December was a mixture of emotions for me. Obviously the Christmassy atmosphere helped the days when the dark and cold outside was not so inviting. I had a month off of college and should have done a lot more work over this time. It’s good to remember that you are allowed to relax and indulge. I just need to learn the middle ground I either over indulge or run myself into the ground doing too much.
Mac Highlighter: Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skin finish
I may be a bit behind on this one. I have heard a lot about this product and finally decided to give it a go when I had a Mac voucher to spend. I love the look that it creates. It will be a handy product when strobing becomes ever more the thing to do.
PINK Leopard Lace Lightly Lined Bra in Neon Coral
I only got this bra for Christmas and I can already say it’s one of my favourite things. I may be slightly swayed because it’s been a while since I’ve worn a bra that fits properly. Even so I love the colour which I’m sure will look even better with a tan and the band at the bottom is a simple design yet eye catching.
Remington Silk Curling Wand
Usually I tend to curl my hair with my straighteners which can give a nice affect however I wanted to have more control over the result. The wand gives me this as I can either wrap the hair round at the thick end for larger curls or the thinner end for ringlets.
My one is good as well because you can change the temperature which is especially great for me as I have thin hair so can be easily damaged. It also comes with a heat resistant glove which is great as I don’t have to be to worried about burning myself. I haven’t tested many wands, however this one has been proving good so far.
Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15 by Clinique
The review of this is to come but it has been a definite can’t live without. Whether I am using it as a base under a mass of make up or as a key part of my face make up with just a light layer of powder on top it has been a great buy.
A bit cheesy I know. I was working on Christmas so it wasn’t even what it normally is. However spending time with family and friends, watching soppy Christmas films and eating probably too many chocolates was much needed. My Christmas dinner with my friends was just Pizza as no one had the time to cook, but in a decorated room with crackers was just as good for celebration. Christmas dinner is my favourite dinner, it just made it that bit special on Christmas day as that was my only one of the season.
So that’s my December favourites. I am looking forward to see what I enjoy next month, and next year. I haven’t been blogging for very long at all so I look forward to continuing and developing this venture. I hope everyone enjoys welcoming in the new year.
