New Year Favourites

New Year Favourites
Its probably a bit early to do a favourites post but I have so many things that I am loving at the moment so I thought I would share them with you. A few of these bits I received for Christmas and I mean I can’t stop using them so why not share them with you lovelies so that you can go and try these bits for yourself. 
As you know I’m more of a fashion blogger but I have found so many beauty bits which I can’t stop using at the moment so I guess we’ll start with those…
Benefit Hoola Bronzer 
Soooo I have only just discovered how amazing this bronzer is despite the fact the both my sister and one of my best friends uses it religiously. I really should have worked out sooner that this is an amazing product but no I’m slow on the band wagon with this one. To be honest I was little worried about ever trying it as I am the palest human going so bronzers that are too dark make me look dirty which really isn’t a look I ever want to go for. I have to admit when I first used this, I didn’t quite realise how pigmented it was going to be and sat there for a good 5 mins with a clean brush trying to blend it into my face so that I didn’t look like I had 2 brown lines down the sides of my face. Safe to say I now know how to use it and not to use too much. I am loving it and have been using it everyday since I got it. Benefit is quickly becoming one of my favourite make up brands. If you’ve never tried this one, I would highly recommend. Definitely worth the price tag.
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
This is another one of those products which I should have 100% tried sooner. Spending money on foundation isn’t really something I like doing as often the ones you can get at a drugstore are just as good. My friend mentioned that is amazing and I trust her opinion so I thought I’d try it out. I went for the lightest shade as I am pretty pale. It wasn’t the best choice of colour as its a tad yellow for my complexion. It still works and matches my face fine so it wasn’t a total fail. I have been mixing the foundation with a cheaper one which I always use and it has made the perfect combination. I am loving this foundation, it gives great coverage as well as giving that perfect glow. 
Gucci Bamboo Perfume and Roller Ball
Gucci Bamboo Gift set – Buy Here
Before Christmas I got sent the Gucci Bamboo gift set and I hoped that I would love the scent but didn’t really think that I would fall in love with it and wear it all day everyday. I have used so much of it already and it smells divine. Im not going to attempt to describe the smell because I don’t know one thing about describing perfume smells but one thing I do know, it smells great. The gift set comes with this amazing roller ball which lives in my bag and is great for those moments when you realise that you don’t smell so fab and you need something to make you feel lie a goddess again. The set is great as you can have the perfume with you wherever you go and I love that. It means I can constantly smell like Gucci and I am lusting after all things Gucci at the moment!
So thats the beauty bits I am loving, I highly recommend every one of them. The next bits are totally random so enjoy..
Aimee Song Capture Your Style Book
If you’re a fan of Instagram or blogging you will have probably heard of this book already and know of its amazingness but for those of you who haven’t. Go buy it. It tells you everything you need to know about upping your Instagame and making your Instagram more exciting. I am trying to make mine more interesting but Boy does it take a lot of hard work. I can’t really explain how amazing the book is as you just have to read it yourself but its a great one. 
Levi Mile High Skinny Jeans
I have wanted to try Levi jeans for the longest time but never really wanted to spend the money on them. I saw that these particular jeans in this colour were on sale and I couldn’t say no. They’re basically exactly what I want in a pair of jeans. I have heard that they fade easily and stretch etc but so do Topshop jeans and they last ages so I guess we’ll have to see about that one. They are incredibly long though so I did actually have to cut them shorter as there was no way I was ever going to wear them. Apart from that I am loving them and I can’t wait to wear them more. They’re very similar to the Topshop ones but different. I will let you know how I get on with these.
Olympus Pen Pancake Lens
After having my Olympus pen for about a year, I felt it was time to add something new to the mix. This lens I got for christmas and I love it. The pancake lens is amazing and creates the best close up blurred background shots and I am loving them. If you’ve got an Olympus pen you need this lens. You need it!
