January Favourites

Friday, 29 January 2016

Another month has passed me by, and although January has on the whole been a bit of a dreary one (what with tons of exams and constant wind, rain and coldness), I have still found several favourites from the past few weeks. These particular favourites hold quite a variation of products-fashion, beauty, accessories, and even a DVD series. On the whole though, I feel as though this post is going to be quite a chatty one, so please have a good read, and I really hope you all enjoy it!

Bowers&Wilkins Headphones-I got these earlier this month after my Beats headphones failed me yet again. For ages I had desperately pined for a pair of Beats headphones as though they were the holy grail of the headphone world, but after having them break on me several times I was far from impressed. That's when I stumbled upon these Bowers&Wilkins ones-very retro and compact with amazing sound quality, they definitely live up to their excellent reviews. What's more, with a two year guarantee from John Lewis, I can sleep easy knowing that I'm in safe hands if they are to break (although fingers crossed, they won't!)

Boyfriend Jeans-For seemingly forever I have wandered in and out of shops wondering whether this style of jeans would do anything at all for me. So set in my ways with skinny jeans, I was pretty terrified to escape my comfort zone...but with this beautiful pair from M&S, I can safely say that I am glad I have made the transition. These particular ones sit just below my waist, and feel incredibly comfy and easy to move around in. They also look pretty fab when worn with a tucked in tshirt and a bomber jacket, even if I do say so myself.

Olivia Burton Watch-This was another replacement item, after my Daisy Dixon watch decided to let me down greatly (it's rim of rose gold all but chipped away despite the fact that I only wore it on a couple of occasions). After drooling over all the beautiful Olivia Burton watches for quite some time (and being kind of intrigued considering we share the same name), I trusted that such a brand would have their items made to a much better standard than my previous watch. This particular one (you can bask in its cuteness just below!) cost me £70, but I have already worn it several times and am simply in love with its style and elegance.

Miss Selfridge Blouse-This was one of the items that I bought from the Boxing Days Sales, and is by far my favourite as well! It's quite spring-appropriate, I have to admit, but it fits so well and just generally looks so girly and pretty. The way it flows and floats about is gorgeous, and the pattern on it only entices me ever more (as well as the little tie up feature on the front).

NYX Eyebrow Gel-I already own the NYX Brow Pomade, and have to admit that I am pretty in love with it! I adore how you can make you brows look either incredibly subtle or a lot bolder very simply, and with just the stroke of some product on a brush. Therefore, after seeing many other bloggers and youtubers both use and recommend the NYX Brow Gel I decided to also try that out. In the shade Brunette, just like my pomade, this cost me only £5.50 and I can safely say that I love it as much as (if not more than) my brow pomade. It's little squeezy bottle makes it perfect to pop in my handbag/travel bag, and it's consistency makes my brow routine very quick and easy.

Too Faced Melted Lipstick-Put simply, I am obsessed with this lipstick. Bought just before the new year, I have now wore it on a number of occasions and cannot get enough of it-it's shade is an insane nude, and it's bottle shape and consistency make it easy to apply and wear. It's not too thick and clogged on my lips, but it's staying power is enough that it will stick in place even while I eat and drink. 

Futurama-After catching Futurama on Pick Tv a few times over the Christmas period, I quite quickly became hooked and shortly after purchased this DVD box set of season four from Amazon. As a big fan of the Simpsons, I have to say that I really love this programme as well-it contains the same standard of great characters and humour as the Simpsons but is so different and unique that I can't wait to see more episodes and buy more box sets, (although I have a long way to go before I catch up with the amount of Simpsons DVD's I own!)

And that's another favourites done and dusted for another month....

Thank you for reading,
