Hot Right Now : February

It’s the month of LOVE, and let’s just say there are plenty of things we’re loving this month! We’ve been talking all things Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, and once they were over, Fashion Week! Our campaign this month is ‘The Lust List‘, and it’s safe to say it’s a long ol’ list! Here are the books, music, products, films and more that we’re totally lusting over!


This month we’ve had Sundara Karma’sYouth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect‘ on repeat in the office. With 12 tracks that give us serious summer vibes, we can’t get enough!


This month we’ve been loving flipping the pages of blogger Estée Lalonde’sBloom‘. With the tagline ‘navigating life and style‘ this book is filled with beauty, fashion, travel, home, and personal stories and experiences from Estée, including the struggles she faced making the move from Canada to the UK to be with her love.

TV & Film

We had to go with a Netflix series that has had us gripped this month. The OA has become our binge watch, and although we haven’t made our way fully through season 1 yet, we’re addicted to trying to work out what’s going on, what ‘The OA‘ actually means, and what the hell is going to happen next. If you liked Stranger Things, you’re going to love this.

Beauty Products

February has been a month of lusting over a LOT of beauty products, but out top two come from our Brand of the Month, First Aid Beauty, and a new release from Pixi

This. Primer. Is. Life. Seriously though. We’ve been using this throughout February, and not only does it help to hydrate and moisturise skin whilst creating the perfect base for your makeup, it also smells incredible and is perfect for wearing alone on days that you don’t want to wear makeup but want that little big of coverage to blur out any imperfections.

With the kinda harsh weather we’ve been experiencing this month, Pixi’s Peel and Polish has been an essential to ensuring our skin is on top form. It basically gently exfoliates dead skin cells away to reveal a smoother complexion, restores brightness and gives you a healthy glow!


Another month, another stalk through Instagram. We came across the babe that is Charmie at the beginning of the month when we were looking for someone to feature in our new video series #HQBeautyHacks. A quick scroll through Charmie’s instagram and you will soon have learned loads of tips, tricks and hacks when it comes to hair and makeup.

What are you obsessing over this February? Let us know over on Twitter and Instagram!
