April Favourites

Lindt strawberries and cream 

Oh my goodness… Now I’m not a big Chocolate eater and to be honest I don’t usually like anything with strawberry flavour in it. However, these chocolates are to DIE FOR! These are beautiful, creamy chocolates and perfect for a little evening treat whilst cuddled up in your pjs. If you haven’t tried these before, I seriously recommend giving them a go!

Lush Mint Julips lip scrub (here)

I only bought this last week, but it’s already a favourite of mine! I get really badly chapped lips, and I’m forever applying balms and chap stick to my lips. Not so long ago I heard about using a lip scrub, and saw lots of home recipes to make my own. After trying it a few times I decided I wanted to buy one from Lush- because any of you who shop at lush will know that everything in that place smells like heaven!

I picked this up and used it before I went for a shower, and I noticed a huge change in my lips straight away. If you’re like me and you struggle with really dry lips, I really highly recommend giving this a go.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (here)

A few weeks ago I had a free hour during work and decided to take a walk up to the shops for some fresh air. I came back with a Mascara, a Six pack of ice lollies (we have a freezer at work), and some mango juice. A random shopping list. Anyway… I have used this mascara every day since I bought it and I love it! It’s a fairly thick consistency but it doesn’t make your lashes clump too much, and it adds a lot of volume to your lashes. Being a redhead, I’m not blessed with long, black lashes- but this mascara just makes it so effortless to achieve that fluttery, feminine look.


Ted Baker Mini Treasures Body Spray (here)

I am also writing a review on the whole Mini Treasures gift set which will be up n a few days, but in the meantime I just couldn’t resist adding this to this month’s list. I was IN LOVE with the Ted Baker ‘Butterfly’ Body Spray of last year, and I was devastated when they no longer brought it out- that scent was made for my skin!

When I received Mini Treasures for Christmas, I was excited but also a little dubious, would this scent match up to my true love? Well, not quite- but it comes pretty close!

The mixture of floral, sweet scents along with orange notes is just a beautiful scent and perfect for spring. I’m not sure whether they do sell these separately, but I have put a link for the whole set above.

Happiness Planner Pencils (here)

If there is anything better than stationery with inspirational quotes on them, I would love to hear about it! These pencils are just the cutest thing in the world! They come from The Happiness Planner website (here) and are just perfect to give as a gift or just to treat yourself with! The only thing I will say is that the pencil sharpener isn’t great, but I think that’s a small sacrifice for such a lovely set!


Primark Sunglasses

I am IN LOVE with these sunglasses! I mean, they’re OMBRE! That in itself just makes them stunning! I always buy fairly cheap sunglasses, purely for the fact that I am always losing them. And who wants to lose a £20 pair of glasses when I can just buy a pair for £4 instead? I also love how chunky and big these are, I feel like I don’t suit small sunglasses, for me its go big or go home!


That’s it for this month! I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you have any of these products and what you think of them!

  1. Those pencils are so cute! I’m such a sucker for anything with a quote on it. Now I’m scouring the website looking for cute stationary 🙂 Thanks for showing that product!

    1. Same! I get far too carried away with stationery and those cute little prints with quotes on 🙂 it’s far too tempting to resist something so pretty!

  2. The pencils are my fav! So cute. How good is Primark for sunnies, I must have acquired 20 pairs since last summer and this one so far. Some of them are 1.50!

  3. Lindt Lindor dark chocolate truffles have been a favorite of mine for quite some time. The mint julep lip scrub sounds very interesting. I have never heard of such a thing before! I love the adorable uplifting quotes pencils! What a great idea!

  4. I am in love with Lush! Their products are so great that is becoming like an addiction. The mascara isn’t available where I live but it seems to be good. The pencils are a huge hit, whenever I see quote pencils I buy them because they are so pretty and it’s like a boost when you feel down. I have the Andy Warhol pencils.

    1. I love Lush too! Every time I walk past the shop I’m just so tempted to buy every single thing in there! And I love these pencils so much! I just thought they were super cute and who doesn’t love a happy quote? 🙂

  5. I didn’t know that Ted Baker had a body spray. Lovely to discover new things from one of my favorite brand (Ted Baker). I have a make-up bag from it. Great April favorites!

  6. I need to try those lindt chocolates!!!! They look so yummy and I’ve never tried that flavour before. I have a Ted Baker body spray and I love it 🙂

  7. In Primark, we can find great products for a very good price. I have been shopping all my clothes there for the past months. I guess it’s the quality and style is as great in the girls sections than it is for us.

  8. I love mint julep from Lush! Always makes my lip feel soft and ready for when I’m wanting to apply a bright lipstick. I’ll definitely want to check out the Happiness pencils for sure.

  9. These are good. My wife likes the mascara. The first time I looked at it, I honestly thought it was chocolate.
