❤ January Favourites ❤

Hey everyone! Sorry this post is very late... I was quite busy last weekend. Every month for now on I will do a Favourites post which will only include Beauty, Music and Random things (like books or films). I am not including fashion because I basically have the same favourite hoodies or jeans every month.
It's Midterm thanks be to God! I'm so happy!
Now let's get on with to my January Favourites.
Enjoy!

Beauty


Make Up:
MaxFactor Eye Brightening Mascara for Blue Eyes
I love this as it has a hint of blue which is great for adding definition to sapphire eyes (as I like to call them). I wear this sometimes to school as I it kind of does brighten my eyes, and makes me look more awake.

Essence Lash and Brow Gel Mascara
This is great for fixing up messy eyebrows (as I do have) and works well as a clear mascara. It can lengthen your lashes, giving the same effect as a normal black/brown mascara but with no colour. Great for school!

Essence Cover-Stick (in Matt Sand)
This concealer is a life-saver! I use it for dark circles and spots and it blends in very well with my skin. It's also good for school as it is quick to use and you don't need to use foundation or BB cream.

Vaseline Rosy Lips 
I absolutely adore Vaseline, so I decided to buy the Rosy Lips version, and wow! It tints my lips wonderfully as well as moisturising and protecting them. A beauty-must have!

Penneys Foundation/Concealer Brush
I bought this simply because it was around €2! I thought I might as well get it as I didn't have any brushes for my BB cream or concealer. I really like it, especially the concealer brush. It works very well.



Skincare:
Boots Tea Tree Witch Hazel Night Treatment Gel
I love this gel; it has a nice tea tree scent and doesn't sticky on your face as you sleep. I think my face has improved a tiny bit as there are less spots (also with the help of Sudocrem)

Fenjal Shower Mousse
Ahhh this body wash has such a calming, gorgeous fragrance and leaves body smelling divine. So lovely.


Fragrance:
Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
This is too good. So magical. It will probs be my fave perfume every month, but we'll see. ;)


Hair Products:
VO5 Heat Protect Spray
I felt I needed to get a decent heat protector, as I do blow dry my hair almost every day before going to school. You have to when in a rush. That's why I bought this, and it's fab! Don't spray too much though, it'll make it lobger to dry your hair.

Batiste Dry Shampoo (Urban and Edge Graffiti)
This is THE hair ESSENTIAL! Dry Shampoo is amazing and absolutely loved this urban and edgy version. I got it for Christmas and it is my favourite so far!

VO5 Revive Me Daily Conditioner
I've talked about this conditioner in my Amazing Hair Products post in November, and it's awesome! My hair feels nourished and and refreshed after I use this conditioner.

Music

Album:
Taylor Swift's album Red 
(Favourite songs: Red, 22, Stay Stay Stay)
T-Swizzle is just the perfect girl, and brought out a magnificent CD and I am not one bit disappointed. Throughout January I was popping my headphones on, and silently singing along in the car while making up my own music videos for her songs. Does anyone else ever do that with songs that don't have music videos? Maybe not. Maybe I'm just a weirdo like that. :/


Singles: 
Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia
One word. Classic.


Kiss You by One Direction
How could I not include this number one hit? Such a catchy song and isn't the video just so funny?


Random


Books/Magazines:
Lauren Conrad Beauty
I ordered this on Amazon, after I heard a lot of good things about this phenomenon.  The queen of winged out eyeliner and fashionista Lauren gives fantastic tips on make up, skincare, and health in this ridiculously good beauty bible. I couldn't get my head out of it.

KISS Magazine (February Issue)
KISS will forever be in my monthly favourites. The magazine just keeps on getting better and better. It is a marvelous glamorous magazine full of fashion, beauty and awesome advice, and guess what? It's 100% Irish! The best magazine EVER!

Teen Vogue (December/January Issue)
Of course, Teen Vogue is more famous than KISS. It is very entertaining with interesting photo shoots and interviews with celebs. But what does annoy me is the AMOUNT OF ADS!!!
It really bugs me. Like, seriously.
Anyway, I liked the Kieran Shipka interview the best, and the 1D photo shoot obvs. I got Zayn on my cover! :D

KISS Annual 2013
Last year, KISS' first ever annual came into stores, and I was super excited to get it as soon as it came out, even though I only began buying them. It was so good. Unbelievable.
So, this year I hoped for better. And I got what I wanted!
It has plenty of quizzes and horoscopes, and posters, which I love. What was great was the DIY Spa Treatments, Cupcake recipes and the 'How to have your own Spa Party' article.
I mean, it's just... wow. <3


Movie:
Pitch Perfect!



Best. Movie. Ever
I saw this with my friends and it was soooo funny! And they do  aca-amazing song covers!
If you heart Glee, you will absolutely looove this!

Snack:
Casbury's chocolate fingers! Mmmm so good! :P



Blog of the Month:
Bobbly Rainbow Socks
Wow, Flower is the kind of person I have ever wanted to be. Unique, different, quirky, creative. Wow. Her photos are wonderful, and her outfits and her bedroom suit her personality perfectly.


A picture from her blog; her outfits are super cool!

Youtuber of the Month:
Michelle Phan
Michelle is incredible. She does great make-up tutorials, as well as inspiring short films and advice videos. Just watch this recent video by her to see how fab she is!




Thanks for reading, y'all!
