Corinstagram – February

I hate February. I hate that I can’t ever spell February and how it only has 28 days. It’s a stupid month and a stupid…

I hate February. I hate that I can’t ever spell February and how it only has 28 days. It’s a stupid month and a stupid word and I am glad it is over. Despite my hate for the month, it was a pretty good ‘un. Apart from the whole stalker incident.

For those of you that asked, the guy was pretty average on looks. He wasn’t beautiful but wasn’t ugly. Just your average looking guy. I am now calling him my stalker because at 5:45am the next morning, he was in his garden in the rain and I saw him looking at me through the window. Doom. It’s been a couple of days now and there has been no attempt to make any further contact so I might take away his stalker title and give him something more respectable. Like Josh, which is his name, by the way.

I feel like I’ve made a lot of improvements with the blog in February, the twitter chats are going well and I’ve branched from of doing solely outfit posts to doing some beauty reviews, food posts and other things which I’m happy about! I never ever thought, this time last year, that I would still be blogging consistently! I often wonder what I would be doing with my time if I wasn’t blogging, probably playing xBox which is just as fun, but not as rewarding.

Here are my instagram photos for last month.

  1. A Lilly Salad.
  2. A spider in my bathroom. Part of my nightly routine is to hoover all spiders out of my room/bathroom because I get so many. I’m a basement dweller, see. It’s distressing and even though I searched Google extensively to ensure that spiders die when hoovered up, and yahoo answers, the spiderwebs that have appeared inside my hoover drum tell me otherwise. It makes hard to sleep at night.
  3. Pasta with the Lilly salad.
  4. My snitch!
  5. I went to Toby Carvery with one of my old work colleagues!
  6. The Carvery. 
  7. Another food masterpiece a la Lilly – she made me this wonder breakfast.
  8. Terry came to visit!
  9. More Carvery!

  1. Cycling at the amazing gym.
  2. I worked early a lot. I was not happy about this and was going mental towards the end of the week.
  3. Only good thing about working early is the cooked breakfasts at work.
  4. The salad bar at work, this is a new things and I love it.
  5. Christine and I chilling out – this is exactly the position we are both in as I write this, apart from we have exchanged blankets.
  6. I discovered the ‘breakfast wrap’. The guy who works in the canteen was not happy because I kept asking for this and he has to make it separately. He told me not to tell other people about it. So I told other people about it and now we all enjoy breakfast wraps. Sorry, Adam!
  7. A naturally occurring kringlet after letting my hair dry on it’s own.
  8. I watched a live concert by one of my favourite bands, The National. It brought back memories.
  9. Salad and risotto. Don’t worry, I took photos and they’ll be coming soon.

I didn’t publish a post yesterday so I have photos from day 5 and 6 to share. I only have today left and then can publish the results. Thank goodness because I’m getting really fed up of taking photos of my face and having to upload them/look at them. I’m very sick of my face. Let’s punch it.

My skin is still dry. I don’t feel like I’ve had any improvement with pore size or the lines on my forehead. The only change to my forehead is that it seems to be flakier and dryer. I may switch my moisturiser to something more intense. On the plus side – I’ve only had one spot this week! After the 7 day challenge, I will most likely continue to use it and do a few weekly updates with any changes that are happening.

  4. February is at last gone! Even if it’s a short month it’s too cold and humid. The best thing of February is that it comes before March, one of my favorite months.

  9. I used to vac up spiders too…consequently I never emptied my vac in fear of them all crawling out to get me – eventually it was so full almost completely stopped working…
    Also used to be terrified when the vac actually got near enough to them that the suction would actually send the spider flying towards me and it would miss going up the nozzle.
    Of course in my vision it landed on my face every time…this never happened but it totes could, right?
