It’s February already and I swear it feels as if I am still getting over the holidays. Is it me? Perhaps. I honestly didn’t realise I had been away from the world of blogging and social networks until a. I couldn’t remember my Twitter password and b. I couldn’t remember what size the photographs on my blog are. Major fail if you ask me.
On to happier things! I thought I’d share with you my favourites of the past couple of months. Yesterday I bought a new camera, and I’m so incredibly happy with it that I just want to go around and shoot everything. So at #1 on my favourites list is my new Nikon D90 with a 50 mm 1.4f lens. Heaven. It’s not featured in the photo, but I took the photograph with it. So that counts.
Since August of last year I’ve been using Philosophy Hope in a Jar non-stop. And my skin loves it. The smell takes a little getting used to, but other than that it seems to be working miracles on my skin. A little hope goes a long way …
My go-to scrub has been the St. Ives one. I like my scrubs to actually feel like they are, well, scrubbing. This one does -and – as an added bonus my skin feels super soft. Love.
I’m addicted to perfume. I have a ton of bottles and samples and I have two scents that I made myself. But for the first time ever I’ve been reaching for the same scent a couple of days in a row. It’s Donna by Trussardi. It has top notes of yuzu, lemon, and watery fruits, orange blossom, jasmine tea and lotus in the heart and white patchouli, cedar, sandalwood and vanilla in the base notes. A combination of fruit and wood are always good in my books!
Lastly, after seeing a number of reviews of the Real Techniques brushes I decided to try out a few of my own. My favourite so far is the blush brush – it looks and feels (as one would imagine) like a bunny’s tail. What’s perfect is that you can build up the colour without it being too visible.
