Kate Moss by Mario Testino

After what felt like an eternity, the first month of the year is finally over. To me, January always feels like a test-run of sorts—one month to get your sh*t together and get back on the right track. 

So, with the help of some killer beauty and fashion products, I was able to survive the stresses of last month whilst looking my best. For your convenience I’ve compiled a list of my top 5 January essentials to help you get through February. Enjoy!

1. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre
­This perfume is self-described by Chanel as, “A fruity-floral fragrance that mingles the radiance of grapefruit-quince harmony with the softness of jasmine and the smoothness of white musk notes.” Personally I can’t imagine what that would smell like just by reading it, so as someone who uses this perfume daily, I’d describe it as feminine, fresh and floral.

2. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb
Where do I even begin with this product? Since the moment I bought it—I genuinely don’t think I’ve used any other lip product. Not only was this a staple product for January, but I would definitely say that it was one of my top products of last year. Not to mention everything that Rihanna touches is gold…

3. MARC JACOBS BEAUTY: Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer
To be completely honest, I’ve tried a plethora of different primers and none of them have ever seemed to do the trick for me—until now. Although I was discouraged by its $55 (CAD) price tag, I’m instantly drawn to any beauty product with coconut in it. Me, being too cheap to spend the money myself, asked for this as a gift for Christmas gift and I haven’t stopped using it since I got it! This product is definitely my secret to smooth, dewy, long-lasting makeup.

4. Cabbie Hats
As pictured above by the legendary Kate Moss, I could not have lived without cabbie hats this month—or this entire fall/winter season for that matter. Being an avid hat wearer, cabbie hats are a nice change from my usual baseball hats and toques.

5. Layered Necklaces
Again, more Christmas gifts that I’ve made use of in January. I always wear a plain necklace (currently a gothic font letter L) but layering different necklaces and chains of different lengths makes all the difference to my outfit.

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned until the end of this month to see my favourite products from February.

Love, LAUR
