Holy guacamole I can’t believe it’s that time again already – where the heck has February gone? It’s been a pretty speedy (and ever so slightly stressful) month and I think my favourites reflect my rather manic lifestyle quite a bit…

So, lets kick things off with my one skincare item for the month – the REN Active 7 Radiant Eye GelThis lightweight eye treatment has been helping my puffy and over-tired eyes to feel a bit more human each morning and works wonders in terms of cooling and brightening the eye area. A must for any sleepy people out there. Another must-have for hiding any tiredness is the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealerthe perfect drugstore dupe for my much-loved NARS Creamy Concealer and one which has been working miracles on my dark circles and any blemishes. I don’t think I’ve gone out without it since I first purchased it…

Next up is a slightly more glamorous product in the form of the Dolce & Gabbana The Pressed Powdera beautifully lightweight translucent powder that helps to keep foundation firmly in place – a must for long working days – while helping to rid your face of any unwanted shine. My go-to for all on-the-go make up needs this month has been my Laura Mercier Laura’s Colour Favourites Palettepurely because of its incredible handiness. You have everything you need all available in one slimline palette that fits into even the smallest of clutches. A lifesaver.

I’ve had really chapped lips during the past few weeks (mmm, nice) and the Soap & Glory A Great Kisser Peppermint Lip Balm has been my most trusted lip product – the minty scent smells really nice and fresh and the glossy finish works perfectly if you’re looking to add a little somethin’ somethin’ without wearing any lipstick. On the occasions that I have wanted a quick slick of colour, the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Audaciousthe perfect bright orangey red which adds a bit of boldness to the lip and sticks around for hours on end.

Two non-beauty favourites to finish off February. My FujiFilm Instax Mini has re-ignited my love for physical photographs. Plus, not having the chance to edit/filter/delete unwanted images has resulted in some seriously entertaining photos – I can’t wait to get ’em all up on my wall. Porter Magazine is an amazing new high-end magazine launched by the lovely people at Net-A-Porter – well worth a read.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely February!
