My Favorites - January 2019 | By Alana Robin
Somehow, I blinked and missed the entire month of January! I cannot believe it is already a whole month into 2019, but let me tell you, the year is off to a strong start. Today, I will be rounding up some of my favorite things from the month.
January's Favorite Food / Restaurants
I loved visiting this restaurant when I was in Miami last month. The food and the ambiance were so much fun and so unlike anything I can get in New York City. For more about my experience there, check out my weekend in Miami Travel Guide.
I absolutely loved the brunch at Rustic Table! It was all the best brunch classics with Mediterranean twists.
January's Favorite Beauty Products
This nail polish is amazing. I recently stopped getting gel manicures (talked about why in my budgeting post here!) and have found my saving grace. I personally cannot stand chipped nails and love the look of gel, so being about to get this at home, without breaking the bank, has made me a happy camper this year. I bought a few colors all for less than one salon gel manicure!
My best friend told me about this bad boy, and it is a game changer. I have wavy hair that dries slooooowly. This dryer takes it to a sleek looks so quickly and easily! I tend to do a little touch up with my straightener after this, but do find it to get my hair most of the way to ready in under 5 minutes.
Another favorite of mine is the Glossier concealer. When I first got it, it reminded me of the Mac paint pot. I adore it though! it blends easily and has good natural coverage.
January's Favorite Fashion
The polar vortex is here...and I have been loving this Zip Up from Old Navy to stay cozy in my room. I live in an older building, so it is freezing! This Zip Up has been a lifesaver and is so incredibly soft.
I have been wearing my earmuffs everyday this month! I am a huge fan because they are warm, but don't leave me showing up to work with hat hair.
January's Favorite Inspiration
I loved this article this month. I think it does a stellar job distilling how we overanalyze situations and let them feel more stressful than they should. It is definitely worth a quick read and has really stuck with me throughout the month.
Thanks for reading! My goal is to do this at least every other month this year, so let me know if you liked it and would like more content like this!
