February has really flown past, I can’t believe I am making this post again already. I’ve done a bit of shopping this month so unlike January’s Favourites these are all things I have brought throughout the month. Next month is going to be a bit more of a quiet-money saving month… well until the 21st when I go to the Harry Potter Studio Tour! Let’s begin before I start obsessing over Harry Potter to you guys!
This month, in a bid to stop biting my nails, I have been loving painting them. I didn’t really have any nail varnishes so I popped down to Superdrug and picked up these Barry M beauties. I went for Strawberry Ice Cream and Berry Ice Cream because I wanted soft, subtle colours that would work well with all of my clothes. They are both super pretty and last really well with a clear topcoat. The Berry shade needs 2 coats to reach a good colour whereas the Strawberry needs 3 but it is so worth it! I also remembered I had some nail varnishes as a Christmas Present. They just came in a gift set from Wilkos but this silver shade is amazing! So pretty and sparkly and only really needs one coat. I have also been loving this Clay Time Purifying Face Mask from Wilkos. It is a pretty nice sized tub for only £3. It makes a nice weekend pamper treat and really does make my face feel that little bit softer. Deffo a must for pampering on the cheap.
I got this pack of nail decals from my Glitterati Secret Santa at Christmas and only got around to giving them a try this month. They are so cute and so easy to use so I just had to buy some more sets! You get about 100 nail decals in a pack so between the one I already had and the 2 I brought I should be okay for quite sometime. I went for some simple black cats (which have sold out online) and some super cute unicons, cats, bunnies and tiaras! The work kinda like tattoo transfers and can actually be used on skin if you want. I have found a new obsession.
These two cuties were one of my valentines day presents to myself. They are from a lovely litter Etsy shop called Ember Candle Co and these were a special valentines day duo in a lovely strawberries and cream sent. I don’t think I will ever be able to bring myself to burn these little guys but they are scenting my room as it is. I am fully intending on buying a pastel blue and lilac one at some point and the best part is you can mix and match the scents, so I could have a mint smelling lilac candle!
Accessories (and a cushion…)
This months Crown and Glory favourites are just so lovely. The Scarf Bow Headband came in my February Glitterati box and has become my go to headband for days when I just want something simple to just add a little something-something. I have been lusting over the Lotta Rosie Headband in Ice Cream for quite some time now so was super excited to finally purchase it. It is so “me” and goes perfectly with all of my pretty dresses. I will be wearing this so much in spring and summer. I just had to include my Love Definition pillow from Primark because it was just staring at me. It’s so simple and cute and because it’s grey it works with all of our different coloured bedding sets.
TV / Netflix
Community was added to UK Netflix this month and this made me a very happy Emma. I had been wanting to watch it for ages so couldn’t wait to get stuck in. Me and Oli marathoned all 5 seasons in the space of about 2 weeks and boy was it a good 2 weeks. This series is hilarious and I am so happy it is returning for a 6th season. If you haven’t watched this then I highly recommend you give it a go.
Last Minute Faves
I was in Exeter this week for my friends birthday and I did a wee bit of shopping and although I only brought these bits within the last few days of the month I really wanted to add them in here because they are awesome. I popped in to Urban Outfitters and picked up this adorable fabric covered photo album with “Parties with my bitches” printed on the front. I’m going to print out some of my Instagram photos at the end of the year and this is going to be their home. I popped into Primark to get some leggings and basic crop tops and saw this amazing neon pink notebook just as I was going to pay and I fell in love. I think it’s going to become my new Journal because it makes me smile so much. It’s really good quality and was only £2.
I also took a wee trip to Lush and tried on a bit of the Vanillary Solid Perfume then went on with my way. However I spent all evening smelling this gorgeous smell and it took me hours to figure out it was the perfume. I went straight back the next day and brought myself one and now I cannot stop smelling it. It’s amazing and sweet and subtle and yummy! It’s mainly vanilla scented, as the name suggests, but it also has notes of tonka and jasmine which is probably why I love it so much, jasmine is totally my jam scent wise. I’m going to be wearing this everyday because it’s soft and subtle so will work with other scents (espeically Lust and The Comforter Lush perfumes) but is also amazing on it’s own.
So there you go, all the products I have been loving this month I hope this helped or inspired or entertained you.
