December was a strange month. My beloved Samsung S5 ended up in the evil clutches of a very unlikable taxi driver who decided to keep it..The cheek! Being without a phone for two weeks was annoying but kind of fun because it taught me to look around a little and do other things like read one of my many books gathering dust or draw! I’ve de – cluttered my life a little AND.. I now share my home with a puppy!! He’s not actually my puppy, he’s my house mates but he’s now part of our little house family and it’s amazing. Waking up to tiny poops most days isn’t so bad When you have this adorable little face peering back at you. He’s rather handsome and very friendly, He’s still trying to get used to his ridiculously long legs and his farts are diabolical.
A few of my favourite things this month –
Dr Organic Rose Otto range – This range contains skin calming extracts of rosehip oil, aloe vera juice and chamomile. I don’t even feel bad about slathering my face in it because it’s paraben free and smells so lovely. The oil leaves my skin feeling plump and soft to the touch, I use the oil on my face, neck and chest, only at bedtime though to avoid daytime shiny face. This range is good for the winter months when your skin is feeling a little dry, dull and in need of a boost.
Pact Coffee – Coffee makes me so happy. It’s a daily ritual for me that never get’s old, I love the taste and even more so the smell of coffee, all the different variations you can have. Don’t get me wrong, tea can hold it’s own but coffee is on a whole other level. To be honest that’s probably just the addiction talking. Have you heard of Pact? It’s a high quality tailored coffee company. User friendly website, easy to navigate around and works out less than 1/4 of your weekly Starbucks spend. Check them out www.pactcoffee.com This one I had left me with the jitters and as I have 3 cups…eek! Don’t have that much.
Bimuno Immunaid – These convenient vitamin C chews work in your gut to help increase the good bacteria which in turn fight off any nasties, great for the colder months. I’ve taken them for a month now and no winter cold so far! They also helped with the old Christmas bloating. You can get them here www.bimuno.com
I recently watched Northern Soul and fell in love with the soundtrack. It had me dancing around my room following dance tutorials on youtube, finger clicking, side steppin good!
Luther – The cold weather means it’s acceptable to stay in all cosy watching ridiculous amounts of Netflix. Luther has blown my mind, the suspense and of course the gorgeous Idras. Our Luther has pretty much the worst luck in life and his stress levels must be insane! I just want to make him a nice supper, put him to bed all cosy and stroke his head while he falls to sleep. I really enjoyed watching Luther and Ripleys relationship, everyone needs a Ripley in their life. One thing that remained in my mind though was…I wonder what Luthers grey/brown coat smells of? He wears that thing day and night, sleeping, running around, killing people, kicking up a right sweat. Watch and you will see what I mean..
And some un-favourites…
The hipster beard…
And that dollop (under cut topknot) hair that goes like this..
I’m all for individuality and when I first spotted this hairstyle out and about I found it quite tribal and a bit sexy but now everyone has it, even they have no idea why they have it but still it remains. The hipster beard is a definite substitute for a lack of personality and is getting bigger and longer by the day, so long that there’s a new breed of neckless man wandering around. I think mens necks are a beautiful thing and I miss them so.
