It is March! That means almost Spring time. The lighter evenings are just lovely and I’m excited for the next few months. I don’t have too many favourites this month but I thought I’d share with you the things I’ve been loving!
Makeup Revolution / Love the Revolution Palette / £8
I got this palette free with my purchases in Superdrug and my oh my, it is fantastic! I have never tried any of the Makeup Revolution palettes before but I will definitely be buying more in the future! The pigmentation in this palette is pretty good and you don’t need much to cover your lids. I was unsure on the shades at first but I have grown to adore them. I have used this palette the most this month and it is definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. I used the red shade for a couple of nights out around about Valentine’s day and it was just gorgeous!
Makeup Revolution / Retro Luxe Lip Kit Matte / Glory / £6
I was absolutely ecstatic when I seen there was two of these lip kits left in Superdrug when I popped in. I was looking for a darker colour to wear on my lips that night so it was just my luck when it was the shade Glory that was left. Now, I absolutely loved this product to begin with. I had seen a lot online about how it was a great dupe for Kylie lip kits so I was desperate to try. The product dries pretty fact which is great. The product seemed to stay on my lips pretty well that night until I started drinking. That’s the only down side of this lip kit I would say, that it flakes off pretty easily when you’re drinking. I’m going to test out another shade of it as it might be because its such a dark shade. I absolutely love this product though, especially when I’m wearing it during the day as it stays on for ages.
Anastasia Beverly Hills / Dipbrow Pomade / Blonde / £15
No words. Absolutely no words can describe how INCREDIBLE this product is. People have been recommending me this product for ages now but I kept putting off buying it for some unknown reason. I was in Sephora in Paris and I kept going back to the ABH counter. The woman matched me with the shade ‘blonde’ which I thought would be far too light but it is absolutely perfect. This product is just incredible, it glides on your eyebrows so easily but then does not move all day. For someone with an incredibly oily forehead this is fab. It means that half way through the day I don’t find any eyebrow product needing to be wiped off my forehead. And that happens a lot with me. I just can’t get over how great dipbrow is. Sorry Benefit Browzings, it’s time to step over. It’s been a good haul.
Milly Johnson / The Birds and The Bees
Milly Johnson is probably my favourite author. None of her work ever disappoints me. This is definitely my favourite books of hers that I have read. I absolutely love it! What I love most about it is that everything isn’t perfect and happy from the get go. It is pretty realistic, which I feel you can relate to more. To anybody who loves a good chic-lit which will give you all the feels, then I definitely recommend giving this a read!
Romance writer and single mum Stevie Honeywell has only weeks to go to her wedding when her fiancé Matthew runs off with her glamorous new friend Jo MacLean. It feels like history repeating itself for Stevie, but this time she is determined to win back her man. She isn’t going to act as he might expect. She isn’t going to wail and dig her heels in, she is simply going to pretend to let him go whilst she pursues a mad course of dieting, exercising and self-improvement.
And it feels like history is repeating itself for Adam MacLean too, who is also determined to win his lady, Jo, back with the same basic psychological tactics. Then he is going to initiate his master plan: Getting together with Stevie to drive Jo wild with jealousy.
So, like the Scottish country jig ‘The Birds and the Bees’, the couples all change partners and learn some revealing truths about each other along the way. But what happens when Adam’s master plan actually starts to work? And just who will Stevie be dancing with when the music stops?
Apple Tree Yard / BBC One
Two of my colleagues recommended this four part British thriller to me. If you haven’t watched this, I definitely recommend it! It is absolutely fantastic and the ending is not predictable at all!
Apple Tree Yard is a British television thriller, adapted from the novel of the same name by Louise Doughty. The four-part series was commissioned in 2016 and the first episode had its premiere on BBC One on 22 January, 2017.Emily Watson stars as the novel’s original lead, Dr Yvonne Carmichael, with Ben Chaplin portraying the role of her lover, Mark Costley. Apple Tree Yard follows the story of Carmichael, an unhappily married forty-something scientist, who begins a secret affair with Costley whilst being completely unaware of his true identity.
And that’s about it for this month. I’ve just done a massive book order so I’m excited to share with you next month what my favourites from that were!
