Gratitude Journal: February


/ noun
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

On the whole, 2017 hasn’t got off to the best start for me. There has been a mix of good and bad days but there are a couple of highlights which stand out for February. Valentine’s Day was lovely and super special and my amazing giveaway prize from Stash Matters arrived all the way from Canada! I am hoping March will be much more positive and I can get back into a proper routine.

Here’s what made me smile in February:

February 1: Having a shower and doing my makeup felt really good after a well earned sleep in.

February 2: Hot chips for lunch – yummy!

February 3: If you want something done do it yourself #girlboss

February 4: Frozen Fanta Blue Lemonade from McDonalds was delicious.

February 5: Finally up to date with Pointless Blog’s vlogs.

February 6: Loving my denim shorts I purchased last month.

February 7: Felt brave enough to wear my blue lipstick out of the house.


February 8: Painted my nails for the first time in two weeks. Used Bahama Mama by Essie which I bought a few weeks ago.

February 9: Got little tasks done that I’ve been meaning to do for a few days.

February 10: Una from The Saturdays released her debut album.

February 11: Finally making progress with empty products and cutting down on what I have. I don’t know why it takes me so long to collect empties.

February 12: I like today’s slightly grey/overcast weather.

February 13: Wore my bomber jacket for the first time.

February 14: My very first Valentine’s celebration. Had such a lovely day!


February 15: My giveaway parcel from Stashy arrived!

February 16: My copy of Una’s album has been dispatched.

February 17: Got compliments on my lip colour today – Wild Watermelon by Revlon.

February 18: Pretty Little Liars series seven started in New Zealand!

February 19: The sun was out after a few days of torrential rain.

February 20: It was a pie and hot chips for lunch day. Comfort food was the one today.

February 21: It’s nice getting to explore new places with someone special.

February 22: Cute texts from the boyfriend make me smile.

February 23: Bought some new clothes. Finally getting to add a cold shouldered piece of clothing to my wardrobe. I’ve been a fan of the trend for a while but I hadn’t found the right piece.

February 24: It’s hard to believe a month ago it was my birthday. Feeling reflective.

February 25: Kitty cuddles are so good and I got a lot today!

February 26: Watched The Chase for the first time in a week, how I missed this show.

February 27: Britney Spears’ Private Show perfume earning me the, “you smell nice” compliments from my boyfriend – score!

February 28: Waking up next to someone is a wonderful feeling!

What are you grateful for this month?

    Lovely post, Chanelle! It’s such a different take on a round-up of any kind. 🙂

    I also recently added a cold-shoulder piece to my wardrobe. It’s such a wonderful trend. 🙂 xx

    I am still in awe that you’re rocking the blue lipstick – go YOU! ❤
    Love your soft curls for Valentine's Day – and I'm so glad you're marking "firsts" in your relationship. It's important to remember these things!

      Haha thanks! 💙
      I love the curls too, I haven’t curled my hair since though lol. Firsts are important to me, if I’m experiencing something I haven’t before, I want good memories of it!
