December Favourites

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a great few days, and I wish you a happy new year 🙂

I’ve been loving a couple of products this month – both from Lush. The first one is a Shampoo Bar called ‘New’ £5.95 – I’ve been using it for over a month and I’ve hardly made a dent! It’s a solid bar containing cinnamon, clove and peppermint and it’s supposed to stimulate the hair follicles to grow faster. I don’t know about that claim, but it smells amazing (if you like peppermint!).

The other product is the Salt and Peppermint Bark Shower Scrub which was £5.95, but it was a winter exclusive and now it’s not on the website 😦 It’s such a shame because I loved this! I’ll be savouring the last few uses of this because I really love the smell of peppermint… And I think it’s a great scrub. Even though it specifies use in the shower, I always use it in the bath because then you can control how wet it gets and how quickly you get through it.

The photo also shows another addition to my plant collection… It’s getting a bit out of hand, but I couldn’t resist!

The ‘smash the patriarchy’ pillow is actually a Christmas present – it perfectly matches my bedroom colours and I just love it so much! It also means a lot that my parents are accepting of my feminist views.

I’ve really loved having my sister visit this month as she’s away from university. One thing we did was see the movie Sisters; it stars Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (who I love!), and it’s just super funny.

I spent the second week of December in Paris for the climate negotiations. I blogged about why I was going last month, and I have to include it in my favourites because it was an incredible week. It was so emotional and I cried both happy and sad tears, but I’m really glad I went. It’s hard to articulate, but I hope that the deal that was agreed upon is a signal for change. This is a photo of me at the protest on Saturday 12th December by the Eiffel Tower – one of the many ‘highs’ of the week!

December has ultimately been a great month and I’ve really enjoyed the last week of festivities!
