Insta-Living Vol. 06: February Favourites

Happy March! Although, spring seems to be a little bit away for me, perhaps you’re lucky enough to be in a warm climate ... soon. I have gathered some of my favourite Insta-lifestyle images from my February, some of which includes a lot more culinary moments (meals that I cooked), and beauty pieces that I am looking forward to. 
  
I have recently been watching the UK Television series, Broadchurch, and it’s quite good. But, let’s be honest, I will see almost anything that David Tennant plays in, the show also stars Olivia Colman. We're also excited to binge watch on Netflix with the American version of House of Cards season three, starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, amongst a long roster of other acting talent.  
Above: Loving these shows at the moment, Working on new personal laptop, Bistro wall art for our coffee/tea bar area, Parisian style milk/juice glass bottles, My winter beauty travelling favourites, Writing letters to friends, New printed table mats. 


I had a beauty haul day of ordering things that I needed online as well as running errands, and picking up items that I have been running out of. This year, I wanted to take a risk with some of my makeup, because even though I have my usual favourites, I usually always revert to the same routine, which is pretty low-maintenance (give or take a smoky eye here and there). 
Here’s what I ordered that I've been waiting to try: Anastasia of Beverly Hills contour kit, and a new Chanel lipstick colour. 
First row: evening snapshot of the beauty in nature, An ombre sky, snowy midweek journey, Middle row: more behind the scenes from making scallion pancakes for Chinese New Year with friends, Seafood stew on a cold winter's day and my new Le Creuset bakeware, I made salmon and Gruyere cups (recipe coming soon) for a dinner party, Last row: I also made spinach cups as well, Taking time out for tea, Black truffle pasta with mushrooms, Marsala wine, and caramelized onions, etc. 

How was your February? What have you been up to lately?

  16. Hi Madison! I'm looking forward to see you wear that beautiful Chanel lipstick. The contour kit looks fabulous too. I haven't heard of the brand before. Warum wohnst du nicht in der Nähe. Du bist so eine tolle Köchin, dass ich mich immer selbst einladen würde. Es sieht alles super lecker aus. Happy Thursday Madison!

    I follow several YouTubers who all love Broadchurch as well. What do you think it is comparable to? I love the Chanel lipstick. I'm sure it will look incredible on you.

  31. I enjoyed broadchurch (yes, love david tennant!) and am looking forward to the next season.

    Love that lip color - sometimes it's good to do something a bit bold and different.

    Liebe Madison, herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deinem neuen Laptop! Ich finde da macht das Arbeiten und Schreiben mit dem richtigen Gerät doch gleich noch mehr Spaß :) Und bei uns ist es zwar immer noch kalt und es liegt weiterhin Schnee aber man kann den Frühling in der Luft schon erschnuppern und auch die Natur klingt schon wunderbar nach Frühling.

    Alles Liebe und ein schönes Wochenende wünscht Dir von Herzen, Rena

    Alles Liebe von Madison xx
