February has been a good month. A very good month indeed. Valentines day, my 18th birthday (finally) and a lovely week off from school all combined to make something altogether rather wonderful. Mainly, February has been so good because I've been able to spend it with the people that I love. But a few other things also played their part in adding a little bit of extra sparkle.
Victoria's Secret perfumes are divine. I do not tell a lie when I say that they are sent from the heavenly realms to bless our earth. I already have "Forbidden" which is easily my favourite perfume ever, but I was lucky enough to add Coconut Passion to my collection this month. I have my two best friends Kels and Maria to thank for this beauty that I got as part of an amazing birthday gift! It's not a serious scent (does that make sense?) just the kind of thing you spritz on before a day out shopping or at school.
A good month and late nights go hand in hand. And with late nights come dark circles. In my case at least. So the Nip and Fab CC Eye Fix has literally saved me lately. I'm not too sure whether it's meant to work as a concealer, but it certainly does for me. I have it in the shade medium and not only does it hide all signs of a heavy night but it also moisturises too.
I've actually had my Pandora bracelet since my 16th birthday but only recently have I got really into wearing it. And I mean really into wearing it. It's got to the point where if I don't have it on one day it feels a little odd. I think the main reason that I've become so obsessed is because I acquired four charms in a very short time span, which filled it out a bit and gave it the look I wanted. I got a little silver car charm for passing my driving test last month, an 18 charm on my birthday, plus the two beauties pictured above! On Valentine's my boyfriend gave me the flower (get it? Because boys usually give girls a bunch of flowers on V-Day?) and then he was lovely enough to also give me the beautiful dark blue one with silver stars for my birthday. Both are absolutely stunning. I'm a very lucky girl.
It's basically customary to post some kind of Lush product in my monthly favourites! In February I've been loving The Comforter Bubble Bar. I always go for the sweet scents at Lush and this is no exception. It produces a tonne of bubbles with just a tiny amount too! I break off a small piece every time I have a bath (I must have used it at least 5 times) and I still have quite a substantial amount remaining. If you like to smell like a sweet shop, this is the one for you.
This one was a tad hard to picture so I had to find something to represent it - Audio Books! In particular Russell Brand's "Revolution". I got it for free on Audible using one of those YouTube links that every beauty guru seems to give their viewers. The book is both thought provoking and hilarious, and as much as I would love to give a synopsis I don't think anybody except Mr Brand himself can explain his ideas. Just read/listen to it.
I got a MacBook Pro! And it is glorious. Glorious! It truly has made my life, in terms of school especially, a whole lot easier. It's so slick. That probably doesn't make sense but the way it runs is just slick. I've also been rather obsessed with using the app "Wunderlist" and connecting it between my phone and laptop, to have an electronic to-do list with me at all times. My productivity levels have been at an all time high. Did I say my MacBook was glorious?
Last and most definitely not least is my Blend-Active. My dad bought me this bad boy as part of my birthday present, as well as a gorgeous watch that warrants its own blog post! I'm obsessed with smoothies and "health foods" recently (shout out also to almond butter, another recent favourite). The Blend-Active just makes the whole smoothie process a lot less hassle and a lot less messy. It's my dream come true! My favourite smoothie this week has been frozen blueberry, almond butter, banana and spinach.
I hope you all had as wonderful a month as me!
