December Favorites


 How is Christmas only one week from today?!  The months are flying by.  Since I will be celebrating the holiday with my family next Monday, I will not be posting until later in the week  but I wanted to make sure I posted my monthly favorites!  A few of these items will be familiar to you as I posted them in my gift guides, but I had to share a few items that I absolutely love and think you will too 🙂


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

1 | Hearth & Hand Teakwood Currant Candle

I posted this in my Gift Guide For The Host/Hostess after picking it up myself at Target.  The smell is so festive, yet not overpowering.  It burns beautifully and love the way the red jar adds a touch of red for the holidays.  Another plus- it has a lid.  Am I the only one who doesn’t like the look of melted candle wax and a charred wick when it’s not burning?

2 | J. Crew Ribbed Beanie

When I posted my Gift Guide For Her Under $50, I bought a few goodies from the list for myself and this was one of them.  I am in love with this hat.  Its super soft and warm, it doesn’t ruin your hair when you take it off, and it looks cute with everything I own.  The only color that isn’t backordered until January is the black, but I say buy the color you want and wait it out.  You will get use out of it for the rest of the winter and future winters to come!

3 | LipSense Moisturizing Lip Balm

This is a must have for cold weather.  It has completely prevented my lips from transforming into the painful, dry, cracked lips that usually emerge come December.  I put it on throughout the day and most importantly, before I go to sleep at night.  It is colorless and tasteless- perfect for your kids, your husbands, or yourself!  Give this a try one time and I promise you will be hooked.  The best part is- its entirely natural.  The ingredients are right on the tube- no harmful chemicals to hide.

4 | Pottery Barn Faux Fur Throw

This is the best blanket.  I picked it up two winters ago and it has been a staple for the colder months ever since.  There are multiple sizes and colors so you can choose what works best for your home.  I have the color “Caramel Ombre,” which is a bit darker but works great with the warmer neutral tones- ivory, tan, beige, or white.

5 | Tarte Cosmetics Eye Shadow Palette 

This was another one from the Gift Guide For Her Under $50 that I had to purchase for myself.  This palette comes with 12 beautiful neutral colors that are highly pigmented and blendable.  Some are matte and some have a touch of sparkle.  If you had to choose only one palette, I would highly recommend it- so many options and the price is fair, considering the use you will get out of it.


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season.  I hope you all have a chance to spend time with the people you love! xx

LipSense Products and Discount Code

Happy Monday my loves!  I have some exciting news!!  I shared with you one of my favorite lip products in my October favorites post- LipSense liquid lipstick.  Well, the LipSense distributor I order my products from, Kate, has been so kind to offer my followers a discount code!  Let me tell you the reasons I love this product.



The lip products last all day! I went out with my mom for a day of lunch and shopping recently- I put on my LipSense at 11 a.m. before leaving the house, and when I got home at 8 p.m. I swear my lips still looked perfect.  The secret to this long-lasting wear is the gloss that goes over the lip color.  I reapplied the gloss about 5 times throughout the day- most importantly after eating.  Not only does it last long, but it never smudges, never transfers to your coffee cups or wine glasses, and never to your partner’s lips!  It’s smooch approved 😉


These lip products are actually good for your lips.  The gloss is super moisturizing.  Unlike some of the other brands of long-lasting lip products, LipSense does not give your lips that dry, cracked look.  They look plump and moisturized.  This is essential for the upcoming months of cold weather.  Not to mention they are vegan, and free of GMOs, gluten, wax, and lead!


There are a variety of colors to choose from but my favorite part is that these products are designed to be layered.  The colors I own look beautiful alone and layered- I love that you can create a unique look with fewer products.  I will post photos below of the colors I own- I love to layer Bella and Pink Champagne for a more neutral daytime look!  Check out all of the lip colors and gloss options here!


You get a lot of product for your money.  Each tube of LipSense is the equivalent to 4 tubes of lipstick!  If worn everyday, one tube lasts 4-6 months!  For those of you who have used long lasting liquid lipsticks such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kylie Cosmetics, etc.- they charge more money for lesser quantities.


I own and love the colors Pink Champagne, Bella, and Goddess.  When you first purchase, get a starter lip kit as it comes with one lip color of your choice, the gloss you need to get that long-wear color, and an oops remover for goof-ups and to help you remove the product at the end of the day.   To get the most out of this product, apply 3 thin layers of color (one or a combo of your choice), allowing lips to dry for at least 5 seconds between each layer application.  After all 3 layers have been applied and lips are dry, apply a coat of the gloss and reapply just the gloss as needed throughout the day!

If you are interested in purchasing, Kate has a Facebook page with photos of all the colors she has in stock, helpful video tutorials, promotions and games with prizes, and photos of all the beautiful ladies who order these products, showing off their custom looks.  You can order whatever you need through this Facebook page by commenting on the photo of the product you want, or private messaging Kate.  She is a wealth of knowledge and can help you pick the right color so don’t hesitate to reach out to her!  She is offering 15% off of any order to my followers.  There are a ton of other products I have yet to try- cream to powder eye shadows, highlighters, color correcting creams, blushes, and more!  Mention the code ROSECOLORED15 to take advantage of the offer!  Hope you all have a beautiful week-stay warm! xx
