Things That Made Us Say WOW in February



February doesn’t get much credit, but it’s actually my favourite month of the year. Firstly, it signals the ends of Dry January; secondly, it’s a whole 11 months until we have to battle through Dry January again, and finally, it’s the shortest month of the year, reminding us all that size doesn’t matter (right, lads?). So as we enter March, let’s take a look back at just some of the moments that made us say WOW in fabulous February…


THIS IS NOT A DRILL. REPEAT. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! After years of waiting, Leonardo DiCaprio has made the internet implode by winning the coveted Best Actor Oscar for his role in The Revenant. After his 30-second standing ovation from the star-studded crowd, Leo couldn’t hide how chuffed he was during his speech, in which he praised Tom Hardy and mummy and daddy DiCaprio and highlighted the seriousness of climate change. Bravo, Leo! Haven’t seen the Oscars yet? Catch up on your tablet.

2. Adele won pretty much everything at The Brit Awards

Adele walked away with four Brit awards and reminded us all why we love her so much in the process. She showed solidarity with Kesha, she ugly cried, she freaked out when Tim Peake presented her with her award from space before exclaiming “I hope you’re OK and not too hungry!”, and she did an absolutely pitch-perfect performance of ‘When We Were Young’. All hail Queen Adele. Get your music fix with Justin Bieber tickets or a trip to see a West End show!

3. Kim posted a picture of Saint West

We all know how cute North is, so Saint had a lot to live up to. Turns out Saint is just as cute, if not cuter. How can a baby be this cute? I just don’t get it. What the hell is going on with Kim and Kanye’s genetics to produce such beautiful babies? Don’t you think one cute baby is enough? Leave some cuteness for the rest of us. Damn. Why not take the Kardashian’s down a peg or two and rival North and Saint’s cuteness with these adorable bathrobes?

4. Friends kind of reunited

We’ve been begging for a Friends reunion for a long time now, and it kind of sort of happened, but there was no Chandler and it wasn’t a sitcom, but beggars can’t be choosers! Maybe this will have made them realise how much they all miss being together and how badly they want to film a one-off ‘where are they now’ episode. Right? Right?! We can dream. Show your friends how much you care with this friendship bracelet.



5. T-Swift shut down Kanye

By now you’ve probably heard about the feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, thanks to the charming lyric of Kanye’s song ‘Famous’ – “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous.” Well, believe it or not, it looks like Taylor has responded during her acceptance speech at The Grammy Awards for ‘Album of the Year’, where she said the following:

“There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame, but if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday,  when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know that it was you.”

YAAAAAS Taylor! Looks like she took advantage of this emotional intelligence course. Kanye, you might want to think about doing the same…
