1st Anniversary: Coffee & Chit Chat for January (ULTA Giveaway)

No, no, no, this isn't THE video I was talking about yesterday. BUT! It is a very important one. A year ago I started on my Youtube channel a monthly series where I give a snippet of my life in review.  I share all sorts of stuff there and it gives you a chance to get to know me better. CHECK IT OUT:


And yes, you can view it at work. Click here for the sneaky trick.

So what do you have to look forward to in this blurry (sorry, y'all) video?
  • Drink and Mug of the Month--um, pictured above. Moving on... 
  • January in Review--places and faces. Cute niece cameo!
  •  Movies and books of the month
  •  Fave monthly posts--there were some good ones. Did you miss a post? 
  • The results of my JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING challenge. I'm doing a little something each month this year. PLEASE pick a #JALS and play along! :)
  • Next month's #JALS is to go caffeine-free TWICE a week. Wish me luck! 
  • Faves/Not-so-faves beauty products of the month  
  • CHARLIE cameo. He's so cute. #biased. But what he was up to prior to filming was NOT cute. Watch the video for that tmi story.
  • Ipsy Bag of the Month (pictured below and reviews are in the video):

I was overal happy with this bag. FL fans, you would love the bag it all came in.


AND NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY!

Hi, I'm Elle and I'm obsessed with this Alice + Olivia mug.

Extra Elle: 

  • Still getting used to my iMac. I love it but I've been a pc user my whole life, so there's an adjustment period there. I liked the spell check better on my Dell, so if my comments on your blogs look odd, that's why! I love having a good movie editor on there too. I'm hoping to maybe get Final Cut Pro. We'll see! 
  • 2 weeks until my WDW trip! I will sound crazy saying this, but I already have Mickey Mouse nail polish with little MM ears in it and matching MM ears for me to wear. Pics soon. #stillakid #oldasdirt

  3. Oh, flat tyres and lost twice - I have to confess I get lost a bit more, you know someone who wasn't born with space orientation, or whatever it is called... that's me, but I am used to it... what can I do :) But I hope you don't get lost anymore! The lipstick is cool, and yes, some months before pastels! I kind of like January, and mine was like learning a lot of important things... about people, mainly! It's good!

  12. Your #JALS for next month is a great idea. Since the start of January I've cut my coffee intake down to once or twice a week (don't really drink soda). It was tough because I felt like I was drinking coffee every other day back in December. But I think twice a week is a healthier way to go.

  13. Okay, so as a first-time viewer of your Coffee & Chit Chat series I can honestly say that I love you a BILLION times more. You are so adorable, and I literally want to have real-life coffee & chit chat with you now!

  15. In response to one of your comments on your video, mostly because I rarely use my YouTube account for anything but viewing. What I'd like to do for 30 days, or in February's case, 28 days. I'd like to do a "Something Green" challenge. Basically make sure I eat something green with every meal I have the entire month of February. Whether it be broccoli, kale, green beans, peas, etc. It may be a blog segment as well. (: Totally loving your tumbler. I've got to get my hands on one of those.
