A fitting end to Summer, with my February favourites all bright and shiny and fresh. I used these products consistently throughout the month of February, and now I’m ready for the cooler months to start settling in so I can dig out my favourite Autumn/Winter products. My favourites in February were: Bath + Body Works Aruba Coconut Body Lotion, MAC Face & Body Foundation in N1, MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study, Bloom Nail Polish in Flamingo Sands & CO Bigelow Blueberry Rose Salve.

December is always a busy month, what with me being COMPLETELY F*CKING OBSESSED WITH CHRISTMAS and all. I love Christmas, just ask anyone in my life and they will no doubt regale you with tales of how I baked them cookies and made them listen to that one Bing Crosby Christmas album three thousand times. Due to me being so busy with Christmas, I tend to keep things in my routine pretty simple and use less of a variety when it comes to beauty products than I normally would. My most reached for products in December were: Bath + Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion (I use this exclusively in December so now it will always remind me of Christmas… perfect), Muppets for OPI ‘Gettin Miss Piggy With It’ Polish (this makes for a great Christmas nail when layered over OPI Red), Bloom Lip Gloss in Shine, MAC Eyeshadow in Orb & Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso aka the most perfect blush to exist, ever.

I’m a little bit late with my favourites this month, but late is better than never right? (right.) My most reached for products in the month of October were: Bath + Body Works Exotic Coconut Body Splash, Face of Australia Pressed Powder in Bronze, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Siren & Essie Nail Polish in Pink Parka.

As I seem to have a bit of trouble sticking to and completing a Project 10 Pan, I’ve decided to take a different approach. I am now attempting to either finish up 3 products and buy 1, or finish up 6 products and buy 3. This is my first tally with a Bath + Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Foaming Hand Soap, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Body Oil and Flourish Bath & Body Almond Milk Perfume Oil finished and a St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Body Lotion purchased.

The Aussie dollar has been performing like a champion lately, and I know a lot of my fellow beauty bloggers have been taking advantage of the strong exchange rate and doing a bit of online shopping. I am no exception, and have placed a few orders at MAC, Bath + Body Works and Sephora (the elusive Urban Decay Naked Palette shall be mine at last!). Pictured above are my most recent beauty acquisitions: Bath + Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Shower Gel & Triple Moisture Body Cream, Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment, Barrier Repair and Sheer Tint Redness Relief (all sent for consideration for review), MAC Eyeshadow in Phloof, Eyeshadow in Orb, Softsparkle Eye Pencil in Iris Accents and Mineralize Blush in Buddy Up, Benefit Cha Cha Tint (sent for review), Bobbi Brown Lipgloss in Hot Pink, Co Bigelow Apple Rose Salve, Co Bigelow Blueberry Rose Salve, Liplicious Signature Vanilla Berry Tasty Lipgloss, Liplicious Pineapple Juice Tasty Lipgloss and Co Bigelow Organics Strawberries & Cream Moisturizing Lip Shine.
