2015 February Favourites ♡

Okay, as if summers over and it's already March! This month was a little emotional roller coaster. I had to make some changes in my life and I'm finally able to say that I'm much happier and at peace as we speak! I discovered a couple of new things in February, although, I'm always on the hunt for more!

Beauty products I've been loving
✿ Make - up

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in '100 Ivory': I featured this product in a haul not too long ago. I love this foundation; Believe it or not it's actually my first ever foundation that I've owned! What I love is that it's light weight so it's perfect for someone like me who is just starting to get into foundation! It gives a light-medium coverage and is definitely build able. It looks really natural and glowing on the skin, it sets beautifully and lasts a decent amount of time. It also has SPF15+ which is a bonus.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in '160 Brightener/Illuminator': I also mentioned this in a haul; I'm a massive fan of the fair shade in the collection. I heard that this shade in particular was being discontinued so I picked it up to try and I adore it! The brightener, I find adds such light back under the eyes and really makes you look awake! It adds perfect coverage, it's creamy and easy to blend. This paired up with the match perfection foundation is a match made in heaven!

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in 'dark brown': I have really been enjoying this brow product. It's perfect at sculpting and setting my brows in place all day. I still don't understand the wand because it's quite hard to use without getting it everywhere. Luckily I have a steady hand enough to actually get the product on my brows! The product itself is perfect for everyday wear. It lasts a long time and keeps your brows in place all day!

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in '01 Black Fever': I always rave about these eye pencils! They last ages, they're pigmented, they're in expensive and they don't get enough hype! I like to wear this one in my tight line for school/work and always get compliments. It doesn't budge all day which is what I love. I always recommend these to people!

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in '19 Hot Scorch': Just as the black one, I love pairing this with it! It's a beautiful copper/bronze shade which again, is long wearing and lasts ages. I like to wear this one on my lower lash line and blend it out with my finger. Beautiful shade and would look amazing on blue eyes!

Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Face Brush: I absolutely adore this brush! It's perfect for powder, blush or bronzer. I love it to touch up my oiliness with a powder. It adds and picks up just the right amount of product to lightly dust on your face. It's so soft, which I love plus it's so easy to clean!

Natio Cleanser Applicator? I have no glue what this is called because it came in my mothers skin care set. (I'm aware there are plenty of these things from other brands) I have been loving including this in my skin care routine. It basically gets off any excess product left on the skin. When you wash your face with a cleanser using your hands, you're only really taking off what's on the surface. With this tool, you can get deeper into your skin to really clean your face. Been loving it and my skin feels a lot nicer!

✿ Music:

Take Me Over (feat.SAFIA) - Peking Duk
I Want You To Know (feat. Selena Gomez) - Zedd
Reminds Me Of You - Sam Smith
Clouds - One Direction

✿ Movie:

Love, Rosie. I really enjoyed this movie. It's a romantic comedy with my favourite, Lily Collins. The story is a little complicated to explain but definitely watch the trailer to see if you'd like it because it was what I hoped for!

✿ Food:

Quest Bars. yum! I'm craving one as we speak. I love quest bars, I've only tried 3 of the flavours but my favourite is probably 'cookies & cream'. It's an amazing source of protein and a treat! You wouldn't think it was good for you because it tastes so good! Perfect before/after workout snack!

✿ You-tuber/Blogger:

Essena O'neil. I've been obsessing over her! Her Instagram is amazing, her view on life is inspiring and I've just been enjoying her videos and reading her blog. If you're into lifestyle/plant based living/equity, then definitely check her out.

✿ Memory: 

One Direction 'On The Road Again Tour'. Pretty sure this night was the funnest and most hectic. I saw 1D live at the beginning of the month with opening acts Mcbusted (who were incredible). I remember loosing my voice, screaming my lungs out and not being able to walk the next day. It was a surreal experience; highlight of my year so far!

They are my February Favourites! I hope March brings exciting new opportunities. Try to say YES to something you normally wouldn't and see where it brings you.
