January Highlights

Well we’re already past January and into the second month of the year! Here are the things that I’ve been loving so far in 2018.


EyeWake Collagen Under-Eye Gel*

I have awful dark circles underneath my eyes and this gel has been an absolute game changer. I still use my Clinique cream at night but the EyeWake gel is perfect in the mornings as its so soothing and refreshing!

Ciglione Lash Booster Mascara

This is one of the most impressive products from the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar 2017. I don’t tend to try many new mascaras but I’ve fallen for this one, it really lengthens and makes my lashes look so much fuller.

My Brush Set – Oval Set* 

This set not only looks beautiful on my dresser, but its full of great applicators too! The bristles are so soft and the brushes come in perfect shapes, my favourite is the small thin brush which I’ve been using religiously to contour my nose! My Brush Set is a great brand and if you like the look of anything on their website then use code ‘IG15SOPH‘ for 15% off your whole order! You can thank me later…

Pretty Little Thing Trucker Jacket

If you follow me on Instagram or keep up to date with other blog posts, you’ll know that I am obsessed with this jacket. I’m not going to bore you with too much detail but if you want to know more about it then check out my last post ‘On Wednesdays We Wear Pink‘.

My Fitness Pal App

This year I really want to become happier with my body. Although I’m not overweight, I do want to lose a little and tone up so that I’m more confident. My Fitness Pal is a recent discovery and I’m already obsessed. You enter some details about yourself including your height, weight and goals and it helps you completely track what you’re eating. You can even use it to scan barcodes of branded goods which will bring up all nutritional content. This shows you how many calories you have left in the day, and what kind of thing you should be eating!

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and what you think of them!

    I love the My Fitness Pal app! It’s so handy to just scan an item or type it in. You don’t realise how bad some stuff is for you until you pop it in here, it’s definitely helped me to stop eating calorific foods! X

      Its so easy isn’t it! Its really helped me be more conscious of what I’m eating, if I reach for a ‘treat’ but I’ve already had one that day I see it there and stop myself! x

        Yes I’m the same! It’s good to know how much sugar is in something too. Also logging your macros! I aim for mostly green x
