January Things

January was such a long month. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been busy or what’s up with the whole ”wait, it’s only been a month since new year?” thing but it feels like a least three months have passed.

Anyways.. Here’s my January favorites.

I’m gonna start of with my backpack and these crisps.

Since I started school my backpack has been my best friend. It’s a Fjällräven, Kånken No.2 in the color Dark Olive. This is basically a backpacker bag so the fabric is really durable and it’s also waterproof. Which I was thankful for that day it rained so much I regretted taking a shower. I had my computer with me so I was so relieved when I got home and found that nothing had been damaged!
Also.. These crisps. Holy hell they’re good. In Swedish they’re called Västkust Chips which roughly translates to West coast crisps. So they’ve got sea salt on them and are really crispy and nice and I’ve been snacking on these more than I’d like to admit.

Lip wise I’ve been using this lip balm from Kicks. The thing about this is that when I bought it I thought it would be crap. But as it turns out it isn’t and I’ve been using it constantly for a couple of weeks now (Kicks also have a handcream with olive oil, which I tried and loved as well)

The last thing product wise is the sugar scrub and body butter in Chocomania from The Body Shop (Surprised much?)

I love this stuff. The body butter is so thick and rich that the term ”a little goes a long way” is exaggerating.
It leaves me completely moisturised and soft and it isn’t sticky. The smell is light and wearable and a little sweet. Which makes it go pretty bad with flower-based perfumes but work well with just sweet ones.
The sugar scrub is one of the most fantastic scrubs I’ve ever tried. Since the sugar melts after a while you have be pretty quick but it really exfoliates and makes my legs feel as soft as a blanket. Well, a smooth one that is. Freaking kashmir and stuff. This combination is unbeatable. (Sadly these are all gone now, they took Chocomania out of the range after the sale but these products is still in the range, just not the Chocomania one)

I saved the best for last. Because this has been my top one this month and will probably be for the coming ones as well… Drumroll please.

What’s this? A CD? Fall out Boy’s American Beauty/American Psycho. This is the only thing that I’m listening to at the moment. It’s like me and Fall out Boy are standing in the isle, reading our vows and I’m falling in love all over again. I don’t even know how to describe the awesomeness of this. You’ll just have to listen for yourself. You will understand. (Klick the picture to go directly to Spotify)

I hope you found something that you might like as we all prepare, broken hearted, for a Valentine’s alone.
Might seem a bit hypocritical since I’m gonna spend Valentine’s with my best friends, celebrating my birthday, but you get what I’m saying.
