January Favourites Roundup

Even though it's my Birthday month, a new year and time for new beginnings and resolutions, I always feel super blue in January. It's too cold, Spring seems super far away and there just isn't that much to do!

But instead of dwelling on it I thought I'd share with you some of the highlights of my month that have certainly brightened it up:

We won this super rad light-up constellations globe on eBay. It looks so pretty when you're in total darkness - the best night light!
Keeping with the space theme we also picked up this awesome galaxy print duvet set for £10. Bargain! 
I found this little cat cutter in a bargain shop my pals like to call 'The Church of Junk'. It was £1 and stamp-cuts little cats into paper.
I got these records for my birthday which was on the 2nd. I am a huge Willie Nelson fan, old country music is my jam, it's so heartbreaking! Anyway I can't wait to add more to this little collection in the future.
I got this super cute Pastel Boyfriend Cardigan in the ASOS sale - it's so warm and cosy.
My favourite beauty product this month has been Taylor Swift's fragrance Wonderstruck. I've got 3 bottles and the lotion now, it's a really sweet but subtle and long lasting smell plus TaySwift is a mega babe! The bottle is gorgeous, it shimmers in the light and the 50ml comes with a cute charm attached.
The blizzard of 2013, see my post on it HERE but seeing my kitty Prince in the snow for the first time was definitely my highlight of Jan :)

What have your favourite things in January been?

I'm super looking forward to February, my goal is to bake more. Also Pancake Day is right around the corner so don't forget to enter my Pancake Day Party giveaway!
