My Current Favourites [books & more!]

Here are my favourites from this month- that includes books and other stuff too!

If I received any of the below products in exchange for an honest review I’ll mark it with a *- but rest assured everything here is a firm favourite, however I got it!

Favourite Books:
Bone By Bone – Sanjida Kay*: I loved this book! So full of suspense but also so relatable- I could imagine how I’d feel in both Laura and Autumn’s positions (well, try to imagine anyway!) and it really sucked me in. I couldn’t put it down! My review here.

The Girl in the Ice – Robert Bryndza*: this had the perfect blend of police procedures, ‘whodunnit’ and action. The characters made me want to read more and the police investigation was interesting to read about- overall, I just felt that this was a fantastic start to a great new series that I’d like to read more of. Here’s my review.

No Longer Safe – A.J. Waines*: I really enjoyed Dark Place to Hide, by the same author, and this was another great read- action-packed, riveting and entertaining! Read my review.

Favourite Beauty:
Bourjois Poudre de Riz
– this is a really nice, very finely milled face powder. It’s got a nice pale pinky colour and leaves an irridescent glow on the skin. I use it all over my face and in spots where I’d like to set my makeup (ie. on my under-eye concealer)

Topshop Cream Blush in Afternoon Tea – this leaves my cheeks with a rosy glow and looks really flattering. I dab it on with my fingers and blend it in, and sometimes use a brush to give it a bit of extra blending, if necessary!

Avon Make Up Setting Spray this is a great alternative to the more expensive setting sprays; giving my face a good mist of this means my makeup stays on a lot longer!

Gucci Bamboo
– my favourite fragrance ever. It’s not the cheapest but it’s so worth it for this smell. It’s one of those scents that anyone who has tried it has really loved it, man or woman, whatever age! It’s a soft, floral and woody scent that’s just lovely 🙂

Favourite Films & TV:
I haven’t seen a huge number of films in the last month or so, sadly; I did however watch Birdman starring Michael Keaton. It might not be a film everyone will enjoy as it’s quite strange and quirky, but I really enjoyed it.

I’m also watching and really enjoying the second series of Happy Valley– a great British drama- and re-watching episodes of Modern Family, my favourite US sitcom in years!

Fashion Favourites: 
Picked up this purse, card holder and earrings from River Island recently and I LOVE them, particularly the purse! I love all the clashing colours 🙂 I also went to a vintage fair a few weeks ago and picked up this amazing necklace, by Electric Eccentricity Jewellery!


Iphone Screen ProtectorRandom Favourites:
Iphone 5S tempered glass screen protector*: this is by far the best screen protector for my phone I’ve ever tried. I’ve had loads in the past which were cheap and rubbish but this one makes my phone look like a brand new device. The screen looks SO shiny and glossy but it does such a great job of protecting it from scratches and dirty. I am so impressed.

Kit Kat Cookies and Cream– my friend bought someof this which was the first time I’d tried it- it’s so tasty! It’s super sweet and sugary, of course, and no doubt really bad for you but I am addicted to it!
