Monthly Favourites

March is just around the corner and I for one cannot wait! February for me was a month of assessments and deadlines and Im so glad to just be able to relax and blog again for one! 
I noticed on my blog I have never done a “Monthly Favourites” so I thought I’d make a start as I love reading “Monthly Favourites” posts myself, if you follow me on Bloglovin’ you’ll see this from my Saved Posts! I also wanted to let you guys know I am hosting a giveaway HERE for a M.A.C Lipstick of your choice as well as a few of my favourite LUSH goodies so make sure you enter!
Anyway onto the favourites:
Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack

Music wise I’ve really been enjoying the Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack. Im too much of a wimp to go see the film (I still feel cringey watching intimate scenes on the tv let alone a red sex room) and some of the tracks are so addictive, my favourite being
 “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding and Beyonce’s Crazy in Love Remix.

Topshop Cream Blush in Flush
I’ve recently started getting into cream blushes as it’s coming up to spring (where natural looking makeup takes over) and have heard rave reviews about the one’s from Topshop. I picked up one in Flush which is a lovely peachy/orange shade and I wear it almost everyday.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
I’ve tried Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish once of twice before and whenever I have used this hot cloth cleanser I have found my face to feel a lot more fresh and nourished rather than stripped and dry. That’s why i’ve been using it this last month to improve my skin, and it will be one product I will be repurchasing as soon as possible.

Smashbox Studio Skin in 1.2
I haven’t yet gotten the full foundation however I’ve managed to get quite a lot of use out of a sample I was given recently, and when I apply it my skin looks airbrushed! It is a little bit full and matte for daily use but for when I have those spotty days (a regularity recently) or a night out it’s absolutely perfect. I really want to try their new photo filter powder foundation so will probably compare the two at a later date.

I haven’t had much chance to take the time to really go through and try all the recipes and tips yet, however from a first impression (procrastinated reading during assessment) it’s a good all over book. Yes, of course it has the typical “First Date Tips” etc made for younger readers but even these sections aren’t patronising as they can be in other books. I especially like her sections on confidence and happiness and the “fill it in yourself” bits pages after each chapter.

After last month becoming obsessed with Soap and Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Nudist I knew I had to buy another. I ended up choosing Plum Jam which is more of a dark vampy looking lip however being a gloss stick it comes out as a moisturising rosy colour (your lips but healthier looking!). Its my go-to lip product now for spring.
