February Favourites

My goodness! February has absolutely whizzed by.... don't you think?! I literally don't even know where the past few weeks have gone which is crazy because January honestly felt like the longest month e v e r. February has been a busy month of catching up, birthdays (mine included!), half term fun, fixing up our house (more on that soon!), selling like crazy on eBay and being ever so slightly absent from my blog.

But today I am back (yay!) and I am here to share some of my favourite products that I have been using in February. There's a real mix of stuff here this month. I am so excited to both share and document my picks because my tastes are definitely in a period of change at the moment.... and change is always good!

Old Skool Vans

If you know me, you'll know I am a Converse girl through and through but I received these classic black Old Skool Vans for my birthday and I flipping love them. These low top lace-ups have become my go-to everyday shoes over the past few weeks and not only do I love how comfy they are, I love they they go with pretty much everything. Let's face it, I'm a lazy dresser so I love not having to think about if things match!

Cloud Nine Wide Iron

I got these straighteners for Christmas and oh my goodness, how on earth did I survive without them?! My hair is super thick, unruly and frizz akin to Brian May if I didn't tame it with heat (not even joking here!) and these wide plate straighteners sort out my beastly mane in just a few minutes. Literally incredible. I love that they heat up and are ready to use within 20 seconds of being switched on and I love that the heat is distributed quickly and evenly. I get a super sleek finish every time with minimal effort which is truly amazing. These straighteners are a revelation and I am absolutely loving using them!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Twinkle 

Another birthday gift here! Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle and Coco Noir are two scents that I consider to be signature for me but over the past year or so I have been looking for something new so when I saw Marc Jacobs Daisy Twinkle arrive in the shops recently, I just knew I had to try it out! I mean, just look at that bottle.... it is stunning! The scent is sunny, youthful, playful and fresh. It reminds me of summer; fresh days with blue skies and sparkling sunshine. I cannot wait to take this bottle away with me as it is a perfect holiday scent! I have had so many lovely comments when I have worn it over the past few weeks, too!

I Heart Makeup - I ♡ Chocolate Rose Gold Palette

Late to the party but over the past month or so, I have well and truly succumbed to the rose gold trend. I know, I know! I spied this new rose gold palette in Superdrug recently and didn't hesitate in popping it in my basket. Not only is the metallic rose gold chocolate casing absolutely stunning, the products inside are amazing too! The shades are a mixture of pressed glitter and mattes both of which are heavily pigmented and easy to use.... I actually am in love. I am such a fan of TAM Beauty products, I haven't purchased one that I didn't adore! This is my first palette purchase from the I ♡ Chocolate range and it certainly won't be long until I buy more.

Maples and Whisky Candles

These Disney inspired scents from Maple and Whisky have been a more than welcome addition to my candle collection this month. If you have ever stayed at a Disney resort then you'll know that Disney lobby scents are a real  *thing* and yes, they are the actual best. I picked up the Jambo House and Animation Hall scents and they are such a lovely nod to the scents of Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Art of Animation Resort. I love having these candles out on display and the scent throw is incredible when they are lit. I have had quite a few "what is that lovely smell?" comments when people come to our home over the past few weeks! I'll definitely be purchasing more of these in the future!

What products have you been loving this month? I'd love to hear so please let me know in a comment below!

  1. I'm currently trying to find Old Skool Vans cheaper than RRP, and it ain't easy - they're so popular right now! They'll go with literally everything, and I've got a few cute new dresses that they'll go great with.

    That eyeshadow palette is amazing! I've seen a few of those ones in Superdrug, and I'm dying to give one a go. Pink-ish tones aren't usually my thing, but seeing them together in that colour selection has me rethinking it!

    You give me so much inspiration in these posts, love them!
