January Favourites

Right now I'm curled up in bed, my hair in a scaggily pony tail, mascara half way down my face, bruises all over my legs and no memory of last night. A night well spent in my opinion :D Hehe. One of my friends from home came to visit and yesterday was her last day of being here, so we celebrated....a lot....

January is over! It's been surprisingly good (evil exams aside) so here are the things I've been enjoying over the last month:

Beauty:

Cure Natural Aqua Gel - This stuff is magical and wonderful and beautiful, if you don't have it go and buy it! :P It's a really gentle exfoliator, I use it twice a week to buff away the dead skin of my face (the gel makes it come off in little balls which is disgusting, but it works :P). I've been using this for a while now and it's a constant favourite. It just makes my skin so pretty and soft * - *



Batiste Dry Shampoo - I'm lazy, and this means that I can get to my 9am lectures without horrible greasy hair, so I don't have to shower in the mornings when I'd rather sleep (although I do still shower and clean myself, I'm not totally icky :P this just makes it easier when my hairs a little ew :P).



Nars The Multiple Orgasm Blush - A new buy and a new love, it's SO SO SO SO SO SO pretty, I've used it every time I've gone out. The colour gives a really pretty glow and the slight shimmer really brings your face to life. I'm in love <3



Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - As you can tell from my last post I like this a lot :P



Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat - It's beautifulllllll, I love using this so much, at first I hardly used any and was really precious about it, but the past week or so I've used more and it really brightens up my face and makes me look so much more glowy and pretty :P



Random Things:

Starter For Ten - David Nicholls - I just finished this book and it's amazing. I haven't laughed so much at a book in forever > . < If you like cringey but hilarious situations read this book, I wish I'd read it before I arrived at Uni, but it's still a great read now :P



Nightwish Imaginaerum - I really like this album, a few of the songs are a bit weird and I don't really like :P But overall it's good, very classic Nightwish, I especially love Storytime, although the weird jazz like song Slow Love Slow just makes me laugh :P



NS Yoon Ji The Reason I Became A Witch - Ahhhhh! It's just so catchy, and NS Yoon Ji is beautiful * - * Girl crush!



V For Vendetta (film) - My friend made me watch this a couple of weeks ago, it's amazing, I really want to read the graphic novel now! It did make me cry quite a bit, I do that a lot at films :P The ending was just so poignant, I didn't know if I was happy or sad :P



Finally I have a house for next year!!!! So very very happy, we went to see so many horrible damp, falling apart places (and one VERY creepy landlord who shook my hand and then held it while he told us about the house :S ) but then we found a perfect house, and were told it was ours the next morning ^ - ^ YAY!
