February Favourites


I never do regular monthly favourites; I forget to write down what I've been liking or even take notice as to what I reach for more often however, this month it feels I have been aware of a few products that I have suddenly found myself wanting to use everyday and I thought I would document them.

Space NK Life Ultimate Unwind Body Wash
This is supposed to smell of lime, green tea, cardamon and ginger but to me it just smells heavenly. Quite masculine (ish) and lemon-y (but not too lemony)-its the perfect combination of freshness and musky-ness and I could honestly smell it all day. Asides from its divine scent, it seems to do the job pretty darn well too.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
I bought this a week or two ago as I was in desperate need of a new concealer and had been hating the Collection Lasting Perfection more and more (sorry) as it was just so heavy and thick so I thought I would turn to this. Its a perfect light consistency, concealing any dark circles and actually making my skin look 10x better (something that the collection never did). I am a convert. 

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow
I have recently discovered my love for this after working out actually how to wear it. It is a gorgeous yellow champagne; it's quite a thick, gel like consistency (which is surprising when you see it in the crayon form) which, once blended out gives such a gorgeous highlight to the lids and a candlelight glow. I just use my finger to blend it out but you can also use it as a base for other shadows as it lasts a super long time and the colour is so versatile, it can be toned down or layered on for a bold gold. I have loved pairing this with highlighted cheekbones (using Benefit Highbeam which I totally forgot to photograph oops).

Kallo Rice Cakes
I used to hate rice cakes, like h.a.t.e them. I thought they were like eating cardboard (they still kinda are-but nice cardboard) but after recently discovering that they make the best snack ever, I have fallen in love. I like them with peanut butter, marmite, nutella; literally anything-give me a rice cake nd I'll be happy (its the small things ;) )

Kodaline-In A Perfect World

This has been my go to music choice of February-I LOVE All I want (I could listen to it for hours-but not the video-it makes me want to cry) and I like the variation between all their songs; like I've said previously, I associate music with different times/events and I know this will be remembered as my 'Early 2015' music. They're coming to Newcastle on the 16th and it makes me ridiculously sad to know a) I can't go and b) they'll actually be here but oh well.

I hope you are all well; I've had THE most productive weekend which has included making a pair of pyjama shorts (that will no doubt feature soon) and a lot of fruit eating (tied in with french, maths and other delights). The nights are getting ever lighter which excites me immensely as it means spring is nearly here, I even had my first hot cross bun yesterday which was, as usual, delish.
What have you been loving this month?

  1. The rimmel wake me up concealer really is amazing! It's immediately brightens your under eye....in fact I use a slightly lighter shade than my original skin tone so it brightens up even more. I've never tried the collection lasting perfection concealer. I'm going to give it a go but there are a lot of mixed opinions out there so I guess i'm just going to have to wait and see!

    1. I guess it just depends what you like but it was a little too heavy for me-very good for concealing spots though I guess!xx

  2. I haven't tried the Rimmel concealer yet, I think I might pick it up to add to the rotation. Love finding new music so I'm definitely going to check out Kodaline!
