The last Favourites instalment of 2017 has come late but it is here! Not too many favourites for this month which I know is a bit strange because it’s supposed to be all festive and fancy but honestly, I was very au naturel throughout the month. I also didn’t try anything majorly new but I’ll be sure to have some new things to show you next month. 🙂

Feet is weird to talk about but let’s do it:
I know. How is it that I’m talking about a foot lotion on my blog? Why can’t I just use regular lotion for my feet? (Damn you marketing.) I bought LUSH Pink Peppermint Foot Lotion along with a foot mask at a time when my feet were really dry of which, if you have ever experienced this, it can be quite an uncomfortable experience and borderline-itchy too. That’s where the peppermint is kinda handy – because it counteracts that itchiness. The formula is pink too which is quite amusing. After just one application, I could feel the effects of the cream right away and though I don’t think I’d repurchase this in a heartbeat because price, it is worth having in the winter cupboard.
My current skin obsession with oats is not over yet:
I talked fondly of LUSH Dream Cream, and now I shall talk of its sister: LUSH Oaty Creamy Dreamy Shower Cream. It smells exactly like Dream Cream which is handy because I really love the scent! It really just smells of oats, in a friendly, warming, homely way. This is excellent if you don’t care for fancy scents in your shower. Speaking of – I am not someone who buys fancy products for the shower but I can make this one an exception. Unlike the Happy Hippy Shower Gel that I didn’t care for, the formula is entirely different: more creamy, easier to dispense and moisturising.
This will always be my go-to perfume:
You may be thinking…if this is my go-to perfume, then why am I only talking about it now? I stopped using perfume at some point for a while, and then I’m sure that throughout December, I revisited this old classic of mine everyday. It is the DIOR Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. Dior perfumes are generally quite citrusy and energising but nothing OTT. I’m over halfway through and although pricey, I’d buy another one! This just always stays on my skin and clothes – the lasting power is ridiculously good (I still smell it on my clothes the next day) and I just find that the perfume always lifts my mood up. 😀
It took a while to try but this is most certainly worth the hype!:
At some point, everyone talked about the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in ‘Light’ and finally, I got my hands on one a few months ago. I’m halfway through now and I have to say that I really, really like it. The colour is a good match – not too pink or orange which tends to be the problem for me with some concealers. The part where I think makes it special and consistently good is the sponge applicator. It just layers well on top of the skin where it can still breathe, and better yet, it doesn’t crease or cake which is a pet-peeve of mine.
Next, I will have to grab the Fit Me Concealer to try!
A rare gem in TV writing:
This is the last series that I finished in 2017, titled Because This Is my First Life. I wouldn’t exactly call it a romantic comedy…instead, I’d say it’s a really good slice-of-life drama. There were just so many good lines and references in the script – I thought it was incredibly well-written by someone who took to really experiencing life and wanted to give their perspective and other perspectives that people have in life through the characters. The primary theme is marriage – what is marriage?, what is a relationship? and so forth. It sounds deep but the way it is told is really lighthearted and relatable. I’d definitely recommend. 🙂
This feels like my shortest Favourites list in a while or is it just me? Please let me know what yours have been and I’d be sure to check them out! Have a great day. 🙂
