January Favorites

Hello people of the internet! It's been a long time since I did a monthly favorites post. Nothing has really stuck with me enough to become a favorite in the last few months. I decided to really take a look through my makeup bag and my everyday life. I found so many things that I didn't even realize were taking up most of my life because I was hands down obsessed.  This is just a few of them!

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Mama - This was a lovely secret Santa present. I opened it up and immediately fell in love with the burnt orange shade. I think it goes with just about every look possible. And, it goes really well with my hair at the moment too!

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Setting Spray - I wasn't too sure about this spray the first couple times I tried it. But, I am not a quitter! I decided to try a few different ways to go about using a setting spray and I finally fell head over heels in love with this stuff. It's an absolute bargain as well. I use it as a primer and in between steps of my makeup routine. I also like to spray my beauty blender with it and dab my skin after I apply any powders!

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette - Where do I even start? I was pining after this palette for what seemed like forever. My awesome boyfriend was kind enough to get it for me for Christmas. I was already a huge fan of Urban Decay (if that isn't obvious) and this palette might be the best thing they've ever done. Oh, and my favorite shade is definitely Extra Bitter!

*YSL Top Secrets Makeup Remover - When the lovely PR people from YSL beauty sent me this I wasn't sure it was going to be anything out of the ordinary. But, I was proven wrong. It takes my makeup off in seconds and doesn't leave my skin too oily! I couldn't recommend it more.

Planning & Bullet Journalling - Once again, Dan hit it out of the park and picked up a coveted Ban.do Agenda for me for Christmas. I love spending my Sunday's making all of my plans for the week. I've also decided to try to bullet journal every day. I started doing it last March and would fall in and out of love with it. Using it every day has made my life so much easier. Would you guys like to see an inside look into my journal? I was thinking of doing a walk through of my February spread!

Kitten Academy - This is a bit of a weird one. Kitten Academy is basically a foster home for, you guessed it, kittens. I basically became aware of it through youtube. They have a 24/7 stream going on. My mom and I pretty much always have it on the TV. I even have it on my phone right now, as I'm typing this. Kitten Academy has a special lil place in my heart. They take kittens and their moms in until they are old enough to be rehomed. This means they get to enjoy their little kitten lives playing and getting attention instead of being in a cage in a shelter until they're adopted. The people who run Kitten Academy do so because they love animals. They don't get paid for it, they pay for it. But if this paragraph has convinced you to help out in any way, here is the link to their patreon

Shameless - JESUS CHRIST! I think I saved one of the best things for last. I randomly started watching Shameless in December with my parents. I would only ever see it in its and pieces. Then, I sat down and watched a few episodes with them and I was instantly in love. For some reason, I continued watching it with my parents even though they were in the middle of season four. But, I also started it from the beginning with Dan. Not going to lie, I'm kind of starting to get confused but I can remember the last show I was this obsessed with!

  1. I'm definitely going to recommend Kitten Academy to my OH as his dream job is to be a foster parent for kittens. He loves cats so much it's kinda cute tehe.

    I've only got two lip crayons from Colourpop but their range sounds amazing and I'm tempted to buy more of their stuff! I haven't yet found a physical store over here though so might have to buy it online...

    I don't really have any January favourites but I've been wearing my faux fire coat a lot lately and I went to the House of MinaLima at the beginning of the month which was amazing.

  2. That Ban.Do Agenda is ace, I had one last year and loved it!! Kitten Academy sounds like my favourite thing, ever, to be honest. I can't believe I've never heard of it before, I'll have to pay their site a visit! Great favourites :)
