January Loves

Okay...January has zoomed by. However, I'm not going to let my nostalgia get the better of me and talk longingly about the month that's flown by. If you've read my blog for a while you'd be aware that I don't tend to do these types of 'monthly favourite' posts very regularly but 2018 clearly brought a sudden turn of events.

Benefit They're Real Mascara 
Confession time : I have never been a huge fan of Benefit mascaras. There, I said it. I know this may be quite controversial as countless people are fully dependent on benefit for providing long, voluminous lashes. In the past I've tried two of Benefit's mascaras yet none of them quite managed to fulfil my lashes needs. However, I thought I'd give Benefit one last chance to shine and I'm so glad I did. Besides the modern and innovative packaging this product has volume, length ( basically all the mascara criteria!) AND it can hold a curl. What more could you want?

Soap and Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash
This has completely changed the face wash game and deservingly earned a spot in my skin care routine. It cleanses, energises and gently exfoliates the skin ASWELL as removing makeup. Soap and Glory, your 're killing it with this one!

Pull & Bear Nail polish in Metallic Silver
I'm no sidekick but I can already see this being in my 2018 Yearly favourites. Is it just me who struggles to find glitter/metallic nail polishes that aren't sheer? I finally found a winner. This silver polish with fine glitter means that in just one coat you can create picture perfect nails.

Barry M lip Liner in Blush
 When it comes to lip products I try to steer away from anything too drying ( and unfortunately this sits in the drying category). However, the colour more than makes up for it. Highly recommend you give this a swatch in your nearest Boots.

Planning my Content
One of my 2018 Blog Goals was to organise and plan out my content for you guys and although I was skeptical about actually following through with it I managed to keep up the motivation. Writing and planning out my content has been nothing short of a life saver and although it's not a material favourite, it has certainly been the most affective.

That's all for now, hope you've all had a great month so far!



  1. Ah I love Benefit so I definitely want to try the "They're Real" mascara! I have recently bought a new planner and been planning all my blog posts etc. in it and I love it! So many people say that January dragged on for years, but I agree with you, it flew by! xx


    1. Would definitely recommend it! I get what you mean, so many people see January as long/ dull which I understand but for me it flew by!x

  2. I have NO idea where January has gone! I can't believe that we're almost at the end of this month.

    That Soap and Glory face wash looks good. :) I'm tempted by anything that has Vitamin C in it - I find my skin responds really well to it!
