February 28th • Posted in Favourites
Can’t really believe how quickly February flew by: not really complaining because the coming of March means Spring is around the corner (I’m done with winter!) and Easter is next month and sunny days can finally roll on, but it seems like yesterday that I was typing my January favourites! Here’s what I’ve loved this month…
Kolleen Point Lace Wrap Flat Shoes – Pieces
I’ve always admired girls who looked lovely in pointed shoes and have fallen completely in love with the lace/wrap shoes trend lately, so when I spotted these beauties in the ASOS sales this month I thought, even if it would have implied stepping out of my comfort zone, I should have given them a go! And weirdly enough they look good on me (I would have never believed it!): I’m excited to wear them next month with tights and skirts/dresses as well in warmer month with bare legs and feet at their very best.
You know me and my obsession for teas. And mugs. I’ve been completely fully in love with Dunedin Sencha Cherry Rose Tea* this month and I’m very sad to say the cup in the picture was the very last one as I’m already out of it! This one is just the most amazingly-tasting green tea, with a hint of roses and a delicious fruity cherry aroma. And the mug is from IKEA and is my new very favourite – love the pattern as well as the fact that it’s bigger than usual (means more tea for me!).
I’m not usually a jam fan at all, yet this month we decided to give the organic blueberry jam from IKEA a whirl and… I am obsessed. This is the most delicious jam I’ve ever tasted, super sweet, intense in flavour, rich and with small blueberry pieces still in it. I would eat spoonful of it just out of the jar if it was decent! Did you know IKEA not only does the very cutest homeware but also the best food? No? Well, give it a try!
Last month I was introduced to Greeting Card Universe, an online shop selling a huge amount of greeting cards you wouldn’t even imagine such a big amount existed. I was fascinated by their idea of going back to pen and paper in this digital era, and still enjoy the art of writing greeting cards in so many occasions. Plus there are cards for any tastes really! I’ve loved having them by my desk and the idea of have a bunch of them always ready for any occasions. And they’re all super adorable.
This month I decided to finally give the Copic Ciao Markers a go: I’m not only using them to make my notepads cuter, but also to remember myself to sketch a more. As you might know I’m a designer and illustrator and obviously illustrate quite a lot for work, but I often forget about drawing and painting just for myself. I’m really enjoying it as an activity to treat myself a little bit recently, plus these markers are just the very best to fake watercolour effects and just make sketches more interesting!
On the beauty front, how can’t I avoid to talk about this L’Occitane hand cream? I know, I’m mentioning it in every post recently, but it has made me enjoy putting on a hand cream every evening which has never happened in my whole life, so it must be a good one, right? I love that it’s not too thick or greasy yet it hydrates at the very right point. Plus it smells amazing and it makes the only act of applying it in the evening feel such a lovely treat!
Lastly but not at least, my You’re A Peach Phone Case is my top favourite of the month: yes, I’ve designed it myself and my phone is very proudly wearing it since the beginning of the month! Casetify’s phone cases quality is always top-notch and I’m just so happy about how the design turned out! If you want to check out my other designs you can find them over here as usual (and keep your eyes peeled because a very yummy collection is on its way!).
And that’s about it, my February favourites all rounded up!
Would really love to know what’s on your favourites list this month! x
