February Favourites | 2015


A monthly favourites? Wow, how rare! Seeing as I picked up a few more bits and bobs than usual this month, I decided to bundle it together in a favourites.

First up, I have candles. There's no surprise that they are Yankee candles either!
Waikiki Melon Yankee Candle - This candle basically smells like spring, possibly a mixture of spring and summer together. I cannot wait until around May time, when I'll light this of an evening, whilst the sun is still setting.
Salted Caramel Yankee Candle - This may contrast a little to the last candle, considering this candle has a very 'christmassy' scent to it. Nevertheless, this smells gorgeous in my room, literally just think of salted caramel.
Heart Shaped Candle Holder - Here we have a dainty, white candle holder, something which will fit the Yankee voltives in quite nicely.

Moving swiftly on to makeup, this February I've picked up quite a few items.
Heart Patterned Clinique Makeup Bag - I actually got this makeup bag free when I purchased two more face washes, and luckily enough it came with a fair amount of goodies inside. Only a couple are in this favourites though considering the majority was skin care which I am yet to use.

Clinique Trio Palette - The first thing the bag contained was a trio palette, consisting of two eye shadows and a larger blush. I'm not one for wearing blusher or eye shadow on a daily basis, but I have a feeling that this has changed that forever (or until I run out).

Clinique Mini Perfume - Let's take a minute to appreciate a mini perfume with a spray pump. Normally, all I can find are the ones where you have to literally tip the bottle upside down and tap it on your skin, but the problem of wasting half a bottle of perfume has been solved! This also smells gorgeous, a mixture of fresh and floral. 

Clinique Chubby Stick - I've lost count of how many Clinique chubby sticks I've gotten through, I suppose they are my holy grail lip product! So, I was pretty excited when I found a new colour waiting for me.

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude - I don't think I've ever managed to steer away from a Rimmel base, until I picked up this new little saviour. I cannot stress how light this foundation is, so if you only need a small amount of coverage, this is the foundation I recommend.

Maybelline Brow Drama - For over a year, I've sat on the side lines and observed the hype about brow gels, they had never really bothered me before. But, seeing as thicker eyebrows are in this year and mine are relatively thin, I jumped on the bandwagon and purchased a gel myself. Also it was 3 for 2 in boots!

What have you been loving this month?

  4. Awh the candle holder is really sweet - it'll look so special with a candle flickering away in there (the melon one sound so nice). And I've seen good things about the Maybelline foundation, so I may have to pick that up at some point! :)

  13. I love the salted caramel scent from Yankee, I don't think it's Christmassy - just nice! The heart candle holder is so cute too. The bottle for the Maybelline foundation is really cute but I need slightly heavier coverage :)
