Monthly Favourites: April

WHAT'S WITH ALL THE PINK...

It has been a little while since I have checked in with a monthly favourites, so maybe think of this as a favourites-come-roundup of a few of the new pieces I've occurred - which all happen to fall under the pastel pink/natural nudes category - an unexpected turn of wardrobe events for me. I'm not usually an advert for pink, but I've been wearing these bits all month long...

NUDE TONES

Recently I've been all about the nude nails, the barley there almost undetectable finish, and I must say the Maybelline Super Stay nail polishes have come through again! The shade 'second skin' is a beautiful light camel coloured nude which has been a constant on my nails and as always the formula has proven to be super hard wearing and the finish just as glossy as ever. I also picked up the OPI Nail Lacquer in the shade 'salmon sand', which is a little more translucent in finish and the chip resistance isn't amazing, but the pink undertone to this soft shade is still bloody beautiful.

GLOSS

This month really has been one for change so it seems and during the transition to spring I have loved a good gloss. I eased myself in with the Bourjois Sweet Kiss Gloss in '02', a light and non-sticky gloss which applies sheer to the lips and is an easy option on the days where you just want a bit of plumpness to the lips.

Then there is NYX, and I have my local Boots to thank for this purchase as we finally have a stand to hail all of their products and I happened to drop by on the launch morning - great coincidence. I honed straight in on their Butter Glosses and picked up the shades Tiramisu and Madeline. You can hardly feel these glosses on the lips, which is a huge must for me, and they are really pigmented for a full, juicy finish. Tiramisu is a pinky mauve, Madeline a richer brown, and they are both super gorgeous shades for everyday wear.

ATHLEISURE

I've always been an advocate for easy wearing, comfortable clothes, so athleisure is an amazing trend for me to work into the pieces I currently have in my wardrobe. My love of the month is most definitely the running sweat from the Adidas by Stella McCartney range - it so dreamy! I first saw this pop up on Esteé Lalondes snapchat and immediately knew I had to hunt it down. It certainly isn't what you would class as just pure gym gear, I wear it with a pair of jeans and trainers mostly, and for the occasional trip to the gym. I just think it's so awesome, so versatile, you'll have to peel this one off of me!

I am also known to love a good basic tee, and this Tipped T-shirt from ASOS is a great update on the classics. The subtle hint of mauve pink is super satisfying, and it's only £10 - it was a done deal as soon as I saw it. (it does keep coming in and out of stock so keep your eyes peeled!)


SO, THAT'S ME DONE - WHAT HAVE YOU LOVED THIS MONTH?

Unfortunately I didn't have my cameraman (AKA Adam) to help me get some shots of the tops on but I'll make sure I feature them on here soon!
