February was a seriously amazing month for me. My birthday, our engagement party, getting to see our families, wonderful! It was also a great month for some new goodies so I wanted to share some of them.
Animal friendly, vegan cosmetics are hard to find, but Lily Lolo fit the bill (95% of their products are vegan, with a list of what is not on their website)! I've never been one to really wear foundation or powder, because I hate the feel of products on my skin, but this feels so light I forget I'm wearing it almost instantly. It provides excellent coverage with very minimal product too, so this is going to last for a long time. It comes in a huge range of different shades to suit different skin tones, from the palest of pale through to tones designed for black skin and olive tones, which is great to see. I've got their BB cream on order too and can't wait to try out more of their range.
Here I am wearing the powder on just the side of my face with my nose right, I can really see a huge difference. No filters or other makeup here, just natural light.
And here is the after, same natural light, but now a full face of powder and eye makeup, nothing else. Again, no filter.
Stu got me these for my birthday but they didn't arrive in time for it. They have 3D Spock ears!! How amazing is that?!
I donated to Sugar & Vice's Indiegogo campaign twice, and both of those perks included a voucher worth 125% of the money I donated. In February I got those vouchers and spent ages picking what I wanted to get! One thing I bought was this necklace I've been drooling over for a while. Red and black are always a good combination! I also bought a necklace as a present for someone that I will share soon.
Part of the Witching Hour collection, this necklace and I were always meant to be. It makes me feel like a goth Flintstone. I love the length of it, anything spooky and cute is a winner for me.
Sugar & Vice Coral Necklace £14 (custom teal mirror colour is priced differently to the standard)
I loved the shapes in the standard coral necklace so so much, but because of my skin tone I thought the colour might get a little lost, so I asked Sarah & Matt to make me it in teal mirror instead and it is gorgeous! I wanted to stick with a sea sort of colour, and this teal was perfect for that.
Philip Normal sunglasses £6 on depop
I found Philip Normal on depop and was so glad I did. They have a huge range of graphic 80's and 90's inspired prints, and vintage sunglasses. I love several of their pairs of sunglasses, but decided to pick out the one pair for now, these adorable round black and red rimmed shades. They are unisex, so if you have a large head like I do, they are really comfy! A lot of their shop is reduced on depop so have hunt on there before you buy from their store. Free shipping!
I featured these 2 necklaces in earlier blogposts, but I just have to mention them again. If you haven't seen The Serpent's Club range, you really should!
New Look Tube Skirt £9.99
I love this skirt! It's super cute, comfy, and according to my Nanna looks really nice on me. And I trust my Nanna on that one!
Other February favourites - our engagement party, my birthday, and seeing all my wonderful friends and family who travelled to see us.
