January/February Favourites

It seems like forever since I did a favourites post! Yaay for trying new products....and liking them :)

Beauty Protector 'Protect & Detangle' leave in conditioner
This has been one of my best beauty discoveries of last year. It has transformed my hair. I use this on damp hair before I blow dry and it leaves my hair soft and shiny with no sign of frizz. It also smells amazing which is a brilliant bonus.

Shaveworks 'The Cool Fix' targeted gel lotion
I shave my eyebrows. Is that weird? i hate plucking and waxing and i'm not brave enough to try threading! The problem with this is that I end up with, not only redness but, dry patches. I have found that if I apply this liberally straight away that these problems are none existent. It's a super quick step but solves all kinds of problems.

Sophia Webster for Birchbox purse
I didn't think much of this when I got it but if I'm just nipping somewhere then this is the perfect size to carry a couple of cards in your pocket. Sometimes you don't need to take a whole bag of things with you.

Mac -Pink Noveau Satin Lipstick
I love how creamy and yet really longlasting, this lipstick is. I don't care what time of year it is, barbie pink is a colour that will always be in season for me. This would be her favourite lipstick.

Shrek the Musical
I literally bought this over a year ago and never fancied watching it until recently. Major mistake on my part. I've had it on continuously ever since. I've never been overly taken with the film but I adore the musical. It's definitely now on my list to see live.

Writing a Diary
I don't know whether I've been watching too much of The Vampire Diaries but I've kind of started a diary. Not a 'Dear Diary, today I....' kind of thing but a thoughts and feelings notebook. When my mind has a lot going on, I stick it down and it keeps them from festering in my brain. I'd definitely recommend it.

Bellá Pierre Cosmetics 'coral cheek & lip stain' 
This isn't a colour I would have gone into a shop and bought because it looks really intense and scary in the pot. That's the best thing about beauty subscription boxes, I suppose. This applies really well with the Real Techniques stippling brush and you can blend it out to a really gorgeous subtle shade. I have been wearing this everyday recently and I love it.

Models Own polish in Obsidian
I love dark nails but black can get kinda boring so this is the perfect alterative. It only takes two coats to get amazing coverage and doesn't chip easily. Models Own are nipping at Barry's heels in terms of my favourite brand polishes.

I don't know if this should count as it was only on for about two weeks but my favourite tv show recently has been The Jump. I'm gutted it's over :'(
It's really made me want to go and live in the snow for a year and learn everything.

What have you been loving recently?
