FEBRUARY FAVOURITES 2019!

Is it just me or did February go by in a flash? I know January was the longest month on the planet but I swear I blinked and February dissapeared! Anyway, enough about that .. let's get on to my February favourites.



LIFESTYLE
Slimming World:
I'm keeping Slimming World in my favourites again this month because I'm still absolutely loving it and have been enjoying discovering new healthy recipes and seeing the pounds drop off. I have been doing it for 8 weeks now and I've lost just over 1 stone. I've got a long way to go yet but I feel like this is such a big achievement for me and I was so happy when I saw the number on the scales that I cried happy tears!! Check out my Slimming World: What I eat in a Week here.


My Birthday Weekend:
On February 10, I turned 25 and celebrated in the most perfect way; with my family and boyfriend. I took the Friday/Monday off work so that I could have a long relaxing weekend and Jay booked off the Friday too so we decided to use that as our day to celebrate. I woke up early on Friday morning and Jay had surprised me with a trip to one of our local spas Oulton Hall for a spa day. I was honestly so shocked and have wanted to visit them for a while so was so excited to go. I had a back massage and a facial and spent the afternoon in the pool and sauna relaxing! We ended our day with a celebratory meal at Tattu Leeds which was gorgeous. It's basically a Chinese but upmarket and the food was amazing! We'd definitely go back there again.



On the Saturday my family came up to Leeds to visit and we all went out for a meal at one of our favourite places Gusto. The food and company was fabulous and I loved seeing all the family together. On my actual birthday on the Sunday we literally did nothing. We ate out basically for every meal and pottered around the shops and relaxed. It was the most perfect weekend!

BEAUTY
Clarins Cleansing Milk:
This product reminds me SO much of my mum. She has this in her bathroom at home and I remember when I was younger I used to sneak into her room and use some of it on a cotton pad as it smelt like heaven and really soothed my face (sorry mum). I suffer with very dry and sometimes sensitive skin so I have to be very careful with the products I choose to use. I love this product because it feels so soothing on my skin and really helps keep my skin hydrated after I've removed my makeup with a micellar water.

Eczema Cream:
I know this is the most random favourite but my skin has recently been SO bad. I've really suffered with sever dryness under my eyes over the past couple of weeks and nothing helped apart from some random eczema cream I had lying around. If you suffer with dry skin then I'd recommending using this.

Primark Glitters:
I picked up some of the Primark glitters around Christmas time and used them religiously over the festive period and I recently brought them back into my life during my birthday and I've been obsessed with them again. They're so pigmented for the price and they can be used to add on top of eye shadows, on their own or as an eyeliner. I've done a full review over on my blog which you can read here.



FASHION
Femme Luxe Black Midi Dress:
I was lucky enough to be gifted some amazing pieces from Femme Luxe recently and one of the items I received was this beautiful black midi dress. I'm on a weightloss journey at the moment as you'll know from my Slimming World updates and I was very nervous to receive this as I feel quite self conscious with my body but this dress gives me so much confidence. I love the tie waist and the puffy sleeves (I hate my arms). I am honestly in love and cannot wait to wear it for my Aunties birthday party in a few weeks! Find out what other items I chose from the website here.


Sekonda Rose Gold Watch:
I asked for this Sekonda watch for my birthday and was pleasantly surprised when I opened it from Jay. I love rose gold and the blue watch face is what stood out to me. I have a watch with a silver face which comes with black, brown and silver interchangeable watch straps which I love and I also have a rose gold chunky Michael Kors watch which is nice on special occasions but I wanted a slightly daintier version and this is just perfect.
