14 Things I Love

some_text

Today is the soppiest day of the year, of course it’s Valentine’s Day and it’s definitely like Marmite… You either love it or you hate it, there is no in between really. Well I say that but I’m one of those in between people… I hate Valentine’s Day for various reasons, but I don’t love it. The only thing I like about it is being able to buy Dane a card and write a soppy as fuck message inside for him. I wasn’t going to this year, but alas on a mini food shop I ended up picking up a card. DAMN!

So instead of a soppy post like some people may be posting today, I decided to write about 14 things I love instead… 14 stands for the date by the way. πŸ˜›

  1. Pokemon – Everyone knows this is one of the things I love and I have done for nearly twenty years now! I love every aspect about it including the games, anime, the figures, etc etc. I could go on about what I love about it. It’s just such an interesting series and is one of the many things that takes me back to my childhood. Mornings spent watching the anime on SM:TV Live, as well as playing the first and second generations on my Game Boy Color during the weekends off school and summer holidays.
  2. Perfume/fragrance – I love wearing perfume, even though on the rare occasion I won’t be in the mood for it, so I won’t wear it. I wear all sorts of different ones, but some of my favourites to name are Thierry Muglar Alien, Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, DKNY Red Delicious, Gucci Envy Me and Dior Addict. I’m sure I can think of more than this mind!
  3. Food – I have always loved food, especially savory food. I would eat bags of crisps over a bar of chocolate any day! I love to eat food, cook food, watch food being cooked, thinking about food, everything you can think of to be honest. I especially love Japanese food, as well as Italian food as well. OH and you can never go wrong with American food as well. One of my favourite things to cook is probably my homemade piri piri fries, just because I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love them.
  4. Lipstick – As the only make up I wear is lipstick I love them so damn much. I love all sorts of lipsticks of course, especially liquid lipsticks. When I first starting to wear lipstick properly I opted for dark pink shades, which moved onto red, then various pink shades and lately I wear a lot of dark shades such as dark raspberry pink, various purple shades and even a dark purple/navy shade lately. I can only see me going darker too! I can’t stand nude shades or light pink, they don’t suit me at all and look awful on me.
  5. Holographic – I am a holosexual through and through and it reminds me of growing up as a teenager and wanting all these things… But sadly I wasn’t able to have them. Due to the whole 90’s trend coming back, of course holographic stuff has too. I only really pick up any holographic goodies if I really like the look of the, and I don’t know why but the holographic look just makes me so happy!
  6. Foxes – These are my favourite animals with dogs and otters coming second and third. I don’t know what it is about them that I love, maybe it’s that they’re ginger… Maybe it’s that they’re cunning… Maybe it’s because they’re fluffy? I don’t know but I think they’re beautiful animals!
  7. Studio Ghibli – One of my favourite anime film studios and the same place that has made one of my favourite films, Spirited Away. I love how creative and unique the stories and characters are that come out of Studio Ghibli, as well as how beautiful the art style is as well. Me and Dane own all of the Ghibli movies to date and I love watching them throughout the year, but especially with people who have never seen them before. I love seeing people fall in love with them.
  8. Lady and The Tramp – I do like Disney but there’s only a handful of the films that I really love and fan over. Lady and The Tramp is my favourite Disney film and one I’ll always keep close to my heart. I just remember watching it when I was a little girl and falling in love with Lady, Tramp and the other dogs. Jock is definitely one of my favourites too! The story is just beautiful and at the time was probably a story line seen in romantic movies, so the fact they brought it to a children’s film was so good.
  9. Goodsmile Company Nendoroid’s – These are little figures based on Japanese anime and manga series, however it has shifted more over to the Western trends such as Disney movie characters (Frozen, Star Wars, Marvel etc) and even some game characters (Animal Crossing, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, etc). Both me and Dane LOVE Nendoroid’s and we are constantly eyeing up new ones to buy… They’re not cheap though so they’re definitely a treat whenever we get any. I need to do a post soon about which ones we’re both lusting after.
  10. Duvet Days – This is definitely something I love! I don’t get them as much as I used to due to being busy with work, or the house, or other things. BUT saying this I am currently sat up in bed typing up this post, watching The Last Leg. At this moment in time I cannot possibly complain. πŸ˜› I just love duvet days where I can lie in bed for at least 3 hours on my iPhone scrolling through YouTube and Instagram. These make perfect weekend mornings for me.
  11. Coffee – As a trained barista I love knowing how to make a perfect cup of coffee, but do you know what is even better? Having my own coffee machine to make coffee shop style coffee at home! I LOVE IT! Apart from loving coffee in that way, I also love coffee flavoured things, as well as coffee beans covered in chocolate. I am that weirdo who loves the coffee Revels and Roses. πŸ˜›
  12. Bubble baths – I swear I was a mermaid in a previous life! Before all these trends of “being a mermaid” came around I always joked about this. I LOVE baths and I could spend hours in the bath reading books, scrolling through YouTube and Instagram on my phone, and even doing some writing in my journal. Even as a child and teenager I would sit in the bath for hours on end and just add more hot water whenever I felt chilly. Showers I’m not so arsed about, but baths are just heaven to me! I’ve always had a fascination with water too and I don’t know why to be honest, so much so I’ve written stories about water before and various novels as well.
  13. My best friend Gabriella – I mentioned her recently on my Galentine’s Day post, which you can read here. I’ve known Gabriella for nearly 10 years now and I tell you it has FLOWN by! But I love her so much, she is like a sister to me and we get on so well. We talk daily and whether we’re feeling great or like shit we’re always there for each other no matter what. We’ve both supported each other the past month about different things and if I’m ever in the shit and need someone and Dane isn’t around, I know she’ll be there for me no matter what. I love her so much. :’)
  14. Dane – I said Valentine’s Day is soppy but I don’t recall saying there wouldn’t be any on here… πŸ˜› But of course I love Dane. He’s my boyfriend, my best friend, my soul mate and the best person I have ever met. He’s always there for me no matter what and even when I’m a miserable bitch and take stuff out on him, he’s always there to give me a cuddle and be understanding of whatever has happened. I just love him so much, I can’t even describe it. He’s my light in the dark, the apple to my pie and as I’ve started to joke, the stink to my fart. πŸ˜›

