February Faves

So the shortest month of the year is nearly over so thought I better share my 5 favourite things from this month! Without further ado…

1. Positive self talk 

So I know this probably sounds like a random favourite to have, but I definitely feel like in February I’ve been a bit kinder to myself. This has been through the ways I think and what I say to myself. For a variety of reasons, February has been a pretty stressful and upsetting month, but I’ve got through it and a lot of that has been down to me not being too hard of myself. I hope I can keep up with this mindset into March and beyond.

2. Taking baths 

For some reason in February I’ve taken more baths than I ever normally do! In this pic I’m enjoying a cheeky snack in the bath, as you do! I forgot how relaxing baths actually are and how they really help me to have a good nights sleep, so I’m definitely planning on having more in March.

3. New hair 

So I’ve not actually had new hair for much of February, but I am totally loving it so far! I’ve wanted to go ombré for ages so went for it and think it looks fab. It’s quite natural and not too over the top which is totally me. I’ve also had quite a lot taken off  the length, and whilst I’m still a bit like ‘oh my gosh, where has it all gone?’, I know it’ll do my hair the world of good. Annoyingly, you can’t really tell too much from this pic, but it’s definitely a bit different to how it was before.

4. Custard cream bag 

Oh my golly gosh, don’t you just think that this is the coolest bag ever? I was very kindly sent this bag from Yoshi this month, and it will be featured in a post coming soon to the blog. I love the shade and how it goes with so many things, as well as being cute and  quirky! The only problem is, it keeps making me want to snack on biscuits!

5. The Skinny Bakery


The Skinny Bakery very kindly sent me this awesome selection of goodies after I recently won a competition with them. Again, I’ll be reviewing them on the blog soon so won’t say too much, but I definitely enjoyed my delivery! It’s definitely been a treat this February having them in my life.
And those are my February faves! What have been your faves this month? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time…

Jean xoxo

    Your hair looks really pretty! I am heading to the salon on Thursday and I am thinking it’s definitely time for something new.

      Thank you! You should definitely go for a new look 😊

    Positive self-talk is money! Girl, we all need to be doing more of this. Why are we so hard on ourselves?

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      February 27, 2017 / 7:27 pm

      I know, right?! We should definitely love ourselves more! ❤

  3. February 27, 2017 / 8:56 pm

    Sounds like you’ve had a very busy month already. I really like that purse that you showed it was super cute

      February 27, 2017 / 9:02 pm

      Yep, busy February! Thanks, I love it! ❤

    Great choices for your picks for the month. Let’s face it February for most of us is cold( not so much this year), snowy and we do things in doors, so it is not surprising you are taking baths.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      February 27, 2017 / 9:03 pm

      Thanks! Gotta love a bath 😊

  5. February 27, 2017 / 11:22 pm

    Awesome February faves! Mine would be my first Fab,Fit,Fun box, which was the Editor’s Box. I totally love all the contents, and definitely worth my money!

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:25 pm

      Thank you! That sounds like a great box 🙂

    I am in desperate need of color on my hair. I went ombre years ago, and it was the best choice ever! Sadly I didn’t keep it up, and all that beauty is gone. I really need to do that again.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:22 pm

      Yeah you should totally do it again!

    I definitely have to stop being so hard on myself!! I usually come home from work daily with low self esteem! Something I really need to work on! Thanks for the reminder!!

      Its so important to try! So difficult though sometimes. Have a great March!

    I am totally a victim of being too hard on myself. I really need to be better about it. I do like the taking a bath part. It might help me relax.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:21 pm

      It can be really difficult to get away from, but small steps can make a lot of difference. Baths are totally the way forward!

  10. February 28, 2017 / 4:35 am

    Sounds like a great month to me. I especially like the bakery goodies. Anytime there is food involved, it is a good thing.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:20 pm

      You’re so right! They were very yummy!

    Takings baths is one of my favourite things but when we moved into our new place it didn’t have a bath :O I’ve also been wating to freshen up my hair but don’t know what to do…I loove a subtle ombre as well so I might be leaning in that direction!

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:19 pm

      Ahh that sucks that you don’t have a bath, you’ll have to make sure you pamper yourself in other ways 🙂 Yeah, you should definitely give ombre a go!

    Yes yes yes for baths! I got some new Radox bubbles and it makes the whole house smell so lovely! Also that TREK cocoa protein bar is my favourite thing ever! Right on par with Cliff peanut butter bar.
    Ps- your new hair looks lovely:) xx

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:17 pm

      That sounds fab! What smell is it? Yum, I’ve not tried that one. Thank you 🙂

  16. February 28, 2017 / 1:51 pm

    I love taking baths! It’s a great way for me to unplug and rest my mind for a bit. I agree that it helps with sleep!

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:13 pm

      Yeah, baths do us the world of good!

    Love that you included positive self talk. THis is something I strive to work on, because sometimes I can beat myself up. We all can right? Be kind to yourself!

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:08 pm

      You’re so right! It can be difficult, but its important to try and do as much as possible.

    Positive self-talk is so important. I’m always talking to my husband about that and reminding him how important it is to talk positively around our kids.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:07 pm

      It really is. And like you say, its so important around kids, to make sure they grow up thinking positively in this very negative world!

  23. March 1, 2017 / 7:27 am

    Time flies! February end now we’re in March, but definitely agree with you to have some faves in a month. The purse is cute, but love your statement necklace.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:06 pm

      It definitely does! Thank you 🙂

  24. March 1, 2017 / 11:19 am

    Yes your Custard cream bag is definitely lovely and super cute! I am also glad and thankful for my February because it was productive and I enjoyed every moment of the day!

  26. March 1, 2017 / 12:27 pm

    Your new hair looks fabulous! I once chopped off long hair to get a pixie and that was an “oh my god, where did my hair go” period of my life.

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:04 pm

      Thank you! It can be really scary sometimes, but quite liberating too!

    Loving your hair and positive self talk is always awesome! Do you read any books on positive self talk? I’d love to see you write a book review if you haven’t already!

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 3, 2017 / 8:02 pm

    Definitely have to be much nicer to each other. It can be so easy to be nice to others yet sometimes we are so harsh to ourselves. Love your favorites and I just got a haircut and color change a few weeks ago 🙂

    • asseenonjean@outlook.com
      March 6, 2017 / 5:06 pm

      For sure! We need to be kind to ourselves so others can be too. Thanks!
