How's the first of month of the year so far? It's a blast, for me, I must say. The latest things:
- Early this month, I got reconnected with my cousins in Isabela.
- I also made a FREE Printable 2016 Calendar you can download here!
- There was a sad 5-day life without our dogs, but now I'm happy they're back in my arms.
- I turned 22 last January 14!
- I made it to the Make it Blissful Instameet / Kendo Creative's Soft Opening.
What's also good in January are these favorites
I've been loving for the most part of the month. I don't post monthly favorites regularly, but I got some things to share this time since we're all about beginnings, trying new things out and whatnot.
Here are the random things I'm currently loving:
The Daykeeper 2016 (C'mon read my post about it!) - Can I just say how much I am ecstatically enjoying this
? I get excited every day in writing down my agenda and one-liner thanksgivings. The photos, quotes, prompts–I love everything in it. datebook
Meditations For Women Who Do Too Much - This is my first ever meditation book. My boyfriend had his own and is kind enough to share it with me, but I needed something I could really relate to (btw, it's about weight loss. Seriously, I don't need it. Just the good thoughts
coz your homie's petite) so I bought this. It's in my morning routine to read a page a day and it helps a lot in shaping my energy throughout the day.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser (sample size) - One of the things I received from the Love Box giveaway of Make it Blissful (read my entry here). I use this after removing my makeup because I feel like it cleanses my face thoroughly and
refreshes it at the same time. I might just get a full size when I already can pay the price. Ooh, that rhymes.
Estée Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator - This helped even out some of my face's imperfections. It also brightens it up, giving my stubborn combination skin a healthy glow. Aside from the sleek packaging, I like that it's lightweight and it's easily absorbed into the skin. Sadly, according some comments I read, it's now discontinued.
Mac Ruby Woo - It's only on my wish list until my boyfriend gave this as a Christmas gift. With the quality, longevity and color payoff, I don't mind it being so dry on the lips really. It sparked my love for matte red lipsticks.
Cetaphil Restoraderm Eczema Calming Body Moisturizer - It's only two years ago that I learned that I have this skin condition called eczema. It's sad, I know, that's why I'm trying my best to improve my skin care habits. I am really loving this one from Cetaphil. It's soothing and moisturizing. Being steroid and Paraben free is also a plus. No excuses for not repurchasing. Day and night I apply this, and whenever I feel so itchy and dry.
Messy Bessy Linen Spray - Another one I got from the Love Box giveaway. Having dogs in the house and sleeping with them, our room (the one I share with my sister) could get smelly at times. I spray this all over the room – from curtains, bed sheets, basically in any spot my arms could reach – and it's indeed a great refresher!
I'm happy I got to share these little things with you! Do you have anything on your favorites list this month?
