So I totally say this every month, but where on earth did April disappear to?! I guess with it being Easter and having some time off work, it just flew by extra quick. It’s been a good month on the whole, especially because it has been my birthday month and I’ve done plenty of fun things. So let’s see what I’ve been loving in April…
So month on month I always try to take care of my skin, but in April I was sent this duo of products from the lovely people at K2A SkincareÂ and have been trying it for the past week or so. Totally early days, but my skin is loving it so far! I think it’s because it’s very natural and doesn’t contain any nasties, so my skin is grateful for that. I’ve also been trying to guzzle as much water as poss in my pretty water bottle that I mentioned in last months faves. It’s a pretty good combo for my skin! I’ll be posting an in-depth review of these skincare products in the next few weeks.
2. Family days out
April has been a month that I’ve been able to spend time with family because of Easter, bank holidays etc and it has been so lovely! I visited Warwick Castle with the Hubster’s side of the family on Easter Sunday and we had a great time. I’ve also been able to spend quality time going out just me and the hubs, as well as afternoon tea with my momma, so I’ve had a fab few weeks really. Lots of lovely memories made which is what life is all about isn’t it?!
I’ve been totally loving the colour yellow this month! That’s absolutely nothing new for me with it being my fave colour and also one of my wedding colours, but in the past I’ve never really worn that much of it. However, I have been rocking it a lot this month! This is a snap of me on my birthday, wearing a top I picked up quite recently in a charity shop haul. I love the spring vibes, as well as the positivity the colour brings. Plus people have said it suits me too which is really lovely and gives me another excuse to wear it!
4. Easter food
I love Easter, probably because it is always around my birthday and now my wedding anniversary. Plus, I think spring time is a really lovely time of year. Easter means lots of lovely food including yummy hot cross buns! I’m a tad hot cross bun obsessed any time of year really, but I love it at Easter when they bring out limited edition flavours such as these chocolate orange mini ones I picked up from M&S. Easter also means an excessive collection of chocolate eggs in the house which is always gonna be a winner in my eyes (but not so much for my waistline oops!).
5. Sunnies and chokers
Â So the weather hasn’t been the best this April here in the UK but I’ve tried my best to get my sunnies on at any given opportunity. These are some I grabbed this month from Poppy ApparelÂ , who also have an amazing selection of chokers. If you type ‘asseenonjean’* at the checkout you can bag yourself 10% off anything on their site at the mo! I picked up this cute choker from BootsÂ of all places as I’m totally loving cute delicate chokers at the moment. Totally late to the party with the choker trend, but it shows no signs of disappearing any time soon!
So these are my top 5 for April! What were you loving this month? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time…
