my winter uniform.

Needless to say, Bean Boots and cozy camp socks are the perfect combination for those chilly days when you don't really want to think about your outfit.  Also, I feel slightly obligated to wear my Bean Boots since there are 100,000 people still waiting for theirs that are backordered and I have two pairs.  With a fun plaid flannel and a pair of jeans (or leggings if I was really desperate), exam season was painless (and comfortable!)  To add some interest to my slightly boring outfits, an arm party was a necessity.  Alex + Ani bracelets won this round because they're easy to wear and fun to layer.  I received the NYC Subway Token bracelet and an Alex + Ani giftcard  for Christmas... can't wait to add a few more bracelets to my collection!

With the winter weather, my skin and lips have been insanely dry.  I've had to switch to a new moisturizer, the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, and at night I've started using Vaseline Lip Therapy to keep my cracking lips at bay.  Both products are reasonably priced and do the job.

What have you been loving this month?


  1. I am all about the moisturizers this month too!

  2. Alex and Ani bracelets are my new obsession!! I got my first two for Christmas, and I can't wait to start adding to my collection! Which ones do you have!?
