January was such an odd month for me, I am in my last semester of university, I am a bit scared for what is afoot next year but excited. It was also a month where finding motivation (oddly enough) to run has been a bit lacking, but that is all part of the running journey! Despite my lack of motivation, I have discovered and rediscovered some great stuff!
First I discovered a new favourite legging. The Gymshark fit legging. Okay maybe not favourite but I have to be honest, when it comes to the gym I wear my lululemon aligns or fast and free crops 90% of the time. But, when I received these last month I started wearing them and they are great! Not as flattering as the aligns, but it’s exciting to find a brand that has leggings that ARE FLATTERING and fit, as well have great material. Stay tuned for a post about workout and running leggings!
My mineral fusion lip tints. These have been so nice to use when I want some colour but don’t want the fuss. when I need a red lip but don’t want to fuss these are great.
The Body Shop Drops Pure Translucency Essence Lotion. In December I bought this because i wanted to add more hydration to my routine. This is a great addition of hydration to my routine. I layer this one after my toner and before my serum.
My DIY facial oil. This bad boy is made out of argan oil, lavender essential oil, tea tree essential oil and lemon essential oil and I really love it. I would like to try rosehip oil as my carrier oil next time as i make it cause that one is a bit more hydrating. BUT this keeps my spots at bay and hydrates my skin.
My crossroads candle in cranberry muffin. This was something that my best friend convinced me to buy. I have been guilty of loving bath and body works candles but they don’t last long at all and this is something that really bothers me. This candle smells natural, it’s a clean candle (meaning it burns clean into the air) and smells like fresh baking AND it burns so slowly which means it is worth the price.
What did you like and do in January?
