February 2014 Beauty Favourites

February has been a great month for me in terms of blogging and just in general. I got to go to London at the beginning of the month and saw Taylor Swift (which I have a whole post about, if you fancy a read) which was amazing! Plus I've been trying lots of new products, I even bought a floppy hat, yep, this month was very eventful haha!

Anywho here are a few things that really stood out to me:

Oribe Apres Beach Wave & Shine Spray
Oribe Apres Beach Wave & Shine Spray
I've been really low maintenance - aka lazy, with my hair this month and this spray has been a huge help. I just spritz it through wet hair, put my hair in a plait and go to sleep, simples. It really gives your hair a nice texture and plaiting it overnight helps achieve pretty boho, beachy waves. Can Orbie do no wrong?

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso
I wore this lipstick to see T-Swift at the start of the month and have loved it ever since, it has amazing staying power and doesn't leave my lips dry. If you are after a long lasting red lipstick definitely pick one of these up!

Caudalie Divine Oil
I've had a sample of this multi use oil for ages but it took me till this month to finally try it and I was very impressed. I love using a tiny bit when my hair's wet, it really makes your hair soft and helps my tangle teezer glide though so much easier. Though be aware, a little really does go a long way, it's so easy to use too much and be on your way to oilyville.

L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate
Despite the fact that I'm meticulous at moisturising my face, my body really doesn't get the same attention, or it didn't until I picked up this luxurious body cream. I can't stand feeling sticky, luckily this cream sinks in almost immediately, so I'm not flapping around for 20 minutes waiting for my limbs to dry. Plus it smells amazing exactly like the Almond Oil, yum!

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Topcoat
I never thought I'd find a topcoat that could give Seche Vite a run for it's money but this one from Nails Inc really does! You can read my review in full here.

Deborah Lippmann Super Quick Drying Basecoat
This has been my go-to base coat over the last month, it creates a barrier between your nail polish and your nail, so there's no staining. Yellow nails are not cute!

I thought I would start adding a few blogs that I've been loving this month, as I love finding new gems, plus they all have gorgeous photography and are stunning, give these ladies some blog love!

  1. I really want to try the Almond Moisturiser! I have the oil and I love it :)

    1. The oil is sensational isn't it, the mousturiser is just as lovely, pricy but I think it would make a fab gift :)

  2. that almond milk concentrate looks very intriguing. i agree about the pricy factor but hey, if it works, it works right?
    A Beautiful Zen

    1. It's expensive but totally worth it :)
