April Lifestyle Favourites

May 06, 2016

As we're now a few days into May, its only right to tell you all about my April favourites, of which I have a few! Even though this is only my second favourites post, I'm already finding myself looking towards new things in the month, and trying to deviate from my normal daily picks in order to find something new to share. As these are 'lifestyle' favourites, there is a mix of everything that I've loved this month and have made April that little bit better for me.


Over the last couple of weeks I've been trying to wear less and less make up on a daily basis. Its really been helping my skin and has saved me a few extra minutes in the morning to lie in bed. Instead of the usual smattering of foundation, blusher, bronzer, etc. I've been letting my skin breathe. That's not to say I don't still have some spots and pores that would be better off not being shown. Benefit's Pore-fessional has been a saviour to cover my pores. It's a balm that covers them and makes them less visible. It doesn't feel greasy or heavy and is perfect for a little extra confidence.

Skin Care

I don't know about you, but here in Scotland the weather has been so temperamental. One minute its glorious sunshine, the next its a snow storm - I'm not even joking. Because of these drastic changes, I've found my hands have been getting quite dry. Aveeno has been helping me massively. Each night I've been moisturising my hands with it, and found such an improvement so quickly.

This month I've been to see a few films at the cinema, but my favourite by far was Eddie The Eagle. It's the most up lifting, feel good film I've seen in ages. I found myself literally willing Eddie on as he went for jump after jump, and couldn't keep the smile off of my face as he went to the olympics. If you get the chance, I can't recommend this film enough. It's also just kick started my next celeb obsession, as Taron Egerton is beautiful (once you see past his ginger bum fluff moustache).


The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is a great easy read. I couldn't resist picking it up after seeing the theatre show on a trip to London in February. Amazingly, the show follows the book almost by the letter, and I'm so incredibly impressed. Although probably targeted at a younger reader than me, I'm so glad I read it. It's really interesting to read a book narrated by a young boy with autism, and I found it an intriguing and entertaining read.

This month I've been totally obsessing over 5 Seconds of Summer's album Sounds Good Feels Good. I went to their Glasgow show of Sounds Live Feels Live and was blown away by how amazing they were. I haven't stopped listening and re-listening to the album since, and trying to relive each song that they performed. My favourite songs are Money, Safety Pin and Waste The Night.


I posted on instagram showing off the new addition to my wall of my Cheerz - La boite a photos. Stuck inside revising for weeks on end is slowly driving me insane, so to remind me of all the good things to come after these exams, I've displayed all my travel polariods over a wall. Looking at the photos has certainly made me wanderlust, but gives me that motivation to finish these exams. Check out my original review here.
