December Favourites

Hi everyone! I can't believe this is my first post for 2017 - I hope you had an amazing Christmas and New Year celebrated with your family and friends 💖 It's now time to pull up our socks and start working hard for our new goals! As for me I have exams coming up in about 2 weeks so bear with me if I'm not consistent but I'm going to try anyways! As you might have read in the previous post, I am no longer going to post on Monday and Friday's but I will be posting weekly with some additional posts here and there since I want to focus more on the quality of the posts rather than the quantity.

With December ending a couple of days ago, today I decided to share with you my December Favourites. Let's start!

Beauty Products 

I'm going to begin first with a couple of beauty products. The first thing I have been using non-stop is the Deborah Milano 24 Hour Absolute Volume Mascara. You can get any Deborah Milano Products at Remedies Pharmacy. I love the look it gives to my lashes - with just one swipe my lashes look fully coated and it gives so much volume and length.

The second thing I have been loving is the Maybelline Baby Lips in Dr.Rescue which a good old lipbalm with no tint whatsoever. I love the feeling I get on my lips as soon as I apply it. I have been having really bad chapped lips and this little guy fixes them immediately as they instantly feel moisturized.

The third item in my December Favourites is the Makeup Studio Colour Pigment in Copper. I have mentioned this in my November Favourites but I had to list it again in this month's favourites as I used it in so many festive looks! As I have explained in previous posts this is basically loose glitter that you can incorporate with your eyeshadow. I purchased mine from Melita Health & Beauty.

The last beauty product that I have been loving is the Maybelline Blush I recently got. It's in the shade Peach Pop. I love the coral-peachy tone it has and I love using it as part of my natural makeup look.


Apart from the endless Christmas and other festive songs I heard during the month of the December that I'm not going to share here, (I'm trying to get over the fact that the holidays are over 😭) I had a couple of songs that were stuck on repeat! Special shoutout to my friend who introduced me to a couple of Spanish songs by Maluma that I have been obsessed with! Here are a few of them:

1. I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift
2. Just Hold On - Louis Tomlinson ft. Steve Aoki
3. Rockabye - Clean Bandit ft. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie
4. Chantaje - Shakira ft. Maluma
5. Vente Pa' Ca - Ricky Martin ft. Maluma
6. I Would Like - Zara Larsson
7. Chunky - Bruno Mars
8. That's My Girl - Fifth Harmony
9. Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly, Camila Cabello


I have been wearing Simply You by Esprit which I had gotten from a dear friend of mine a couple of months ago. I love the smell of it !!


The month of December was basically the month where I binge-watched youtubers' vlogmas .. and I loved every second of them! My favourite would have to be Zoella's! Despite the fact that each vlog is about 30 minutes long I love all the festive activities she used to do during the month of December.

Another youtuber I have been obsessing with since FOREVER is Jeanine Amapola. She recently opened up about her personal life and since I love her for a couple of other reasons other than she is so beautiful and is amazing in doing makeup and styling outfits - I had to watch her video!


I LOVE dancing and sometimes I find myself wishing I'm the female version of Matt Steffanina. If you don't know who he is just watch my favourite video of his choreography here - he is amazing!

But I recently discovered this new channel called Saskia's Dansschool and I have been loving watching their videos! What they do is create easy fitness dance routines and repeat them over and over again as a form of exercise - but I simply love their choreography. My favourite would have to be Chantaje.

That's it for this month's Favourites! Tune in next week for another blog post! Make sure you've liked our Facebook page as a lot of interesting content is coming your way including some very exciting collabs!!

Take care,
Deborah X
