Love the idea of monthly favourites, which is a good chance to recommend some interesting things/movies/TV shows/ books/blogs and much more that I’ve loved in a particular month and share it with you all. I’ve seen a lot of YouTubers and bloggers on board this monthly favourites and I’ve benefited from some of the recommendations in the past.
Here are some of mine for Feb…

Little Party Dress
Little Party Dress AKA LPD, a small business based in Sydney, Australia run by a lady boss Kelly. She sells some of the cutest and most stylish outfits. She offers a range of dresses – casual, preppy, dressy, everyday kind and a whole bunch more; her size range starts from 6 and goes all the way up to 18.
Aside from some of the cutest clothes, which I love from that business, the highlight for me was her exceptional customer service. Delivery is fast and the size guide simple and quite accurate. Kel even ships internationally!
Lush, if you don’t know, is sensational smelling store has some of my absolute favourite skin care and bath products. You can smell a Lush store from at least 500 m away! They have cruelty-free, ethically sourced and natural products for the skin, hair and body.
This month I have been experiencing terrible dry skin and poor sleep. And for those troubles, there is nothing like a good, calming lotion. Sleepy is one of Lush’s bestsellers. It has the calming lavender fragrance and all the nice things. It is the most delicious smelling lotion I have owned and as a bonus, I sleep like a baby when I have this on. After a nice shower in the night, I slather a generous amount of the lotion and it works like a charm to calm the dry skin and the senses before hitting the bed.

It’s been a while since I read a good thriller that kept me awake. This made the cut. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this book is the author’s debut novel. I can’t wait to read her other works in the future!
Lana is a telemarketer. She merely has a few hours to make a sale or she loses her job. Many miles away, answering one of her sales calls is Liam, a man about to find the best way to kill himself.
This is no ordinary sales call. It’s turning out to be an unravelling of terrifying secrets and dark pasts for both Lana and Liam. It is a fight to keep a man alive while time’s running out. It’s a strange coming together of two strangers who need rescuing in their own ways.
It was that typical edge-of-the-seat thriller. I couldn’t wait to know what happens in the end but didn’t want it to end at the same time. You get the drift right? There was something unexpected till the very end. I finished the book in less than 24 hours and I couldn’t just stop!

I chanced upon Shailaja via Instagram. Thanks to Priyanka from Cookie Crumbs Inc. and some of her awesome recommendations!
Shailaja is one cool mama! She is a parent blogger, SEO strategist, editor, writer and a fabulous human being all rolled into one. In her website, she churns out some interesting content on a wide variety of topics including parenting and blogging.
What I like about Shailaja is how willing she is to share with the world what she knows. It’s not something that a lot of people with the wealth of knowledge she has will be willing to share. As a new blogger I am learning from her and can’t wait to see the amazing things she has to offer.

Time – The Kalief Browder Story on Netflix
If you want to watch one TV show this month, make it this.
Time – The Kalief Browder Story showcases the tragic story of a teenager from Bronx who spent 3 years in one of the toughest prisons in America for a crime he was never convicted for.
This was raw, sad and very eye opening to learn about the justice system in other parts of the world. This was an important documentary for me; it asserted the time that no one is guilty until proven.
Trigger warning: Violence, suicide
