Some Things I've Been Enjoying.

With Christmas just gone, I've found myself enjoy some bits and bobs, with nowhere to talk about them as the December Faves got bumped to make room for the 2017 Beauty Favourites. Every time I use these products I kinda wanna shout about how much I love them, so here is me, shouting (typing) about some (unintentional) pink/red/black things which I think are ~the bomb~.

As you can see I finally got around to trying some Glossier (thank you Mum), the brand so rightly lives up to the hype, and I've thrown in some fashion/life things because I think they're great also...
(Wow, long intro considering I could have just written 'I like these things')

Glossier The Cherry Balm Dot Com - I've recently toned it down a little with the lipstick, and this has been the perfect replacement. The cherry coloured tint to your lips, while it keeps them feeling moisturised, yet not slippy or super shiny.

Glossier Super Bounce Serum - This has made such a difference to my skin in a short amount of time. It just looks plumper and healthier. It just gives your skin that extra something you didn't know it was lacking.

Glossier Cloud Paint - a little goes a long way with this, it only takes the tiniest amount to add a natural flush to your cheeks. I have the shade dusk which is, funnily enough, a dusky pink with an orange tone to it. I'm dying to give the others a try and would be interested in experimenting with mixing the colours a little. I love the formula, and using a cream blush, for a change, is great, unlike my other blushers, it does not look at all powdery (obviously, it's cream)

#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso - There has been a lot of talk in the blogosphere about this book, so I finally gave in and bought myself a copy. I'm going to write an in-depth post on this soon so I won't bang on about it too much in this one. I really like the tone of the writer in this, it's very relatable, it makes your dreams seem doable (which they are) and there are some useful life tips mixed in amongst my autobiographical feel to the words.

Zara Bag - I have fallen deeply in love with the bag from Zara. The small burgundy has filled a gap in my wardrobe. There is a removable strap if you want to wear it crossbody, or a handle if you just fancy carrying it/hooking it on your arm. The structured boxy shape makes it look a lot of pricey than it was, it was a bargain and a half. It fit in all you need, honestly, it may look small, but looks I can be deceiving. I managed to take all of the essentials and sneak in a decent number of jelly shots into a club on NYE. I just feel great when I wear this bag, it looks great, makes enough of a statement (without being too loud) and does its job.

Next Jumper - This jumper is so damn cosy, the quality is great, and it's so soft. It's not too long, it's not too cropped, it sits just where I like it. I am crazy about the bright red shade, and it has pompoms knitted into the fabric which adds an extra bit of texture (and a sort of festive vibe, which I'm ignoring, as it's now January).

ASOS Beanie - You might have guessed by now, but I like the colour pink. So when my sister got me this pink beanie for Christmas I was pretty pleased. I love the double fur pompom, I've been after one with two fluffy pompoms for a while now. I like the knit, and I like the colour. I just think it's nice tbh.

Bullet Journal - New Year, New Bullet Journal. I've made things a lot simpler with my BJ (~don't pretend you didn't giggle~) I am really enjoying it again and feeling pretty damn organised (video coming soon). Even if you're not into the Bullet Journal concept, I'd get it for the dotted paper, it's life-changing.

Muji 0.38 Pen - It's probably a little sad to put a pen in with my favourites, but sometimes you just gotta. I'm sure all you stationery lovers will understand where I am coming from. It writes nicely, the nib is super fine, and although it's inky, it does not smudge, which being a left-handed super smudger makes that the best pen quality ever.
