Hello Beautiful People.


Welcome to another post here on UnderBeauty'sSurface, as we are now at the start of spring I thought it would be a great time to look back at some the products I've been loving lately. Just to point out, the products featured aren't just products you'd use in the winter, they serve a purpose all year round but I've just enjoyed using them in the last few months. So let's take a look at what I've been loving this winter.

1). Cosy Socks

There's something about a pair of thick, soft, cosy socks that are a winter must-have. Obviously, I know how basic socks are and this isn't some amazing new product just showing some love to these feet snugglers. Everyone pretty much wears cosy, thick socks in winter but for me, I didn't like wearing thick socks, I was more of a trainer sock/ankle sock type of gal but lately, I've been loving very cosy socks. They've also been lifesavers when it's come to breaking in my new Doc Martens!



Recently I spotted this gorgeous 2 pack of cosy white & beige socks from Primark, that is apart of Primark's new wellness range. These socks are made from recycled fabrics and only cost me £3 a pack, which may seem like a lot for Primark socks but I'm happy to pay that amount for sustainable fashion. These socks are super warm, soft and really great quality so definitely worth it! As I said before this post isn't at all sponsored, with that being said I want to say a massive shout to Primark because their Wellness range is absolutely amazing! The range features 75 different sustainable products from skincare to dressing gowns to water bottles and after seeing the collection in Primark Oxford St. I really had to sustain myself from buying a bunch of stuff that I do not need. Definitely check out the range (obviously once we're allowed to leave the house again)!



2). Minimal Gold Chains

I've gained a brand new obsession with gold minimal chains that are cheap and cheerful. I find them the perfect accessory to pair with any outfit, whether it's bold or casual- a gold piece really adds to it! I can't begin to express my obsession with gold chains but all I will say is I've gathered up a lot. I'm aware that the gold on costume jewellery fades very quickly reason why I tend to purchase cheaper necklaces ranging between £1-£5 as I can happily throw them away and repurchase them when they become worn out.


As I said before these chains are super cheap and cheerful like this star pendant chain I got from Primark for only £1.50. Obviously, this won't stay bright for that long depending on how many times I wear it but I love it enough to repurchase it when it does fade out. I'm not too fussy on the type of pendant on the gold chains, I pretty much like anything, as long as their minimal and cute. I do have a large collection of chains that have the letter 'M' on it to symbolise my boyfriend, sounds cringe I know lol but I really love it. I have different types of 'M' chains so I can switch up now and again.



3). Girl of Now by Elie Sabb

I fell in love with this scent last winter and I'm still obsessed with it today, I recently purchased a 50ml bottle for Christmas and I've used it every single day since. It's the perfect sweet but floral scent which is why I love it so much, obviously like with all scents it's not for everyone because it is very sweet but this is my all-time favourite perfume since Chanel Gabriel (which I cannot afford lol)- the reason why I decided to give this baby a little photoshoot lol.






4). Good Vibes, Good Life by Vex King

I've been enjoying reading this book by Vex King, it's truly inspiring and such a great read. I've yet to finish it because I live such a busy life doing all sorts and rarely have time to pick up a book but this book is a great casual read. Each time I read a page in this book, I feel ready to get my life together- King is great at influencing the very best out of you and making the most out of every situation



Also some of the quotes featured in this book make perfect instagram captions...just saying.



5). Aroma Diffuser

I love using my aroma diffuser, I like to add a few drops of essential oil such as peppermint or eucalyptus and it creates such a zen atmosphere. I tend to put my diffuser on whilst I meditate or just before I'm about to go to bed to give my room a pure & cleansed aura. I also find that putting lavender oil in my diffuser is perfect to help me with restless nights.



There are also many benefits to aromatherapy for those who may be interested in getting a diffuser such as helping relieve stress, it can also kill mould and bacteria - just add some tea tree, eucalyptus oil and thyme to your diffuser. Honestly, there are so many great uses of an aroma diffuser that I really need to explore but so far I absolutely love it!


6). Faux Cheese Grater Plant

As a bonus to this list, I wanted to add the beautiful plant featured in all the above images- my plastic cheese grater plant. I love this little added feature, it adds the perfect finishing touch to any surface. Also with it being plastic means that it'll always stay cute, green and in shape for as long as you love it. I love how this plant gives my bedroom that pinterest look lol if you get what I mean, it's just so aesthetically pleasing to look at. So here's some more cute pictures of my plant because it adds that perfect touch to blog pictures.






And there you have it beauties, some of my favourite things... Of course there are a few more stuff that I've been loving so far this year but these are my top 6 products. I hope you've enjoyed reading this post, here's just a quick message- As I'm posting this during the Covid19 lockdown I just want to remind my readers to remain safe, stay indoors & if you have to leave your house, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly when you return home!
