Winter Favourites 2012-13

01. Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation   02. Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme Eau De Parfum   03. Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask   04. iPad Mini 32GB Wifi & Cellular    05. Steam Cream   06. Essie Beyond Cozy   07. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

So Winter is drawing to a close again (apparently, though I doubt it) and this year I decided to keep a running list of all the things I was loving throughout the colder months. These are the items is longed for when my skin was dry, when I wanted to shake up my daily makeup or when I just wanted a pick me up.

01. I love this foundation! If I'm going out or just want a totally flawless base this is what I'll grab, It has a lovely texture and is very smooth and easy to apply (I use my Real Techniques Buffing brush to apply it). It has a medium-full coverage but doesn't leave the skin feeling caked - it can be applied sparingly which looks really lovely too.

02. This perfume is my favourite evening fragrance, its so deep and sweet but not sickly. It has notes of marshmallow, raspberry and vanilla - delicious! I'm terrible at describing scents but all I can say is that so many people asked me what I was wearing when I had this on.

03. If you look in my bathroom, you will see countless Origins products all used and loved. Out of all of my skincare products the Drink Up Intensive mask is my absolute holy grail item for when my skin is dry and dehydrated.

04. One of my favourite birthday presents of all time, I got this for my 18th birthday in November and have been attached to it ever since. It's so handy for watching Youtube videos, surfing social media and watching catch up television. Love love love!

05. I've gone through loads of Steam Cream since I got it for Christmas, I love it so much. It smells so natural and makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated. It's very reasonably priced too!

06. Beyond Cozy is one of the prettiest nail polishes I've ever come across, it's a beautiful silver colour with just a hint of gold. I loved wearing it throughout winter and I'm also looking forward to wearing it in the summer with Essie's Mint Candy Apple or Peach Daiquiri.

07. After owning both the Naked palettes I've come to the conclusion that 2 is the best for me. The colours are slightly more cool toned which suits my skin tone better (although there are a few warm toned colours in there too). I use this palette pretty much everyday, the shades are so wearable and blend together very well. Good all round product in my opinion!
