The little things & small pleasures of February
1. I’ve knitted a 3D heart !
Haha, yes, so here I admit I was pretty proud. I told you about my new passion for knitting already in the Instant Plume of January. So, since then, I multiply new knitting projects, getting my inspiration from free patterns I find online. For Valentine’s Day, I was inspired by the pattern given generously by We Are Knitters to knit a heart (which you will find here for those who want to try). Rather easy, and really too cute, right?
So, it made me want to try to knit a teddy, hehe. I have a friend who is expecting a baby, it will be perfect as an excuse to train myself !
Any knitters among you?

2. Beauty crushes
This month, it’s two products from Clinique and Carmex that have pleased me the most.
Clinique is a brand I’ve been using for years, since I actually started to put on some make up. I have never been disappointed with their products. And I do not know if you’re also using their Chubby Stick, which is a cream cheek blush, but I’m a fan of it. I mentioned it to you in my first YouTube beauty tutorial and in this post. Well, well in February I tested a new color and wow … I love it! Fresh, bright, perfect for the coming spring. I can only recommend it if you want to give a boost to your pretty pink cheeks!

The second product that really pleased me was this Carmex lip balm. Here, in the Scandinavian countries, it is one of the favorite products of all beauty bloggers and Youtubers. I will be sincere with you, at first I asked myself a little “why …?”. The packaging doesn’t look so good (very medical, not very glamorous), no fruity smell as I like … but hey I still tested it for curiosity. And … I can tell you something: what it doesn’t have in the aesthetic and glamor side, it catches it up to 1000% in efficiency. It’s simple, as an addict to lip balms (I must confess), I had never found such a qualitative product. No more dry lips, ever! But instead soft and beautiful lips! It is SUPER moisturizing, and in addition its small minty effect is really pleasant when applying. In short, personally, I do not change anymore! I found my lip balm ! And so of course I recommend it! Plus it doesn’t cost much !

3. The true “real interview” of the blog on Hivency
This month, there was a first real interview of the blog on Hivency. Ouh la la, so serious ! Hihi. In fact, there was already an interview in June 2017 with the topic “4 French instapreneurs best tips” on Sparkle Inspire blog (that you can read here) but where it was just a few quotes & tips to stay motivated every day, for a creative morning routine, etc.
But this one is my first real interview with lots of questions. It’s weird. It’s in French unfortunately, but I thought of sharing it to you anyway as it’s so easy nowadays to translate with Google! If you want to check it out, I talk about how I started the adventure of blogging, the origin of the name “Plume d’Auré”, the organization and time that take an article, etc. This way : My interview on Hivency.
A nice memory to keep ! <3
But let’s move on to …
