What I've Been Loving In January

29.1.18


My obsessions of the New Year

Woah the first month of 2018 went by SO FAST. But luckily, I've had enough time to catch my breath and gather together some faves of the month. It's a lovely little mix of beauty, life and the best musicals ever (seriously) and I can't wait to talk about them with you...

I also wrote a post on what made my Jan which you can read here!!

001: anastasia beverly hills modern renaissance palette: An impulse purchase that I made a few months ago on Beauty Bay, and I've not regretted it since!! I left it to one side for a bit as I was still obsessed with the Makeup Revolution Soph palette, but picking up again and rediscovering how pigmented all the colours are made my month! I've created so many looks, the shades blend sooo easily and the brush provided is pretty decent too.

002: bleach london liquid lipstick in washed up mermaid: I LOVE out there shades, especially when it comes to lips. (Have you seen my profile pic here??) And when I saw this turquoise blue liquid lip that's also a matte, I was aaaall over it. I did a full review here if you want to know more, but let me tell you, it's added another dimension to my makeup looks haha.

003: les miserables: I have to admit, I've only seen the movie adaption of the classic, but it was about time I read the novel that led to the musical right? As I'm typing this now, I'm on page 1033 of 1194 pages, and I think that's pretty good considering I started it on the 9th Jan... It's a real love affair and commitment to this book, there's A LOT more detail (obviously) than the musical reveals and it's made me love the characters even more. Julie Rose, the translator, has done an incredible job and I've whizzed through this - while being pretty inactive online sorry not sorry - and I'm going to feel sad when I finish it...

004: skinnydip london sloth iphone case: This was the first thing I bought with my xmas money, and it's just the cutest thing EVER. I love sloths as well as pugs, and it was about time the brand brought out something sloth related. A plus is the fact that it's also pink. Because if you know me, I'm a sucker for pink. Also, it's in a new bendy plastic case which makes it so much easier for removing and giving it a clean!

005: the greatest showman soundtrack: Apart from my love for Les Mis, a new addition is The Greatest Showman. Like everyone on this planet, I went to the cinema and was blown away by it - and left pretty choked up and wanting to run back and see it again. To cure my ache, I bought the soundtrack and it's on a whole other level just listening to the music. Hugh Jackman is an AMAZING singer and I've fallen in love with all the characters. If you want to listen to a few songs before seeing it for yourself then Never Enough and This Is Me are perfect ones to start with. Though going in blind is probably the best option. Can it be on DVD already??

What have you guys loved this month??