So those were 14 things I love! I’m sorry this post isn’t anything special but I wanted to do something for today but only worked something out at the last minute. πŸ˜›

What 14 things do you love? Please make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and whatever you’re doing today, have a lovely day. ^_^

September ’16 Favourites

I read the other day that there are now only 12 Monday’s left until Christmas. DAYUM! September is now over and I am gutted. It’s my favourite month for various reasons so I am sad to say goodbye to it for another year.

Autumn is now upon us and I am super excited for darker days, chilly evenings and an excuse for drinking nothing but hot chocolate!

So before I talk about why I love autumn (we shall save that for another post!) I better get on with what my favourites were for the month.

 photo September Favs_zpsd7gz0hq9.jpg

  • Palmolive Gourmet Chocolate Shower Cream

This is probably my favourite thing from this month as it is just a perfect bog standard shower cream. I picked this up on a food shop when it was on offer for a Β£1 in Morrisons and I regret not buying a couple of them now considering they’ve gone up to Β£2.20! Due to us finishing the product sadly the bottle has now gone, but I’ve inserted a picture above so you get an idea of what it looks like. It’s a thick shower cream and due to this it foams up lovely in a sponge and a little goes a long way. Like pretty much all Palmolive shower creams this leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, as well as smelling beautiful! This doesn’t smell like a horrible artificial chocolate scent, it smells creamy and yummy. They also came out with a vanilla and strawberry version. I can see us stocking up on this as soon as we see it at a decent price again.

  • Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint in shade Vamped Up

Over the past year I have really gotten into my darker shades and I feel like most shades I buy now are either dark red, pink or purple. Of course when I eyed up these new lip paints by Maybelline it was either the red or the purple shade, I obviously picked up the latter. My mom actually told me about these and they are amazing! So pigmented and last ages. I wear this with a lip liner for both work and social and I love it. I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it throughout autumn and winter this year.

