February Favourites

Sunday, 5 March 2017

I honestly have no idea where February went, and that may well be because I was actually quite busy for a fair amount of the month - my Birthday was at the end of January and so in early February I was still busy shopping and spending my money from that, then for the rest of the month I spent a fair bit of time revising for my mock exams at Sixth Form, as well as having a week off and also going on my first driving lesson... 

So, with quite a bit packed into one month, I thought it was finally about time that I got round to writing out a monthly favourites post once again. It has literally been so long since I last sat down and wrote up a post of this kind, but now that February has come to an end, I have found it pretty easy to come up with several things that I have been loving over the past four weeks!


Flowers

I have mentioned on a few occasions now just how much I love flowers, and how I really love to keep the vase in my room stocked up with a bunch - this month really hasn't been any different for me in terms of my love of flowers, as throughout the month I have had lots of lovely bunches of tulips on show in my room, as well as some rather beautiful daffodils at one point too. Although I do like the winter months, I must say that now we are into March, I love the thought of all the gorgeous spring flowers appearing once again, and making everything look so pretty!

After my birthday, and with sufficient money to finally make the purchase, I decided that it was definitely the right time to go out and buy myself a new denim jacket. Before I made my new purchase, I did already have a denim jacket, but it was old and didn't really have the sort of style that I was after - therefore, when I spotted the lovely looking MOTO Denim Jacket in Topshop a few weeks ago, I just knew that I had to get it for myself!

This new jacket of mine is really nice and oversized, which is exactly what I was looking for, and because of this I have been constantly wearing this new wardrobe addition of mine ever since I bought it back in mid-February...which makes the price tag of £45 not seem so bad after all.


Vinyl - What's the Story (Morning Glory)? - Oasis

My vinyl collection has been growing considerably over the past couple of months, but for quite some time now one particular album title has been missing from my hoard - that record being What's the Story (Morning Glory)/ by Oasis. 

I have loved Oasis for years, after listening to all their CD's that my parents have since I was young. Therefore, I certainly regard What's the Story to be one of my favourite albums of all time, due to the fact that I just love each and every song on there so so much! After a few failed attempts to find this particular album in HMV though, I finally managed to buy it for myself just a couple of weeks ago, and of course have been absolutely making the most of owning it ever since, by playing it almost every day!


Afternoon Tea

I had never actually been to have afternoon tea before, so really didn't know what to expect when I was invited along to have some for my Mom's friend's birthday earlier in February. I must say though, that it was a rather fun experience - whilst a few of the cakes weren't really to my liking, I did enjoy trying out each one, as well as a few of the sandwiches that they offered too. I must say though, that my favourite piece of the whole afternoon tea selection had to be the scone, which I piled high with jam (not a big fan of clotted cream), and thoroughly enjoyed along with my cup of tea!

After going so long without posting my monthly favourites, it actually felt rather good to create a summary of my most-loved things from the past month once again! 

I hope you all enjoyed this post though, and I also hope you all have a fantastic March!!

    1. I completely agree, I hate it when my room doesn't have any flowers in now, it looks so plain without them!

    1. I definitely recommend the denim jacket - it's really comfy and oversized which is what I always tend to look for in a denim jacket!

  4. I always have flowers in my room as a present to me, from me! Even if they are a cheap bunch from the supermarket. I am the same with scone - pile the jam and leave the cream!

    1. Flowers are a great present to give yourself! And I'm glad you feel the same about the scone, normally everyone thinks it's strange that I don't have cream!

  7. This is a nice selection! I also love flowers, but I'm really lazy, so I would probably not water them or something! Also, I've never had afternoon tea - their selection of cakes look quite interesting.
