January Favourites

January can be slightly grey in moods and slightly chilly in temperature. I have made more efforts to cheer my mood up by taking care of myself. My five favourite things (and most definitely my essentials) in January are...
1.  NEW Original Source moisturising shower gel- Watermelon & Jojoba oil
Oh my goodness this stuff is amazing. Not only is it a pretty coral colour it smells absolutely divine! Bonus- It's moisturising too.

2.  Jo Malone cologne- Wild Bluebell
I was so thankful to receive some more of this for Christmas as I ran out just a little before. It is my most favourite scent in the whole world... that and freshly cut grass of course, oh and Turkish Delight.

3.  Crabtree & Evelyn ultra-moisturising hand therapy- Pomegranate, argan & grapeseed
My dear Sebastian put FOUR different tubes of hand cream in my stocking for Christmas. This is one of them and the smell is just so pretty. Plus the packaging is just b-e-a-utiful.

4.  Helen E nail power- Jet Black
I am loving wearing black nail polish at the moment. Actually... I'm just loving wearing black everything at the moment. It goes with everything. This polish is great- it's so nice to apply and easy to remove. A classic.

5.  Topshop lipstick- Pillow Talk
So I'm not one to wear lipstick on a day-to-day basis. Until now. This creamy lipstick is so nice and fussy-free (for a first timer) and the colour is a peachy perfection. I am pretty much in love. (Thank you again Sebastian for this Stocking gift!).


  1. I love a fruity shower gel - it's a nice way to start the day I think - and if I did a favourites post, hand cream would be on mine for sure! So cold, so very dry! x

  2. That lipstick is just so pretty, loving the colour x


  3. Loved this post! I really want to try Jo Malone! Hope you're having a great week!


  4. I love Original source too. Their shower gels are amazing, they smell so nice.

  8. All of your favorites sound amazing! I don't wear makeup but I also tend to buy discount type lotions and all those things as well haha. I'm inspired to branch out and get some fancier beauty/pamper products that aren't makeup!


  9. I have that watermelon shower gel too and I literally can't believe how delicious it smells!! X
