Monthly Favourites | April






Spring has sprung and the sun shining in the garden motivated me to throw my hair up, grab the camera and sort my favourites for this month out. The majority of these products were purchased from the end of March to the middle of April… apart from the eye crayon I have fell in love with again. After splurging rather a lot last month I ended up with some rather beautiful products in my hands…


First off, a perfume made for spring/summer – the most perfect scent ever. Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey… I have always swooned over Jo Malone perfumes my sister has and on a visit to Selfridges I smelled hundreds (not literally- I don’t think my nose could take it) and came away with this captivating cologne. From the first sprits you can really pick up the nectarine, it then settles into the skin revealing the sweet honey. One to just make you go ‘mmm’ each time it’s sprayed.
I can’t get enough moisture into my skin, night time is my favourite part of the day when I can layer up the products to work their magic whilst I get my beauty sleep. Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil is my latest addition to the night regime and I am very much enjoying reaping the rewards of it. It’s a natural face oil containing 99.8% natural organic ingredients including fruit & seed oils. I have very sensitive skin so I was hesitant at first but it has reduced spot scarring, moisturised and brightened up my face.
Topshop eye crayon in Marble is a lovely slightly rose gold-esk creamy colour which blends on to the eye like a dream, however it does slightly gather in the crease. The colour can take you from day to night; I like to duo it up with a little brown eye shadow above my lash line. If all the Topshop crayons are as pigmented as this then I defiantly need to get my hands on more of these!
A beauty bloggers favourite nail varnish and a very happy me with this on my nails. Essie – Ballet Slippers is must have neutral and after 3-4 coats leaves my nails looking cute and sophisticated. It also makes a perfect base colour for a gold glitter varnish. There’s not much to say on this when it has been blogged about to death.
Prepare yourself; it’s my beloved Molton Brown Paradisiac Pink Pepperpodthe three perfect P’s. Whenever I shower with this and cover my body in the body lotion I feel like me… I like to think of this as my signature smell. I would describe the smell as feminine, exotic, spicy and aromatic which reawakens you- a smell which you can use all year round. Really, it is paradise.
Sitting with my favourites on the bed makes me very pleased with myself, hopefully next months favourites will be just as satisfying. I hope you have enjoyed having a nosey around my favourite and let me know what your favourites are this month!
