January Favourites

January Favourites.
Yay! I love when it gets to the end of a month, because my most favourite posts to do are my monthly favourites! I honestly just can't get my head around the fact that we are now one month into 2012, it feels like Christmas was just yesterday (yes, I know I am always coming out with clich├ęs like that..) This month I have tried out a lot of new things, mostly because of presents that I was given on Christmas and my birthday. I'll just dive straight in because if I don't, I will be rambling all day (even more than I already have).
Soap & Glory - Face Soap and Clarity - This is a really good scrub for using daily, I love how clean and refreshed it leaves me feeling.

Amazon Kindle - I really love my kindle, one of the cool things about it is every time you turn it off, it leaves a different image on the screen (and these images don't even use any battery!) I'll do a review on it soon. That might even be my next post, would you interested in reading that?

Vampire Shift - Tim O'Rourke (book 1 of the Kiera Hudson series) - Bought this from the kindle store for less than £1 and I love it! I hadn't heard of it before but I am glad I found it.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (shade 2) - Always featured in my favourites! I am sure you have heard of this, so I won't go into much detail, apart from the fact that it is amazing! Possible the best concealer I have ever used. This is my second tube of it. The one downside is the writing ALWAYS rubs off! 

Gossip Girl Season 1 & 2 - My new TV discovery. I was bought season 1 for my Christmas, and I loved it so much that I went out and bought the second one. Highly recommend it.

One Direction - Up All Night -My top listened to CD of the month, so incredibly catchy!

Garnier BB Cream - I have used this most days this month because it has a nice natural finish which I like for school. A review coming on this as well!

VO5 Extreme Style Texturising Gum - This was actually my brother's but he didn't like it but I did so he gave me it! It's great for taming my frizz and making my curls curlier and straightened hair straighter!

Vera Wang Princess (perfume) - A fandabydosy perfume. Nuff said.

Vaseline Rosy Lips - this is tinted pink, so it gives you smooth lips and a hint of colour (the perfect combo!)

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion - used this every single stinking day of January, it makes my skin super soft and works as a great primer for my foundation.

So that is my favourites of January 2012. Quite long I know, but everything had to be said!

  6. I love the soap and glory face wash. It smells so lovely and it's worked wonders on my skin.
    Also, I was really considering getting myself the kindle but I guess I'm a bit weird because the only reason I haven't got one is that I just love the feel of an actual book, if you know what I mean?
