My April Favourites

My April Favourites
It's that time of the month again where I sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and think about all the products I have been using recently and what deserves to be in my monthly favourites. This month's favourites includes a cluster of new bits I have either guiltily bought or have been kindly sent out to try.

I am a massive enthusiast for pancakes and for upping my intake on protein for the gym, so these were perfect for me. These were so quick and easy to make and is the perfect breakfast for filling you up right until lunch time. I had mine with lemon juice and strawberries and could honestly not taste the difference between these and original pancakes. Exante do some amazing dietary snacks that help you loose or maintain your weight at an affordable price. Seriously, some of their shakes and snacks are to die for.

YSL Touche Eclat
It's hard work to achieve flawless eyes, you could have your 8 hours sleep, drink plenty of water and still look rough. This is where YSL comes in to save the day. I love this highlighting pen for brightening up my under eyes and adding a lovely glow to my skin. This highlighter instantly wakes my eyes up and almost lifts them from those dark clouds I carry. Totally worth the price tag this one!

I have always been a fan of Topshop's beauty range so I was thrilled to be able to try one of their new Everything Sticks. This is the perfect, effortless makeup application that can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips. These are so long lasting and really handy if you are on the go or in a bit of a rush. I personally like wearing them on my lips but I just love the idea of being able to use them in other areas.

Barry M Gel Shine
I have recently been drawn to painting my nails white or a very light blush pink shade. Barry M always sell lovely shades that are so easy to apply and never leave you with chipped nails. I have mentioned a couple of times that painting my nails is a chore, but with these Gel Shine Polishes I can get my nails painted and dried within 5 minutes. Which works for me.

I am always drawn to yummy scented shower gels and this one is pink, so already it was appealing on the eye. Dragon fruit mixed with vanilla seems like an odd scent but holy moly this smelt so delicious that I was tempted to eat it! Superdrug sell some really nice fruit, affordable shower gels with some amazing scents that are perfect for summer.

I was kindly sent the most beautiful parcel from The Cracker Drinks Company that included some of their delicious fruit drinks. These drinks are going to be amazing for summer because they are so refreshing and taste incredibly yummy. I have been having a glass of cold cloudy lemonade with ice in my Mason jar whenever I fancy something fruity and it really tastes good. Not full of sugars or artificial colours so I am able to drink these guilt-free!

Beauty Hacks by Esme Floyd
I recently spotted this book on Amazon along with Fashion and Health Hack books too and could not believe my eyes. I love reading and learning about hacks that can save you time and effort, so of course it was only right for me to buy this book. I have already been post-it-noting pages that have handy tips and I am considering writing a blog post on some hacks I have learnt from this book. Let me know if you'd be interested!

What have you loved in April??
