February Favourites - Cath Kidston, Ted Baker & Blondies!

I had so many things I wanted to include in this post and I actually think this is one of my favourite ever favourites. I've got something I bought in London which I will love forever, a birthday present, one of my favourite films, the best lush product and two other things which I really wanted to talk about!
Cath Kidston Mug - I bought this mug from the Cath Kidston in St Pancras Station before we went for our train home and I am so in love with it. They had a really lovely range of London themed things and to be honest I wanted it all but I thought this mug would be something I could keep forever. It makes me smile whenever I look at it because it has all my favourite places on it and it reminds me of the best weekend away.
Ted Baker Set - I received this Ted Baker set as a birthday present and I just love it. First of all, how pretty is the packaging? It came in the cutest box too. It smells gorgeous and I have been especially loving the mini body spray. I love little things like that. I genuinely look at sets like this in Boots all the time and never get them for myself so this was such a perfect present. I can't wait to use the mini bubble bath soon.
Snow Fairy - I'm sure I'll have mentioned in past favourites but I'm going to mention it again because this is the only bottle I managed to get in the boxing day sale and I'm almost out of it. Everyone loves Snow Fairy don't they. It just smells gorgeous. I love using this because I will be able to smell it on my skin for hours and it makes the bathroom smell amazing! I always get sad when I run out of this because now I have to wait until like November to get more.
Equals - I'm sure this has also been mentioned in a favourites before but it's a brilliant film and I bought it a few weeks ago for only £2.99 from HMV. It's a science fiction and romance sort of film and it's about two people who fall in love in a place where emotions have been eradicated and what they have to do so they can be together. This is one of those films that at the end makes you feel like you need to take a massive breath as it's so tense. I actually felt like I didn't breathe for the last half an hour or so, I had no idea how it was going to end and I love it when a film gives no indication of what's going to happen. I really recommend watching this if you haven't yet already, it's a brilliant film and so different.
The Girl On The Train - Everyone seemed to love this book but to be honest I didn't enjoy it and really struggled to get through it. That didn't stop me from wanting to see the film though and because I didn't enjoy the book that much, I didn't really have any expectations. Me and George watched it a few weeks ago and I actually really liked it. I couldn't remember that much of the book so I had no idea what the ending would be and I felt tense all the way through. Emily Blunt was brilliant in it. I think the only disappointing thing about it was that they chose to set the film in America even though in the book it was in London, I'm not sure why they needed to change as it didn't affect the plot.
White Chocolate Blondies - I first made these last year and they have become such a favourite of mine to bake. I made them for Georges macmillan coffee morning in September and they were the first thing to sell out! so they must be good. I hadn't made them since so when Georges brothers were round in February I decided to make some on the Friday and they were gone within an hour. We all loved them so much I made more before they went home and now I can't wait to make them again. They were just like little white chocolate cakes. I've got a recipe here if you would like to make them yourself!
That's it for my February favourites, I can't actually believe we're now in March and soon Summer will be on the way. I'm so not ready for it. Anyway, let me know if you like anything I've included and I'll be back tomorrow with a new post!