  • Imperial Leather Marshmallow Bath Cream

I remember buying this bath cream for Dane as he loves the shower cream. I’m always having Lush baths in the house and although he doesn’t like taking baths often I wanted to get him something nice that he can use whenever he does fancy having one. You know what? I’ve been using this bath cream more than he has! I even picked up a bottle when I recently stayed in Chichester for a week and used it a couple of times. It creates lovely fluffy bubbles and is strong enough in scent that you can smell it on you hours later. Sadly the shower cream isn’t as good as that. I picked this up for a Β£1 in both Boots and Sainsburys so it’s a complete bargain!

  • Forever Young By Jean Pierre Pore Control Green Tea Facial Mask

I picked these up recently from Homesense on a whim that they sounded good, were cheap and the fact I’m obsessed with sheet masks these days! I took one with me to Chichester and used one when I came back too. These aren’t as great as the Korean sheet masks but for the price they’re a really nice treat that you can have more often. I decided to get the pore control ones so that both myself and Dane could give them a go. I don’t have big pores, but I do like to keep them clear is possible. I also love anything with green tea which is nice. I used these after scrubbing my face so that all the goodness from the mask can get into my skin. When it’s been a little warmer the past month these have been really nice to use. I recommend them!

  • Paco Rabbane Lady Million EDP

I’ve owned this perfume for quite a long time since my mom gave it to me. It reminds me of fluffy towels and freshly washed bedding, which I find really comforting. I’ve been wearing it for work various times throughout the month and it’s been a really nice transitioning scent from summer to autumn. It’s nice and strong too and I always get compliments on it which is always good.

So those were my favourites from September! Nothing mind blowing, although there were a few newbies on here.

What were you loving throughout September? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and have a lovely weekend!

May ’16 Favourites

It’s June and it’s also a hella exciting month! Oh God… Did I really just say hella?! Anyway! More to come as to why it is exciting in a couple of days time. πŸ˜› It’s also mine and Dane’s three year anniversary on the 8th, yay! Of course, more into that next week.

However, it is once again time to share my favourites from the previous month, and boy was it hard to narrow it down to five! For once I actually struggled to decide, but eventually I found my favourites, which I’m sharing with you today.

 photo May Favs_zpsteoddxyt.jpg

  • Johnson’s Bedtime Baby Bath (link)

Okay I know this is meant to be for babies, but there is something to me that is really comforting about Johnson’s original baby bath, as well as the bedtime one. Every time I have used the bedtime one before bed I have slept really early, and had a great nights sleep! So it doesn’t just work for babies, obviously. It’s just going to a real treat to keep using, as whilst I love using Twilight bath bomb by Lush before bed, I find this is a nice cheaper version that won’t break the bank.

  • Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer (link)

I am loving the Bourjois primers at the moment, the luminous one being the one out of the two (the other is the matte one) that I’ve been using pretty much everyday throughout May. Sadly it’s not pretty much run out, which is the only thing I am disappointed about, because at Β£10.99 a pop it’s a lot to fork out every month. I did however get this and the matte one on the 2 for Β£14 offer in May. Well I wish I had bought more as these are amazing primers, dare I say better than Benefit POREfessional? They really do matte my skin and this one leaves me with a nice healthy looking glow. You don’t need a lot either to get a matte affect. I just love it, but I think I’ll be waiting until another offer comes up where I can feel okay with splashing out Β£11… Still, it’s cheaper than Benefit! πŸ˜›

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in shade Redrum (link) (review can be read here)

I love my Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks, that is a fact and everyone I know, knows this! I wear them quite often and every time I do I always get compliments. This was one of my recent purchases and oh my, do I love it. It might be my favourite shade to date and out of this and Scorpio, I find myself wearing this one more. It’s a gorgeous Marilyn Monroe red shade, perfect for any time of year. I get nothing but compliments on it, and since recently buying Jeffree Star’s white liquid lipstick shade Drug Lord, I’ve been mixing it with all my liquid lipstick to create my own shades! I recently tried it with Redrum and it looks just like Doll Parts! So pleased!

