January Favourites

It's that time again! Time for you to all find out what I've been loving this month - there's quite a bit...

#1 Pretty Little Liars
Netflix has recently updated all their films and TV shows, which is great because they now have a good selection of things to watch. 
I'd heard a lot about Pretty Little Liars and had been wanting to see it for ages, so I was thrilled to find that it had been put on the UK Netflix.
I know I'm so late to the craze, but I have just finished season 1 and it's really, really addictive - I love, love, love it! So far it's about four old friends who are trying to uncover the truth about their dead friend Alison. I'm not going to go into detail or give any spoilers, but there are twists and turns throughout the show, and it's just so gripping. No spoilers in the comments!

#2 Maybelline Baby Skin
Just like Pretty Little Liars, I am late to jump on the bandwagon; this product has been raved and raved about in the blogger/vlogger world ever since it came out. I am so happy to finally have bought it just after the New Year, as I can definitely see what all the hype is about.
Baby Skin is described as an 'Instant Pore Eraser', a 'lightweight primer for smooth, poreless looking skin'. It's a clear gel-like formula and feels so hydrating and softening on the skin. It may feel greasy at first, but then it sinks in, leaving a smooth, matte finish.
I never used to use a primer, but now I am so glad I started using this - my makeup lasts longer with it and applies more evenly and effortlessly. I like to apply this product around my nose and towards my cheeks as they are where my pores are biggest.

#3 Clementine Oranges
Ok so this is a bit of a weird one I know, but this month I have just really, really liked them. I tend to go through phases with oranges - one month I hate them and they taste weird and the white pith is revolting, the next I love them because they're tangy and sweet and refreshing. Does anyone else go through fruit phases?

#4 Maybelline Electro Baby Lips in Berry Bomb
Sticking with the Maybelline Baby range, I have used this lip balm almost every day this month. My sister bought it for me for Christmas; she loves my Baby Lips just as much as I do. Berry Bomb is the first I've had from the Electro range - in the tube it's bright purple in colour but when you apply it to your lips it's pretty much sheer with a slight hint of purple depending on how much you build it. The smell is amazing as the name would suggest, and overall it is a good, nourishing balm.

#5 Fat Face Body Mist
I can't get enough of the smell of this product! It smells kind of like one of those softening liquid moisturisers, which sounds disgusting but it's so nice. I don't really know how to describe the smell, but trust me on this one - it's sooo good. I have worn it so much this month and I'm sure I will continue to in February.

#6 Girl Online
I won't talk about this book too much now as it will be featured in my Bookworm Wednesday in three days time, but it definitely has earned a place in my favourites this month. I am a big Zoe fan, and had been wanting to read her book since she first announced it last summer. I love love loved it!

#7 Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
This featured in my Small January Beauty Haul and Reviews blogpost a couple of weeks ago. I loved it after only a couple of uses then and I have continued to enjoy it a month later; I have used it every day! I don't want to repeat myself as my January Haul is still quite recent, so if you want to know anymore about this foundation, head on over to my blog archive.

#8 Pinterest
I have been using this site as I have changed a couple of things around in my room and Pinterest is the place for inspiration and more. If you want to follow me to see what I've been pinning, I have changed my username to 'rosalynalice'.

#9 Soap & Glory Archery
You're probably not surprised this is featured in my favourites after how much I went on about it in my January Haul - I can't talk about this product highly enough. It will basically transform your brows so naturally with the wax and pen and just leave them so perfectly shaped and defined. I just can't get enough of it! Get your hands on this if you can; I now swear by it, and am never ever going back to using a powder or pencil. Ever.

#10 Songs!
These have all been replayed on youtube about a million times:
'Uptown Funk' by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars - if you haven't heard this, I don't know where you've been.
'Up' by Olly Murs and Demi Lovato - again, it's been high in the charts lately and it's very catchy.
'Like I Can' by Sam Smith - I just really, really, really love it.

Let me know what in the comments you've been loving this month :)
