I have to say I’m really glad that January is officially over. It’s my least favourite month of the year and this year’s January was a big let down as well. I’m sure many of you feel the same about January. There is no money left after all the Christmas shopping, there is not much to look forward to, the weather is dreary and it’s still dark for the most part of the day.
However, there are always things that make me happy and here is a little list of them. Also, as I didn’t want to spend too much money, this month’s favourites are a mix of beauty and lifestyle.
In my last post, I reviewed Ere Perez Mascara that I’ve been using every single day and which I love. However, the only downside I found with it was its removal. It’s a pain to take it off. I’ve tried everything possible. Balms, oils, micellar water, you name it. Nothing seemed to be working. I still had to spend quite a while almost scrubbing it off my lashes. Then, sometime in December I was browsing through Content Beauty website and I stumbled across this Eye Make-Up Remover by Grown Alchemist. It claimed to remove waterproof make-up so I decided to give it a go and I am more than happy that I did. When it comes to removing Ere Perez mascara it works like a charm. I put some of it on cotton rounds, gently rub, and everything is gone! It removes all eye make-up in one go. I shall repurchase it once I run out.
Last, but definitely not least, most of my nights in January consisted of binge watching Being Human (U.K.). I don’t even know why I haven’t discovered it sooner. If you’re a fan of supernatural shows, you are going to love this one. Especially that it incorporates comedy elements too.
Basically, it’s a show about three twenty-something housemates trying to live a normal life whilst being a vampire, a ghost, and a werewolf. This trio is just fantastic, you just cannot not love them. The actors are spot on for these roles. Russell Tovey and Lenora Crichlow are just hilarious. Plus, the vampire is played by Aidan Turner. If you don’t know who that is, I urge you to go check now, you will not be disappointed #hotstuff.
Goodbye, January. You will not be missed.
