These are some products/things that I have been loving in January...


Collection Lasting perfection concealer 

I bought this a few weeks ago and I am obsessed with it; every time I have worn makeup, this has been my preferred concealer. I wear the lightest shade and it blends really well. The coverage is very good too, as it covers any blemishes all day long. You can probably tell that it has been well loved by the state of the bottle - this product is definitely worth the hype!

Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara

I have had this for a couple of months and it is still going strong. This is a favourite because, throughout the month of January, I have been visiting the gym once a week and doing other sporting activities whilst wearing this product. With other similar products, I find that I get black marks underneath my eyes and in my crease because I (unfortunately!) have oily eyelids. However, this mascara lives up to it's name as a 'No Smudge Mascara'.

Topshop White Matte Nail Polish

Matte nails have been a recent trend and I saw a girl post on Instragram her white matte nails; after seeing that I really wanted to try it out. I had never owned a Topshop nail polish but, from wearing this one, I think they are well formulated. You have to do two coats as it's matte but that's okay because I tend to do that with regular polishes. I really love the way it looks on my nails and I am tempted to purchase more matte colours.

Aveeno Hand Cream

I never really wore hand cream until I discovered this. I saw that my mum was wearing it and I asked to try it out, from then onwards I have carried this around in my bag. Admittedly, I don't like the smell but it is so moisturising   that I overlook the scent. It goes into your skin easily and you don't end up with greasy hands. This picture is of the sample size but I do have the full one. It's really worth a try! 

Tanya Burr's Afternoon Tea Lipgloss

As I watch Youtubers, I heard about Tanya Burr's lips and nails range and wanted to try it out. I did buy this last year but I have been especially wearing this in the month of January. It smells like strawberry laces and it is in a really pretty colour - mine is 'Afternoon Tea'. I put a nude lipstick underneath and this on top, as it gives it a lovely shine. In the near future, I would like to try one of her nail polishes. 

Topshop Concealer Brush

For my concealer, I was using my 'Expert face Brush by Real Techniques'. I still love it but I now use that for foundation and BB cream. This brush doesn't leave hairs on my face, as many of my previous ones did and I find that it is the perfect size and shape for my face. 

Notebook

I love this little notebook - I am now using it to plan posts. All my ideas go in there and it's a cute notebook that fits into my bag nicely. 

Random Favourites

My top 3 most listened to songs, this month, are:

Blank Space - Taylor Swift
Blue Jeans (remastered) - Lana Del Ray
In the End - Linkin Park

I have finished Gone Girl this month and it was an amazing read. I'm waiting for the film to come out on DVD to see how it compares! If you would like a in-depth review, feel free to comment.

Netflix has been on a lot this month because I am currently obsessed with Pretty Little Liars. It is so good! I'm only on series 1 but I want to catch up to the new series.
