January Favourites

Today's post is going to be a bit different as Deborah from Distorted Priorities and I have teamed up to share our January favourites so make sure to head over to Distorted Priorities to read all about my favourites.


Hi everybody! I’m super excited to be working with Sarah and writing a guest blog post on What Sarah Writes! By way of introduction, my name is Deborah and I am 19 years old. I am a second year student at the University of Malta taking a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and Marketing! I have a passion for anything beauty & fashion related. Another hobby of mine is to explore the word and travel – that is basically what Distorted Priorities is all about! I started my blog last September and today I will be bringing you my January Favourites from fashion, makeup, music and youtubers. If you like what you read, make sure to ‘like’ Distorted Priorities on Facebook and follow us on social media (all links will be at the end of the post) so that you will not miss out any more blog posts! Wow that was long! Let’s get onto the post shall we?

Starting off with beauty products, I have 5 products in all! Let’s take a look at them!


I am a tiny bit obsessed with ColourPop and I’m building quite a collection. I recently purchased this colour which is like a terracotta colour which is perfect for those who want to switch from the usual red lipstick but still want to stay on these kinds of shades. I will link the ColourPop haul & swatches post I did on my blog at the end of the post if you’re interested in more detail into how it looks.

Well, this is a simple lip balm but with a barely visible light pink tint to it and I just love how moisturized my lips feel after I use it!

3. Flormar Mascara – Spider Lash 3 in 1

To be completely honest with you, when I first tried this mascara I did not like it at all! I did not like the length & volume it gave but after I tried a couple of times I have grown fond of it! Apart from being super affordable, I love the natural look it gives to my lashes and whenever I want to look somewhat presentable at university or when I’m making a quick errand I like to apply a coat or two of this mascara. You can find this mascara at any of the Flormar outlets in Malta. 

I recently purchased two Morphe Palettes from CultBeauty that I have been wanting for the longest time and when I made this purchase I received this blush palette for free. I love it because it comes with

9 different shades so you simply carry it with you and you’ll always find a shade that will suit your makeup look.

The last beauty related product is the Milani Everydy Makeup Palette. Again, I will link the post I did on the whole haul and swatches but I love this palette because you can create multiple looks from it, being a simple one or a smokey eye kind of look.

Moving on to clothing I have this chunky knitted black & white scarf that I carry around me wherever I go. During my exams, I used to wear this thing around my neck ALL-THE-TIME since it was super chilly and it would keep me so warm whether I was taking an exam or studying at the library. I had purchased mine from Mango.

I am SLIGHTLY obsessed with music and thank God a lot of new singles came out as soon as 2017 began! Apart from new singles (and a LOT of Bruno Mars songs) I have been replaying some oldies

I have been recently obsessed with vlogs from youtubers that I have been watching for a while now – my top 3 favourites would be Jeanine Amapola , Alisha Marie & Tara Michelle. I have also been binge-watching makeup tutorials by Jaclyn Hill. Recently, I discovered about this couple that are youtubers – Gabriel & Jess Conte who recently got married and I got to know their story and I have been obsessed with their vlogs! I’m a sucker for anything romantic, what can I do?

That brings us to the end of the post! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read this post! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope to see you over on Distorted Priorities.

P.S.: I may or may not be here again very soon! #staytuned

  5. I love this collaboration, Sarah & Deborah. It's such a fun way to spice up a good ol' Favourites Post.

    I've been DYING to try Morphe palettes and the blush palette looks so pretty. I also have this one piece of clothing that I carry everywhere I go around campus, but it isn't nearly as stylish as your scarf, Deborah, haha. Ed Sheeran's new tracks have been on repeat for me, too!

    Have a lovely February, the both of you!
