February Favourites 2018

Wow, another month of 2018 passed with a blink. Does anyone else feel like life is just passing by or is that just me?! Of course, I had to end February with another favourites post!

I actually got sent these Marc Jacobs Highliners a while ago courtesy of Influenster, but during February I found myself reaching for them a lot. I didn't think the pink shades (Pop-ular and Pink of Me), would be my cup of tea since I tend to wear black eyeliner constantly; but I really enjoyed them. The formula is creamy and easy to apply, and my god they have some staying power! I had swatches on my hand and they didn't budge all day even after a lot of handwashing!

In my recent search for cruelty-free products since the new year, I started using the Superdrug Dry Shampoo and thank god I picked it up. Not only is it super affordable, but it works just as well as the Batiste Dry Shampoo's I used for a good 5 or 6 years. As I have coloured hair, I tend to only wash my hair twice a week, three times at a push if I'm doing something special - so dry shampoo is a godsend for me. 

During February I attended an extra-curricular Gellux Gel Nail course to become qualified in them alongside my college course (I passed, yay!). Since then I've worn gel nails, done by moi, every single day. I have to be honest, before doing the course I had never had gel nails and didn't see the hype, but now I'm totally on board the gel nail train. They're stronger and last so much longer. 

In the January sales, I picked up these gorgeous black boots for only £6 from Primark. Let's just take a moment to appreciate the detail on these and for that amazing price! During the last month, these boots have been a staple in my wardrobe. The slight platform sole and chunky heel means they're pretty comfortable for everyday use so they're perfect for me. 

There are a few TV shows I've loved this month but new on my list is Mindhunter. It's SO interesting, and the best way I can describe it without giving away too much is that there are a couple FBI agents conducting research by interviewing serial killers to find out the psychology behind it all, and why they are the way that they are. I hope that makes enough sense to make you watch it! 

Of course, is it even a blog post by me if I don't mention Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in one way or another? Eric and I just finished season 3, and it got so much better towards the end. I have to admit I thought it was losing it's 'flare' for a while but it really picked back up and got funnier!  

Last week I was hit by a brick with flu strapped to it... at least that's how it felt. In my moment of need from my sick bed, I had no shows to watch that I wasn't already watching with Eric, so I thought I'd give Riverdale a try since so many people spoke about it on Twitter. Not going to lie, it's now my guilty pleasure. I literally binged watched the whole 2 seasons on Netflix from bed within 4 days. It's like a cute Pretty Little Liars.

I had a lot of time for TV this month as you can tell! Hopefully there'll be more beauty or lifetyle related products in next months post! I hope you all had a lovely February!
