Monthly Lifestyle Favourites: April!


It's that time again, where I pull together a selection of the lifestyle picks that I have been enjoying throughout the month and pop them into a chatty Monthly Favourites. Here is Aprils helping:

For the first couple of weeks of the month I was held up in bed with a virus, and the first thing to suffer (other than my sinuses) was my skin. It was dry around my nose from chronic blowing (excuse the TMI) and generally lacked any life. This Neals Yard balm completely saved my skin and gave my skin the hydration and moisture it needed so badly! There are so many uses for this balm, I've typed a post all about it if you're interested.

I'm not in possession of statement, shapely brows, but I'm always trying in vain to make the best of them. I hadn't tried a brow gel until this L'oreal offering and after using this for a few weeks, I'm not quite sure why! I love that this is a coloured formulae (quite a spot on match to my natural shade) and not just a clear setting gel. The fibres on the brush help fill things out a bit and by the days end my brows are still there - something I've rarely experienced. I tend to use this daily on it's own, or over the top of pencilled in brows on a special occasion - aha! 

This little gem was in my My Little Superbox delivery, a cream lip and cheek hybrid product from their My Little Beauty range. As soon as I swatched it I knew it was such a 'me' shade, yet I didn't have anything like this in my collection?! A mix of peachy pink tonnes,  pop a little bit onto the back of my hand, dab on a stippling brush and pop onto my cheeks. The formulae has fab staying power, but it's a little on the powdery side - so I'm yet to use it on my lips. 

Nothing major has gone on in terms of colour or even the cut, dramatically. But, I switched my hair dresser last month and she done an absolute blinder of a job. I'm always daring to go shorter with my hair (despite my full moon face) and I'm trying to put more effort into styling, and I was just super pleased with the results. A blunt cut that will not doubt get shorter as we head into summer. If you're in the Norwich area and in need of some hair maintenance, check out Katie at The Egg Salon!

#SLBloggerBash
Despite the earlier sickness, I managed to haul my arse to London for the #SLBloggerBash. An event held by the lovely Scarlett, with brands such as Urban Outfitters taking the floor and holding various competitions. But it was also an opportunity for me to meat up with a few babes I'd been chatting to over Twitter - shout out to Ally, Lauren, Saida & Kristina - as well as mingle with a few new faces (even though I spent most of the day sniffling and inhailing olbas oil - major bummer). 

Let me know if you like these kinds of posts on ES & I'll keep 'em coming!
