My January Obsessions ✨

Hi guys! Hope everyone has been having a lovely 2024 so far. How is it already almost February? 🥲 I swear this year is flying by so quickly and bringing so many changes, but I’m kind of loving it? Do you know what I mean? It just feels like so much excitement is in the air, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings. How are you feeling?? 🥹

You absolutely loved my last newsletter featuring all my faves, so as promised, I’m going to try to keep them coming at the end of every month! I genuinely love to try new things and am always seeing you guys in the comments sharing your recs with me, so let’s get into this month’s latest obsessions! 💅

Food Favorites
RAWR Organics Protein Bars
As many of you know, I just moved to Austin, TX. The way that I have been running around nonstop for the last few months has been crazy, and I honestly don’t know how I’ve survived, but we finally made it, and I’m so excited. Anyway, I usually try to eat full, wholefood meals as I’m not a big snacker, but RAWR Bars have really been saving me, especially when I’m on the go. They taste amazing and they’re made with only a handful of super clean and minimal ingredients, which you all know I love. They also stay in the fridge so they taste super fresh every time I have one — definitely my favorite bar right now.

Bread SRSLY Gluten-Free Sourdough
One thing about me, I love my sourdough bread. I eat gluten-free 99% of the time, though, so it’s hard for me to find some I trust. I usually try to make it myself or find it fresh locally, but sometimes I just don’t have the time — that’s why I’ve been so obsessed with this bread!!! It’s made with only a handful of ingredients, tastes so fresh, and is made without any allergens like nuts, eggs, dairy, sugar, or gluten. I’ve been loving having a slice in the morning with breakfast or as a snack whenever I crave it.

Orange Passionfruit Greens
HUGE NEWS!!!! We just launched Greens for the first time EVER in the UK!! This has been such a big moment for me and a milestone I’ve dreamed about since launching Bloom. It’s such a surreal feeling to know Greens are available in my home country, and I’m just so excited to continue expanding internationally and make Greens more accessible than ever. 🥹With that all being said, I’ve been absolutely loving our newest flavor, Orange Passionfruit!! It was completely out of stock for a bit because everyone loved it so much but now that it’s back in, I’ve been drinking it nonstop. It’s definitely one of my favorite flavors and has such a sweet, zesty flavor. If you haven’t tried it yet, this is your sign!!

Fashion Favorites
Matching Amazon Set
I love a good matching set — especially for busy days when I just want to throw something cute on or when I’m traveling and want to be comfortable but still look put together. I found this set on Amazon and the quality is so good + it comes in tons of different colors, and whenever I wear it into the office I get so many compliments from all the girls!! I usually pair it with a cute oversized jacket, hat, and Uggs or Birkenstocks and it’s the perfect cozy but cute outfit.

2002R New Balances
I try to get in a few walks throughout the day just to get my steps in and to keep me feeling energized, so it’s super important to me that I wear comfortable shoes that don’t make my outfit look absolutely hideous. I love my Hokas for runs and hikes, but lately I’ve been obsessed with these New Balances and have them in a few colors (white, navy blue, green, etc.). They look so good with jeans for a streetwear-esque look and they’re super cute with leggings or biker shorts for a more sporty vibe.

Lioness Kenny Bomber Jacket
I’ve been pairing this jacket with my winter looks lately and I have never gotten so many compliments. It’s so cute and I love the way that it fits oversized but not too big. I’m on the taller side, so I tend to have a harder time finding a perfect, oversized fit and this jacket does not disappoint. It’s super easy to dress down and throw over a more casual look or dress up and pair with a dress or nice top for a night out. I really love this brand and am always shopping from them on Revolve — everything is so cute and the quality is so great!!

Beauty Favorites
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencil Pillow Talk
If you haven’t gotten into lip liner yet, you’re missing out!! I love to do minimal makeup for my day-to-day looks and I’ve found that adding a lip liner & gloss just really brings it all together with such minimal effort. I love this Charlotte Tilbury liner because it’s so easy to apply and has such a creamy formula that doesn’t flake or rub off. There are also so many shades to choose from and they’re all such stunning neutrals that I’m sure you’ll find one you absolutely love.

Wine Lip Stains 
I came across these on TikTok and decided to give them a shot for fun — I’m SO glad I did. They last literally all day and look so great on. I love how buildable they are depending on how long you leave them on and how quickly and easily they apply and stain your lips. This + the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencil? 10/10 combo — trust me.

Book Favorites
Manifest by Roxi Nafousi
I picked this one up recently and got through it on my drive to Austin. I feel like it really set the right tone for this new chapter in my life. The book guides you through finding yourself and finding ways to improve all while helping you shake off any self-doubt, fear, and negative thoughts that might be holding you back. I feel like it really helps push you to match your actions to what you really want out of life, and is such a good read for anyone looking to invite positive change into their lives and improve for the better.

I hope you give some of these a try and love them as much as I do! Let me know on IG if you have any other specific recommendations you’d like me to share next month, or if you’ve been loving something lately you think I will too! I love hearing from you guys!! 🤎

Wishing you the best end of the month and sending you all my love going into February! Chat soon. 😚
