December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Music

This month I’ve pretty much been exclusively listening to Christmas music.

  • Glee Christmas
  • Pentatonix (My all time favorite for Christmas Music) https://www.youtube.com/user/PTXofficial
  • Any Christmas Movie tunes

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Youtubers

I love discovering new youtubers and in December I found several that I have since become obsessed with!

  • Hayley Paige – She is a beauty/fashion blogger and youtuber and is also a new mom! Her videos are so genuine and she is so enjoyable to watch!
  • Kayln Nicholson – She is also a beauty/fashion/lifestyle youtuber. She is a vegan and lives a very healthy lifestyle and almost always has such a positive outlook on life. She is literal goals and I love all of her videos!
  • MissRemiAshten – Remi is a lifestyle youtuber living in LA and I can’t believe it took me this long to discover her channel. She is hilarious and such a sweetheart. Her vlogs are especially something I love watching!

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Blogs

December was an extremely busy month for me so I didn’t spend very much time reading blogs. However Hayley Paige has a blog and I have been obsessed with it!

  • www.dailydoseofdarling.com This blog is created by Hayley Paige and I love reading her posts. The aesthetic of her website is so feminine and calming! She usually has posts about fashion and beauty, but as a recent new mom she now has many posts surrounding little Annabelle as well. I highly recommend checking out her blog!

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Apps

I am always looking for new apps to entertain me or make my life easier! Besides the obvious (social media) here are my favorite new apps that I discovered in December!

  • Amateur Surgeon 4 – This game is hilarious and fun! Its kind of like a strategy game, but doesn’t involve very much thinking. The games are short so it doesn’t require a lot of time commitment. It also isn’t a game that expects you to log on multiple times a day (I try to avoid those as they tend to take over my life).
  • Duolingo – I started learning Spanish through college and Duolingo has been such a huge help! It gives me extra practice and I am able to compete with my friends as well. They have a ton of different languages on there! I don’t recommend it by itself to learn a language, but it is a great additional tool.
  • Quizlet – This is a site where you can create flashcards! It has been a huge help to me through out college and I recommend it to everyone in school. They also have an app so you can practice on the go while you have a little downtime.
  • Pocket Points – I also recommend this app to everyone in college! While you are in class, turn this app on, and lock your phone. You earn points for being off of your phone during class time. You can then use the points to get huge discounts at select stores (online and local) and sometimes even free products!

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Makeup Products

  • Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser – I have been loving this affordable primer from Maybelline! I have mainly oily skin and large pores and this does such a good job!
  • Naked Palette – A little bit of a throwback, but I have been using this palette on a daily basis this month! Loving the colors!

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Skin/Hair Care

  • Cetaphil Lotion – This lotion is so affordable and does such a great job. I used to use it and stopped for a while. Started using it again recently and I don’t know why I ever stopped!
  • Not Your Mother’s Leave in Conditioner – I have tried to many leave in conditioners and this is my favorite so far! It leaves my hair feeling so soft and smells amazing!
  • Organix Moroccan Oil – This oil is inexpensive and lasts forever! It has done absolute wonders for my hair and split ends, especially during the dry winter!

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Food/Drinks

  • Egg, Ham, and Cheese on Toast – This has been a go to for me in the morning. Easy, quick, and pretty healthy!
  • Homemade Chili – I love soup and homemade chili is perfect in the winter time! I found a recipe I love, let me know if you would like me to share it with you!
  • Easy Berry Smoothie (Recipe coming soon) – I LOVE smoothies, especially if they are cheap and easy to make. I often don’t have time for breakfast so this is perfect for on the go!

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Quotes

  • “Find something that makes you happy and use it to make others happy!” – This quote has been one of my favorites for the last couple years, but it continued to pop up in my mind a lot during December while I made some tough decisions. I try to live by this quote everyday!
  • Matthew 6:34 ” Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – I made a lot of life changing decisions this month and many caused a lot of unknown for my future. When I read this verse, it makes me feel so much better.

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: Podcasts

  • NPR Politics – NPR helped me stay sane through out this crazy election. They kept me informed on all of the new things happening and they were easy and fun to listen to. HIGHLY recommend them!
  • Grownups read things they wrote as kids – This is the funniest podcast I have found so far! Constantly laughing out loud while I listen to this.

December 2016 Monthly Favorites: TV Shows & Movies

  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – This show was hard for me to watch at first, but now I love it. It is weird and sometimes insulting, but I like watching it when I want a laugh.
  • Gilmore Girls – I finally started watching this series and I’m obsessed! It’s the perfect show to have on in the background while I do a little work.
  • Once Upon A Time – This show is so good! It’s definitely one that you need to pay attention to so I only put it on when I’m not doing anything else. I love it!
