needless to say, the majority of my january favourites came around as christmas gifts last month and i'm still mourning for that happier time. starting with my long awaited adidas superstars, they're a sturdy upgrade to the canvas converses i usually sport and are worn best with my super long zara coat and a crop leg of kinds. for general trends - having always been partial to a good stripe - pinstripes have been a firm favourite. descendant from traditional tailoring and beautifully minimal; its one of the few trends that is timeless enough to make it into my collection without a question of doubt. lastly, a very special addition to my monica vinader ring collection adds a daily dose of understated colour to my otherwise monochromatic looks, plus hammered silver and me are like 'this'.

a new month means a new lipliner favourite in the world of e-miwt?. this time its in the form of m.a.c subculturea barely there shade of pink. this put with straight hair in a centre part has been my most favoured fotd - especially with a copper eye and all black attire for the odd evening out. dry january, dry shmanuary. as for perfume, mimosa and cardamom by jo malone has been my scent of choice. oriental, warm, floral, but more of that in this post here...

in the life category, its an accumulation of all things winter-ey. i discovered a incredible blend of candles that sadly have all but burnt out now, but together snow in love and verveine citron made a refreshing, light scent that made my room that much nicer to hibernate in. book-wise, i am pages away from finishing luckiest girl alive which i've enjoyed for a thrilling, somewhat superficial read, and closing on the subject of all things books - cliché that i am - writing in my brand new moleskine diary this january has been all kinds of satisfying.
