April Favourites

This month has gone quick! i'm sure i say this every month bt the time for a monthly favourites is always around the corner :)

I think May is an odd month :S but as long as it brings some sun with it, i'll be happy!

I'm going to start with my absolute favourite: Natural Nymph Mineral Lipstick by ELF. A few of this months favourites are elf after my large haul a few weeks ago ;)It's creamy and doesn't dry out your lips and i'm really getting into nude colours at the moment :)

Then, Olay complete care daily UV cream. Now the sun's returned :), its really important to have an SPF. The cream is for normal/dry skin whereas i would say mine is more oily/normal but it is definately not making my skin more oily :)

I tried gel eyeliner for the first time this month and i'm impressed :) Elf's has a really good consistency and i have been using the small smudge brush to apply it.

Lush's BIG shampoo is interesting :) It doesn't taste very nice :( - yess - i got it in my mouth :( buttt it makes my hair really shiny after i have washed out all the grains in it. The consistency is really bitty so it's a bit hard to wash the product out but definately worth the effort :)

Then, Lacoste Touch of Pink Perfume. Everyone knows this perfume! I used to wear it everyday and then i kind of became immune to its sceen but after switching up my perfumes now, i can smell it again :)

No.7 Eyeliner in Turquoise (2) - this has great staying power and works really nicely for a neutral colour pop!

Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss. I pulled the shade label off so i don't know what colour ir is but, its like a glittery hot pink. It stays on for ages, longer then any lipgloss i can think of :)

So, thats it for another month ...



  1. Lovely April Faves!:D

    ...and everything girly under the sun!

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
