January Favorites Video, better late than never:)

Look guys! I made another video! Okay you wanna know the real story? I've made like half a dozen videos since the last one I posted, but I'm too much of a dang perfectionist to publish any of them because they were either Way too off color or Way too out of focus or Way too something or other. At any rate, I'm slowly but surely getting used to how things work with my camera and the lighting in my house and so on, and they'll only get better I promise! So my goal is to post a video at LEAST once a week from now on, if not twice a week or more because I am overflowing with ideas for videos:) To start this week off (do you start your week on Sunday? me neither, but we'll just go with it for now:)) I'm doing my January Favorites! and a few unfortunates.haha (sorry again for the seriously wonky lighting. Working on it! :))
(UPDATE: If you're looking for a product list, click through to YouTube and you'll find each item that I mention listed with links in the description box! :))
I'm really excited about starting monthly favorites videos because I feel like it's a great way to give you a little bulk batch of items that I'm currently loving and using, and in the case of today's video, things that I'm a little frustrated with as well. There's really no rhyme or reason to the items I mentioned, just about all of them are beauty related though, so be sure and let me know what type of product's/reviews,etc you're looking to see and I'll keep that in mind for February! 

Thanks so much for watching, and I'll see you back again here soon!
xo, Emily

P.S. I'm going to start publishing videos on YouTube much more often and will only use them in blog posts once in a while from now on, so be sure and subscribe so you don't miss out on any of my future videos! xoxo

    1. haha You understand! Some of those scents are a little nauseating.haha Oh! Random, but my husband knows I love candles, and baking bread... so he bought me like 10 discount candles that are supposed to smell like baked bread, and they're awful! haha they actually remind me of mouse smell.haha sweet guy though, it was the thought that counts:)

  5. I am so sad you don't like the Neutrgena wipes - they are my favorite! I have had them dry out before too though, it helps if you buy one pack from the drug store and then keep the pack in that little blue box!

    1. aw I think they must have just been a little old or something, because like I said normally I really love neutrogena products and so was really surprised at them. That's wise about the box though, I'll have to try that next time!

  7. You should look up bang in a box -- they have tons of colors and are great quality! :) I'm a stylist and they have many colors to choose from... but they are straight across fringe. Also - love love the EOS lip balms. :)

  8. Great vid, thanks for sharing your favorites, and not so favorites with us. It's a real bummer about the Neutrogena wipes. They're the ones I use, and I actually find them to be quite oily. But, it has happened once or twice that they've dried up on me. It really sucks that you got a bad batch. I heard you mention the Aveeno wipes, and I think I'm gonna try those out. Just to see what else is out there. Nahi, xo

    1. no problem! You know I broke down and bought the aveeno wipes again and they're awesome.haha smell awesome, feel awesome, I hope you like them! I should go check the exact type but they're in a blush peachy ouch and they're like 'fresh scent' or something... not helpful at all.haha Thanks for your comment!

  10. How to fix the Sigma Brush holder, and close the lid:
    Put the brushes, head first, into the lid. Start with largest brushes, leaving the smaller ones for last. Then the box should close easier.

  12. Hey, love you by the way, is there any way you can list somewhere all the product names and such just somewhere by the video. Also, thought I should let you know in case you were unaware, that you have an audience of all ages. I'm in High School and you’re my favorite blog :) Lastly, I would love to see some make-up tutorials; yours always seems flawless.

  15. That is crazy about the Neutrogena wipes... I actually dislike them as well but it is because mine feel super greasy! When I use them my face feels so gross!!

    1. haha that's so bizarre! You know though I do feel an odd oily residue after using them after I've wet them under the faucet, so I always have to wash my face afterwards because of the oil, so I totally see that if they weren't dried out they might be an oily mess! haha
      Thanks for your comment lady!

  21. You are just lovely and hilarious and I have sincerely loved stalking your blog, IG, and Pinterest. I think we have a lot of the same interests, too and I wish you lived in the Provo area! Only big difference between us that I can see is that I am horrible with fashion (well, I've never really made an effort) and styling hair. But yay, I finally have a little daughter (she's only 6 months but she'll grow up:) to practice on! Anyway, I love this and you have to be the prettiest "red-heard" (auburn-head?) I've ever seen. Plus, you are a champ for having four littles close together! I want 7 (hopefully by 30?) and am impatient to have them all already. Anyway, you're awesome.
