Likes & Loves | February 2020

February has been a good month. We heard that Blake has got into the local specialist school and he has now started there.  We've also spent some time over in Milton Keynes during half term, visiting my family. It was lovely meeting my nephew Harry and being able to spend time with my mum and sister.

Jumping into my likes and loves for February.

Imperial Leather Shower Gel
I picked up the Narwhal always love you shower gel which is part of the Icons range. I've tried a few different ones from their range last year. This one I spotted for the first time in poundland. Scent wise it's a pleasant sweet scent that isn't over powering. Have you tried out any of the icons range?

Netflix this month has had some amazing shows released and I've been binge watching quite a few. 

The Stranger 
The Stranger is based on the book also of that name which is written by crime/thriller author Harlan Coben. I've not actually read any of his books myself which needs to definitely change. This was such a gripping watch and I've heard quite a few people mentioning it, so you may have heard of it or even maybe already watched it yourself. If you haven't definitely get on Netflix and do so.

October Faction 
My sister reccomend this one to me and I loved it. I pretty much binge watched it in the space of a day. It's a supernatural drama based on the comic books by that name. 

Locke and key
I saw the trailer for this and knew I had to watch and started binge watching the series on the day it came out. All 10 episodes are amazing and I so want another series! It's again a supernatural drama based on comic books. 

To all the boys i've loved before: ps i still love you.
If you love cheesy chick flicks and especially loved the first film then definitely watch this one. It's based on the books by Jenny Han.

Book thong from Beckyandvince 
I recently come across a lovely little business who sells book thongs and other beautiful beaded items such as earrings. I fell in love with the blues in her Australian range and so ordered myself a book thong. Its absolutely beautiful and made with love and care.

I needed a new everyday handbag after the zip breaking on my other. I took to Amazon to see if I could find a reasonably priced bag and found this one. It fits alot in it and has many pockets which are handy.  I love that it can be worn as a backpack as well as a shoulder bag. They also sell it in many colours and my mum took a liking to it so I've treated her to one in the grey colourway which is more like a beige.

I also needed a new purse and opted for this one from Amazon. I like that it's not too big or bulky and I can fit all my cards in. It's also has RFID blocking technology which is a bonus.

I was sent copies of the magazine for review purposes and love them so had to feature them in the post too. They are filled with so many great activities to do with children and you can read my full review here.
