April Favourites

Hello and welcome to my April favourites post, I realise that's very 'cheesy American tv host' but it's actually quite difficult to type up the first paragraph of this sort of post. As I'm nearing the 20,000 mark for page views I just want to say thank you to everyone reading and to everyone who has returned post after post since I started this blog in November.

Anyway, enough babbling on like an idiot, this month I've splashed out quite a bit and treated myself to a few items that, to be honest, I've been desperate for. Shoes were on the top of my list so I bought the pair in the image to the left, they were under £10 from Shoe Zone and what you can't really see from the image is that they are very much like chunky Toms but with a shiny black crocodile print. They are so comfy and they are great for the daily walk through the industrial estate on the way to work. 

I've also finally invested in some ripped skinny jeans from New Look, I've wanted a pair for ages so they've quickly made their way onto my favourites list. They are the perfect fit at size 12 and I'm fairly pleased with the way they look so I'll be buying jeans from New Look again in the future.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know how much I adore this bag from Zara, it's called The Ladylike Backpack on the site. I love everything down to the shape and colour of this bag, I tend to go for a more monochrome style so this cute Spring piece is the perfect accent of colour. Speaking of Spring style, the floral headband I got for my holiday to Tenerife last year is perfect for this time of the year. It isn't in store since it was part of last years collection but floral headbands are on sale everywhere. 

I mentioned the Drama Clean 5 in 1 Cleanser from Soap & Glory in My Latest Beauty HAUL and I'm loving it, it's fresh and fruity and does the job it's supposed to do. It's efficient in cleansing away my daily makeup and I'm liking it more than most of the other drugstore cleansers I've tried. 

The final item of my April favourites post is my new laptop, the Toshiba Satalite Pro which is equipped with AMD Radeon Graphics. It has something like a 17 inch screen so it's pretty damn big and it's very similar to my work laptop so I actually know how to use it! It's my first NEW laptop for a few years and I've made do with one that was broken and dated, it's great having a decent laptop to blog from.

So that's it for this months favourites post, sorry that it's not particularly lengthy but I haven't collected quite as many favourites as last month or the month before. 


  1. Love the hair accessory :)

    1. Thanks, it was my staple summer piece last year. :D

  2. Love the bag and the floral headband! I'm growing out my bangs, headbands will come in handy soon.

    1. Even without pushing back your bangs it would look cute, if you opt for a middle part and then place the headband comfortably you could quite easily create a 70s boho look. Xx
