Happy new year beauties! I hope you all had a great evening celebrating the end of another year!. I’m really excited to see what 2018 holds for me and this little blog of mine. I thought it would be great to end 2017 with my December favourites.
I received this primer in my December Latest In Beauty box and have been using it non stop since, I love how this applies and I have seen a definite improvement in the finish and longevity of my foundation when using this. I will be doing a full review of this soon so keep an eye out for that!.
After finding out about the brand Essence and how cheap their makeup was I decided to pick up their Princess Mascara. This is the best mascara I have ever used! I think it’s even better then the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (and that’s saying something!). It creates full lashes that look like you’re wearing falsies!.
This was a product that was on my Christmas list that I really wanted to try. It’s a brow gel with added fibres that make my brows (I have sparse brows at the end and in the centre) look thicker and fluffier!. I will definitely be purchasing this once it has ran out.
This wasn’t a new purchase for me, when it was first released I didn’t like it, the formula didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. Until I tried dipping my brush into the product and spraying it with setting spray, now it works so well and gives me the most popping highlight. I love the dark gold shade in this palette, I have been using it non stop!.
Another Essence product i have been loving is the Fresh and Fit foundation. It gives a medium but buildable coverage with the most smooth and flawless dewy finish. I love how well it lasts and would work really well for those with dry skin and costs less then £5!.
Funky tassel earrings
I have been collecting tassel earrings lately, they are such a fun and stylish accessory and finish off any outfit. I can’t wait to rock these yellow ones in the spring/summer with bold prints and florals. The best part is that these were only 99p! Absolute bargain!.
Chunky knitted scarves
For obvious reasons that it has and continues to be bloody freezing in the UK at the moment, I have been loving wearing over sized ‘blanket’ scarfs. I wear them under my coat and even wrap them round myself in the car or indoors when it’s chilly in the mornings! Not to mention they look so cute on.
Tv and film
I was a little late to this train but am so glad I caught it. I have been binging this series and am now up to date! A gritty gang series based on the on the Peaky Blinder boys and their business deals that more often then not,go wrong and drama ensues. Plus I love a brummie accent, the 1920’s fashions and Cillian Murphy is just my cup of tea *winky face*.
Like everyone I have been abusing my Netflix account for all their Christmas movies. My favourite this year has to be ‘Jingle all the way’ starring Arnie as a dad trying to prove himself to his son by securing him a popular action figure. With hilarious characters and the fact that everything goes wrong for him,this is the perfect film for families!.
I had the most wonderful Christmas with my family, from being spoilt rotten, watching my son open up his trampoline that I had saved to buy him, having Christmas dinner with my family and then playing board games while intoxicated with my mum and two sisters. It has been a good one but also was the first one without my grandma, who past away a few months back. If you want to see what I got up to this Christmas you can find it here.
I hope you enjoyed reading, I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for us all in 2018 and have set myself some pretty big goals. I wish the best to all you beauties on your adventures and blogging!.
Thanks for reading
