Hi everyone, I can’t believe it is the end of April already, this year is going by so quickly it’s unbelievable. This month has been super crazy, I started April with the intention of continuing my stay in Australia for the next 4 months but now I am back at home in rainy Scotland. Let’s get on with talking about my favourite things from this month.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette


I know I did a review on this palette back in February so I’m not gonna talk too in depth about this palette again. However, this is hands down one of the best quality eyeshadow palettes I own. Most of the time with eyeshadow palettes I always find that most of the shades are beautiful but there is one or two that I wouldn’t ever think about using, I don’t have that problem with this. I use literally every shade in the palette so nothing is getting wasted. Basically, this is a 10/10 eyeshadow palette which I am completely in love with.

Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE matte lipsticks, especially liquid lipsticks. Months ago I was online shopping and I bought the Too Faced Melted Metal lipstick instead of this one and I have never been so thoroughly disappointed in my life. Cut to a few months later, I order this and I’m blown away. Best lipstick I’ve ever bought and now I wouldn’t buy a liquid lipstick from any other brand. The wearability on this is insane, I put it on in the morning before breakfast and it stays on perfectly all day. When I get paid again I’m probably gonna buy one in every shade.

The Body Shop Amazonian Acai Facemask

I am a huge fan of the Body Shop, most of my skincare products are from there because I love it. I’ve never been disappointed by a product from there and this is no exception. The mask smells amazing and looks like jam which is actually really nice. Immediately after taking it off my skin felt softer, smoother and looked so much fresher. This effect carried onto the next day where I didn’t put make up on because my skin just felt so nice and in return I felt good about myself. It’s a lil bit pricey for a face mask but I don’t mind paying that much when the quality is so good. Plus, it’s cruelty free and 100% vegan which is amazing.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

I bought this a few months ago when I was working all the time, hardly sleeping and not eating a very balanced diet. Because of all that my skin was hugely suffering, I’m not someone who normally has problems with my skin but it wasn’t looking good. My skin was dry, dull and I had a lot of red blotchy patches on my face. I used this oil morning and night and within a week I noticed such a huge difference. I still have red patches on my face but they are hugely reduced. It’s now months later and this product has become one of my holy grail skincare items.

13 Reasons Why


This is the TV show EVERYONE is talking about. I binge watched this show in like two days once it first came out and have since started watching it again. There is so much hype and criticism around this show and I’m not going to discuss that in too much depth. I really enjoyed the show, it portrayed such an important message just to think about your actions and the things you say to people. It’s sad because I think with a lot of the aspects in the show it relates to a lot of high schools everywhere.

That is my 5 favourite things from April. I would love to know if you’ve tried any of the products, or watched 13 Reasons Why and what your opinion of it is. Let me know if you have any recommendations of things you think I should try as well!
