Monthly Favourites…

Monthly Favourites April

Every month I convince myself that I’m going to be super organised & keep a list of things I’m loving! Of course every month I fail. Miserably. The ironic thing is, is that I LOVE lists… in fact I quite often find myself sneaking things I’ve already done onto them, just for the satisfaction of ticking them off. After all, it seems a waste of a good chore not to tick it off, are you with me organised ladies? Anyways, the point is: every month I’m left foraging around my mental notes for things I know I’m loving and can’t wait to tell you guys about, but end up drawing a blank. However, low and behold this last few weeks I’ve managed to successfully keep tabs on a few little goodies I’ve been reaching for the most. So without further ado, here’s my monthly favourites for y’all to feast your eyes on…

Revlon Photoready Concealer – Light

Revlon Photoready Concealer

No monthly favourites would be complete without a standard makeup staple & this month I’ve been loving the Revlon Photoready Concealer. As opposed to some of the usual doe-foot liquid-applicator concealers I’ve used in the past, this one has the same format as a lippy – and honestly it’s sooooo much easier to apply. Granted, it’s a little thicker than most concealers but it’s done an awesome job of keeping the patches where my face drinks my foundation the most well covered and looking fresh for as long as possible. Big thumbs up from moi 😉


Nail HQ Cuticle Oil

Nail HQ Cuticle Oil

Apart from being made and manufactured in good old Blighty, this is a fabulous cuticle oil. It’s not overly greasy like some I’ve used in the past and it hasn’t got a bizarre odour either. Although I’m a fan of savvy scents, this is a great happy medium for everyone as it’s not perfumed or infused with any kind of sweet/sickly smell. Just a great cuticle oil that’s been a life saver to saving the dire state of my own disastrous digits in these post winter months. Yaa hoo!


Rio Nail Art Pens – Neon Collection

Rio Nail Art Set

You gals know how much I love to dress up my nails with fun little nail art shenanigans, and although I’ve had this cute set of Rio Professional Nail Art Pens for a few years now it quite often stays in hibernation until spring/summer when the colourful polishes come out of hibernation. This week I’ve been falling in love with polka dot nails all over again & these little pens are the perfect tool for dotting… OR stripping as they have alternative lids to meet all your nail art demands. Pretty cool huh?


Nail Stamping Kit

Nail Stamping Kit

Yep, I’m at it again… yet another nail art favourite. I just can’t seem to help myself this weather. But having created the most gorgeous little ombre animal nail prints, which you can check out for yourself by *Clicking Here* , I’m totally smitten with the endless possibilities this fabulous stamping kit has to offer! If you fancy taking a peak at it in action then *Click Here* to visit this weeks upload where you can see me demonstrating it in a fun how-to style video.

Pearl Drops Hollywood Smile Teeth Whitener

Pearl Drops Ultimate Whitening

I’ve been hoarding this in my drawer for ages and finally it’s seen the light of day and got put to use a few weeks ago. I have to say I’m really beginning to notice a difference as my teeth are appearing a whole lot more shinier than before. Matching this up with my sensitive tooth paste, I now feel I’m well on my way to a much healthier looking smile 😀 Such an affordable and easy way to gently brighten and whiten your teeth!

  1. The concealer, cuticle oil and teeth whitener sound great! I hope your nails are feeling and looking a lot healthier now? I remember you saying they were quite dry and always chipping. I keep a Word document with a list of all my monthly favourites past and present. I like to keep what I’ve already included so I know not to repeat myself 😊 xx

  2. Revlon makes really good products. Haven’t tried that concealer. But, since you like it, it must be good 🙂 teeth whitener is always good. (Some of my teeth are stained from drinking too much soft drinks. That’s right soft drinks. Yayyy for the nail art! 🙂 Happppppy Friday!!! Finally 😀 xoxo

    • It’s kind of been something I’ve dipped in and out off Jessica, but I have to say a polish like this isn’t anywhere near as scary for me as what a whitening kit would be! I have my limits lol Great polish and working well so far huni! Hope you’re having a great weekend & keeping as well as can be! Lovely to get a little chatter with you as always 🙂 XXXXX


    • I swear Anne, Amazon is coming down with them, but be warned their is some gorrrrgeous stamping plates with floral designs and all sorts of pretty things that would look tremendous *sigh* I swear blogging has me broke! lol XXXXX
