Blogmas December 2017 Favourites

It only feels like yesterday that Blogmas began at the start of December. It’s crazy how time flies! I have had a really good December overall with ups and downs like everyone else but the festive nature has lifted me. I have got some great favourites to share with you and I hope you enjoy the read!

Beauty…

Marks & Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar

We all know I love beauty products and so I decided to treat myself to this beauty advent calendar from Marks & Spencer.  I had their calendar last year and it was such great value again this year at £35 (when you spend £35 in store). I have really looked forward to opening the cute little Christmas boxes each day and discovering some new products. I can’t wait to try them over the next few months!

Hand Cream

My hands have been SO DRY over the past few months and I have been loving using hand cream! I have discovered two lovely ones that I thought I would talk about. The first being the Zoella Winter Wonderhand cream. At first, I thought the scent was a little too mature but I have grown to love it. The formula is amazing and it looks so aesthetically pleasing alongside my grey and rose toned watch! The second hand cream I have been loving is the Rituals Ritual Of Ayurveda Hand Balm. It is so hydrating and leaves my hands feeling super soft!

Lipsticks

I really enjoyed writing my Blogmas Winter Lipsticks blog post and this inspired me to wear more of my beautiful lipsticks. I absolutely love the Rosie For Autograph lip colour in Nude Blush. It is such a perfect daytime shade.

Lifestyle…

Lighting Candles

Since my Blogmas Winter Candles blog post, I have been loving lighting a scented candle to fuel me through the day or to relax me during the evening. I particularly love the Yankee Candle Fireside Treats as it smells so sweet yet not too sickly. It is so comforting and smells like baking!

Reading

Winter is the perfect time for curling up with a great book on a cosy winter’s evening. I have recently started After You by JoJo Moyles and I am really enjoying it! The writing is so comforting and the story captures my attention. I love the endearing comedy of it too.

Decorative Pine Cones

I picked these adorable pine cones up from Petersham Nurseries and they have not only made stunning blogging props but they have made my living environment seem so festive. There is something magical about pine cones at Christmas.

Food…

SourcedBox

Last but not least who doesn’t love a Christmas Spice chocolate bar featured in the December Sourcedbox? I loved the bar last year and it still tastes just as amazing this year. It is made from such great ingredients too which I love.

I hope you enjoyed reading my December Favourites. What have you been loving this month?

    I really need to get a copy of After You because I enjoyed the first one.That will be on my book list for January! I’ve really been enjoying the M&S calendar too!

      Ooh you should get a copy of After You. It is one of those books that is just so lovely! The M&S calendar is so good! I can’t wait to try the products and I am going to make more of an effort to try my minis instead of buying big products as it is fun, saves money and you get to discover so many great things! I hope you have a lovely Christmas!

        Thank you. I was in the iTunes store to redeem some books that I had been given for Christmas, so I picked up After You as well. I’m about a quarter of the way through – not what I expected at all but I think the characters are so relatable!

        So glad you like it too! I am quite a slow reader so books last me a while and this one puts me in a good mood so that is good value for money I think!

        I’ve already finished – not the ending I was hoping for, but still a good read and although it’s quite a feel-good book, one part still made me cry!! Apparently there is a 3rd one in the series as well.

        I’m intrigued by the ending now! That’s great about a 3rd book!