  • Lush Love and Light Hand Cream (link) (review can be read here)

Now this is a hand cream I have come to love when I first bought it, and then when the winter months came in and my hands were really bad, I grew to dislike it due to the fact it wasn’t nourishing my hands as much as I wanted and hoped that it would. However, I began using this again at the start of May and my hands looked beautiful and soft. I was so damn happy! I popped some in a little pot and started taking it with me to work to use after washing my hands. Towards the end of May though my hands have started to look rough again… I don’t know if it’s due to the hand cream not working as well as it did at first, or due to something else. Either way I am disappointed… I love what this hand cream did for my hands again, but I won’t be buying a pot ever again.

  • DKNY MY NY Eau de Parfum (link)

I can’t even remember how long I’ve owned this for now… Must be three or so years now, gosh I feel old! I remember to this day my mom buying me the huge 100ml bottle as it was on an offer, and I’m probably only just halfway through it now. This is a strong scent and one you don’t need a lot of. It isn’t the nicest DKNY scent I have had, but it isn’t awful either. I just use it for work these days, and I get NOTHING but compliments on it! Which is always a good thing. The only thing I dislike about it is how huge the bottle is. It JUST about fits in my handbag, which isn’t exactly huge. It’s a lovely scent though, and perfect for the summer months that are looming.

So those were my five favourite beauty products this month!

What did you enjoy using throughout May? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time take care all, and I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

Beauty Blogger Tag

some_text

Image taken from weheartit.com

Good morning, I hope you are all well! It is the start of a new week, and I can’t believe how quick May is going by already. Towards the end of April I was tagged by my wonderful friend and fellow blogger Kirsty over at Cosmetics Beauty Rainbow to take part in the beauty blogger tag. I felt loved, and it’s only now am I getting around to giving this tag a go myself!

some_text

Image taken from weheartit.com

1. What is your signature makeup style?
Well considering I only wear lipstick… A strong bold lip colour is always my signature look. Everyone always comments about how I wear dark shades like my reds, dark pinks, and purples. Can never say no to a Marilyn Monroe red shade, or a hot pink. My favourite lipstick brand to rock are Jeffree Star Cosmetics and MAC Cosmetics.

2. Have you ever made an embarrassing beauty blunder? And what was it?
Probably back in the day when I wore thick black eyeliner and eyeshadow! I was a total emo kid, and I thought it looked amazing. What annoys me is that I got bullied for my “panda eyes” and when I stopped wearing it, everyone started to rock it again! GRR! The same happened when I was in my early teens, I would wear blue lipstick and everyone picked on me. Now what is everyone wearing??? POINT PROVEN!

3. What is your favourite makeup brand?
MAC Cosmetics and Benefit for “high-end”.

Bourjois and NYX for “high street”.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics for “indie”.

4. When did you start wearing makeup?
When I was fourteen/fifteen I really started to experiment with make up. I rocked dark green, red, black, dark purple, and blue denim coloured eyeshadows with thick eyeliner. I didn’t wear much when it came to lip products… Probably a clear lip gloss.

5. Why did you start wearing makeup?
I think it was mostly based on what I would have seen in magazines, or on singers/celebrities. Avril Lavigne and Green Day were big inspirations on my make up when I was a teenager… Oh dear I was just an emo kid. πŸ˜›

6. Are you more high-end or high street (drugstore) when it comes to beauty products?
I’m a bit of both to be honest… I probably own more high-end than high street. A lot of my high street stuff I buy and then think, “meh I could have paid a little more for something better.” It depends though. I definitely prefer high end though to be honest.

7. Who’s your makeup icon?
I don’t have one to be honest. I am my own makeup icon. πŸ˜‰

8. How do your prep beauty wise for a first date?
I used to just put on a bit of primer, translucent finishing powder, and usually Rebel lipstick by MAC as it was my favourite when it came to dating. However, on my second date with Dane I wore zero make up, because that is me. I don’t wear make up, so why do myself up all the time?

