February Favourites 2018

February’s favourites are representative of the things I enjoy most in life, beauty/makeup and music. I have been putting Morphe’s 25A Copper Spice palette through it’s paces and the heat/skin rash on my arms seems to have cleared up so I am now able to apply lotions and moisturisers again. February has been all about Shania, tickets for her NZ concerts went on sale and I have been singing along to her music a lot!

Onto this month’s favourites:

1. Revlon Fire & Ice Rollerball  – I got this rollerball in a Revlon set a couple of Christmases ago and only recently began to discover how much of a gem it is. In the same set there was a bottle of Fire & Ice perfume (long finished) but the rollerball scent is nicer and lasts all day. I spray body mist all over and apply the rollerball directly to my neck for an added layer of scent. This is travel friendly too which is great.

2. Morphe 25A Copper Spice Palette – This eyeshadow palette was a Christmas present from my brother and I had used it a few times but not properly tried more than a handful of shades. I was a little intimidated having 25 shades to choose from, I’m used to 12 or less. This palette is pretty much all I’ve been reaching for in February and it is great for everyday, work looks. The fourth row of shimmers are beautiful! My go to is to apply one of the lighter shades as a base, one of the many browns up into the crease and use my finger to apply one of the shimmers over top. The shades blend well and I can’t see myself getting sick of using this anytime soon.

3. Shania Twain T-shirt – I got this shirt as part of the Now album bundle I ordered last year and the quality of this t-shirt is lovely. The material is super soft and the sleeve length and the way this sits on me is perfect. I was missing a nice white t-shirt and this filled the gap. I also wore this when I bought Shania concert tickets earlier in the month!

4. The Body Shop English Dawn Gardenia Body Cream – The heat in summer makes my skin hot and itchy and for a while I couldn’t use anything on my arms after a shower because it would irritate the already dry skin. I am glad there has been some cooler weather lately and I can get back into my after shower routine. I purchased this body cream around Boxing Day and it is creamier than The Body Shop’s normal body butters – it feels velvety soft. The scent is floral and gorgeous and lingers for a long time (in a good way).

5. Mini golf – To celebrate Valentine’s Day my boyfriend and I played a game of mini golf. I had never played before but had always wanted to. I found a place that is open in the evening and we went after 8pm so the golf course was lit up with fairy lights and it looked so pretty. There were also bunnies hopping around throughout the game and they were adorable! Despite never having played before it was a close game, at the halfway point we were tied but in the end my boyfriend won by five points.

    I bet for some people (aka non makeup addicts) that Morphe palette could be the one do it all palette.

    You were a natural at mini golf! I think you should do a rematch to see if you can beat your boyfriend. 🙂

      I bet it could be, swap some of the browns for some taupes and roses/pinks and you’re set!

      We were tied at the half way point so it was only the second half I came unstuck. I’m sure there’ll be a rematch at some point 😛

    I didn’t know Revlon did perfumes? How cool! Was it just a limited edition thing? The Morphe palette looks lovely💕 I really want to try their palettes. I loved the look of the mini golf. Looked cosy & romantic x

      I’m pretty sure it’s a fragrance that has been around for years. The gift set was limited though. The Morphe palette is lovely, hope you get to try their palettes soon! I know a few bloggers who buy Morphe items on Beauty Bay. I want to go mini golfing again already lol xx

    There’s nothing worse than a heat rash! They always seem like they are never going to go away. I struggled with heat rashes on my legs at the beginning of summer.
    That Morphe palette looks absolutely stunning! It looks like the perfect palette to create daytime looks and take you through to the evening as well. 🙂 x

      My skin on my legs is super sensitive too! That’s the only thing I can put it down to because I’ve noticed since the weather has slowly started to cool down my skin is a lot better! You would love the Morphe palette!
