{Lifestyle} Favourite Things – February ’17

I had a few stand out products this month, most of which came into my possession this February! Basically, it’s a whole collection of items which I fell in love with at first sight… and, they held up all month!

This month’s favourites are mostly beauty items, with the odd fashion piece thrown in, and a cactus for good measure.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner | Sephora
This tiny eyeliner was a birthday gift to myself. I have seen people rave about this product and I needed to know if it lived up to its hype. Turns out, so far, it has! I’ve never been able to apply eyeliner easier, quicker or with more precision. I like it so much that I just bought the full-sized version too!

Italian Summer Fig Eau De Toilette | The Body Shop
While Kody and I were out and about this month I noticed that this perfume was on sale. I think it is now discontinued (*sniff, sniff*), hence it being on sale, and not wanting to miss out, Kody bought me a bottle. We already knew I was fond of the scent from when a sample was included in my January bellabox from last year!

Nike Air Zoom Structure 20 | The Athletes Foot
This month I was lucky enough to have a little money left over to finally buy a good pair of workout shoes. I told the lady who was fitting me for these joggers that I was walking/jogging in hiking boots and she nearly fell over! The Athletes Foot are wonderful at what they do, I was fitted with my first pair of shoes, but after taking them home and discovering they actually hurt my feet after 30 or so minutes of wear I took them back to be re-fitted. They will re-fit you as many times as it takes until you find your fit, and you can return your shoes after you have worn them, as long as it is within 29 days (I think, at least that is how it was explained to me in store). I got re-fitted and I am absolutely in love with my new pair of Nikes!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette | Mecca
I have been longing for this palette ever since it was released the first time and I sadly missed out. Kodys mum managed to get her hands on it for my 23rd birthday (along with the other Sweet Peach items), and they made for a delicious smelling present. Hopefully more on this soon!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette | Mecca
When I heard that the Sweet Peach palette was being released again, but this time with a full collection I was over the moon! I was almost more excited for this gorgeous looking Glow palette than the eyeshadows… almost…

Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Gloss – Tickle Me Peach | Mecca
I was also gifted one lip gloss along with the Sweet Peach Palettes, Tickle Me Peach. I’m absolutely in love with the shade, I’m not usually a lip gloss kinda gal, but I could get used to these! I wore this to Theo’s 1st birthday bash (along with the Kookai top below) and it was stunning! Absolute winner!

Kookai Tank Top | Thrifted
I bought this bright orange tank top from a thrift store last month and I instantly fell in love with it. I am definitely more of a muted tone girl, but there was just something about this Kookai top that just screamed summer. I wore it recently to Theo’s 1st birthday bash and it was just my favourite outfit of the month!

Bunny Ear Cactus | Thrifted
I have been longing for my own bunny eared cactus since the very start of my indoor plant obsession, but I never found one at a convenient time. This February Kody and I attended a swap mart, and who did I see? This gorgeous bunny! It was love at first sight! I’ve got a few name options in the works for this one though and I need a bit of help deciding, so cast your votes below (in the comments)! Keeping with my Disney theme I am tossing up between; Thumper (Bambi), Skippy (Robin Hood), Rodger (Rodger Rabbit), or the alternate female name, Judy Hopps (Zootopia).

What were your favourites this month?
Did you get anything amazing?
What would you name my little cactus friend?

Thanks for stopping by.

    I’d love to know how you go with the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I’m really not sure whether to buy it or not!

      So far I’m really loving it Di! I’m currently writing my review of the range (but it is taking its time as life keeps getting in the way), so keep your eyes open for that post! Xx
