My December Essentials & Favourites | Ft. Thread Wallets

Hey, girl! You guys really loved my October favourites post, so I’ve decided to do another! I LOVE using new products and trying out new things, so why not share them with you? Keep reading to find out my favourite accessories, beauty products, books, and songs!If you didn’t see my October Beauty Favourites, you can check them out here!

This post is sponsored by Thread Wallets, but all my opinions are my own πŸ™‚

My December Essentials & Favourites:

#1. Burt’s Bee’s Tinted Lip Balm

I am a huge fan of Burt’s Bees products because they are chemical free and well, amazing! I love their tinted lip balms because your lips get moisturizered and a little colour!

#2. To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before By Jenny Han

I am obsessed with this book, seriously. After I read the first one in the series within like 2 days, I quickly bought the second and third! It was SO good! It’s a lighthearted teen romance but I love how quirky and down-to-earth the main character, Lara Jean, is. Plus, they are making the first book into a movie which is awesome! It comes out in 2018 and I can’t wait! Some of the actors are Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, Janel Parish and more! Eee!

#3. My Thread Wallet Slim Wallet

I just had to include my new thread wallet and lanyard as one of my new favourites. I reached out to Thread Wallets and they were kind enough to send me an amazing wallet and matching lanyard. The wallet’s pockets are elastic and so its super slim and easily fits into a pocket. Their motto is “Slim Wallets With Style” I don’t know about you, but I hate carrying a big wallet around, and if I do that means I have to bring my purse… and you already know that whole story. This wallet is honestly perfect for my debit card, bus pass, a couple of bills if I need it, and I’m good to go! It easily slides into my pants pocket, coat pocket, backpack, and it’s the perfect size! I also love the lanyard that goes with it! Check out Thread Wallets here!

#4 DIY Snowglobe

If you read my Winter DIY’s blog post that I published when I had JUST started my blog, you are the real OG. (That was over a year ago) Anyway, if you read that post, you would know I made this snowglobe and it was super fun and affordable to make. Even though I made it a while ago, it’s still one of my favourite Christmas/winter decor pieces.

#5. The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

I got this as a gift along with the matching coconut body scrub and let me say, I’m in love. The scent is absolutely perfect and nothing beats dry hands in the winter better than this body butter.

#6. Arrow Diffuser Bracelet

Another gift I got recently, but I have been meaning to get one of these bracelets for the longest time. The little beads have pores in them, so you just pick your favourite essential oil, rub a little in, and you have a solution to all your problems! Okay, not really πŸ˜‰ There are so many different oils for different purposes. Example. peppermint for headaches (the perfect homework solution), lavender for calming, and so on! Check out the bracelets here!

#7 Homei Gel Kit

I received this gel kit in my November galaxy-themed XoPeachy Box! It comes with two polishes that you apply and a mini travel sized UV light to dry your nails! (They have TONS of other colours on their site too) This light is perfect for travelling or if you are in a hurry to dry your nails and should work with regular polish too! Check it out here.

#8 Favourite Songs Of The Month

Of course, I couldn’t end a favourites post without some music. Even though I totally forgot to include music in the October Favourites post, oops 😬Here are my favourite songs atm:

  • Seeing Blind – Niall Horron & Maren Morris
  • I Miss You – Clean Bandit & Julia Michaels
  • Perfect – Ed Sheern & Beyonce
  • New Year’s Day – Taylor Swift
  • Collide – Rachel Platten
  • Love So Soft – Kelly Clarkson
  • Problems – SonReal


What are your recent favourites? Should I do more of these blog posts? I was thinking maybe every 2-3 months. What do you think? Also, do have any product reccomendations you think I should try out? Comment below, let me know!
