February Favourites

February Favourites

Good Morning Guys!

So it's fair to say February has absolutely flown by, how crazy is it that March is here already! I  know I've been quieter than normal this past few weeks but it's really because I've just been doing other things and I haven't had the time to blog. However I am ready to report back to you guys on what I've been loving this past month. Expect a mixture of everything from Films, Books, Make Up & Food...

Fifty Shades of Grey
So, let me give you a bit of background info. When there was a huge hype surrounding the books about 2 years ago, I read the first book and about 2 chapters of the second one. It was a good book but it wasn't anything particularly memorable. It wasn't one of them books I read and thought wow. However when the film came out I thought I'd give it a go and see if it lives up to the expectations and honestly, I was blown away. I thought the film was fantastic. I feel the directors really captured the story line in the classiest way possible. Before the film came out I had heard so many comments claiming the film is borderline porn which created this prior expectation in my head of it being tacky. Yet it was completely the opposite and the story-line has more depth than it's given credit it for. Fifty Shades is a romantic, unconventional love story that depicts a wealthy, successful but somewhat tormented individual and how he comes to fall in love. You get to see the characters grow and evolve, it's great. I actually loved the film so much that I decided to give the book another go and hopefully read the whole trilogy in preparation for the sequel films.

Una Brennan Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Radiance Day Cream 
Well it seems the only downside to this product is how much of a mouthful it is to articulate! Okay so this is my first ever purchase from Una Brennan. I've heard so many people rave about her products and her range isn't overly expensive so I thought I'd give it a go. One product I can never seem to find that I love and stick to is a Moisturizer. I used the Clarins Daily Energizer Cream before this one which I really like but I just found it was so expensive for the amount of product you get. I think it literally lasted me about 2 weeks and  I just couldn't justify spending £23 a pot twice a month. Anyway, without going off on too much of a tangent - I love the Una Brennan Day Cream, it's arguably my favourite Moisturizer so far - it hydrates, it sits perfectly under make up and makes my face feel soothed and protected. Arguably the only thing that I'm not ever so keen on is the rose scent of the product. I know a lot of people love the smell of Rose - my mums obsessed with it! Although it's not my favourite smell in the world, it is something I am willing to sacrifice purely because the product is so good. You kind of get used to the scent after a while anyway. The first time I applied this product Kyle was like 'you smell like the soap in Tunisia'  and no I don't think this was a compliment! This Day Cream is £12.99 from Boots which I think is fairly reasonable. My first tube lasted me for just over a month. I've actually been using this day and night so if it was just used in the day in would last twice as long. I've already stocked up on another tube, ready for when this one is empty and I may have also purchased a few other Una Brennan products along side that as well...

Chi Chocolate Coconut Milk
Oh my god. This drink is quite possibly the tastiest drink I've ever tasted! I first tried this on  my debut trip to Whole Foods & felt quite sad at the realization of not being able to get hold of it anywhere locally. This feeling of sadness was short lived after I discovered Asda have just started stocking it, how exciting! I literally bleeted in excitement when Kyle & I discovered it down the Fizzy drinks isle. So if you like Chocolate but don't want the guilt then I would totally urge you to try one of these drinks. It's like a thin consistency milk shake that tastes like a little sip of heaven.

Nana Nice Cream
Yet another fairly recent discovery of mine. As always, this month I've been trying to switch things up in the kitchen in a bid to get more inventive with food. Have you ever fancied having Ice Cream for breakfast without the guilt? Well now you can and again without even feeling an ounce of guilt afterwards! Simply blend 2 banana's, 1/2 cup of Yogurt & add a TBSP Peanut Butter then pop it in the Freezer over night to enjoy for Breakfast or as a Dessert. It's literally tastes like Ice Cream I'm obsessed with it!

Pretty Little Liars
I have been obsessively watching this show on Netflix every night and some days have even had a full PLL binge day! This show is amazing - it's quite girly but has such a good story line and really keeps you hooked. At the end of every episode you're like 'oh my god who did that' or 'I need to watch the next episode right now!'. I'm sure you've probably seen PLL theories of who 'A' is floating around Twitter,
