February Frolickings

Time for my monthly recap on what I've been doing, reading, listening to, wearing and seeing. February has definitely been more busy than January with lots of goings on and little time for turning pages.

This month my reading hasn't been too great at all. My one books a week resolution has flown out the window but I have managed to squeeze a couple in.

I love Bill Bryson a lot and have read a few other of his books. Neither here Nor there is about his journey through Europe and I actually meant to read this in 2009 when I went inter railing but never got round to it. He is one of the few authors who actually makes me laugh out loud! I started reading Scott Pilgrim well before the film came out but never got round to finishing it. Dom bought me the first graphic novel for Christmas and I've been loving all the illustrations, if you liked the film I definitely recommend you read the comic!

I know it's a bit old now but I've been listening obsessively to The XX, I just love the chilled out melodies as I sit on the bus to and from work.

This month I've been to London Fashion Week where I got to meet some wonderful bloggers and see some amazing clothes and jewellery. I was delighted to get a Mulberry tote with my press pass.

Also been skiing in La Rosiere, France with the family over half term and have been wearing my leopard print coat from H&M non stop as it keeps me nice and warm. We stayed at a friends chalet and had such a fun week.

Snood from Primark
hat from eBay
Orange thermals from Topshop SNO
Snow boots from a random shop in La Rosiere

Also seen this Burberry look-a-like Topshop coat all over the place. Think I prefer the Zara version though.

My blog shout out of the month goes to Feathers of Inspiration because not only is the blog a wonderful read but also because Filipa leaves me the most hilarious comments ever!
Love this bow belt from River Island

So there you go, another month quickly gone by but hopefully spring is just around the corner and we can leave the tights in the cupboard and coats on the hangers.

See you in March x

  7. Filipa is a gem isn't she?

    Ah, how I love Bill Bryson. I think Mother Tongue is probably one of my favourite books of all time and I howl reading his travel books.
