My January Favourites ♥

I love reading these on my favourite blogs, and since its a new year and all I thought I too could introduce you to my monthly favourites each month.
Let me know if you enjoy reading this post - I'm hoping to stay on board and post one of these types of posts each month, bringing you my favourite beauty products, items of clothing, jewelry, books ect and hopefully inspire you in some way.

So here we go.

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Stop - £29.50 - Benefit - Link.

You will be quite shocked to know that I've rarely tried many benefit products, I think the price scares me a little bit sometimes because I don't want to feel like I've wasted my money if I buy something that is "hyped" about isn't really that good. Benefit products in the blogger world are "hyped" about a lot I think.
This cheeky sweet stop blush set was given to me as a gift by my best friend for Christmas and I can honestly say "where have you been all my life" this little tin has a blush for every season and the colours are just spot on.
I normally stick to the one blush all year round, I use a bronzer in the summer but that's been about it.
You can see that dandelion and CORALlista have been my go to's this month, I have loved using CORALista and adding a bit of dandelion right on the apples of my cheeks.
I will definitely purchase this tin again, the colours are all so pretty and the packaging is beyond adorable, meaning I can take it everywhere with me.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - £3.33 - Boots - Link.

I first learned about this product through blogging and I bought a bottle a few months ago last year and I was so impressed, its now included in my everyday routine.
I use it at night to remove make up - it literally just melts everything away onto a cotton pad and leaves me with fresh skin - my skin has cleared up a lot since using this - and its a godsend after a night out, you can take your make up off without a mirror.
I also use it every morning too.
A bottle can last me around 3 months and its normally about £4.99 - Boots have a third off the price at the minute - so if you've been wanting to try a micellar cleansing water - this one by Garnier is fantastic.

Real Techniques Brushes - Nicks Picks Make Up Brush Set - £29.99 - Boots - Link & The Core Collection - £21.99 - Boots - Link.

I don't know where these brushes have been all my life either.
My husband bought me the Nick's Pick's Make- Up Brush Set for Christmas last year and I was addicted ever since, so much so I ended up treating myself to The Core Collection a few days later.
The Core Collection has made my life so much easier with each individual brush having its own unique job - the buffing brush is a fave of mine - and the eyeliner brush from the Nick's Pick's Collection is really good at helping me me add detail to my eyebrow's.
If your after a good quality make up brush set then these brushes should be your number one purchase.

Peacocks Handbag - £6.20 - Select Scarf - £2.00- bought in-store.

These were my monthly bargains, I was after a new black bag for everyday use and this one happened to be reduced from £15 too £8 in the sale at Peacocks and with a cheeky 20% staff discount on top I bought it for £6.20 - bargain -so it cost next to nothing and I got my new bag.
I also picked up this scarf in the Select sale, I'm still a huge fan of checked prints and this scarf was perfect to go with my work wear and this was reduced from £4.00 to £2.00 - I love the pink detail on it.

Paper Towns - John Green - Amazon - £3.85 - Link.

After reading The Fault In Our Stars in January last year and seeing the film, I couldn't wait to read this book, it will be out later this year as a film and with all films by John Green, I think I prefer to read the book first.
I'm almost finished with it and I will be happy to do a review if anyone wants me too.
The book has gripped me from the start and it has been hard to put down - John Green is a different author to someone I'd normally read but what I like about his stories is that they are all unique and different - his books have been hard to put down.

Soooo.... that's it for my January favourites - I hope you enjoyed this post and I will be back next month with my February favourites.
