This won't be a 2012 favourites. I thought I would do my yearly favourites on my blog anniversary, it seems more appropriate. Plus it means I won't be adding to the massive amounts of favourites everyone is sharing right now! I do love it but it can be overwhelming!
So lets go for it!
This blush came in my December Glossybox and barely a day has gone past since then that I haven't worn it. I love it that much. It is just perfect for a natural flush that isn't over the top. The pigmentation is just right and it is super soft and blendable. Perfect.
I bought this watch in the summer, I've been looking for a smart watch that suited me and I liked for a long time. However, I hadn't really had an opportunity to wear it. My work watch gets dipped in all sorts of chemicals and the rest of the time I didn't want to wear it and lose it or whatever. When I went to Manchester I decided to finally wear this one. It is just so smart and yet also elegant.
Look I Want To Copy
I thought it would be interesting to share a look I want to copy. I spend a lot of time on the #fotd and #maccosmetics pages of Instagram getting inspiration. Along with following Vogue UK on various platforms. Between the two I find so many looks to copy. Often I will screenshot them so I have them saved on my phone and can do so. This one was posted by Vogue on their fb page. I adore the way the eyeshadows blend into each other a well as the colours used. As I didn't read the article that went with the photograph I cannot tell you who did the makeup etc, sorry.

Is it bad to rank your Christmas presents? I think subconsciously we all must. Obviously I loved them all and feel so lucky that I do get presents. Just some seem to mean more than others do. My favourite isn't my biggest or most expensive, it so rarely is. It isn't something I asked for and that's almost the best part. Sure, maybe a knitted polar bear hat isn't the most flattering or fashionable but I love it. My boy bought this for me, amongst a selection of beautiful and superbly well thought out gifts. Kind of shows how well he must know me :)
Anyway, enough soppiness for one day! I hope you enjoyed my slightly random selection of favourites this month.
