Hello beautiful people
I cannot believe how quickly April FLEW by, it’s honestly surreal, I feel like yesterday I was writing my March Favourites post!
anyhoo! This month’s favourite is a little random, a couple beauty products, a couple fashion items and a couple of food items as well! I wanted to throw a few different favourites in so you guys can get to know me a little better 🙂
First up is my Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C purse, Amber bought this for me for Christmas and since the weather has gotten nicer I’ve finally been able to take it out and I LOVE it, such a lovely gift to get and such a cute bag for spring time. Since she got me the stripped one it matches pretty much anything I wear because the colours are pretty neutral, and also fits in with the nautical theme that seems to be quite on trend this season. It’s nice and small so I can fit my wallet, my phone, a pack of gum and some lip gloss, which is nice because in winter I find I carry a lot more in my purse. So this one allows me to downsize and only carry what I really need! All and all this is definitely going to be my staple handbag for spring and summer time!
Next is this necklace I picked up in Forever21, I like to wear this with a really plain shirt or dress to make it a little fancier and add a cute springy flourish, a bonus is that it was on sale I think I paid around 11$ which is a steal. The cream coloured flowers match pretty much everything and gold is nice and warm which is a nice change for me as I almost only wear silver. I normally don’t wear a lot of jewelry but I’ve been seeing these statement necklaces on people and they look so lovely and chic that I just had to get one and I’ve really been enjoying wearing it and I will definitely be picking up a few more!
As I said in my last post I absolutely love all the Marc Jacobs fragrances, so when I heard he was bringing out a new limited edition scent of the daisy and daisy eau so fresh line I just had to check it out. I went into Sephora and gave them both a sniff and fell in love with the new Daisy eau so fresh delight scent, I’ve been using this every single day since I picked it up, it was quite expensive at $89 but I used my 15% when that promotion was going on so I thought it was a good deal. It smells so fresh and light, it’s almost a mix of the regular eau so fresh and dot with a little more of a floral accent. The bottle is also adorable with all the colours and the classic daisy accents on the lid, so if you’re in the market for a new spring fragrance I would definitely recommend checking these out.
I’ve had this next product in my collection for about a year but I used it every single day in April because it is absolutely gorgeous. The Dior amber diamond powder highlighter creates the most gorgeous glow to the cheek bones, we’re talking like Victoria secret angel glow. I’ve also been using this on top of a matte bronzer as eye shadow which creates a beautiful effect, I got that tip from my favourite youtube beauty guru Tanya Burr – if you haven’t watched her videos you should check them out! She is brilliant. Amber Diamond is just a gorgeous product, a little pricey at $45 but you don’t need a lot as it is so shimmery, I’ve barely even put a dent in mine. This is such a fantastic highlighter for spring if your skin is still a little dull from the longest winter ever, I can’t say enough good things about it, it’s just incredible.
The next two favourites are food items, First is the Harvest Crunch quinoa chocolate nut medley granola bars, I think they come with fruit as well but I prefer these ones cause they have some chocolate in them haha. I find it so hard to pick granola bars in the grocery store because of the sheer amount of them; it’s a whole aisle of them! So when I saw these I pounced because quinoa is a pure protein which is great if you need some energy and it’s a nice alternative to a classic granola bar, plus they’re absolutely delicious!
Finally is the bolthouse farms Green Goodness smoothie, I find it difficult to fit the recommended amount of vegetables in my daily routine and I know that’s terrible so I wanted to try to make a conscious effort to be better about what I’m putting into my body. When I saw these at Loblaw I kind of thought “this looks like it could be either really good or really gross” but they were on sale so I picked one up and they taste GREAT. I finished the first bottle in 3 days and went back to get more! They have mango, pineapple, banana, kiwi and apple but also spinach, green tea, wheat grass, barley grass, garlic and a bunch of other things that are really good for you. I’ve been drinking one glass of this every day and I do feel like I’m doing good things for my body which puts me in a positive mood!
Well that’s it for my April favourites, let me know in the comments if you like the little random favourites I added or what posts you’d like to see from me next! Also, I’ve been pondering the idea of starting a YouTube channel, what do you guys think? Would you watch? Let me know! Don’t forget to hit the good buttons!
Until next time my loves, xoxo
