January Favourites 2018

I can't believe it's the end of January already... it's flown by! I haven't done a favourites post since October last year so this was long overdue. There's quite a few things I've been loving this month but I managed to whittle it down to 8!

My first favourite is The Body Shop Seaweed Oil-Balancing Clay Mask, which you may have seen in my recent skincare post. I've been using this mask probably way more than I should, but my skin is thanking me for it. I've always preferred clay masks to other types, and this mask really feels like it's giving your pores a deep cleanse.


I've been mourning Christmas this month by wearing very bright, colourful, and I suppose summery eyeshadow. My favourite combination at the moment is red in the crease and a yellow lid. I know that sounds odd, but it looks amazing with my warm toned skin and blue eyes. I'll likely do a tutorial or a post just on that soon! I've been using this Makeup Revolution #Revoholic The Matte Edit palette the most.


As you might have known from my social media, I've been making a transition to cruelty-free makeup and I recently replaced my foundation with this Elf Flawless Finish Foundation. It's quickly become a favourite. Not only is it good, medium, buildable coverage, but the colour match for me is brilliant, and it's long-lasting on my oily skin, which doesn't crease.


I've been setting my makeup every single time using this Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Fixing Spray, and I've noticed a difference in how long my makeup lasts. It also helps to leave a matte finish, so my skin doesn't feel as oily throughout the day. Not only is it a great price, but it's lasting me forever so it's great value for money. 


I recently got this NYX Microbrow Pencil and it's a great dupe for the Soap & Glory pencil or the ABH pencil. I much prefer when eyebrow pencils have a very fine tip so I can focus on the detail in my brows rather than just making them thick and dark. It has a spoolie on one side, which is always handy too.


There are 2 TV shows that I've been obsessing over this month. The first one is The Good Place on Netflix. The episodes are short and sweet and always end on a cliffhanger. If the new season wasn't being released weekly, I'd have definitely binge watched the whole lot. It's quirky and fun and if you haven't already seen it, I'd give it a 10/10 so it's totally worth trying!


The other TV series I've loved is Victoria. Eric and I have genuinely watched the whole 2 seasons and the Christmas Special over the last 2 weeks. Which is kind of crazy to watch so much TV but we were hooked. The story is incredibly interesting and has some great side stories throughout too. It tackles important political topics and is just all around a great watch.


And last but by no means least... I feel like we need a drumroll here. No doubt anyone who follows my social media will know exactly what's next. It has to be The Greatest Showman, not just the film - which was fantastic, but the soundtrack too. When I saw it in the cinema I left feeling so elated and I also shed a few tears. I've had the soundtrack on repeat pretty much every day. I literally cannot fault it. To top off a month of my obsession with it, I won this print with the lyrics from 'This Is Me', from Kayley Mills on Instagram. It's proudly showcased on my wall of pictures now.


As you can tell, I fell in love with a lot of new things which, if you haven't tried, you certainly should! If you haven't seen The Greatest Showman or the TV shows, then my gosh where have you been? Get them watched and let me know what you think!
