Favourite Folk - April Edition

It's that time of month again, I can't believe I've stuck to a post series for 4 months in a row, check me out! I've followed sooooo many new blogs this month and instead of repeating my big favourites like I have done for the last few months, I'm going to write about a few of the new blogs I've been loving. Let's get started shall we? 

Okay so I said I wasn't repeating people, but I just can't go a month without mentioning my best friend. This is still the first blog I go to on Bloglovin each morning and I always, always adore whatever she posts about. This month she hit 200 followers (I feel like a proud mother) and my favourite posts have been her Spring Tag and her MAC Wish List which has made me want to run into MAC and purchase everything. Keep it up beautiful and here's to hitting 300 followers next month!

miamoo Travel Goodies*

A few weeks ago Miamoo posted a tweet asking for bloggers to review their Travel Goodies set, after reading up that it was a skincare set, I jumped at the chance. About a week ago, I received my set and starting using it straight away. I was a bit worried at first because I think it's a product set that mothers use on their children, but after a bit more research I realised any age and any skin type can use it, which is a brilliant start for a product. 

I did actually take my own photo of the set before I unpacked it, but we've had a new PC and I've misplaced my camera memory card (so, so annoyed) so I stole this off miamoo's website. I'm really sorry for the crappy quality. And for the rest of the photos.

Okay, so the miamoo travel set, as I've said, is suitable for all the family and has almost 100% natural ingredients (second bonus). This is perfect for going on little weekend breaks, or even a weeks holiday as I've used the products a few times now and there's still plenty left!

Instagram // 01

As we speak, (or I speak) (or write, technically) I am off to the Hit The Deck festival in Nottingham with Bear and a few friends to see a few bands, including my one true love, The Summer Set - more on this next Sunday! 

I know I did a 'life-post' on Monday and I'm sorry to bore you with another, but I'm going to start a new series of Instagram posts! For those of you that follow me, you'll know I'm involved in lambing at the moment so there's been a lot of 'Lamb Spam' as I like to call it - but I just thought I'd show you the last couple of weeks in pictures.

Meadowhall Haul // 02

For the second time in the space of a few weeks, I ventured to Meadowhall with the best one Sian and did too much damage to my bank card. In all fairness, I have spent barely anything since my last haul and so me and Sian decided we'd have a blowout. And boy, did we. It was a lovely, relaxing day which I really needed just before the 4 weeks of hell began on Monday. We shopped for hours and finished off the day in TGIF - perfect or what? Here's what I brought;

An Update

Hello my little munchkins;

It's been a while since my last 'life-related' post and so I thought I'd spend today giving you an update into whats happening in my not-so-exciting life. I say not-so-exciting but actually, a lot has happened recently that I haven't bothered sharing with you and we all know sharing is caring, right? So let's get started. 

I mentioned a few posts back that I was having my driving test, which I was so nervous about, especially when I got to the test centre and realised I'd forgotten my glasses. Excellent. Anyway, you'll be pleased to know (or concerned) that I passed! With only 3 minors! It's honestly one of the most amazing feelings I have ever experienced, knowing that I've finally done it and I'm allowed on the roads unassisted! I have never been so proud of myself! So that's one bit of news that I forgot to mention.

theBALM Nude'tude Palette

Morning my little sugarplums,

I have a review for you today. Oh look, I'm getting good at doing these! A few weeks ago I used my Birchbox points to purchase this beauty, that I have been wanting for so long.

Soap and Glory Wish List

Well hello there;

I recently had a mini Soap and Glory splurge and brought No Clogs Allowed and One Heck of a Blot. I have fallen in love with both of these products and it has me want more, more, more. Now, I'm not a Soap and Glory newbie, but I'm certainly no expert. I haven't really reached out for new products, so I thought I'd have a look on their website and let you guys know what I'm lusting after! 

1) Sugar Crush Body Buttercream - £10.50

I adore the Sugar Crush scent (as you can probably tell from the wish list) and this sounds divine. I'm pretty sure it's just Righteous Butter but with a different scent, which is fine by me as I love that product too! 

