Favourite February Things

Gosh, where did February go? In fact, where have the past two months go? Didn't 2014 start like a week ago? I guess not...

So! February favourites! I'll say right now, I highly doubt that I'm going to be doing "beauty" favourites as I hardly ever buy new makeup, or hair stuff, or anything beauty related. Except maybe clothes. I love clothes. So my favourites are really going to be my favourite books, music, maybe clothing, pictures/photography etc. etc. And then I might throw in a random one like food or socks or weather.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 

     So a few months ago a dear friend (gosh, I sound like a grandmother) of mine gave me this book for my birthday. Anyone who knows me well knows I love books. So she gave me this book with the thoughts I would read it right away. Unfortunately, it got put off again and again until I forgot about it. A week or two ago, I found it in my dresser and picked it up to read.
     I am absolutely loving it! I love the author's writing style and the book is really interesting. I have been enjoying World War II books lately. The author's writing style is engaging and very creative. The words that he uses are truly remarkable. I haven't finished it yet but I definitely recommend it!

 Moringa Shower Gel, Body Scrub and Body Butter - The Body Shop

So this month I guess I will make an exception to the "no beauty favourites" because this stuff is incredible. I went shopping with another dear friend last weekend and neither of us were really in a clothing buying mood so we went to look at chocolates at Laura Secort and the wonderful smelling stuff at The Body Shop. I bought this lovely little package that had a loofa, shower gel, body scrub and body butter in it. The scent is very relaxing and floral. For some reason, it reminds me of something or someone from when I was really little.

Baptized - Daughtry

As I've mentioned in my "About Me" section, I am a huge Daughtry fan. In November he released his new album "Baptized". It was a different sound than his usual rock sound and I was a little hesitant at first. However, a few more listens through the album and I was hooked. I'm still loving it and it has been on my playlist all month. It's like a soft rock mixed with some pop and a few of the songs are folky. My favourites on the album are probably "Baptized", "Battleships", "Wild Heart", "18 Years" and "Cinderella". Go have a listen (not in the picture below, that's just a picture).

Peanut Butter S'more Bars

These. Are. Incredible. I'm not kidding. These bars a drool inspiring, snatch-before-anyone-else-gets-them, addicting slice of heaven. If you like peanut butter, or chocolate or s'mores you should definitely try them!!

The Hunger Games and Catching Fire

Yes, I'm a little behind on the times here. I only read the series this past month. I'd kinda been putting it off because everyone seemed to love it and I'm a bit of a rebel. Just a bit. But I finally gave in and read the series. The series were pretty good. I think I have fallen in love with Gale. Peeta's a wimp in MHO. So I wasn't enamoured with the books but then I watched the movies with a friend (yes, a dear one xD) and absolutely loved them. They were amazing! I'm trying not to say too much for the risk that there may be someone else out there who is just as behind as I am.

Picture I found on Facebook

Heehee, I love this movie and this picture is funny. Therefore, this picture is awesome.

That's it for this month's favourites!! What have your favourites been this month?

BTW Only 21 days until Divergent comes out! SO FLIPPING EXCITED!!

Song of the Day

This is a Daughtry song but it's not off of his new album. It's called "September" off of his album Leave This Town released in 2009. This is my favourite, favourite song and it has been for almost five years.


  1. I can't wait for the Divergent movie! It doesn't come out until 4th April here though :(

  2. It looks so good!! :D
    Aww, that sucks. :P Do you guys usually have movies out later than us (Canada)?

    1. Yeah, unless they are British movies in which case we normally get them at the same time, which is pretty unfair if you ask me :) Haha
