February favorties

Better late than never! Life's been rushing right before my eyes lately, I can't even bring myself to believe that we are already three months into this year. February in a nutshell was stressful, new, exciting. It was defiantly a transition from the relaxed January into the full on feeling of starting year 11 and making the move to a new school. But over all I enjoyed the ride even with the ups and downs. This is what I have been loving during the month of February, enjoy.

Hair and Body


So I have a lot of hair, and I actually mean like an abnormal volume of locks on my head. And sometimes it does get pretty hard to tame. I saw this on the world of instagram and after doing a bit of research on it I thought I would give it a try. I was instantly captivated with the ingredients, full of nourishing oils for your hair. I've been using this regally for the last week and a bit and I can see my hair becoming much smoother and healthier already. 

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter
I initially bought this for an eye make up remover as the new mascara that I am using is a waterproof one, but it has become a full face cleanser for me lately. I like to use this when I come home from school on a wet face cloth to remover all of the makeup before doing a workout. I generally wash my face with just water, then proceed to use the cleanser and then once more with water just to make sure that I get everything off. This product is great for sensitive skin like mine, and it really helps soothe the skin.

The Body Shop Moringa Body Milk
This is defiantly for all you floral scent loving people out there. I've been loving this mainly for the fact that it feels so light when you put it on and leaves your skin feeling super smooth and hydrated.

Lush Cupcake face mask
This has become my saviour this month. With all of the added stress my skin has really taken a toll and I don't know where I would be without this face mask. I went into lush looking for a mask that would help my skin and as soon as I mentioned wanting a face mask to help treat your typical teenage breakout the shop assistant did not hesitate to recommend me Cupcake. I would defiantly say that this is a must have, I use it 1-2 times a week and my skin felt so much better after just one use.

Makeup

I love Tanya, so it's only natural that I love her new Lipgloss range too. I purchased the shades Vampire Kiss and Picnic in the Park and I absolutely love both. The Vampire kiss is a great red shade that isn't too deep but also not too bright, perfect for adding a bit of colour to a black outfit. Picnic in the Park has been my go to everyday lip colour as the pink is quite subtle but still visible.

L'Oreal eyeshadow palate
This palate in general has been my go to this month, but generally just lots of nude-y colours is what I have been loving lately. 

Fashion

I wrote a whole blog post about this, I'm obsessed. I think that tartan can look great paired with plain pieces- especially monotones of black and white. 

Contradictions
I am loving the idea of contradicting pieces. Something about someone wearing a very feminine dress with dirty sneakers is so infatuating. 

Natural colours
Nude and white colours are so refreshing from my usual black attire, it feels like I'm doing a cleanse when I decide to strip back my fashion right to the basics and opt for earthy tones that are soft on the eyes.

Food

This stuff has become a quick obsession and I cannot stress to you how much I do love it. Oh and did I mention that it is good for you?

Quest Bars
Anyone that knows me knows that these are an everyday food for me. I buy them literally by the box and run out of them in a matter of days. I can honestly say that I would prefer to have the chocolate chip cookie dough bar rather than anything else in this world. And any of you who have quest bars, you would be like me and appreciate when you get a good chunk in your bar- as sad as this may sound when I get a good chunk it makes my day just that little bit better.

People

Youtuber & Blogger
This month I'm loving someone who has both a youtube and blog and that is the lovely Tanya Burr. Tanya is just a bundle of joy who I look forward to reading her posts and watching her videos. If you haven't discovered Tanya yet I would defiantly recombined but leave yourself time for endless scrolling and watching!

Well that's it for this month! Heres to a fabulous March,
