Monthly Summary, February

Another month down. My life is flying away before my eyes. Scary stuff.

February (Listeni/ˈfɛbjuːˌɛri/ or /ˈfɛbrˌɛri/) 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.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion. I bought this ages ago, it has lasted quite a while. When I first started using this along with the day cream my spots faded loads. Unfortunately they are now back with revenge! I don't think that has any bearing on this product though, nothing is touching my skin at the moment. I actually purchased two of these by mistake first time round so will continue using it and would re-purchase as I know that when my skin doesn't hate me as much as it currently does this is a great product.

Korres Quince Body Butter. I received this in my October Boudoir Prive box. I enjoyed using this. It smelt gorgeous and left the skin feeling soft. Would I re-purchase? If I saw it in a shop when I happened to be looking for body butter then yes, I wouldn't go to the effort of ordering it on-line though. It is just a body butter after all.

Skin Care Revolution Sample. I ordered this through facebook and had no idea what it was when I used it. It has now been revealed that it is Clearasil. The product could be used either as a face wash or as a face mask. As I only received a small sachet I decided to use it as a mask.I had two uses out of this and my skin did feel lovely afterwards. It didn't create any miracles though. Would I re-purchase? Probably not, it was nice but not special. Although I may be intrigued and decide to try it as a face wash.

I started reading the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo back in the summer and gave up on it. My partner then read the whole trilogy and raved about them so I gave it another go. Once I got through the first couple of chapters I did find I really got into it. The more I read the more of a page turner it became, I'm now reading the next in the trilogy and loving it. Difficult start but I highly recommend sticking with it.

Looking forward...
1.3.12 St David's Day. I haven't done anything to celebrate this today except scoffing a ridiculous amount of Welsh Cakes in work :)
3.3.12 I'm going to my bosses daughter's Wedding which I'm very much looking forward to, who doesn't love a good wedding?
4.3.12 Spencer and I are going to the Something Kinda Vintage Wedding Fayre in Swansea, super excited for this.
10.3.12 I'm having a baby shower at my house for my sister who is due to give birth on April 3rd. I'm loving viewing inspiration for my blue themed party on the internet and can't wait to get planning!
11.3.12 Cupcake decorating class that I bought through Groupon. I'm hoping that this will be good and not another Groupon fail.
17.3.12 Wales will hopefully win the Grandslam and I will witness it! Spencer and I have tickets to watch Wales v France play in the Millennium Stadium, I have high expectations.
24.3.12 Another Groupon! This one is a photography course, just teaching the basics of using your camera and stuff, again, very much look forward to this and hope it isn't a Groupon fail.

Geez, I'm hardly stopping! So much to look forward to! I'm looking forward to having a weekend in soon, I feel like I haven't stopped for ages, and looking at this I won't be stopping for a while yet.
