I’m rubbish aren’t I?! I started doing my favourites at the end of last year and was supposed to post them monthly and it lasted all of one month before I never did it again! I’m trying so hard to get on top of my scheduling now though (does anyone have any tips on how they stay on top of their posts?) so hopefully soon I’ll have a clear weekly and monthly list of posts for you 🙂
Without further ado though, here are my February favourites:
Face: Revlon Colour Stay
I picked this up at the beginning of February and it was really my go to foundation for most of the month! It’s full matte coverage and long lasting wear really make it a good daily dupe for my MAC foundation which I like to save for special occasions. I’ll be doing a full review of my foundations soon, so keep your eyes peeled for this soon 🙂
Now I know that GHD’s have been around for ever and I have owned my pair for nearly two years, but throughout Feb I’ve had so much fun trialling new hairstyles now my hair is a bit longer and in better condition that my straighteners have really come in to their own! For curling or straightening with a good conditioning heat protective spray they can revitalise even the most boring of hair in a matter of minutes so have definitely been my go to for a fresh look each morning throughout Feb!
These definitely have to be one of my fave purchases from the whole of February! I only picked them up at the very end of the month but have barely taken them off since. Not only were they a complete and utter bargain, they are also so unbelievably comfortable and stylish. I already own a green pair of thigh high boots but can’t wear them very often as they are a size too small so are really more of a dinner boot (you know those shoes which are gorgeous but way too uncomfortable to wear anywhere where you won’t be sat down) so these boots are the perfect stand in to wear all day everyday! I even think they will be perfect for the winter to spring transition as they are so minimal yet chic – basically I love them and won’t be taking them off any time soon!
Accessory: Fur Jacket from Luton
I bought this before Christmas but because it has been a bit warmer the past few weeks I’ve been able to wear it a bit more! I couldn’t tell you what shop it was from as it was an independent in the shopping centre in Luton, but every time I wear this jacket someone compliments me on it which is exactly the items of clothing I like to own. I like them to look unique and for people to like them, so this is an item I’m glad I picked up 🙂
Music: The Weeknd – Trilogy
Although this is an old album which I’ve listened to before, hearing the Weeknd on The Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack reignited my love for this album and I’ve been listening to it on repeat pretty much since the middle of February! Check it out if you haven’t already – it’s a really unique sound and I just cannot get enough!
Food – Sweet Waffles with Chocolate Spread
This is probably part of the reason I have gained weight and not yet reached my target of 10% fat reduction! As part of pancake day we started to buy sweet pancakes as a healthier alternative snack and I’ve been pretty addicted especially with yummy melted chocolate spread on them! Just writing this makes me want to eat one (but I can’t because I’m being super good at the moment) so if you haven’t already, check them out 🙂 Lidl do an amazing version which is of course a bargain especially with their chocolate swirl spread!
TV/Movie – This was a tough choice so I’ve picked both Better Call Saul and Phone Shop
Obviously Phone Shop is a really old series, but I started watching it on Netflix and ended up very quickly getting through all of the seasons as it’s just so silly and light hearted it’s a great watch at the end of a busy day!
Also, Better Call Saul is finally out and it’s had me gripped from episode one! As a Breaking Bad fan (I kind of had to be as Andy loves it!) this series was always going to be on my watch list and so far I think I’m enjoying it more, as I love how all the characters we already know come together with new characters so well! I wish they released more than one episode at a time though because I hate waiting for a whole week to see what’s going to happen next L
Perfume: Valentina by Valentino
I asked for this for Christmas and got it and have loved it ever since! I wish I could wear it every day but it’s one of the smells that I like to save for special occasions 🙂 It’s so classic and elegant but still crisp. I can’t even explain it, just get down and give it a smell!
Normally I would also let you know what my favourite shop and house product were as well, but I genuinely cannot think of a good answer for either of these so I’m going to leave these out and hopefully this month I’ll be able to think of answers for you 🙂
I’d love to hear what your favourites for February were so please let me know in the comments below and of course let me know if you think there are products I need to try this month that you are loving at the moment!
Lots of love, Leanne xx
