January Favourites.


My current favourite nail polish combination! The Technic glitter polish is a good dupe for OPIs Rainbow Connection and it looks great layered over the subtle lilac shade of Utopia.
Utopia has been my favourite polish for some time now, it looks lovely alone or with any shade of glitter on top.


I can honestly say I don't have a single split end, despite blow drying and straightening my hair every day, so I probably don't really need this but it makes my hair even more glossy and smooth!
It's a bit pricey but definitely worth the money in my opinion (you can see my full review here), and it should last you awhile since you only need to apply a small amount on the ends of damp hair. 


Since I first started using St. Tropez self tanning products almost a year ago, I've not looked back. I can't imagine using anything else, even if they are slightly on the pricier side. This mousse is so easy to apply, I use a mitt, and I've never had any problems with streaking or orange bits. The bronzed guide colour means you simply cannot go wrong! 


I was sent these huge bottles of Aussie to celebrate the launch of the new bigger sizes (500ml) of shampoo and conditioners. I've always been a big fan of Aussie hair products, they smell amazing and always leave my hair in great condition.


I adore this cleanser, it leaves my skin feeling so fresh and soft! No other cleanser has this affect on my skin. I've been using this with my Clarisonic in recent times and I just love it. I'm not massively phased by natural skincare (although a fair amount of what I buy is natural to be honest, but I don't set out to buy only natural products) but this is a really gentle way to cleanse skin.
The price makes me have a small breakdown (I was given this bottle), and I know I'm going to need to repurchase it soon. I'm not entirely sure whether I will repurchase this as the price seems a bit steep for a cleanser, but I do love it. I think I'll see how I live without it first and maybe treat myself later on at some point. 


I got this free sample for spending a ridiculous amount at Liz Earle, and I think I shall be purchasing a full sized bottle soon. I suffer from sensitive eyes, the skin around them can get dry and sore and my actual eyes are a nightmare - always dry, red, sore and hot! I also find that my eye makeup never really ever goes, there is always a small amount which clings there. 
This product really soothes and cools the eye area, while also removing any last traces of makeup. It's ideal if, like me, you suffer from sensitive eyes!

  1. The Liz Earle eyebright is brilliant! It really helps when your eyes are puffy and sore, I always put it in the fridge for a cold 'kick', I am obsessed with that Technic polish, got it a few weeks ago! I need to try Moroccan Oil so badly, keep forgetting about it though! x

  30. I get REALLY dry and sore skin around my eyes! Never used to get it, but I used to wear Benefit's tinted moisturiser (You Rebel?) everyday when I was younger and it has an spf in it. It does say on the back not to apply around the eyes but I was like 15 and never read it. It was fine at first but after 6 months my eyes got really sore and dry and it's pretty much been like that on and off ever since! Can't wear any foundations with an spf.

    Soooo I think I'll give the Liz Earle a try! Thanks x

  43. I just started using the Moroccan Oil for Light Coloured and Fine Hair and can't believe how silky and shiny it makes my hair! Being a blonde, split ends are sort of inevitable and it's a miracle worker.

    How much does that large bottle retail for??

    Happy Saturday!
