Emma Loves: February 2013

The second in the series of 'Emma Loves' posts. To explain to new readers of Written On The Sky, it's a post in which I list ten things that I find special/interesting about the month. It can be things I've bought, things I like or appreciate in that particular month. I hope you enjoy!

1. My new bunting mug. It's so cute, and perfect for herbal teas. 

2. Spring: Initially, I thought that Autumn was my favourite season. Orange leaves, hot chocolates and snuggles in bed. Spring 2013, however, has led me to think that maybe Spring is indeed my favourite. It's revitalising, fresh, interesting and fun. I look forward to the sun shining more in the early mornings, being outside in fields and having picnics, wearing ballerina flats and listening to the new Alessi's Ark album. A year ago I was turning twenty-one, and I was in Paris. A year later, I'm turning twenty-two, I've just started a part-time job in fashion, I'm spending my third Valentines Day with David, and I'm finishing my very last semester at university. I feel enveloped in a reassuring atmosphere, as if "everything will be alright" in the end, and I will reach my goals and fulfil my wishes. It's quite lovely, really.

3. My birthday! I'm turning twenty-two, and I'm very excited. It's one of my favourite numbers too.

4. Alessi's Ark

I'm very much looking forward to the new album recorded by Alessi's Ark. The Still Life should be available in April, but the new single is out now! So be sure to get it. It sounds great!

5. Dresses

I'm loving skater dresses at the moment. The fit and flare style suits my figure perfectly, as I have a small waist and big hips. Here's one I adore!

Red Fit & Flare Dress - £20.00 from Topshop

6. Sex And The City - £29.99 (Entire Series Boxset)

I know quite a few women that don't like Sex And The City, but I think it's hilarious! It's brilliant because it delves into issues that men don't think women discuss, and it has lots of touching moments that remind us why our friends are very special to us all. I'm on the last series, but I don't think I will be watching it all until I finish studying! Boo.

7. Quorn Cocktail Sausages - £2.85

I've been a vegetarian for eight years, now. There was that month when I started eating meat again at university because I thought it would be cheaper. But it wasn't, and I gave myself food poisoning after cooking green bacon. However, Quorn have recently brought out these cocktail sausages. As soon as I had one, I went back to being eight years old again, feeling like I was at a friend's birthday party at Snakes and Ladders. Being a veggie doesn't have to be lacking in tasty food anymore, and this particular product brings back a bout of nostalgia without hurting anyone or anything. Marvellous!

8. Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel is a beautiful and ditsy woman to look up to! Her sense of style is amazing, and being extremely clumsy myself, she provides women everywhere in the world with an excuse to be that way and be proud of it. I'm a big fan of She & Him, and was very happy to hear that there will be a new album coming out soon! I've not kept up-to-date with New Girl, but I thought the first series was hilarious.

9. New duvet cover!

I love the new duvet cover we've got. It's from Tesco and it only cost £10.97, I believe. Such good value, and reminds me a lot of a Cath Kidston duvet cover I had in my first year of university. Unfortunately it was a single sized one!

10. Studying

I'm hoping to become a bit of a Hermione Granger in the month of February. I'm learning to love studying and appreciate what I've got left of my university experience. Hopefully I can notice an increase in marks, too! But yes, lots of work to get through in the upcoming weeks despite lots of fun and interesting holidays i.e. birthday and Valentines
