January Favourites

January. Lets be honest, bit of a naff month. Christmas is well and truly over, the sun in no where to be seen and it's hitting -10 in some places! Whilst I'm sat here snuggled inside I thought I would share some of my favourite products from this month with you. Let me know what you think as it's the first time I've done one! 

Somerset Meadow - Crabrtee & Evelyn 
I bought this perfume in the sale a few months ago as I was running low and wanted to try something new! I'm guessing it was in the sale as it's more of a summer fragrance but I really like as it is light and floral. I've also had a few compliments when wearing it so it's a winner for me! 

Wash-bag - Cath Kidston 
 I received this wash bag for Christmas and love it! The pattern is really pretty and it's actually quite a good size! I'm looking to my next holiday so I can use it! 

Pukka Pad - The Range 
 I started my second semester at university this week so obviously I needed a new notepad! This Pukka Pad is great. It has dividers in it meaning I can separate my notes for each module, keeping everything neat and organised. It's also not a bad colour and I keep my pen in the ring binder bit at the side so I don't loose it, 

Nivea Hydro Care - Boots 
 The next thing is my Nivea Hydro Care lip salve. This has been a life saver, not only this month but throughout winter. As you all know your lips get super dry when it's cold so this is great to keep in your bag and pop on every few hours. 

Frozen cup - Clinton Cards 
I think this last product is my absolute favourite! I'm not a tea or coffee drinker so I don't get to drink out of all the pretty mugs which are available, I used to just drink juice from boring glass tumblers...until now! My sister kindly bought me this Frozen cup with straw for Christmas and it's fantastic. You can even pop it in the freezer and the special ice round the outside freezes to keep your drink cold. Fancy! Don't get me wrong my family have given me a few funny looks but it's only like having a princess mug or something! 

Well that's it for this month! Hopefully I'll do another one in February! 
Have you got any favourite products this month?

Happy New Year!

I think I can still get away with saying "Happy New Year" despite it being January 13th! 
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year, spending time with people you love the most and having a well deserved break. 
To begin the new year I thought I would share with you some images from my Christmas break, and see whether my Christmas was much different from yours? 

So this year we had Christmas at our family home, giving myself and my sister the opportunity to dress the table. We don't like to go too over the top, just to make it look pretty for the special day. Looking back at these pictures is making me sooo hungry! What do you have on your Christmas dinner?

On New Years day we went for a stroll around Whitby, beautiful but very windy!

How did you spend your first day of 2015? Do you have any Christmas/New Year traditions?
