FAVOURITES: February 2015

I’ve had so many things that I’ve loved this month it was a struggle to narrow it all down! I’ve had a decent amount of time to myself for a change so I’ve been indulging in a bit of me-time (aka Netflix time) and some pampering so I think this month’s favourites definitely reflect that.

The big favourite for me this month has been Community which I finally started watching after it was added to Netflix. I’m not even ashamed to say that I finished all of the current series in under ten days and am waiting not so patiently for the next series to start on the 17th of March. It’s funny in so many different ways, spanning across pretty much every genre (seriously) and jam packed with pop culture references. I’ve been recommending this to anyone and everyone! I enjoyed it so much more than I would have expected – including the “gas leak” year – and keep giggling to myself at some of the scenes. Six seasons and a movie? Yes please!

Something else that has been getting a fair bit of love from me is the almond hand and nail cream from The Body Shop, I keep a big tube of this on my bedside table to use day and night. Not only does it smell delicious but it works. My hands are no longer disgustingly cracked and painful, plus my nails are getting stronger by the day. Amazing.

I’ve been reaching for the kettle a fair bit too, what with the cold weather, so in an attempt to cut down on my sugar consumption I’ve been opting for fruit teas instead of my usual morning brew. One that I’ve been loving this month is the Raspberry Burst from Clipper that I picked up in Tesco a few weeks ago. It’s not the cheapest in terms of bags per box but it’s full of berry deliciousness that I can’t get enough of!

My rose gold obsession is continuing and lately this statement necklace from House of Fraser* has been adorning my neck quite a few times. Despite my love for rose gold I only have quite dainty pieces so it makes a nice change to my typical choice. It’s a beautiful addition to any outfit and I’m sure I’ll be wearing it on numerous occasions.

At Christmas my boyfriend’s sister gave me a bottle of Zara’s Gold perfume and I’ve been totally blown away by just how beautiful it is. With hints of caramel, strawberry and vanilla you’d expect it to be sickeningly sweet but the slight musky tone makes it so luxurious and it’s fast become one of my favourite scents. I think I’m going to buy one of the bigger bottles in the future, but for now this miniature one is ideal for keeping in my handbag.

Finally, the hair oil of dreams. The Frizz Ease Dream Curls Enhancing Oil* was sent to me as a thank you for hosting my recent giveaway with John Frieda and as I was already a big fan of their Frizz Ease range I had some very high expectations of this product. Luckily, they were met. This oil is so lightweight yet incredibly moisturising and does a fantastic job of taming my frizz and defining my curls without the need for excessive styling. I’m quickly making my way through the tube and will definitely be purchasing again and again! I can’t recommend the Frizz Ease range enough as it works some serious wonders for my hair and has done for many years now.
