January Favourites

Well aren't you glad that's over. January sucks.
Every year it always feels like a never ending month. It has been so, so cold. Everyone is broke, not drinking, and eating healthily. Just no. But, onwards and upwards now as we head into February. Then again, don't get me started on Valentines Day's!!
Even though it's the worst month of the year, January has brought me some pretty great favourites. It's definitely been a month where I have been looking after myself, in terms of my health and my skincare, and I feel that is reflected in my favourites this month. So, without further ado...
I first heard about this product from the Queen of beauty, Nikke Tutorials. This girl loves to bake, and I saw her using this product in one of her videos. I always have an issue with the concealer on my under eyes creasing. This product totally gets rid of that. I apply a generous amount of the powder under my eyes after applying foundation and concealer. I then leave this to bake for about 5 minutes, then I wipe the excess powder away. This really helps to set my under eye with no creasing in sight. I also use this product on my T-zone and chin to help minimise my oily shine. 

The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**K by Sarah Knight

2017 is going to be the year where I read more. So to begin this, I have been reading this fantastic book by Sarah Knight. It's a spin on The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (another book I must read). I really love the premise of this book. We all have a certain amount of fucks (sorry mum!) that we can give to situations, whether that is money, time or effort. There is absolutely no point wasting them on things that don't matter to us or things that we just don't care about. Since reading this book, I have realised I do too much to please other people and I waste too much time worrying what other people will think of me. Not anymore!

I got this fragrance in my M&S beauty advent calendar. I feel in love with this right from the first use, and has been pretty much all I have been wearing since Christmas. I had never heard of this brand before, but I'm so glad I have been introduced to them. I had a browse around their website and they have some really beautiful products. Their fragrances are made from real flowers, fruits and spices. It says that this perfume contains about a pound ojasmine and white narcissus. I'm really into anything that is natural and isn't going to irritate my skin. 

All my life, I feel I have been on a quest for the perfect foundation. Never really finding quite the right one. But, I finally think that search might be over. I was attracted to this product as it they had two variations, one for normal/dry skin and the other for oily/combination skin. This product goes onto the skin so smoothly and blends in really well. It is a high coverage product, but it doesn't look thick and cakey like some other foundations can. It gives me all the coverage that I need and keeps my oily skin at bay, whilst still leaving a nice glow. 

You may have seen that I am currently training for a half marathon, see my latest update post here. I have been using this FitBit every day since Christmas. I love the running setting for my training, but I also love how it spurs me on to move more throughout the day. My job is largely done sitting down, so the hourly reminders to move are really helpful to me. I'm am going to be doing a full review post on this product, so stay tuned. 

Pixi Glow TonicYou may have seen my recent blog post about this product, so I won't bang on about it too much here too. I have been obsessed with this product throughout January and my skin has loved me for it. Like it says on the tin, it gives my skin a lovely glow and has brightened my normally dull complexion. 
What have been some of your January favourites? I'd love for you to share them with me in the comments. 
Love, Kate xx
