Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday
I really enjoy watching Monthly favorites on YT, it’s a great way for me to discover new products that I could potentially fall in love with
…so I thought why not start sharing some of my favorite monthly things as well. I also think this will be a great way for me to share some of the other things I love outside of hair and style.
April was a fun month, first signs of spring and great weather, cherry blossoms, birthdays, travel and I got to spend a lot more time outdoors.
It’s still a bit chilly/rainy but I’m greatful for more sunny days I did a few hauls in April so I thought this would be a great way to highlight some of the things I loved
I spoke about this in a previous post, I’ve been using this in my morning and night time skin routine to remove any residue before I go in with a deep cleanser.
I also use it one last time before I moisturize my skin, to make sure there isn’t any residue left over. I love that it simplifies my regimen by doing some of the work before my actual cleanse.
Also mentioned in a previous post, this has been my go to eyeshadow pallette this past month. I love that it’s compact and can easily fit into my purse. I also love that it has instructions at the back which shows you different looks you can create, which is great for beginners or when you’ve run out of ideas
Since it’s spring I’ve been reaching out for brighter and pink shades of lipstick. When I’m not wearing my favorite red (Ruby Woo MAC), I’ve been reaching for this Covergirl Spellbound # 325. It’s a gorgeous shade of pink, I love that it’s moisturizing and not so intense, cause sometimes I want something bright but a little understated. The packaging is also very pretty. This is something I see myself wearing more and more as we head into the summer.
You can never go wrong with pretty pink nails, this has been my favorite shade of pink for the month. It’s actually quite similar to the Covergirl Spellbound # 325 lipstick that I’ve been loving as well.
As far as outfits go, my favorite outfit for the month of April has to be this outfit I wore on my birthday.
I really love this Boat Neck Wrap Front White Sweater, from Romwe, it has gorgeous detailing and it’s really been keeping me warm as it still gets chilly sometimes. It is a little short although it’s not a crop top and I think it goes well with either high waisted pants or a high waisted skirt.
I also love this Carrie Skirt from Gina Tricot that I paired it with. The detailing for this skirt is really pretty, it looks like it’s a wrap skirt when it actually isn’t. It has such a soft fabric and the light gray color is a perfect neutral that can be worn all year round. I love that it’s a piece that can be worn in both a professional setting as well as for an evening or night out.
As far as hair goes, I’m still in love with the Sodium Bentonite Clay from Cosmetics Derigueur. I’ve been using it 2 to 3 times a week, I love the slip and the fact that a little goes a long way. It’s safe to say I’ve been converted and I don’t think I will go back to calcium bentonite clay. I also use this as a deep cleanser on my face 2 to 3 times a week as well and I love how my skin has been feeling. If you’ve missed my full review on this definitely check it out here.
Next thing that I’ve been enjoying and I’d love to share is tea I don’t drink coffee but I drink a lot of tea. I like trying out new flavours and this past month I picked up this kav orient Chai Tea Latte Mix from hemkop. It’s something I’ve been drinking a lot when I want to give myself a treat, as it does have sugar and milk which I dont usually add in my tea. It says it has Indian spices but honestly it isn’t as spicy as authentic spiced chai tea. Either way I’ve been enjoying it and it’s been my guilty pleasure this past month.
The last thing is my favorite moment/place of the month, which was my cruise trip to tallinn if you missed it, definitely check out the full post. I really enjoyed the trip I think going on a cruise is a fun and comfortable way to travel as you get entertained on your way to your destination. There is so much to do on the ship from shopping, restaurants, bars, karaoke, clubs, shows, swimming pools, massage parlours, saunas as well as entertainment for kids.
I actually know a couple who, that’s all they do for their vacations and they say they get to see way more countries in a cost effective way. So if you haven’t been, I recommend doing it at least once
Lastly, I also did a video on my YT channel if you’d like to actually see any of the things mentioned above do check it out below:
