February was a pretty good month for me, I bought tickets to Vancouver, bagged myself a new job and finished a tonne of books. A pretty damn great month if you ask me. So it was quite hard to pick just a few things that I liked the most, but alas I have managed it and as per, there really is a huge array of things.
I’m Going to Vancouver
I feel like this is pretty obvious! Me and a few of the girls who are going to SPNUK in May decided that it would be really fun to all go to the Convention in Vancouver, and suddenly it was an actual thing that was happening. Flights book, room reserved, all I have to do is wait for the convention tickets to go on sale. But how exciting?! I’ll be going for a week so that I can enjoy Vancouver and go sightseeing around the convention. (And no doubt try to see some of the filming sites for the show, because when in Vancouver, am I right?!)
A Court of Thorns and Roses
I finally got around to picking this book up as I’ve had quite a bit of spare time while I’ve been travelling to work the past few weeks, so it took me almost no time to breeze through this book. I absolutely loved which is saying something because these sort fo YA fantasy books aren’t typically my thing. BUt it is written so well and so beautifully. I loved it so much that as soon as I finished it, I ended up ordering the other two books in the series, and pre-ordering the companion novel. This is without a doubt going to be one of my favourite books of this year, if there’s something you must read this year, I would gladly shove a copy of this into your hands. I’m planning on doing a more in-depth review of this at some point so you’ll be able to read all my complete and honest thoughts then.
There have been some great new shows that I’ve been watching, and this is one of them. I’m not sure what I find so appealing about it, I think it’s a mixture of how light it is and how the characters are written. Now don’t get me wrong, if I miss a few episodes I don’t think I’m gonna be that mad about it, and I’d be fairly surprised if it gets picked up for another season, but for right now, it’s a fab choice. If you like medical sort of drama’s and things like that, you will probably like this.
Ocado Gluten-Free Milk Chocolate Chunk Biscuits
Okay, so I have been raving about these biscuits to pretty much anyone who will listen. If you know me, you’ll know that I am a huge tea and biscuits kinda gal. And I’ve been really impressed with most of the gluten-free ones that I’ve tried (and trust me, I’ve tried a fair few), but these are by far the best I’ve ever tried. I think these are the most like a normal biscuit that I’ve found and they are just so delicious. They don’t crumble (that much), they’re a really decent size, (looking at you Tesco, your choc chip cookies are tiny!) and they tend not to fall apart when you dunk them in your tea, which is great news for me. I’ve made my family try them and they agree that they were great biscuits, I’m buzzing to try the rest of them.
The Play That Goes Wrong
I went and saw this show a few weekends ago and I can honestly say that I laughed throughout all of it. It is hilarious and the whole audience was in fits of laughter the whole way through. It’s really hard to explain what makes it so funny without either telling you exactly what happens or explaining it in a way that doesn’t truly show how funny it was, so I just recommend that you go see it. Tickets can go pretty cheap, I don’t think I even paid £25 for mine and the seats were pretty decent!
Olympus Pen E-PL8, Strap and Case.
So I got a new camera at the beginning of January but it hasn’t been until recently that I have had the time to really sit around and play with it and take some pictures. I’m still figuring it out because it’s definitely a bit more intense than my old camera, but I’m loving figuring out all the tricks and things, if anyone has any posts about their own Olympus Pen E-PL8 I’d love to give them a read so make sure to leave a link in the comments. I’m planning on doing my own ‘getting to grips’ post in a couple of months when I’ve had more time to play with it.
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Bond Girl.
I’ve got a whole post going up about this but I couldn’t not mention it here. This is by far one of my favourite beauty purchases of the year so far. I saw another blogger rave about it and thought that it looked really pretty so thought I’d take the gamble, as I don’t really tend to wear lighter shades as I don’t think they suit my pale skin. But when this came I was super surprised by how stunning the colour was, I have worn this throughout the month and have had so many compliments about it. I’ll be doing a more in-depth review about it in a few weeks so make sure you look out for that.
There is definitely more things that I have loved this month, but I didn’t think you’d appreciate me rambling on and on. Let me know what your favourites of the last month have been in the comments below, or link your own posts if you have them, I’d love to give them a read!
