January Favourites

 Hello there! How is it now that time of month where I do my monthly favourites? This month has seemed to whizz by. So let's get into it!

 I have been a big lover of Hozier's album for a while now, but while I was at HMV at the beginning of the month his CD was on offer so I just had to buy it! I had an email a few months ago from Spotify recommending him to me, and I am so glad that I had a listen! If you haven't listened to him before, I'd definitely recommend it. My favourite tracks are 'Jackie and Wilson', 'Someone New', 'From Eden' and 'Foreigners God'. (It was actually really hard picking my favourites- I love them all!)

The Hills
 This month I have been a massive lover of re-watching the reality TV programme The Hills. I used to watch this on MTV back in my teenage days, but my lovely friend Will bought me the box set for my birthday as he knew that I really wanted to watch them again! I've really been enjoying watching them in order, as I only ever saw them in a jumbled order when they were on TV. The best thing is that the episodes are only 20 minutes long so it means that you can watch more!

Country Living Magazine
  As I mentioned last week, I am a devout lover of anything to do with homeware. As my mum knew this, she bought me the subscription to Country Living magazine a while ago now, and I still love it. My housemates may take the mick and say that I'm old, but I don't care- it's great. I love all of the pages where they're focusing on a room, and the articles are really interesting too! I have started a scrapbook of house inspiration (I told you I was obsessed) which I really enjoy doing, and the majority of things that I cut out and stick in are from Country Living.

Mac 'Patisserie'
 I bought this lipstick at the start of the month, and I absolutely love it. It's such a good 'your lips but better' shade. After the sparkle filled month of December, I really wanted to get back to a more natural look, and this has been just the thing. It's super nourishing and is so easy to put on- you really could put it on without a mirror and it would still look great.

Fruit and Greek Honey Yoghurt
 I have been a big lover of having fruit mixed with Greek honey yoghurt with fruit! I am really bad at having breakfast, but this is so quick and easy to do, and is a good way to ensure you're getting some of your daily dose of fruit. My favourite Greek honey yoghurt is actually the Tesco own brand one, but as I can only have this when I've done an online shop, I thought I would try out the Yeo Valley one. It will do for the weeks in-between a Tesco shop, but the Tesco one will remain my favourite!

Salmon and Dill Philadelphia
 I like to try different things for lunch as opposed to just having a cheese sandwich everyday. I don't like the Philadelphia that has no extra flavourings, and I've tried the chive and the sweet chilli ones before which were nice. However, the Salmon and Dill one is my all-time favourite. It's such an easy lunch to get a few rice cakes and spread this on top. It's also great with crumpets or as a part of a toasted sandwich.

Electric Blanket
 Back in Suffolk I have an electric blanket and this really was something that I missed at uni. There's nothing better than getting into bed and it's toasty warm, especially if Tom's then there taking my heat away! This month I managed to buy myself one to have here at uni and it's just fab. It arrived when we had all the snow and really couldn't have come at a better time!

So there you have it! The things that I have been loving throughout January. What about you? Is there  anything you've been loving? Let me know in the comments!
