Hard to believe it is already February! Reflecting back on the month of January I have chosen a few my favourites in the areas of FASHION & BEAUTY, HEALTH & FITNESS, FOOD & DRINK and LIFESTYLE. Monthly favourites are one of my favourites from bloggers and YouTubers so I hope you enjoy!
FASHION & BEAUTY
Garnier Skinactive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream
That is a real mouthful eh?! Anyways, I am beyond obsessed with this skin cream. The gel texture to it is so refreshing and the moisture it has put back into my face is amazing.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid
The first time I tried a MAC foundation was about four years ago and the one I chose was just too harsh for my skin. For this reason, I always assumed that MAC foundations would all be too harsh for my skin. It wasn’t until I tried the Studio Fix Fluid that I discovered there was indeed a MAC foundation for me. It is easy to apply, buildable and hasn’t caused any breakouts that the previous foundation did.
Basic Tees and Statement Necklaces
January has been all about comfort for me. I usually wait until spring to take advantage of the basic tee and statement necklace style – however, we had an unusually warm January and so this style jumped into the daily wardrobe a bit early. I love taking something simple and adding a little something to it to jazz it up!
I know what you are thinking – socks?! Why on earth would socks be in your JANUARY FAVOURITES? Well, not just any socks my darlings. I am talking big, comfy wool socks – you know the ones. They look adorable with leggings or a cute night shirt, and let’s face it they are the comfiest things you’ll ever put on your feet. This January I basically lived in socks and leggings or socks and cute nighties.
HEALTH & FITNESS
Fitness Marshall YouTube Videos
I am one of the least athletic, most uncoordinated people you will ever meet and for this reason, I basically despise working out. When I discovered the Fitness Marshall I was pleasantly surprised because not only are the workouts fun and easy – I actually look forward to them!
FOOD & DRINK
Gin and tonic with lime
This is my new favourite drink. Not only do I feel really cool ordering it – the tonic water helps to avoid hangovers!
Cupcakes with frosting – from scratch!
Baking (and eating) cupcakes could easily be a favourite for me every month, what is different for January is that I discovered making my own frosting from scratch. There is simply no comparison to store bought frosting. Keep an eye out in the near future – I just might share a recipe or two!
Lauren Conrad Style
Who doesn’t love LC? She is the epitome of style and class. Lauren’s book on style is my kind of style book because while she gives advice and her opinions – she doesn’t place restrictions and rules on what style has to be. Lauren Conrad Beauty and Lauren Conrad Celebrate are definitely on my want list now!
