Truth time, ya'll. Last year, I think I started 75% or more of my monthly favorites posts with "How is [insert month] already over?" This month though.......... I feel like this is January 74th! I think October-November-December as a whole went by faster than January did. Maybe because I'm not eating sweets during the work week and trying not to drink alcohol this month.........that's probably it.

Needless to say, I've found a TON of new products this month that I've been loving! I received a lot of Sephora and Ulta gift cards in my stocking at Christmas so I stocked up on beauty products + there are a few Christmas gifts that I have truly loved and had yet to share. Check them all out below!


Classic Jewelry for Valentine's Day

OKC Blogger Amanda's OK shares ideas for Valentine's Day gifts

Jackie Kennedy once said, "Pearls are always appropriate," and I couldn't agree more. For as long as I can remember, pearls have been my favorite type of jewelry. Don't get me wrong, I would never be disappointed in diamonds or morganite, but there is something about pearls that screams class and sophistication and I'm here for it. Plus, they literally match everything. Pearls are always appropriate because they can be dressed up or dressed down, which I love, and they are slightly more budget friendly than other gemstones (a nice bonus!).

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about gifts. Whether that be gifts to give a Galentine or gifts to put on your own wish list (hint hint, hubby). I have been wearing this Freshwater Pearl set from Roma Jewelry non-stop lately and thought it was such a classic piece of jewelry for Valentine's Day, either to give or receive! The best part? The set is marked down to only $39 so it fits any budget!

My Top 6 Favorite Candles

Oklahoma City Blogger Amanda Martin of Amanda's OK share her top six favorite candles
Similar Coffee Candle

Confession: I am addicted to candles. I have a cupboard that is stocked year-round and, as my husband will confirm, I never pass up a good candle sale. I've tried my fair share of scents (some winners, some not) but there are a few select brands and scents that I keep coming back to. I thought I'd share my favorite candles below in case you are on the hunt for a new one! I think candles make such good gifts for housewarmings or birthdays, especially when paired with something else small (like a mug, wine glasses, a throw or a tea towel).

I burn candles year round, but there is something extra cozy about lighting a candle in the middle of winter and cozying up with a blanket, a hot beverage and a good book (or a big puppy, that works, too). Since it's been so chilly lately, I thought this was the perfect time to share my 6 favorite candles with you. So, without further ado.....

An Honest T3 Micro Review

Blogger Amanda's OK shares her experience with T3 Micro products
Amour Sweatshirt, on sale for $17 | Faux Leather Leggings | Nike Juvenates | Designer Dupe Sunnies | Lips, color is Patina

Hi friends! I got a T3 Micro curling iron and hairdryer for Christmas - both had been on my wishlist for yeeeears. I always wondered if they were worth the cost / really as good as bloggers said they were. I received SO MANY questions on some recent Instagram stories about how I curl my hair, so I thought I would dive in and talk about my experience with T3! There will be a curl tutorial coming to my Instagram stories soon....stay tuned!

This is 100% NOT-sponsored, by the way. It's a completely honest review! I received the products as Christmas gifts and T3 has no idea I exist or am writing this.

29 and Feeling Fine

Amanda Martin, OKC Blogger, turns 29 in style with a leopard skirt and chic sweater top.

29 and feeling fine.....that's how the saying goes, right? Ignore the fact that my knees are now all of a sudden aching after a few squats and my hip hurts when it's raining..... I also might go to bed at nine and wake up before the sun...it's fine.

I turned 29 yesterday and spent all weekend celebrating! A little too hard, actually. Hangovers hurt more than they used to. I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband who baked me beautiful chocolate peanut butter mousse cake, two gorgeous best friends who treated me to brunch and a fantastic family who drove two hours to have lunch with me! So yeah, I am 29 and doing just fine. I have quite a few more things to check off my 30 before 30 list in the next 365 days........I'm not overly confident that I will succeed!
