February Favourites – Entertainment, Beauty, Kids’ Product, Home Decor

Gosh there have been lots of things we’ve enjoyed this last month. Let’s not procrastinate, I’ll get straight to it…

As the weather has been so terrible, we’ve been cooped up watching TV much more than I’d like, but we’ve found some great shows we’ve not watched before . Firstly, Arthur has been loving Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom on Netflix. It is sooooooooo much better than Peppa Pig (you know how I feel about that little Madame).
Me and the husband have started watching Bloodline (also on Netflix) which is a dark and twisted thriller about an American family. We’re about halfway through the first season and I’m addicted! 
On mainstream TV, I’m so excited that the Great British Design Challenge is back on BBC 2 (Monday – Wednesday 7.00pm). This is like the Bake Off for interior designers… I love it! Some of the designer’s ideas are a bit bonkers, but there are some great ideas for things I’d like to try in my own home.

As you may know, I mainly only use organic/natural skincare items these days. I’ve noticed such an improvement in my skin and these products are much more ethical,  an even bigger bonus!

My favourite skincare item of the month is undoubtedly Skin and Tonic’s Calm Clean – a beautiful organic/natural facial cleanser which smells delicious and removes all makeup and daily yuck, leaving your face fresh and clean. I LOVE it and it is up there with my all time favourite cleansers. 
Secondly, Neal’s Yard Nurturing Rose Shampoo which is just doing wonders for my mixed bag of a mop. I’m growing out my blonde dyed locks and it has been difficult to find a shampoo which suits all of my hair. 
Kids’ Product

Like last month, this is a bit of a random product. We’re getting more into messy play and creating little role play worlds for the boys’ toys. To try and keep the mess contained, I’ve bought a builders’ mixing tray – Arthur loves it and so far it’s been used for messy play with rice, play dough and also serves as a good base for their wooden castle to re-enact rescue missions. I bought this tray from Amazon
Home Decor

We’re just about to create a big picture wall, right up the stairs and into the landing. It’s mainly going to be for family photos, but with a few art bits and some quotes. I’ve recently bought this little print from a shop called Hamish and the Hen on Etsy and I love it… it sums up the boys and my family perfectly.
There’s loads more I could add, but I don’t want to ramble on too much and so I’ll save them for next month. What products/things have you been loving over the last month?

    I love that tray for them. I think my twin girls would enjoy a tray like that to mix and play in without it going everywhere
