3 March 2011


This post would have been up a lot earlier if blogger had saved everything i'd written so I apologize for how long it's taken me to sort it out! I thought it would be nice to write a little roundup of my memories and favourites of February to share with you.
When I went to Bournemouth I put my iPod on shuffle for the four hour journeys there and back and rediscovered lots of music i'd forgotten about. Maroon 5's newest album was one of them and their cover of Alicia Keys' If I Aint Got You is a beaut! 

Blueberries, Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of honey is my new found love of February! It's simple, quite healthy and tastes amazing! It reminds me of summer even though the weather has been crap this month! I've also been loving M&S Chicken & Broccoli Pie which is the perfect comfort food. I don’t eat a lot of ‘ready meals’ but this one is to die for! I think it’s the sauce and the creamy mash that does it for me and it's also good value for money as it serves two even though the packet says one.

I can't get enough of Burt's Bees Almond Hand Cream; I actually don’t think I can explain how nice this smells! It’s a bit like marzipan and I honestly just want to eat it! It’s a lovely product and works a treat on any dry skin around my cuticles or in between my fingers. I never thought I’d say this but I actually like it more than Lemony Flutter by Lush!

The past couple of months have been all about trashy TV for me. Sun Sex & Suspicious ParentsTake Me OutMy Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and One Born Every Minute are just a few I’ve been loving. I’m not normally a big TV watcher and I think there are certain times in the year when there just isn’t anything worth watching. Most recently i've been loving Junior Doctors: Your Life In Their Hands on BBC3 which i'm sure i'll be watching throughout March too.

February saw me give (a little bit of) blood, get glasses and visit Bournemouth for three days. For me that's quite eventful as there are quite a few months where i'll do nothing! Parsley also turned 3 which made me realise how fast the past few years have gone. I can still remember when she was tiny! I also set myself up a LastFM profile which has highlighted the crazy amount of music I listen to! I'm pretty sure i'll be at 9000 plays by the end of March ;)

February was also the month I decided to change my blog. Your support on my post about it was so overwhelming and shown how much I couldn't live without blogging. I've only been writing what I like for a couple of weeks but I already feel so much better about it and explaining it all in my blogpost lifted a huge weight off my shoulders.

I can't believe it's March already! It only seems like a few weeks ago we were celebrating New Year so this year is already going so fast! It's inspired me to work a bit harder and get some coursework done as my deadlines are getting a bit too close and before I know it i'll be doing my exams! I haven't got a lot planned for March but I am looking forward to Pancake Day next week!


  1. I am soooooo looking forward to pancake day, it's my favourite day of the year, I'm so sad pahahha xxx

  2. love the "hello march" picture, it's so cute :)
    and I discovered how nice greek yoghurt nice is this feb too! I like it with chopped up strawberries and golden syrup.. :S slightly less healthy than yours! xx

  3. I'm sat here thinking...'well hello march' lol
    love the post, in fact I've been loving all your posts recently.

  4. oh I love greek yoghurt and fruit... I could eat it all day, which would kind of take away the healthy point of it I guess... well done on giving blood :) x

  5. Love this round-up, sounds like you've had a great month! That snack sounds amazing. x

  6. I love rediscovering old music! I tend to only listen to the most recent stuff that I've put on my iPod because when I do listen to it, it's never for long, so it always takes a long journey to remember that I've actually got other music!
    Good for you for giving blood; I can't imagine being able to do that. And I think I need to start working harder otherwise there's no chance that I'm going to uni in September! x

  7. I am so funny about having my iPod on shuffle, sometimes I like to rediscover old music I've forgotten about but other times it really annoys me if there's a specific song I want it to play!

  8. I love discovering old music like that! Unfortunately my ipod doesn't have much memory and I end up deleting a lot of the old stuff :(.
    Those TV shows have been AMAZING. Shame there all coming to an end soon and there will be nothing to watch now! I might actually get some work done now!
    Sounds like you've had an amazing month, I can't believe its March already either!

  9. Greek Yoghurt and crunchy cereal is so tasty!!!
    I want some now! (In Greece would be nice:))
    I'm Glad you are feeling better now that you are writing about whatever makes you happy!
    Fab blog hunni :)xxx

  10. All the food you mentioned sounds so, so good! My tummy is rumbling, right now! ;-D Might have to give the Burt's Bees hand cream a go!

  11. love your feb faves, that yoghurt sounds to die for :) xx

  13. I know - Maroon 5 are my favorite band ever, and that album is great! I saw them live last month and they played so many songs from it - that cover is beautiful!
