I absolutely love watching Favourites videos on Youtube, and I always seem to have a list of things that I’ve been loving myself, so I thought a quick blog post could be a way to share them!
I love the idea of a little space to share everything, from beauty to food! So these posts will be a real mix of all my favourites. Just know, if I discover something cool, it will be here!
Lush Cup o’ Coffee Face and Body Mask
I’ve been using this mask for around 3 years now and it has become an essential in my skincare routine.
It’s the only product I use to exfoliate my face (aside from The Ordinary AHA Peel) and I love using it in the mornings before I get into the shower!
You can either use it as a scrub and rinse off instantly, or keep it on for around 10 minutes and then scrub it off which is my preferred way of using it.
My skin is always left baby-soft and bright, no matter how tired I feel that morning!
I typically use this 2 times a week, on the same days I exfoliate my body.
You can buy a 150g pot for £9 or a 325g pot for £16 either in Lush stores or online.
Starbucks Eggnog Latte
Possibly my favourite Starbucks drink ever? And another product I have been using (or drinking) for many years now!
I am so happy when the Starbucks holiday drinks are out because it means the eggnog lattes are back on the menu!
If you love rich and creamy coffee, you will love the eggnog latte. Although, be warned that they are incredibly filling, so a grande is the largest size I get!
Regardless, they are incredibly addictive and delicious. I urge you to give one a try!
For the longest time I was never convinced on gilets, and would always just opt for a coat instead! That was, until I got a lovely down-filled gilet.
My gilet is the Loire Winter Gilet by the equestrian brand Le Mieux and it’s in a lovely mocha brown shade.
I wear it predominantly for my horse riding lessons or when on a walk, but I am sold on the flexibility it gives your arms when wearing!
Because it is down-filled, it keeps your body so warm and it has become a wardrobe essential for me.
The Five Minute Journal
After seeing glowing reviews on this journal from people such as Tim Ferriss, I decided to purchase my own and spend 5 minutes a day journalling.
This journal has made it onto my favourites because it is such a great way for beginners to start journalling!
What makes this journal excellent for beginners are the prompts already printed in the book, meaning you always have something to write about.
It takes a few minutes each morning and evening to fill in the journal, expressing things such as what you are grateful for that day, what could make the day great and then how the day could have been better.
I have found it outlines improvements to be made especially in the evening journalling, when you notice patterns on the “how could today have been better?” question.
For example, I noticed a common theme for myself was getting to bed earlier made me feel much better, so I have adapted my sleeping pattern to reflect this change.
You can find the journal on Amazon here, which is where I purchased mine from!
Olaplex No4 & No5
Last but not least are my new two favourites, my Olaplex haircare products.
I am admittedly one of those people who never really invested much in haircare. I would always stick to drugstore brands despite my stylist always advising me to invest in a better quality shampoo and conditioner!
After failing to find any haircare that really helped my hair, I finally invested in the Olaplex shampoo and conditioner and I am, honestly, beyond impressed.
Firstly, like many other expensive products, a little really does go a long way. I use around half the amount of shampoo and conditioner compared to drugstore brands!
Secondly, my hair looks far better, healthier and cleaner.
My hair type is fine, oily and I have a lot of it! So my issues were usually detangling, keeping oil at bay and not weighing it down too much.
After using the conditioner alone my hair became so much easier to brush through, and I rarely have tangles in my hair anymore.
My second-day hair is no longer so greasy that it has to be in a bun. It now looks nearly just as clean as the day I washed it, so I’m far more confident in wearing it down now!
So there you have it! My current Friday favourites!
Have you tried any of the above? What have you been loving recently? I would love to know!
Until Next time!
