January Favourites


Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

I bought this foundation while waiting for my train at Waterloo station. While it was an impulse buy, it was something that I had been thinking about picking up for a long time. I'm going to do a full review on this so I will keep this summary brief. I LOVE IT! It's so easily to apply and great for building coverage. I've only had it about 3 weeks, but it has already become a staple in my everyday makeup routine.

Maybelline 14hr Lipstick in Always Plum

After wearing similar lipstick shades for years I decided to try something a little different and go for a plum shade. Not only am I obsessed with the 'Always Plum' shade by Maybelline, but the quality is brilliant too. I can apply this in the morning and maybe have a few retouches after I have eaten but otherwise it will last all day. It's extremely moisturising and I'm so happy I got my hands on it as I have been after something like this for a long time.

Prison Break

I feel like I have been talking about Prison Break all the time recently, it just seems to find a way to wriggle into every post. It will be of no surprise that it is one of my clear favourites for this month. I wrote a whole post a few weeks ago about why I love it so much which you can read here. I encourage you to watch a least the first 5 episodes (it's on Netflix) before you make a decision, I promise you won't regret it!  

Chromecast

For Christmas this year, my brother bought me a Chromecast to use with my TV. As there a no ariel cables in my University room and my internal ariel is practically useless, I really missed being able to put on my TV, even if it was for a bit of background noise. My Brother managed to find the Chromecast which basically means that you can stream Netflix, Youtube, BBC iPlayer and a whole bunch of other apps from your phone or laptop on to your TV. I have been using it non-stop since I got it.

The Simple Things Magazine

I stumbled across The Simple Things magazine by accident when I bought it for one of my University units. The byline for the magazine reads 'taking time to live well'. It's full of beautiful pictures, tasty recipes and brilliantly written articles. I had never heard of it before, but can already tell it is going to become one of my monthly must-haves.

What have you been loving this month?
