January Favourites

Hello everyone! How are you all? It is finally February and I am so happy, January as usual was a very long month. Anyways there were 6 main favourites I used constantly throughout January and that is what this post is going to be about!

The first thing was something I got in my advent calender and it is a mini soap and glory lip gloss. It’s really nice in how it stays on your lips for a long time and is really shiny and has a bit of glitter in it. It also makes my lips fell really full and soft.

This eye cream from No7 was also something I got in my advent calender and I don’t use it everyday but when I’m especially tired or my eyes are a bit sore. It really hydrated the eye area and makes the bags really soft and less noticeable, I would definitely recommend this!

The next thing is a necklace that I got as a Christmas present. It is a silver necklace with a leaf and flower pattern with mini diamonds on it, it’s from Buckingham jewellery and I reckon I’ve worn it everyday and love it! I have had so many compliments when I wear it , which is always a nice thing!

This is probably the thing I have enjoyed most this month and it was also a Christmas present and it is a FitBit charge 3. It is brilliant, some of things it tells you or does is: the time (obviously haha), how many steps you have done, how many flights of stairs you have climbed, heart rate, the date, how many hours you’ve been active, it tracks your exercise from playing a sport to just a walk, how many calories you’ve burnt and not just from waling and sport but just the whole day as it can estimate from your age, gender and weight and height. These are the main things I use but it does a lot more and you can connect it to your phone and tracks a lot more, on the app I mainly use the sleep tracker and you can do challenges and races with your friends which is really fun!

I have also been loving scrunchies, I know these two are quite old and I do really need to get some more nicer ones. But I really like scrunchies because the add a lot to a simple hairstyle and they don’t pull on your hair.

The last of my favourites is 1 Second a Day which is an app which you record one second a day and it makes a collage and you can see your month, week, year, or years. it is a really nice thing and I love watching it back. It’s free so I would definitely recommend downloading it!


Well that was my January Favourites, I hope you enjoyed it and I wish you a happy February! Thank you so much for reading!

New Year – How to get over your post Christmas Blues


So, you’ve had an amazing Christmas and New Years day and Eve spent with your loved ones but now you are going back to work or school and you’re feeling kind of down. This is most definitely me, is it you?

I hope you had a really wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year but now I am here to write about a few tips I have to get you to a good start this 2019.

1. Think about all the good things to come in 2019

Instead of dwelling on how sad you are that Christmas is over, why don’t you think about all the good things there are to come this year. This can be things such as trips you have planned in 2019, I have planned a trip to Bath in the Spring and I am now really looking forward to it,  also remember how much fun last Summer was with all the sun – we have that to come again. If you don’t have anything particularly exciting planned for 2019 then think about all the people you can meet and all the time you can spend with your loved ones. And on the plus side, next Christmas isn’t really too far off, but don’t think about that too much!

2. Treat Yourself 

Another thing I would recommend is either buying something you have been wanting or needing for a while, it could be a little as a Lush bath bomb or a hair product you love and as big as a holiday you want to go on or a new phone. Or if you don’t have anything you’ve have been thinking about for a while then put aside an amount of money – it doesn’t have to be huge, you could have £5 to whatever you feel you can spend and just either go out and have a little shopping spree and buy yourself a nice dress, or a pair of shoes or some makeup or go out and have a meal. Just do something nice for yourself – no matter how little or big it is.

3. Be Generous

My last tip may seem a little simple but at this time of year lots of people try to make resolutions to give up drinking, lose weight, cut down on sugar, start a new hobby etc. But something else (or extra) to do is just to be kind and generous. Just be more conscious of everyone around you. I know you may be feeling glum but there is a definite chance that there is someone out there who is having a worse start to 2019 then you are. I am not saying you need to donate £100 to charity, just a little or even just be aware of these people in need – don’t be ignorant. I know this is not the way the world is but wouldn’t you love to live in a world where a complete stranger could come up to you and say ” I love that outfit, where did you get it from?” or ” I love your makeup” or something as simple as ” Have a great day.’ I’m not saying you need to be creepy and do this to everyone you see or that this never happens. But if you would like someone to say it to you then if the situation seems right then just say something nice, I can almost guarantee that both the person and you will feel better and happier.

Well I hope you find some of these tips helpful and I wish you all a very happy new year! Have a good one!
