This month I haven't touched mascara and have completely fallen in love with my DIY, at home eyelash extensions. I've had eyelash extensions done in a salon 3 times, all before going on holidays. For some reason in January I really got thinking about the convenience and look of the lashes but couldn't part with the cash to get them done. Instead I bought Couture Lashes loose group lashes and glue and took the step to doing them myself. I was a bit hesitant and fully prepared for it to be a bit of a failure. I can't believe the results- I'm hooked. Over the month I've done 2 infills making which have been quick and easy. I wish I'd tried it sooner!
Since mentioning this concealer in my September Favourites last year I could quite easily have had it in every favourites post since then. I use it everyday that I put on makeup and recently I've been skipping out the foundation and just relying on this brightening, creamy concealer to make me look a bit more awake and concealed. It can be a bit tricky to get a hold of this in Boots or Superdrug but it's worth stocking up when you do catch it in stock.
This perfume was a Christmas sale purchase and has been my weekend/special occasions scent ever since. It's guaranteed to get compliments and it's one of those perfumes that you can still smell yourself, you don't end up immune! I love it.
I've been running 3 times a week every week in February and my Fitbit has been key in keeping me motivated. It's good to keep track of the time and effort put in as well as how many calories burnt. I've also been using the Fitbit app to help me drink more water. It's funny how a little watch and app can contribute so much to a weight loss and healthy lifestyle. Also, Fitbit's customer service is second to none. I used to have a black one but it stopped working and within a week, and after a couple of emails, I had a shiny new purple one through my door.
If you've read my Slimming World posts you'll know I'm on mission Shredding for the Wedding but I'm the type of person who needs a little treat to keep me on the straight and narrow. So I've been exploring the world of low syn snacks and I've developed a bit of an obsession with Crunchies. Whether it's funsize ones, medium multi-pack ones or a great big 32g one they satisfy my sweet tooth and are worth every syn.
Riverdale on Netflix
My new Netflix discovery this month is the TV series Riverdale. It's an American, Teen drama that's been compared to Pretty Little Liars and has me hooked. With weekly episodes you binge to get caught up but then it's the painful wait for a new episode each Friday. It's quite an easy watch with the frequent twists that keeps you on your toes.
