December Favourites

Fudge Violet Toning Shampoo

Having heard wonderful things about this shampoo, I decided to give it a go! I had recently dyed my hair at the hairdressers and received a bit of a lilac tint. This shampoo is perfect for topping it up! I try to keep this in my hair for at least 10 minutes in order to see proper results. To follow, I usually mix a little bit of fudge paintbox colour with my conditioner and leave it in for 5-10 minutes. 
I highly recommend this product if you wish to have a bit of a lilac tint to your hair. 

Tisserand De-Stress

I've recently blogged about this product, but it has to be said, it's one of the loveliest oils I've used. I'm a huge fan of using my oil burners, and this really helps create a relaxing environment after work or later on at night. 
I'm hoping to purchase some more Tisserand products soon as they're so lovely. It really pays to invest in good quality oils! 

This Works 5 in 1 Water

I purchased a smaller version as I was unsure whether I'd like this product or not, but I really really love it. It removes my make up well, and leaves my skin feeling fresh. Since I started using it, I've noticed I don't suffer from blemishes or spots as often as I used to. It really helps to decongest the skin. 
It seems a little expensive for a cleanser/make up remover/decongestant, but it's worth it, even if you use it a couple of times a week. 
I already need to re-purchase!

Bobbi Brown Eyeliner

I've been looking for a good felt-tip eyeliner for quite some time now. They always seem to dry out after a while. This one by Bobbi Brown is a bold black, long lasting eyeliner. It doesn't smudge or appear too watery. It takes some time to get used to applying it, but it's definitely worth the price tag for its quality and colour. 

Rimmel London White Khol Pencil

I've recently been using this white pencil on my water line as it makes my eyes seem a lot bigger! 
It's such a great tip! 

Do you have any favourite products this month?

Happy 1st of December everyone! 
I'm trying to be a little bit more organised this year, and get most of the Christmas presents sorted at the beginning of the month! I've also been busy assembling these adorable crackers and filling them with lots of lovely treats, instead of the usual rubbish you get inside Christmas crackers. These were purchased from Not On The Highstreet last week. I just had to share them on here as I think they're really lovely. I'm hoping to do the same thing each year now, it's such a great idea.

I'm also intending on making some DIY mulling spices sachets you'll be able to drop into a saucepan full of red wine! These will probably be handed out to be opened before Christmas - We all love a nice mug of mulled wine to get in the Christmas spirit!
I'll be sharing all my DIY ideas with you on here, although I'm not sure how many projects I'll have on the go this year!

As usual, the weekend has gone by so quickly, and it's back to work tomorrow. I'm still suffering from this silly flu, I've developed an awful chesty cough and feel really worn out. I hope it'll go away soon. 
Next weekend will be spent at local Christmas craft fairs and celebrating the one year anniversary of being with my boyfriend with a lovely meal out!

I hope you've all had a very lovely weekend
