Hello again! I hope you have been enjoying my posts so far? This time i’ve decided to write about my favourites for the month of April – my favourite month. Some of the things in this post have been a favourite of mine for a long time but I have only recently started using them again! I hope you enjoy this post and find some new things you might like to try!
So, my first favourite is something I loved when I was younger. The Scrunchie. I don’t know about you guys but in the late 90s/early 00’s I thought these things were super cool and they’re kinda on there way back in now and I love it. They’re just super cute and aren’t as harsh on your hair as a normal hair bobble. I wear this with a high ponytail and it makes me feel like a cheerleader (LOL). No but seriously these are super comfy to wear to keep your hair out of your face and I just love them!
Next up is something I got for my birthday. I’ve wanted a Mantra Band for quite a while but never got around to getting one and I had mentioned to my granny that I was thinking of getting one and the little cutie got me one for my birthday along with this beautiful Olivia Burton watch. Mantra Bands are so simple but they have such a nice meaning behind them. Mine says ‘What if you fly?’ coming from the quote:
‘There is freedom waiting for you on the breeze of the sky, and you ask “What if I fall?”. Oh but my darling, What if you fly?’ which is such a beautiful quote that I have decided to live by as I often find myself holding back incase I fail at things.
Something else I have been loving is part of a present I received at Christmas from a family member. I am absolutely obsessed with Bath & Body Works hand sanitisers (Pumpkin Pecan Waffles is my all time favourite). I was given the ‘Love Peace Peppermint’ Sanitiser at Christmas and I am only now getting around to using
it and I LOVE IT. It literally smells like Candy Canes and makes your hands feel so fresh. I genuinely want to bathe in it.
Please excuse the absolute state of this blusher but it is something that I recently re-discovered in my make up drawer. It is a NARS Blusher in the shade Deep Throat. It is a peachy pink shade and I think it’s just such a nice spring/summer shade. I have been using it literally every day and it’s just so pretty. Does anyone else notice how messy the NARS packaging gets? Mine always looks so grubby no matter how clean I keep it 😦 I would highly recommend this blusher though and NARS in general.
This perfume is actually a permanent favourite of mine and it is just such a classic. It is the Chloé Eau de perfum. It is such a fresh scent and I don’t really know how to describe it. All I know is that I really, really love it
This next one was recommended to me by a colleague and it’s actually really good. I absolutely detest painting my nails and as much as I love gel nails, they really do ruin your nails and leave them in horrible condition. This Sally Hansen Insta-Dri is so perfect if your nails chip easily and it is the perfect top coat. You just paint your nails as normal and put this on top and your nail polish lasts so much longer than usual.
This one is something that is really new to me. I have always found that because I have green/grey eyes I don’t suit black eyeliner and I have really procrastinated finding an alternative, never bothering to do anything spectacular with winged liner and little did I know how easy it would be. This L’Oreal Super Liner is a very dark brown and is absolutely perfect if you don’t suit black eyeliner. It’s also super cheap!
Oh Charlotte, can you do anything wrong? Charlotte Tilbury is one of my absolute favourite make up artists/brands and her Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Pencils are probably my favourite product. I have nearly all of the shades she has brought out in these but I have recently become obsessed with the shade Dark Pearl. It is a really nice smokey purple shade and it’s just really pretty with a nude lipstick or even a dark lipstick at night. These eyeshadow pencils are so, so easy to blend and sometimes I only use these on my eyes on their own with mascara and it just takes zero effort. 10/10 I would highly recommend these eyeshadows!
This one is a little weird but I have noticed such a difference in my teeth since I started using The Oral-B 3D White Luxe Perfection toothpaste. My mouth also feels so much fresher using this and my dentist has noticed a difference too!
A few of my other April favourites are:
- Chanel Lipstick in shade Pensive
- Fujifilm Istax Polaroid Printer
My next few favourites are music/tv related…
- Niall Horan – Slow Hands
- Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Feat. Justin Bieber – Despacito Remix
I am also loving Riverdale on Netflix at the moment and would definitely recommend it for a binge watch. It’s basically about a group of teenagers who are trying to solve who killed a guy in their school. Unfortunately it’s only just finished season one but I am already super excited for season two!
