December 2015 Beauty & Fashion Favorites

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight (get it here!)
I thought the Becca x Jaclyn Hill highlighter was great, and then I found this one. I now use this one every single day, as it is a much more subtle highlight. I'm reserving the Becca x Jaclyn Hill highlighter when I'm doing my makeup a bit more heavily or I'm trying out a strobing look. I absolutely adore the formulation and color of this highlighter - I cannot recommend it enough.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium (get it here!)
One of my new favorite perfumes - I cannot get enough of this one. I got it in a purse-sized spray to carry around with me, but in all honesty, this scent lasts all freaking day. The main notes are coffee accord, orange blossom, cedar wood essence and patchouli essence. 

Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist' s Palette (get it here!)
I bought this palette for my sister for Christmas and then after swatching it at Sephora, my mom and I both promptly bought it as well. It is the perfect mix of neutrals and purple-tones (which are my jam), and the formulation is so soft. Dare I say better than Urban Decay? Time will definitely tell on that, but the shades are all beautiful.

Roots Salt & Pepper Cooper Zip Polo (get it here!)
Going along with my Roots kick, this quarter zip is AMAZING. I wear it constantly - it is the perfect color, material, weight, etc. It's also men's (shocking) but just get a small/medium and rock it.

Sole Society Wide Brim Fedora in Heather Camel (get it here!)
As Ben likes to remind me "I'm not a celebrity" and "can't wear hats like this". But guess what? I got so many compliments on it an hour after I bought it. No regrets here.

BaubleBar Genevieve Collar Necklace (get it here!)
I've been trying to be good about buying statement necklaces (since my closet is full of them), but I couldn't resist this beauty. Plus at 30% off during a Baublebar Christmas sale, how could I resist?

cupcakes and cashmere 'Maya' Poncho (get it here!)
My newest winter obsession (which may go under-worn in Charlotte...), but Emily Schuman made it look so great on her blog that I had to buy it. I also embarrassingly own both colors. Not even sorry.

Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf Rulu (get it here!)
One of my favorite Christmas presents - it's a great & versatile piece that goes with so much. Plus, I can wear it after yoga as a wrap.

Alex and Ani Bangles - Path of Life, Lotus, & Compass (get them here!)
I am so late on the Alex and Ani bandwagon (which is crazy since Holly worked there for a year), but I have some great ones now! I got the 'Path of Life', 'Lotus Peace Petals', 'Compass', and 'Sister' (from Holly for Christmas!). I thought the Compass was especially fitting, considering my move. They're so fun and I can't wait to collect more!
