February Favourites...

It's monthly favourite time again and after what felt like the longest January in the history of time, I can't believe how quickly February went. Emotionally it was an odd month and being on a self-imposed spending ban means that Feb's faves are a little thin on the ground.

Some Kind Of Wonderful
If you couldn't already tell, I've somewhat recently come out of a long-term relationship so I was slightly hesitant to read Giovanna Fletcher's latest book. The tale of Lizzy who's boyfriend dumps her after 10 years rather than proposing was actually the perfect book to read. There were so many passages that resonated with me and despite it being fictional a little part of me felt hope that things do get better when you don't get the happy ever after you imagined. Aside from the personal/emotional connection, I love the world's that Giovanna creates and this one was no different! 

Hourglass Bronzer
Anyone else in some desperate need for some sunshine? I'm pale at the best of times so, in Winter, I start to resemble Casper the Friendly Ghost. I'm not that adventurous when it comes to make up, when I find something I like, I stick to it. For years I've been using Nars Laguna Bronzer but when I was in Liberty earlier this month, I couldn't resist stopping by the Hourglass counter. I picked up Luminous Bronze Light and so far have been loving it. I do use it very sparingly as it is very warm toned and can go on a bit heavy if I'm not careful but in general I\m enjoying switching up my daily products. I've even used this as an eyeshadow on days that I'm feeling bold!

New Hair
I used to be the person who hated going to the hairdressers, I'd go twice a year and that felt like too much. About a year and a half ago I decided to try George Northwood after seeing someone post about it on Instagram and boy am I glad I did. I am now a woman obsessed. I can't get enough - if I could go every month I would! I popped back in a couple of week's ago and of course popped the new do up on Insta

For anyone who has actually looked at my 'Behind The Blonde' page, you'll know that I did a Dance degree. Since graduating in 2013 (god that makes me feel old), I haven't taken any dance classes. Over Christmas, I decided that it was time to get back to what I loved doing for so many years and low and behold, I joined a Tap Company. I've been going since January and it's become a highlight of my week! The steps came flooding back after 8 years off tapping, now for my brain to catch up...
