Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 26. I’ve had this linen two piece set/suit since last summer, but this was my first time wearing both pieces together. Even though the colour scheme of this outfit is very neutral, I think the pattern mix and the bright white boots make the outfit interesting.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I gave The Douce palette by Juvia’s Place another try, and once again I was disappointed by the lack of pigmentation in the shadows. The pigmentation of my other Juvia’s Place palettes is incredible, so I don’t know if I just got a bad product.

Here’s what I wore Thursday February 21. Ever since I bought this lime green jumper, I’d been wanting to wear it with this floral skirt. Then I added the snake print boots, then the scarf to match the muted peachy colour of the roses on the skirt, and suddenly I had put together a really fun outfit.

I’ve been buying a few drugstore products here and there lately, so I thought I would do a collective drugstore haul. I’ve heard such good things about the Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation and the Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage concealer, so I thought I would try those out. I’ll been doing first impressions posts on both products. I bought the Maybelline Face Studio Pore Minimizing primer hoping it would be a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional primer. I did a comparison of the two, which I’ll do a post on very soon. As you might have noticed, I don’t ususally fill in my brows, but I thought I would give the e.l.f. Brow Pencil a try. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m going to fill in my brows on a daily basis, I just wanted to try it out. Lastly, I’ve purchased three products from Essence. I really like a lot of Essence products, so I’m excited to try these out. I bought the Essence Matt Touch blush (shade: 10 Peach Me Up!), the Essence Camoflage+ Matt concealer (shade: 10 Light Rose), and then I was very intrigued by three new eyeshadow palettes. I loved the colour scheme of all three of them, but I decided to try out one first, and if I like it, I might get the other ones. The palette I chose is called G’Day Sydney, and it’s a neutral palette with some pops of green. I’ve tested out an Essence eyeshadow palette before, which I wasn’t impressed by (check out my first impressions here), but the shades in this palette swatched beautifully, so I’m excited to see if they’re any better.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love the bright teal eye make-up! I really want to do more bright one colour eye looks, because they’re easy and fairly quick to do, and they’re so much fun.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 19. My green jeans were a perfect match for my new second hand jumper. I love that this outfit is so fun and colourful yet really casual and comfortable.

It feels like February just flew by, but I don’t mind, because tomorrow the first month of spring begins. The past few days have been very nice weather-wise, and I really hope that sunny, warmer weather will continue. I had a lot of favourites in February, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.
Brown corduroy trousers: These trousers have been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them last autumn, and for some reason I hadn’t featured them in a favourites post before, so I thought it was about time. They are the most versatile non-denim pair of trousers I own.
Nike Classic Cortez sneakers: These shoes have also been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them. They’re just so classic, and they add a ’70s touch to any outfit.
Cherry hair clips: I’m loving the hair clip trend (I love hair accessories in general), and I’ve been loving wearing these cherry ones. I love how they add a little extra something to any outfit.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Rose in the Air: Wet n Wild is such a great affordable make-up brand, and their eyeshadow palettes are so good! This one has pretty much been my go-to palette this past month. They colours are stunning and they’re really pigmented and easy to blend.
A Star is Born (film): I FINALLY watched this incredible film in the very beginning of the month. It was definitely as great as I hoped it would be; the music is great and both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga played their roles so well! If you still haven’t watched this, go do it right away.