9. Is there a certain perfume you wear that brings back a memory?
Angel by Thierry Muglar. It reminds me of my childhood. I remember when my mom first bought this and I loved the smell of it. It reminded me of her and holidays. She bought me a bottle of my own when I was a teenager and since then I have bought my own bottle and had it refilled once. I don’t actually wear this as much as I used to, but I still adore it. It’s one of my favourite scents. The same can be said for Alien by Thierry Muglar too, which reminds me of Dane. I wore it on our first date together and he commented saying how lovely I smelt. I wear it for every anniversary we’ve had so far together too. He always says how it remembers it from our first date and that really makes me smile. πŸ™‚

10. Whats the best bit of beauty advise you got and who gave you it?
Probably everything my mom has ever told me! Never to pluck my eyebrows is my main one. I have big, thick full eyebrows and everyone teased me for it when I was growing up. Now people are jealous because they don’t have any. πŸ˜›

Now here are the questions that Kirsty came up with for us to answer! πŸ˜€

1. If you had to choose one product you couldn’t live without for the rest of your life what would it be?

Definitely lip balm. I love having soft lips and even if I couldn’t have a lipstick to wear I would still want a nice tinted lip balm of course. My Korres Lip Butter to be precise.

2. What is your favourite “go to” blush product?

I don’t wear blush… :’)

3. Do you follow a specific skincare routine either day/ night or both and what products do you use?

I follow a really specific skincare routine most days. I wash my face, apply toner, eye gel, moisturiser, primer, translucent powder, clear brow gel, lip balm, and a lipstick or gloss. πŸ™‚

4. What do you think of the current liquid lipstick trend?

I FUCKING LOVE IT! I am definitely a liquid lipstick addict. πŸ˜›

5. Have you discovered any new/ different beauty brands recently?

I’ve recently purchased my first NYX goodies! Two lip glosses to be exact and I love them so much. I want to buy more. WAH! πŸ˜›

6. How do you apply your base products, do you prefer to use your fingers, beauty blender, brush or another applicator?

I apply my primer with my fingers. I don’t see the point in using a brush. I do of course use a powder brush to apply my translucent powder.

7. What is your favourite eyeshadow palette, past or present?

I don’t use eyeshadow anymore sadly. I never owned one either when I did wear eye make up. My favourite eyeshadows were by MAC Cosmetics, and Barry M. One palette I wanted for years was the Aquataenia by Lime Crime… But let’s not discuss Lime Crime here… πŸ˜›

8. Do you have a nostalgic beauty product that you would always use in your younger years?

Miss Sporty clear mascara, which I still use to this day on my eyebrows!

9. Your favourite high-end product?

MAC Cosmetics lipstick, specifically the shade Rebel.

10. What is your favourite eyeliner product and do you have any tips to achieving the perfect winged liner?

Β I don’t wear eyeliner, but one of the best I tried was by Collection 2000. πŸ™‚ I don’t have any tips either I’m afraid… Sorry.

So that was the beauty blogger tag! I’m so pleased that Kirsty tagged me into this as I haven’t been tagged for quite a long time, and due to that I feel loved. ^_^

I tag everyone who reads this to give it a go! I won’t make up any of my own questions as I’m crap at stuff like that. πŸ˜›

Make sure to let me know in the comments down below if you give it a go yourselves.

Until next time, take care all and have a lovely week.

What You See Is What You Get – What to Expect From There Might Be Coffee

 photo IMG_3417_zpsmh3ezuxt.jpg

Woohoo a picture I have wanted to use on my blog for ages and now I FINALLY CAN! I also understand this isn’t an amazing picture due to glare on my glasses, but I don’t care. πŸ˜›

I was inspired by Charlotte over at Discovering Charlotte to write this post up today. I have never really written a post stating what I talk about on my blog, and what themes and topics often come up.

First of all I am a mixture of a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blogger, but with a twist.

I don’t wear a full face of make up, only opting for lipstick, and a bit of translucent make up to control my oily t-zone. OH and maybe some nail varnish if I can be bothered.

