February - 2017 Monthly Faves

February - 2017 Monthly Faves

It's already the second month of the year, time's going by quickly!

February. The month of love and sunshine, when it finally comes out to play in time for Spring. It's my favourite month of the year and this year it was the month I turned 21. The big 2-1. Little, dwarf, babyfaced Shan is now 21. Adulthood is pretty scary.

I have quite a few favourites this month, some were birthday gifts, and some are things I have loved for quite some time but more so this month!


Maybelline Angel Push Up Lashes

I really don't get on well with chunky mascara wands. My lashes are unfortunately quite short so thicker wands sometimes work and other times fail. So when this product came out, I knew I had to purchase it! The tiny thin wand grabs every last lash and leaves them looking long and luscious. Love love love it.

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette

Hands down my favourite palette right now. The textured shadows are blinding, and I have had so many compliments while wearing them. Absolutely worth the money for any glitter lover and a must have for any makeup collection. I am especially loving the shade 'Fling' a deep red that really compliments my green eyes. Huda has changed the makeup game once again.

Too Faced Hangover Primer

I got this beauty for my birthday and have been using it every day since. I love anything by Too Faced, and their packaging is too difficult to resist. This is a really fab primer that works a treat, especially when you're trying to cover up an awful hangover as I was on my birthday weekend!

Fashion & Accessories

Birthday Dress

Since gaining weight, I have steered clear of anything that clings to my body. I've been living in t-shirt dresses and nights out are spent covering as much skin as possible. I can't help it, that's how I am most comfortable. It's all about the face for me, but as it was my 21st I wanted to step out of my comfort zone!

This lovely dress by New Look made me feel quite elegant actually! The red complimented my makeup look, and I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. I will definitely purchase this style of dress in the future.

Moschino Bag

I've never been one to enjoy designer items. The only name's I will spend a lot on are makeup brands. Clothes/Bags just never appealed to me until now. I had so much birthday money I decided, why not get my first designer bag? I love Moschino's quirky style, so this bag was perfect. My favourite colour and style by far. It looks and feels expensive. You get what you pay for, for sure.

February - 2017 Monthly Faves


I've always admired the look of Pandora's charm bracelets. I'm an incredibly sentimental person so receiving my first bracelet from my Best friend made me cry a little. Amber and Amelia bought me the 'S' and 'Best Friends' Charm, my mum got me the 'Daughter' charm, and I treated myself to the cute little elephant. I'm already so addicted to buying charms!

My lovely Grandparents also spoiled me and got me this beautiful, intricate bracelet from Pandora too. Gorgeous.

TV & Film

This is Us

What a phenomenal show. I'm so glad this TV series is finally making headlines for its fantastic portrayal of family life. In just one series it has taken on Racism, Stillborn trauma, death in the household, weight struggles and so much more. There has not been one episode that hasn't reduced me to tears. 

This show must be amazing, not just because of my great taste in TV, but also due to the fact after only one series it has already been renewed for a second and third season. That is unheard of! No show gets two renewals in one go, so This is Us must be something special. You won't regret watching - Who doesn't fancy Milo Ventimiglia?

Prison Break

You guessed it. I'm still obsessed with Prison Break after re-watching it in time for the anticipated fifth series. I can't get enough of you, Wentworth Miller. 

February - 2017 Monthly Faves

February was a fabulous month filled with celebration, happiness and lots of love. I hope March treats us all just as well.
