December Favourites

December was such a long month for me. Not necessarily in a bad way, just that there was so much going on in my life. I didn't really have many chances to go out and buy anything new, so I don't have as many favourites as I usually do. I hope that you like the ones that I do have, though!
I know I've mentioned this palette before, but I just love it. It's the perfect mix between magical but easy to wear shades. It also varies between shimmery and matte shades. Even though this isn't as important, I think that the packaging itself is adorable and so are the names.
Ok, so I'm not using this the way it's meant to be used. Instead of using it on parts of me that need to be relaxed, I use it on dry patches. Surprisingly, it works well. I always use it before bed, and the scent it very relaxing, so I should probably try using it for it's intended purpose.
This mask is very cheap, so I wasn't expecting much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised. Before taking a bath I put some of it on my face and my chest, and then wash it off after about 10 minutes. It instantly makes my skin look refreshed and glowing. The only problems I have with it is how sticky it is and the smell of it, but I can deal with those little issues for the result it gives.
 I love gold eyeshadow. Lately, I've been using this as a sort of a primer for the shade Pretty Sunrise in the wonderful dreams palette, and I think it gives a nice and unique effect. This also works very well on it's own, and is highly pigmented.
David's Tea Snow Day
This tastes like the liquid form of peppermint chocolate Girl Guide cookies. I absolutely love it! It's a very refreshing tea, but cozy and comforting at the same time. I wasn't expecting it to taste so much like chocolate, but that made me love it even more. Also, the little snowflake shaped sprinkles in it are adorable!
David's Tea Cardamom French Toast
My friend gave this so me for Christmas, and I think I'm obsessed with it. It's so cozy, with a little bit of spice. I'd love to try an actual cardamom French toast after drinking this tea!
To me, this is the perfect winter morning scent. It's light and refreshing and instantly makes me a little more awake. It's refreshing and rejuvenating, and I always reach for it when I light a candle in the morning.
In contrast to the Sugared Berries candle, I think that this is the perfect winter evening candle. It's warm and cozy and makes me want to snuggle up with my cat and a good book. This is also a lovely candle to light when I'm taking a bath at night.

Have you tried any of these? What were some of your favourite things in December?