2) Sugar Crush Body Scrub - £8.00

I'm a little confused as to why this is £2 cheaper than the buttercream when they're both the same amount of product? Who knows. But anyway, I have used this before, I got it for Christmas a few years ago and I love, love, love it. So this is always going to be on my wish list.

3) Sugar Crush Body Wash - £6.50

I see a theme here, do you? The last Sugar Crush product on the list, I thought it'd be nice to add this in seeing as I want everything else from that line. Who doesn't want to smell like sugar and limes? Let's be honest. 

4) For Daily Use Face Wash - £9.00

I think this product is a little over priced for a face wash, so it must be good, right? Hmm. This has the Peaches and GoJuice scent which I have smelt once before I think? Is it the same scent as Peaches and Cream? I dunno, but I need a new face wash. This has pink bits in it I think, so what else do I need from a face wash?

5) Archery Eyebrow Pencil - £10.00

I've been wanting a new eyebrow pencil for ages now because mine is shit :) I've had my eye on this for ages so this will probably be my next S&G purchase. Has anyone used this? Let me know if it's good!

So there you have it, a little mini S&G wish list. Have any of you guys used these products? What did you think to them? 

What's on your S&G wish list?

The Spring Tag

My lovely friend Megan over at Seek My Scribbles nominated me to do the Spring Tag, which I thought was lovely of her and seeing as I'm going with the Spring theme at the moment, I thought it was a perfect idea! Plus it's Sunday, which means, life post day! Here we go;

Skincare // 01

Good morning!

The other day I was looking at myself in the mirror, as you do and I realised, my skin is in the best condition it has ever been. Since getting myself into a skincare routine (which I whole-heartedly recommend) it's like I have a new face. No spots, no dry skin (only occasionally) nothing! So I thought I'd spend today's post talking about how my skin has come to this. Now this is just what my routine is ATM, I do change it up a bit because I like to try new products.

Currently // 03

Reading // Bobbi Brown's Make-up Manual - I got this for my birthday off of a friend of mine and I literally haven't put it down. I now want to own every single item from that book, not caring how it affects my bank balance. I'm rubbish at make-up, yet I have a beauty blog (what on Earth it wrong with me?) but this is so inspiring and as most of the book is for beginners, it is just what I need! Amazon

Listening to // Jason Derulo, Taylor Swift, Christina Perri & Katy Perry - Cannot get enough of these guys! Well, I can never get enough of Taylor Swift, she is of course, my idol. But the other 3 are releasing some excellent songs at the moment. I love Dark Horse, Humans and Stupid Love - they will soon be on my iPhone so I can have them on constant repeat! 

Thinking about // Finishing Uni - I finish Uni on the 6 May and I cannot wait. However, I have so much work to get done in the next few weeks that the finish line seems further away than it ever has. I need to sit myself down, write up a plan and stick to it. But how hard is it to stick to something that you hate doing?! I need a miracle. 

Loving // Decorating and chocolate - I got enough chocolate for my birthday to last me forever (a week). Lindt, Cadburys, Nestle and Galaxy. I enjoy surrounding myself chocolate and rolling around in it (not) (maybe). I'm also loving decorating the spare bedroom. It's coming along nicely, the walls are painted and the wardrobes are up. We're just waiting on a sofa bed and my vanity table now!

Watching // Desperate Housewives, My Mad Fat Diary - Again, Desperate Housewives. I think I'm on Season 5 now, just starting. It's still my favourite programme of all time and I'm in love with every single character. It will never bore me. Also, My Mad Fat Diary is back! It's back since the beginning of March but still, I adore it. I am way too in love with Nico Mirallegro, he is to die for. Sorry Bear.

Looking forward to // This month I'm going to Hit The Deck with Bear and a few others, I've never been before, but I'm really looking forward to it! A day of friends, cheap beer and some of my favourite bands! What out Summer Set, I'm coming for you! Also this month, wait for it - MCBUSTED. Damn I am excited. Sian and I will be seeing these boys on 29th April and I way too excited. Two of my favourite bands, under one roof, together, as one, near me, in the same room. Woah.

What are your currents?
