I always seem to be a step behind, every damn time/ My intention was to post this last sunday but silly me didn't get my act together before I left for Cardiff so I couldn't hit post whilst on that loooooong journey home. To be fair, I had to kick my own butt over the space of 2 days just to finish this month's Trendsetter Tuesday (the Alexa Chung post is here)! Queen of procrastination at it's finest.
January found me loving so many items, some of them were Christmas presents, some where sale items and some I simply couldn't resist!
I love love love matte balm/lip crayons, matte lip colours suit me so much more than anything shiny or glossy, so I couldn't help myself from trying these two colours out when Boots had a Revlon offer (3 for 2 is still on!). Whilst I love orange nowadays, and my mum wears orange lippy a lot, I didn't actually have one so it was a definite when selecting colours and that pink is gorgeous! Very much like 'Back in the Game' by Topshop only a little lighter and prettier. These colours are 'Audacious' and 'Showy'.
This Burt's Bees lip balm is my a staple of mine, I apply it so much because my lips dry out quite often but it's worked wonders! It's not the cheapest but when bought as part of a £5.99 tin gift set then it works out peanuts.
My 'My Face Is Worth How Much?' post is literally me raving about these Real Techniques brushes, they're incredible and affordable when bought online. I use them everyday as well as this Rimmel Stay Matte powder! It's a great finish to set my make up and I'd be lost without these three now.
How have I gone 21 years without this product?! It smells delicious and I feel lush when I wear it. Might as well just walk around the house in my underwear and apply this lotion to every bit of available skin. Maybe not.
I really needn't say anything about this book, I'm pretty sure it's all been said in this review but I read it this month and it was incredible.
All hail Taylor Swift. The past month I've played this album non-stop, I'm pretty sure the rest of the year will follow suit too. This time last year I was in the same position with Little Mix's 'Salute' which is one of my all time favourites and I know this album will be the soundtrack of my 21st year.
As if the album isn't incredible enough, how cute are these glossy polaroid snaps?! I just need to decide where to display them now.
Heaven in boot form. Absolute heaven aren't they? I first fell in love when these were full price at £80-something and Megan was sporting them with absolutely everything, I had boot envy. When I found them for £44 in the ASOS sale, I bit my tongue and bought them. They suit nearly every outfit, jeans, dresses, skirts, everything and I'm so excited to finally do a new outfit post with these babies.
I'm still in shock when I look at my iPad and I know it's mine. After years of refraining, I treated myself with some of my birthday money in the sales and bought this iPad Mini 2 32GB for £279! Kind of a bargain considering it was reduced by £120.
What things have you been loving so far this year?
