February Favourites

Does anyone else find that although February is the shortest month of the year, it always seem to take longer to end? Anyway, this month was pretty eventful and I have a lot of favourites to share with you, so here we go. Makeup // Maquilhagem Base This month has been particularly cold in London and so I’ve been trying to amp up the glow and warmth factors in the base products I’ve been using. Rosie for Autograph’s moisturiser is great because it makes your skin really soft and gives it a subtle glow. I use this on days when…

Testament of Youth // Testemunho de Juventude

source: facebook.com/testamentofyouthfilm One thing I really enjoy is finding films on Netflix that I hadn’t heard of before, but end up loving. Recently I’ve noticed Testament of Youth popping up in the list of films Netflix recommended for me, and after seeing it mentioned at the BAFTAs – where a clip was played to showcase Taron Egerton’s performance as a nominee for the EE Rising Star Award – I was convinced I needed to watch it.

Mad Max: Fury Road // Mad Max: Estrada da Fúria

source: facebook.com/madmaxmovieuk Mad Max: Fury Road was the first Oscar Best Picture nominee I saw this year, which was fitting given its release date was all the way back in Summer. One thing I have to admit: I am a Mad Max newbie – I was aware of the films, but aside from knowing it was a post-apocalyptic setting, Mel Gibson played Max and Tina Turner had a role, as well as a kick-ass song, in one of the original films, I knew very little. But the reviews were great, and I was very curious. And George Miller, the brilliant…
