So it’s that time of the month again. No, for any men out their reading this whose cursors are currently hovering over the X button, I’m not talking about that time of the month, I’m talking about monthly favourites time. Duh!
It’s also that time of the month that every man and their dog professes to not believe how quickly this month’s gone by. And not one to buck a bandwagon, I really can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by, and in all honesty, I’m not that happy about it. February’s been a good’un for me, so I wouldn’t mind it lingering on for a little longer.
Anyway, before I ramble on to March Favourites time, here’s what I’ve been loving the most this month. And I emphasise most as I’ve made a real effort to narrow them down to just a few.
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer balm in Demure – Luckily, for the length of this post, I’m not going to go into a full on ramble on this as I have a blog post coming up soon all about the balms. So I will be very short and (probably not so) sweet and say that it is nude, natural, everyday lip perfection. The end. Done!
Ambient lighting blush in Dim infusion
– I have a full blog post professing my love/fan-girling over this product here
Dove Refresh + Care Dry shampoo – I hate washing my hair. Not in a trampy way – well, it probably is slightly trampy – but I have pretty long, thick hair…and a lot of it so in all honesty, washing it it just a massive pain in the
arse neck. This dry shampoo is my new favourite. It’s much less white and chalky than other dry shampoos (Batiste, I’m look at you!) it really refreshes the hair without making it sticky or clogged up with product. It also smells lovely too, always a winner…
Essie Luxedo – My new go-to shade. It’s a dark plummy/purply shade (descriptive words are clearly not my strong point) that’s slightly less harsh as black, but definitely as chic. Chic, I bloody hate that word…
Blistex Intensive Moisturiser – This is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s not pretty, you’re not going to be featuring in your fancy, dreamy pinterest-esque bedside table pictures…but it just works. I was ill recently (man-flu) and suffered from really dry, cracked lips (sexy) and this healed them in a day. It worked better than my Nuxe Reve de Miel, better than my Burts Bees…it basically was the only thing that got my lips back to normal.
The Blogger/Vlogger favourites. Always a toughie for me as I have many
blogs and channels that I check out daily, but here are the ones I’ve been particularly loving this February…
– I’ve always loved her blog and her appearances on Lily Pebbles and Anna’s video’s so I was a very happy girl when she started her own. And let’s face it, look at that hair!!
(talking of hair, she also made the world aware of the Oribe texturising spray dupe in the form of Charles Worthington’s texturising spray. LOVE
Essie Button –
Oh I bloody love Estee’s channel, I do. She’s just so real (apologies for cheesy as f**k phrase) honest, and quite frankly hilarious. She’s one that really gets her character across on screen and her product recommendations are always bang on too. Ultimately, I just want to be her friend. And yes, that makes me incredibly sad/the world’s biggest loser. (SorryNotSorry)
Cath in the city – This is one of the fashion blogs I pretty much read every day. She’s stunning, shows real personality in her writing and also posts some cracking recipes too 🙂 She dresses quite classic with the odd quirky item or accessory. Personally I love that. So many fashion bloggers get carried away with trying to dress differently to ‘stand out’, generally resulting in outfits that really aren’t that wearable/accessible. Cath gets it just right, in my opinion. For what it’s worth (…probably not a lot)
A Fashion Fix – I love Hannah Crosskey’s blog as a constant source of outfit inspiration. She can be quite daring with her fashion sense at times – I definitely need to take a leaf out of her book – and always manages to own items that I all of a sudden, ‘need’. (Asos and Topshop skate shoes I’m looking at you!)
So I think that’s about it for my favourites – and I haven’t rambled into 2015, there’s a first for everything – I’ve had a really really nice February and can only hope that Beyonce month – I mean March – will be just as good.
What are you favourites from February? Any new products you’re loving, fallen back in love with some oldies? I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this post guys. As always, thanks so much for reading!
