Monthly favourites | January

So as its a new year I am going to start a new monthly favourites post. I will include food, books, music, film, beauty and clothes plus anything else that I happen to be loving. Hope you like!


Beauty: I was bought the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish as a birthday present from one of my best friends a while back.  It was a limited edition version with Jasmine and Osmanthus and I’ve been using it pretty religiously for past few months. Its now almost finished but lucky for me my sister bought me the original version for Christmas. My skin is looking so much better because of it.

Make up: No 17 eyebrow shaper in Natural Brown. I have tried a few different products lately but keep coming back to this. Unfortunately I went to my local Boots and tried to get a replacement but they didnt stock it although its online.

Music: I dont know if its because of the nostalgic tunes of Trainspotting that I keep hearing but I have been listening to Blur this month. Their Best Of album to be precise which has all the classics on there. Takes me right back to the 90s and when I was fortunate enough to see them live.

Clothes: I got some New Look vouchers for my birthday and wanted a new bobble hat to keep my head toasty warm. I picked this grey cable knit one up and they still have it in stock at £5.99. You can get it here. I wear it every day its so warm and its so cold!

Books: I am struggling to get through Lord of the Rings as participating in a readalong. Mainly I am reading slimming world magazines and recipes at the moment to help my weight loss.

Food: I am trying out new recipes which you can read in my monthly blog posts but to curb my sweet tooth I am eating these gluten free and probiotic bars from Ohso. Small but perfectly formed you can buy them here.

Happy blogging!
