F A V O U R I T E S / F E B R U A R Y


February has drawn to a close. That cheeky little month sandwiched in between Winter and Spring has made way for March and hopefully means brighter days, less of a nip in the air and the winter coats getting hung up. Being a Farmers daughter is also means the beginning of an even busier time of year for my dad - lambing time.

I have never really been a monthly favourites kind gal but hey, doing new things is never a bad thing! So without further ado let me introduce my favourites of February 2014. (I don't know why but in my head the Radio 2 Pick of the Pops music played and coming in at number 10 ran through my mind?! If that idea works for you get ready to count down with Tony Blackburn!)

MUSIC

This month saw me fall back in love with Gaslight Anthem. Last summer they were probably my most listened to tracks but over Autumn and winter other artists popped up on my radar leaving Gaslight in the summer of 2013. There is something about there tracks that is just so easy to listen too. There lyrics are well structured and having meaning rather than poorly structured lyrics that mean diddly-squat.Think Black Eyed Peas My Humps if you need some inspiration for meaningless song lyrics...

Other music I've enjoyed in Feb: Gabrielle Aplin, The 1975, Sam Smith, Lily Allen

BOOKS

February was the month of Paris Revealed by Stephen Clarke. It seems like months ago that I finished this perfect little venture into Parisian life but it was about 2 weeks ago! How time flies! I have a book review of this absolutely perfect piece of work - here - so I won't go into too much detail/any!

I started my March 2014 book in February - shhhh! - which is Daphne Du Maurier Jamaica Inn which by Chapter 3 has completely and utterly swallowed me up. It is too wonderful. More on that at the end of March. WARNING: Do not research authors on Wiki if you value the mystery of a plot line.


FASHION


This month saw my first day in my new job so naturally I had to adopt a smart casual dress sense. To be fair, I would consider myself a smart/casual kind of dresser anyway so this wasn't too much of a struggle for me. The most exciting part was being able to wear my own clothes rather than a minging uniform 5 days out of 7.



Topshop Printed Skirt (Very old) / H&M Leather Trousers / Zara (Sale) Spotty Blouse 
BEAUTY

Another perk of my new job is nail polish. In my previous place of employment this was prohibited so naturally I went a little cray-cray. To the extent that I whacked on some fake nails and painted them red! I feel so Jane Russell.


Kiss Round Nails (Filed & Cut down) Available from Boots / L'Oreal Miceller Water (Review) / Barry M Lipgloss in No4

And that is my February 2014 favourites! What have you been liking this February?
