December Favourites

Monday, 5 January 2015

The end of December hit me in the face like a big pizza pie but I came prepared for a change. I must’ve been struck by lightning or it’s a full moon as I have never been so organised for a month in my life. Guaranteed this won’t last.

Why do I always start my monthly favourite posts in such an odd way? Let’s just get to the items!

1. Lush Celebrate

Despite the fact it makes me scratch my legs to death I absolutely love this cream. I now use it strictly on my upper body only and it works a treat. I’m gutted about it being limited edition especially since I was a total idiot and only bought one tub. I really need to start rationing it otherwise the tub will be finished by the end of this month. Boo limited edition products!

2. MAC Impassioned Lipstick

I totally forgot all about this lipstick until I decided I needed to look presentable while buying shortbread. I found it hiding in between all of my other lipsticks and immediately fell back in love with it. It’s such a gorgeous colour that works brilliantly for both day and night.

I did make the discovery that it transfers something chronic when it makes contact with another human though. My other half looked absolutely fabulous while his face was covered in Impassioned so I guess it’s a shade that works for everyone.

3. Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel

Another limited edition product from Lush! When I first bought this I really didn’t understand the hype and to be honest, I still don’t get it; it’s a shower gel that smells like bubblegum after all. Despite the fact I don’t understand why everyone is in love with this shower gel I do still like it. It smells delightful, it’s beyond soapy and bubbly and it’s pink. What more could a girl want?

4. Urban Decay Naked and Buck

Naked and Buck were my favourite combination when I first got the Urban Decay Naked palette but I left them behind when I got my hands on the Naked 3 palette. I must’ve abandoned these eyeshadows for a good 4 months but I discovered them again out of sheer laziness. They’re now my go to eyeshadows for a basic “I really can’t be bothered but if I don’t put make up on I’ll scare children” look.

It's safe to say this is looking a little worse for wear.

5. The Santa Clause 1 and 2

It can’t be a December Favourites post without something Christmassy. I really don’t like Christmas films (Elf makes me want to punch a tree) but there’s something about The Santa Clause that makes me feel all festive and gunk. It’s a fairly basic yet heart-warming story and Tim Allen makes a very convincing Santa. I’ve watched it every Christmas since I was a kid but at least now I don’t have a rather disturbing crush on the guy who plays Bernard.

So there you have my December Favourites. I was going to do a total 2014 Favourites but let’s be honest, that would just be my monthly favourites throughout the year in one big post. Keeping it short and sweet albeit slightly rambling is much more fun. Right?
