Monthly Favourites - February

 February is done and dusted! This month has been all about getting back into school (and remembering how exhausting it can be!) as well as my birthday month! This never happens but I actually feel as though this month has really dragged on, and I think that is because it's been hard to transition from the two month holiday block into year 12.

Lips: When I sat down to think about my favourite lip product for the month it was such a no-brainer. I've actually gone with a lip pairing which is my MAC lipstick in Creme Cup (a birthday present) and a Model Co lipstick in Strip Tease which I won in a giveaway and will be reviewing very soon. Creme cup is just heaven on Earth and topped with a gloss I just can't get enough of it.

Eyes: This was another completely obvious choice, and that is the Max Factor Mascara I also won in a giveaway. I've worn this every day for over a month now because I love the gorgeous length and volume it gives to my lashes. This is another product I will be reviewing soon because I just love it!

Face: I have had the most awful skin ever which I think is down to a huge stress and anxiety overload. Nevertheless, I've managed it pretty well with my trusty old Face of Australia stick concealer. It really is down to the smallest nub after about a year of use but it is just so easy and quick to slap on before school.

Nails: I honestly could not choose a nail product this month as they have been in shocking condition, peeling and splitting like nobody's business. I've kept them completely polish free and have been crossing my fingers that they will get better soon!

Other: To make up for my nails category I have included two random favourites, my first being the Our Eutopia Candle in Strawberry Champagne. This literally smells like a blend of strawberry and lemonade, the most amazing sparkly scent that fills my entire room even when the candle isn't burning. I am going to be searching high and low at Target to find another one of these!

My other random favourite is a Minkpink dress I grabbed at the Op-Shop for only $9. It is a little more expensive than what I normally would pay at the Op-shop however it is a good brand and fits magically, I think it is so flattering.

Resolution Review

It was a bit nerve wracking to look back on my resolutions this month as I was pretty sure I had wandered off the track a little bit!

I set a resolution to read more books this year, and although I've not read many books of my choosing, I've certainly read a look of textbooks and English texts. I think I am going to give myself a little bit of credit this time, because although it was compulsory to read 1984 by George Orwell and Perfume by Patrick Suskind for English, I absolutely loved them both!

Next resolution was to drink more water, and I was doing well for the first half of the month but then totally and utterly messed it up! It is really hard to drink lots of water at school because I just cannot handle the idea of missing class to go to the toilet! I need to get better at this resolution!

Next was to continue blogging and here I am, typing away at this post! Success!

So there are my February favourites, quite a nice little collection of things if I do say so myself! I would love to know your topic product for the month just passed!

    1. I was so thrilled to see that the dress was a nice brand :) I've really been enjoying the lipgloss but I think it would get a bit annoying if I kept receiving them in beauty boxes because I have two wildly different shades yet they are literally the same shade on the lips. Thanks so much, I'm so nervous about year 12, arghhh! :) x

    Wow, $9 for a MinkPink dress is sure a bargain! Wishing you the best of luck for your final year :)
