December was the busiest month of my life, working ridiculous hours & getting ready for Christmas meant it flew by faster than ever. It's been so long since I've tried any new makeup items (something that needs to change asap... payday hurry up!) so my favourites this month are fragrance, skincare & a new category... miscellaneous!
Bobble hats are my most-loved winter accessory, I have many of them stored away in my drawers but the one I'm always wearing at the moment is this cream knitted one with a faux fur pom pom. It goes with pretty much everything in my wardrobe, it's cosy & keeps my lil head warm!
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is my favourite cleanser, I'm forever repurchasing it, usually just on it's own but last time I ended up getting the Daily Essentials Kit that included a moisturiser, exfoliator & of course the good old muslin cloths too. Loving C&P so much I had high hopes for the other products, which they do in fact live up to. The Skin Repair Moisturiser is a beautifully light moisturiser with a gentle, fresh fragrance that sinks into the skin almost immediately without leaving behind any sticky residues. It's quickly become my go-to moisturiser now as my skin feels soft & prepped ready for me to apply my makeup.
Aesop is a brand I'm new too, but one I'm glad to have discovered thanks to fellow beauty bloggers! Over the past few months I've been making more of a conscious effort to take time out & pamper myself. I'd been feeling worse for wear & fed up of how run down I'd let myself get, I knew things had to change & taking an hour out in a busy week has really done wonders for me. With that decision I decided to invest in a nice face mask that I could treat myself to & give my skin that little detox it really needed. The Aesop Parsley Seed Masque is clay based & aims to extract impurities to refresh your skin. It does make your skin feel tight whilst its on & also after removing it but nothing a bit of moisturiser can't fix & it's worth it to achieve that fresh skin feeling!
Soap & Glory body sprays are a handbag essential, I've always loved the original pink fragrance but my absolute fave scent from S&G is the Smoothie Star one! You can imagine how excited I was when I realised it was now available in a body spray & even more excited when I was invited to lunch with Soap & Glory who in fact gifted me this as well as some other amazing goodies too. That was definitely a "is this real life?" moment for me!
I've been wearing my Pandora Birthstone rings non-stop since Dom bought me them, they're such lovely rings & mine are so special to me as they represent my lil Pugs birthdays - yep told ya I'm a crazy Pug lady!
