Wow! It's the second month of 2016 and I'm still writing 2015 in my notebooks. How did we get here so fast? I wanted to share some of my favorite things from the previous month with you lovely people. It has been a while since I've done a monthly favorites and I have no excuse for that besides pure laziness. Sorry!

Let's get right to it!


- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you should know my favorite author is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I have been reading The Thing Around Your Neck for a couple of months mainly because I read it whenever I was traveling. Now I'm finally done! This book is a collection of short stories and I love how Adichie breaths live into each character even if though the stories are short, you build quick relationships and share emotions with the characters.



2. Grey Coat // SheIn 

I've had this coat for other a year now but  I really got my money's worth during January. I didn't wear it as much when I first got it and I'm not sure why. It has been one of my go-to coats this winter. I love the mix of black, white and grey. My favorite combination and if you through in a hint of gold it would be perfect! 








I have been on a hunt for a pair of casual Nike. During Black Friday I went shopping with some friends and came across these gorgeous navy classics. I have been wearing them nonstop ever since. I'm actually afraid I'm starting to wear them out. 


4. Antique Velvet Lipstick + Chestnut Lip Pencil // MAC Cosmetics 

I always thought MAC products were overhyped and overrated. Oh boy, was I wrong! I heard a lot great things about their lipsticks and I decided to try them out just to see what the fuss was about. I can officially say I am a MAC groupie and I don't care who knows! The pictures below show the products with lipgloss and without.

5. Bryson Tiller ~ Just Another Interlude

Bryson Tiller, you have done it again! I am in love with his sound and flow. His music has blown up since the last time I mentioned him and I am so happy with all the fame and recognition he is getting. This song has been on repeat for the whole month of January entering February. I am not sick of it yet and I don't think I ever will.

  2. I love this mix of favorites. I need to read some of Chimamanda's work, she's been on my list for ages! Also, how was your experience shopping with Shein? I'm always hesitant about those sites, any buying tips?

    1. You should definitely pick up one of her books, she's amazing! SheIn is either a hit or a miss. I love their prices but make sure you look up their sizing before buying anything. I hope that helps.
