Books, blush and buying bright clothes

I still can’t comprehend how January is already over! 2016 is off to a great start, with plans for the summer being made and lots of exciting things happening. It’s my first favourites of the year and I can’t quite believe it.
I couldn’t not feature the Urban Decay Naked palette in my monthly favourites, it has literally been the only eyeshadow palette I’ve been using this month. The different looks you can create makes it such a great all round palette – I have to say it may be up there with my top palettes. If you want a full review with looks just leave me a comment down below!
Recently, I’ve been really getting into more lifestyle/fashion books as they’re so great as a light read or if you’re in need of some inspiration. Love x Style x Life by Garance Dore is probably my current favourite. The photos are great and the range of subjects talked about in the book makes it a good all rounder. A bonus is it looks super gorgeous in photos! 
For Christmas I got the cutest little Too Faced set that came with a mini melted lipstick and a long-lasting 16-hour blush in ‘love hangover‘. You may be pleased to know the set didn’t include limited edition products (I know I definitely was) as I have totally fallen in love with the blush. It is such a nice everyday shade and I can build it up or keep it pretty natural. True to the name the blush is super long-lasting and despite not trialing it out for 16 hours to see how it fared, the longevity is pretty great. I’ll definitely be purchasing the full sized version when this runs out. 
This may come as a shock to some of you but this month I took the plunge and… bought a top that wasn’t white black or grey. I’ve been on the hunt for a nice red top for a while and I finally found one from Topshop. The fit is great, it’s slightly cropped with a boxy look and bell sleeves (which I roll up because I’m not really a fan of them). I honestly love this jumper so much and I love it as a statement top and it has be making its way into lots of my outfits recently.
I bought the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer purely because they didn’t have the Collection concealer in my local superdrug and I needed a new concealer at the time. Slowly but surely this little tube has made its way into my daily routine and I actually really like it. It certainly gives me the ‘awake look’ as it has little specks of glitter although they are not to large that they’re really noticeable. A small amount goes a long way and I definitely continue to use it!
I hope you have had a great start to 2016 and I would love to know what you have been loving in January!
