January Best Bits & Catch Up

*This Post Contains Gifted Items & Affiliate Links

This is a little late... 

I cannot believe January is over already - I feel like it was swept away in a study stress mess with me on a diet and hating life due to my lack of chocolate and ice cream. But, it's over now. The exam stress is DONE, so I can finally sit on my couch with a cuppa and write out a blog post. So here is everything I have been loving this month...  


I am still in love with this scent - it is SO beautiful. So warm and sexy, perfect for this time of the year. I've been reaching for it almost daily this month - helping boost the studying mood? Who knows! I love Shay & Blue, definitely becoming one of my absolute favourite brands. 

This has been in my shower for quite some time now - and I am so shocked by how long it seems to be lasting. I'm terrible and wash my face in the shower *hides face* (Only in the morning). But I love this for it, the smell is incredible - and a little does really seem to go a long way! 

3. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask £41.00 (Review to come soon)
There are definite pros and cons to this - but so far so good. It smells incredible, and I have been loving the way it has made my skin feel. I understand the hype - I just wish it wasn't so gloopy! 



4. Dermalogica Biolumin-C Eye Serum* £63.00 (Review to come soon)
Vitamin C has been a hero to brighten up my under eye exam stress. This has been applied nightly since it arrived and I have been loving using it. 

I cannot believe I forgot quite how much I loved this! It is so incredible, really lifts and lengthens my lashes without them looking super clumpy. Doesn't flake and crumble over the day - what's not to love? 

6. MAC Mehr £17.50
Another one I had forgotten how much I loved. It's one of those lipsticks where you apply it and instantly fall in love. Definitely reaching for this one more now! 

7. Bobbi Brown Jeweled Rose Eye Palette £32.00 (Review to come soon)
I feel like this was SUCH a steal for the price and brand. The colours are stunning - and I have been using it every chance I have had to apply makeup. This little palette is perfection in both packaging and shades. It is limited edition - so grab it while you can! 


8. Outlander 
Jamie Fraser is the ONE. If you haven't seen it yet you really do need to - it is incredible! Next season comes out this month and I am SO excited about it! I've even got my Mum watching it! (Available on Amazon Prime)

9. Sex Education 
I am SO happy it came back for another season - I so love Eric! I need more though, ASAP. Especially with that ending. (Available on Netflix)

10. My Physiology and Anatomy Exam being OVER
As much as I loved listening to my lecturers on repeat discussing Cardiac Complications, Diabetes, Thyroid Disorders, Bleeding Disorders, Obstetric Emergencies... etc. I'm SO glad it's done and out the way. It felt like my brain had turned into mashed potato and I was unable to retain basic information anymore. It's done, and onwards to placement. Just let me nap a little first yeah?

PopBeautyUK Permanent Pout Liquid Lipstick Review + Swatches*

A new brand to try...

It's been such a long time since I did a swatches post - or tried a new brand - so why not tick both boxes with these new lippies from PopBeautyUK? They have a whopping 6 new shades to add to their three existing fan favourites. A shade for everyone.  


Personally, I love Butter Babe, Plump Peach, Red Velvet and Razzle Rose. 

Butter babe is the perfect warm nude shade. I love a more subtle lip with a bold eye - and this is such a classic shade for this. 

Plump Peach is my ideal summertime peachy nude. This is the perfect peach for those warmer days where you aren't quite willing to go full hog on a bold peach/coral lip. 

Red velvet is the go-to shade for a bold lip to me. A deep, rich red seems to suit my pale skin beautifully. 

Finally, Razzle Rose is my favourite. I LOVE a dusky pinky nude shade which just seems to be the one for me. I will always go towards a shade like this for any occasion. Love it! 


There are fifteen shades to choose from in the range, and worth picking up if you fancy trying out a new formula or brand. There really is a shade for everyone here!


Which shade would you try first?

2019 Beauty Advent Calendar: My Final Thoughts


Another Year Over...

So, after last year's three advent calendars I had made the decision to only make my own this year. You can view that decision in the final thoughts from last January here.  So I did what last year Erin told me to do: I made another advent calendar.
