January Favourites

I'm a little behind with this post but it's ok better late than never right?
One of my favourites this month is a product I have tried before but only now fallen in love with. It's the wake me up foundation from rimmel. I bought this when it first came out but got a shade too dark that really couldn't use unless by some miracle I had a bit of a tan. However this time I went to pick up some foundation as I had completely ran out and this was on offer at a bargain £5.99 and they had my shade! I would say it's medium coverage but buildable. Definitely becoming a staple in my make up collection.

The next thing I have been loving this month is these tweezers by la-tweez, these were a Christmas present and make touching up your eyebrows so much easier. They have a light built in  and a little mirror in the casing. I don't know about you but when doing my eyebrows normally I am constantly spinning around trying to get the right lighting. Not anymore though! Love it ! 

I'm really struggling for make up and beauty favourites this month because I've mostly been using the same old stuff.  I have a few different things though. 

As some of you may already know I'm constantly battling with my weight. This year I am refusing to do any faddy diets or fast track weight loss I'm simply going to make little changes and hope I can become healthier and start losing weight. One such change is swapping out dairy milk for unsweetened almond milk. I actually really like it, to be honest you can't really taste it when it's in a hot drink. I really recommend it if you are looking for a milk alternative.  

Along the same lines is an alternative to white bread. Normally if I wanted to cut out white bread I would go for wholemeal but now I have discovered rye bread. I'm still occasionally having white or wholemeal but rye bread is great with avacado and sometimes a poached egg. I'm really trying to get healthy this year and I'm finding just trying healthier alternatives is helping. Rather than cutting things out I will have a healthier version the majority of time and treat myself with the not so healthy version now and again. 

My final favourite for this month is a lovely YouTube family! The sacconejoly's.  I have been watching these guys videos for a while now but recently I have become a little obsessed and waiting for their video at 6pm or if I'm working then they will be the first video I watch when I get home. They are such a lovely little family and the kids are adorable and I wish I was friends with them! Haha! In all seriousness my YouTube obsession is a little out of hand these days. I go to bed and watch videos for hours when I'm meant to be sleeping oops. It's just a difficult place to get out of once you are in. 

Well that's all for this month I guess not an awful lot but I want to try and do these every month this year. Have you discovered any new loves this month?
