FEBRUARY FAVOURITES 2014!


Hey everyone! February is long gone. It was a short month but I certainly made the most of every day, as it was the last month of Summer and my holiday. March is here now, which means I'm back at Uni. Definitely no mucking around when you're in Uni. First week back and we are already down to business. I'm trying to figure out a schedule that works for me, so please bare with me guys!☺ Anyhow, let's get started with what I loved in the month of February!..

Eco Tools Powder Brush
ECO TOOLS Large Powder Brush 

I have quite a few Eco Tools brushes and I'm yet to be disappointed. This brush feels so incredibly soft on my skin and apply powder well. I've washed the brush a few times and have not experience any shedding of the bristles. I would definitely recommend getting this brush- if you're looking for a decent powder brush that is very affordable.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade
REVLON COLORBURST Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade

Can I just start by saying how freakin' pretty this shade of the lip butter is?! It's gorgeous! The name also makes it even more appealing. Pink Lemonade is a sheer pale pink color with a luminous sheen finish. To me, I think this is the perfect nude shade. It lightens your natural lip color but it's not going to completely washed you out, and make you look like you're ill. The color itself, is very girly, feminine, romantic and everything in between. I love the consistency of the lip butters, which reminds me of a lip balm. They're super easy to apply. However, I find that you'll have to reapply after a few hours- which is no biggie. It's one of those shades that you can apply with your eyes closed. Love, love, love it!

Maybelline Mono Eye shadow in Snow White
MAYBELLINE EYESTUDIO Mono Eye-shadow in 01 Snow White
                   
I absolutely loved using this on my inner corners of my eyes and under my brow bone to highlight them! It just make my eyes look super pretty. The little shimmers will also help make your eyes look bigger and brighter. It's super pigmented and doesn't feel chalky at all- just one swipe is all you'll need. It lasts for a long time too, which is a bonus. If I have to be critical,  I'd say that the plastic packaging isn't the best. Sometimes, it can get a little messy when opening it. Overall, great shadow!

Rose Gold Bar Necklace from Etsy 
SW Samantha Wills Rose Gold Dream Necklace


I'm all about dainty necklaces and rose gold. Those two together is just the perfect combo. I saw that Kacey from Sparkliebarbiexo on YT always wear a silver bar necklace and thought it looked so pretty and unique. So, I went onto Etsy and searched 'bar necklace', and this particular rose gold necklace caught my eyes. I LOVE it. The Dream necklace was bought from Samantha Wills. Being the dreamer that I am, this had my name written all over it. By the way if you don't know who she is, you are missing out big time. She's a well known Australian/International jewelry designer which quite a few celebrities have worn at the red carpet events. Her jewelry is so well designed and absolutely enchanting. I was contemplating whether to buy it or not and then when I went back onto her website, it was gone! I was quite upset at myself that I didn't buy it then haha. So, of course I emailed the customer care team and they told me I was still able to purchase it. It arrived within two days! It was so well packaged with the perfectly caved wooden box for storage. I love wearing the necklaces on their own or layering the two together. It's subtle and simple, which is how I like it.

You may or may not notice that my blog had undergone a minor plastic surgery. Designing a blog is not as easy as you may think. It took me forever to get to where it is looking now and there's still little tweaks that I need to fix. Thank goodness for Ellie from xomisse. Her blog is the ultimate bible for bloggers. It has great tips from HTML codes and SEO tips to blogging tips and tutorials, which is very beneficial for bloggers. I have quite a few questions for her when I was designing my blog and Ellie was so nice to help me out. She's super lovely! So please send some love over to her and check out her blog. Thanks a bunch Ellie for all of your help!

Lenka- The Show

My cousins actually reintroduced me to this song. It came out a few years ago and you might have heard it in the movie,"Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snoggin'." It is such a cute and catchy song!

John Legend- All of Me

Oh John Legend, you are a legend! I absolutely love this song. The perfect piano playing and the perfect lyrics. How can't you not love it?!

That's it for my February Favourites! What are some of your favourites? Also, let me know what you think of my new layout. Would love to hear some feedback.☺
