April 2015 Favourites

Friday, 8 May 2015

Its that time of the month again!

No not thatttt time of the month!

Favourites timeee

Below are my favourites for April


I swear this year is flying by!

The first is a favourite for about the past year - rather than just for this month, but I had a bit of a break from it to try and use up some other perfumes and now I'm back with my faveee

Jo Malone - Peony and Blush Suede


Jo Malone perfumes just smell so expensive and delicious. This one is perfect for spring and summer as its floral but not over powering.

They are pricey though, this big bottle will set you back £82


Fortunately I got mine as a birthday present!


My next fave is coconut oil


If you haven't read my coconut oil uses blog check it out below:


I've been using it to remove my makeup, to moisturise, for oil pulling and for cooking with this month.

I got mine from Holland and Barratt


It retails for £15 but I got it on sale for half that price so keep an eye out for Holland and Barratt sales!


My next favourite is this L'Oreal True Match Powder


I've been using it in my T Zone to stop getting oily and also in place of foundation for days when I want to less makeup.

It provides quite a lot of coverage for a powder and I just use concealer underneath it and bronzer on top 


It has this handy mirror underneath which I like as I can use it on the go


This retails for about £8 and I have the colour Golden Beige




My next favourite is a Rimmel Exaggerate lip pencil in the colour addiction.

I accidentally deleted my zoomed in picture :(

but this is it on my lips:




Its a wind up liner (which I prefer as you don't need a sharpener) and its really creamy.

Perfect KJ colour



Next is an oldie but a goodie

Just look at that packaging!


This is the Soleil Tan De Chanel.

As you can see (sorry it looks so nasty) this is well loved


VERY well loved I'm upset I'm going to have to get a new one soon.

I use this for cream contouring and it adds the perfect amount of colour.

If you want a walk through of how I use it - see below:


It retails for £32 but lasts a long time


My final beauty favourite is this nail varnish from Sephora


It's in the colour Traffic-Stopper Copper

Apologies for the blurry pic

This is how I've been wearing it this month



My final item isn't makeup or beauty or anything like that but it has definitely been a favourite this month - I've used it everyday

My NutriBullet


I just love it. I worried that it wouldn't be worth the money (£99) but I do think it is.
I'm using it every morning and its means the amount of vegetables I've been eating has doubled and the carbs I've been eating has reduced dramatically.

At the moment I have half a large nutribullet for breakfast, then the other half of it at about 11.30
A salad for lunch then a rivita with peanut butter at 3ish.
Finally half a small nutribullet at about 6pm before I go to the gym
The other half at about 8.30pm when I'm done in the gym 
And then dinner is meat and vegetables

I have less than a month until Vegas so am trying really hard to be good!

I don't think I've mentioned on my blog that I've joined the gym but I have and surprisingly I'm enjoying it!



Anyway back to favourites.

I thought I'd add in my favourite songs of the month to mix things up too and then I promise we're done:

Going out
OMI - Cheerleader
Skrillex and Diplo present Jack U with Justin Beiber - Where Are You Now
Chris Brown and Tyga - Ayo
Nicki Minaj ft Drake and Lil Wayne - Truffle Butter
Fetty Wap - Trap Queen


Old school:
Shania Twain - Up
Shania Twain - Any Man of Mine
Alanis Morissette - You Oughta Know


Fave salsa song:
Quantic - Mi Swing Es Tropical 


Fave country songs:
Zac Brown Band - Homegrown
Frankie Ballard - Sunshine & Whisky


I could go on but I'll stop myself - the above songs are what I've been listening on Spotify this month and I think there is a bit of a mix!!


Let me know in the comments below whether you like me putting songs in my favourites or whether there is anything else you'd like me to do like accessories or fashion (not that I am fashionable at all!)
