January Favourites

Hello! I am going to talk in this post about what I’ve been loving in January! Please tell me in the comments what you’ve been loving last month.

Side note: Go and follow my twitter: @HmellaBlog

So the first thing I have been loving in January is quite a classic thing but it is a weekly planner. I find it really useful and looks really nice on my desk. The only thing I would change about it is that I would add a Sunday and a Saturday because it is quite annoying when you want to write something down for the weekend and there isn’t a space for it. But I find the little notes and the tick it off quite useful and it was only £5 in the sale from boots.

The next thing I used a lot throughout January is the Burt’s Bees Deep pore scrub and the lemon cuticle cream. The scrub I like to use about every other day and my skin feels really refreshed after using it. The lemon cuticle cream is great because I have rough nil beds and this really helps smooth them out.

I started to read And then there were none near the end of January and I think it is fantastic! I really like reading Murder Mysteries and I am about 1/3 through it and I already love it. I was going to watch it after I read it but one f my friends said NO! Don’t I could barely watch it, it was so gruesome and scary. So I might not. Have any of you watched it? But the book is really good.

MURRAY MINTS! They are so delicious and this M and S ones are so good. They were only like 1 or 2 pounds. Amazing. That’s all I have to say.

Onto more beauty related things. I got this MUA Highlighter for Christmas and I LOVE IT. The pattern is really pretty but the colour and shimmer are really mice, not to overpowering but a nice little shimmer.

The US office is so good! I watched some of it a few years ago when I lived in the US, but I bought this of amazon and it is hilarious. Steve Carrell is sooooo funny. If you haven’t watched it I would Highly recommend it!


Well that’s the end to my January favourites, what did you guys love last month?



Lush Boxing Haul


I am sorry that this blog post is so late,   January and February just flew past and I have no clue where all the  days went!

On boxing day Lush have a bigsale where everything is 50% off; I have never bought anything from this sale before and I thought it would just be so busy and hectic if I went into the shop so at 9 AM I got up and joined the online line of some crazy amount like 30 000. Then I started checking Lush’s twitter waiting for updates. I don’t know quite how but I somehow joined the American lush so I got off the line to find everything in dollars. I also strangly had left the UK Lush tab open (and as you can imagine I was so happy about this). I still had to wait another hour or 2. Then after a couple hours of checking the website about every 5 minutes I finally saw the it said 1 minute to wait and I got online! And here is what I bought! (PS sorry for such a long rambly intro!)

First off is The Father Christmas bath bomb! I had never had this bath bomb before but I knew a few people who said it was amazing so I bought 2 of these. I have used one of them already (reviews for it will be coming soon) and it smells and looks amazing.


The next thing I bought was the Never Mind the Ballistics bath bomb. This was new this year and I thought it was really cool how half of it was a bath bomb and the other haf was I bath melt. It smells a bit like snow fairy bit not quite as sweet.


The next thing I bought was Shoot for the stars. This was also new this year (or I think it is). This is a vibrant blue colour and has three glittery stars (which are bath melts). It smells tangy and a bit like oranges.


The last bath bomb is Golden Wonder. This bath bomb has definitely been In Lush in previous years. I some how have managed never to pick this up so I was so excited to try it! It is a huge bath bomb and is glittery on the outside but blue on the indside.


The last thing I got was the igloo soap. I got this in the green colour and it smells divine, also a plus is that Lush soaps last for such a long time I will probably still have this in 2020!


Sorry again for such a late post, I can’t believe it’s march already!!


Maybe next year I can go into the shop and get more goodies!
