Although I’m sure most of you are astounded that January is finally coming to an end, I am confused as to why it isn’t May already. I feel that 2018 is off to a very slow start, but hey, at least we can say 1/12 of 2018 is done. Let’s not even think about how small that really is.
This month new obsessions were born with things I used/wore and I thought I would share a few of them with. So here we go…
App of the Month
Definitely, my favorite app of the month is Twitter. I’m not usually a huge Twitter user, but it is honestly one of the greatest places to casually connect with other people that you share common interests with (Let’s be Twitter friends @lookshecanblog!). I have connected with so many other bloggers this month just by participating in Twitter chats.
My favorite has to be the #GRLPOWR chats hosted by @GRLPOWRCHAT. They have a different blogger host the chats each time and it is such an amazing thing to be a part of.
If you saw my last post, you know I’m really starting to get into bullet journaling, so of course, I had to mention it. I got my bullet journal on Amazon and I’ve been pinning ideas and inspiration on Pinterest all month so you can also take a look at that board here.
I’ve also been loving my Stabilo pens. These are the point 88 ones and I found this 25 pack on Amazon. They write so well and if you are into calligraphy or even just writing super tiny you would really like these too.
Speaking of calligraphy, I am definitely not an expert and mine don’t really look that great yet, but I’m getting into it.
Music of the Month
Album: Back From the Edge by James Arthur
I am fully aware this album has been out forever in the music world, but I just recently listened to the entire thing and WOW. He has such an emotional and powerful sound. I currently have it on repeat.
My favorite songs: “Back from the Edge”, “I Am”, “Safe Inside”, “Train Wreck”, “Skeletons”
Other songs I’ve been loving this month:
+ Perfect Duet by Ed Sheeran feat. Beyoncé
+ Dear World by Echosmith
+ El Perdón by Nicky Jam feat. Enrique Iglesias
+ Freedom by Dierks Bentley
Dorothy Parker Quotes
I had to do a project over the lovely Dorothy Parker for school and I fell in love with her wit.
Dorothy Parker: A Short Summary in Quotes
“His ignorance was an Empire State Building of ignorance. You had to admire it for its size.”
“I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.”
“Youth, it was a way I had, to do my best to please. And change with every passing lad to suit his theories. But now I know the things I know and do the things I do, and so if you not like me so, to hell, my love, with you.”
“Women and elephants never forget.”
“I shall stay the way I am because I do not give a damn.”
“I prefer not to think before speaking. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.”
“That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went including here, it was against her better judgement.”
What a gal.
January Style Picks
I used to be so phone-case-crazy, but since I developed the fear of dropping my phone and shattering the screen, having a more protective case is more important to me and since those are little more pricey, it has since lead me to stop buying so many random phone cases (I was that girl who even had a Christmas phone case; actually think I had two… It was bad).
I have had this phone for almost a year now and have only had my black Otterbox phone case. Needless to say, I am shocked at this newfound self-control. So I decided after having the same phone case for this long to get myself a new one.
I found this beautiful eyelash case by Sonix at TJ Maxx for only $10 so I thought at that price it was too good to pass up.
If you have been keeping up with me on Instagram, @lookshecanblog, I have been living in this sweater I picked up at TJ Maxx. It’s a super cute gray sweater with these pink and blue flowers.
I feel like this sweater just gives off some super cool retro-vintage vibes. I am plant-obsessed and so I am in love with the earthy, but cute, vibes this sweater gives off.
I also haven’t seen a lot of sweaters around like this one. It’s definitely got that old style look to it, which just happens to be my favorite look.
I love how there are so many ways you can style sweaters. My favorite way to style this sweater is with mom jeans or a denim skirt with either boots or colorful shoes, like my pink Puma sneakers.
I will be sharing my recent beauty favorites later on this month, so keep an eye out for that.
