MONTHLY FAVOURITES: DECEMBER 2014



And so we have the final 'monthly favourites' instalment of 2014, You can look back over February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October and November's editions by clicking on the months, I have no idea where January's offering is, perhaps I was just too carried away talking about Cielo Blanco restaurant in Leeds.

The Hair: I have been giving a new hairdryer a road test this month, one with diamonds encrusted into its technology. The Nicky Clarke 'Diamond Shine*' hairdryer has offered me sleek and shiny locks with its frizz fighting ions and although it gives you an arm workout to hold it, I love the diamante encrusted shell for a bit of bling.

The Tan: For some strange reason fake tans struggle to blend into my skin, resulting in one day of beautiful tan and then in a flash it's disappeared. Before I splurged on the full size Xen Tan 'Dark Lotion' I wanted to see how I got along with a sample size of the product. I apply the cherry bakewell scented product to freshly exfoliated and moisturised skin, the gel like formula isn't drying and unlike other fake tans you are able to get on with your day without a biscuity developing scent occurring. 

The Lips: I always treat myself to a Mac lippy whenever I head off on my travels and in light of my trip to Amsterdam last month I bought 'Fresh Moroccan' a beautiful brown toned red with plenty of gold shimmer. The frost finish formula is super moisturising and perfect for the winter season when the cold air and central heating chap your lips.

The Nails: I just had to mention the colour chameleon nail polishes by Hema Cosmetics, the shade I have is 'Copper Chameleon' which is a beautiful spilled petrol mix of green and copper, the perfect dupe for Topshop's 'Hidden Treasure.' 

The Skincare: With all of the festive parties that I have been lucky enough to attend and the excessive amount of glitter I have been wearing has taken its toll on my skin this month. I love the Clarins 'Beauty flash balm' a radiating glow boosting moisturiser that also works as a fantastic primer. 

The Eyes: My love for the Kate Moss 'Eye Rock' mascara grows everytime I use it, the 'broken heart' shaped wand lets you dig deep into the root of the lash to give crazy volumized lashes. The formula isn't too wet or too flaky and well, if it's good enough for Kate.
