February (i// or //) is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is the shortest month and the only month with fewer than 30 days. The month has 28 days in common years and 29 days in leap years.
In the Southern Hemisphere, February is the seasonal equivalent of August in the Northern Hemisphere.
February starts on the same day of the week as March and November in common years, and on the same day of the week as August in leap years. February ends on the same day of the week as October every year and January in common years only. In leap years, it is the only month that ends on the same weekday it begins.
I can't believe that this was the only product I managed to use up in January! I'm slacking.
I've been wearing Bertie again lately. I go through phases with jewellery, I wear something all the time then don't wear it for ages. Bertie does reappear quite often, he is privileged! I bought him from Dainty Roses a while back.
I'm so in love with my AX Paris quilted jacket. I was lucky enough to win Sarah's giveaway which was an item of my choice from AX Paris. I'd been wanting a quilted jacket for ages so decided to get this one, it ticks all the boxes right down to the corduroy shoulder pads.
The most amazing foundation ever! I will definitely be purchasing the full size of this when little sample runs out. You can read my review of Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum cover foundation here.
I received this Neal & Wolf Super Shine Spray in my September GlossyBox. I initially tried it, put it away and never got it back out. I dug it back out in January and have been loving using it when wearing my, new very long, hair down.
The spoof photoshop ad that Evelyn shared on her blog.
Lisa's chocolate ripple tea bread recipe - drool.
I'm planning to start reading more often. I finished this book in January and I thoroughly enjoyed it, it has bought back my passion for reading. The book is all about a loving little boy, it can get quite confusing at times because the story goes back and fore between the years. Its definitely worth sticking with.
I had a night out in Cardiff at the beginning of the month to celebrate two of my friend's birthdays. I had finished taking my antibiotics by then but wasn't supposed to drink for seven days afterwards. This was the seventh day. I did drink but only a little. It was quite a revelation being sober in Cardiff, the best fun I had was in Burger King and on the bus on the way home, I have realised that I'm a pub girl not a club girl.
I had an impromptu night out with some of my friends from work, some of my other friends also came along. We had a fantastic night up until the part where my work friends' bag was stolen. I hate thieves. They have got the girl who stole it and she will be up in Court shortly. Scum.
At the end of the month I finally managed to scrape all my hair (including my almost grown out fringe) up into a top knot for the first time! Its growing really quickly.
I haven't really done a lot else, been out for some nice meals and eaten a lot of good food, which is exactly what I wanted to do in January.
The lovely Bex declared my blog her blog of the month! So chuffed, thank you so much!
Six Nations :) I love a good bit of rugby, I'm so patriotic and get really carried away with it. I haven't been looking forward to it as much as usual but am slowly getting excited for our first match tomorrow.
11.2.12 TOWIB. I finally decided to go. I was umming and ahhing between LDN Lunch and TOWIB for quite a while, settled on LDN Lunch then realised that I had double booked, I'm going to a wedding that day. I have now bought my ticket and booked my bus for TOWIB. Super excited for that. One week today!
14.2.12 Valentine's day. No doubt I won't have anything because Spencer aparently doesn't believe in Valentine's day. I personally think it is because he is a tight git. I have signed up to the Valentine's swap though so am super excited for that!
17.2.12 Mine and Spencer's five year anniversary, I will make sure we celebrate that no matter how much he moans.
22.2.12 Spencer's birthday. I really hope that he likes his gifts and what I have planned for us.
25.2.12 I am going to Cardiff for a friends birthday. Wales are playing England in the Six Nations, the match isn't in Cardiff but the atmosphere should still be pretty good. We're getting a limo there and back as it actually works out cheaper than taxis! I haven't been in a limo for years!
Have you got any exciting plans for February? What were your highlights of January?
