February Favourite Finds + GIVEAWAY!

Below are my top three February favourite finds followed by a giveaway.



Rimmel London ScandalEyes Kate Mascara 
I "idol-eyes" Kate Moss' signature smokey eye look & love trying to replicate this look as far as possible. Before we proceed any further, yes, I do realise that Kate Moss is a gorgeous supermodel and I am totally not!  

Thankfully, to make replicating Kate's makeup look slightly easier for me, she has kindly collaborated with Rimmel London to design her first ever mascara, the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Kate Mascara.



This mascara is definitely one of my February favourite finds. It comes in a deluxe, stylish gunmetal coloured tube (what else would you expect from a super model!) featuring Kate's autograph in red.

The colour of this mascara is the blackest pigment ever released by Rimmel London and the applicator brush is in the unique shape of a broken heart.


I love the cleverly shaped applicator brush. It fits perfectly into the natural shape of my lash line and makes so much more sense than a straight applicator brush.

The thinner tip of this applicator brush makes it easy to coat the traditionally harder to reach smaller inner lashes. The brush leaves my lashes beautifully separated with no clumping.

I love the colour and volume this mascara provides. For $16.95 this mascara is a relatively cheap way to replicate Kate's lashes. Thanks Kate and Rimmel London for a  great everyday mascara.

David Beckham Instinct Gold Edition
Sophisticated, sensual, strong, dynamic, masculine ........ these are all words that describe both David Beckham AND the latest edition of his Instinct fragrance, Gold Edition.


The original Instinct fragrance is celebrating its 10 year anniversary and has sold an unbelievable 10 million bottles. This equates to two sold every minute! 

Talented, stylish, ridiculously good looking, a hands-on loving dad AND a best selling fragrance designer! Is there nothing that David Beckham does not excel at?

Yes, as you've no doubt worked out by now, I am a huge David Beckham fan but I also do really love this fragrance. It contains notes of lemon, bergamot oil, basil grandvert, cardamon, rosemary, juniper berries, patchouli, vetiver & cedarwood. It is the perfect scent for men and I love it when my husband wears this scent. 



I also love the stylish flask shaped gold bottle that this fragrance comes in. It looks sophisticated and elegant displayed on the bathroom vanity. Yes, David Beckham has scored another winning goal!

Knotlace Necklace
Knotlace necklaces are my third February Favourite Find. These necklaces are amazing! They're lightweight, flexible and can be moulded into a myriad of shapes and styles. They can be worn as necklaces, chokers or bracelets.

I was lucky to win a Knotlace necklace and earrings from Finding Myself Young blog's 3rd Anniversary mega giveaway! For my prize I chose the silver and gunmetal coloured necklace. I have received so many compliments when wearing this unique and quirky necklace. My kids think it looks a bit like a snake! But I think it's a beautiful versatile colour combination that I can wear with any outfit. I also received silver Knotlace earrings.


As I don't have pierced ears and neither does my daughter I thought I'd pass on my good luck and have a giveaway of these striking Knotlace earrings. I've also included a gorgeous turquoise necklace from Colette in the giveaway. This necklace was purchased by me for the giveaway.

    1. My little niece was fascinated by it and was twisting it into all sorts of shapes. It seems very hardy. I didn't need to worry about her playing with it at all which makes a nice change.

  4. I read recently that you're meant to replace your mascara every three months. Which means that a) I'd only use mine once or twice before turfing it and b) I'm LOOOONG overdue for a new one!! x

    1. Great excuse for buying a new one! I did actually read that in someone's blog as well. To be honest I don't replace my mascaras that often. I find every 6 months works well for me and my mascaras to date.

  13. I haven't discovered any fab beauty/fashion products this Feb except for the label Stella. The dresses are perfect for my age. Not teenager stuff but not matronly either. The fabric is non-iron and they are the perfect sizing for me. I bought one on sale at Myer. I'm now in love with Stella! I do like those necklaces... very different.

  21. The turquoise colour of that necklace is just beautiful. I'll also have to try out that Beckham fragrance as Handy Hubby needs a new scent. My recent fave finds are the Chubby Sticks from Clinique - the 01 Curviest Caramel is such a great nude lip colour for every day.
