I want to start off by saying sorry for being so inconsistent with favourites posts! It’s just some months, I find hardly any new favourites so I don’t have enough to write about. This month however, I’ve got a few gems to write about and I’m excited to share these with you!
The first favourite is Lush’s dark angels, I picked this up during my post-Christmas sales haul. It’s helped cleared my skin so much and it’s become a staple in my skincare routine. I use it every night with my Foreo Luna mini 2. It really helps clean my skin and remove all the dirt from the day. The smell is very particular and for some, it may take a little getting used to but I don’t mind it all too much. I think it’s particularly good for acne-prone or oily skin as it has activated charcoal which is known to be very good for these skin concerns. Since using it, I have noticed that my skin has been less oily and as mentioned before, my skin has been clearing up.
As well as the lush cleanser, I’m also loving the Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay mask, I do have a full review on my blog that goes into more details about everything. Obviously I did love this, hence why it’s in this post. It really is a miracle in a tube but it does take a while to see results. To me, it’s the perfect mask, it smells like roses and my skin feels baby soft and smooth. I don’t want to ruin the full review so all I’ll say is that it’s made it onto my favourites because it works!
Now, I’ve never had a photography section in my blog posts before and it’s very exciting. You may have seen a photo of these on my Instagram, and I was very excited about them. Since that post, I have been using them frequently and I’ve fallen in love!
So I’ll start by talking about the instax mini 9 camera. I got mine from Skinnydip and it’s currently on sale! As well as it being on sale, you also get 10 free papers included. It’s run on batteries which I personally like as it’s easy and doesn’t need charging. The reason I purchased it was because I loved the look of Polaroid photos. Now I’ve taken these photos, I don’t want to stop! These are just the perfect camera to capture cute memories.
Next, is the instax mini link printer. These go out of stock so quickly so it’s you’ve ever considered buying one, then I recommend going for it! I have the dusty pink one which is just typical for me but they do have other colours available. This does have a charger but I was expecting this. I bought this simply so I don’t have to carry my camera everywhere. Sometimes I don’t have space in my bag for it but I always have my phone with me. What’s amazing about this printer is that it doesn’t require ink! This is so good as I was worried it would cost me a lot if I had to buy ink. Luckily, this printer doesn’t need it!
I do only have one fashion favourite this month. It’s this adorable teddy bag-pack from Hollister. It’s so soft and it just makes any outfit that little cuter. I usually take it to lectures with me but no if I’m carrying my laptop. It is big enough but my Tommy bag has a laptop pocket just for it. The reason I use this one is because it’s lightweight and fits everything I need into it. You may know from past blog posts that I love everything teddy material and this is my dream bag!
The final favourite of this post is my new fluffy hot water bottle. My boyfriend bought me this for Valentine’s Day and I’m in love. This is the softest thing ever and obviously, it’s going to provide very helpful; especially at that time of the month. I tried it out the other day just because I was cold. It says on the packaging to not use boiling water so I used the hot tap in my bedroom. Due to that, I wasn’t expecting much. How wrong I was! It was so so warm and the heat lasted for ages, I was mind blown. This may be old news to many people but I’d never had a hot water bottle before so I was amazed!
That is all for my favourites this month! What have you been loving?
