Denim Jacket: Ebay not sure on the brand

Shoes: Primark (These are quite old shoes, I brought them about 4 years ago but I totally love them and am trying to get what wear is left out of them.)
Braclets: Primark
Bag: Primark
Sunglasses: Primark

My lipstick is MAC peach blossom

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. What are your favourite things to wear this time of the year?

April Favourites!

Hello lovely people!

It is that time again where I run through my favourites from the past month. So lets jump straight into it.

My first favourite is a body lotion and it is the Garnier Body intensive 7 days nourishing lotion for normal to dry skin. I have had  real problem with my dry skin over the last few months and I
had been really struggling to find a body lotion that would actually hydrate my skin for the whole day. This body lotion is amazing, it is hypoallergenic which is perfect for my skin because a lot of products have reactions to my skin. The smell is also amazing. I love the almond smell. After using this for about a month I can really tell the difference in my skin. It feels a lot more hydrated and if I forget to apply it for a day, my skin still feels super soft and refreshed.

Next up are some face wipes. I have always been a fan of the Nivea skincare selection and decided to try the pure and natural face wipes. These wipes are free from parabens, silicones, colourants, mineral oils and alcohol and they can be used on all skin types. After using these wipes I really don't know why I was using anything else. They are so gentle on the skin and leave your skin feeling so soft. They take off all makeup, including eye makeup and they smell amazing. They are also super cheap as well, I will definitely be repurchasing.

Another skincare item is a hand cream. Like my skin my hands have been really suffering. Since being on my teaching placement you are constantly having to wash your hands andIi found that plus the strange weather we have been having recently in England, my hands were really beginning to suffer. This stuff has really helped with that. Despite smelling like baby cream this has definitely helped my hands a lot. It is a really thick moisturiser but it blends in really easily and leaves your hands feeling soft for a long time. Not the cheapest of hand creams but it works really well.

Next up is a perfume. I received a load of perfume samples from my fiancee when he brought my naked 2 palette and also from a wedding fair that I went to with my mum back in February so I have been trying to work my way through them. My favourite has definitely been Daisy by Marc Jacobs. The scent is so fresh and has been perfect for the spring and I also received loads of compliments whilst wearing it. I will definitely be buying the full size bottle.

Onto nails and this month it is a no brainer, the Maybelline super stay gel nail colour in mint for life. I have been looking for a mint nail varnish for a long time. I didn't want it to be too green or too blue, I wanted the perfect mint and I found it in this. This brand of nail varnish is amazing and definitely lasts for 7 days so I will be checking out some more colours from their range. The colour of this nail varnish has been perfect for spring and has complemented a lot of my clothing. They are also super affordable do I would recommend that you check them out.

Lastly is a lip gloss. I have already done a review on this lip gloss so I suggest you check this out but it is the Tanya Burr lipgloss in the shade Aurora. It is beautiful pink colour and is the perfect pink for spring as it gives a bit of colour but without being too over the top.

So there are my April favourites!

Let me know what you have been loving this month!
