I thought I’d share my December (how very 2015 of me) favourites. I’m giving you a selection of food, fashion and beauty products. Grab a cuppa and enjoy!
Rude Health almond drink
I used to be devoted to cereal for breakfast. Literally devoted. I genuinely thought I was being healthy by choosing Special K (or other cereal variations) day in, day out. However, earlier in the year I learnt just how bad it is for you. Devastating, but true.
I started to branch out with new breakfasts; from omelette to scrambled eggs and avocado, to porridge, which is when I discovered Rude Health’s almond drink.
Unlike some of the other almond drinks on the shelf, it contains rice which acts in place of sugar. It’s low in calories, high in healthy fats and contains 50% of your recommended intake of vitamin E to keep your skin glowing. It makes your porridge so tasty and creamy, I will never go back to milk again.
Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede Cologne
Until I bought this gorgeous fragrance, I was a Jo Malone virgin. I wanted a new scent for my wedding and after a fun sniffing session in store, I went for peony and blush suede for myself and also my bridesmaids.
Flowery and sweet, this fragrance is to die for. Plus it lasts on your skin and in the bottle.
The top note is red apple, with middle notes of peony, jasmine, rose and gillyflower and a base of suede. So opulent.
Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache Souffle
I was lucky enough to be given this body cream as a gift a while ago but only recently started using it. Why I waited I’ll never know. The Laura Mercier souffles are described as ‘ultrawhipped body cream in alluring scents inspired by the aroma of the French pâtisserie.’
Damn right, I had to stop myself from licking this off my arm it smells so good.
Topshop check scarf
Ooh I do love a new scarf when it gets chilly. I picked this beauty up in the Topshop sale after Christmas (was £22, now £12 and is still available – hurrah!)
It has a colourful green, red, yellow and blue check print that goes with a variety of outfits and is a comforting neck accessory. In fact, I think I’ve worn it every day since I bought it.
Skinnydip glitter unicorn case
Dress up your phone with a case from Skinnydip.
This particular number has all over unicorn print, complete with LIQUID GLITTER. Need I say more?!
Let me know if you have any favourites to share.
