April 2015 Favourites

May 6, 2015

The month of April has been and gone and that only means one thing, a new monthly favourites post! I’m a few days late uploading this one and we are into May already, it has been a hard week around here with a teething toddler!

Below are my top 5 things that I have been loving in April 2015. They are a little random with a TV show, a song, a drink, a girly product and some media love. Hopefully you enjoy the variety this month.

**As always, I haven’t been paid or asked to promote anything to you, this doesn’t include any baby items and they are in no particular order**

Sit down, get comfy and lets begin;

1- ‘The Fall’ TV Programme

My biggest obsession of the month by far was a TV programme called ‘The Fall’. I literally could not stop watching it.
It is a British drama staring Jamie Dornan (50 Shades of Gray) who plays a serial killer and Gillian Anderson (X-Files) is the police detective who has to find the killer before he strikes again. It was dark, twisted and addictive! Definitely worth watching!
All my favourite shows and movies just now are all crime thrillers so it’s no surprise that The Fall appealed to me and I binged both season 1 & 2 in 10 days.

2- Peppermint Tea

Ok, I know this sounds a little bit lame why I would put peppermint tea in a favourites post but there is a good reason – I’m a total caffeine addict. The problem is that every time I have a cup of tea I’m in the naughty habit to have something sweet along with it. If I switch to peppermint tea I don’t have the same caffeine intake and chocolate biscuits don’t taste good dunked in a peppermint tea, so less caffeine and less calories. Hoorah!

3- Likes on Facebook & Instagram
FB likes

I have been in a bit of a funk recently, after some annoying comments and lack of blog inspiration and opportunities I questioned whether I should just shut all my media pages down and just call it a day. But then something fantastic happened and my creative side sprung back to life, thanks to you guys! April saw my Facebook page reach 5,000 likes and over 600 Instagram followers and I’m feeling the love again! You guys are awesome!
Since then I have dusted off my camera and got out and about to keep bringing you the blog content that you enjoy. Thank you to you all for your support and giving me to motivation to keep seeking out new adventures!

4- Favourite song
Lost Frequencies

The one song that I’m loving right now is a song called “Are you with me” by Lost Frequencies. After hearing it on MTV it has been a firm favourite on my play list ever since.
You can listen to it here on You Tube – Lost Frequencies. I’ll warn you now, It’s catchy!

5- Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer

When the days are so hot and humid that make up literally slides down your face this product is my saviour – This is Double Wear concealer from Estee Lauder. For day to day wear in the summer I have mostly given up on foundation as it doesn’t last long in the humidity. This product stops me looking like an extra from The Walking Dead and covers the blemishes and dark circles without being too cakey.
I use the shade 01 light because I’m ghostly pale. This is a summer must have, ladies.

And that’s it, April in a nutshell! I’m looking forward to seeing what the next month brings and what I will be addicted to next.

What are your favourite things from the month gone by? I would love to hear from you!

    Ooo I must get me some of that concealer, I just can’t make the melted makeup look work for me anymore :-p And congratulations on the likes! Very well deserved. I can’t believe you have EVER thought about quitting, but I’m glad you didn’t 🙂

      Yes! I would highly recommend the concealer. I was going to venture to MAC and then I found this little beauty at Estee Lauder, it is a total saviour.

      Haha I feel like I’ve been doing this blogging malarkey for a long time in Oman now, some days I wonder how long I will keep going. But for now I’m back and happy to be here 🙂 🙂

    I love that song you posted; I’ll have to add it to my playlist as well! In April, I was lucky to visit Hong Kong and Xi’an to see the Terra Cotta Warriors. I also finished up my addiction to Scandal, as I watched all the seasons available. So sad to see it end for now. Now I’m back to Homeland Season 3 and am loving it too. I’ll have to check out The Fall. 🙂

      Hey Cathy!
      Nice to have another Scandal addict along with us 🙂 I love it too! Homeland is something that I just couldn’t get into, it wasn’t fast enough for me. I might try and revisit it again some day.

      Hope that you had a fab time in Hong Kong, it sounds like an amazing place. I managed to see Bid Bid today, I totally agree on your views! look out for a post on that soon 😉
