DECEMBER FAVOURITES

decemberfavourites

Hello hello! How are you beautiful people doing? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas full of great food, gifts and time well spent with your loved ones  ^_^

I can’t believe we’re nearly at the end of 2015. I’ve decided to start one of my new years resolutions early, because, why not?! I’m going to start doing a monthly favourites post covering not just beauty but fashion, snacks and any other things that come to mind. So without further ado, let’s go!

BEAUTY

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1993

I spoke about this lipstick in a previous post and I’ve really been struggling with wearing any other product on my lips. Seriously, I’m obsessed. The colour, the formula, the colour *sigghhhhh*, it’s beautiful.

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Deborah

When day turns to night I like to opt for a deeper lipstick shade. I’ve been on the search for a brown lipstick in forever. This lipstick is very expensive but it’s offset by the amazing formula, very much like the Urban Decay formula but even better dare I say. The colour is stunning and a little bit different from your standard red or berry.

Koji Dollywink Eyeliner

For a long time this eyeliner has been sitting in my collection without use, however recently I’ve started using it again and I can’t remember why I stopped. It is easy to apply, pigmented, long lasting, doesn’t smudge and it easy to remove when used with a good eyeshadow primer.

Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette

I don’t think I’m ever going to get bored with this palette. The warm brown shade is amazing for the crease and THAT glitter shade though! Whenever I wear this shadow and I catch a glimpse of the shimmer I take a second to appreciate how beautiful it looks. It’s amazing for nights out/ date nights.

Narciso Rodriguez Narciso EDP

Narciso Rodriguez is slowly becoming one of my favourite perfume brands. This has become my signature daytime scent. If you’re into your woody, musky, white florals then this is one for you. It’s fresh, subtle, sexy and grown up.

FASHION

Camel Coat

I’ve been on the hunt for a camel coat in forever and I found the most gorgeous wool and cashmere blend coat in Debenhams AND in a petite size. It is literally the most beautiful thing and fits like a dream. There’s something about a camel coat that make you look put together, classy and chic making it a staple in every closet.

Dune Trish Over the Knee Boots (Grey Suede / Leather mix)

For the longest time I’ve steered away from boots because high street shops in the UK generally don’t cater to slim calves like mine *sob* However! I took a random gander to Dune and came across this pair which looked unusually slim, I tried them on and my goodness they fit so well! I’ve always wanted to rock the over the knee look and this grey pair comes just over the knees and I love that it is half suede and half leather. I’m looking to purchase a black pair now!

Nubian Skin Tights in Cafe Au Lait

Any darker skin ladies know the struggle of finding skin colour tights. Either you wear a pair that is too light, buy a £25 pair from Wolford or just go bare legged. Refusing to do either of the three I decided to try this pair from a relatively new brand Nubia Skin and I have to say I am very impressed. I picked mine up at House of Fraser for £8 a pair, the colour Cafe Au Lait is perfect for me and allows me to rock the bare legged look for less.

SNACKS

Nakd Bar Caffe Mocha

I love Nakd bars, they are so delicious I can’t believe they’re actually good for you. This bar covers my chocolate addiction and has a strong coffee taste, it’s so decadent and makes the tastiest afternoon snack.

Nescafe Instant Coffee – Gingerbread Latte

I’m not a fan of instant coffee sachets, I always find that they taste a bit rubbish to be honest but constantly buying hot drinks from coffee shops always seems so wasteful. I recently tried this limited edition holiday flavour from Nescafe and I have stocked up on them for a significant period of time. They taste delicious, creamy and actually give a good amount of froth. My favourite hot drink at the moment for sure.

So guys tell me what have been your monthly favourites and also what are you getting up to on New Years Eve? Comment below and let me know.

P.s. See you next year!

Lots of love,

Jay

  1. Is the Dollywink liner you have a pencil or liquid liner? I had the liquid liner due to all the raves but I found it to be watery, not that pigmented and it smudged!
    Oooh love that camel coat! So classy.
    The Nubia Skin tights look great! It seems like such a basic concept – offer tights for all skin tone at an affordable price point. It’s silly that you’d have to pay more in the past!
    Great list of favourites. I’m staying in the relaxing for NYE – I *might* even stay up to midnight lol!

    1. The one I have is liquid and comes in a felt tip form, I didn’t like it at first but with a good primer it works really well for me. Haha I feel ya on the NYE plans, I’m definitely not going out this year- too cold and too overhyped!
