J a n u a r y favourites

2 February 2015

Hey everyone, happy February!! I can't believe January is already over and I'm writing my first monthly favourites post - did January even happen?! This year is going so fast already.. I'm hoping this is the first of many posts, so I hope you enjoy having an insight into a few of my January faves! .. I admit, it was mostly beauty items for last month, and I can't wait to share them with you! 

Oooh, before I get started I hope you've all had a fabulous start to 2015, and let's hope this year is a great one! 

..and these are a few of my favourite things

First up, my new found obsession! Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I've wanted to read the book for ages, and after watching the film in the cinema I was even more interested than ever. The film was amazing, and if you haven't yet seen it stop right now and watch it! I've been loving reading this. Weeellll worth the read!

Second of all, some Benefit make-up products.. I'm a late one for jumping on the Benefit bandwagon, and I've never been one to look at there products. Until. January. I picked some little mini testers up from Boots not so long ago, and I've been addicted ever since. In particular the Bad Gal Lash mascara - Where has this been all my life!!? Really?! The bigger brush at first put me off, as I don't get along with the thicker brushes, they just usually clump all my lashes together.. but oh no, not this one! The brush divides all my lashes individually in the perfect way. Even though it's a little pricier than the drugstore mascara's (£17.50), I think it's well worth the money and you're definitely getting what you pay for - It's just a delight to put on every morning, and as my little one is coming to an end, I'll definitely be taking a trip to the Benefit counter!!

Everywhere I look recently, everyone seem's to be watch obsessed. Instagram especially is full of watch selfies and the new latest watch craze - so I thought I'd join the hype and introduce my new beauty. It's not branded in the way that everyone would recognize such as your stereotypical Micheal Kors, but I fell in love with it as soon as I laid eyes on it. It's perfect for my everyday looks - Don't you just love it too?!
This winter (starting waaay back in November) I've been lipstick mad. Lipstick was never something I really took an active interest in, as I didn't think it suited me - but then I met YSL, Clarins and Topshop. 
These three have been my go to lips and I'm completely in love with them all. 

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Rose Infinite 07
Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant 07 Raspberry
Topshop Beguiled

Clarins Palette Maquillage
Blush Prodige 05 Rose Wood

Oh, Clarins, why do you do this to me?
As I've said pretty much all throughout this post, Clarins was again a make-up brand I hadn't really tried before. However, my boyfriends mum is Clarins obsessed, and she kindly bought me the compact foundation palette - and ever since that, I too, have had a little bit of a Clarins craze. I was so thrilled and lucky to receive a huge selection of Clarins products from my mum, who treated me to some of there really great products and a few she thought I'd love too. Out of everything, I've been loving the Blusher in this little Clarins palette - it's just the perfect blush colour!

Pomegranate Pure Soy Wax Candle

There's no way I could write a monthly favourites and not include a candle - its just impossible. And this candle of all things. It. Is. Beautiful. Inside and Out! This little number fits in perfectly with my bedroom, the scent is Natural Botanical and is just incredible. The 100% pure soy candles are also meant to be a lot better for you - so it's a win win. 

Netflix Alert
Pretty Little Liars

A huuuuuuge January favourites has been the Pretty Little Liars series on Netflix. I just haven't been able to do anything because I've been glued to it. I've only got 1 episode left, which I'm going to finish in no time - what will I do then?!?! 
If you have any netflix recommendations please comment below! Am on the look out for a new addiction. 

I hope you've enjoyed my January favourites! I've definitely enjoyed writing about all my faves - Let me know in the comments some things you've been loving, would love to know!
