April 2014 Favourites


First up I apologise for April favourites being a bit late. It’s been a bit of a hectic last couple of weeks. It was my birthday, I got a horrible cold, and I got engaged! But now I’ve finally got round to it, I might as well dive straight in!

Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede Cologne – This perfume was a cheeky treat to myself when I was in John Lewis shopping with my now fiancé. I have loved this fragrance for months, ever since a sample was sent to me. In my opinion it’s the best of all the Jo Malone fragrances. It’s floral and light, but has a hint of rich fruitiness. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer.

Mavala Nail Polish in Sand Rose – I am a huge fan of Mavala polishes and I am building up quite a collection now. I liked this one because it was much warmer than the normal nudes you get. It’s a pinky peach on the nails with an ever-so subtle hint of pearlescent shine. It wears really well and looks great with everything. As I discovered the other day, it’s a great base for nail art designs too.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic – After my last toner disaster, I was quite nervous to try this, but I really didn’t need to be. It has suited my skin so well. The fragrance is a bit mature, but it leaves my skin feeling really fresh and clean but not dry or tight, thank goodness!

Body Shop Ceramic Crackled Oil Burner – I just think this oil burner is such a beautiful accessory for the home. It looks gorgeous, and gives a really lovely subtle fragrance to a room.

Necklace – This gorgeous necklace is from Marks and Spencer. I spotted it while out shopping for my birthday, I liked it instantly because its so colourful and I knew it would look great with loads of different outfits, but it was £15 so I decided not to buy it. I went off to have my hair cut and when I got back my amazing mum had bought it for me! I love it because it makes a statement without being over the top or too in your face. I have been wearing it with simple silver or black studs.

Modern Family – My last favourite this month is a TV show which I have been binge watching over the last few weeks. The first two seasons of Modern Family are on UK Netflix and I have been watching it so much I am almost done and will have to find season 3 elsewhere. I just think its the perfect show for some light relief, as it’s funny, the writing is clever, and it isn’t too long so will fit in any time.

  1. You got engaged??! Whaaat? Congratulations! (Btw, this is Jen from barely organized chaos; I’ve since moved blogs. Hence my familiar manner with you. :P)

    I recently got the soapstone burner from The Body Shop and I really love it. It’s so pretty and it disperses the scent really well. What’s your favorite scent? I like the ginger one from the holidays, Exotic, and of course, Satsuma!

    • Hi Jen, thanks!

      I’ve only tried the Lavender fragrance so far but I definitely want to try more. I can imagine loooving Satsuma, because I love all the Body Shop Satsuma range!

      • Oh man, we don’t have the lavender one in the US anymore! Bummer, my sister would love it.

        If you can find strawberry, try mixing satsuma and strawberry together. We’re on a long term out of stock for strawberry, so I’m waiting for them to restock so I can try it. 🙂

  2. congratulations on your engagement Rebecca! That’s fantastic news!! 🙂 I adore the candle… it’s so pretty! 🙂 I’m also looking for a new toner, so I’ll be sure to check out the one you mentioned!
