Another month of 2016 coming to an end, crazy eh! February has been fairly quiet but busy at the same time (does that even make sense!?). I never really got up to anything too exciting but as usual life took over and I’ve been feeling rather overwhelmed with blogging, work and uni at the same time. I am kind of preparing myself to be hit with a ton of workload over the next month as uni deadlines are looming. Sigh. I am trying to be a lot more organised though and get on with the work much earlier so hopefully I won’t be suffering too much! In terms of blogging, I have to admit I have been feeling like I am in a bit of a rut lately. I have been trying to mix things up a little and move away from constant reviews after reviews although I am struggling for ideas and I always feel a little out of my comfort zone with some things. It’s difficult trying to add a little more creative edge to my posts when I don’t have a lot of time to work on them so hopefully this is something that I will conquer in the next while especially when I have more free time. Of course, if anyone has any feedback on what kind of posts you like then that would be much appreciated!
Anyway woes aside, I’ve been getting pretty organised this month. I am pretty sure I have mentioned before how I’ve been trying to downsize my wardrobe and basically de-clutter all my junk. I’ve really cut down the amount of unused clothes taking over my wardrobe which feels like such a relief and weight off my shoulders. I am also at the moment trying to rearrange how I organise all my clothes too and after watching a Lily Pebbles video I discovered a much better way to organise my t-shirts in my drawers. Using Marie Kondo’s method, my clothes now sit upright instead of stacked which means I can now see all my clothes in front of me rather than simply picking the first in the pile. After cleaning out one of my drawers I also made some room for my nail polish collection. I’ve always wanted it stored in my drawers so I am super happy to have it laid out like this. Hopefully over the next month I can do some more organising and get my wardrobe sorted! Can you tell I take pride in weird things?
My organising ways couldn’t come at a better time too as Spring is definitely on the horizon. I don’t know about anyone else but I am forever getting sick of the cold and rainy weather. The last week though has seen the sun come out and much lighter mornings and evenings too which has me super excited for the new season to begin! I can’t wait to start wearing lighter clothing and start on my Spring clothing wishlist! So hopefully next month there will be a lot of Spring stuff on the blog!
Catch up on February posts: Tartelette 2 palette review, Mac 90s nude lip edit, Skincare empties, Tips for on a budget, White chocolate chunk brownies recipe, Inside my Beauty sample box and How to overcome Winter blues.

I don’t think I can quite believe that its March already! I think thats my starting line for every favourites posts but hey time goes fast! Anyway if you seen my favourites last month you may recall my lack of makeup but now since I’m back at uni and have some sort of life now I have been picking up a few newbies over the month and getting back to my usual makeup routine.
The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil – You may recall seeing this before in a review I did which you can check out here. I love this cleanser. Long are the days of removing my makeup with wipes and a damp cloth (extravagant, I know!). This cleanser is perfect, it removes every trace of my makeup and makes my skin feel fab as well as being a good affordable option at £10!
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Red Pepper – When it comes to liquid lipsticks I have always been put off. I don’t like the idea of putting something wet and sticky on my lips which is why I keep my lip-gloss use to a minimum and why I never really wanted to purchase this in the first place. As usual though due to phenomenal hype by so many bloggers I caved and bought it and I love it. It is super long lasting and is such a beautiful bright red which is great for daily wear.
Benefit Roller Lash – I apologize in advance if you are sick of hearing about this little gem which is Benefit’s new release. I don’t want to say too much as I may touch upon this one a little later but its probably one of the best mascaras I’ve ever used! It really does what it says on the tin!
ASOS earrings – Earrings are something I wear on a daily basis (oh the irony of not wearing any right now) and I always get sick of wearing the same basic boring earrings all the time until I seen what asos had to offer. I seen Suzie from Hello October mention these earrings in a haul and had to snap them up! They are just so different and I have had so many compliments on them, they are just fab and I have my eye on a few more from asos!
Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover – When it comes to nail polish removing its just no fun! I hate the tedious and boring job of having to remove nail polish that just wont budge. I heard a lot about this remover and picked it up and oh my has my life transformed! This really is magic, you simply stick your nail in the pot and give it a twist around and out it comes with no sign of nail polish, wow!
What have you been loving lately?
Another month, another music playlist. This month’s playlist was pretty much dominated by two albums from McBusted and Kodaline. I’m going to see McBusted live next month for the second time *excited dance* and I only got round to listening to their album this month and I love it! The album is very heavily Busted style so if you were a Busted fan you’ll like this! Being a huge Kodaline fan I was super ecstatic for their new album Coming up for Air and I’ve been listening to this non-stop throughout the month. I was a huge fan of their first album In a Perfect World which is one of my favourite albums ever so I had high expectations for the new album. So far so good, I am really loving Honest and The One but I don’t think this album will ever live up to their first one as it has quite a different sound nevertheless I still think its great! There is also a catchy number from Maroon 5 in there, the video for that one is great too!

Taking a break from Fashion Week, This months pick of the month is this cute Diamond wrap white skort from Topshop. The skort is becoming ever so popular recently and with spring fast approaching its the perfect addition to your wardrobe. At a price of £40/$80 this skort is a must have and can be worn for a casual daytime look or can even be dressed up for a night out. Teamed with black for a monochromatic look which is a key trend for spring this season is the right way to wear this white skort to stay on trend for Spring. Are you a fan of the skort?
