Firstly I feel that I need to apologize for the lateness of this roundup, February was a bit of a rubbish month in the ways of mental health and actual health but after kicking myself and my anxiety in the butt I wont let it bother me much anymore (famous last words of course) so here I welcome you to last months Glossybox.

Ciate London Gelology Nail Polish – I love a good polish and if anyone hasn’t been on instagram for the past few years this one is a popular one, I have been looking at it in stores for a while but going for a more cheaper brand because money is tight but having a chance to get to play with a Ciate polish has changed my mind and I am going to get more of it! The larger bottles go for £9 and this smaller bottle goes for £6 so its a little pricey but I feel like this one is worth the price. the shades in each box differ and I got this delightful browny grey shade called Pillow Talk which I have linked above.

Steve Laurant Nude Pop Lip Tint – Lipsticks aren’t my thing, I can never find a shade that I like and I cannot seem to find anything that wont dry my lips up, but this lip tint goes on a bit like a lip balm, the shade is a lot softer than what it looks like in the pot and I actually really like it, it gives a lovely subtle colour to you lips, I feel like I have found a lip product that I actually like.

Studio 10 Beauty Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion – I see a lot of this all over instagram, its a spray that you can put on before and after makeup to keep everything in place, I have tried a Make Up Revolution version of one and I didnt really like it, but I actually like this one, it does the job perfectly and with the weather lately I have needed my makeup to stay put!

Sleek Makeup Devine Eyeshadow Palette – How beautiful are those shades, I love a makeup palette (more so when its friendly on the piggy bank) and this one by Sleek MakeUp is £8.99 which is fantastic for makeup lovers with a budget, they come in different colours, I received the Vintage Romance palette and I am so glad I got this one as the darker the colour the better.

Skin Chemists London Face Serum –  I have used this so much over the past few weeks since I got this months box, with the cold weather my skin has taken such a battering and this face serum has really helped my skin feel a lot better and a lot brighter.

Did anyone else feel like January was a rather long month? It was long but I also feel like I didn’t actually get much done in it, I had planned to read a book which never happened, I wanted to get my camera out more often but that never happened either.. I guess perhaps the January blues hit me like a sack of uninspiring bricks and left me feeling extremely exhausted.

But anyway, another month gone and a new one is dawning, its time to share with you what I hope to achieve in the month of February.

  • Save Money –  I have a feeling this will endlessly be on my goals, Mr S and I have decided to plan a birthday party for Kai when his birthday comes around in March and its going to be rather expensive so time to set some cash aside ready for that.
  • Get a new piercing – Not sure if I have already mentioned this but I want to get a new piercing done in my ear, the plan was do it in January but I just never found the time to go sort it out.
  • Be More Organised – I am a mess most of the time, very forgetful and utterly useless with everything.. I need to write down everything that needs doing and create a check list.. which my Bullet Journal will come in handy with.
  • More family trips – Pretty simple, we now have a car so we need to get out more.
  • Buy lighting equipment for photos – I live in England and the weather at the minute is just rain, dark and cold.. so I haven’t had the chance to take many blog photos because the lighting has been so bad.
  • Put my phone down – I will hold my hands up and say, I use my phone far to much and I want to change that a little, I will still use it but not like I used to
  • Sort out a play room – Tiny flat means no space for anyone, all the children’s stuff is in their room, clothes and toys and I want to move things about and turn our large cupboard which houses a fridge and various other things into a play room for the children’s toys to go, so their bedroom will have some much needed space and hopefully move Robin into their room.

A part of me wants to complete all of these for the next month, but I know some of them will cross over into March and probably beyond as I am a professional procrastinator haha.

What plans have you got set for the month ahead?

Until next time
