January Highlights

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! 
Today I am doing my monthly favorites a little differently. Instead of posting about what products and clothing pieces I have been loving for the past month, I thought it would be fun to share some highlights and things that happened in the past month. Kind of like a monthly recap. Let me know if you prefer my regular monthly favorites or these monthly highlights better!

I cannot believe that January is already over! This past month was jammed pack with the new year starting, Lilly Pulitzer After Party sale, the new semester starting and so many other events!


At the beginning of January I finally jumped on the bandwagon and picked up an adult coloring book and now I totally get the hype! I love getting to feel like a little kid again and it really is calming! I highly recommend it! You can pick one up for yourself here!


January is my roommate's birthday month! We celebrated her 22nd with a delicious dinner!


I also got a chance to celebrate one of my longest friend's birthday this past month as well! We've been friends since Kindergarden! 


January we had our first snow of the season and was able to get out of classes and work for two days! Yay! Also, I know UGGs get a lot of hate because they aren't the most "fashionable" pair of shoes, but I love them for winter. My feet get super cold in the winter so comfort over style is a defiant must for me in the winter months. I have been loving these UGGs with the little bows on the back of them though. So cute!

Let's not forget that the Panthers won the NFC division title this past month as well! I'm so excited to watch them play in the Super Bowl this Sunday!!

I got to experience my first restaurant week this past month in Charlotte! Restaurant week is when 100+ restaurants in Charlotte price a three-course meal for $30 - $35. So you can eat at five star restaurants for a decent price. I got to go out to eat with my favorite boys at Mortons and it was delicious!

What was your favorite thing that happened this past month? Let me know down in the comments below! Also, let me know if you guys like this style of January favorites / highlights better or the way I usually do them in the comments! I hope you all have a great day! (:

  1. So jealous that you got to do restaurant week! I wanted to do it but had some other expenses come up this month so I decided to pass (but I am FOR SURE doing it next year if I'm still in the area :-) ). Looks like a fun month!!

  4. The Lilly Sale is one of my favorite times of the year! Even though I didn't get anything this time (I'm saving up for a trip!), I still love browsing. Good luck this weekend at the Super Bowl :)

  5. Sounds like you had a great month. I love your pose wearing the Carolina Panthers jersey. We also had restaurant week in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area and took advantage of trying out a new restaurant. I think this recapp was a great post.
