(This is going up a bit later than I intended, with in now being nearly halfway through February! But oh well, here are my January Favourites.)
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.
There has been so much hype about the product for a while, but I've been a bit behind the times and only tried it for the first time at the end of December. But now I can honestly say I cannot live without it! I could go on and on about how much I love it and how amazing it is but that would just get boring! SO here's my four reasons why I think this product is fabulous.
- It lifts away all of the dirt and make-up from your face so effortlessly! No rubbing and scrubbing needed, just wipe gently all over your face and eyes and ta-da! All gone!
- It removes ALL of your make-up! I used to use face wipes before I discovered this micellar water and no matter how much I scrubbed my face there always used to be some make-up still left on. So this stuff is an absolute god send!
- It makes my skin feel so smooth and soft. Many products and face wipes I've used before have left my skin feeling really dry and irritated, but this feels like its cleaned my face well without dehydrating it.
- I've noticed I get fewer spots and I get them less often since I have been using this product. I think it's probably because it cleans my skin more thoroughly, and cleaner skin = less spots and blemishes.

Cavalier Youth - You Me At Six
I'm going to see You Me at Six live in couple of days time (SO EXCITED) so to say I've been obsessively listening to this album for the last month would be an understatement... I've loved this band for a long time now and their previous three albums are still some of my favourites to listen to. But I have to admit this one didn't really stand out to me when it was released last year. Not that I thought it was bad, I just preferred some of their older ones. But it's really grown on me over the last couple of months and now I can't stop listening to it! You Me at Six always seem to have really amazing lyrics that you want to sing along to and the songs on this album are no exception. My personal favourite songs off the album are 'Cold Night' and 'Carpe Diem'.
Rimmel London Eyeshadow
I've had a lot of love for Rimmel products this last month, and these two have been my absolute favourites. These are both products that I have used every single day (that I've worn make-up) throughout January, as they are perfect for creating a natural, every-day make-up look. The eyeshadow is in 'Smoky Quartz'. It's a gorgeous shimmery rose-gold colour. It looks great either alone with some mascara or as a base for a more smoky eye look. The blush is in 'Santa Rose'. The reason I love this so much it that it is the perfect colour for my skin tone as it is the shade I would naturally blush. I find a lot of blushes to bright or pinky for my skin but this one works wonderfully and creates the perfect 'natural' look.
Pantene Pro-V - Advanced Keratin Repair - Split End Fuser
I ran out of this about two weeks ago and have really noticed the difference in my hair. The ends are already starting to look and feel more dry and brittle! So I definitely need to pick some more up as soon as possible.
I'm currently in the process of organising a trip through Italy with my fiancé, so I've been loving looking to this book for inspiration. It's a small-ish book so it doesn't overload you with information, but it does have some really great details about all the different places in Italy. I've spent many nights looking through it and getting all overexcited to go and its given me lots of great ideas of places to visit. I've also recently ordered the Lonely Planet's Italy guidebook and an Italian phrase book. So I'm excited for them to arrive soon so I can get more inspiration of places to stay and also hopefully learn a little bit of the language before I go!
This been my favourite scent for January. I've always had a bit of an obsession with The Body Shop's body sprays and perfumes (I have quite a large collection of them). The have such a natural, fresh scent which I love. The Fijian Water Lotus is my go to body spray at the moment and I think it's probably my favourite scent that they do. It's really light, fresh and... it smells of water lotus? I really don't know how to describe scents. The best advice I can give is to get down to The Body Shop and give it a sniff, and then you'll know why I love it!
