December Favourites

Kerastase Bain Satin
As you will know if you are a regular reader, I am a tad obsessed with haircare! I purchased this shampoo as part of a recent Feel Unique haul to try to tame my damaged hair after too much bleaching. Initially I was unsure about it - it's pretty expensive and I didn't take to the scent immediately but now it's my favourite shampoo. I always thought that conditioner made the most difference to my hair and that shampoo was just incidental but having tested this thoroughly I can assure you that it's the best shampoo I've ever tried. It really softens my hair and helps to smooth down the damaged bits, making it look healthier and shinier

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme
Another new weapon in my haircare arsenal, I use this before washing and using a masque. Far better than the original version, which gave me no noticeable benefits, this really seems to have strengthened my hair and helps to detangle it. I am really pleased with the results and will definitely repurchase

Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Buttercream
I picked this up as part of a Boots 3 for 2 offer and I love it, it smells so creamy and sweet (a bit sickly if you're not into that sort of thing) It contains five different oils so is really nourishing, especially on my dry legs and elbows

Lush Bubblegum lip scrub
A gorgeous smelling (and tasting) scrub for dry winter lips - I'm a bit late to jump on this bandwagon but this little pot of goodness will never be out of stock in my bathroom from now on. It's the perfect consistency to leave lips soft (but not sore) and ready to slather in your favourite lip balm

Honey Flavoured Jack Daniels
Jack Daniels is one of my most favourite drinks in the world so I was really excited to try this festive honey flavoured version and it's just as delicious as I imagined. Mix with Diet Coke and ice and have yourself a very happy evening!

My new iPad
I spent a long time umming and aahing over whether to get an iPad - whether I needed one, whether to get the mini version, whether to just forget the idea of a tablet and go straight for a MacBook to replace my failing laptop. I suppose the answer is that no one needs one but they are good fun, make internet browsing quick and easy and being able to watch whatever film I want, whenever I want (thanks to my existing LoveFilm subscription) has been a revelation. So yes, I love it!

Snugg iPad cover
I wanted a case to protect my new baby, one that would also serve as a stand, make it easier for me to hold for long periods (when watching a film for example) and switch it on and off automatically. This one serves the purpose perfectly and comes in a range of colours. Not only that but I ordered it at 4.30pm on 27th December and it arrived before 10am the next day. And that was free delivery! What more could you ask for?

What were your favourite things this month?


  1. I so nearly bought the Elasticizer yesterday! It was in M&S and I had a voucher which meant it would have only been £7.50. It was the one for porous hair, which I most certainly do have, but the thought of sitting around with it on my hair for 10-20 minutes just wasn't for me. I like to be quick with my hair washing! I bet I'll regret that decision soon... x

  2. Love the lush bubblegum scrub and ofkos can't do with out an iPad...though it may not fully replace a laptop, it's unique in its own way...

  3. I love the bubblegum lip scrub but mine an out this month, was so disappointing x

  4. I keep meaning to buy a lip scrub but just have never gotten round to it! Think I need o up my game!

  5. Happy New Year mrs! Hope 2013's a good one for you. I bought Neil an ipad for Christmas, it's gone down a treat, so much so that I may need to hide it from him so that we can still talk from time to time :-) xx

  6. I got some Kerastase goodies for Christmas, and I must say I absolutely love it! It is by far the best shampoo I've used, it has really made a difference. Definitely worth the pricey price tag! Well, if it's good enough for Kate Middleton's luscious locks....

  7. Great post, I love my iPad too!

  8. You got me hooked on hayday! I knew this would happen!! Defs gonna try the extreme elasiticizer, but the normal one has done me good. Happy New Year gorgeous one xxx
