Ummmmm, is it me or did February literally fly past before we even had a chance to realise it was February? I had quite an exciting month actually, what with Ellis’s birthday, Valentine’s Day and my Mummy’s birthday! Anyway, I’m ok with it being March because NYC in FIVE DAYS! Read on for my February favourites!
February Favourites – Lifestyle, blogger & beauty
My first favourite of last month was dinner at Smith’s in Wapping. I’ve been to the one in Ongar and this one a few years ago, so for Ellis’s birthday I decided to take him to the one in Wapping. If you’re a fish lover then Smith’s is an absolute must. The one in Wapping is lovely for more special occasions because it’s right on the river and the view is juuuuust beaut. We had the yummiest dinner before meeting some pals at The Shard. Dreamy.
Origins Rose Clay Mask
Since I love the Origins Charcoal mask so much, I thought it was time I tried the cute pink rose clay one. I popped into John Lewis with a gal pal and got a little sample to try which has actually already lasted me about 3 uses and there’s still some left. Verdict – I love it. I like the feeling of it setting and drying on my face because it feels like it’s really working and my skin is starting to feel clearer after a few uses.
Annie Jaffrey – eating less meat
I love finding new bloggers/YouTubers and I recently discovered Annie Jaffrey. She’s Swedish but I think she lives in Switzerland and aside from the fact that she’s gorge, she eats a plant based diet and her foodie/health videos are my favourite! As some of you might know from this now rather old blog post, I’ve tried to cut down my meat consumption over the last year 1 because I LOVE ANIMALS, 2 for the environment and 3 I just don’t really like it that much anymore. Watching Annie’s ‘What I ate today’ videos have only encouraged me to create more yummy things without meat and it’s been going pretty well.
Never Fully Dressed Khaki Dress
I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it on Never Fully Dressed’s Instagram then when I tried to buy it, it was sold out and I wanted it for Ellis’s birthday and I wasn’t sure if it was going to arrive in time but thankfully it did. It’s just such a good dress for when you want to be dressed up but don’t want anything too OTT or revealing.
Kiehl’s face oil
What can I say about this face oil? Basically, it smells so good it helps you sleep and makes you feel so relaxed before bed, your skin instantly feels nourished and hydrated and I wouldn’t even bother trying any other face oil because it’s honestly out of this world.
So they were my February favourites. Quite a short list this month but I’ve just been so looking forward to March and trying (and failing) to save money because in case you missed it, I’m going to NYC in 5 days!!!
What were your favourites throughout February? I would loveeeee to know!
