Stripes, stories and sleek nails

The second month of 2016 is over and it has bought another month of memories. I love looking back at what I’ve loved this month and although I haven’t tried lots of new things in February but I have re discovered a few old favourites.

I’m starting off this favourites with one of the best books I think I’ve ever read and that is Me before You by Jojo Moyes. The book is so encapsulating and drew me in from the very beginning. I have to say tears were shed but I would recommend you all to read this book. It follows Louise Clarke as she gets a job looking after a Quadriplegic and the story that follows.

A nail varnish that has been on my nails most of the month is Essie’s Eternal optimist. I’ve got it on whilst I’m writing this post and it’s just such a perfect light pink shade. I’ve had so many compliments on the colour and would totally recommend it if you’re not really a fan of bright nail colours.

On my recent trip to Brighton I purchased the Nars Dolce Vita lip pencil and I think that it is utterly divine. Despite seemingly owning one million lip options, this was a lipstick I hadn’t really seen before. It’s a lot pinkier than it is on the lips it just looks gorgeous.

I feel like this month I’ve gone stripes mad! I bought two tops in my recent haul and I’ve literally been wearing something stripey with almost every outfit this month. My best friend had to refrain me from buying another two last week – the obsession is real. No doubt this is a favourite that will continue long into the year… Although who am I kidding? My love for stripes will most probably last forever.

My hands have been quite dry lately due to the cold weather but this little tube of hand cream from the Body Shop has been my savior. I’m not really fussy about hand cream and in my opinion they are all pretty similar but I love this one because of the smell. It honestly smells so nice and I urge you try any of the products from the mango range because they are all smell pretty amazing.

That’s what I’ve been loving in February but what are your favourites this month?

    I really love the Essie nail polish!! The color is so pretty. I really like Fiji 🙂 have you ever try it? It's a pretty light pink.
