February Favourites

Hey guys! February is one of my favourite months with it being my birthday month so I’ve been rather busy recently, hence this super late post (sorry! better late than never right!)

So without further ado here are my monthly favourites.

BEAUTY

MAC Verve

Verve is one of my everyday go-to’s for when I’m in a rush or feeling lazy. It gives my lips a “my lips but better” shade whilst making them look really plump, also the formula is just so creamy and hydrating on my lips. I think this may be one of the first lipsticks that I actually finish.

ELF Baked Blush Peachy Cheeky

I rediscovered this blush this month. On my skin tone this product is definitely not a blush but the most beautiful highlight, it kind of reminds me of Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight in the sense that it has a really subtle, non-shimmery finish. If you are around my skin tone or darker I would really recommend picking this up for an everyday highlight or on a fairer skintone this would look great as a peach blush.

Barry M Nail Polish in Dark Side of Shroom

*Sigh* this colour of nail varnish is just amazing. It’s a purple with a grey undertone making it very different to anything I’ve seen before. It’ll suit all skin tones and immediately makes you look fashion forward. Also with the daylight curing topcoat you can get a great manicure that lasts a good week.

FASHION

Skagen Rose Gold Bracelet Watch

My lovely boyfriend bought this BEAUTIFUL watch for me and I am absolutely in love with it, it’s so pretty and looks great on smaller wrists. It immediately makes me look more put together when paired with a crisp shirt/ knit.

Dune Trish Boots (black leather)

I raved about the grey suede version of these boots a few months ago and I managed to get the black leather version before it went out of stock. These boots have a classic over the knee cut, fit really well around my slim calves and are very comfortable for everyday use.

American Apparel Dylan Trench (Cocoa Bean)

I love wearing trench coats in the Spring/ Summer and I have been loving this blush tone that I’ve been seeing everywhere. Having searched high and low for a blush trench I’d almost given up hope but when I  spotted this coat on one of my favourite style Vloggers Jenn Im from Clothesencouters I knew I had to buy it no matter what. The colour is absolutely stunning, sort of a dusty pink (it looks darker in real life than in the image on the website) and I cannot wait for it to warm up in London so I can wear it!

SNACKS

Mr Kipling Orange & Cranberry Oat Slice

I’m forever snacking and this month they were giving free samples of these oat slices at work. Being the greedy pig that I am I grabbed about four boxes. These are the perfect snack to have with a cuppa when the 4pm hunger pangs/ sweet tooth strikes. YUM

Soreen Chocolate Squidgy Cake Minis

Something else I’ve been loving are these new cake minis from Soreen. These mini cakes have the classic squidgy Soreen texture with a hint of chocolate. It’s not too sweet and a relatively healthy snack!

  1. That Barry M Nail Polish in Dark Side of Shroom looks amazing! I love the name too, hah!
    And those Dune Trish Boots look so classy – I never know if I could pull off super tall boots since I’m not that tall. I do have ones that just go up below my knees.

    1. I know right it’s such an amazing colour and so “on trend”. I’m only 5 foot 1 so have a hard time with boots too, these come up just over my knees so don’t shorten my legs 🙂 Jay x
