February Photo Diary

February just seems to have flown by but then I suppose it is the shortest month of the year! I've had a lovely month with it being Valentine's Day and having an excuse to indulge in some chocolates, despite the weather being cold, wet and miserable. I can't wait for spring...

Princess Marie Hot Chocolate
On a particularly cold day, I treated myself to a cute little hot chocolate in my adorable Disney Marie mug from their Magical Moments collection. I added some fluffy whipped cream and tiny pink, lilac and white candy heart sprinkles which I thought was really fitting for Valentine's Day. I also found this sweet little box of pink and white heart-shaped marshmallows in The Card Factory and treated myself to a little bowl of them whilst watching Gossip Girl.

Diamond Pink Makeup
I haven't splurged on many new makeup items for a little while but I did treat myself to the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick a little before Christmas as I couldn't resist. I mentioned it in my Valentine's Day Gift Guide blog post as it has the most gorgeous pale pink and twinkling rose gold packaging and I love the shade of the lipstick with the subtle hint of sparkle. I've also been loving my adorable Too Faced Diamond Highlighter in the shade 'Fancy Pink Diamond' recently as it gives the prettiest pink flush with a hint of shimmer. I'm planning on writing a blog post all about the two Too Faced Diamond Highlighters that I own so let me know if that is something you would like to see.

Pink Ruffled Shoes And Valentine's Accessories
I purchased these gorgeous pink ruffled heels from Pretty Little Thing a little while back as I thought they were the prettiest and they would be perfect for a Valentine's date if you were getting dressed up. My husband and I decided to have a really cosy little evening in instead for Valentine's Day. He treated me to a beautiful bunch of soft pink roses (my fave!) and we had a delicious love heart red velvet chocolate brownie for dessert. I also loved burning my Love Hearts and Chocolate Strawberries wax melts from Glam Wax which both smell so sugary and sweet!

Fairytale Swan Mug
I know that I've mentioned this whimsical Freya Swan mug from Sass And Belle a few times before on my blog and my Instagram since I purchased it but I just absolutely love it. It makes any hot drink look so much prettier and more fairytale-esque and is it just me that thinks  your drinks taste even better out of cute mugs? I love the dainty eyelashes on the swan, pink blushing cheeks and the gorgeous gold feather details as well as the soft milkshake pink lining on the inside of the mug. I also have the matching bowl and salt and pepper shakers which I adore too!

Sugary Marshmallow Tanning Mousse
I came across this new tanning mousse from St Tropez whilst I was scrolling through Instagram and was instantly intrigued as it had a sugary marshmallow scent. I don't use fake tan very often but I do think that as we are coming into the spring and summer months that it would be nice to add a little bit of colour. I love the ombre pink and white packaging of the bottle and I can't wait to try it out for a little golden glow.

Girly Unicorn Pancakes
It was Pancake Day last week which is one of my favourite days of the year, I mean who doesn't love an excuse to eat Nutella pancakes topped with strawberries and mini marshmallows? I decided to make some unicorn pancakes which were meant to be a little more pretty and pink than these ones and I decided to top them with fluffy cream and mini candy heart sprinkles which were yummy.

I hope you've all had a lovely February! Which one of my photos is your favourite?
