February Favourites 2015

Bit of a mixed bag in terms of favourites this month! I've been loving so many different things, so this is just a little selection of stuff that I have really really loved during February, ft experimenting with a new blog photos background (I think I prefer them like this? Let me know your thoughts! Trying to find a decent background in my room is not the easiest let me tell you!). Anyway, commence with the favourites!

Beauty wise this month, there are four products that I find myself reaching for and completely adoring on a daily basis, three of which are newer finds but definitely deserve their place. Like the rest of the world and his wife, I have been loving the Roller Lash mascara by Benefit, which launched properly last week and I immediately snapped up my full size version. I love this mascara as I am sure you are aware of by now, and will always recommend it to anyone with short stubby lashes like my own (that is, until I find an even better mascara!) It's not cheap, retailing at £19.50, but it does a bloody good job. 

Face wise this month I have been in love with my new MAC studio fix powder and foundation in NC15, which retails at £21.50 and I literally adore. For touch ups during the day, nothing beats my trusty Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot blotting powder, which I believe is around £12 but worth every single penny, I haven't found a better powder for the price which gets rid of all shine without being cakey and really visible. Lastly for beauty, I have been loving the Makeup Revolution ultra blush palette in Hot Spice, which is so beautiful and I am actually in love with every shade.

In terms of other loves, all the lovely chocolate brands have released their Easter chocolates and I actually couldn't be happier! Easter chocolate is my favourite chocolate, all the Maltesers Bunnies and caramel Creme Eggs and ordinary Creme Eggs and ooo I am so excited for the next few months and stuffing my face!

Along the same vein but way healthier, I have been drinking a lot of Nina's Savse Super Orange, which is my favourite juice because it tastes so very lovely and I buy it from Boots, so I also get my advantage card points! Oh Boots, we will never be split up from each other.

I have also been loving everything rose gold at the moment! I picked up this beautiful rose gold purse from New Look when I went to London, and I love the colour so much. I also have the most beautiful rose gold fairy necklace, and keep getting distracted by admiring the Zoeva rose gold brushes online! Unfortunately, they are a little out of my budget at the moment, but a girl can definitely dream. Right?

Finally, I have been loving William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, which I'm actually studying in literature at the moment. I love the Romantic movement and the Romantic poets, but the poems in Blake's Songs collection are some of my favourites, criticising parts of society that are still very relevant today. I bow down to you sir.

That's everything for this month's favourites! I can't believe how quickly February went by, it feels like I blinked at the end of January and now we're here! Downhill slope to exams now, definitely looking forward to that. Anything you're looking forward to now spring has sprung?
