April Favourites 2017

This month has absolutely flown by tbh. I’ve barely had time to catch my breath and suddenly, it’s May! *cue loads of gif about N*Sync and Justin Timberlake on Twitter* (For reference, they sing called “It’s Gunna Be Me” but it sounds like they’re singing “it’s gunna be May” for anyone who’s totally confused!!)

Anyhoo, now that I’ve probably confused you all, lets get down to the things that have made my faves list in April โ™ฅ


L’Oreal detox clay mask – This has been on my list to buy for ages, but it’s always been out of stock in my local Boots ๐Ÿ™ Luckily I found it in another store and decided to snap it up quickly! I’m so glad I did as it’s been leaving my face feeling super soft and smooth ๐Ÿ™‚ It contains 3 pure clays and charcoal which helps to draw out impurities in the skin whilst leaving it looking clarified. Apparently!

Smashbox Cover Eye Shot palette in Ablaze – I’ve only had this product a couple of weeks, but I can’t stop wearing it! I can’t believe I’ve never owned a palette with a red shade before; it’s a game-changer!! The only slight downside to this product is the amount of fallout, but I can forgive that because LOOK AT IT!!!

NYX lipstick in Cannes – Recently rediscovered in my make-up bag, I’ve been loving this liquid lipstick to death. Seriously, I think it’s about to run out ๐Ÿ™ It’s such a lovely shade and it’s fantastic for a casual day look but also goes well with a dressed up evening look too. I’m definitely going to have to repurchase this shade pronto!!

Leighton Denny nail varnishes in Get Your Cรดte and Zero Gravity* – I absolutely love these colours and the fact that they dry incredibly fast! I’ve been wearing them constantly since I got them and they’ve taken ages to start chipping!


H&M Unisex dungarees – Considering I’ve just written an entire post about my love for these dungarees, it was kinda safe to assume that I’d be adding them in here!! They’re perfect for days out and slobbing around the house in. I wish I’d ordered another pair!!

New Look star trainers – So these were the last ones in my size in the shop and they were a little scuffed at the front, but the manager offered a 25% discount so I couldn’t really resist them! These beauts ended up costing me ยฃ13; bargain!! They’re so comfy to wear and I love them. even if they do get dirty really easily!


Easter chocolate – I got so lucky this year as not only did J buy me some, but I also got given some at work as well. I’ve eaten my way through a lot of it but I still have a fair amount left ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m now eating the rest slowly so it lasts for ages ๐Ÿ˜€


Spending time with my parents – They live over on the Isle of Wight so since I moved to Brighton, I usually see them about 4 times a year. This year though, I’m trying harderย to make more time to see them and we’ve ended up meeting in Portsmouth for lunch every couple of months as it’s kinda in between us!!
