Life| February Roundup

February was a bit 'nothingy' for me. Although I was feeling a lot more positive and had a better outlook on life, I was still in a bit of a funk and didn't really do much besides work. I'm ecstatic to finally have brighter and warmer days this month and hopefully it'll improve my mood even more.
Anyways, here are some of things I did and loved last month.

1. If you follow me on twitter, I'm sure you already know I'm a little bit obsessed with wine. I discovered a fantastic yet affordable brand of wine last month called First Cape. Although I'm usually a pinot grigio type of gal, I was drawn to their Californian White Zinfandel and consumed copious amounts of it throughout the month. Good times!
2. Naughty Naila. Need I say more? This little diva has really blossomed in the personality department. She is funny, sassy, extremely jovial and very determined. She refuses to walk - although she can - and enjoys nothing more than antagonising her big brother.
3. Despite taking pictures of myself for my blog, I actually hate pictures of me (crazy, I know!) However, I really like this picture that I took for this ootd post. I quite like the way my thighs look too!
4. Half term was last month and half term in my world means braids out, fro out. My hair is really thriving underneath the braids and has grown loads. I used my favourite deep conditioner by Vatika right before rebraiding to give it a much needed protein treatment. 
5. I bought two of these in Feb. My lips love them.
6. Absolute Chambulls. This cocktail was had with the girls right before we went to see Mr Grey. The drink was brilliant; It's a shame I can't say the same thing about the film!
7. A little bit of positivity I decided to share. I had had enough of moaning and feeling melancholic so I decided to stop. 
8. It was my brother's 30th on the 20th. I will never admit this to him, but he really is one of my biggest inspirations in life and I am so blessed to have him as my big brother despite his annoyances! We celebrated at Buddha Bar in Knightsbridge with his friends and of course I drank wine. 
9. Payday goodies. Not that I need any more make-up, but I was in my local discount beauty store and just had to add a few more NYX goodies to my collection. The W7 nail varnishes weren't too shabby either. 
In March I am looking forward to:
  • Days out with the kiddies and the Man now that the weather has improved
  • One of my bestie's birthdays
  • Mother's Day
  • Getting back into the gym and fitness (I know, I keep saying this)
  • Joy, laughter and love



  1. Such a wonderful family :) aww x

  2. Wine, cocktails and pay day goodies! Sounds great. Hope you still feel upbeat and the summer arrives soon x
