January Favourites 2017

Can you believe it is almost the end of January already?! Because I certainly can't...

Hello everyone! Today I have a couple of favourite items to talk through, and truth be told that there were lots of things that I loved this month, however I have a select few I'm going to talk about.

MAC Eyeshadows

There is something addicting about filling MAC Eyeshadow palettes, and throughout January I've purchased so many in such a short period of time that it is safe to say that I am a self confessed addict. Following getting my hands on Expensive Pink, Atlantic Blue, Gorgeous Gold and Sushi Flower (aka the four shadows I purchased in 24 hours)- (you can read here), a couple of days ago I picked up Black Tied which is a colour I have been meaning to add to my cool toned palette for ages, as I think it will be a really nice colour for an intense smokey eye.

Bobbi Brown Almost Pink Lipstick

I spoke about this lipstick in my 'Top 5 Festive Nudes' post, and as I said there, I love the fact that this lipstick is a perfect ballerina pink and really effortless/easy to wear. The consistency of the lipstick is slightly thicker, and usually this is something I avoid, however I really like this lipstick to throw on if I'm in a hurry, especially as it goes with everything.

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Lana

My lovely friend Becky got me this lipstick for Christmas, and all month this has been my go to red lip. It is so easy to wear and really compliments my skin tone. I love it, and thats all I really have to say! (read more here.)

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Perfume

Similarly to Lana, I received this perfume for Christmas and I have worn it everyday since. Its fruity and floral and really long lasting, and I get so many compliments when I wear it that it makes me want to wear it more! I now consider it as one of my signature scents, and that says a lot about me as it takes a lot for me to really fall for a perfume! (read more.)

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat

I decided that this year I wanted to make more of an effort with my nails, and I think there has only been a couple of days in January where I haven't had polish on my nails, and I love it. This month I got my hands on the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat and I can confidently say that this will be my go to top coat forever. It works amazingly on my nails who are often not keen on products, and frankly I couldn't be happier. (I also got my hands on Game of Chromes from the Miracle Gel collection- you can read more here!)

Ted Baker Mihai Bag

And finally, my new handbag in my collection that is well and truly my baby. I've been wanting to get my hands on a medium sized black bag perfect for both day and night for what feels like forever. I'd had my eyes on a couple of different styles over the months, however the other day I saw this bag online at Ted Baker and fell involve with it instantly, knowing that it was the one. After a quick look around in Bluewater Shopping Centre at the weekend our paths eventually crossed and I knew that it was everything I wanted and more. Its chic, will got with anything and everything whilst it also fits my daytime essentials. (It was even more of a bonus when I remembered I'd get my 15% student discount as well- winning!)

And they are my favourites of this month! What have you been loving?
