January Favourites

Oh, January - actually the worst month. It feels like it's been dark and rainy for the last 31 days. But actually, all in all, it's not been that bad. The month has definitely dragged, but it's been a good start to the year. This year, I am committed to getting 12 monthly favourites posts out. I know I said this last year (and failed) but God loves a trier right!

Kiehl's Butter Stick - Naturally Nude
Of course, a Kiehl's product in my favourites - so predictable. This isn't a new purchase for me this month, but it's something that I have been using so much. I first bought this last summer and loved it. This winter my lips have been so dry, and wearing lipstick has been a bit of a pain. So, this tinted lip treatment has been perfect to give me a bit of colour whilst nourishing my lips. I've had this on my lips practically every day this month. I really want to get the un-tinted version too.

Dawn French -  Me You A Diary
This was a lovely gift from my parents for Christmas. Over the last month, I have been using this diary to write reflections from my day and things that I am grateful for. I absolutely love Dawn French, and this book is perfectly her. It's so funny and witty. Each month, there is a bit of an introduction giving an insight into Dawn's life and some really funny exercises for you to complete. I can't wait to complete this diary and look back on it in years to come.

Green People Gentle Cleanse and Make-Up Remover
You might have seen that I featured this product in a recent blog post all about Green People. I have been using this cleanser throughout January and it's been the perfect second cleanse. It has a really creamy formula that breaks down makeup so quickly and easily. It leaves my skin feeling really nourished - no dry/tight feeling at all. Also, its vegan, free from SLS, parabens, petrochemicals and alcohol - so it's really kind to your skin.

Neom Happiness Home Mist
A home mist is never something that I have tried before - or ever would have thought about buying. However, this was sent to me as a free gift with purchase and I love it. I've always loved Neom products, so there was really no surprise that I love this too. The scent of this is so gorgeous and it really leaves me feeling uplifted. To use, you spray this mist all around you then breath in through your nose for 7 seconds and out through your mouth for 11 seconds. This would be so lovely to use alongside any mindfulness/meditation practice.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo SPF 30
I fell straight into the social media buzz around this product. I've seen so many bloggers talking about this - and I'm always one to trust in a bloggers opinion. I've been using this for the last month and I've already started to notice a difference in my skin. It appears to have cleared up some of the marks on my face and any blemishes that I have are being cleared up quicker than they normally would. I also love that this has SPF 30 to keep my skin protected from the sun - even in the winter.

MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick - Whirl
Regular readers will know how I love a MAC lipstick. I am currently eagerly anticipating Jamie Genevieve's lipstick to be released. For most of last year, Velvet Teddy was my go-to lipstick. But, for  January this has been my go-to shade. Like I said before, my lips have been so dry this month, so I haven't been wearing much lipstick. But on the weekends, and when I've needed a bit of pick-me-up, I've been reaching for this colour. It's a gorgeous red-nude shade that looks perfect with any makeup look.

There we have it - my first favourites post done. Let's hope there are 11 more to follow. 
I'd love to know what you've been loving this month. Let me know in the comments, or find me on on Instagram/Twitter.
Love, Kate xx

    1. Ahh thank you lovely, you're very sweet! I actually use wallpaper samples. I go to homebase/b&q to get them! I bet its a bit of a learning curve to see where is best to shoot/film in the new house!
