While I'm sad that Christmas is over and my cheese consumption has had to return to a more normal level, I am so excited to see what this year might bring. After a bit of a break from blogging I feel like I've had a the chance to recharge and I hope you'll enjoy all the content I've got planned for the next few months.

Today I wanted to show you a handful of things that I'm really loving this month and that I think you will too.

First up is this insanely cosy scarf from My VIP Wardrobe. Not only can you get it personalised with your initials (not just in pink, I might add), but the quality is absolutely fantastic. I went for the slightly more expensive cashmere/lambswool version as it's super super soft, but the regular 100% lambswool blend is also pretty dreamy. Although I went for a Castlebay monochrome pattern, there are loads to choose from, including a very Burberry inspired tartan. At between £35 to £50, not only are they affordable as far as wool scarves go, but you can make them unique by adding your initials for no extra cost. I'm already thinking about which one to order next!

I've not left the house without a tube of Hand Chemistry over the past few weeks - it's the only thing stopping my hands turning into some sort of very sexy lizard skin. Grim. I 've tried dozens of hand creams and this one is by far the best at this time of year as it sinks in quickly but hydrates like a dream.

Tom Ford's Flynn lipstick was my first foray into the brand and was a cheeky duty free purchase on my way to New York at the start of last year. For me, this is the ultimate pink-nude lipstick and one  I wear a LOT, so I was very happy to see it return as part of the collection towards the end of last year. Yes it's tiny, yes it's OMFG ARE YOU KIDDING at the price, but sometimes a girls just gotta do it. If you've not tried Flynn, you need it. Promise.

The one thing you probably don't need is a B. Eye Llash Curler. I'm a 'curl your lashes every day' kinda lady and I rely on a curler to keep them nice and lifted. When the rubbers on my Shu Uemera ones ran out, I thought I'd give the B. ones a try and unfortunately they're just not working for me. I normally love a B. product, but these are a nightmare to get to the base of my lashes and don't give a very good curl at all. The Shu ones are still the best I've used, so I'm going to buy another set and just grumble to myself about the lack of refills you can buy for them.

What are you loving this month? And is there anything you've found that's just not working for you?
