Things I’m Loving Lately {February}

Oh February, as always you whizzed by. I know it’s the shortest month of the year but I honestly thought we had at least one more week left. It’s been a bit hectic here lately so I’m actually really looking forward to March. I always feel like the start of each month is sort of like a fresh start and I can’t help but feel a bit excited to see what’s in store for us over the coming few weeks. Here are a few things that I’ve been loving lately…

Beauty

My top beauty item this month is without a doubt the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation which I raved about here. It’s amazing and I love it. If you haven’t already, you must try it.

I’ve been going to exercise classes twice a week since the beginning of the year and I’ve been loving using Invisi-bobbles to tie my hair back with. They are perfect for days that you have styled your hair and don’t want to ruin it with a hairband mark. I find them much more comfortable to wear too. I received mine in a Glossybox in the Autumn but you can pick them up here from boots and they are a steal at only £3.75 for 3.

Fashion

I have been wearing my black faux leather jacket to death this month. It’s so easy to just throw on as I’m running out the door and it goes with most things. I’ve been layering it with roll neck jumpers a lot lately. But I think it’s a brilliant transitional piece for this time of year and as we go into spring I can see myself ditching the roll necks and wearing it over midi dresses teamed with sandals instead.

I loved this playsuit that I wore for the first time recently to my friends leaving party. I wore it with black tights, my favourite black tassel ankle boots and my leather jacket. I can’t wait to wear it sans tights when the weather warms up a bit.


Lastly, I couldn’t not mention these Adidas monochrome workout leggings that I am utterly obsessed with. I can’t find the exact ones online as I picked them up in the sale last year but these ones are pretty similar. They are a great fit and stay up well when doing a million sumo squats… Trust me, I’ve put them through their paces this month 😉 I just wish it was acceptable to wear them all the time!


Home

I have been burning a lot of candles lately that it’s probably about time I replenished my stock soon with some more spring scented ones. I smelt the Yankee Candle in the scent ‘Jelly Beans’ the other day which I think is part of their Easter collection and it smelt divine! This month I’ve been really enjoying burning these M&S alphabet candles which I think look so stylish on our white shelves but also smell gorgeous too.

I also finally got around to using my lime and grapefruit Valentte soy wax candle which has quickly become my new favourite! I’d been putting off lighting it because I didn’t want to waste it. It smells utterly amazing and the scent payoff is insanely good, it really does fill the whole room. In my bid to make it last longer I have only been lighting it at weekends 😉 They are currently half price on the website so do check them out! The candle came in a set with a reed diffuser in the same scent which smells equally amazing.
Food

I have been absolutely loving the Body Coach’s Lean In 15 recipe book this month, the recipes are so simple to follow, super tasty and good for you! A winning combination in my eyes. I included a couple of my favourites so far in my ‘What We Ate’ post which you can read here.


We haven’t eaten out much this month but did enjoy a gorgeous Japanese meal at Moshimo in Brighton which is one of our favourite places to eat. They do the best chicken katsu curry ever! If you are ever in Brighton, I’d definitely recommend paying them a visit.

What have you been loving this month?

    A lovely round-up Harriet! I am always on the lookout for good running leggings so must check these out, but as you did last year, it’s great nabbing a pair in the sales! I really must try out more of the Nars range – I use their blusher and really like the depth of colour it gives. Thanks for sharing! x
