February Favourites

Why, hello end of did you appear so soon? For me, February was a quick month - lots of things to do as well as lots of people to see. It was also the start of some positive things in my life. I am at this point in my life where I want change, I want a new direction. I want to be focused career-wise as I have been lost for so long. I don't want to flit between jobs: instead I want to climb as high as I can go. In a nutshell, February has been the month I have been inspired to take action and do something with my career. 

Despite my slight tangent above, February was also the month that I tried a few new products, some of which have found their way into my February favourites.

Seche Debutant Nail Varnish:

This nail varnish has been one of my favourites this month. Its ability to stay on your nails is incredible, not to mention the baby pink colour. I posted a full review of this product which you can find here.

Real Techniques Powder Brush:

Real Techniques Powder Brush

This brush is one of the fluffiest brushes I have ever used. The bristles are super soft and it feels amazing on your skin. I use this brush for powder application as it is perfect for that. Overall, I am a massive fan of Real Techniques brushes and I have quite a nice collection building up. I still don't own them all though....

Garnier Fresh Essentials Refreshing cleansing lotion:

Garnier Fresh Essentials Cleansing Lotion

I normally use Johnson's Cleansing lotion on my skin,but when my last bottle run out, I fancied a bit of a change and picked this up. I really like this as it is not only good at taking make-up off but it has the most amazing smell (and yes that is important to me :)).

Botanics Hydrating Night Cream:

Like my cleansing lotion, my night cream also ran out and so I had to purchase a new one. I've not really read much about night creams online so I was a bit in the dark about which one to go for next (I was using Johnson's night cream before). However, I had heard some good things about Boots' Botanic range so I decided to pick up their night cream. I like this product as it is super moisturising and, like the cleansing lotion, has an amazing smell. Admittedly, I sometimes just smell the pot as it smells so good....

Amazon Kindle:

Amazon Kindle

Recently I have rekindled my love for my Kindle.  At the moment I am reading 'Life of Pi' which is amazing so far. I haven't seen the film, which I believe won several oscars the other night, but I will when it comes to DVD. I also have lined up to read: 'The Great Gatesby' and 'Les Miserables' as well as a few others. Any other kindle recommendations?
