Every month I always discover new products that end up going into my list of all time favorites. With the new year I decided to jump on the bandwagon and start doing favorites every month to let you guys know what I’m loving 🙂 These are some of my favorite posts to read (and videos to watch on YouTube). I think it’s so fun to see what people are obsessing over, and hopefully find some new products to love as well! So without further ado, here are the things I have been loving in the month of January!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray 

I’ve been hearing about this rosewater spray for such a long time, and only last month did I decide to buy it. I am so happy I did because it has been the best thing that happened to my face. This rosewater spray makes my skin look refreshed, glowy, and healthy. I spritz it on after the shower, in the morning, before bed, before and after my makeup application, and whenever I want a little facial rejuvenation. This multi use spray is not only efficient, but also super affordable! I loveee this product and I’m going to be repurchasing this for quite sometime.

Marrakesh Oil

I received this hair oil in my FabFitFun box in December and I have been using it ever since. My hair tends to get frizzy and dry after the shower, and this has been a life-changer! It smells incredible, makes my hair silky smooth, and helps de-frizz my air-dried hair! I highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a new after shower hair product!

Kyshadow Bronze Palette

I’m going to be honest and say I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got this palette. The colors looked gorgeous and I saw so many beautiful Instagram pictures of it that I had to try it myself. Let me just say, Kylie knows what she’s doing when it comes to makeup. These eyeshadows are so pigmented, creamy, and super build-able. I can’t say enough good things about it! Even though it is on the pricer side, I would say it is more affordable than you would expect and it is 100% worth the price!

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Jennifer Niven has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her first novel, All the Bright Places is a tear-jerker, hilarious, and heart-warming story that will have you reading for hours on end. I finished that book within days (I didn’t finish it sooner because I didn’t want it to end). When I found out that Jennifer was releasing another story I was beyond thrilled. She has done it again with her impeccable writing and characters you can’t help but to love and wish were real. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book. Believe me, you’ll be glad you did.

Coloring Books

Relaxing and taking my mind off of the busy world around me is something I really want to work on in the new year. I decided in January to start coloring more, and I have noticed that after I color for a while I feel so relaxed and at ease. I have a few coloring books, but what you decide to color is up to you! There are so many options that you can’t go wrong. If you’re looking for a simple way to relax, grab some colored pencils and start coloring!

Good Morning Gorgeous Travel Mug

This is another item I received in my FabFitFun box and I have used it nonstop. As you guys know, I’m a sucker for some iced coffee in the morning, and this travel mug not only makes me feel great about myself but it also keeps my coffee nice and cold. If you’re a coffee addict then this baby will be your new best friend.

Adidas Originals: Tubular Suede-Paneled Neoprene Sneakers

So I haven’t had these sneakers for the entirety of January, but I already know they are going to be my favorites forever. They are hands down the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn, and they are super adorable which is an added bonus. I love how they can be paired with leggings or jeans and make the outfit look put together. I am so obsessed with these! I want to keep them clean and beautiful as long as I can! 😉 Also, THEY ARE ON SALE WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR BUY THEM NOW! 🙂

This one should really come as no surprise. I am not ashamed to admit that I have way more sweaters than most, but I embrace it. Not a single sweater goes to waste. They are all loved and worn equally that I couldn’t just pick a single favorite. That’s like asking a mother to pick her favorite child; it’s just a preposterous question.


Similar options: Forever 21 | Urban Outfitters | Classic Turn

In early January my boyfriend and I were browsing around Forever 21 (as one does), when this beauty caught my eye. I’ve been looking for a decent sized, cute backpack for everyday use so when I saw this sitting pretty on the shelf my eyes lit up the entire store. My boyfriend being the sweetheart he is bought it for me, and I have used it every day since! It’s the perfect size, my favorite color, and it holds sooo much. This is the perfect bag for any season and any occasion! I’m completely in love 🙂


So this favorite is a bit odd and different, but hear me out. Basically I have been stalking Missguided’s website for the past month and I love everything I see. You’re probably wondering, “Dana, if you love everything so much why haven’t you bought anything?” I’ll tell you why. Because the holiday season has made me live up to my name, One Broke Blonde. I definitely plan on ordering some things soon, but I have to save money for my responsibilities (i.e. bills) (i.e. being an adult sucks). In the mean time I’m going to keep drooling over all the clothes on shoes on this site because they are all amazing and perfect in every way.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and found some new products to try out! Let me know what things you’ve been loving recently, I would love to find some more faves 🙂


Let’s face it, shoes are addicting. Once you buy one, you have to buy them all…for every occasion or situation, ever. In my eyes, I don’t think it’s a problem at all. You can never have enough shoes, and I intend to keep adding to my already plentiful collection. While all shoes deserve a home and to be loved, there are just some staples that every lovely lady should have in their wardrobe.


I looooove sneakers so, so much. I love that there are so many varieties! They add a sporty put together look to any outfit; it’s perfect. Some sneakers are more casual, some have some fancy details but they are all equally fabulous. You honestly can’t go wrong with a pair of Adidas. Throw them on with any outfit and you look sporty, yet adorbs.

Slip Ons

Let us not confuse slip ons with sneakers, because believe it or not they are quite different. Slip ons tend to be a little less casual than sneakers, but still of course have the ability to dress down an outfit depending on what they look like. My favorite ones are from Steve Madden. I know they’re a bit pricy, but your girl got them on Black Friday for a discounted price so I don’t feel as guilty 🙂 Slip on shoes look perfect with distressed jeans, dresses, shorts, and even lounge pants! The possibilities are endless.

Over-the-Knee Boots

This one is pretty much a no-brainer. Every gal should own at least one pair of over-the-knee boots because they go with everythinggg. You can wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts, and shorts! I don’t think I could survive the fall and winter without my boots. If you don’t have a pair yet, what are you waiting for?!

Sweater | Dress | Boots | Bag (similar)


I’m going to be honest and say that only recently did I get into wearing booties, but now I’m never going back. I love how they add a little height and a little something extra to an outfit. They are perfect for accentuating  your legs if they’re worn with dresses, shorts, or skirts! They are a great shoe for the fall and winter, but can also be transitioned into the spring and summer as well!

Booties | Jeans | Sweater | Scarf |  Backpack | Fishnets


At first I was skeptical about these, but I have since grown to adore them! Mules and clogs are an awesome transition shoe into the spring, and depending on the weather you can get away with wearing them in the winter as well (just make sure your feet don’t freeze). I only have one pair right now, but I definitely want to get some more in different styles! I think this is such a funky trend and I’m excited to rock them some more in the warmer weather!

Mules | Jeans | Sweater | Scarf


I was never a big fan of flats until I bought these beauties last spring! They are Steve Madden as well so they were another impulse buy, but I was eyeing them for so long that I decided to snag them before they were gone. These flats are so comfortable and so chic. I love how they add a feminine touch to any outfit, and instantly make it look sophisticated and put together. I feel like most flats have that affect on outfits, and I really like the simple, elegant touch they offer.

I hope this post has inspired you to create some fun outfits with essential shoes in your closet! Keep in mind, even though some of the shoes and products are a bit pricer than I usually like to spend, every once in a while you deserve to splurge a little! Especially on shoes 🙂 I never show expensive products I don’t truly love with my whole heart! What are some of your favorite shoes you can’t live without? I would love to know in the comments!

Stay fabulous!
