January Favourites

Cue the obligatory 'I can't believe it's already the end of January'. But seriously! Here are a few things I've been loving so far this year.

Reading πŸ‘“  
Wild by Cheryl Strayed. 
First book of the year down. To be fair, I was off to a good start but it's slowed right down since i finished this book. I loved it! It also totally made me want to go on a soul searching trek (not that I'm crazy enough to ever actually do it). 

Watching πŸ“Ί
James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy) returns home to London after years traveling the world. He's been gone so long that people, including his own family, thought he must have died on his trip. He's come back to claim his stake on his father's shipping empire, but the family's dirty business tactics affect his life in terrible ways. Oh yeah, and there's black magic involved. (Source

I'm not massively into period dramas but I'm hooked on this. I also think this is the first thing I've actually seen with Tom Hardy in but πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

Clary Fray is a normal teenager living in Brooklyn with her mother. One day, she discovers that she is descended from a line of Shadowhunters; humans born with angelic blood that fight to protect our world from demons. After her mother is kidnapped, Clary must team up with three Shadowhunters: Jace, Alec and Isabelle and her best friend Simon on a quest to find her mother and recover her past. (Source)

I'm so excited this is back. I love pretty much anything young adult/fantasy. It also helps that the entire cast is crazy beautiful. It's based on 'The Mortal Instruments' book series (which I own but have never read). It's on Netflix if anyone fancies a watch. I'd recommend.

Beauty πŸ’„ πŸ’…
I'm slowly but surely using up a whole range of makeup and a foundation I've finished this month is Revlon 'Colorstay'. It has to be one of the best foundations I've tried. It certainly is one the best I've found in terms of colour match and I'm 100% on the hunt for a cruelty free alternative. 
Another favourite which has also already featured on a monthly favourites in my Kryolan 'camouflage creme' palette. My skin has again been a nightmare recently and I love this to cover any redness.

Going  πŸŽ­
This month I finally got to see Ramin Karimloo live and it was in my home town of all places. I live on the edge of nowhere so I'm always surprised when quality people show up. I'm 100% in love with his voice. Live shows make my soul so happy and hearing him sing Anthem will probably remain my favourite moment of 2017. 

Listening πŸŽΆ 
The La La Land soundtrack. Like the vast majority of us I went to see La La Land this month and I've been listening to the soundtrack ever since. It's so magical and worth every bit of hype it's receiving. ★★★★★

Loving ♡ πŸ“”
I was trying to do a no spend January but I've bought a Happy Planner and discovered Etsy planner stickers so that went out of the window. That being said, I'm now stocked up for at least a couple of months so I'm giving no spend February a go. 

What have you been loving so far this year?
