3 May 2016
April was such a lovely month as I feel like I managed to strike the balance between work, play and rest which doesn't often happen. I enjoyed a few really nice days with brands at events whilst catching up with PR and blogging friends, had some cute date nights with Will (including seeing The Jungle Book, which has been one of favourite things of 2016 so far let alone April!) and spent quality time with my family when my brother came home to visit.
I'm on track with work-related things and have been putting my all into creating lots of exciting new blog posts for you, planning upcoming videos and re-branding some of my content. I also celebrating hitting 40,000 subscribers on YouTube - thank you so much! - have finally started doing Pilates again, which was one of five of my New Year's Resolutions, and booked flights for a summer holiday with Will and friends. In April I've felt notably more content and positive, and am so excited for May. How was April for you?
My favourites of the month include the Jo Malone London Nashi Blossom Cologne, the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Cheek Palette in 'Rosy Flush', the Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 'Great Fruit', the Eylure Fleur De Force Couture Fleur Individual Lashes, the Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder & Benefit Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush, the new Soap & Glory Shower Jelly in 'Clean On Me' & 'Sugar Crush', the Phyto PhytoNeutre Clarifying Detox Shampoo and the Balanced Guru 'Scrub Me' Nice & Gritty Body Scrub (from the Nourish Beauty Box, a cruelty-free, GMO-free and paraben-free beauty box company).
This Petit Bateau Iconic Marinière Heavy Jersey Top has definitely been my most-worn item of clothing as it's a gorgeously thick material and I love how I can throw it on at the weekend with jeans, and I finally got a new pair of prescription glasses from Firmoo, the tortoiseshell #DBSN62225, which I've been wearing every day and adore so much!
If you'd like to see me talk about these products in more detail along with my lifestyle picks of the month, here's my April Favourites video on YouTube!
