{Lifestyle} Favourite Things – January ’17

So… January ended… how about that!?
I know this post is a bit late and we are already well into February, but I’m still only just coming to terms that it is 2017 already, I’m dumbfounded by how fast this year is already flying by. Slow down! Uni starts again soon, how did that happen?

Focusing on getting organised for the fast-approaching university semester most of my favourites for January included new stationary I purchased to keep me on track throughout uni, as well as a couple of new cosmetic additions!

Foil Rose Gold Notebook Set | Kmart
I went to Kmart this January and went on a stationary shopping spree. I bought so many beautiful rose gold themed stationary items to get me organised for the up and coming semester. One of the items I grabbed was this three pack of rose gold foil A4 notebooks. All three notebooks have a different design on the front cover, with one having a soft pink background and the words “time is now” foiled onto the cover.

Rose Gold Pens | Kmart
I also grabbed these beautiful rose gold metallic pens, just to round out my rose gold stationary collection.

Sunshine Hardcover Notebook | Kmart
Although I probably already have enough notebooks I also picked up this cute pink notebook with foil lettering on the cover with the words “create sunshine on a cloudy day”. A good mantra to remember I thought.

Rose Gold Notebook | Kmart
Yet another notebook, I also bought this cute, but shiny, notebook from Kmart!

Rose Gold To Do List | Kmart
Kmart were also selling these cute rose gold and brown paper to-do lists which has room to write down items and prioritise tasks on it.

Rose Gold Monthly Planner | Kmart
And lastly from Kmart I bought this cute planner. It says it is a monthly planner, but I am actually using it as a weekly one. I use the columns going down to mark out the hours in my day and plan my events and study time, so far, I’m probably using this item the most out of all the beautiful things I bought from Kmart!

Scarlett Birch 2017 Diary | Rifle Paper Co.
I bought this 2017 diary off Ozsale at the end of last year and it arrived in January, I’m completely smitten with it! It’s gorgeous and it contains everything I require in a planner.

Bourjois Blush – Lilas D’or | Priceline
A recent Christmas gift was this blush from Bourjois, this is my second blush from this range and I’m still completely in love with them. They give off such a great colour payoff with beautiful flecks of shimmer, and of course their signature rose scent!

Bourjois Rouge Aqua Laque Lipstick – Appechissant | Priceline
Another beautiful Christmas gift was this gorgeous lippy from Bourjois. It is similar to a gloss, it is so smooth and silky, yet it doesn’t feel sticky like glosses usually do, I’m also really pleased with the colour, I think it is lovely!

L’Oreal Paris Colour Richie Extraordinaire – Molto Mauve | L’Oreal Paris
I was gifted this L’Oreal lippy for Christmas as part of the Bloggers United AU Kris Kringle. It is such a lovely colour, very similar to my natural lip colour, except better!

Satsuma Body Butter | The Body Shop
I was also part of a Kris Kringle in my workplace this Christmas, the colleague who had to purchase a gift for me ended up gifting me with an adorable The Body Shop SatsumaΒ  Trinket Tin, one of the products inside was this body butter. Citrus isn’t a scent that I usually select for myself, however I am just loving this at the moment, it is so fresh and invigorating.

Alex Perry AP SUN RX09 Sunglasses | Specsavers
I got new glasses in December, one pair for everyday use, and one pair of sunglasses. These were the sunglasses I chose, a very classic aviator style frame with a brown tinted lens. I love them and I basically wear them every single day!

    Don’t worry, January is basically a write-off for me haha. I don’t believe the year should begin until February, after I’ve recovered from the holidays and new year. πŸ˜›
    Good old Kmart delivering the goods! You got such cute stationary! Rose gold is always a must.

    Hey you can never have enough notebooks and KMart are killing it in that department (along with their homewares!). It’s insane how fast this year is flying by isn’t it!?

    • February 22, 2017 / 1:38 pm

      I could never have enough Kmart items, they are just gorgeous, my house is basically made from things I’ve found at Kmart haha! Xx

    I love all of the stationary you picked out! That’s one thing I miss about uni- all of the back to school shopping!
