My Monthly Favourites- February

So this is a first for me, I really enjoy Youtube videos about monthly favourites by my favourite beauty vloggers and bloggers so I thought I would do one myself. This post will involve a few of the things I have really been enjoying, ranging from fashion to food. I hope that this may inspire some of you to consider these products or that you’ll just enjoy what I have to say!


So this month I’ve been doing a bit of products and really preparing me for my spring style.
The first items I have loved are my H&M skater skirts. I know I’ve missed the skater skirt trend a bit but my confidence was high enough for me to purchase one and wear it out, so now there’s no going back. I really like the H&M skater skirts in particular, as they’re flattering and comfy, as well as being affordable to buy and coming in a wide range of prints and colours. I wear mine all the time, normally with a pair of tights and my converse. I have a plain black one as well as a black and floral skirt, available here for £9.99.

The next fashion favourite is frilled socks. I know that I have been loving them for months now but they were practically the only socks I wore and I’ve bought more. I have one pair of all berry red socks from Dorothy Perkins and then loads of my £1.50 ones from Primark. I wear them with heels, Converse, boots, flats… all the time. I love them because they can really finish an outfit and warm up my feet at the same time!

Now a footwear fashion favourite for me is normally hard to choose, as I wear a variety of shoes often. But in February I remember mainly just wearing my Converse. I got my berry Converse for Christmas and I love them! I wear them all the time and I love the aspect they give to a look. Dress them up, dress them down, these shoes are comfy and cute whatever you’re doing. They are available from Schuh (UK shoe shop) here

My final fashion favourite is one that I only purchased late in February but one that I have still become to love by the second. This small brown satchel bag cost me only £8 from Primark, and is a good size. I love the cut outs on the flap and details of this bag, including the clasp on the front. I think it’s perfect for a day bag, big enough for a book and more. The satchel is a sort of vintage style, a classic bag for any occasion.

My next section of monthly favourites is beauty, bath or body.

The first item I have is my face mask. In winter I love to have loads of baths and lately I have been using face masks very regularly. I use them to calm myself, when I’m just about to have a bath and to clean and clear my skin. I have been loving Superdrug’s own make’s hydrating mud mask, a moisturising mask that is made with vitamin E. It is also scented with blueberry. My face mask of choice is a product that comes in a tube, so that it lasts longer and I can put on as much as I want and not waste anything. I cannot find a link to this product, but it is available in Superdrug for £2.59, a similar product is available here

My next product to review is a make up product. Lately I have been trying some new products and I have always loved a bit of eyeliner so when I heard that Primark had bought out a make up range, called ‘P.S. Love’ and the products were decent, I wanted to try one. The black felt tip eye liner was this product and cost only £1.50. I love this product because the thin tip lets you create the look you want. The eyeliner lasts, the colour is easy to build up, and it is easy to reapply. I prefer the thin liner as it just glides on (and mistakes are easier to fix).

The next section is just some ‘other’ products that I wanted to tell you about.

The first is headphones. I love music, it fills me with joy and happiness, so I like to listen to it whenever I want, and not have to ruin the days of other people. I use the small Skullcandy headphones, which have budded ears for comfort and keeping in the sound. I have mine in blue, and they are available here for a very affordable £9.99. I have also lately been doing run practises, because I am running 3 miles for Sports Relief, and I have found that the earphones stay in my ears during this activity.

I love to burn candles; it is a new love of mine after the Christmas candles. I have only just finished my ‘Christmas Morning’ candle, so when I had to replace it I wanted an equally as brilliant scent. I choose to purchase mine from Homesense ( ), a brand that sells a variety of home products, although there are only a few stores I know of. This was where I purchased my last candle, and there are normally a variety of smells for good prices. This time I bought ‘Madagascan Vanilla’ from the Copenhagen Candle Company, for £4.99. I love the scent of vanilla and this lives up to that. It fills my room and gives any space a warm lush feel. It is available here for £9 .

So that’s all from the sections but here is just a list of ‘of the months’ that I thought you’d like to read/ know about.

Hobby of the month- painting.
I have got back into doing art as a choice and not just for homework. Lately I have been painting a bit of Disney, watercolour paints are my best!

Store of the month- Primark.
I have been really impressed with the spring stock in Primark. I have purchased some clothes and accessories that I think are of the same quality and standard of many other high street stores, at much more affordable prices.

So that’s it! I hope you have enjoyed my views and thoughts on my favourite products of February. Pleas leave links to your blogs below, comment please and have a good day!
