April 2018 Favourites

I don't want to jinx it but I seem to be on a roll with posts at the moment. It feels so good to actually be posting again. I can't remember the last time I wrote and posted regularly. It's definitely been about 6 months.

Anyway April has flown by. My baby brother is now 19 and I feel super old. May means I turn 25. On the plus side my car insurance finally goes down a lot because apparently over 25 year olds drive like saints. My best friend also gets married in May and I cannot wait for the big day. Plus I'll be reunited with all my uni friends. We haven't seen each other in forever. May is going to be a good month. I can feel it.

So here's what I loved in April. Once again it's a fair bit of skincare. I feel like next month there will be more makeup featured.

Read in March 2018 Part 2

I managed to read 5 books in march which is pretty good for me so I split them into 2 posts (part 1 here). I actually posted the first part at the beginning of the month and have somehow managed to procrastinate so much that this one is going up a tad later than I planned.  Part 2 is Just a Brian Freeman review and I am in Love with the Frost Easton series. I need more asap.

Top 3 Cruelty Free Mascaras

As you may know, I am trying to switch all my makeup to cruelty free brands (still struggling with foundation so hit me up with your faves for dry skin). That has meant saying goodbye to the Maybelline mascaras I used to swear by. I am blessed with long lashes so I tend to pick mascaras that offer all the volume. I also used to only use brands on the cheaper end of the spectrum. However, I have recently been sucked into higher end mascaras and it kills me a little bit but they are just so damn good. So these are my top 3 cruelty free mascaras. I pretty much just rotate between these 3.

The Vegan Kind April 2018 Lifestyle Box

I've been meaning to write this post for ages but I just haven't been able to take photos. I've either been too busy or too exhausted/in pain. I finally managed to take a few pictures today so hopefully that means I should be able to get a few more posts out soon. It also means that I've been able to dig into this months Vegan Kind Lifestyle Box

The recipe in this months box is a Sesame crusted tofu with peanut dipping sauce by Ginger Vegan. 10p from every box is also donated to Karass who are an animal sanctuary currently home to over 50 rescued farmed animals. Now onto the delicious things that came in this months box...

Read in March 2018 Part 1

I actually managed to read quite a lot this month. These 3 I read in just over a week because I was on holiday in France and what are holidays for if not constantly reading. I mean it was too cold to get out of bed so really that's all I could do. Well, that and eat all the delicious French food. I decided to split this months books into 2 parts so that the post isn't too long. You can read part 2 here. So here's what I read in March Part 1.
