January Favourites

This is my first ever monthly favourites post (high five!)! I just thought I'd share with you all what I have been loving over the month of January.

Breakfast at Tiffany's
This month I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time, with my mother. Not only was it a beautiful bonding moment for us but the film was hilarious, George Peppard is looking fiiiiiiiiiine and it's filled with relatable romance. I have no idea why I'd never watched it before because it is my kind of film entirely; for a kick off I love films from late 50s/early 60s, Vertigo is one of my all time favourites, and I think Audrey Hepburn is stunning. I'm hoping to watch some more Audrey film soon because I feel as though I've been missing out.

Sparkling Water
In an attempt to get healthy (which I'm failing at entirely) I've been drinking carbonated water in place of fizzy drinks. I've been mixing it with cordial or pure fruit juice, I love the taste and for 17p you can't go wrong really.

Striped Tops
A striped top is the staple to any wardrobe. This month I've been loving my white and black striped top with 3/4 length sleeves. I've been wearing it with dark blue jeans and an unbuttoned denim shirt or a chunky statement necklace. Very nautical and very chic.

        Striped top - Primark, £2                                                            Denim shirt - H&M, £15

Yankee Candle in Clean Cotton
My boyfriend bought me the giant jar one earlier this month as a return to university present which was extremely cute of him. It smells very crisp and scents the entire room. Even though I've had it burning for hours it still hasn't burned down very much at all.

Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood
I adore pretty much anything Vivienne Westwood does, apart from the giant globe bags because there are so many knock offs it makes them look cheap. This fragrance is one of my favourites and I rediscovered it this month after having a sort out of my dressing table. It smells like floral baby powder, it is extremely delicate but the scent lingers for ages after. There is only a tiny amount left so I'm hoping someone will buy me a bottle as a gift (hint hint) so I don't have to be without it too long. I love the little charm bracelet that comes with it, it's probably the closest I'll come to owning a piece of Westwood jewellery for now.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturiser
I usually use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion, which although it is great for my skin it isn't very budget friendly so I've gone back to using this little gem. This is one of the few moisturisers I can use without my face freaking out and giving me either very dry or very greasy skin. I have oily skin which becomes dry if I add anything to it. Covering acne used to be a nightmare because the area where I'd put product would make my skin dry and highlight the spot even more. Gross. This moisturiser has an oddly refreshing and cool feeling when applied to the skin and is absorbed in seconds. Right now it is on offer at Boots at 2 for £5 making it essentially half price!

Happy by Pharrell Williams
I love this song so much you just can't help but sing along. It is very motown-esque and better than some of the absolute shit which is coming out these days. I have been quite a fan of Pharrell ever since the N.E.R.D days. "Her ass is a spaceship I want to ride" is the best lyric of a song ever.

What have you been loving this month? 


  1. I'm not actually keen on the 'clean cotton' scent however I'm obsessed with yankee candle's 'vanilla frosting', it smells good enough to eat! xx

Did you know that in the film Toy Story, Sid's hallway carpet is the same design as the hallway carpet in The Shining? That's well creepy.
