Woodland Wick Candle 

I have been loving this candle, after having all of the christmas scented candles burning for a few months it was really nice to have something different. This smell is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a cotton/linen scent and fills the room up with a clean fresh smell. One thing I love about this candle is that it’s huge, so there’s no problem with the scent not covering the whole room and it’s not overpowering despite being quite heavily scented in the jar. I love how the wicks of this candle are proper pieces of wood, there aren’t your standard rope wick. As the wicks are wooden it adds to the aroma of the room and gives it a slight woody edge. The colour of the candle fits in perfectly with the scheme of my bedroom as it is all mostly pink white and grey. I would definitely recommend Woodwick candles.

Mac Lipstick Velvet Teddy

On a day to day basis I tend not to go wild with my makeup as I am only going to work. I like to add a little bit of a “your lips but better” colour in the mornings just to help brighten up my face. Sometimes I will just apply a lip balm, but recently i have been adding this Mac lipstick on top and it just gives my lips that extra little bit of colour. This is such a beautiful shade, it’s a dusky/rosy pink and matches my lips really well.

How To Be Calm

Towards the end of January I have been having a bit of trouble with my anxiety. Reading this book when I get home is really comforting. There are so many lovely pages with quotes that help you to relax and feel uplifted, it helps me take my mind off of the things that are getting me down. Sometimes I don’t even know what I am worried about, just sitting and reading really helps to settle my mind for a while. I am really grateful to my lovely mum for gifting me this at Christmas.

Fluffy Socks

January was a super cold month! And there is nothing I love more than putting on a pair of cosy fluffy socks and sitting in front of the fire with the tv on. I don’t always to have a slippers on when I have my feet up on the couch, fluffy socks are the perfect addition! I have collected quite a good collection of fluffy socks now, i don’t think i will be running out any time soon! MY favourite pairs are from Primark, for around £1.90 you can’t get much better can you?

I really hope you enjoyed reading this post. I am going to make it one of my goals to make sure I upload a favourites post every month!

Mini Beauty Haul

Hello lovelies, today I thought I’d show you what I’ve purchased recently. I only picked up a few things but I am really enjoying using everything that I’ve bought!

First off I popped into Primark and my lovely boyfriend kindly bought me a lipstick and lip crayon that I liked the look of. The lipstick is a liquid and is from Primark’s Insta Girl range, I really love the colour of this, when its on the lips it’s slightly darker than it looks in the bottle but I’m okay with that. I do also really like the formula as its a satin finish, it’s not too sticky like some liquid lipsticks can be if they don’t dry matte. I love buying and trying out makeup from Primark because its so affordable and the product is a good quality.

I also bought a lip crayon because I’ve purchased one previously and I really liked the formula and how it looks on the lips, I went for this colour because I thought it was a wearable shade meaning I can wear it day to day. I like how matte this lip crayon is but it’s not drying like some matte lipsticks can be. I’ve tried layering this onto of my liquid lipstick and it gives a really nice ombre effect in the middle of the lips because its a slightly lighter colour and they go really well together! I would definitely recommend trying out the Primark beauty range as you can’t go wrong with the price and there are some lovely products 🙂

The next shop i went to was Superdrug, i really wanted to find a bronzer that i could use as a more subtle contour as well as for bronzing because I don’t like it to be harsh looking or too dark. I went for the Bourjois bronzing powder in the shade 51 which is for lighter skin. I thought that the slight shimmer to it was a really nice touch as it will look good coming into spring and summer. The shade is lovely and it’s a really easier bronze to work with, it blends out very easily and doesn’t leave you with any harsh lines.

I also picked up a Lip Liner from Barry M i thought the shade looked lovely and i would be able to pair it with some of my lipsticks like Honeylove from Mac to give it more depth as it’s slightly darker. I like how this lipliner feels it doesn’t tug and your lips or hurt them like some eyeliners can do, but it’s not the creamiest liner in the world. I’ve also tried putting this all over my lips and then adding a lipgloss and it looks really nice. I would definitely recommend giving Barry M liners a go.

On the Barry M counter it was buy 1 get one half price and i have needed a new pencil sharpener for a long time so i decided to get one! I love the style of it because most pencil sharpeners are black so i thought the pop of pink is a really nice touch. It opens at both ends of the sharpener and their are two different sizes which is good. There is a clear case surrounding it which you open up either end to use. I thought this would be great if you were out and about or travelling because the case will help to keep the sharpener clean!

Superdrug is one of my favourite shops, I can’t go in there without buying something aha, what’s your favourite shop?
