Current Favourites

When going through my to do list of what blog posts I would like posted before New Year it came to my attention that I have not yet posted my November favourites and we are now currently over half way in December. So I decided to call this my 'current favourites' instead or a belated November favourites if we are being truthful! Can't believe this will be my last monthly favourites of the year as my next one will be an overall year favourites. Where has time gone? Where have the days went? Does anybody else find the time goes quicker the more we grow up?!

Taylor Swift 1989 Album
This is weird favourite for me as I am rarely into Taylor Swift but I have seen everyone ranting and raving on about this album so I asked to borrow it off my friend. I love this album so much I think it is definitely a different soundtrack to what she has done before which is probably why I like it as it isn't all lovey dovey rubbish (sorry Taylor fans!). A few songs I love are: Welcome to New York, Style, Shake it off and many many more.

Makeup Revolution Blushing Heart in Candy Queen
Was a bit of a challenge to limit to just one favourite from this brand but this I am going to be creating a post of all my bests from this brand sometime soon (cheeky spoiler alert!). The favourite that stood out the most was one of their blushing hearts and this is in candy queen. These are so pigmented for the small price of £5! I was blown away. I think all of these shades together create such an amazing, healthy look - just don't go too heavy on the brush as I did at first! Really recommend you to put these on your lists to Santa as they are incredible!

Benefit High Beam Highlighter
I have had this product for quite awhile now but one day I was feeling adventurous and wanted to try this and wow I love it. I apply a couple of dots going up my cheek bones then dab/blend this in with my finger. I love the quality of this highlight it is definitely one of the best I have tried for wanting dewy, healthy looks that last a long time. Really easy to blend in as well don't be put off that is a cream highlighter I know I sometimes can!

Mac Lipstick in Rebel
I purchased this lipstick when I was down London for my birthday so if you would like to see what I got click here. I fancied purchasing a purple lipstick because I was feeling very festive at the time plus you can never have enough lipsticks! I did at first find this very dark for my skin but I embraced it and quickly fell in love with it. This has been my everyday lipstick ever since! It is really pigmented, blends on well and lasts a really long time. Perfect.

Origins Super Spot Remover
This is an oldie but goodie that has sat in my drawer for months and months abandoned and replaced by numerous other products. I have been having a bit of an awful breakout on my chin recently (I blame the cold weather!) and when I saw awful breakout I mean awful breakout. I've never had such a giant, under the skin, painful spot as to what this one was. Nothing was working. Nothing was fixing it or reducing the swelling. In fact I thought it was getting bigger but then again when we get spots we always think they look worse than they are. So I decided to give this another try and so far so good, it has reduced the swelling, speeded the process up and finally it is starting to go down. This is a little life savoir for those horrible under the skin spots that never go away!

 The Body Shop's Wild Rose Hand Cream
Hand cream is essential to me in winter it never used to be as I didn't suffer with dry skin but over the past 2 years my hands have been getting a little dry probably due to one hour long baths, uni projects etc! So I have been popping a bit of this hand cream on every morning and evening to keep my hands hydrated. I love the smell of this for starters it smells very mature but rosy that stays with you even after applied. This always hydrates my hands fairly quickly which is great too!

What are your November favourites??

  10. I was exactly the same with the TS album.. I mean it didn't help that all her songs were unavailable to listen to on youtube, so I just gave into the temptation but I do not regret it at all! Also I love the hand cream, although my hands feel too dry for the rose one in winter, I love using the almond hand cream from The body Shop or the hemp in the evening! The hemp doesn't smell as dandy though!

    Lots of love
