December 2011 Beauty Favourites

Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a fabulous new years eve, this is my first post for 2012, my December beauty favourites.

Urban Decay Naked Palette
       Tigi Bed Head Brunette Goddess Shampoo:
I bought this shampoo at the beginning of the year and loved it. It literally made my hair so shiny and I used most of the bottle. I think I stopped using it because I didn't want it to run out, but as I got some more shampoo for Christmas I need to make room. If you colour your hair I really recommend this shampoo, I will definitely be re-purchasing it in the future.

Aussie Miracle Colour Insurance Leave In Conditioner:
This is one of my all-time favourite leave in conditioners, I'm sure I've mentioned it in a few favourite posts before, but it's one I always come back to, I use it every time I wash my hair without fail. If you want soft hair try this bad boy.

Rituals Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel:
I've loved using this shower gel this month, it came in my December Glossybox and I'm obsessed, it makes me look forward to getting clean lol.

 Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shower Gel:
Another Amazing shower gel! I like to switch back and forth between this one and the one above as the scents are so different. I'm sure it will help me though the post Christmas funk.

 Jelly Belly Toasted Marshmallow Candle:
I completely blame Anna for this one lol, I was in mourning as my Yankee vanilla cupcake candle had just got down to the last dregs of wax when this little beauty was brought to my attention. It smells exactly like the vanilla cupcake one, yay. How cute is the packaging, it's adorable.

Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday Nail Polish:
It's like a party on your nails, need I say more. It's truly is an amazing polish, an investment but really worth it. I bought mine from ebay and it was around £12.

Urban Decay Naked Palette:
This probably comes as no surprise, these are the only eyeshadows I have used for the last month, maybe even longer. They are amazing quality and are the perfect colours for an neutral eye, which is strangely what I've been going for lately. I know the Naked 2 palette is out soon and most people are swooning over it and can't wait to get their hands on it, but I'm perfectly content using this one.

Let me know what you've been loving during the month of December and what you did for new years, I was totally un-rock and roll and watched Rise of the planet of the apes with my parents, which is a really good film by the way, especially watched on a 40inch tv in HD lol.

  1. Love the nail polish. Got so many glittery ones to justify buying another though. Jealous of your Naked palette too xx
