April Favourites

April has been such a lovely month, the weathers mostly been great and I've seen loads of my family which is always nice. On the blog front I've been pretty naughty and haven't posted much this month which has been a mixture of me being busy and being super lazy but I'm kicking my butt back into action so hopefully, the posts will keep rolling out!

Beauty-wise this month I've been loving quite a few products but I've narrowed it down to three that have particularly shone for me. First of all, there's the Tom Ford cream colour for eyes in the shade 02 Guilt. Guilt is a gorgeous light shimmery gold which is so effortlessly easy to apply. I've been loving just wearing this with some mascara during the day as it really looks so pretty. I've also been loving the MAC Prep + Prime transparent finishing powder, as I have quite dull, dry skin I always stick to using a very fine powder that won't cake my skin and accentuate any dry patches. This powder works so well for me so I definitely think I'll be repurchasing this once it runs out! The last of the three is my beloved MAC Soft + Gentle Skin Mineralize finish, this is really an all time favourite but I can say that I've worn it every day this month so I thought I would squeeze it in.  I've also been using it as an eyeshadow and to illuminate my brow bone which I don't normally do but it looks really good.

My favourite fashion piece of the month would have to be my new Dorothy Perkins Orange heels. Now I'm mainly a monochrome girl but one colour I also allow in my wardrobe would have to be orange. I'm so in love with these shoes, they're so comfy and are the perfect height! I also think they were quite a bargain, I brought them instore for £25 but they're now online for £22.50, which I personally feel is a really great price.

Book-wise I started reading the vampire academy books this month and I've got to say I think they're great. I hate to admit it but I love fantasy books with a love story, I can't help it they're just so easy to read and become immersed in. I've read all six books in the series this month, so I've got through them pretty quickly! If you know of any other good books/series to read let me know cause I need to start a new one soon!

Hope you've had a lovely April!
