April Favourites 2016


It feels like it’s been ages since I last wrote a favourites post but in March I honestly didn’t have anything to share with you. I sometimes feel as if my favourites are a bit repetitive and while I’m committed to them being a regular series on my blog, I also don’t want them to be forced either.

As with many things in life it can be hard to strike a balance but that aside this month I had a lot I wanted to share with you!

Butter bomb // This month I’ve been really working on my self-care routine and I quickly found that I’m at my most productive when I am at my most relaxed. I’ve gotten in to a bit of a routine as of late and every Sunday night I like to chill in the bath with a Lush bath bomb. The butter ball and butter bear are my absolute fave’s and this month they have been a must.

Frizz Ease Forever Smooth shampoo and conditioner // Overall I have pretty thin hair but the trouble is I have a lot of it and so a moisturising shampoo is an absolute must. I’m usually pretty reluctant to change my hair products but I am so glad that I did. Find more information about the Frizz Ease Forever Smooth shampoo and conditioner by checking out this link.

House // My ex-boyfriend was obsessed with this cult tv show and I never really got the bug (get it? Doctor? Hospital? Bug?). I mean I did sit through a few of the shows and they were ok but I was never really gripped by it. That has recently changed because thankS to Netflix I have been binging on these throughout April.

Freshmeat // I started watching Freshmeat at some point in university and I always thought it was a funny and relatable show but due to the university lifestyle I never watched more than the first series. Seeing that it had recently come to an end, I decided to purchase the entire boxset on iTunes and watched it from start to finish. I absolutely loved it, I love the characters, the humour and the subtle way that it almost makes political statements about the current issues faced by our debt ridden grads.

Paul O’Grady Orphan Animals // If you haven’t already watched this then you need to because this show is thought-provoking and could seriously change the way you view the world. I fell in love with little Archie the orang-utan and immediately become determined to learn more about deforestation. I’m a huge fan of O’Grady anyway but he seems to have such a natural way of talking to the animals and I love watching him with them. A beautiful series.

Sisters // This is one hell of a laugh out loud film and is definitely one to watch with your girlfriends. It’s hysterical, emotional and seriously smart in a way that only Amy Poehler and Tine Fey can be.

Stack // I honestly don’t play many games on my iPhone but I’ve lately been addicted to this one, it’s mind-numbingly simple in the way that games should be. Plus it’s extremely calming.

Recolor // So as the name suggests this app is all about colouring and another good way to tackle those anxious thoughts on the go. I LOVE this app and so do all my family because it’s an excellent way of escaping our sometimes grey and routined life.

Banging book club // If you haven’t heard of this it was started by three youtubers and seeing as I’ve set myself a rather ambitious reading target this year I decided that I wanted to join in. I joined late but so far I’ve read exactly two of the books, the kind of books that I wouldn’t usually pick up. I love that it’s helped broadened my horizons on the book front and I can’t wait to read the remaining texts.

A mother’s Reckoning by Sue Klebold // This book is written by Sue Klebold, the mother of Dylan Klebold one of the Columbine shooters. It’s a tragic story but one that offers an alternative view, emphasising the role that mental health played in the tragedy. It’s thought provoking and incredibly powerful but more than that, it’s so brave. It’s worth reading if you’re interested in psychology or crime.

All the Rage by Courtney Summers // This is one of the aforementioned books from the reading list and I must admit that initially I wasn’t sold. It took me a few chapters to really get in to but as soon as I did, I was hooked. I won’t say too much because I’ve written a full review on Goodreads but it’s awesome and you should read it.

Bullet Journal // I’ve been using a bullet journal for ages now but this month I’ve really worked on it’s functionality and I must admit that I really love it! I’ve been so inspired by everyone else’s unique idea’s and it’s really helped me bring mine to life.

So that’s it for me but what have you been loving this month?
