January Favourites 2017



I’m sat here writing this on the 1st February! Honestly, how are we already starting the second month of 2017? It felt like I blinked and January was gone. Anyway on to what I was loving throughout the very first month of 2017.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow

Possibly my new holy grail foundation, this stuff is amazing! I picked this up whilst I was in America in December. It’s marketed as a radiant air-light medium coverage foundation, I agree with all of those claims. My skin always looks healthy and radiant when I wear this. It gives me great coverage but feels like I’m wearing nothing on my skin! I honestly can’t put it down, although I’m so scared it’s going to run out soon and we can’t get it in the UK just yet!

Covergirl Lash Blast Volume

BEST DRUGSTORE MASCARA EVER! Yep, I said it. This mascara has gone straight to the top spot. It gives me volume and makes my lashes looking amazing and there is no clumpiness (is that even a word, who knows).  I’m gutted we can’t pick this up in the UK but apparently, Max Factor are the same company? If anyone knows the MF alternative to this mascara please let me know!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

This has to be the weirdest smelling bronzer I have ever tried but, I like it! To me, it smells like holidays and that’s just wonderful. Enough on the smell. I’m like Caspar the ghost, I’m so pale I could be see-through. But, this bronzer is my perfect shade. It’s not orange and it gives me a lovely sun-kissed-you’ve-been-away glow! Just what I needed in January.

EOS Lip Balm 

I’ve tried these before but not for years. I think this scent is strawberry-coconut or something like that. I picked this up because it sounded nice. I didn’t think I would use it. Since I’ve had this I have used it every single day. It’s so small and perfect to chuck in my bag and apply on the go.

The Life Changing Making of Not Giving a F**K

There is so much hype around this book its silly. I almost didn’t want to get it because it is so popular and quite frankly I thought it was going to be shit. I’ve read this most nights and I am really enjoying it. It’s interesting and so easy to read! If you are looking for a book that you can just pick up then this is perfect.

Sparkly Starbucks Cup

I mean how can this not be a favourite? Look at it! It’s beautiful. Everyday I fill this up with water and drink it when I’m at home, it also comes to bed with me. I’m trying so hard to drink more water this year.

What things were you loving throughout January?
