Most loved January
Updated: Mar 31
I hope you had a lovely weekend all...
January is almost gone (yayyyyyyy!!!!!) and I wanted to share with you a selection of my random favourite items of the month from what I bought, what is on my wish list and what I tried!
I don't have a garden, I don't have time and I don't have much patience in general. Succulents are lovely and they don't require the green thumb. This is the book I needed to take care of my babies.
- Leon fast vegan at 0,99 Kindle edition:
I was browsing for my next evening novel when I saw this deal. I am always looking for inspiring recipes without meat or fish and this is the perfect way to improve my vegan dishes. I have already tried some of the vegan alternative from them as I have one near the store and I was impressed. Can't wait to cook one on my own!
-Vampire diaries on Netflix:
I am a big Twilight saga fan and I don't know how I could miss this before. My days off are made of this + bed +snacks and all of a sudden I am a teenager again (I wish!)
Typical Christmas snack in London, it is actually one of my favourite all year round. Last year I basically threatened the guy of the corner shop near home that I would never shopped there again if he didn't have supplied the store for the whole year. Amazing alternative to crisps as they are lower in calories but great in taste!
-Caramel penguins from Hotel chocolat:
I know, it is not Christmas anymore I should eat only raw carrots if I want to go back to my previous size but I could die for these: they are so addictive! These are the most decadent (and cute) treat ever and they made my period less awful.
I recently saw it on Instagram and I was very curious to see it as I already had the quartz roller and I love it. I checked the difference between them: apparently the roller is more specific for puffiness as it helps with the lymphatic drainage massage, while Gua Sha is a fascial release massage. The roller is more delicate and it takes less manual skills whilst the Gua Sha needs your skin to be well oiled and it also takes longer, as it is supposed to be mainly a relax tool and it could be used also on neck and shoulders.
They can be made of quartz or jade and I actually prefer the quartz because it is a cooler stone and that helps to reduce dark circles more compared to the jade.
I need both in my life thank you!
- Bright jumper:
I don't have fever, I swear. Yes, I am wearing a lemon yellow jumper from Oliver Bonas and despite my initial reaction when I saw it on the rails, I do like it, and I do like this colour on me. I am actually really thinking of buying it. It will jazz up my vast collection of neutral basics f0r once! Great with a simple pair of jeans, I think it will be also cute with my black satin midi skirt!
-H&M premium quality:
I am obsessed! Quality timeless pieces in neutral colours at reasonable prices. Dream came true!
This is a screen shot of my top 3 items: prefect items for the winter, amazing also for the transitional weather in spring. I don't know for how long I will hold on...
-"Don't start now " by Dua Lipa:
I fell in love with her voice since "The one" and I like all of her songs, so obviously this is my fav hit of the month!
-Sally Hansen powder room nail polish:
Got is as a secret santa and I adore it! It last longer than my old nude nail polish and it looks super chic...My new favourite nude with a pearl finish that goes really well with my usual ring!
I recently started to add a couple of drops of this in my home-made all purpose detergent and the house smells incredible! It is cheap yet effective, and the range of scents is huge! Love, love love!
Well, this is it, I hope you enjoyed the post and thank you for reading it!
Stay tuned, on Friday I will post a new recipe.
Have a good weekend all!
