April Favourites

I feel like a bear that slept throughout Winter and just woke up. I mean, how come it`s May? One more month and it`s Summer, how crazy is that? While I am very excited for August to come because I am going on a holiday in Portugal and then I have to go to my best friend`s wedding, I also want time to stop. Mixed emotions here! Anyway, let`s talk about April for a second and cherish all the good memories. I had a wonderful Easter with family and friends, I finally managed to go to my friends concerts, I went back to work. Lots of things to be grateful for! I also loved lots of beauty items and other bits, so I will have 2 sections: beauty and lifestyle.

BEAUTY:

April was all about a fresh makeup, I definitely went for the less is more approach. My highlighter of choice was from Seventeen, their Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter (review here). This is so easy to use and leaves your skin glowing and healthier looking. I also used blush almost daily, to give my pale skin a bit of colour and definition. I absolutely love Galactic from W7, the most flattering peach blush I have ever tried. (find it here) This month I stayed away from my neutral eye shadows and instead I went for purple. If you read my review, then you know the Spring Break palette from MUA is a hit and miss. The lighter colours don`t really work for me, but that purple colour is insane. I may dislike some shades, but this one makes up for it and that`s why it`s in my favourites. Pretty weird to include a palette just for a shade, but moving on.

In terms of skincare, I did not do much. Next month I am changing my Winter products for the Summer ones, so stay tuned for a skincare routine. Two products I loved this month, though, were the Vitamin E face cream from The Body Shop and The Blackhead Killer Face Masks. My skin is quite dry lately so that cream was just the remedy I needed. It left my face smooth and less red and itchy. Also, I am a sucker for a good face mask and the Blackhead Killer checks all my requirements. You can see my full review here.

LIFESTYLE:
MUSIC:
I am obsessed with Hozier at the moment, I listen to the debut album all day long. My favourite songs are:

TV SHOWS:
Everyone says on the IMDb board that it might get another season or a reboot, which makes me super excited. This is one of my all time favourite TV Shows, it had such a good story and the actors were phenomenal. In case of another season, I decided to re-watch it, to remember all the details.

MOVIES:
Out of all, this was the best, in my opinion. I won`t lie, I cried a bit. R.I.P. Paul Walker!


P.S. Don`t forget about my Giveaway!
