A few of my favourite things..

Hello there! I am writing this blog post drinking a hot chocolate and watching Harry Potter with all the candles lit in my living room and it really does feel like winter. It is getting really cold here in the UK now so the winter wardrobe is out. Jumpers, big cardigans, boots and scarves ๐Ÿ˜€ wahoooo!

I am going to share a few of my favourite things with you today. I will probably do a monthly favourites post next month but for now I just wanted to share things that I am loving right now and things that I am still loving years on down the line :). So lets get started…


As you can see there are quite a few things but I use these everyday and I just love them all! I tried to include a mixture of things so we have hair, beauty and a few random bits.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Shampoo

I have had this shampoo for a few months now and I really like it. I dip dyed (ombre) my hair a few months ago and I wanted a product that would take care of my hair as well as keep the dye in for as long as possible so I was just browsing the different products and came across this. It was on deal so that also drew my attention to it, because you cant beat a good deal! This just makes my hair feel so soft and look a lot brighter. I have the conditioner as well which I just use on the ombre bits but unfortunately I have left it at my mums house so I couldn’t include it but they are both brilliant products and I would recommend them!

V05 Heat Protect Styling Spray

I have been using this product for quite a while now. I spray a good amount all over my hair before I dry it because you have to look after your hair before throwing all that heat on it! This product just does what it says on the bottle protects hair from heat. I feel like its working because my hair doesn’t feel dry or damaged after drying like it did before this product. The bottle also has a lock button on it so when you are travelling it wont accidentally get sprayed all over your clothes which is great!

Simple Kind to Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On

I use this every morning before I put any makeup on. I love how it feels under your eyes its so cold and refreshing because the roll on is a little metal ball. When you are shattered on a morning this is just what you need to wake you up. It reduces puffiness and makes you feel awake and refreshed.

Mitchum Advanced Anti-Perspirant & Deodorantย 

This one is quite a random one but I had to include it because it actually works. I have tried a few different deodorants and haven’tย like any of them as much as this one. It smells nice too which is a bonus. It says it ‘keeps you feeling dry and comfortable for 48 hours’ย and I agree.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs Perfume

This is my favourite perfume ever! I first came across this in duty free but I was in a rush so I didn’t have time to buy it but my lovely boyfriend got it for me last christmas and I was so pleased because it was one of the things I had asked for which is unusual for me because I never know what I want for Christmas and birthdays. It just smells so fresh and beautiful. Its not too over powering either which is what I love about it. I definitely recommend this perfume to anyone.. the bottle is also amazing too so it looks ace on your dressing table!

MAC Superwatt Electric Cool Eyeshadow

This is a new addition to my makeup collection. I was just browsing a few weeks ago and came across these. I loved the colours straight away. It was a toss up between this one and Pure Flash which is a champagne colour but I have quite a lot of lighter eyeshadows so I went with this one and I am so pleased! It looks amazing and doesn’t really crease, even after a stressful day at work!

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation – NC15

I LOVE this foundation. I have only just started using this product since I moved to Manchester because there isn’t a MAC shop or Selfridges back where I used to live so I have just sort of discovered them and I couldn’t be happier! I never used liquid foundations before because I didn’t like how they looked on my skin but I have now been converted! This just looks so smooth and amazing, everyone needs to try this! ๐Ÿ™‚

NARS Laguna Bronzer

I only did a post on this a few days ago so I wont ramble on too much but I love this bronzer a lot. I only got it a few days ago but its just amazing and everyone need to have this on their christmas list this year if you don’t already have it! LOVE it :).

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set

This is my first set of good quality makeup brushes and I am so impressed. I got this set in July and I have used them everyday since. You get 3 eye brushes, 3 foundation/concealer brushes, 1 blush brush and one powder/bronzer brush. They feel so soft and amazing on your skin and they make applying your makeup so much easier. This set is another one which needs to be on your Christmas list or even an early christmas present to yourself, everyone deserves a treat sometimes ;).

The Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond

I am going to finish this post off with a book favourite. I love reading I just wish I had more time to sit down and read but I do whenever I get the chance. I bought this book a couple of weeks ago. I had finished a series of books I was reading and thought I would just browse the Amazon top 10 and this one was second and only 59 pence I think which is a bargain. As soon as I read the blurb I knew I had to read it and I am now hooked! I literally want to read it all the time! If anyone is stuck on what to read next then buy this because I love it and I haven’t even finished it yet! If anyone has read this book let me know what you thought but don’t tell me what happens ๐Ÿ™‚

So thats it for my favourite things I hope you enjoyed this slightly longer post and I hope I didn’t ramble too much. I probably did but I get carried away sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for reading!

See you soon.

  1. I really want to try that Simple Eye Roll-On. I have their brightening cream and it does feel amazing, but I would love to give this a go for moments when I just can’t bring myself to get ready for work!


    • Yeah it’s perfect for before work. I am not a morning person and this makes me feel more awake and refreshed! Oo I haven’t tried the brightening cream, I might have to try that ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. With bleach blonde hair I always struggle to find a great drugstore shampoo & conditioner but I find John Frieda is a life saver – loving this post! Amy X
