January Favourites 

My first favourites post 😁 

January has been a loooong month.. thank God it’s over!! 

These are just a few different bits and bobs that I enjoyed/used throughout the month of January. 

1. Mc Niffes Boiled Boxty 

To be honest, this isn’t just a January favourite. This has been a favourite of mine since late 2016. Boxty is basically boiled potato and salt shaped into a loaf. I use it for slimming world, as a substitute for bread. It’s very tasty when fried for a couple of minutes and a healthy alternative to bread 💪🏻 

2. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Perfume 


I received this perfume as a gift for Christmas and OMG the smell is Devine. Probably one of the nicest perfumes I’ve used. It came in a gift set with a YSL travel size mascara and eyeliner, both of which are really good. This perfume isn’t on the cheap side so I don’t go crazy with it everyday. I will definitely be repurchasing this when it’s gone. 

3. Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation 

This is my new Holy Grail foundation. I have combination to dry skin, more on the dry side. Any foundation I’ve used in the past has clung to my dry patches especially on my nose, but not this one 🙏🏻   It’s light weight and medium coverage and definitely adds a glow to my skin. 

4. Rimmel London Match Perfection Loose Powder 

As I mentioned above, I have dry skin and again any powder I’ve used in the past to set my foundation has just clung to my dry patches. This one doesn’t do that. I got mine in translucent so it doesn’t add any extra pigment to my skin. It’s so light on the skin and sets my foundation and under eye concealer really well. 

5. Barry M Fix & Mist Spray – Dewy Finish 

Another beauty related item, but this makeup setting spray has changed my whole foundation game!! This was really inexpensive and when I apply it over my collection foundation and rimmel loose powder, my makeup lasts ALL DAY. I’m not lying ALL DAY. I don’t know what it does but it’s like superglue. A few little sprays across my face and it leaves my makeup looking fresh & dewy. I will definitely be buying this again ❣️ 

And we’re finished. I could probably rave on about a few more products (fibre one 90 bars, slimming world in general, basically all food 😂) but I’ll stick to my top 5. These few items are things I’ve really enjoyed throughout the month of January and made the month that little bit easier to tolerate 😊 

Hope you all enjoyed and I’ll be back soon with a new recipe I’m working on 😝
