Hiya again you lovely lot and thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great Easter weekend so far and life is being kind to you all...
Is it just me or is this year going really fast? March seems like it’s over in a blur. I can’t believe it’s April already but I can’t say I’m not happy about it. I love this time of year when we have the whole summer ahead of us in the UK.
This last week has been a bit of a crazy week for me and I seem to have been super stressed out,tired and a little bit forgetful.
Wednesday was probably my lowest day. All day I was checking the mirror thinking “gosh I look so tired and ill” it wasn’t till I was taking off my full face of makeup I realised I’d gone the whole day without putting my full eye makeup on. I had completely forgot!! No one told me but when I mentioned it people had noticed!!!
Anyway enough about my week and on with what I’ve loved in March.

This month I’ve been making the most of all the 3 for 2s that have been on offer in my local stores and even doing some cheeky little ( or big!!!) online orders. Some of which I have enjoyed using and have become new favourites and some I’m just not going to mention.

This month with makeup I have found myself really enjoying the customised palette trend. I’ve got two on the go at the moment the PS BEAUTY from Primark and MAKEUP OBSESSION one from Tam Beauty. The Primark is the cheapest at 60p a refill shade but I think it’s the Makeup Obsession one that I prefer solely for the choice of shades. Pigmentation I would say is probably simular on each. I will leave the links below of both the palettes...

I’m not going to lie I’m not very good at applying fake tan. I have stayed away from using it really as I am scared of looking really bad. ( well worse than I usually do.)
I was kindly gifted the SUPERDRUG SOLAIT GRADUAL TAN LOTION £3.49. so it would have been rude not to try it. The fragrance of this is so nice and it feels more like a body lotion than a tanning product. With the tan being so subtle, you can’t really go wrong and you can build it up if you want to go darker so no scary orange shades here.
It’s on offer at the moment so I will leave you the link below just in case you fancy trying it out for yourself.

The foundation that I have been loving is the PS MY PERFECT COLOUR FOUNDATION £5. This foundation is one of my new favourites. These seem to have been a complete sell out in many Primark stores and I know my local one has sold out of most of the shades.
It’s ment to be a dupe for the Estée Lauder Double Wear so when I found this information out I knew I had to give it a try. The shade I did pick up is a tiny bit light for me and I would love a slightly darker one but the formula is amazing a definitely worth a try if your local store has your right shade for you.
I have done a post about it if you fancy a quick read.

Another product I have been loving this month  are the new face products from L’Oreal..
(I have talked about the Naturally Radiant skin care products from Superdrug in nearly every months favourites post so I thought it was time I gave another skincare product a chance!!!)
The L’Oreal product I have been enjoying is the Smooth Scrub with Kiwi bits in. These make your skin feel really soft and it has cleared my skin up really well. They are usually £9.99 but are on offer at the moment in Superdrug. So it’s worth checking them out now as £9.99 is quite expensive for a scrub. The product is multi use which does make up for the fact that it is quite expensive when not on offer. I haven’t done a full review post on this yet but will do if anyone wants one.
The Body Mists I have been loving are the SUPERDRUG LAYERING LAB BODY MIST £3.99
I have mentioned these before in a post as being a favourite but these are two new fragrances to the range. Exotic and Blossom. When I heard that these fragrances were similar in smell to Angel and Black Opium, well you guys know what I’m like! I do love a good dupe, so they went straight in my little basket to buy. These are best to buy when they are half price, but they really do smell similar and I will definitely repurchase EXOTIC again as I actually own a bottle of Black Opium and it does compliment it really well.

My favourite fragrance this month is the new ARIANA GRANDE MOONLIGHT £23 fragrance.
This might be due to the fact that mini Juelook ( that’s my daughter by the way) loves this so it reminds me of her. It’s such a sweet smelling fragrance and the bottle does include one of Arianas trademark Pom Poms. So what’s not to love.

Another gifted product that I have been loving is the SUPERDRUG SPAA RETREAT BERAMOT AND CASSIS  BATH MILK. £3.99.
Not only does it make your bath all foamy but it smells gorgeous and even makes your bathroom smell of the product as well. The bottle is beautiful with the marble packaging which shouldn’t be important but it kinda is!!
I’ve left you the link just in case you fancy giving it a try yourself.

Clothing wise. I now love that Spring is here and we can start buying new season clothing. I completely love the 3/4 length wide leg trousers that are popular at the moment. I have been living in my PRIMARK £3 ones throughout March and have been teaming them with my Vans. I bought these from Primark a few weeks back and they said £8 on them. When they rung in at the till they were actually £3. A complete bargain!!!! Well they would have been but I went back for another 2 pairs. So I ended up spending £9 but I did get 3 pairs of trousers out of it so not all bad!!!

Television wise I’ve been loving BENIDORM, which really makes me want to go on holiday. Even though I don’t think the series is as good as it has been in the past I still watch it and it’s going into the favourites just because it’s somewhere sunny!
On to Music ... I’m still loving THE GREATEST SHOWMAN soundtrack and can not wait for the Dvd. ( it’s released here in the UK in May). It’s such feel good music and I just can’t help singing along. Another tune I have been loving is CHVRCHES GET OUT. Which I think is another feel good tune.
I would love to hear what you have been loving this month!
Until next time
