As I write this I can help but feel that February has just flown by, even with the extra day! As we moved forward into Spring here are a few of the things I have been loving this month that I would like to share with you...

MAC RETRO MATTE LIPSTICK £21.00 Mac Cosmetics - I received this as a valentines day gift
and I love it. I have been after the shade 'Lady be Good' for soooo long but no matter when I look it is out of stock (please fix this Mac!!) Instead my boyfriend picked this gorgeous traditional red called 'Feels So Grand'. The colour is amazing and I really feel like it would suit all skin tones, especially for me as I feel the brighter colours don't usually work well for me. The packaging has a very high end feel and allows you to see how much of the product you have left. You have to be very precise when applying however the applicator makes this very easy and the product last all day, I was so impressed. The only thing I might add is that I definitely recommend wearing a lip balm or moisturiser underneath. I will be getting more of these in different shades for sure.

OVER THE KNEE BOOTS £35.00 Public Desire - I am so late to this trend arghhh! I noticed other people wearing them and thought they looked so good but I am only 5ft 2 with short legs and I just thought that they would not look right on me.  I bit the bullet and ordered the Mylie pair from Public Desire and OMG they have changed my life. (I actually thought 'Wait. Kourtney Kardashian is shorter than me and they work?') I will never look back. Firstly, they are so comfortable and warm, two very important things for me and shoes. Secondly, they just work with any outfit. They add a certain sass to a day time outfit or can cool down an evening look if you don't want to be too over the top. They look great with jeans, dresses, skirts, everything and make your legs appear so long. I cannot rate these enough. I bought myself the black pair however my sister has grey and they also look amazing.

UNIDAYS - FREE - iOS, ANDROID OR WINDOWS - For any students out there who don't already have this app download it now. The offers this month have been great! I got 50% off from BirchBox and Missguided and Jack Wills have been offering 25% discount throughout the month. These change all the time and they are always adding new places to get discounts from as well as the usual 10% from places like Asos, Topshop and Boots.

YoYo Wallet - FREE - iOS OR ANDROID - This one perhaps is a little more exclusive than my other favourites this month. The university that I attend has collaborated with a company called Yoyo who allow you to buy food on campus without needing your bank card or having a minimum spend. Whilst spending you also collect loyalty points or stamps which then add up and you can redeem. It works by you linking your desired bank card and it presents as a QR code which the cashier then scans. It works really quickly and is so painless. The company is still relatively small I believe but if more places work with them this will be really big. The biggest bonus for this is it works will all bank cards which is great as my bank does not support Apple Pay! You also get a free hot drink when you sign up!

My final favourite this month are those of you who are reading this (cheesy!). Thank you for the 600+ views in the last 3 weeks alone and for the comments you have been leaving. I appreciate them so much and will always reply so please don't hesitate to leave one :)
