April faves


Hey guys!
So I realised that I haven't done an actually monthly favourites post since like my november edition.. so that's a pretty long time. So today I thought I would share with you all the things I have been loving in April.. 

1. Water - Ok so this is a pretty random one to include but like 85% of my fluid intake in April was either water (plain or flavoured) or was squash (containing water). It even got to days where I just fancied water which for me is pretty odd. I also found that when I went out for meals I didn't really enjoy drinking a fizzy drink. Another great thing I noticed was that my skin was looking better in April.

2. Makeup Brushes - There has been two brushes that I have been loving this month both of which I've ordered from sets on Amazon. The first being from a set that I've already reviewed (here) and mainly the been loving the powder brush. I think i've been loving this brush so much because it picks up the product so well.. that's all. The second is again from an Amazon cheap brush set which I'm still yet to review and it's the mascara wand brush. Now this is quite odd and this wouldn't of been in my favourites hadn't my eyelashes been playing up when putting mascara on. For a definite good week or so my mascara was just not going right, so I found this helpful to get my lashes to separate.

3. Lipstick - This month I have been drifting away from my MAC lipsticks and found myself using the ELF Lipsticks and especially nostalgic and fantasy but i'm not going to ramble on about these, if you want to know more i've reviewed them here.

4. Skin Care - This month I have been slacking with my skincare. I really want to get into a proper routine but it's definitely been hard since I've been getting back from the uni library pretty late and I don't want to do a proper routine, I just want to sleep.  I'm still debating whether I prefer the camomile cleansing balm or the cleansing oil, but this has been handy for when I've been away and is great at taking off your makeup.

5. Samples - Now this has definitely been my favourite thing this month. I have loved either receiving a sample or using it. I have been loving the Nina - Nina Ricci perfume sample. This has been so handy for when i've been away (twice during april). It's just so easy to pack and the smell is just delicious. I love it. The second sample I've been loving is Roller Lash by Benefit no other reason other than it's a good mascara. The third is the Burberry kisses lipstick sample and the main reason being is that it is super cute as it's a baby lipstick (well done Burberry for the sample packaging). Another couple of reasons I have loved this is due to the shade (nude beige) and it's so handy to throw into my uni bag.

6. Hair care - I have two items here: the first the wet brush and the herbal essences shampoo and conditioner. I just feel like I have used the wet brush a lot since I got it. I don't know if this is because i've lost my new tangle teezer which i'm really unhappy about, or because i've generally been brushing my hair more. Anyhow I have found this to have better benefits like using it with a hair dryer and not so like aggressive as a tangle teezer, if that makes sense.  Now normally I don't really think about my shampoo and conditioner being really good but I since using the herbal essences bee strong shampoo and conditioner my hair has just been healthier, stronger, feels soft not brittle even days after and less greasy. So it's a winner for me although i'm not a major fan of the honey scent.

7. Eyes - Well I seem to have been obsessed with using my mac paint pot in painterly. It is such a nice base colour and really makes my eye lid smoother. & for me being lazy with silly steps like this to normally include I find that i'm doing it pretty much every time I do my makeup. 

8. Others - A few other things i've been loving is walks. I'm really lazy so for me to love walks is a bit like huh, are you alright? but yeah i've got my friends to come on walks with me and it's just been a nice way to catch up without just sitting around gaining calories. The next thing is James Bay let it go and best fake smile songs. I constantly have these in my head. Lastly is Stalker (TV Show) i'm just into this thriller crime show, basically any crime show - NCIS, Hawaii Five-0, The blacklist and loads more. Oh and anything copper!

That's it for this monthly favourites. Seems like a lengthy one.

Let me know what you were loving in April...
speak soon, han xo

  7. I'm still loving my roller lash sample, I'm worried that it's going to run out soon. I haven't had a chance to try any ELF makeup yet and I've heard that they're stopping shipping to the UK:(
