One of my favorite things to watch on YouTube are the monthly favorites videos from my favorite vloggers.  I always find it so interesting to hear what others have used and loved all month long.  It’s always a means to which I find new products that I never knew existed and, in turn, find new products that I love and adore myself.  January brought with it a slew of favorites for me.  These are all products that I was obsessed with for the month of January.  These are the items I’m using and loving that are currently giving me major heart eyes!

1.  Christian Louboutin Lipstick:

My husband gifted this lipstick to me for Christmas.  I had lusted after this for over a year and couldn’t bring myself to purchase it.  I’ll be honest, the price is up there for a lipstick.  However, it has become my go to this past month.  I own the color “just nothing” and it really is the perfect nude!  The buttery texture keeps me coming back for more!  I am dying for more colors!

2.  Essie Gel Couture Nail Polishes:

 These Essie polishes are heavenly.  Their neutral colors and long lasting ability keep me coming back for more.  The new “Ballet” collection is full of beautiful neutrals that are must haves.  I love the fact that I can paint my nails once a week with this polish and expect it to last a full week!

3.  Byredo Gypsy Water Perfume:

My Husband also purchased Gypsy Water for me for Christmas after I had lusted after it for ages.  Every single time we went to the city I made an effort to try it on and smell it.  It’s such a unique fragrance that you won’t smell on everyone (I hate when that happens!).  I’m smitten with it!

4.  Vintage Chanel Small Flap Handbag:

 This vintage Chanel piece joined my collection a few months ago but I never really wore her until recently.  It’s no secret that I love a neutral colored outfit.  I must say, I completely adore the pop of color this little red bag adds to an otherwise minimalistic outfit!  I’ve realized that Vintage Chanel is so much better than the new versions (I’ll have a post coming soon discussing why!).  It’s hard to believe that this bag is over 20 years old!  It’s safe to say I’m obsessed!

6.   Banana Republic Fur Stole (here; similar here):

If you’ve been following along with my accounts lately, you’ve surely noticed that I’m OBSESSED with fur!   I love the opulence and chicness that it adds to a basic outfit.  This fur stole has the ability to transform any outfit to phenomenal at lightening speed.  This has become my staple in my wardrobe at least once a week!

7.  Pottery Barn Fur Trimmed Bathrobe:

There’s really only one thing that I truly enjoy about waking up early… the ability to put on my favorite robe and enjoy a nice cup of coffee.  This robe makes waking up much easier.  It’s soft, cozy, and super chic!  I love lounging around in it a little extra during the weekend!

8.  Goodnight Macaroon Over the Knee Boots (search “Carina” for these exact ones):

I’ve been dying for the Stuart Weitzman Highland boots.  However, I just couldn’t bring myself to pull the trigger on them because they are a bit pricey!  These boots are an amazing dupe!  I’ve worn them at least 3 days a week for all of January.  They’re good quality, under $100, and actually stay up on my legs!  They’re so good, I actually own them in two colors!

9.  Club Monaco Coat:

This coat is quite possibly my favorite of all time.  The Chanel-like details are utterly swoon worthy!  I find myself wearing this coat at least once every single week.  Honestly, it’s one of those pieces that I have to tell myself to take a break from and not wear every day.  It makes me feel completely chic and pulled together every time I slip it on.  The best part is that it is currently on sale!

What were some of your favorites from January?  What products do I need to check out?  Give me recommendations!
