As January passes

 January Favourites LUSH ROSE JAM SHOWER GEL | JO MALONE LIME BASIL AND MANDARIN HAND CREAM | REVLON BLACK CHERRY LIPSTICK | BETTY MAGAZINE | YANKEE SNOWFLAKE COOKIE | LONDON GRAMMAR ALBUM

I cannot believe how January has passed already, it's crazy. I have so many things to achieve this year and time -so it seems- is not on my side. I've quit my job and I am ready to start new endeavours, but the plan is very slow moving. I am hunting for work in London like there is no tomorrow but everything seems a little quiet, there is not much about that I am qualified for unfortunately, however I will persevere. I hope February brings some pleasant surprises. 

These are a few of the things I have been loving recently, and throughout January. The Rose Jam shower gel from Lush was a  post Christmas sale purchase and it's been a delight. I love all my shower and bath bits and am very rarely disappointed with Lush's contributions to my stash. The Jo Malone hand cream was a Christmas present from my Mama and it smells divine  I have the cologne to match this too and it's one of those scents which really dominates as we embark into Spring. Lipstick wise, I own a lot, however this Revlon one in Black Cherry has been the one I have reached for most; it's a gorgeous deep berry shade which -like most- are my favourites for this time of year - it's long lasting and -in my opinion- just as good as my Mac alternatives - It has actually stopped me buying Rebel... for now. I get bored with lipsticks easily and am always switching them up for a liptastic revamp. Magazine wise, my latest read has been a gooden, as it always is really. I adore Betty Mag and only dream of working for them one day, which reminds me how I must crack on with pitching some feature ideas to them! I think I have listened to London Grammar's album way over one hundred times since I got it. Their music sums up my music taste perfectly and their songs are ones I will never get bored of; I literally listen to them every morning and every night without fail, as well as having a good ol' sing song in the bath - it's rare for me to find an album where I like every song but with them I just do. I really want to see them when they are on tour, but I need to act fast and find someone to come with me. Currently burning in my room: Yankee's Snowflake Cookie. It may be a Christmas scent but the sugary sweet aromas conjure up nothing but sheer bliss. 

What have you been lovin' recently?
