Monthly Favourites #1

Hello Little Ones,

So this is my first ever Monthly Favourites post!
I always love reading these kind of posts as it gives me ideas of things to buy or try that I usually wouldn't think of.

So lets get started!

Beauty Favourites

Benefit - Porefessional 
I'm so late jumping on the bandwagon on this product, but oh my lord I'm loving the way it primes my face.
It just makes it feel super smooth and looks flawless.
I also love that its quite a handy size so you can pop it in your handbag for a top up during the day if your face is starting to get a little oily.

Soap & Glory - Peaches & Clean
This has now become my holy grail in the evenings for taking my make up off!
It's a 3 in 1 wash off cleanser which just smells divine as well as it doing the job.
I've not really ventured that much into Soap & Glory's face skincare but after getting this in the Yule Monty set it's definitely made me want to try more of their range.
I would highly recommend this if you're wanting to get a skincare routine that isn't too pricey!

Soap & Glory - The Daily Soothe
After watching one of Tanya Burr's vlogmas videos, I stumbled across this bath float and I knew I had to have it.
I love the Sugar Crush body wash range so I knew I couldn't be disappointed by this.
It's perfect after a long hard day at work as it has a lavender scent which really helps calm and relax you, before putting on your best PJs and snuggling up in bed.
The amount of bubbles you get for just one handful also is amazing, you get good value out of the pot for this little bath float.

Urban Decay - Naked 3
This little gem has opened up my eyes to a whole new world of eyeshadows!
I'm using this palette every single day and loving playing around mixing up the shades.
I know a lot of you beauty bloggers have already got your mitts on this palette and are loving it, but if you're thinking of buying your first palette and wanting neutral shades I would highly recommend buying one of Urban Decay's Naked palettes. They are pricey but will last you a life time!

Jo Malone - Blackberry & Bay Cologne
Eeekkk, my first ever Jo Malone cologne!
Jo Malone have the best scents ever and the fact that you can layer them with each other just makes them even more special!
My mum bought me this little 30ml bottle for Christmas and I've been treasuring it so much.
I'm only spritzing myself with it on special occasions so it doesn't run out to quickly.
This scent is fruity with a woody undertone and it's perfect for winter time.
I can't wait to expand my Jo Malone collection and get another scent as well as a candle.
Ooohh imagine your whole bedroom filled with this scent, heaven!

General Daily Favourites

Dexter - Available on Netflix
After finishing watching Gossip Girl, I was in desperate need of a new box set to watch to help me get
through how depressing January is without no money.
A work colleague had been saying for months that I should watch Dexter, especially as I love Homeland.
So after umming and ahhing for ages about what to fill the Gossip Girl gap with I gave Dexter a go.
Now I'm not big on blood or detective shows, but I finished the first season in about a week and have just started season 2. It's safe to say I'm hooked.

Snack a Jacks - Chocolate Chip flavour
So like everyone in January I've been trying to eat more healthy, in order to loose my 2 stone target before I go on holiday in June. 
However I can't kick the chocolate craving so the Chocolate flavour snack a jacks have become a firm favourite. I take a whole packet to work on a Monday and by the end of the week there's none left!
They are so good at helping with the chocolate craving I usually get at around 3pm and I'm still sticking to eating healthy as there only 62 calories per rice cake.

Saturday Morning Jog
So if you've read my 2014 resolutions post, if not click here!
You will be aware that I'm trying to get back into jogging again at least once a week and so far I've been really good! The last three weeks I've gone on a 2 mile jog every Saturday morning, even yesterday morning with a hangover! Now that is dedication!
I've really been enjoying it and find that it's a great way to start the weekend, you can totally clear you head and focus on just yourself.
I'm hoping once the evenings start to get lighter I'll be able to go on a jog in the evenings and up it to around 3 times a week.
It's been a great way to help me get healthy also.

Rather Be Feat Jess Glynne by Clean Bandit
This song is gearing me up for summer so much as well as it taking me back to primary school days due to its 90s feel.
When I'm having a bad day at work or out on my Saturday morning jog, I put this on and I'm instantly in a better mood. I love songs that do this and totally understand why it's doing so well in the charts.
If you haven't heard this song or you have and love it as much as me then click here, to have a listen as well as watch the video.
