January Favourites

January FavouritesCan you believe how fast this month has gone?!… January’s almost over already! I have replaced my 30 Days To Love series with a Monthly Favourites series instead. Quite a lot of other bloggers do this already and I wanted to join in because it looks like a lot of fun. I will not only be showing you my favourite beauty products but what I’m reading, listening to and anything else that fits into ‘favourites’.

Here’s the first monthly installment:


OPI - It's Frosty OutsideOPI Nail Polish (It’s Frosty Outside) – This frosted silver is so icy it’s hot! I’ve only had this nail polish for a month and I’ve already worn it on two occasions. The polish doesn’t take long to dry at all (wait 10 minutes in between coats) and it’s recommended not to finish with a top coat as it takes away from the liquid sand effect. I can definitely see myself getting through this 3.75ml bottle in no time at all!

Revlon Fire & IceRevlon Lipstick (Fire & Ice) – This shade has easily become my favourite in my small but frequented lipstick collection. Fire & Ice has a crΓ¨me finish as opposed to a matte one, meaning a waxier formula and providing moisture while still delivering high pigment colour. I can wear this lipstick all night without having to reapply it and it doesn’t dry out my lips. This shade of red is perfect for all skin types as it incorporates blue and yellow undertones.

Xceseri ringsXcesri Rings – These three rings can be worn altogether or separately and they are so dainty and elegant. Being midi rings, I generally wear the two plain gold bands on my knuckles and the jeweled band on my ring finger.

Zest! Weekend pull on jeansZest! Weekend Pull On Jeans – These jeans feature front mock pockets, back patch pockets, a mock fly and a blasting and whiskering surface effect. They are incredibly comfy and the elastic waist is perfect for a curvy girl like me. The colour of the denim is also really nice, I don’t like pale, stonewash blues and these are the perfect mid denim blue.


FitMomFitMom – I talked briefly about FitMom in Thursday’s Liebster Award post *here* and I really do love the concept behind the project. It doesn’t matter what your fitness level is, beginner, intermediate or advanced, these workouts are doable. What I find useful about this regime is that the founder, Nicola, shows you how to do each move and tells you how long to do each move for or how many reps (reps = repetition) you need to do. Each workout only takes 5 minutes – even better!


January has seen some of my favourite artists release new singles including Ellie Goulding, Kelly Clarkson and Kylie Minogue.
