5 things I enjoyed in February
I know we're at the beginning of April but as they say, better latter than never so here are five things that I enjoyed during the month of February 2018.
First things first, I guess I have to start with the event that got its own post already: the Harry Potter exhibition at the British Library. Since I have already a full blog post about this one I will not go on too much about it again but you can read the full story here. I don't visit museums very often and this has made me realise that I actually really enjoy it and that I should try and visit museums / temporary exhibitions more often.
I hope you will excuse the bit of a blurry picture I have to offer here but I went to see Andy Brown at his gig in Birmingham and it was such a good time. I originally know him as the lead singer of the band Lawson, which I have seen live a couple of times, so it was a bit eerie to see him perform as a solo artist but I had a blast. The album is not out yet so most of the songs he played I had never heard before. I'm not the biggest fan of going to a gig without having heard the songs before because I like to be able to sing along. However hearing the songs live has made me so hyped for the album to come out in June. I think my favourite one was a song called About Last night so I'm keeping my ears peeled for this one on the studio version. I also have to give a special mention to the random guy from the audience who thought it would be a good idea to volunteer to get up on stage to sing Lawson's song Juliet despite quite obviously not knowing the song whatsoever. At least it made everyone laugh!
During the second weekend of February I visited my family in France and on the Saturday, my mum, my sister and me went to a show / exhibition all about knitting, sewing and anything that you can create with a thread and a needle. It was such a nice time to spend with my mum and my sister. We took part in a little workshop to make our own tote shops which took me a bit down memory lane because I used to make some of my own clothes when I was a teenager. I also bought a kit to make my own little make up bag and another kit to make my own headband. As you can see in the picture above, I've finished said headband and the instructions were so easy to follow and it really made me want to do other knitted goodies. The brand that I bought the kit from is called Maille Name Is and they actually ship all over the world so you can visit their website here if you are at all interested.
Coline aka Et Pourquoi Pas Coline is a blogger / Youtuber that I have been following for years - - I think we're getting close to 10 years - and I absolutely love her style and her persona. So when she announced that she was doing a collab with the French Birch Box, I knew it would be a no-brainer. This was not the first one that she had done but I was really interested by this one that contained only cruelty free and organic products. I am always excited to try new products and I find that this type of box is the perfect opportunity to do so. Now I have not tried every products in the box just yet but the ones I have I have been really happy with. I think I might review some of them more in depth in the future but for this month, it's really the concept that I enjoyed.
Finally I thought I would share a bit of music! This song came out on 14th February and I had it on repeat for the rest of the month. Give it a listen and enjoy :)
