Ahhh, it’s finally February. We’re getting closer and closer to Spring aren’t we? Ok, only slightly closer but still, I’m trying to be positive here. I’ve done some nice bits in January and celebrated a couple of birthday’s, but I’m really longing for Spring and brighter days and hence brighter moods.
There have been a few things that I’ve really been loving recently, so I thought I would talk a bit about them – there’s quite a variety of stuff as you can see.
5 Things I’m Loving Right Now
Tart Cherry Juice
Someone recommended this to my friend Zara on her Instagram to help with trouble sleeping, and as I’m sleeping really badly again at the moment I thought I would give it a try, plus it has loads of health benefits. I haven’t noticed it helping with my sleep yet, but I absolutely love it – I adore the sharp tarty-ness and I’ve been drinking it in a wine glass in the evening sometimes instead of wine! I could just drink it all night! It is expensive though so I have to limit myself (plus I’m sure you shouldn’t drink loads at a time anyway). You can get it from Amazon here (it’s gone up loads since I bought it, the bugger).
Bobbi Brown All Over Bronzing Gel £23.50
A few months ago a lovely lady at Bobbi Brown in Nottingham did my makeup – she used ‘Joe Brown‘; a very dark brown liquid bronzer that looks quite scary as you squeeze it out. I’d never used a liquid bronzer before and was happy with my current powder one, but I really love this. Being a liquid means that it looks a lot more natural on the skin and you don’t get that powdery look. It looks intense, but it blends out beautifully and makes me look a lot more healthy and glowy. I’m sure it will be especially great in the summer.
My iPhone 7 Plus
When the plus first came out I thought they seemed massive and I wasn’t interested at all, but then I ended up really liking the idea of having a larger phone and so when it was time to get a new iPhone recently I chose the iPhone 7 Plus and I really love it. I love the bigger size (the normal size feels teeny in my hand now!), and despite being worried I would struggle to use it with my small hands, it is absolutely fine. It also fits in my jeans pocket which I didn’t think it would. I also have a much (much!) bigger memory which makes a huge difference. It doesn’t feel big at all to me now (ha!), and I’m very happy with it.
I’ve talked about my love for raw coconut oil before, but I just use it for everything and it’s so good. I use it for cooking with, for moisturising my body with, as a face cleanser sometimes, on A’s eczema (and mine!), on sore bottoms (not mine), add it to smoothies, on dry winter lips, on the ends of my hair overnight. I’ve even used it on my cat before when she was suffering with really bad dry patches. I always use Lucy Bee’s Coconut Oil.
Amazon Echo Dot
I’ve got a post about this coming soon, but I’m really loving having this around, especially when I’m working and I can just ask my friend Alexa to play a song for me. I’m listening to so much more music as well as a much wider variety as I’m not just limited to what’s on my phone, and I can just ask her to play a particular artist.
