After finally scraping off the last of glitter polish that was well and truly glued to my nails over the festive period I was looking to wear something a little brighter on my nails to surpass the cold and miserable winter. I recently picked up a Essie polish in the shade Avenue Maintain which is such a beautiful light blue shade. Its different to anything I own, it’s darker than your sky or pastel blue shade and lighter than a bold cobalt hue. The Essie formulas are perfect and apply thickly so one coat is all that is needed.
Can you believe we have reached the end of January already *gasps* time always goes so fast! Anyway before I get stuck in to this months favorites, exciting announcement…*drumroll* Today marks this blog’s 5th anniversary!! How crazy, 5 years of blogging wow. Thank you to every one of you who reads my blog and makes it seem like I am not talking to myself all the time haha, Thank you all so much 🙂 Heres to another 5 years, right!? 😉 Anyway back to the favourites, this month has been quite unusual as I pretty much didn’t leave the house for the whole month and never really wore makeup. You can probably tell from the chilled out vibe image above which doesn’t really resemble the usual monthly favourites shebang but hey ho.
Adidas Maroon Gazelles – I have had my eye on these beauties for a long while and finally picked them up during the month. I got them from ASOS where they were on sale for a decent £52. I love a bit of maroon, it works so well with my wardrobe and I am totally loving the camel coat and trainers combo.
Friends – Do I even need to talk about how good Friends is? I am sure like pretty much everyone, their Gran and dog has watched every episode of friends and during my time off I decided to go for the full on 10 season marathon. I don’t think I have ever laughed so much at a TV series, nothing beats Friends, ever.
Looking For Alaska – For Christmas I got a selection of the John Green books after falling in love with his writing while reading The Fault in Our Stars. I have started reading Looking For Alaska which is about a boy who moves to a boarding school and falls for a girl named Alaska. I haven’t finished this book yet but I am loving it so far and John Green is just so great at twisting the conventional love story.
Essie Avenue Maintain – I picked up this nail polish in the Look Fantastic winter sale and its currently on my nails for the time being. Its a pretty “Parisan light blue” colour which is quite different to anything in my collection. The lasting power on this formula has been pretty decent as well, keep an eye on my blog for more on this polish later…
