My January Favourites – 2015

I know it’s a little late, but personally I don’t know how you can create a favourites until the month is up! Especially as I discovered one of my favourites right toward the end of this month. So without any babel, here are the things I’ve been loving during the first month of 2015. DSC01594DSC01591 Excuse the grumpy face and zebra crossing on my head – I wasn’t too impressed with the state of our room and also the shocking light I’m subject to! My first favourite is this Karrimor running top. At only £4.99, this was a bargain. This is everything I want and love in a running top, a long body, tight but not enough to show rolls, breathable and bright. It ticks all of these boxes. Some tops I buy ride up when I run which is my biggest hate about fitness tops, but this one doesn’t! DSC01597 DSC01598 Keeping in the theme of fitness, I have loved these ear phones this month. I actually got them for my birthday last year but when I first tried to put them in my ears I didn’t like how massive they were so refused to wear them again. Big error. I watched a tutorial how to use them properly and they’ve been a dream since. I always have the problem with my earphones falling out of my ears, smacking my piercings and getting damaged by sweat but these are on another level. For any fitness fans – these are a must. DSC01590 DSC01589 A present from my Mumma and Pappa at Christmas, these hair curlers are unusual to say the least. I had seen hair tutorial from famous Youtuber’s testing these out and I’d always been cautious as a) my curls never stay in as I have fine thin hair, b) they look pretty lethal and c) they’re an expensive investment. So when I opened these at Christmas I was so excited to try them out! I can confirm they are incredible. My curls stayed in not only the whole date night, but after a run the following day too with minimal hair spray. My curls when I used to use my GHD’s would stay in for all of an hour and turn into scraggly waves but these are a god send. DSC01587 This book. I am loving. End of. DSC01601 I am addicted to these bars. They’re gluten, wheat and dairy free. I was sceptical at first as they look like dog treats to the eye, but they’re filling, tasty and good for you. I recommend these to anyone who wants to remove snacking from their diet as these are good snacks 🙂 They have a huge variety of flavours, however they are quite pricey! DSC01586 DSC01585 This head and shoulders shampoo I have been using for a few months now. I have really noticed to difference in the strength of my hair; it normally falls out at any given chance and is always in pretty bad condition but considering it’s winter, I’m outside a lot and I’ve not been taking care of my hair, this shampoo has saved my hair. It was actually my fiancé’s but I stole it when my usual shampoo run out. I really would recommend this when you want a quick hair salvage. The Dr. Organic Shampoo and Conditioner I only bought a week or so ago. My friend recommended them as they’re meant to be much better for the hair as they contain little chemicals and are a lot more natural than brands such as Herbal Essences. On my first use, I used the Shampoo twice as I didn’t feel my hair was clean enough and also the colour and smell put me off. However, after a few uses my hair looks more shiney and ‘salonesque’ – if that’s even a word? I probably should have kept this for a February favourite as these may not grow on me too much but at first use, they’re a good switch from my regular shampoo and conditioners. DSC01599 I’ve wanted this box set for ages as I don’t have Sky so I can never watch re-runs and when I was younger and at home I’d always feel super awkward watching it infront of my rents! I received this for Christmas and as I’ve now been ill twice since, this has been a life saver. I have also worked out I can watch this in German and many other languages, which basically counts as revision, right? I spent 12 hours watching back to back episodes in German and my mind felt fried but I couldn’t turn it off – problems! It doesn’t advertise that it has not only subtitles but audio options in different languages so if anyone wants some easy watching in different languages, please buy! So these have been a random collection of things I’ve been loving in January. There hasn’t been much else I’m afraid as most of my January has been filled with running, eating and being ill! Let me know if you guys have tried any of the items mentioned above or any favourites you had in January which you’ll think I’ll like. XX
