February Favourites

Over the month of February, I haven't tried many new products but I have been loving a lot of different things. So instead of just showing you what products I have been loving I have decided to add in a few different other things, like music that I have been loving over the month. 

Firstly I have been loving Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara in blackest black. Firstly I just love how vibrant and out going the mascara is. I love how the pink and green kinda clash against each other, which is something you don't normally see in products. But anyway enough about the aesthetics of the mascara. What about the actual product? The product itself is amazing quality. One thing I love is how with one coat it can make your lashes look natural but if you add a few more coats, it makes you lashes pop and become more voluminous. Another thing that I like about this product is the brush, I find with most mascaras they're an amazing product but they are not always the easiest to hold. Which isn't the case with this mascara I find that with this mascara the it is easy to hold and the brush picks up enough product but not to much to make your lashes get clumpy. If I had to rate this product out of 5 I would give it a good 4. 

I have had a few Nails Inc polishes in the past and have really gotten along with them. To be honest this was a product that I got out of the Glamour magazine and put amongst the rest of my nail polishes and didn't really think about giving it ago. Until the other day when I though about trying a different colour to wear and I found this colour. Originally I thought it was a brown but this is one of those nail polishes that change depending on what light you are in. This doesn't change drastically like turns from brown to pink. The colour just slightly alters to more a grey tone when outdoors. I also love how hard wearing this product is, as I do a lot of work with my hands whether that's studying, cooking or even having a bath. Sometimes I find that most nail polishes tend to chip very easily but this nail polish is a lot more hard wearing than some and especially if you apply two to three coats I found that they could last from anything between three to five days. I would give this nail polish a good 4.5 out of 5 overall. 

This is something that I picked up very near the end of February and it is the Glade Relaxing Zen. I have loved the Glade Blackberry Frost for a long time and found myself keep repurchasing it and as  I love the little jars keeping the jars. It's only when I realised the pile of Blackberry Frost growing that  thought it might be time to purchase a different one, just for a change. So I picked up this one and really like the smell, It is supposed to last 30 hours but if you're like me and just keep burning them all the time everyday I would say it would last around 25 hours. The smell of this candle is beautiful. I think the style of the jar really reflects the smell of the candle. The smell is very fresh and reminds me of the smell you get when you're in the bath washing your hair. Another thing I love about this product is that you don't even really need to burn the candle to get the smell it just leaves a hint of the smell in your room. It's a strong smell but not over the top. Again if I had to rate this candle out of 5 it would be a high 4.5. 

Oh... My! This product is amazing and does complete wonders for your hair especially if you are like me and want to tame the frizz. I find with most products they claim that they tame the frizz but in all fairness it doesn't change it at all. But with this product it does what it says. I got these little packets to give them a try and to see whether they actually worked with my hair. Plus they were only 15p at Savers. So that's a bargain but you can buy the bigger bottles which I'll leave a link here. I just can't recommend this product enough. Even if you are just looking for a hair mask type thing to really rejuvenate your hair this is the one for you.

Recently I have been really stressed and have been finding it very hard to calm down and breath, even to the extent that "one big breath" doesn't help. But I have found that these Rescue Pastilles really do the job. I found that just taking one before bed could really help you relax and get to sleep or even if your out and about doing your daily duties and physically don't have the time to sit down and breath. Just have one of these and they really help to get you back on track. I have been using these for a long while now, about a year and a half. But over the previous month I have found that they are really beginning to help. 

Now this is a very personal monthly favourite that I have loved ever since I was giving it for Christmas. Which is my Sister necklace from my little sister Makayla. I know sometimes she likes to read my blog, so just a little shout out to her if she's reading this... "Hello Sweetheart, Love you". I really love this necklace, I love how the diamonds don't make it too outgoing but just adds that little bit of sparkle. Just everything about this necklace I have been loving. I think the style of it really relates to my personality, it's dainty but has a personality of it's own. 

My favourite book is the first part of this little series which is Elixir. I used to love Hilary as an actress and singer growing up until I started reading her books, now she is my favourite author. I would love to go into detail about this book and the characters but I don't want to spoil it for anyone reading or wanting to read it. I just really think that this book has a life of it's own, it has a lot of adventure but not too much that you can't relax. This is just one of those books that stick in your head. I just love the mystery about what's going to happen at the end and how it leaves you on the edge of your chair after every page. If you are looking for good read this month I highly recommend Devoted.

Moving onto music that I have been loving over the past month. There has been two new groups that I have fell in love with which are Happy People by Peace and Talking Dreams by Echosmith. As there are two albums, instead of going through each album and explaining why I love it so much I have decided to add my favourite song from each album for you to make you mind up whether you like them yourself or not. 

Number One| Lost on me by Peace taken from Happy People. 

Number Two| Come Together by Echosmith taken from Talking Dreams

So there you have it my February favourites. I should have said to grab a hot beverage at the beginning but I didn't know it would be this long. Anyway apart from how long this post was I hope you liked it and it has given you some inspiration for the month of March. Also before I sign off I would just like to say a BIG thank you for all the support I had from my last blog post. Remember to feel free to make a comment and I'll reply to every comment made. Thank you...
