So we are nearly at the end of December, Wow that went quickly! December always seems to go by like a flash, we are counting down the month for the Christmas parties, Christmas and New year!
The last week of December is always a funny time, no one knows what day it is, and if you are anything like me, you will more than likely be in your Christmas onesie watching your favourite films or binge watching box sets (no? is that just me ?)
Anyway, let me share with you the things I have been loving throughout December.
Soap And Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub
It is no secret by now that I love all things Soap and Glory and this body Scrub is no exception! It smells amazing, a mixture of shea butter and citrus scents. It leaves my skin feeling so soft. I have used it on areas where I tend to get hard skin, it has worked wonders on my elbows and feet, and has left them feeling very smooth and soft.
L’Oréal Paris Paradise Extatic Mascara
This mascara came out earlier this year and loads of beauty bloggers were raving about it! After trying it for myself I can see why. It leaves my lashes looking so much fuller
The application wand makes it very easy to apply. This mascara has real staying power and lasts throughout the day, I haven’t had to reapply it.
Another great plus for me is that it doesn’t clump my lashes together and it is very easy to remove at the end of the day, other mascaras I have used have taken ages to remove.
Models Own silver glitter nail polish
This nail varnish has been a real staple for me throughout December! I have used it at every opportunity. I have been layering it on top of my favourite nail colours, (mainly the colours that I included in my autumn nail picks) to add a bit a Christmas sparkle to my nails.
This polish dries very quickly and lasts for about 5 days with a good top coat.
Blogosphere Magazine – Issue 14
This is the first issue I have bought of Blogosphere and I wished I bought it ages ago! It is so useful. I love all the articles that offer blogging tips, and all the features with other bloggers, It is very inspiring and I have discovered loads of new bloggers to follow. I will definitely be buying more issues in the future.
Rimmel Stay Matte Lip Liquid Lip Colour – 500 Fire Starter
I have used a few of these lip colours before and as you know I love a matte lip colour! I have gone for a bit of a statement red this time and I’m loving it!
These lip colours are easy to wear all day and they stay put as well, I only had to re-apply once. Another great plus is that it doesn’t stain my lips, other red lipsticks I have used leave a red stain on my lips, which hangs around until the next morning!
Feud Bette and Joan
Feud has recently started on BBC Two but BBC Iplayer has released the whole series as a box set (yes! for us to binge watch!) This series stars Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. They play the old-school movie stars Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, the series is quite biographical and is set in the time period surrounding the time they filmed ‘Whatever happened to baby Jane?’
The two women were rumoured to be bitter rivals throughout their careers. They fought over men and they fought over parts. Both Sarandon and Lange are amazing as Davis and Crawford and it is quite fascinating to watch. The supporting cast in this series are all amazing too. As a fan of film noir and classic movie stars, this series is right up my street. This has to be by far one of the best series I have seen this year.
So there are my December favourites. I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I’d love to know what you have been loving this December? xx