I wear whatever I want, as I don’t follow trends. I often opt for cute dresses, skirts, and baggy jeans, and hoodies. I wear anything that I feel and look comfortable in. I do the odd look book post, but I do want to do more this year.

Lifestyle is probably what I focus on the most, and I usually talk about what a massive geek I am. I love reading comic books and manga, watching anime, Disney movies, and Marvel movies. Some of my favourite things are Deadpool, Lady and The Tramp, Spirited Away, Bee & PuppyCat, Pokemon, and more. Speaking of which, I am a massive Pokemon nerd. I don’t think I can label anymore geeky things.

Alongside being a nerd, I am sort of obsessed with pretty much everything and anything Japanese related. The culture, the language, the food, everything. So Japan often pops up on my blog.

However as the months go on this year, I wish to add more topics and themes to my blog. I’m talking about 5 here that I really want to do this year!

1. I want to write more list posts. I love reading them, and I’ve found from jotting up rough posts over on Microsoft Word, I really love to write them too. Watch this space for more of these to come.

2. More reviews! At one point in the year I want to do a lipstick review every other day, as I probably don’t have enough to do one every day. πŸ˜›

3. Look book posts. I definitely want to write more of these as I used to write them up all the time, but I just never seemed to have time during my time at university, or I dressed like shit and couldn’t be arsed to dress up. Story of my life people.

4. A new category added to what sort of things I write about… But I can’t talk about this right now. It’s all top-secret!

5. I want to finally start doing YouTube videos, vlogs to be precise. These I hope to start in May, maybe in June. I’d do weekly vlogs of me doing my day-to-day stuff. I don’t have a very exciting life, so I’m unsure if I’d do any good at it or not… But we shall see!

I also really want to have a new series to my blog about mental health, and doing mini interviews with fellow bloggers who have various different mental health conditions, from anxiety, depression, BPD, eating disorder, OCD, schizophrenia, etc. You get the idea! I don’t know when I’ll be doing these, but I hope to do them soon. πŸ™‚

Other than that, these are just some of the things I do now, and hope to do more of in the future.

What do you want to read more of on my blog? What kind of blog do you run? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time all, take care and have a great weekend!

March ’16 Favourites

Hello April, where did you come from? This year really is flying by, and quite frankly I’m pretty happy about that right now… But I can’t say why yet. πŸ˜› SORRY (not sorry)!

 photo March Favs_zpsjoz3h9xo.jpg

  • Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! EDP (link)

I bought this perfume nearly two years ago when I went to Bristol for a long weekend for our first anniversary. I had wanted it for ages, so when I picked it up for a bargain I was super pleased! It’s a lovely light scent, which lasts agggges! I’ve been using it loads at work lately for the transfer from winter to spring. The bottle itself is beautiful, but due to how clunky the lid is, I often take it off when I take it out with me. I would recommend this scent for anyone, as I find alongside Decadence it’s one of the nicest scents.

  • Antipodes Deliverance Hand Cream (link)

My friend Poppy bought me this for Christmas, which I only recently received from her. It’s a gorgeous light hand cream, that really packs a punch! Lately my eczema on my hands is REALLY bad and this hasn’t worked on its own. However when I used this alongside my eczema cream it works like a charm. It smells beautiful and zesty too, which I love for when the summer comes around.

  • Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn Blood (link)

I bought this liquid lipstick from my friend Claire (from memory) in February, and I really do love this shade! I’d had my eye on it from the day Jeffree Star announced it, but was never able to pick myself up a tube due to it being forever sold out! I bought it from Claire (check her blog out here) for Β£10! BARGAIN! I don’t wear it alllll the time, but I do love it when I do. It applies like a dream, and lasts ages. OH and it doesn’t stain either. I’ll be reviewing this very soon.

