We’re finally at the end of January! I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for some warmer weather, not that there is a great deal in the UK! Despite January feeling as though it’s been going on for over a year, it has had its perks, and this post is all about the little things that have made January that bit better.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to make a ‘loves’ list at the end of every month, to highlight all the good that has happened, however big or small, as it will be nice to look back on.
So here are all of the things I have loved this January..
- Urban Decay’s Troublemaker Mascara
Probably the most wanted mascara of 2017 right? I have been using it throughout January and I have to say, I’m impressed! I don’t usually go for the thinner brushes, but I quite like how this one grabs the lashes and makes them look fuller.
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with mascara, purely because I’d love to make it through half a shift at work without looking like a panda. I haven’t had this issue with Troublemaker, and I’m glad because it’s become one of my favourite products.
As if you needed any more reason to try it, look at that packing, all prismatic and metallic, so dreamy.
- Turtles All The Way Down
You have probably seen this book everywhere, and if not, where have you been? This latest instalment by John Green made its way into my book pile a couple of weeks ago, and I couldn’t put it down! If you missed my review of TATWD you can read it here:
Much like Green’s other books it has love, heartbreak, humour, loss, and friendship, but the main theme of TATWD is mental illness. It is an extremely interesting read, particularly if you want to learn about what it is like to live with a mental illness.
It’ll break your heart, put it back together again, and see the world but not as you did before. I will definitely be reading it again. Buy it here: https://beautyandthescribbles.wordpress.com/2018/01/17/turtles-all-the-way-down-by-john-green-review/
- Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment
Admittedly, my hair has probably had it pretty rough this winter, what with the party season and the baltic weather, it was in need of a pick-me-up. I spied this little beauty on a lunch break and decided that my evening was going to be an all out pamper, which included snacks and Friends episodes, of course.
I have used this product twice now (once a week for me!), and I am really impressed! Not only does my hair feel more moisturised, but it also gives it that ‘just finished up at the hairdressers’ shine, and god knows we all want that in a simple form, well here it is in one bottle!
I’m also impressed by the wait time on this, only 3 minutes! So it’s perfect if you’re pressed for time but still want a little pamper.
Aussie Miracle Deep Treatment, you can stay.
- Manhunt Unabomber
So two days out of my January consisted of binge watching this, the show that everyone has been raving about.
If you haven’t seen it before it’s based on the true story of the FBI trying to hunt down an elusive terrorist known as the Unabomber. I have to admit I didn’t know much about the real event until I started watching this series, but it is incredibly interesting.
Season 1 is on Netflix, so grab a mug of something hot and some biscuits and get settled in for eight gripping episodes.
- Tassel Earrings
These are my latest obsession. After seeing a lot of fashion bloggers sporting them, I fell in love, but it was one of those, will they look that good on me or will I just look like I’ve cut off some of my curtains and stuck them to my ears situations. Luckily, the pair I had for Christmas don’t make me look like I’ve been doing curtain arts and crafts, they are lovely. These beaut’s are from Primark and are only £3! They now also come in black, pale pink, grey, hot pink, white, and purple. You have my full permission to leave this post to go and get them!
- One Night With My Ex
So I’m a little late to the party with this one, but there is no stopping me now, I’ve become a little obsessed with this show. Believe it or not, I hadn’t heard of this show until a few weeks ago when my Twitter feed became clogged with tweets about an Amy and a Tom from the show. So predictable me had to find out what had happened and that’s when I became hooked.
For those of you that haven’t seen the show, it focuses on three different couples who, as you can guess by the title of the show, aren’t together anymore. The three couples meet in an apartment/hotel to talk and answer questions about why they broke up, and can choose to spend the night with their ex if they wish. I know what you’re thinking, who would actually want to sit in a room with their ex?!
It has become my guilty pleasure, to the point where I am all caught up and waiting for next week’s episode. I think my favourite episode has to be the one with the couple Joseph and Ellie, trust me; it is something you have to watch!
What are your January Loves? I’d love to hear them below! 💛
