This post is coming a bit later than I'd planned; it's been a pretty busy week leaving crawling into bed a lot easier than I'm used to! February was a pretty quite month so I didn't get that much ticked off my 101 in 1001 challenge, but I did get to read a lot of books which made for a nice treat.
So, here's how the 101 in 1001 challenge looks two months in.
Find a skin routine that works for me
While I'm still not quite set in my skincare routine I've definitely found a lot of new products that are really improving my skin this month. I had a facial with Decleor and bought a few new products including their Ylang Ylang Night Balm which is amazing! I'll be posting some product reviews over the next week or two.
Watch 200 new films
I really don't remember watching many films in February but I somehow managed to watch seven new films. After wanting to see it since I saw the trailer last year I finally went to the cinema to watch The Wolf of Wall Street. I know there's been a lot of hype about this film, but I can honestly see that it's simply amazing! I laughed, it cringed (a lot) and I may have even shed a few tears - I cannot wait for this film to be released on DVD, I need to watch it again!
Read 50 new books
I've been a bit of a book worm this month, and read six new books - which for me is incredible! My favourite book of the month has to be The Fault in Our star by John Green. I don't believe I have ever cried so much whilst reading a book. The story was amazing and the characters were so easy to relate to. I posted a review last week which you can read here if you fancy a little extra reading.
Go to 10 gigs
Last month I went to three amazing gigs, it would have been four but I couldn't quite manage to fit in three gigs on one night! The first gig I went to was a night hosted by Elevator Music at the Norwich art Centre. The amazing Wooden Arms were headlining and put on a great show as always. I've seen them quite a few times now and they never fail to impress me. If you've not heard any of their stuff I'd really recommend listening to False Start, it's one of my favourite songs of theirs. I also saw The Day the Robots Came, also and the NAC and went to one of Bare Feet Record's Fresh Meat nights at the Birdcage. Both of these gigs were on the same night so there was a little bit of trekking back and forth across the city but it was definitely worth it!
Read all of the Harry Potter books
It's only taken me a decade or so, but I have finally started reading the Harry Potter books. Last month I read the first three books and am now waiting on The Goblet of Fire to be delivered so I can finish the series. I really enjoyed the first books, they are so much better than the films and explain so things in so much more detail - I really wish I'd read the books earlier!
So that's all I've managed to tick off this month. I've got a few things lined up for March and April so that I can tick some more items of the list - I can't wait!
What have you been up to over the last month?
