February Favourites 2016.

 This is my first favourites post of the year, I love doing them to reflect on things I have enjoyed. Over the last few months its been all about moving house and saving so now I can take a deep breath and start to relax. I am going to get back into my blog and do more beauty, home ware and lifestyle posts. I have some plans to head into London next month too so I am very excited. I wanted to start my favourites with my new purse, I am obsessed with it, it has floral sausage dogs on it. Its from George at Asda for just £5. 
 Making blog notes in my new note book has been a favourite, I have been planning blog post ideas all month in it. I got it from Home Sense in January. My Happiness planner is one of my favourite things to do everyday, it helps you take your mind off the day, relax because its all down on paper. It takes a 100 days to break a habit and I really find that this helps me. 
 I am doing a home blog post of my new lounge soon, so I won't go into too much detail. I am in love with our new chair from Ikea and our new cushions. The raccoon one is from Primark and I am in love with it. The monochrome one is from Ikea and was £12, I am obsessed with home ware. 
 I think I need to get a subscription to this magazine because I keep on buying it on my monthly shops. House Beautiful and Ideal home are great for inspiration and they look great on the coffee table. It is all about decorating my house right now, I need more art work and the next room to work on is our dinning room.
 freedom is a make up  brand I love, this is one of the first products I used from them and instantly fell in love with the shades and quality. House of Glam Dolls is a great product to use as it has multiple uses, it has lip products, highlighters, blusher and brow powders all in one palette. The peachy blusher is amazing for Spring make up looks, so excited to use more of this palette. The Pro studio Priming water is a must too, it helps to keep my make up on, you spray it before or even after you apply make up. I find it keeps my make up looking fresh all day long, even after a long day at work.
 I have been having trouble with my skin so I have been using Witch skin care products for a few months now. I have seen such an improvement, having a routine helps keep my spots at bay. They are a drug store brand that you can trust in your teen years all the way to your twenties. Along side Witch I have been using masque Bar charcoal peel off mask and it has been a miracle worker, it pulls out all the horrible things and leaves my skin feeling soft. Make sure you don't get any on your eye brows because it really sticks to your skin. I am obsessed with using it once a month to deep clean my skin, I got mine in Boots. 
 I have tried three new hair products in February and I am still using them in March. Garnier is one brand I can use on my hair, I have a sensative scalp so most hair products hurt. This one is amazing, its light and leaves my hair shiny and soft. Loreal Extraordinary Clay shampoo and conditioner work so well, I love the concept of it. Greasy hair would benefit from using these products. 
 Change from The Body Shop has been a life saver, my hands are full of cuts and dry skin from work. It has helped to make my hands look healthier again and it has a great message behind it too. For every one purchased,  £1.50 will go to help the Body Shop Foundation. They help to make change, to enrich the animals, planet, people and oceans. 
 A book I have been loving over the last few months is The Girl On The Train. I am wanting to finish it before the film comes out, sitting here on my day off reading this book makes me feel super relaxed. I am a book worm and I need some more book recommendations too. 

February was mine and Robs anniversary, we celebrated six years together which is amazing. I adore Rob and as cheesy as it sounds he is my rock, cannot wait for six plus more years with him. We decided to head over to the Trafford Centre to have a meal and shop, he got me this adorable build a bear. We watch How to train a dragon together and it is something we both love so it means a lot to me. 

What have you been loving in February?
