February Favourites - Winnie The Pooh, Cosy Weekends & Pamper Nights

I am so glad with how fast February went after January dragging for what felt like ages! It was a pretty chilled month for me but I had some really nice weekends which I wanted to talk about, a few trips to the cinema and I found a new love for some beauty products!

L'oreal Multimasking Face Masks - I absolutely love taking a bit of time out each week for some self care and I make sure I have a real pamper night which includes a face mask. The one I've been using most recently is this multimasking kit from L'oreal. I picked this up when I was last in London and I ended up getting about 4 or 5 uses out of it which is brilliant as most face masks you use once and then it goes in the bin. What I loved about this was that each mini mask targeted a different area meaning you could just use what you felt you needed, and it had a few different pictures on the back to guide you. I followed the stress relief guide most of the time as I'm always stressed and it made my skin feel amazing afterwards. It always left my skin feeling refreshed and smooth and a little bit really went a long way. I picked this up when it was on offer for around £3.50 but it's currently £7.49 in Boots.
Jelly Beans* - If you're looking for fun little games to play with either your partner or family, then Jelly Belly have got you covered! Jelly Belly are daring people to try their luck with look-alike pairs of jelly bean flavours. Each colour in the Bean Boozled boxes is either a nice flavour or a wild one, is it peach or sick? Tutti-Frutti or socks? and lots more. They've now brought out a Minions version too which has two new flavours! I'd tried the original Bean Boozled Jelly Beans in the past with family and it's one of those things that always ends up being so much fun to play, regardless of which flavour you get! You literally have no idea what you're going to get with these and there is no way of guessing, so it really is a great little game to play. What's great about it aswell is that it's such a bargain! This box is just £2.40, and there aren't many games which you can find for that price. If you want to pick any of these up yourself, you can find them on the Jelly Belly website along with many other varieties!
Clintons Winnie The Pooh Range - As soon as I saw that Clinton were bringing out a Winnie The Pooh range, I knew I had to get my hands on it. As soon as it was available I ordered a few bits and I can't get over how cute they are! I chose the Ceramic Dish which has already been a little prop in some photos, and it's going to look so nice on a white desk. I also got the Hot Water Bottle as I've needed a new one for ages and I just love getting cosy, this is incredibly soft too. There is so much more available in the range too so I'm hoping I can pick up more at some point.

OPI 'First Class Desires' - Even though I'm starting to get into Spring and all of the pretty pastel colours like I always do, I'm not quite ready to let go of Winter just yet and that means I'm still so drawn to the darker colours when it comes to my nails. I just love wearing darker shades like reds, blacks and plums. I finally got round to using one of my new OPI shades that I picked up from Chemist4U (haul here) and it looked stunning on! It's the shade First Class Desires which I would say is a glitter dark plum shade. It applied so well, wasn't streaky or messy in anyway and dried really quickly which is always a bonus.

Cosy Film Weekends - A few weeks ago George and I had a proper cosy film weekend and it was so, so nice. I have to be in a really good mood usually to want to watch a film, I'm just so fussy but a few weeks ago I found a load of new films which I had to see so we got all cosy in the living room with snacks and got through a few of them. The first one we watched was Home Again which is quite a new one with Reece Witherspoon. I didn't really have high hopes for this, I just thought it would be a cheesy film which I suppose it is, but I enjoyed it so much! I actually thought it was a 5 star one which doesn't happen often. It's definitely one I want to get on DVD as it was such an easy watch and really funny. We also watched The Mountain Between Us which was pretty incredible. It stars Idris Elba and Kate Winslet and the private plane they are on crashes and they are surrounded just by mountains and have to try and survive and get to safety. It was very tense throughout and you really didn't know how it was going to go, but I'm really pleased with the ending. I highly recommend it. We also watched Battle of the Sexes with Steve Carrell and Emma Stone which was okay but not one I'd rush to watch again.

Fifty Shades Freed - Sticking with films, I couldn't not mention the latest, and final Fifty Shades film. We went to see the first one on Valentines Day in 2015 and then we had the long wait for Fifty Shades Darker and then it finally concluded this year with Freed, so of course we had to make a date of it and go on Valentines, it's like a tradition for us now. I have no idea what we'll do next year now, I've looked forward to these films every year! I think the third film is probably my favourite, like the others it exceeded my expectations and it was nice to see so much love, romance and drama, and it felt like so much happened in only an hour and a half. It made me laugh, smile and even get a little bit teary at the end, the post credits scene is too cute. I just love the films, the soundtracks and the books and I will be getting this on DVD as soon as possible.
