February Favourites

February Favourites

Hey everyone! I can’t believe how fast this year is whizzing by, we’re already two months in. February’s the month of lurvvve and even though I didn’t have a Valentine (boo! 👎) I still feel like lots of good things happened. The Cricket World Cup started, (I’m a bit of a secret cricket fan) but I’ve only been able to watch one game as they aren’t all shown on free-to-air TV. New Zealand has started off so well – go The Black Caps!

Anyway, enough about cricket and onto this month’s favourites:


Body Shop Shea Body ButterThe Body Shop Shea Body Butter – I received a Body Shop gift card from my brother for my birthday last month and my first purchase was one of their body butters. I’ve heard people rave about these and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! I got the 50ml size in case it irritated my skin and chose Shea because this is one of the butters especially for dry skin. I love the subtle, feminine scent and unlike some products, it smells the same after it has been massaged into the skin. I haven’t been using this everyday but I can definitely notice a difference when I do. I’m interested to see what it will be like for my skin in winter – if it lasts that long – I may have to repurchase!

Revlon Fire & Ice PerfumeRevlon Fire & Ice Perfume – This perfume was part of the Revlon gift set I received at Christmas. The scent is a tantalising blend of sheer florals, warm musk and exotic citrus notes. I loved the smell of this perfume when I tested it in the shop but after using it for the last two months I love it even more! The scent lasts so much longer than my other perfumes and can be worn as an everyday perfume or for special occasions.

Revlon Red Nail PolishRevlon Red (680) Nail Polish – Another item from the Revlon gift set I received at Christmas, I’m really putting them to good use! I painted my nails using this colour for my Valentine’s mani I posted over on Instagram *here*. What I loved was how smooth the formula was. I only needed to apply one coat as opposed to two like other polishes.

The Chocolate Lovers' DietThe Chocolate Lovers’ Diet by Carole Matthews – Reading is one of my absolute favourite things to do and I went to the library for the first time in ages this month. This was one of the books I checked out and I absolutely loved it. The characters felt real and the story line was believable, making the book hard to put down at times. I won’t spoil it for anyone but there is a happy ending!

The blurb from the back of the book:

“Lucy thought she had got her happily ever after with the gorgeous Aidan but things aren’t turning out the way she had hoped they would. But she’s not the only member of The Chocolate Lovers’ Club with problems. Autumn ‘s new boyfriend has yet to meet her parents, Nadia’s husband has sworn he’s given up gambling but she’s finding that hard to believe, and Chantal is doing all she can to save her marriage. It’s not surprising that these girls are going to need a lot of chocolate to see them through the challenges that lie ahead…”


Hotel of Mum and DadHotel of Mum and Dad is a British series that shows couples who live at home moving out together for the first time. I know in Britain a second series has been made but I have only seen series one so far and I hope series two gets aired otherwise, hello YouTube! I love seeing what each couple spends their money on and if they can survive the week or,
“if they’ll return to the hotel of mum and dad,” (said in my best Nick Grimshaw voice).


Music1. Charli XCX ft. Rita Ora – Doing It

2. Ariana Grande – I’ve heard Ariana’s singles and always adored how stunning her voice is but this month I decided to listen to her albums on Spotify and they are so good! Favourite tracks: Hollywood Avenue, Baby I, Love Me Harder, One Last Time, Why Try, Break Your Heart Right Back and Just a Little Bit of Your Heart.

What have you been loving this month?