  • Snow Fairy Shower Gel

How can this not be on my favourites? Like every month of the year!? I’ve been using this every other day when I fancied using it, and I always forget what an amazing shower gel it is. It smells gorgeous, the scent lasts ages, and my skin always feels and looks gorgeous after use too. I just need to get a body lotion of this now, and I’ll die happy. πŸ˜› I still have my one 1kg bottle of this, as well as two 500g bottles. So I think I have enough to last me until Lush bring this out again in October. πŸ˜›

  • Miss Sporty Clear Mascara (link)

I have used his clear mascara on and off since I turned 14, so well over ten years now! I’ve used it on my eyelashes, as well as on my eyebrows, but I just use it for the latter now. I have big eyebrows (as you can probably see…) and it can be hard to keep them in place sometimes, so I use this clear mascara to keep them in place. It’s cheap as chips at just Β£2.99 too! It helps keep my brows in place all day, so it can’t get any better than that.

Those are my favourite beauty products from March! What products did you love using throughout March? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all, and here’s to April! πŸ˜›

February ’16 Favourites

Honestly it’s March already? 2016 sure is flying by already and I don’t know if I like it or not. In a month it’ll soon be my boyfriends 27th birthday, and that means spoiling him again… Oh dear. xD

This months favourites weren’t hard to think of, as I have been loving LOADS of products lately, especially anything that helps keep my hands, and lips soft and smooth. They’ve been rather dry with the cold weather lately, so those have been a priority.

So, here are my favourites for last month.

january20favs_zpsamfukj7c

  • Percy & Reed Splendidly Silky Moisturising Shampoo. (link)

This was a purchase I made recently, and after only owning it for over a week, I already love it to bits! I bought this from work and got 20% knocked off of it with my discount, so it only cost me Β£12 something. It leaves my hair feeling lovely and moisturised, as well as soft. It also leaves my hair smelling gorgeous! My only problem with it is the drawings that Percy & Reed use… They women drawn are just so damn skinny and I fucking hate it. I mean, come on guys, they look anorexic! :S

  • Eurax Cream. (link)

I know this isn’t like… A major beauty product but it has really done my hands the world of good this month! I left this at my boyfriends back at the start of the year, and only recently retrieved it. I use this on my hands before I leave the house for work, during my shift, and in the evenings at home if I need some intense moisturisation. I have my eczema prescription in my handbag, it’s been there nearly a week now and I am STILL in need of collecting it! Don’t think I ever will at this rate. Either way, for the time being this hand cream is doing me the world of good, and is a definite must have if you have really dry skin.

  • Lush Rose Jam Bubbleroon. (link)

Obviously there isn’t a picture of this because I’ve used it but I just had to mention it this month, as I have really loved using it. I’m not a fan of rose scents, I am not a floral scent girl. I love my sweet smells, and mint scents. I got this in a gift set for my birthday, and my initial thoughts were, “Urgh I hate the smell of rose…” but when I used it in the bath it was actually a subtle sweet scent, and didn’t smell anything like roses to me. It of course left me feeling soft and smooth, so I will definitely repurchase this in the future!

  • Lush Snow Fairy Solid Perfume.

Apologies on no link for this item, but it was an item that came out in the Lush Kitchen so it was only limited edition. I LOVE Snow Fairy, have done since I discovered it in 2008. I owned a solid perfume of Snow Fairy years ago when I was a uni student and I loved it, but like all things Lush it ran out of date and had to be thrown away. Whilst I was on holiday I missed my chance to buy the perfume, so I didn’t miss my chance at picking this up! I like using this at work if I want something light to apply to my neck, wrists, and inside my elbow. I haven’t as of yet received any compliments on it, but I don’t care. I love it!

  • Organique Lip Balm in Cherry Candies. (link)

This is a lip balm that I picked up when I went to the Organique blogger event I attended this month (link), and it’s one that lives on my bedside table. I’m not a fan of using lip balms that involve me sticking a possibly germ sodden finger into the tub and then smother it all over my mouth, germs included. So I use it around the house. Although I really like this lip balm, I haven’t found it to be as moisturising as others I own. I’m hoping to review this soon mind. The best things about this is that it smells and tastes like cherry drops. Nom!

So those were my favourites from February! What products were you loving last month? Make sure to let me know inΒ  the comments down below.

Until next time all, take care.
