What I'm Loving in January...2014 + A Giveaway!

I recently started using the Instant Revitalizing Mask by Radical Skincare and it's pretty boss. It activates oxygen bubbles to hydrate your skin like a dream. Just use it twice a week for anti-aging benefits and smoother skin. You can find it at Sephora. It will definitely be one of the reasons why people will continue to think I'm 17 even though I haven't been that age since 50 Cent's In Da Club was number one on the charts.

Back in my What I'm Loving in December post, I mentioned that I was going to start watching Orange Is the New Black. So I got Netflix and have been hooked on it ever since. I also watch House of Cards (although I prefer Scandal and Veep), Sherlock, Sons of Anarchy and a ton of documentaries. Have you seen Blackfish--the documentary about orca whales at SeaWorld? It's crazy. And don't get me started on Sons of Anarchy. I could watch Charlie Hunnam as Jax Teller all day. In January there's Sons of Anarchy and then there's everything else.

So the hubs lost his wedding band a little over a year ago while putting on snow chains, and he's been wearing a placeholder band ever since. But I was recently introduced to Komo Koa wood rings and decided that these Hawaiian rings wrapped in titanium and wood would be the perfect addition to his finger...as long as he keeps it out of the snow. The inside of the band has a beautiful etching of the Hawaiian islands and they come in women's sizes and bracelets as well.

Ever since I got this waterfall jacket from Boohoo in November, I've been really into the draped lapel look, but even more so in January. I have my eyes on this oversize version now, and I think I'll just resign to living in draped coats until Spring comes.

Here is a link to what I was loving in January of last year...for comparison!

Never seen Sons of Anarchy, I will have to look this up as it looks interesting. We get American shows so late, so I will check that out. The Koa wood rings look lovely, I like that idea. I hope you have a great weekend x

I tried to enter this but it did not work. There was no "like" button at the FB page. I tried with both Safari and Chrome. Seems there are always problems when it comes to FB.

So glad you like the Koa wood collection for Altin Place! Their pieces are so beautiful in person.

I have heard of Blackfish and it makes me sad. I don't think I'd be able to watch it but perhaps I'll try.
