Hello my lovelies, how are you? I hope you’re having a great day. April has finally come to an end, so today I’ll show you everything I’ve been loving this past month, plus some really fun releases to look forward during may. Enjoy! ♡♡
So firstly, we have a lip balm. This one is called soft rose, and it’s quite nice at keeping your lips soft, but what I love about it is how it leaves a stunning pinky sheen on the lips. It’s perfect on the go, you can apply it without a mirror and the packaging is adorable. This is one of those affordable lippies I like to keep in my bag during spring, it’s really cute and girly, plus it keeps your lips soft!
Next, I loved this past month was the DKNY sweet delicious pink macaroon perfume. To be honest, this isn’t the best scent I’ve tried, but it’s really fun and happy for the spring. There are fruity notes, such as nectarine, bergamont and pomegranate, a hint of floral (rose) and a hint of sweetness (marzipan). This mix of scents actually works out really well, very flirty and fun. I wouldn’t call it my favorite out of my collection, but it’s nice for the season and I’ve been wearing it a lot!
During April, I used this body lotion so much… it’s empty now! This is the Dove hydro nourishment lotion, and what I love about it is how lightweight the texture is, hence the name. It’s great if you have classes early in the morning but you still want to moisturize your body, because it absorbs so quickly, so you don’t have to wait for it to dry. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend, specially because it’s so cheap!
Remember last month I showed you the L’oreal Triple Active makeup removing cleanser, from L’oreal Paris? This month I purchased the toner from the same line, and I’m obsessed! It has a very light, soothing fragrance and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean after a long day. Also, it removes any makeup you might still have left on your skin. And, again, it’s really affordable. This is the kind of product you would pay 20 bucks for at sephora, but for a lot cheaper! I have to say L’oreal has impressed me a lot these past months… I love their makeup and haircare, and now I found out this awesome skincare line!
Finally, for haircare, I really enjoyed this shampoo. It’s the Petit Marsellais Shine shampoo with Royal Gelee. The first couple times I used it I loved the results, but as I kept using it, it made my hair fall limp. Then, I checked the ingredients, and that’s when I saw the royal gelee… it was a protein shampoo! Protein shampoos are meant to be used like hair masks/ deep conditioners, about once a week, to give your hair a little help and make it shiny and soft. During April, I started using it once or twice a week, and it worked amazingly! It lathers up really well and smells really luxurious and expensive, but it’s actually really affordable! I highly recommend this, just keep in mind that you shouldn’t use it every single wash!
This past month, I’ve been obsessed with so many youtubers…
SHAAANXO- If you haven’t heard of Shannon before, you have to check her out. I’m completely obsessed with her. She’s so pretty and amazing with makeup, plus she’s really creative! She posts every other day, and every single time I watch her, she surprises me with a new, completely original video. She does a lot of makeup tutorials and get ready with me’s, but they’re always really different and fun to watch. Watching her videos always gives me so many great ideas for new looks!
DANI AUSTIN2- The moment I discovered dani, I just wanted to watch all her videos. She’s so fun and bubbly, she has the best personality, plus she’s absolutely stunning and has the most amazing body ever (I wish I was athletic and energetic like her). Watching her videos has been my favorite way to loose time, you have to check them out!
CHECKINTHEMIRROR- Rachel has quickly become one of my favorite beauty gurus ever. I just can’t get over how real and down to earth she is. She sounds like an amazing, real person, someone you could be friends with in real life. She’s one of the few gurus that never goes overboard with her beauty obsession, and I really like that. Plus, she’s just flawless, and that’s all I’ll say for now. Just check out her channel and you’ll love her!
LANDONAUSTIN- Landon was definitely my youtube crush of the month. Besides being sooo good loking, have you heard his voice? Then you should go and check out his music right now, I promise you won’t regret it!
And for beauty blogger of the month…
KISS & MAKEUP- I’ve always loved Melissa’s beauty blog, but this month is when the obsession really started. She’s just so amazing! She keeps her blog really professional, but with a personal touch, and does really informative reviews and a bunch of other fun things. I really love her blog, you have to check it out!
For music, I loved ONCE IN A LIFETIME, JUST GIVE ME A REASON (Landon’s version too), GET FREE and THE WAY. You have to check them out!
And my movie of the month was SAFE HAVEN. Based on the Nicholas Sparks novel, it’s about Katie, a woman from Boston who was suddenly forced to leave her husband. After a long trip, she found herself in North Carolina, where she later met someone… Alex let her into his life, and they quickly fell in love. And you probably know the rest of the story… I personally never read the book, but I really liked the movie. I loved the happy ending, and of course the guy who plays Alex is really attractive, so it’s worth watching!
And finally, I thought I should let you know about a couple really fun releases to look out for during the next month. The first one is the new THE GREAT GATSBY (awesome trailer here) movie with Leonardo di Caprio. Where I live, it’s coming out in may 10th, and I can assure you I will watch it. I actually read the book not that long ago, and I did watch the older movie with Robert Redford, but I’m really excited for a new version of it. Plus, who doesn’t love Leonardo di Caprio? We all do.
Also, 90210 is coming back this may! I’m really excited for season 5, even though I heard it’s really bad and it got cancelled half way through… But I’ll watch it anyway because I’m obsessed like that.
So that will be it for today, I hope you enjoyed my endless list of favorites. Feel free to leave a comment with any thoughts, suggestions or questions, I’d love to know what things you enjoyed this past month! Thanks for reading, sweeties! xx ♡♡♡
