It’s the end of January and I’ll be honest I’m glad to see the back of it. This month has been probably one of the toughest in my life in terms of personal stuff so here’s hoping that February is better! In terms of beauty and lifestyle it’s been a good month for trying new things, I’ve discovered some great beauty products plus a lot of new music, here’s what I’ve been enjoying.
Starting with beauty, I’ve had a bit of a Bourjois love affair this month. First up is the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer it’s quite different from my usual heavy coverage and is more more lightweight and radiance enhancing but I do like it – I won’t say too much now though as I’m reviewing it next week! I’ve also enjoyed the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nudist it’s a great matte finish and the cool toned pink is perfect for daywear!
I also had a good month for haircare and skincare, I tried the Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourisher Hair Mask and I really enjoyed using that. Speaking of masks, I tried my first sheet mask in the form of the Garnier Moisture Bomb Mask though it is a shame it contains alcohol, fragrance and parabens, it feels lovely and soothing on the skin and I did notice an immediate plumping effect.
Also on my radar is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum I’ve been using this for a while but only recently got around to reviewing it and now I’ve nearly used it up! This is lovely and lightweight and does an excellent job of hydrating the skin and locking in moisture. Another product I tried this month was the Impulse Rock & Love Bodyspray which smells amazing so I definitely need to buy another one stat!
Onto lifestyle and the first thing I’m going to talk is music. I’ve rediscovered Pendulum this month and have pretty much been listening to their songs on repeat especially Crush and The Island pt 1. I also listened to more of If These Trees Could Talk, Iron Glacier was the first song I heard but my favourite is The Giving Tree which is just lovely – I’ve not heard of post rock before but it’s a genre I think I’ll get on board with. I also listened to much more of Paramore’s After Laughter album, I really like their new song my favourites are probbaly Pool, Tell Me How, Rose Coloured Boy, Hard Times and Told You So but there’s not a single song I dislike on there.
A couple more favourites include Cosmopolitan Magazine, I’m still mourning the loss of Glamour since their print version is now abolished and it’s all online but good old Cosmo has retained its printed copies. Black Mirror also returned to our screens this month so I’ve been steadily working my way through the latest season on Netflix, I’ve not yet finished it but I’d definitely say it’s the best season so far and I’m really enjoying it. Now to twiddle my thumbs and wait for the return of A Series of Unfortunate Events and Game of Thrones!
That’s it this month for me, hope you all had a not-so-terrible January and regardless I hope your February is awesome. Let me know in the comments what you’ve been enjoying and if you enjoyed this post please hit like.
