My January Favourites

Say hello to the first five favourites of the year! This January I've probably got my best selection of favourites. These five things really round up what my month has been all about. From keeping track and stylish to keeping warm in the cold snow. Let me tell you a little more about my these five things.

My first favourite are these gorgeous pointed grey stiletto boots from Clarks that John got me for my birthday. I've absolutely loved wearing these with so many outfits. I love them particularly with jeans or dresses to dress it up a little bit and being grey they're so versatile working with all denim colours and most dresses. What's better is that they're so comfortable! Normally stilettos are difficult for me to walk in but because they're a lower heel it's easier to walk in. I can tell they're going to be a favourite all year already ♥

This scarf was also a present but for Christmas. John's dad bought me this and I have worn it every cold day there has been since Christmas. It's so thick and fluffy and just the best winter scarf you could ask for. I've got a real big thing for grey at the moment so this sits well with most of my outfits at the moment. It's definitely my favourite scarf right now.

Next is my One Line A Day diary that I've consistently kept since the very first of January. I've absolutely loved writing in this at the end of each day and having to condense my one day into one or two simple sentences. It's a great way to look back at the week, month or year you've had and sum it up in the fewest words. I'm so glad I started off the year with this and I'm really looking forward to writing in it everyday for the next five years!

Another gift here and I have been using this at least once a week to create a fun and colourful look, specifically at the weekends. I adore my Urban Decay palettes and adding the Full Spectrum palette to my collection has made my collection much greater! My favourite colours in this palette are already Jones, Mean and Minx the most. I'd really like to review this palette at some point and share some of my favourite looks I've created. What do you think? Would you like to see that?

Last but not least, a set of Stabilo Fine Liner pens that I have been using everyday much like the other things in my favourites this month. I bought these in the Boxing Day sales after deciding that they were much nicer to write in for work. I love a fine liner pen and when I saw these on offer I just had to have them. They come in the most inconvenient but equally satisfying case - inconvenient because of the plastic covering but satisfying because you can pack them away so neatly and easily. It's a battle to decide whether I'll take them out of the case or not just yet but I've truly enjoyed using these pretty pens for almost everything.

So those are my favourites for the month! Let me know what you like the most from my favourites and share with me what your top five favourites are too ♥

I'm going to try and post more this month too. It's been a crazy one with assignments due in and everything under the sun going on but I'm hoping I can get back on track and catch up with things next week when I'm off work. All that said I can't make any promises, but the effort to try will be there!



  1. This is a great post! I really want to buy the One Line A Day journal because it looks like so much fun!

  2. I adore my Full Spectrum palette! It's definitely one I love to create wacky looks! I really like the line a day diary too her I don't think I'd be able to keep it up! There would be certain days I would forget, and lots that would just say 'being lazy', haha! Xox
