Current favourites - Lifestyle

Hey Guys,

 I don't tend to do 'monthly favourites' posts I just wait a few months when there's enough new products I like, I don't really try as much new make up anymore or even consume enough art so these definitely happen less regularly.

Film - I've been watching so many films this month all for the first time (from Trainspotting to Casablanca) so I may do a big film post round up but the main one to talk about is La La land as I saw it twice in the cinema (which I've never done before) and am desperate to see it for a third time. I did talk about my love for it in more detail here

 Books - I am a pretty slow reader as it takes me a while to get into a book plus now with uni picking up I am reading books for research but I am hoping to fit in the time to finish 'The bell jar' soon. I was trying to be adventurous with the books I read (less YA romances and more classic literature) and was recommended the Bell Jar. So far I am loving it, I am finding her thoughts, analysis on culture in the 50s so interesting but still cant work out how much I like the protagonist character.

Beauty - Two new products I've discovered and loved recently are the Lo'real liquid highlighter which is a very cream blend which just gives the best highlight look I've found so far and I'm obsessed. Next is a piece of Skincare from Skintifique which are based in Paris. I've been using the cleanser P* micellar water to remove make up and help cleanse my skin in the evenings, because Skintifique is such a natural brand this product contains only 5 natural ingredients which means it works for all skin types. It has now replaced the Garnier micellar water I used to use.

Music - I've discovered quite a few new bands this month but the highlights has to be Prince in general, a week or so ago his music was finally released onto digital streaming, don't worry we own most of his music on CD back home but at uni I just use Apple music / spotify to listen to music. I have also watched the film Purple rain twice this last month which is a month so I've just been falling in love with Prince's music again this month. 

Fashion - My favourite combination this month have been my Zara shoes (more about them here) teamed with fishnets and my purple velvet trousers, fishnets have been everywhere this recently I am still loving it, fishnet socks with these shoes or tights under ripped jeans and dresses. 

Finally Lifestyle - This week we had Galentines day so me and three of my fave gals went to Rick Steins fish in Falmouth for food after uni, I received the cutest card from one of my gals and I just love Galentines, celebrating how lucky I am to have the best friends in my life and how happy we are being single together. 
Like the first month of every semester at uni its been full of some amazing nights out we just had temple of boom, 90s party and a 2016 dead celebs party (a night filled with Prince, Bowie and George Micheal, very emotional) which has just been awesome. 

Love Charlotte
