February was a good month; I can't complain. We spent almost half of it up in Scotland, visiting my family, which was really lovely. The time always flies by too quickly, though, doesn't it? My three beautiful nieces are growing up so fast! It was lovely to see a bit of snow at Fyvie Castle and go for lots of walks in the local area. Soon after returning from our trip, I began Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred fitness regime! Wow, it's tough! The very first workout was hell; I had to stop about half way through as I felt really light-headed. The second day was exceptionally easier than the first! Then came the aching legs and just about everything else... ouch! Still, I am persevering and hoping it will get me toned and motivate me into a regular fitness schedule. I'm currently on day 4 of level 2. After the shred, I plan to try yoga, while increasing my walking and spinning. What's your favourite form of exercise?
We didn't really celebrate Valentine's Day in any big way, as I was working anyway. But we did go out for a meal at The Wagtail in Wincanton, Somerset, to celebrate Dean's recent birthday!
And I really must give myself a pat on the back for completing two very boring tasks this month; defrosting the freezer and washing the car - both of which were long overdue!

And on to this month's favourites!

We discovered and binge-watched Fargo, the TV series. We were already fans of the film, and this TV series was great! A dark comedy with a great cast! Gotta love that accent, don't cha think?!
I purchased Lily Lolo's Mineral Finishing Powder in flawless matte and also bought the Powder Brush to go with it, as I was looking to replace my kabuki brush anyway. I love this powder! It's much longer-lasting than TheBalm's Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Transulcent Powder and gives a lovely, smooth and matte finish. The powder brush is super soft and a pleasure to use.
These new Lindt chocolate bars have been our main treats this month! There's still a couple to try... I thought the strawberry cheesecake one was quite sickly, but I absolutely loved the caramel brownie one!

  4. These photographs are astonishingly beautiful! My boyfriend would love to move to Scotland, but I don't think we will be able to for a couple of years. Love Lily Lolo too - although I have switched my devotion to Honeypie Minerals. ;) xx

    1. Aww, thank you so much! I love photography, but I don't make enough time to embrace it more often. Scotland has some beautiful scenery and great places to visit. I do miss it sometimes! xxx
