Being in lockdown I have had plenty of time to test out new products and whilst I have taken the opportunity to try and save as much money as I can throughout these past few months, it was recently my birthday and was gifted some lovely presents and even a few that I had brought for myself too, I had to do a Monthly Favourites list!
REVLON HAIR DRYER
If you have mega thick hair like me you will know the dread of hair wash day knowing you’ll have to spend absolutely ages drying your hair. Such a pain! As I do not have £500 to spend on a Dyson hair dryer, the dream, I saw really good reviews for the Revlon hair drying brush and I am so glad I brought it! The paddle/brush is so big it’s goes through my hair effortlessly with no knots.
I have always had such a basic skin care ‘routine’, if you could even call it that?! I just used micellar water to remove my makeup and a face mask here and there. For my birthday I was given a ‘The Ordinary’ set as I have been going on about it for soooo long and WOW what a life changer! The products feel so simple and natural on my skin and I love how each product is targeted so specifically – my skin has been loving it so far. You’re welcome skin!
NEW EYESHADOW PALETTES
A recent goal of mine is to get back into makeup, I used to always be so creative with my makeup and would really enjoy the time I spent doing my makeup in the morning before work and even just going out and about, I would never leave the house without my face on. That’s not because I was insecure but because I loved doing it and was my hobby! So for my birthday I got the Jeffree Star X Shane Dawson Conspiracy palette, the Stacy Marie Carnival palette and I soon after purchased the Jeffree Star Cremated palette, I love them all and cannot wait to hopefully show off the looks I create! Trust the process.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS: NICOLE GUERRIERO GLOW KIT
This is another beauty item I was gifted and it has completely changed my face! These highlighters are absolutely stunning and even on a pale complexion like mine, all of the shades go perfect with any skin tone. Very pigmented too!
NINTENDO SWITCH LITE
I have been trying so hard recently to limit my activity on my phone and especially social media, I’ve tried picking up a few books but I’m not always in the frame of mind to focus on a book so since I got my Switch Lite I spend a few moments out of my day away from social media but still involved in my technology on my Switch. Of course it helps that Animal Crossing is complete nostalgia for me!
MRS HINCH: LITTLE BOOK OF LISTS
I honestly cannot tell you how much this book has changed my life…..HEAR ME OUT! I know it’s just a book of lists and not much to it but the motivation I’ve got from this is insane. I used to be so so messy and my parents would constantly nag me about cleaning my room and bathroom but I would NEVER stick to keeping anything tidy I was so lazy. I then followed Mrs Hinch on Instagram, slowly started to fall in love and as an avid stationary lover I thought the way her lists looked were so cute so I got the book and my room and bathroom has never been cleaner! It’s amazing and something so simple has changed me from having a messy room 24/7 to everything being spotless!
I have linked everything for you all to check out if wanting to! I really love reading monthly faves as one, I’m nosey and like to check out what others are loving and two, I am open to recommendations! It’s nice to read reviews that you know are completely personally opinionated you know they’re truthful!
Comment below your one holy grail you couldn’t live without this month.
As always, thanks for reading. Lots of love
