As I sit down to write my Favourites’ post, it looks & feels more like November outside than the end of April/beginning of May! It’s 5° and raining. A lot.
Anyways, it has been a good month for new discoveries and purchases so let’s get cracking!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
Whilst technically not brand new, it was new to me this month. I bought this from a lovely lady on Depop who had only lightly use the blushes. It includes Luminous Flush, Incandescent Electra and Mood Exposure. To be honest I have barely used anything other than this palette for blushes this month, the colours are so versatile and pigmented. It’s so beautiful.
Stila ‘In the Light’ Palette
I’m really loving Stila Eyeshadows at the moment, I have developed a little collection and this is my newest find. It was reduced to half price on the Stila website so I got it for £12.50 which is a total steal! It includes beautiful shades including Kitten (which admittedly I also have in another palette but is a stunning shade) and my other favourite Sunset, which is a beautiful copper/bronze shade. You cannot go wrong with this palette, it comes with a ‘look book’ if you’re unsure what look to go for, and also a waterproof smudge eye pencil!
Radley Chelsea Bag
I accidentally bought another Radley bag. Oops.
How could I resist when I saw it in TK Maxx (and I’ve never seen Radley in TK’s before) and it was half the original price. It’s slightly smaller than my other Radley, and obviously a different colour. I love it just as much!
Marks and Spencer Per Una Rain Coat
Now clearly you can’t head into a British summer without a rain coat – that would just be silly. I am also going to be visiting places it tends to rain – Scotland, Wales and the Lake District. Therefore, this is a great investment for me. I love the contrast between the navy and the yellow, and the fact it pulls in at the waist. It’s practical and stylish, bravo M&S!
MAC Lipstick in Persistence
I may be a little late to the party, but my most recent addition to my MAC Lipstick collection is this beauty. It’s the perfect mauve with brown undertones which is a classic statement look perfect for any occasion.
Notice Board & Pins
I started a photo wall this month and as part of that I purchased this lovely notice board and push pins (from Etsy). I love pastel shades and think they grey board looks great with these polaroids.
I got these pictures printed by LaLaLab, for which I have a code for £5 off… Just download the app and enter the code at checkout: PGBUYKJ9.
So this is what I’ve been loving throughout the month of April. If you have any suggestions for May, please let me know!
