April Favourites 2014

April 30, 2014

Hey guys, this is going to be my first favourites post. It would have been in video form if my laptop was working and I had my editing software but as I don’t at the moment it will just be on here this time.

By now, i’m sure you’re all going to be familiar with monthly favourites. Mine will be covering makeup, skincare, fragrance, a book, a drink and also my favourite person from the month.

So let jump right in shall we..??


Just one in here today and that’s the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Finish Lip Color in the shade Pink Apricot Shimmer. I love how summery this lipstick is and how smooth it feels even with the shimmer partials in. Want to know more? I wrote a blog post about it here.

Two skincare products I’m loving this month are the Temple Spa Skin Truffle which at the moment is the love of my life (blog post on it here) and the Neom Complete Bliss Hand cream which I really like as it sinks so beautifully into the skin leaving them feeling so moisturised and also smelling lovely too.

My got-to scent has been Lumiere Blanche from Olfactive Studio. I love the milky-ness and depth to it and how beautifully rich & yummy it smells and how it lingers on the skin for hours. I just wish I had a full sized bottle as I love it so much.

I’ve been loving the new-ish Nescafe Vanilla Cappuccino in the past few weeks on this month. Its creamy and sweet and I am a little obsessed with anything and everything vanilla.

I only started reading book on the 25th but I can’t put it down (only 3 chapters left). I’m literally reading it in every free second i have to myself (apart from when i’m writing on here). It so addictive!!

Carry You by Beth Thomas is a brand new book that’s not even been on sale for a week, yet so many people are already in love with it (me included).

Beth tragically lost her mum to cancer at the age of 33 which has lad to her writing ‘Carry You’, a story about Daisy, a women who lost her mother to cancer and is so devastated that she spends most of her days inside having DVD marathons with only Jaffa Cakes and Facebook as company. With the help of her best friend Abby who signs them both up to take part in the Moonwalk, Beth slowly re-joins the world and finds happiness again.
