February Favourites: Makeup and Music

feb20161

Quite a few of my favourites this month are things I’ve used before but have started to use more again because of the change in my skin. I was taken off my medication and changed to a topical solution so it’s taking a while to settle down, if it does, and there’s a few products that give more coverage then I’ve used in the past. I am on the lookout for a good moisturiser with SPF my skin gets on with so of anyone has any suggestions, preferably SPF 20 or higher I’m going to be trying some in the near future.

I’ll put the few TV shows I’ve been loving as well, I seem to do this every month. I have seen the new X Files and I know its not far in but I do really like it, will be interesting to see where it goes. I watched quite a few if the old ones over the past ten years when they were on in the middle if the day and I didn’t have anything to do and I really liked then, I’m going to watch some of them again from the beginning I think. NCIS is always a favourite for me and I watch it with my parents, this season is still good though there have been some weaker episodes. It’s always a bit odd watching these so much later than in the USA, the Halloween episode was only a couple of weeks ago. We started watching this late as we recorded it on Sky+ which is why it’s in February rather than earlier. Also loved Vera and Midsomer Murders, a couple of good UK detective shows though Midsomer Murders must be running out of people to kill in those small villages!

I’ve finished my degree! Woo! This past week has been a bit of a blur of working so I didn’t really post as much as I’d want to because my brain couldn’t take any more time looking at the screen after working on the project. This post was originally going to be done on Friday, so tomorrow it’s going to be the post that was meant for today, hopefully anyway.

Most of this order arrived a while ago, I posted about the one album in my August favourites post and I’d had it about a week then so that shows you when they arrived. I made the order from KPopTown.com at the beginning of August, the first part with the two albums and the two beauty bits arrived three weeks later which seems like a reasonable time to me from South Korea to the UK. They sent me an email about the earrings not being in stock and then when they were dispatched and there was no extra postage, they took another three weeks to arrive and everything was very well packaged so as far as how good they are as a store I would definitely recommend them.

August Favourites: Some More of Everything

This month there’s quite a few things on my list and, again, it’s a very mixed bag of favourites. I tend to stick with a lot of the same makeup so I don’t really get new favourites there, I’m trying to go through my palettes and work out which to get rid of as I have more than I need, though having watched decluttering videos on YouTube from makeup channels on there I don’t feel so bad, I probably have less to start with than they do after it. I guess that should be another favourite this month, I’ve ended up watching a lot of decluttering videos, also quite a few makeup storage ones for ideas as my drawer isn’t the most organised aside from the palette collection so I need some inspiration there.
