So I’m a little late on my February favourites, but I’m silly and forgetful, and it’s only two days late, right?! February was a busy month for me, with a few trips, Valentines Day, my sisters birthday, and my boyfriend and I’s anniversary, there was a lot going on. This year is flying by, how is it March already? It really is true, time only seems to speed up as you get older.
This month I’ve been loving a jumper I got from New Look at the end of last month. It’s described as tan, but to me it’s a dark mustard colour, and I love it. It’s such a great colour for the wintery weather we’ve been having, and goes with my plethora of burgundy and denim clothing. Also it’s oversized and comfy. I do recommend for only £7.99.
I also started using a new liquid eyeliner. I do not get on with liquid eyeliner, I just can’t get the hang of making smooth clean lines, not wiggly uneven marks that look like a 5-year-old did it. However, I’ve been using the Eyeko London Fat Liquid Eyeliner, and it’s making things a whole lot easier! It’s essentially like a marker pen, and I love it! Granted I’m still not great at getting the flick right, but a Q-tip works wonders for fixing that.
I’ve been wearing a pair of boots I bought a couple years ago a lot. They’re black with a cute daisy print on them, and look so good with tights and floaty dresses. I’m pretty sure they came from the teen section at New Look, but my feet are quite small (and actually getting smaller – I’ve gone from a 5 to a 4, and am now verging on 3.5?!), which is actually something of a bonus, because kids shoes are a lot cheaper!
I’ve also discovered the magic of leave-in conditioner this month! I wish I’d picked some up years ago, I always thought it would make my hair appear greasy (probably due to a bad experience in my teens), but it’s like magic! I’ve been using Aussie’s Luscious Long Miracle Recharge Lightweight Conditioning Spray, and I’m in love. It makes my hair feel amazing, it smooths down the crazy frizz that is my ends, and it actually helps keep the curl in my hair. And it’s definitely not greasy!
My boyfriend got me my first ever Mac lipstick for Christmas. Yep, first ever! Obviously the only choice for colour was Ruby Woo! And it is beautiful. Also the smell reminds me of Cadburys mini eggs, which I love, and it’s super matte. My only complaint is if you try to reapply during the day, it get’s all chalky and clumpy and I hate that! I end up taking it off and reapplying which isn’t ideal. Still pretty though.
Also my boyfriend and I have a new-found obsession with cinnamon buns. I don’t know what made us start eating them, but now we can’t stop. Ross usually just eats them on the way home from the supermarket, but I wait till we get home and put them in the microwave for a few seconds. The icing melts and goes all gooey, which obviously improves the whole thing.
So there concludes my February favourites. Here’s to March!
I hope you had a lovely month,
