MONTHLY | February Loves
Did February not just fly past?! Keep reading to hear all the things I’ve been loving this past month..
I know we’re all like broken records, but seriously how is it March?! I’m super excited for Spring, more so than usual actually – I’m loving all the daffodils and Spring fashion & makeup!
Anyway, let’s get into what I’ve been loving throughout February.
Sharing The Love
Blog: I adore reading Beauty posts and they’re definitely up there with some of my faves (although let’s be honest, I love everything..) and one that I thoroughly enjoyed in February was this Glossier round-up one by the lovely Lily. This post is perfect for those who are yet to try Glossier and have no idea what to buy and it’s also a perfect post for someone, like me, who is looking to grow their Glossier collection.
Instagram: I’m very lucky to call Megan a friend of mine and her Instagram is beautiful, so if you don’t already follow her then you totally need to! I love how personal and perfect Meg’s feed is and this photo is one of my faves – it’s a simple photo that really catches your eye and I just love it.
Twitter: I have two favourites from Twitter for this month and the first one is this mini video – this cat is literally my spirit animal and I want it! My second favourite is this super cute photo of a dog who has flipping heart eyes guys!!
My Most Loved
Blog: Funnily enough, my most loved post in February was my January Loves post! Which makes me really happy because I’m so glad you guys are loving my new monthly addition. I love creating these and putting them together and hopefully I can keep it up throughout the whole year.
Instagram: I absolutely love all of the flower photos that I see on Instagram and I started posting my own this year – don’t ask why it took me so long because I literally have no idea.. – and this photo was my most liked in February! I’m constantly taking inspiration from beautiful accounts and trying to put my own spin on the gorgeous photos that I see. This bunch of flowers was super cheap (£3!) and has lasted over two weeks – how good is that?! I left them with Kieran’s grandma as a little thank you for having us stay (and obviously I also used them for this photo..).
Fave Beauty Product: Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights & Contour Pro Palette – I use the second shade in from the right on the bottom row for contouring!
Fave Skincare Product: Glossier Priming Moisturiser – I love this underneath my foundation or just as a simple base layer on a no makeup day.
Fave Song: Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing, Tori Kelly – this girl’s voice is I N S A N E!
Fave Food: Cherry Tomatoes – I have no idea what’s happened because I usually hate tomatoes, but I’m loving cherry tomatoes mixed in with the rest of my mediterranean veg that I have for lunch everyday in work!
Fave Restaurant: The Victoria Inn, Salcombe – I went here with some of my dad’s side of my family and the food was amazing! The sticky toffee pudding I would 100% recommend.
Fave Purchase: this Topshop bag (of course!)
Fave TV Show: Stranger Things 2 – we finally got round to watching it and I loved and hated it all at the same time, I definitely got creep’d out but I still wanted to know what was going to happen.
Fave Film: Sing – why it took me soo long to watch this film, I have no idea! I love it!
Fave Emoji: 🙄 the eye roll is literally me in an emoji and I think Kieran would agree with that!
Fave Game: Fight List (1&2) – obsessed, I play it everyday.
Fave Event: My sister’s 21st – I can’t believe she’s 21 now?!
Fave Place: Devon – I loove coming down to Devon and visiting family.
I had a lot of new Instagram discoveries in February, which is amazing. The first being Jasmin’s beautiful account! I completely adore all of her photos and the way she edits them – she’s an amazing photographer and I can only hope to be as great as her one day.
My second new Instagram discovery is the lovely Jennifer. How beautiful is she though?! I also love Jennifer’s style and this dress is absolutely gorgeous – I need it in my life!
My final Instagram discovery in February was Kelsey’s amazing food photography account. I just want to eat everything in her feed and I really love the dark and contrast-y way she edits all of her photos – I loove bright photos, but these dark and ‘moody’ looking photos will always be some of my absolute faves. Kelsey’s photography is amazing and I am obsessed with all of her lovely photos.
