❤ February Favourites ❤

I'm a tad late, I know...
No I'm like nearly a MONTH late!
I'm so sorry that I didn't do this near the beginning of March, when I'm supposed too, but I was way too busy! But as Troy Bolton once said, It's better late than never!
Or actually did he say Now or Never?
I don't know

On the other hand... it's finally the Easter Holidays!!!
Thank God.

2 weeks off. WOO HOO!

So I'll be here at home until Thursday or Friday and then I'll be going to the West for the weekend, and I'll be back on Tuesday  But then.... I'll be off to the Alps on Thursday! Yay! I absolutely love skiing, and I haven't been on a slope for a while. I'm super excited about this Easter!

What I hope to do before I head off is a few things on this blog like a look book, a haul (if I go shopping at all) and other things :)

Also Happy (Late) St. Patrick's Day! I was going to do an OOTD but I was hanging out with friends for most of the day and I ran out of time (me and my typical excuses). I basically wore my green Hollister hoodie and jeans and I had green eye shadow on. I hope you all had a fantastic day and if you know a little Gaeilge: La Fheile Padraig Sona Duit! (can't use fadas... sorry)

I think I should get on with this (extremely late) favourites post. Let us begin!

Beauty



Make Up:
Benetint by Benefit
Benetint is fabulous! I used it a lot for my lips throughout February to try and look like Taylor Swift, without having a red lipstick. I slicked a lot of it on along with my Rosy Lips Vaseline. I think it's time for me to get a red lipstick though...
The tint is good for cheeks too, as it gives you a healthy glow! It was great for V-Day.

Natural Collection Lip Gloss in "Sherbet Fizz"
Oh. My. Giddy. Aunt.
This lip gloss smells, just.... SOOOOO NICE!
If you love candyfloss or sweets then I recommend this lip gloss. It's is a gorgeous colour too. I wore it a lot throughout February.

They're Real Mascara by Benefit
This mascara is wonderful. My mum and my sister have it and they wear it a lot, and that made me want it so badly. It's great for any occasion, but if you're going out to party or for dinner and you want to feel sophisticated while getting ready, then wear They're Real. I love it so much! I went to a lot of parties and outings in February, so it's definitely my go-to mascara for special events. They really lengthen my lashes.

Garnier BB Cream
This is my only foundation.... ahem..... BB cream that I've had so far, but I've been wearing it a lot throughout February. It's good for young teenage skin because it's not too heavy and is moisturising.

Eco Tools Blush Brush
This brush is very soft and is good for applying blush.




Suagrbomb Blush by Benefit
I adore this blush; it has such a sugary look to it, like its name. The four colours (peach, soft plum, rose and pink) blend very well to create a shimmering look for sweet cheeks.



Royal Jet Set Girls on the Go Eye Shadow Set
The colours on this eye shadow palette are nice and sparkly when applied, and I loved to combine a hot pink and light pink (you might be able to spot them) throughout the month, as I did on Valentine's Day.



Fragrance:
Malibue Beach Hollister Body Mist
I've had this for a long time now, and the scent is gorgeous  It is "warm and casual" and is nice to wear on a sunny day, which doesn't happen very much in Ireland... but anyway! I sprayed and shimmied through it a lot last February.


Skincare:
Malibu Beach Hollister Body Lotion
This has the same smell as the body spray, so it's a amazing combination. I rubbed it on my skin gently around my neck area and my arms after a shower, and I came out of the bathroom leaving behind a lovely fragrance most mornings in February.

Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion
I use this at night after I wear make up, and it really helps take it off. It's quite refreshing too, but the smell is annoying at first. You get used to it eventually.
I love this cleanser; it's now part of my skincare routine.


Hair Products:
Elnett Satin Heat Spray
This hair spray is best to use before curling/straightening your hair. Don't use too much though! It'll make your hair sticky if you do. Use it wisley.

Penney's Brush and Comb
I bought these randomly while in Penney's with my best friend, but surprisingly, they're good! The comb is great to use while in the shower, and I use the brush for brushing wet hair. The colours even match.



Ceramic Heated Clips by Carmen
WOW! I love these rollers! I used them loads in February. They don't give you crazy frizzy curls, just nice bouncy waves that I adore! This a must-have.

Music

Album:
Little Mix's album DNA
(Favourite Songs: Change Your Life, We Are Who We Are, Madhouse)
Little Mix really inspre me. Their style is epic and quirky and their music is fab. I was so delighted to receive their new CD for Christmas. The songs below are so catchy and are full of girl power!


Singles:
How to be Heartbreaker by Marina and the Diamonds
Marina is one my all-time favourite singers and style icons, and I love her new "doll" look with the pastel lips and dresses, and her heart on her cheek. Her songs are amazing and I love her album 'Electra Heart'. 
This song is so catchy and fun!



Enchanted by Taylor Swift
This a real old song by Taylor Swift, but I listened to it again and again and fell in love. I love the lyrics and soft music.



Random

Books/Magazines:
KISS Magazine (March Issue)
Once again! It's going to pop up again and again I'm telling you! It is such an addicting magazine and is fabulous and glamorous (and 100% Irish!) with tons of fashion, beauty and life tips. I can never put it down.

Top of the Pops Magazine (February Issue)
I love the celebrity new in this issue; celebrity gossip is great fun to read! The fashion and beauty is OK but obviously not as good as KISS. 
KISS beats all.

Emerald Star by Jacqueline Wilson
I finished this book now, and although it looks quite babyish, it isn't at all. I don't mean it's rude and inappropriate, I'm saying it's a fantastic read for a girl aged from 10-14. I'm serious! I couldn't put it down. I love Jacqueline Wilson, but I am sort of going off her books a bit at the moment. She's still fabulous though.
The Hetty Feather series is brilliant.

Movie:
Les Miserables



The most heart-breaking musical ever with beautiful singers and music. I absolutely loved the story. The beginning is quite long and boring but it gets so exciting. I really loved it! I cried at the end :( if you have seen it tell me what you thought of it in the comments (but don't spoil it for other people)

Snack:
Mikado Biscuits
I have to say these are my all-time favourite biscuits since I was like 4 years old, but in February I was really devouring them. I gave up chocolate and sweets for Lent, so these were my jam. Ha see what I did there! There's jam in Mikado biscuits! Hehe


Blog of the Month:
I love Sophie's photography and her blog layout is so perf! She has a great love for beauty and fashion, and she does great OOTDs and reviews. Below is a picture from one of her Week(s) in Instagram post. Such a pretty blog (and girl)!


Youtuber of the Month:
Ahhhhhh!
Mere is so funny and she brightens up my day whenever I watch one of her videos.
She is brilliant at beauty and I absolutely tootley love her style!
Here is one of her videos from February that I loved, and you'll understand what I mean in no time!


That's it! See ya soon!
