January 2018 Favourites

Sweet heaven above, thank my giddy Aunt January is over. The month that felt like two, the month of fifty shades of grey skies, enough rain to grow webbed feet and the wind.. oh the wind.
Anyway people, we made it. We can look forward to lighter mornings and evenings, spring bulbs and day light!

Favourite things from the last 84 days of January have been:

Nude by Nature Natural Glow Loose Bronzer
I did feature this loose powder bronzer in one of my beauty advent posts and I haven't put it down since. It's almost replaced my Benefit Hoola. This powder is the perfect shade which I have been using as a contour and in these pasty faced times, it has added the definition shadow I need to not only bring some warmth to my face but a hint of cheekbone. £18.00 for 10g pot from Debenhams.

Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Toast
I can't remember where I heard what a versatile perfect shade Toast was from Bobbi Brown, so when I popped in to a store in the new Oxford Westgate Shopping Mall, I threw caution to the wind and blew £19.00 on this one, single, lone, solitary eye shadow. However, it is a great colour that I have been wearing often as either a single sweep wash of colour just to cover veiny eye lids and awaken my eyes or layered up for a more intense mid brown.

John Frieda Original 6 Effects Serum
I raved about my first discovery of the John Frieda Frizz Ease shampoo and conditioner in a recent favourites and how they had really transformed my hair to be practically frizz free and certainly 100 times less static. This serum, which you add to washed wet hair, goes further to ease the frizz, heat protect, smooth and hydrates. And it really does all of these things. My hair feel silky smooth and I've only used it a handful of times. £6.99 from Boots (or on a 3 for 2).

Phil Smith CocoLicious Hairspray
I picked this up in Sainsbury's because it was on offer for a few pounds (can't remember the exact amount). I only use a squirt of hairspray to control flyaway hairs so I've never spent much on it. I lucked out with this one though as it smells so fresh and coconut-y, it does give a firm hold and no stickiness or crusty residue. I'd be happy to pay twice the amount I did for this.

Monica Vinader Signature Ring
As a January cheer up treat to myself I ordered this simple 18ct gold ring from Monica Vinader. Here are better pictures from their website. 

I love the design of this ring and it's so comfortable to wear. There's not one piece of Monica Vinader jewellery that I wouldn't love to own, so if you've not heard of them before, do take a look at their website. My ring arrived quickly and beautifully packaged.  I also ordered another ring and sent that back and got a refund really quickly.
