January Favourites!

Hey guys,

The first month of 2017 has now gone, how the hell has that happened?! Does anyone else feel like this month has been the longest yet the quickest month ever? Just me?
Anyway, back to the topic of what has pulled me through this dark, dreary January and the first month of 2017! As always the links to anything I can find links to is on the name of the product 🙂 ❤
Are you ready to hear what I have been loving?



1. Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation 

Recently I was prowling through my make-up collection the other day and rediscovered this little beauty and I have well and truly rekindled my love for it.
The colour match is amazing, it blends super well, the coverage is amazing and honestly makes you look so refreshed and.. awake (shockingly).
If you haven’t tried it then give it a go and see what you think 🙂

2. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

I received this beautiful palette for my birthday last year and I recently rediscovered it and I am obsessed once again. The colours are so easy to create a day or night look, they are so pigmented, blend like a dream and last all day long.
If you haven’t tried any Urban Decay shadows then go and have a little swatch, they are a dream… 



1. Head and Shoulders Apple Fresh Shampoo and Conditioner 

I ain’t gonna shy away from this, I do have a flakey scalp, and recently it has been getting worse. I think its because of the colder weather, I mean I am not 100% sure but I am pretty sure its the cold weather!
I recently picked up this combo and, so far, it seems to be working okay! And, benefit, they smell incredible and leave my hair feeling so soft and properly clean!
I love these as a combo so far, and if they help my scalp feel more human, then they are a win all around!



If you saw my New Year New Me? post you will know I am focusing on my fitness levels and watching what I am eating a bit more than I was before Christmas. So I thought I would link my favourite at home workout DVDs, a cookbook I have been using religiously for amazing meals that are actually good for you and will refuel your body properly and the app I use to track my calories and keep myself on track!

1. Joe Wicks The Body Coach Workout

2. Charlotte Crosby Belly Blitz DVD 

3. Lean in 15 Cookbook – The Shape Plan

3. My Fitness Pal App

1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ~ J.K Rowling 

As you will know from my previous posts I do love reading and I recently started Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I am only just reading the Harry Potter book series for the first time and I am pretty obsessed. I am loving this installment so far and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the story pans out compared to the films!



As it is super cold here in the UK as it is full blown Winter I thought I would share some things I have been loving to keep myself nice and cosy!

1. Fluffy Socks

Fluffy socks are a must for me, as soon as I get home I clamber into my PJs (after working out and showering) and cosy on up in my cosy socks and fluffy dressing gown. Is it just me who thinks they make the world feel like a better place? Hah! I grab mine from Primark mostly but you can get them pretty much anywhere, and, now is the right time as all the gift sets are on offer so yay to fluffy socks!

2. Coats

As I have said, the chilly times of Winter are upon us in the UK so coats are an essential! I love cosy coats, especially ones with fluffy hoods, that you can cosy up in and be all snug outside! The sales are on now as well for Winter coats so this is the time to grab one for the end of Winter and start of next, guys!

3. Boots

I have these boots from Hotter’s and I am in love with them. They are the most comfy boots I have ever owned and I wear them down to nothing during the Winter. They keep my tootsies so nice and warm and are honestly a dream to walk in, which is a huge bonus! If you are looking for some new boots give these beauties a whirl ❤

4. Jumpers 

This January I have pretty much lived in jumpers and, specifically, this gorgeous one from Bon Marche that has little west highland terriers on it! I am obsessed with westies and can’t wait to have one of my own so when I got this as a Christmas gift off my parents I was beyond thrilled! It is so soft, cosy and so easy to throw on with a pair of jeans and some boots and you’re good to go for the day! Love it ❤


So there you go guys, the first month of 2017 has escaped and we are moving onto the second very, very soon! How crazy is that?! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been loving this January, let me know what you have been loving in the comments, and I will be back soon with another post!

Talk soon,
