February Favourites

Hello lovelies, sorry I’ve not posted for a few days I haven’t been feeling too well. I really like to read these types of posts so I thought I should give it a go for myself. I’m going to be writing about pretty much anything that I’ve been liking over that particular month. Because I started my blog at the beginning of this month February will be my first monthly favourites post!

There have been a few things I’ve really been enjoying through february one of which is the Wilde Like me book I mentioned this in my Sunshine Blogger Award post because it has become one of my favourite books. I love how its such an easy light-hearted read. It’s about real life and a Mother who has a 6-year-old daughter she’s divorced is back out looking for love as well as that she is trying to build up her career as an assistant MUA and is offered a big job, I don’t want to give the whole story away but it is such a good book. I’ve got about 40 pages left, and then I will be waiting for the sequel to be released!

My next favourite of the month is the Nivea face cream. As the weather has been so cold and I have naturally quite dry skin it makes it even worse, so I use this cream on any of the dryer patches on my face and apply it before I go to bed and in the morning. I like to use this cream when my skin is dryer than normal because it’s thicker than my Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser, i think it’s a bit more nourishing and hydrating on my skin.

I LOVE candles! Since it’s the start of a new year I wanted to use something new that i hadn’t tried before. Because i own so many candles my mum actually put some wax melts into my stocking at christmas and i decided to save them until the new year. I’ve used this melt about 5 times and the scent is still going really well i love Yankee candle and the idea of wax melts because they are definitely a lot less money and they give off the same amount of pay off with scent in my opinion. I really love the smell of pink sands and i will definitely be repurchasing!

I haven’t been too well health wise over this past month so I haven’t been wearing much makeup because I had to go out anywhere or really been feeling like wanting to wear it. The one thing I have been using for when I do go out is my collection lasting perfection concealer, its great for covering up the dark circles under my eyes due to my lack of sleep! I feel like I look a lot more alive after I have put a bit of this concealer as it helps to put a bit of colour back into my face which is great ahah.

I’ve also been catching up on lots of tv over February, I’ve really been loving Jack Whitehall’s series Travels with my Father which is on Netflix currently, I find myself laughing pretty much the whole way through each episode. There are also new episodes of Call the Midwife each week on BBC1 which I absolutely love its one of my all time favourite shows, it’s really a cosy show and i just love everything about it even if it does make me cry every time!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and next month hopefully I’ll be feeling better and there will be a few more things for me to show you!

My Top 5 Netflix Shows

Hello lovelies, I’ve really being enjoying all of these shows on Netflix currently and I wanted to share them with you, if you’re bored and are looking for a new show to check out definitely give these a go!

Dynasty

First on my list is Dynasty i loved this show one of the reasons being because it has two strong female leads. My boyfriend and I binge watched the whole of season one over a couple of days! we found that it was something both of us really enjoyed watching and there are new episodes out now that i can’t wait to watch! This first season was great, its a really enticing series that i would recommend to anyone who enjoys Drama and mystery.

Pretty Little Liars

I was a lot later to the PLL bandwagon but once I started I would binge watch it every nigh (i was hooked ahah). To be honest I did think it got rather confusing and quite hard to follow from the end of season 6 because there were so many different A’s popping up one after the other! But the first few seasons were amazing and I loved them, definitely worth watching  🙂

Atypical

My mum recommended the series to me so I thought I’d try it out, and I thought it was great. It raises awareness of autism and what it can be like for someone who has it and their family. I found there was also a lot of comedy throughout the series which made it even better. The show focuses on Sam (the main character) with his journey of finding his first girlfriend and also follows his sister who is learning that she needs to become less protective over her brother to help him in his own life. I hope they’re making a second season!

Reign

I stubbled across this series and did know if I was going to like it because it was a historical drama, but i fell in love! I thought it was amazing  and I could really connect with the characters which made it even better for me. There are lots of strong female leads in this show which is great. It’s a really interesting series to watch as you get to learn all about what happened to Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth and the people in their lives at this time (1557 onwards) but it was made in such a great way so it was not boring but the complete opposite!

Outnumbered

This has been one of my all-time favourite shows for a number of years and I can watch all of the seasons over and over again (i don’t think i’ll ever get bored of it). It’s a British sitcom and I think it’s a great show to watch if you want a light-hearted watch and it’s not hard to follow it never fails to make me laugh. I like to use it as background noise sometimes whilst I’m doing work or if I just feel like watching something good that I don’t have to pay too much attention to and will still know what’s going on. I would definitely recommend giving it a watch, there are 5 seasons on Netflix and a few Christmas specials.

What are your current Netflix faves? Let me know in the comments so i can check them out!
