January 2017 Favorites

Saturday, January 28, 2017

          Hey, fashionistas!  I am starting my 2017 monthly favorites with something sweet, a couple of baubles, and a whole lot of glitter!  Here's what I have been loving in the month of January!
        Choosing a new Kate Spade planner at the start of a new year has become a tradition of mine over the past couple of years.  As a visual person, cute stationary and a chic planner are important tools for a productive year.  I find that I am more apt to get work done and procrastinate less if I keep them all written down in an aesthetically pleasing notebook.  Besides the fabulous cover, I love the Kate Spade planners because there is always enough space for my daily goals and plans.  Don't you just hate it when you purchase a planner that only provides you with three to five short lines to write down your daily schedule?  If you are a busy woman who needs to have a planner that is not only beautiful but also practical, this one is perfect! 

        In my collection, or "family of shoes" as I like to call it, the pair of heels I have worn the most are my Nine West gold glitter sandals.  I danced in them all night at my high school graduation party, wore them to countless parties, pranced in them for a few outfit posts, and strutted in them for a handful of shopping trips.  This probably explains why after five years, they are starting to fall apart.  Maybe it's the nostalgia or my love for glitter, but I feel like my shoe collection in not complete without a pair of gold glittery heels.  Since my ride or die sparkly heels are starting to hit the dust, I ordered myself a similar pair from Topshop.  I don't know about you, but I feel like every girly girl should own a pair of glitter heels!  Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!

         Going along with the gold and sparkly theme, I purchased these earrings from Baublebar.com and they are gorgeous!  The tulle baubles are exquisite on their own, but paired with a tulle skirt and high heels? AMAZING!  As for the gold earrings, I've been trying to find any excuse to wear them with practically every outfit because they are easy on the ears, fairly light in weight and are incredibly fun and surprisingly versatile.  

         To end things on a sweet note . . . (wink, wink) . . . I have been indulging in these Charbonnel et Walker Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles.  They are divine!  These truffles are the perfect sweets to treat yourself with- well my favorite way, anyway- after dinner or after a long day at work.  It adds just the perfect amount of sweetness in my day!  Valentine's Day is coming up and I think a box of these would make any girl swoon!     

      Well, those are my January favorites!  I would love to know what items you have been loving, so feel free to share them in the comments below.  Wishing you lots of happiness and joy!  As always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
