February Favourites

Hello beauties!

We're having a look at all of my favourites for Feb today, from movies to skincare to music; everything is covered. So let's get right into it! As always, you can find all of the images on my Pinterest boards, and none of the images belong to me, except if stated otherwise.

First up, the song of the month. I figure if I put this up first, you have something to listen to while you check out the rest of the post. :) It's another older song, but it's such a cool tune and absolutely I love the artist!! Yup, it's ginger-man himself, Ed Sheeran, with I see fire (from The Hobbit). And no, I still haven't seen the movie, I just love the song. :P



My makeup looks of the month are these two. I love the colours in the first one, it's absolutely mind blowing. I really want to try a look like this sometime!! The second image (the purple haired one) is a look I did somewhere during the month on my cousin, Anschke. We took some pictures for the cover of my Roxanne novel (watch this space). I'll upload some photos of the shoot next week.



My person of the month is Sherly Temple, who sadly passed away this month. But her talent remains forever on film!!


I love this newborn photo! The last time (well, four months to be exact ;P) I've been very interested in baby photography and I enjoy taking pictures a whole lot. Which is why I've been taking a whole lot of photos. Haha. Anyway, Pinterest is a whirlpool of photography ideas, and this is one of the best ones I've seen.


Speaking of my photo-taking skills, this is my favourite photo of the month. I took this one of Kayla one day while I was playing around. I just love her almost shy expression!!


I have two favourite movies this month. I couldn't pick between the two, because they were both plenty awesome. The first one is the new Disney, Frozen. And then I finally saw Epic, which the name describes pretty well. :)



I finally got to see season three of Sherlock, which is my favourite series for Feb. And it makes me want to hang Steven Moffat by his friggen toenails. And dunk him in water. Or something. My reaction was like 'aint nobody got time for dat' when I heard he wants to leave season four until 2016! It's slow torture, is what it is. Slow. Torture.


My art picks for the month. This first one is called 'Two sides of a battle' by LucasParolin. I think the perspective is brilliant and it reminds us that for basically every victory in life, someone else had to lose. It's a pretty grabbing piece.


I have no idea who painted this one, or what the title is, but it's pretty darn cool. I wonder where she's off to. And if she's wondering where her mummy is. (Oh fandom, how you have corrupted me...)


This is called 'Damsels' by Ryuloulou. I mean, who couldn't love this? It's a mermaid in the moonlight for crying out loud! It's beautiful!! And that fin in the water is brilliant.


Places I'd love to go now include these two. The first is Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma, Hohenwerfen castle in Austria.



This is my product of the month, Annique's resque creme. You can put this baby on anything. ANYTHING, I tell ya. From sunburn to insect bites, to baby bum rash to cuts and bruises. Anything.

Animal cruelty free, reasonably priced and locally proudly South African. It's a product worth trying.

If you're in the Westrand, you can buy one of these from my aunt at Roibossieka!

(BTW, this is my hand in the picture, wearing Disorder by LA Girl. Read the review here.)







I'm just slightly obsessed with tutu's at the moment. (OK, maybe not so slightly) I want to get my hands on tutu's for Kayla in every shade under the sun. Because every little girl needs a tutu. Ot ten. Oh, the tea parties we'll have!! These are two of my favourites.



My purchase of the month (via my wonderful hubby) was the pre-order of The Sims 4. Ooh, I can't wait. I think the only game I'm more excited for than this one is Dragon Age 3. My geekiness apparently has no end. :D




And that's a wrap on my favourites for February!

Have a fabulous weekend, folks! See you back here on Monday. :)

Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,

Yolandie
