January Favourites

Hello again - I decided that this month I would do a proper monthly favourites post as I've never really gone into depth about what I've loved or used that more before. January is a bit of a strange month, everyone seems to have no money from Christmas and sales hauls and the weather is always pretty horrible although this year the weather seems to have been particularly awful. However there are some bits and pieces that I've been obsessed with throughout this month, which I'll be detailing below. January has been a bit of a difficult month and I'm actually fairly glad that it's come to an end, I'm looking forward to making the best of the year much better, although that said the start of the month was great so it obviously wasn't all bad.


Knowing my love of perfumes it's not really a surprise that I've been loving three perfumes that I've been wearing most days during this month. They're incredibly feminine perfumes both visually and fragrantically. Amor Amor in a Flash by Cacharel is the perfume that I've been wearing the most; I'm absolutely in love with its caramel and vanilla undertones although I'm a bit worried as I've only got the 30ml bottle so it's not going to last forever. I recently purchased Pink Honey by Marc Jacobs and was a little disappointed when I found out that it was a limited edition bottle but not a limited edition scent. That aside, the scent is divine and I'll definitely be wearing it throughout the next few months. Lastly, Valentino by Valentina was a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas and quickly became the favourite perfume out of my entire perfume collection; the smell and the bottle are simply amazing and it's one that I'll be cherishing forever.


This month I've been loving wearing quite natural make up but rather glittery that makes the planes of my face look more symmetrical. The Bobbi Browm Shimmer Brick highlighter/blusher in Rose has been a favourite of mine for the last year, it lasts really well and creates a lovely glow on the skin. It looks great paired with the Solstice highlighting palette which works great as both a contour and a highlight; the four shades are so pigmented and look amazing on the skin. I'm a massive fan of glittery make up and these two palettes work so nicely on pale skin. I prefer CC cream to a foundation, at the moment I'm obsessed with the Bourjois 123 Perfect version; it blends really nicely into my skin and feels almost like velvet which is a great feature. It's fairly full coverage if blended thickly, but on the whole it's fairly light which I like. It pairs well with the Bourjois 1 Seconde mascara; my all time favourite mascara, it makes my eyelashes look false because it makes the lashes so thick, long and curly. I'm actually in love! Finally I've chosen the NYX Soft Matte Cream in the shade London, it's the perfect everyday nude shade and it feels so good on the lips. Creamy is the right word to describe it and I've been wearing it almost everyday through January.


A couple of months ago I bought a copper drinking cup from Sass&Belle and I've been loving it as a make up brush holder. I know it feels like everyone is obsessed with copper assessories at the moment but I genuinely find it really useful as I can choose which make up brush I want to use much faster than if they were in the original carry case. I've been building a collection of Real Techniques brushes for a while as I'd read many good reviews about them and they have lived up to my expectations and more. My iPod nano 3rd generation, however old has been my best friend for many months now, accompanying me on so many journeys; to and from work, in Poland and just in general. I love it because it saves my phone battery and it's just a simple thing, it does what it says it does; it plays music well. Lastly, I'm in love with the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush perfume. It's super pretty to look at and lasts for hours on the skin; I like to wear it if I want to feel more confident in myself when I'm going out or seeing friends. What have you been loving throughout January?
