My April Favourite Books

1. We Should All Be Feminists// Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche – This is an inspirational short read about why we should all be feminists. Beautifully written.

2. The Little Book of Confidence// Susan Jeffers – This book is literally so tiny and therefore easy to pop in your bag when you need a hit of motivation for the day. It is a book that you can read over and over again for that little bit of advice that you need to be able to tackle the day.

3. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff// Richard Carlson – This is my all time favourite self help book. I always find myself coming back to the book over and over because the message that the author postulates is a question that I will always remember whenever I start to worry… “will it matter in five years?” and the answer is always always ‘no!’. So don’t sweat the small stuff because it really doesn’t matter in the bigger scheme of things.

4. Change your Thoughts, Change your Life // Wayne Dyer – I haven’t finished reading this as of yet but I am loving this! You can change your world if you change the way you think. Easier said than done but it gives you the fundamentals as to how to achieve this.

December Favourites 2014

These are my favourite products for the month of December 2014!

Mac Lightful Marine Bright Formula Serum

Trust me when I say that this serum is awesome! I’m not really great with giving reviews on products but It has an instant effect on the face – making it appear smooth from the outset. The texture of my skin has definitely changed after using this for a few days.

Mac Lightful Marine Bright Formula Moisture Creme

The same can be said for this product. When I started using this my skin appeared so smooth the very next day. This is definitely my HG product. It is a little pricey but it is totally worth it for what you get.

Cha Cha Tint by Benefit Cosmetics

This tinted blusher is the best colour for my darker skin tone. It gives a very natural flush of colour on the cheeks. I have an extensive collection of blushes – this is by far my favourite!

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle

Only started using this a couple of weeks ago but it is already my favourite highlighter. It is quite pigmented so I only need to use a little. I find that it is perfect if you contour your face for those extra made up days.

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Perfume 15ml

This will always be my favourite perfume. It’s going to be my favourite in January I’m sure of it.

Body Shop Leona Lewis Blush Brush (discontinued)

I slept on this brush. I got it a very long time ago in the Body Shop sale but because of the vast amount of brushes that I have, I neglected using it. I have found that It gives the perfect application that you need when applying product to the cheeks.

Mac Pro Longwear in NC45

I never thought that I would ever find a Mac foundation that I actually liked. I tried Studio Fix, Face and Body foundation and even Match Master foundation but when I say that this foundation suits me to a T. I am so happy that I saw that review on YouTube about this foundation because it made me actually go to the MAC store to test it out. I was impressed with the results of the application and the staying power that it possesses.

Mac Lip Conditioner

My lips get really dry throughout the day. I tried this little beauty and I was not disappointed! This lip conditioner truly conditions your lips. The more that you use it, the less you have to use it overall. It is quite pricey but I would definitely get it again if I had to.

Ben Nye Banana Powder

I had a bit of mixed reviews on this product initially but as soon as I found the correct way to apply this – it gave my skin a flawless finish. It is worth all the hype fortunately.

Lush Vanillary Solid Perfume

This is my favourite natural perfume from Lush. You can literally be creative with it. Put it in your hair, your pulse points – anywhere that can do with a gust of vanilla fragrance.

Bristle Hairbrush (from any beauty supply store)
