February Favourites

So I seem to have blinked and missed February!! Hopefully you all had a great month here’s what I was loving in the month of February


No7 creams

I got these for my birthday from my mother in law they are a day cream a night cream and an eye serum. I’ve been using them over a month now and honestly I can see a massive difference! My skin hasn’t broken out as much, it feels softer and looks so much more radiant! They are really good value for money too!!

Nail balm

My bestie made this nail balm herself as part of her new company! Essential aromatherapy by Sara check her out on Facebook. This nail balm has made my nails and cuticles so much stronger and healthy looking and only cost Β£6.50 it’s made with all natural ingredients and smells divine!

The breakdown by B.A.Paris.

I’ll review this in a separate post but WOW this book was good!! I loved her first novel behind closed doors it was in my top 3 of the year!! This doesn’t disappoint it’s just as good!!!!

Miranda

I’ve watched this series a handful of times now and decided to rewatch it this half term, I have fully embraced the idea that Miranda Hart is my spirit animal!!

Fundamentals of caring

A Netflix original. Wow ok this film was brilliant it certainly stopped my whingy arse!! We all face problems we all think our life is shit at points but this film made me re-evaluate my ‘oh god my life is so unfair it sucks’ moments and made me realise it could be worse I’m healthy (ish) I have my own home,own car,a job and I’m loved by some amazing people what more could a person want right??

I think I’ll leave it there for this month’s Favourites sorry it got a little deep there!! Xx

January Favourites 2017

Wow. I don’t know about anyone else but this month flew by for me!! I had a great January overall, it was my birthday so I had a week of celebrating πŸ™‚ I also went to York with the hubby which ticks one place off my 30 before 30 bucket list so yeah pretty good January πŸ™‚ here are the first Favourites of 2017

Pinbadges: These two are from ohhdeer.com and they are so cute!! 

Clarins multi active jour sample. I’ve been looking for a face cream for a while now and heard good things about this one so decided to buy a sample size from eBay as it’s Β£42!!!! This is super soft and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily and clogged up!

Toy story vans: I wanted these so bad when they came out but couldn’t justify spending the money on them as I already have 5 pairs of vans, however my hubby brought these for my Christmas present πŸ™‚

GOT tee. I love Game of Thrones. This is not new news!! My hubby brought me a delightfully pun tastic game of thrones t-shirt from hell bunny tees which I love!!!

Easy. A Netflix original series. Wow ok this series was SO good!! It’s 8episodes long and I completely binge watched it. It’s got so many ‘famous’ faces in it it’s just brilliant!!!

All About Books πŸ“š

Hello my loves so I know I wasn’t going to be online until January but thought this would be a nice little post to do as I received some more books for Christmas πŸ™‚ this post is going to be my Favourite 3 books I read this year….Books I’m looking forward to reading next year and books I didn’t complete this year!!

So here goes

Top 3 books

Miss peregrines peculiar children by Ransom Riggs. I have wanted to watch the film so bad but haven’t managed to yet 😦 I saw this on Amazon and thought let’s give it a go and honestly I’m so glad I did πŸ™‚ I’ve already reviewed these books so won’t go on but honestly if you haven’t read this book I urge you to!

Behind closed doors by B.A.Paris This book stayed with me for a while after I read it,it was so powerful and just kept me on the edge of my seat! 

Girl on the train by Paula Hawkins. I loved this book a few twists and turns you have no idea who’s responsible or what’s going to happen and as usual the movie nowhere near matched up to the book(however Emily blunt did a fab job!)

Books I gave up on in 2016

I’ll preface this by saying I read 21 new books this year( I read more than 21 books but reread some old favs like HP) now for me that was ALOT of books last year I read 5….In the whole year!! So I really got the reading bug again this year so when I started some of these they just didn’t have the pace that some books did so I gave them up and will return to them hopefully next year!

Maze runner, girl with all the gifts,one day,amulet of Samarkand,either,our endless numbered days,all the bright places,gone girl,got book 2,Shakespeare secret and divine by mistake 

 These books are top of my list for next year πŸ™‚

Hollow city (peregrines book 2)The secret ( I read Katherine diamonds novel The teacher this year and loved it) Avalon, The distant hours by Kate Morton an author I discovered this year,The marble collector by Cecilia Ahern I love her novels, Nerve, The alchemist a series of novels based around Nicholas Flamel, The Danish girl I sobbed like a baby at this film so want to read the book! Bonkers by Jenifer Saunders I just adore this woman!! Zoo by James Patterson and lastly The architects apprentice πŸ™‚

My garnet flower ring. I got this for my birthday a fair few years ago and have taken to wearing it every day as it’s my birthstone.

Hand food by soap&glory. This smells divine!! It’s such a lovely product and you don’t need too much at a time. These months my hands get so dry so this really helps to revive my hands!!

October FavouritesΒ 

I still can’t get over how quick this year is going!! Like how?? Anyways loves here is my October Favourites list x

Home-made Bread. Why yes I did get inspired by bake off!! My husband made some white bread when he was off and I decided I wanted a go too I decided to make a wholemeal bread and it turned out pretty good even the husband liked it!!

16personalities.com I watch anastasjia Louise on YouTube religiously i just adore her she’s such a cute little bean honestly you need to watch her videos! Anyway she did a video on personality types and linked the website so I took the test and turns out I’m an advocate infj which means introverted intuitive feeling judging. It’s very interesting finding out what it reveals! 

Mega matte lipstick by seventeen. This colour is just so beautiful I’m going to do a full review later on in a separate post but this is my new favourite colour! 

Behind closed doors book. OMG this book was SO good!! If you enjoyed gone girl and girl on the train I fully recommend this book the story is brilliant again I’ll be reviewing this properly in my October reading list post. 

Cornwall holiday. I love Cornwall you should all know that by now!!! I had such a lovely time it’s so nice to get away πŸ™‚

In Falmouth on holiday I had quite possibly the best ever burger in a place called The meat counter. Handmade burgers in a resteraunt that has an old school 50’s aesthetic and has sourced materials from everywhere to create a unique dining experience. Such good food great service awesome xx

September Favourites

Wow. How did we get to the end of September already? September has been a bit of a jam packed month for me and I have neglected my blog slightly for that I apologise! Here’s what I loved in the month of September

The girl on the train. Really good book! Totally gripped from the start finished it in a day I just couldn’t leave it!! I will review this properly along with my other September reads in a separate post.

Fitbit I have fallen back in love with my fitbit and exercise! It is such a nice feeling seeing all green light up hitting every daily goal you’d set!!

Gemstone rings. I am loving my gemstone jewellery at the moment in particular I am wearing these rings as a set as I feel they compliment each other nicely

Bronze,blush,highlight from makeup revolution. I love this pallet the powders are really nicely pigmented and give good coverage that lasts the blush is slightly too pink for my colouring but I use the bronze to contour and define my cheekbones and the highlight I just want to put all over my face it’s so shimmery and pretty!! Definitely recommend I only paid Β£3 for this πŸ™‚

Creighton’s frizz no more. Curly thick hair and windy,rainy,humid,dry weather makes a frizz ball 😦 this serum is so lovely! It’s lightweight and doesn’t weigh my hair down it smells amazing and a little goes a long way. It also doesn’t affect the look of my hair so much some serums have made my hair look greasy in the past which is not a great look!

Volume mascara by make up revolution This mascara beats all mascaras hands down!! Well in my opinion anyway!! It’s so light it doesn’t weigh down my eyelashes and it doesn’t clump up and flake off!! It’s such a brilliant bargain mascara!

That’s it September done!!
