We're Loving: January

Happy New Year friends! 

We're back with another We're Loving, the monthly series where we share ten things we can't live without right now and the songs we're currently playing. This month, we're sharing ten things that will help you rock out your New Year's Resolutions and a playlist that's about keeping your energy high while the temps are *freezing* and the days are short. Enjoy!

No. One

Is anyone else feeling the unrelenting need to purge all.the.things? Us too. So this month, we're taking part in Emily Ley's Simplicity Challenge. The Simplicity Challenge is an easy one-task-per-day challenge designed to declutter your home and life. You can follow along on Emily's instagram for the daily challenge. 

 

No. Two

Drinking more water on your 2018 to do list? Make it just a little easier by having a pretty water bottle with you throughout the day. We're pretty obsessed with this shade of pink on this S'well bottle (shocking, right?). S'well bottles keep your drinks cold - and we mean cold - for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 12 hours (just in case you decided that "drink more water" actually means "drink more coffee"). 

 

No. Three

Later this month, we'll be joining a few friends to complete Whole 30! This is Emma's first W30 and Kaitlynn's second, so we're working to gather all the recipes we can in order to make meal planning a breeze. This recipe list from The Everygirl is giving us major inspiration. {PS: If you have Whole 30 tips, leave 'em in the comments below!}

 

 No. Four

Interested in trying meditation but not quite sure where to start? We love the Headspace app. They offer a 10-session free trial, followed by a low monthly subscription fee if you're interested in continuing your practice. This app makes meditation totally approachable - it's one of our favorite ways to start the day. 

 

No. Five

We've got all the heart eyes for this wrap sweater from Lululemon.  Whether you're hitting your barre studio or you just want to stay warm while you're on a Netflix binge (#truth), this wear-it-two-ways wrap is the perfect. 

 

No. Six

Trying to keep up with the crazy 24-hour news cycle, but not quite sure where to start? Try theSkimm! We're long-time subscribers to this amazing female-run, e-news source. Delivered to your inbox every morning, theSkimm keeps you updated on everything you need to know (and breaks down more complex news stories) in just about five minutes. 

 

No. Seven

This year, we're trying to create better sleep habits (like getting more of it!), so why not make climbing into bed a little more tempting with these classic pajamas. Have a little Breakfast at Tiffany's moment and grab this sleep mask while you're at it. 

 

No. Eight

Anyone else a huge fan of The Hills? Well Hills alum Emily Weiss (aka Teen Vogue's "Super" Intern) launched her own skincare and makeup company, Glossier and we are *loving* these products. This month we're using The Super Pack - three serums, each specifically designed to target different skin problems. Did we mention that you can set up a reoccurring subscription to get your favorites delivered regularly? Well done, Emily! 

 

No. Nine

The gray days of January are a real thing in Michigan, so if you're feeling a little "blegh" right now, this DIY could be the trick to feeling more inspired! We love how Whit breaks down this easy and affordable project - plus the results are gorgeous!

 

No. Ten

Oh hey, you're probably here because you're getting married, right?! So if you're *only* resolution is to plan an amazing celebration, check out Style Me Pretty's Newly Engaged Challengea 30-day guide to celebrating your new engagement! Happy planning, sweet friend!
