A River of Roses

February Favourites ♥

I’m currently sat munching on some mini eggs, hanging my head in shame about my terrible YouTube video I just made, hoping that I might be able to write a blog post to make up for it! Cheers to that, except it’s a school night and alcohol isn’t allowed.

There are some items that I’ve recently bought and I thought I’d share them with you today!


1. Tetley’s Berry Fruit Tea
I bought this a while ago with my boyfriend. He had been talking and talking about this miraculous fruit tea that he had bought for work, he finally picked this up for me! Soon after he realised he had bought the wrong one. At first I really didn’t like it, but after adding a little sugar, the subtle flavour comes out and you can taste the berry goodness! 

2. White Jacket
This is just shouting at me in my wardrobe because we’re currently in the minus degree weather and I can’t wear it but it’s so nice and I really want to! Ahh, dilemmas! I think this jacket is definitely gonna be a fave in the spring, but I had to put this little bit of eye candy on this list because it’s been looking at me all month. I bought this from the ASOS sale.


3. Necklace
I also bought this from the ASOS sale! This was basically a replacement for my favourite necklace that Aaron fell on and snapped when he was drunk… except that was leather and couldn’t be fixed. I  love this one though, it’s really different and I feel like I can wear it with a lot of things, it’s really casual too!


4. Yankee Candle
For valentines day Aaron bought me this Sweet Apple Yankee Candle, and I feel like it’s gonna last me forever. It’s my first proper big Yankee Candle and I was a bit scared when I saw the label at first because I thought it was gonna be insanely sweet, but it’s really nice and just smells like pure apples!

5. Chupa Chup Candle
Ohhh, this little gem was a right bargain! I bought it from Tescos for a pound, and it was an accidental buy! We were coming home from seeing Deadpool (amazing, watch it if you haven’t) and Aaron thought it would be good to add an extra 20 minutes onto the journey by going to Tesco’s to get petrol… only to find that the garage was closed off for some reason, so we went shopping instead! I’ve got the Raspberry flavour, but they do a few. I think I might buy the Orange one next, they’ve got such a sweet and yummy scent that leaves you not wanting to leave the room for days.

6. Marble Macbook Skin
I’ve finally joined the club! I absolutely love this new skin from Etsy, aside from the fact that it was an absolute pain in the arse to put on, but it just looks so neat and lovely and I am just so happy with it! Take a look at my review in the review bit, I’ll be under the name Siobhan!

7. Macbook Keyboard Cover
This one I got from amazon, and, in fact, this is so new, I’ve only had it about 2 hours. I’m typing with this on now, and it just makes my keys feel so smooth and spongey, I can’t wait till it gets grubby, as pathetic at that sounds, but I can’t wait to just lift it off, wash it, and have it as good as new! Instead of getting all rocket scientist trying to get in between every key… ain’t nobody got time for dat.

8. Galaxy Chocolate Cake Bars 
Oh ma gawd, hello 14 year old Emma, how are you enjoying your galaxy cake bar? Well 22 year old Emma, I think it’s bloody brilliant if I do say so myself… don’t mind me, y’know, just talking to myself… What a blast from the past this is though!! I used to have these all the time on my lunch breaks in school, and I was dreaming about them earlier this week and just had to get them. So I went to the coop, picked up some salad leaves, and I was like ‘I’m sure there was something else’ … *glances at the bread* BOOM! There it was in all it’s glory… then in my hand… then on the till… then in my belly… mmm. I’ve still got 2 left, don’t worry.

That was definitely the strangest paragraph I’ve ever written, soz.

9. Salmon Salads
This is probably really simple but I always like to balance my shite diet out a little, or maybe pretend to be healthy, but really, the star in this show has to be the Balsamic, I just can’t live without it! 

Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Salad Leaves
  • Don’t forget the rocket
  • Definitely don’t forget the Salmon otherwise it’ll lose it’s name
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar, and lots of it… enough to choke, but don’t die.

And boom, there you have it, just shove it all together, shove it in your mouth, and thank me later.

10. Neewer Ring Light
Say hello to my little friend! This is my new companion, and no, it definitely doesn’t do what it says on the box, but whatever, it works, and it gives me light for my videos and photos, so I’m not complaining!

P.S. I also took a few of these pictures with it!

And there we have it, a little sneak peak of what I’ve been loving this February. I’m gonna do my Winter Favourites a little later on my YouTube, but that’s gonna be at the very end of winter, and we have just short of a month to go yet, so that can wait, but I will post it on here when I’m done.
Thanks for reading, and let me know, what have been some of your favourites this month?!
