The Lit List January


Welcome back bitchessss! It’s the start of a brand new year and what better way to kick it off than a January edition of The Lit List; the one where we share with you everything we’re loving this month. From our latest binge watch on Netflix to what’s at the top of our ASOS saved section.

True, it is a real cliche that January is the time for all of those ‘join the gym’ ‘get fit’ resolutions but, let’s face it, because of this cliché all the best active wear is on the shelves right now. So whether  being more active is one of your goals for 2019 or you’re just treating to yourself to some new pieces, we’ve picked out some of the best new bits to get you going! Girlfriend Collective (totally dreamy activewear brand) is a new discovery for us at Hello October HQ. They stock a really wide range of sizes plus all of their garments are made from recycled materials but most of all they come in an array of gorgeous muted colours. *Heart eye emoji*. GIMMIE NOWWWWW.

As well as getting back to the gym January is the perfect time to get organised and the best way to do that is getting all new stationary. There’s nothing quite like a fresh note pad or diary and we have our eyes on these super cute little notebooks from Central 23. Ariana Grande & Friends, what more could you want?

Our new accessory obsession for this month is statement hair clips. The Gucci crystal hair comb (as seen in this video here) is a bit of a spend-y option when it comes to hair accessories but is just so boujee it couldn’t not be mentioned. For a pretty, delicate look that is less likely to lead to potential bankruptcy, these star bobby pins from Anthropologie and these pearl and rhinestone hair pins from Urban Outfitters are a fab option. If you want something more chunky and statement, Urban Outfitters also have these cute tortoise shell clips. AND the best bargain of all had finally just been restocked on ASOS. Act fast, grab the “J’ADORE” clip ASAP.

Then finally to round up this months Lit List there are two new Netflix film releases you need to know about: Birdbox and Black Mirror Bandersnatch. The latter is a multi choice movie which you will either be obsessed with or driven to insanity and Birdbox… we’ll, that whizz is intense. Both have mixed reviews but if you’re looking for something to watch this weekend it’s got to be one of those. However if you’re more of a “binge watching a series in one day” kind of person (A.K.A the best kind) then you need to add “YOU” to your list. The new Netflix thriller that will have you questioning why you’re rooting for Pen Badgely and whether his character is just Dan from Gossip Girl on steroids. Have you seen any of these yet? Leave your thoughts in the comments (minus the spoilers please hun)!
