It's that time again! Cannot believe that it's already the end of another month...this year is going way too quickly already for my liking. But still, I'm excited for the weather to start changing and for Spring to arrive because thats my favourite time of year.

But for now, here is a quick run down of everything I've been especially loving throughout the month of February. I have also filmed a video on my YouTube channel if you would prefer to watch me talk through the items instead of reading through them (video linked below).


The BodyShop 'Drops of Youth' Concentrate:
I've been using this in my morning skincare routine every single day for the past couple of months and now I don't know what I'd do without it. It honestly feels like you're applying cool water onto your face which sinks in straight away, leaving your skin looking fresh and smooth. It also adds that extra bit of hydration into your skin alongside a moisturiser which is great before applying makeup.

Zoeva 'Cocoa Blend' Palette:
This is the newest addition to my eyeshadow collection and I've had my eye on it for a long time. I'm a big fan of warm tones for eyeshadow and this palette has a really unique collection which can be used to create so many different looks. It also includes a matte white/cream shade which is great for a natural inner corner highlight, and a black shade too which is great for lining the lash line. It's really affordable and the shadows blend out really well to create seamless looks. I love using the red tones with the golds to create a rose gold eye.

Chanel Healthy Glow Foundation: 
I've already written a more in-depth review on this foundation in a recent post if you'd like to know more details about this. But this foundation is so gorgeous. Not only does it live up to the standards of other Chanel products, but it's one that I didn't think would suit my skin type. It claims to add a 'healthy glow' to your skin which made me a bit skeptical about trying it because my skin type is combination/oily and I didn't want it to add anymore shine. However, because it has a semi-matte velvet finish, it sets really well on my skin but still looks natural and glowy. It doesn't add more shine to my face but just enhances the natural glow whilst still giving a medium coverage. Definitely one to check out!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette:
I've honestly wanted this palette for about a year and I'm so so happy I've finally got my hands on it. The three shades are so versatile and can be used singly in different areas, layered on top of each other or even used as eyeshadows. I like to use this on a daily basis because it adds such a subtle and natural glow to the skin as the powders are so fine. They have a slight shimmer running through but nothing too much and so it maintains a natural 'skin like' look on your face which is what I like for a day to day look.

Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick 'Serenity':
I've tried a few different brands of liquid lipsticks now but this one has impressed me the most. It's really comfortable to wear on the lips even though it's very matte and doesn't seem to crack or wear off during the day. I can eat and drink with this on and not need to reapply so its great to wear if you're going out for dinner or somewhere that you don't want to worry about your makeup needing touching up. They're also really affordable and have a good shade range. I love this nude shade as it's great for all occasions but would love to try out some of the brighter colours.

The Night Circus:
I've finally finished this book after about a year of reading it because I'm such a slow reader, but it's definitely worth it. If you enjoy reading fictional stories which include fantasy, magic and interesting characters then you'll love this. It's been a bestseller last year and I can now see why. It's one of those books that I'll definitely read again in the future because it makes you feel as though you're in the story which I love from a book.

Grey Suede Gloves:
I've already got a pair of black faux leather gloves which I wear throughout most of Winter, but for my birthday I got these ones and I love them. I think that they look very sophistocated and the pale grey colour makes them a great transitional piece for Spring to wear with a jacket because it's still quite bitter and cold outside even though the weather is starting to brighten up. 

What have your favourites been throughout February?

Love Emily
