Currently Loving...

It's almost the end of January, well that went rather quickly didn't it?! 

Not that I'm complaining though, January is my least favourite month.  It's normally this time that I'm tiring of the cold weather and hankering for Spring to arrive so I can get out of jumpers and scarves and start wearing pretty 'Spring' colours (who am I kidding - more 'lightweight' blacks and greys in my case!)

Anyway, let's get back to the point of this post. 

A few random favourites for you, or rather 'things that every time I pick up I get enjoyment from and consequently I've been using a lot this month' - but that was a far too long title for this post! 

Some, you will be familiar with because they've been featured in previous posts.  I included them anyway, because quite frankly they're worth another mention!

Converse Dainty in 'Dolphin Grey' 

I had been on the fence about getting some of these for a long time, but then Laura (Laura etc) mentioned she'd got a new pair of Converse in the sale on Asos and it spurred me to go online and have a look.  I spotted these ones on sale and they were promptly purchased in a matter of seconds. I love them! I'm picturing them with the aforementioned grey 'Spring'outfits! haha.  These are sadly sold out on Asos now but I've googled them and you can get them on quite a few other websites. 

Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser

Well you could age a year just saying that couldn't you?! This is a fantastic cleanser that I bought before I went to Dubai because I don't like taking a bottle of oil cleanser with me on holiday in fear that it will leak all over everything. I have actually noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin over the 4 weeks I've been using it religiously to take my make up off.  

Celine Sunglasses

I'm gravitating to my Celine's all the time now over other sunglasses in my collection.  I feel a Spring sunglasses purchase coming on! :) 

Charbonnel et Walker Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles

My absolute favourite.  Anyone wanting to buy me a small present...this is it! I'm actually not a huge chocolate fan normally but these are my absolute weakness! 

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in 'Lolita'

See last blogpost - obsession still continues, and can you believe after less than a month of owning this I've almost finished it!!!

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Aka 'Sleep in a bottle'  I'm using this every other night at the moment because the weather is so dry and I've been so ill, it's miraculous stuff! If you buy one thing this month / next month make it this!! 

Kate Spade Planner

I got so excited about having a proper planner this year I actually bought stickers to go in it and I'm not ashamed to admit it! ha!  On a serious note though, I made a decision around November time last year that I was going to get something decent for 2016 to plan things.  Two reasons really, one to be a bit more organised and two so that I could actually make more plans to do exciting things! It's working :) I take this planner everywhere I go now. 

Ne'emah 'Laya' Perfume 

After meeting Laura for a coffee in Dubai earlier this month the topic of perfume came up and she mentioned a fragrance that you can't actually get in the UK (sorry!!). It had been recommended on one of Tijan Serena's recent YouTube blogs and had been described as 'sexual'!! Intrigued... I had to try it! So before parting company we made a swift trip to Sephora. After smelling this just once I fell in love instantly and purchased immediately! It's an oud based perfume with vanilla and its gorgeous.  I'm wearing it every day at the moment!

Barry M Gelly Nail Polish in 'Almond'

I've been saving all my grey nail hues for January but have been stuck in a rut with this one! It's such a gorgeous grey / lilac colour and for such an inexpensive nail varnish it performs exceptionally well! 

Niod Photography Fluid

You've seen this before and be prepared to see it again (and again!) because it's definitely my 2016 obsession and as necessary as water to me at the moment! Stacey bought be this and I'm eternally grateful to her for introducing it to me!! :)

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara

Have I mentioned I like this stuff?! haha!  See my full review here 

So that's what I'm loving at the moment...tell me, what are you obsessing over currently? anything you're using day in day out?!
