With 2012 shaping up to be a fabulous year! I’ve picked up some new obsessions over the last week! Being the very giving person that I am, I’ve decided to share my obsessions with you so that you can obsess with me!

1. Rock of Ages: The Movie

Holy TOM CRUISE AND ALEC BALDWIN! This movie looks hilarious! I’ve seen the Broadway version more than five time; It’s actually my go-to show when I have people visiting from North Carolina and it is so funny that your cheeks and abs will hurt from laughing when you leave. Obviously the 80’s music speaks for itself. Pure Awesomeness.

2.  Planning my best friend’s wedding!

It is OFFICIAL! I have become a MOH-zilla! In non-wedding obsessed language, a maid-of-honor version of the much feared BRIDEZILLA! Here are some BFF shots over the years!


Throughout the wedding planning process we’ve always tried to keep budget in mind and while it’s okay to splurge on some things, you must pick and choose what you can save on! Chrissy wanted to wear this white mini to her bridesmaid’s luncheon, but at $600 it was quite over budget for an event that would only last a couple hours.

Luckily my unparalleled research skills found this similar dress at Forever 21 for only $24!!

3. 2011 was all about braids! 2012 is all about the twist! One of my favorite fashion and beauty blogs Refinery29 re-introduced me to this trend that I definitely remember rocking throughout middle school! It’s on my list of things to try this weekend!


4. e.l.f. Studio Volume Plumping Mascara

Ever since I got my hands on an early batch of our new Studio Volume Plumping Mascara, I WAS HOOKED! My lashes are super long, but totally straight and definitely need some plumping to stay in place after I curl them!


5. Hot Summer Night By Grace Potter and The Nocturnals

The weather in New York City has been pretty bi-polar lately and despite a few nice days, it’s been BITTER COLD! This song is all about getting through the frightful winter weather by spending it with someone who can make you feel like it’s a “hot summer night!”

What are your January obsessions!? The elfettes ALWAYS have the best!
