December Favourites

I'm back in Leigh On Sea now and the Wifi's been terrible, I've really struggled to get this post up today! I hope you had an amazing New Years Eve/Day and that 2016 has been great for you so far! I can't believe that this is already my first post of 2016, where has the time gone?! I've never done a favourites before, but I thought it was about time to do one and let you know what I've been loving in the last month of 2015.

1. Savour the Season Yankee Candle

The first thing that I've been loving this month is Yankee Candle's Savour the Season candle. This Yankee Candle is new for the 2015 and if you read my Christmas Tag you will know that, for me this scent brings back a lot of Childhood memories. I absolutely love this smell and have been burning this candle as much as I possibly can over the month of December. It reminds me of a mix of cinnamon, Christmas and cookies and so is the ideal scent when you'd like you home to smell festive this season.

2. Lush Dashing Santa Bath Bomb

When I picked this Bath Bomb up with a number of other Lush products from the 2015 Christmas collection, I really didn't expect it to be my favourite! This was because I had also picked up some of the reappearance products I've used and loved in the past. However, I absolutely love the scent and the colours used in this Bath Bomb and it quickly made its way to being my favourite (read more here).

3. Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks, No.1 and No.107

I've been using more darker/redder coloured lipsticks this winter, rather than the nude colour lipsticks I go to on a day to day basis.  No.107 as it's the perfect plum toned colour that isn't too dark or too purple, I've used it a lot since autumn, into winter/December; No.1 is the perfect bright red which was the perfect shade to wear on Christmas Day! 

4. Hollister Patterned Blanket Cardigan

I took a trip to Westfield Shopping Centre at the beginning of December for the first time and bought this cardigan as I didn't have enough warm clothes for the winter weather; ever since I've struggled to take it off! It's so warm and is the perfect thing to wear when your out and about Christmas shopping or even taking a walk in the cooler weather.

5. 'All I Want for Christmas' by Mariah Carey

I took a dance workshop at my old dance school when I came back from Dance School at the beginning of December and we danced to this song. Ever since I've had it on repeat (along with the other songs in my Christmas playlist, but this has to be my favourite) and I really can't get enough of it!

6. L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Mono Eyeshadow, Golden Nude

This has been my go to eyeshadow colour throughout the whole of December, especially as the gold shade goes perfectly with a red lip which is perfect during the festive season. It's such a lovely colour and is so easy to put on; the glittery shade adds a touch of glamour which has been perfect to wear this December.

7. Dorothy Perkins Ivory Fairisle Christmas Jumper

When I got back from Dance School I realised that I didn't own a Christmas jumper; being a lover of Christmas this really shocked me! Therefore, as soon as I could I took a trip to my local shopping centre and picked up this jumper from Outfit. This has been perfect for keeping me warm this Christmas and I've basically been alternating this jumper with the cardigan mentioned as #4!

8. Eyelash Extensions

If you read my blog post about these you will know that I got eyelash extensions for the first time this month; I'm completely hooked, I've even been back to have them infilled since because I love them so much! I've felt so much more confident since I've had them done. I can even go out and about in the day without wearing makeup due to the confidence boost; this is definitely a first for me!

I hope you enjoyed reading my first favourites post, what were your favourites from December? Thanks for reading,

Let's keep in touch
