Can you believe it’s 2018!? It feels so strange to look back at the things I loved most last month because Christmas already feels so far away! December is always one of the busiest months and one full of spending, gifts, and food, so I have a few favourites to share with you here!
Film Star Bronze and Glow
& The Luxury Palette, Dolce Vita
If you read my What I Got For Christmas post you’ll know that these products were on my Christmas list and I was gifted them both by my wonderful partner. I’ve lusted after these for a while now but just couldn’t justify spending that kind of money on myself (given the amount of beauty products I already have). I was applying these products a mere half an hour after unwrapping them, and have been in love ever since. The bronze and glow is the most subtle yet effective contour product I’ve ever used and is worth every penny.
Another Christmas gift, this set contains shades; Splendore Shimmer, Beso, and Caramello. Beso being my favourite (worn below) is the most perfect, foolproof true red colour. These last amazingly through eating, drinking and anything else you may do on a day to day basis. They are quite drying so I usually remove it myself after around 5 hours (when I find that it starts to become uncomfortable).
I hadn’t heard of MEMI until recently when I was sent a couple of their products to try, but it was love at first sight. The Millennial palette contains the most gorgeous shades and hosts a perfect mixture of both mattes and shimmers, and the lipstick is nude which works well with pretty much any make up look! Another bonus is the packaging which has a really high end feel to it, I particularly love that the palette features a lovely big mirror which is just the right size to actually be able to utilise (unlike most palette mirrors I own).
LUSH Butterbear Bath Bomb
Whenever the cold Winter weather hits, I love treating myself to a bath and pamper evening. I’ve loved using Butterbear recently because its just so simple and faff free! Theres no dramatically coloured water or glitter floating around you, but this bath bomb contains cocoa butter so not only does it smell delicious, but it also leaves your skin feeling super soft (which is always handy at this time of year).
Sage and Onion Stuffing is literally my favourite part of a Christmas dinner. I’m obsessed with the stuff and M&S or Waitrose definitely do it best.
Terry’s Chocolate Orange
The original Terry’s Chocolate Orange are basically a Christmas tradition in our house. Its not Christmas without (at least) one.
Winter Wonderland & London Trip
You can read about this in more depth here, but I had the best and most festive day, and loved wandering around looking at all of the beautiful Christmas decorations decking the streets of London- Covent Garden had to be the most beautiful. As you can see looking at the sky, we chose the most perfect day to go, of course it was cold, but it was also sunny and fresh!
I hope you had the best Christmas and I wish you the happiest year in 2018!
