Monthly Roundup: April

Sunday, 30 April 2017

April has got to be one of the quickest months so far this year for me. The end of March saw the end of my second semester at uni so lucky for me I've spent 4 weeks at home, my favourite place to be! I've been working quite a lot but I'm not going to be paid until May which is a pain but will be SO nice having a big wedge of dollar put in the bank ready for Summer! Other than that, I've been busy writing essays and spending time with Jamie, friends and family.

The pink wall

Friday, 28 April 2017

A couple of weekends ago Jamie and I headed to a local seaside town Aldeburgh aka blogger heaven. Aesthetics were on point.. so many adorable pastel coloured mix and match cottages and houses! I feel like I've finally made it in the blogging world with this classic pink wall pic - totes channelling those Hannah Gale instagram vibes...

Review: The M Botanicals Exfoliating Bamboo Cleanser

Tuesday, 25 April 2017

A few weeks back I was kindly gifted the Exfoliating Bamboo Cleanser from M Botanicals. The cleanser claims to Revive tired and dull skin  - Bamboo and clay mechanically exfoliate while strong plant based actives of Copaiba balsam, Acai and Andiroba help the skins ability to protect itself against hormonal breakouts. Natural fruit acids exfoliate and unclog pores bringing about a revived and smooth complexion.

The summer jumspuit

Friday, 21 April 2017

This is the perfect spring/summer jumpsuit! I can feel jumpsuits soon becoming a wardrobe staple of mine, especially those that are as comfy and easy to wear as this one.

Review: Anastasia Dipbrow Promade

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

I know I'm a bit late to the party now, but today I'm reviewing the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Promade. I really have fallen in love with it since getting it last year and use it daily without fail - I couldn't help but feel it needed a blog post all of it's own!

She is the river flowing Orwell

Saturday, 15 April 2017

Yes that title is from Ed Sheerans song, and yes that is the river Orwell. Yup I'm from the same county as Ed. #claimtofame!! Jokes aside, I loved shooting here - finding new locations is something I'm really loving right now. It's amazing how many beautiful places are just around the corner!

Easter at Lush

Thursday, 13 April 2017

 Easter is here and I was determined to get into the spirit and get an easter themed post out somehow! A couple of weeks back mum and I popped over to colchester for a bit of a shop and I picked up these new bath bomb goodies from the Lush easter range.

Summer Memories with Printiki*

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

The lovely people at printiki offered to send me some prints of my choice a few weeks back. With all the sun this month, and Jamie and I finally booking this years holiday (if you have any recommendations for things to do in Gran Canaria, let me know!) I thought it was about time I got last years holiday adventures printed!

By the seaside

Friday, 7 April 2017

We've been having the most beautiful weather recently!! Since coming home for my easter break I've been stuck indoors either writing essays or working so when I had a couple of days off last week I was so excited to get outside and enjoy a bit of the sun.

Wishlist: Gingham

Wednesday, 5 April 2017

Spring's trends are well underway, and gingham is most certainly in this year! Just a few days ago I picked up the cutest cut-out shoulder top from Primark in a gingham print, and I'm already pondering on the web for more pieces to add to my collection..

Book Review: After You by Jojo Moyes

Tuesday, 4 April 2017

Another book review, I am a bit slow on getting this up - this was my second read of the year and I'm now on my fourth - I've kept up with the 'book a month' thing really well so far! Now I did feel like a shame to the reading community when I read this, as it is the sequel to Me Before You which I haven't actually read, I've only seen the film instead (woops). I loved the film though so definitely need to pick up the book, even if I do know the ending!
