Aside from the nail polish that I literally wore throughout the entire month of March, I really struggled to find products that I would consider favourites. March, as it seems, was as blah as always. Nevertheless I managed to rustle up a few of my most-used products for the month, and they were: Flourish Bath & Body Almond Milk Body Lotion, OPI for Sephora Metro Chic Nail Polish, Flourish Bath & Body Brown Sugar Perfume Oil, Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner & Davroe Lemon Grass Detangler.
I’ve literally had this colour on my nails non-stop since the beginning of March. My grandmother brought it back from me after her trip to the USA last year, and I’ve only just opened up the bottle as it’s the start of Autumn and time to start wearing these sorts of shades. This is pretty much the perfect mushroom purple/grey colour, so if you’re lucky enough to live in the US or are able to get someone to ship it to you – I suggest doing so ASAP!
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.
Ahh, farewell to August. I am already in a Spring state of mind and looking forward to the warmer weather, though I know that feeling will pass as soon as we have our first 40 degree day. My favourite products throughout the month of August were as follows: NP Set Calming Pre-Foundation Primer, OPI Bubble Bath Polish, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Coral Berry, Lanolips Lip Ointment in Sunshine and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser.
Recently one of the Australian sale websites (either OzSale or BrandsExclusive, I can’t quite remember) had a sale on OPI nail polishes and my co-worker and I decided to shop up a storm. They had an amazing selection of colours available and I went a little bit silly. After flipping out and adding pretty much every colour to my shopping cart I ended up culling down my list to the following shades: Koala Bear-y, Bubble Bath, I’m Not Really A Waitress, Big Apple Red, Russian Navy and Lucerne-tainly Look Marvellous. And now I think I’m pretty much set for nail polishes for the rest of the year. (Until Summer comes around and I decide that I want some fluro nails, of course.)
