Au revoir, Janvier

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Ah, January. It's finally coming to an end and I can practically hear the whole planet letting out a collective sigh of relief.

January hasn't been a bad one for me, I've had a lot of spare time to get coursework done and keep wrapped up warm inside. My mum and I went to Sheffield a week ago which is when I was burdened with my third cold of the season. Apart from that, the day was amazing and I managed to buy some lovely things for my journal and my wardrobe. Still, I'm glad to see the back end of this month. I'm looking forward to seeing signs of spring pop up around the place (if the snow eases, that is).

I've had a few technical drawings to complete for my course recently and I'm not going to lie they're not my favourite thing to do, but after I bought a (very cheap) draughtsman board off Amazon it became a little easier (and dare I say fun). Once I have my assignments scanned and photocopied I can submit them and be done with technical drawing (for the time being). I must say, using a scale ruler and a set square does make me feel nerdy and I love it. Using a proper drawing board makes me look like I know what I'm doing even when I don't.

I recently decided to try a new moisturiser and cleanser from Facetheory. I've had the website bookmarked for years so I finally had a browse and came across some products that were exactly what I'd been looking for. I got the Oil-Free Supergel Moisturiser that is packed with camomile, aloe, green tea, niacinamide, vitamin B3, stabilised vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid. Basically every skin-loving ingredient known to man. I love this so far, it's light and a little goes a long way.

I've also been trying out the Clarifying Cleanser that has glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, Argenine, sweet almond oil and avocado in it. This stings ever so slightly (not too uncomfortable) but my skin looks phenomenal afterwards. All Facetheory products are cruelty free and free from nasties such as parabens, SLS, SLES, and sulphates. #notspon and #notgifted, just impressed by the brand and products. Oh, and their lab is in Sheffield so the products are being made very local to me!

I'm hoping to take some pictures of my new journal soon that I've been working on throughout the month. It's wonderfully messy and colourful and I am really enjoying using cute washi tapes and stickers again.

Hope January was kind to you, if not I hope February brings you better things.
