:: December Favourites ::

Once again, I want to apologize for the photo quality of a favourites post. I don't know whats with my camera and this kind of posts, but it never wants to take a good photo. 
Here are my beauty favorites for December: 
You may have seen this in a recent buys post last month. I'm happy to say that I love it! It's a very subtle shimmery pink that is perfect for everyday wear. 
2. The Body Shop Cranberry Body Butter
I found this in the back of a cupboard, and I don't think that they make the exact same kind anymore. However, I really like the scent, and I love the big container. I always use it after I take a shower or bath and it keeps my skin real soft and moisturized.
I actually "stole" this from my mom's cupboard. I've been trying to make my hair healthier and I thought that this might help. After a shower, when my hair is almost dry, I like to put a very light coat of this in and then tie it into a bun or a braid. I find that this has made my hair start to shine more after I take it out of the bun or braid.
I thought that I'd give one of these textured polishes a try, and I purchased a subtle light pink color. I was not disappointed! In some lights it appears to be a kind of rose pink, and in others almost silvery. I also love the texture.
This is another one I found in the back of a cupboard. It smells amazing! It also keeps my lips nice and moisturized. 

If you want a swatch for any of these, just let me know!
Here are my other favourites for December:
1. Smartwool Gloves
Sorry I don't have a link for these! My Aunt got me these for Christmas, and I've been wearing them ever since. They keep my hands really warm and cozy, and are still cute at the same time.
Before I bought a tin of this, I tried just a cup of it a couple times. I absolutely love it! It is really unique and festive.
I love this tea! It smells and tastes like gingerbread. It is perfect for winter and for the holiday season.

Because this is the last month of the year, I thought that I'd link to my favourite posts from each month. Here they are!

Have a great 2015 everybody! Make it the best that it can be

  5. I love the sound of those body butters! Cranberry and mango, they must smell great :)
    The teas also sound yummy! Oh, I was over at a friend's and she happened to have chamomile. I showed her your recipe and she made the Christmas tea! It smelled and tasted really nice, thank you for it! :)

    Have a blessed New Year! <3

  37. That tea must be really good, too sad they don't sell it in Estonia. But it was a great post! And I don't want to bother you or anything, but would you like to do a review on the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave in Smoothing Cream? I'd be really interested in it! :)

  38. I want the Elf Studio Blush SO BADDD! My country doesn't have Elf counters so I need to purchase it online. Still wondering which shade should I go for. Have you tried 'Blushing Rose'?

    1. Hmmm, the only one that I've tried is twinkle pink, and it is a little light for me, even though I have SUPER pale skin. So I'd probably recommend a darker pink....
